Even as Arrow once again revoked access to Deathstroke, fans kept hope that recent references to Batman and Wonder Woman might signal greater leniency with the major DCEU characters.

As if we needed further reason to contemplate Jamie Lee Curtis’ body of work today, True Lies is making its own return. The fan-favorite James Cameron-Arnold Schwarzenegger vehicle will get the TV treatment with Arrow boss Marc Guggenheim, and Cameron eyed to produce.

Arrow Season 5’s finale return to “Lian Yu” definitively caught up with the five-year flashbacks begun by the pilot, but left its own major gap to fill.
