Just yesterday, The CW’s Legends of Tomorrow awoke one of its heaviest hitters in casting Hawkman for the 2015 Arrow / Flash crossover, and so too has its opposing evil ridden. Danish actor Casper Crump will play the immortal role of DC’s Vandal Savage, also first appearing in the crossover special.

In case Mark Hamill’s “Tricksters” return didn’t drive the point home, our sleek, modern CW Flash has tremendous reverence for the old 1990 CBS series, finding a place for nearly all of its stars. That reverence just kicked into overdrive, as all of the original Flash series is now available to stream online with CW Seed.

A few weeks ago, fans learned the exciting DC news that not only would Hawkman join Ciara Renee’s Hawkgirl in 2016's Legends of Tomorrow, but also that we’d meet the character even earlier on either Arrow or The Flash. As it turns out, both! Reckless star Falk Hentschel will don Hawkman’s wings, first appearing as Carter Hall in the end-of-year crossover event.

Look, we’ve all heard some pretty out-there pitches in TV land over the years, where once upon a time Sharknado was a nonsense word. The CW too has been guilty of this, and if “Sexy Mary, Queen of Scots“ can work, why not a gritty, “hyper-stylized” and dystopian take on Little Women? Okay, we may need a minute with this one.

Sporting a brand-new comic-friendly suit in Arrow Season 4, as well finally assuming the moniker of Green Arrow, Stephen Amell will take the CW character ever-closer to his DC roots by the fall return. That said, Amell hilariously refuted a suggestion that we’ll ever see The CW’s Oliver Queen sporting the comic character’s famous facial hair.

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.

‘Legends of Tomorrow’ Teases Cast, Premise Changes: ‘This Is Not Designed to Go Forever’

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?
