A few days ago, Arrow producers offered a bit more insight into the Legends of Tomorrow table-setting both it and The Flash would endeavor in their new episodes this fall. Not only does that apparently extend to the introduction of Hawkman as well, but so too do we have our first real character details of the Legends incarnation.
Arrow met with a bit of resistance in yesterday’s casting of DC’s Baron Blitzkrieg, but for anyone opposed to Season 4’s latest addition, resistance is futile (Yes, I’m paid to do this). Star Trek: Voyager alum and fan-favorite Jeri Ryan will trade Borg implants for arrows in a new Season 4 role, one which might earn a target on her back.
Arrow isn’t usually one to court controversy, though eyebrows understandably raised with yesterday’s Season 4 casting of DC supervillain Baron Blitzkrieg, not only for the character’s notable Nazi affiliation, but in casting actor Jimmy Akingbola for the role. Now, Arrow showrunner Marc Guggenheim explains how the Nazi elements will be dropped, also teasing Oliver’s new flashback journey.
If you’re anything like us, eyebrows naturally raised when The CW upped its Arrow ante from a Flash spinoff to the madcap Legends of Tomorrow cast and premise. It’s too early to know exactly how the time-travel teamup will pan out, but already its showrunner teases that not everyone will return for Season 2, and future Legends could look very different, potentially even subtitling each year, and with a limited shelf-life built in.
Arrow Season 4 hasn’t exactly been shy with its casting details, though the fourth year flashbacks have been somewhat shrouded in mystery. Now, British actor Jimmy Akingbola has joined in the flashback role of DC villain Baron Blitzkrieg, but what might it mean for Oliver’s latest expositionary chapter?
The moment DC’s Legends of Tomorrow entered development, Arrow fans scratched their heads at the inclusion of Caity Lotz’s (then-deceased) Sara Lance, before it became official that a Lazarus Pit would give birth to the “White Canary.” Now, we’ve learned that Arrow Season 4 will deal directly with Sara’s return first, building to a crossover event that leads into Legends of Tomorrow.
Arrow Season 4 stole a bit of spotlight from Comic-Con 2015 in introducing Oliver’s flashy new threads, but The Flash Season 2 better lives up to that description with an upgrade of his own. Barry Allen is rocking some classic white lightning for his Season 2 costume, but what might it mean for the speedy CW series?
For as much as Comic-Con 2015 and beyond revealed of Arrow Season 4, we don’t yet have the clearest picture what Oliver will be doing in flashback this year, other than the vague suggestion that the younger Mr. Queen will head to Green Lantern’s hometown of Coast City. The series has alluded to Green Lantern on a number of occasions, but is a Season 4 appearance really in the cards?
It’s been a week for DC castings, between Flash-y new additions and new Gotham love interests, and only hours after Arrow Season 4 added itself a Terrific new hero, so too will a new villain make anarchy reign. Bates Motel star Alexander Calvert will face off against the Green Arrow in Season 4, debuting in Star City as DC villain “Anarky.”
The Flash has stolen the spotlight of late with its DC castings, but Arrow Season 4 has finally caught up with a Terrific new addition. Sean Saves the World alum Echo Kellum will join Team Arrow when Oliver Queen returns to Starling City, suiting up as DC superhero Mr. Terrific.
