The early timing of Comic-Con 2015 prevented The Flash or Arrow from debuting any new footage of the fall, despite a myriad set photo teases since, but it seems Barry Allen has won the race. Watch The Flash face off against Atom Smasher, and check out Barry’s Bat-Signal in our first official Season 2 teaser footage!

The CW’s Arrow has a world of work ahead of it in Season 4, already returning Oliver to the vigilante lifestyle with some slick new duds and a new name, and it seems the ex-billionaire vigilante will have a shiny new lair to go with it all. Sneak a peek at the “Arrow Bunker” in new concept art from the fourth CW season!
We’ve known for some time that The Flash would introduce a second (now third) speedster in Wally West, revealed last week in casting Keiynan Lonsdale, though the character’s familial relationship was left somewhat unclear. New showrunner insight teases the speedsters’ relationship, while Season 2 has also begun casting DC villain (or hero?) Doctor Light.
Arrow Season 4 shocked and delighted DC fans with news that Warner Bros. had actually approved Matt Ryan‘s now-canceled Constantine to crop up in Starling City for a crossover, many speculating what would bring the demon-fighter into Oliver Queen’s world. Now, new details confirm that Constantine will have a hand in Sara Lance’s pre-Legends resurrection, among other surprises.
Jason Voorhees’ Friday the 13th future has proven a bit difficult to hack through, between multiple reboots of style and story, and even a Crystal Lake Chronicles TV series in development. Things may have cleared on the TV side at least, as The CW is apparently developing a more straight-forward adaptation of Friday the 13th.
We’ve known since The Flash’s first season finale that Golden Age speedster Jay Garrick would put in an appearance alongside Barry Allen, cemented at Comic-Con 2015 with the casting of Teddy Sears, and now the CW drama pays homage to its DC roots in a major way. Check out our first look at Flash Season 2's Jay Garrick, recreating a classic comic cover!
The untimely (and repeated) cancellation of NBC’s Constantine didn’t stop the rumor mill from suggesting that Arrow Season 4 might pickup the DC demon-fighting detective for a crossover event, though rights issues seemingly tangled things up. Whatever magic spell Constantine seems to have cast has worked, as Matt Ryan will officially reprise the role in Arrow Season 4!
It’s reasonably safe to presume that Nicholas Sparks’ theater pull has waned somewhat in the years following The Notebook, so where does one in need of a new frontier go? TV! Yes, The Notebook is coming to the small screen, on The CW of course, and already tissue stock is rising.
The CW’s Arrow hasn’t proven quite so forthcoming with its Season 4 plot, though the fourth outing for Oliver Queen and co. has even more fresh blood in store. True Blood alum and Hannibal star Rutina Wesley will recur through Arrow Season 4 in an important role, while Enlisted vet Parker Young will get speedy with Thea Queen this year.
The CW’s Legends of Tomorrow mega-spinoff has come into a bit sharper focus with news that Arrow and The Flash will be laying ground for its premiere, but how deep into DC lore can the series get? Can we expect time-traveling fan-favorite Booster Gold? And who in the world is Franz Drameh’s Jay Jackson?
