It's been a day for DC TV to be sure, but nothing quite gets geek blood flowing like a new look at 'Arrow' season 3! Check out "The Calm" with our first new photos from the October 8 season premiere, plus a brand-spankin' new teaser that ships some major "Ollicity" movement, and reveals a major character's violent new path!
We've always adored 'Arrow''s effort at crowd-pleasing casting, and it seems CW spinoff 'The Flash' has inherited the gift. Following 'Prison Break' alum Wentworth Miller's casting as Captain Cold, onscreen brother Dominic Purcell will also menace 'The Flash' as DC villain Heat Wave, reuniting the two stars.
Just when you thought 'Arrow' season 3 had only a few more castings in its tank before the October premiere, The CW's DC-adapted drama adds even more familiar faces to fan-friendly roles. Latest to enter the fray are 'Supernatural' alum Amy Gumenick in the loving role of DC villain Cupid, and 'Glee' star Nolan Funk as a face from Felicity's past.
'Arrow' season 3 fans have been eagerly anticipating a certain major DC casting, to the point we hadn't noticed one of its existing roles in jeopardy. To wit, where previously 'Sin City' star Devon Aoki had been cast in the role of DC superhero Katana, we've now learned that 'The Wolverine' sword-slinger Rila Fukushima will replace Aoki in the role when 'Arrow' season 3 debuts this fall.
Yesterday we learned that the CW's 'Arrow' had continued expanded its roster of DC rogues, and its spinoff series 'The Flash' certainly isn't trailing behind. Not only has the speedy new superhero drama added a 'Star-Crossed' alum as metallic villain Girder, but 'Sleepy Hollow' star (and former Lex Luthor!) Clancy Brown will play DC's General Wade Eiling.
Fans of The CW's 'Arrow' have been on pins and...well, arrows in waiting for the casting announcement of Ra's al Ghul, but the League of Assassins head won't be the last DC villain to cross paths with Oliver Queen this year. The latest to enter the fray is 'Tron: Legacy' star Matt Ward as DC archer Komodo, while we've also learned that Felicity backstory episode "Oracle" may not have as significant a title as we'd hoped.
We're still admittedly on the fence about 'Arrow''s upcoming 'The Flash' spinoff, even with favorable reactions from Comic-Con 2014, but we have to give it to the DC drama for swinging to the fences. In addition to a plethora of DC villains already lined up, 'The Flash''s first season has added 'Arrow' baddie Robert Knepper to reprise his role as The Clock King, along with yet another DC metahuman, and a stylish new trailer to wrap it all up in.
The CW's 'Arrow' made some season 3 waves with the news that dastardly DC villain Ra's al Ghul would show his face as our new big bad, but the hit superhero drama still has a few new characters to add before we learn what actor heads the League of Assassins. In the meantime, 'Medium''s David Cubitt has joined 'Arrow' season 3 in the role of DC's Manhunter, alongside 'NYPD Blue' alum Charlotte Ross as Felicity's mother.
This past weekend saw The CW's 'Arrow' dropping plenty of season 3 intel, between its Ballroom 20 panel, fresh new trailer and a surprise villain announcement, but the emerald archer still has a few arrows left in his quiver. Joining the extensive roster of DC figures in season 3 is 'Emily Owens' and 'Power' star J.R. Ramirez, playing the 'Arrow' incarnation of Ted Grant, also known as DC superhero Wildcat!
Just a couple of nights ago we got a brand-new trailer for 'Arrow' season 3 -- but you didn't think that's all we'd be seeing of the latest installment during Comic-Con 2014 weekend, did you? Hot on the heels of the first preview comes another season 3 trailer, and this one ends with the introduction of a familiar DC comics foe.
