The Flash has a habit of arriving at classic characters in roundabout ways, whether Reverse Flash or the real Jay Garrick, but Season 2's sly introduction of the Black Flash may not bear fruit just yet. Producers have no immediate plans to return the character for Season 3, even as Barry has yet another demonic speedster on his plate.

Long before Supergirl even had a Season 2 renewal, producers declared their intent to introduce past Wonder Woman star Lynda Carter in a stately new role. The day has finally arrived, as a new Supergirl Season 2 photo pairs a wondrous woman with the Maiden of Might, as shooting continues up north.
Even as The CW becomes a conglomerate of TV superheroes, you didn’t think the young-skewing network would let vampires go, did you? With The Vampire Diaries on its way out, and The Originals approaching a middle, The CW has in mind to reboot vampire classic The Lost Boys with a surprisingly ambitious generational twist.
Whether or not you buy Joss Whedon hanging around the Arrow-verse, it looks like another Marvel star is making the leap. With Jessica Jones Season 2 off in the distance, Wil Traval will become a Human Target for Arrow’s fifth run, once again trying to protect a brooding hero.
There’s still a great deal of mystery around The Flash Season 3, not the least of which will finally introduce Mirror Master, and return an old friend. Or is that foe? Yes, Wentworth Miller’s Captain Cold will return for a chilly rivalry with the next generation of Flash rogues, including a gender-swapped version of The Top.
Arrow Season 5 has made clear enough its intent for Oliver to build a new team of heroes, one we thought an some point to include Colton Haynes’ Roy Harper. The actor certainly suggested as much in passing, but certain Scream Queens may have a monopoly on Haynes’ time, preventing an immediate Arrow return.
The Flash set us up for a pretty pointed twist on the norm in Season 3, enough that the presence of yet another evil speedster on set raised more than a few eyebrows. We’ve since learned that two villains will menace The Flash this year, but why bother with another speed demon? A producer has the answer – plus, a bit of clarification on “Flashpoint” changes to the surrounding universes.
DC and The CW have a habit of granting practical wishes of fans and reporters, to the point that fan-fervor brought Constantine’s Arrow appearance, the Flash-Supergirl crossover and more, most recently cementing a musical crossover for the latter two in 2017. Recent rumors have suggested that Joss Whedon himself might direct the two-part musical extravaganza, with Neil Patrick Harris to boot, but is there any truth to them?
The Arrow-verse may feel a bit busier than usual this year, to add both Supergirl and a host of other DC heroes and villains to the ranks. Unfortunately, that crowded feeling might push Matt Ryan’s John Constantine to the fringe, as Arrow bosses have no plans to return the character in any capacity just yet.
Supergirl may have broken down the wall keeping major DC heroes like Superman off of TV, but despite recent rumors, no one from the Bat-family will be joining the Arrow-verse anytime soon. Executive producer Greg Berlanti shoots down recent speculation, as well that they’d even tried to bring Bruce Wayne to Star City.
