Last night’s Arrow installment “Broken Arrow” brought plenty of bodies and bloodshed, though at least one major character departed with the suggestion that they wouldn’t return, at least on a regular basis. Now, Arrow bosses have confirmed that a major character of the series won’t return as a regular in Season 4, but may drop back in a few weeks from now.

OK, let’s state up front that the Iris material is a complete anchor on the show and that Eddie Thawne is probably the only reasonable person on The Flash when it comes to her being in the dark about Barry Allen’s identity. The show is building towards a place where Eddie is disillusioned by The Flash and ultimately starts the path that Eobard Thawne picks up a few centuries from now. The show can’t undo the mess it’s done here, so it just has to plow through the muck until that glorious, glorious day in which Iris knows Barry Allen’s secret.
Both Arrow and The Flash have already crossed over with each other enough times to make our heads spin, with plenty more to come leading into either CW series’ final episodes this season, not to mention that insane spinoff. Now, the DC dramas come together for their biggest crossover yet, as the CW stars brawl through a “Superhero Fight Club”!
We still don’t know what to make of Arrow or The Flash spinning off The Atom into his own super-team of faces both new and old, but already DC’s TV Avengers may have assembled. A new set photo teases the new team’s first meeting with Barry and Oliver, but what does it mean for either season finale?
Last week it was rumored that Warner Bros. had their eye on The LEGO Movie writing/directing duo Phil Lord and Chris Miller to help with The Flash solo film. It wasn’t clear if the studio wanted Lord and Miller to write or direct the project (or both), but it looks like at the very least, the pair are officially developing the story for The Flash — and that’s the extent of their involvement…for now.
Even as Arrow and The Flash drop spoilery teases of their upcoming finale episodes, we still have little clue what to make of the proposed spinoff teaming The Atom, Hawkgirl, Rip Hunter, Captain Cold, Caity Lotz and more. Now, a few new tidbits may have emerged indicating which new DC heroes could pop up on The Flash, and how Caity Lotz might slip back into a Canary role.
The Flash will take yet another break this week before returning with next Tuesday’s Atom-ic “All Star Team Up,” but in case that super-spoilery teaser of the final Season 1 episodes wasn’t enough, the Scarlet Speedster has hit us again with another burst. Straight from WonderCon, find out who’s behind bars (or glass), and who’s getting an unexpected hookup in the weeks ahead!
Following their massive success with the Jump Street franchise and The LEGO Movie, just about everyone wants to get into the Phil Lord and Chris Miller business. The duo have proven their value with both animated and live-action features (as well as pulling off the near-impossible by making a great comedy sequel), so it’s hardly surprising to hear that Warner Bros. is seeking the pair to join the DC Universe.
The Flash dropped some intense spoilers on its future (and past) with tonight’s “Tricksters,” but The CW drama has far more secrets in store for the remainder of its first season. The latest trailer surprisingly reveals some major Arrow Season 3 plot points, as well as enough new and returning DC stars to unravel the space-time continuum itself!
OK, well now that’s a lot more like it. The 2015 run of The Flash hasn’t been that strong, with an inability to plot over the long term and a semi-disastrous redo of the timeline last week hurting the overall quality of the program. But “Tricksters” does what the show does best: Dole out a fun villain of the week and incrementally move the overall season along without really giving away the farm. That seems like an odd thing to say given the flashbacks in tonight’s episode, but in reality, this episode told us far less than it initially appears.
