As we prepare for the Arrow Season 4 panel at Comic-Con 2015, we’ve already been treated to a delightful surprise: Oliver has a brand new costume for the upcoming fourth season, giving our Starling City hero a fierce and highly-tactical new look as he prepares to re-enter the vigilante fray.

We’ve been eagerly awaiting news of Arrow’s Season 4 casting, particularly with regards to a certain Darhk-sided baddie. With CW hitting Comic-Con this week, it was only a matter of time before the beans were spilled, and it looks like they’re some good ones. Arrow has secured Neal McDonough to play the role of Starling City villain Damien Darhk in Season 4.
The CW’s Legends of Tomorrow pulled quite a bit of focus from Arrow and The Flash’s shared universe, so much so that we’d nearly forgotten the animated Vixen series on CW Seed. Now, the network has announced who will voice the iconic animal-wielding hero, as well as what Arrow and Flash stars will drop in on Vixen for some shared continuity.
The CW’s epic Legends of Tomorrow hasn’t even gone before cameras yet, though the initial teaser presentation certainly gave us a taste of the out-there action. Now, a new piece of concept art puts Firestorm at the center of a huge battle, while new showrunner Phil Klemmer talks the spinoff’s complicated relationship with time travel.
Now that Star Trek Beyond has officially gotten its warp core up and running, Star Trek’s franchise future has fans wondering more than ever if a return (or extension) to TV lies in store. Now, a new report lays out some of the complicated rights issues keeping Starfleet affixed to cinemas for the moment, though not without some hope for the upcoming 50th anniversary.
Unlike its CW predecessor, The Flash ended its season on a significantly “Fast Enough” cliffhanger, an even more daunting prospect given the sci-fi seriousness of our beloved Scarlet Speedster. Season 2 has yet to run before cameras, but might its premiere title offer a surprising clue into “The Man Who Saved Central City”?
Arrow and Flash fans have quite a bit to look forward to in the coming weeks and Comic-Con, hopefully enough to tide a bit of bad news. Both CW superheroes have set their returns for Seasons 2 and 4 this October, along with other network series the likes of Supernatural, Jane the Virgin and more.
The continued expansion of The CW’s DC universe already stretched Arrow Season 3 a bit thinner by way of The Flash, so it stands to reason that Legends of Tomorrow might require some additional firepower. Enter the new Legends showrunner, already familiar to fans of The CW’s dearly-departed Tomorrow People.
Last week brought news that both Arrow Season 3 and The Flash would speed onto DVD and Blu-ray in advance of their fall premieres, but even those attending the massive Superhero Saturday at Comic-Con 2015 needn’t wait for new material. Check out the full gag reel from Arrow Season 3's Blu-ray release, while you can!
Emboldened by their superhero success, The CW’s Legends of Tomorrow order made a surprising addition to both Arrow and The Flash, and the mad scientists of the network may push their experiment even further. Could Hawkgirl soon soar into her own series as well, after the Legends of Tomorrow arrive in 2016?
