Today The CW released another new trailer for DC's Legends of Tomorrow, the upcoming spin-off of Arrow and The Flash.
While the TCA's are taking place this week (Today, The CW was presenting) we've received some awesome news. The grave to the recently canceled NBC series Constantine is no longer fresh, but today we've learned that Matt Ryan will reprise his role as John Constantine! Ryan will guest star in one episode of the fourth season of Arrow. Its something that's been in the works for quite some time, leading back to while Constantine's future was still in the air and Arrow star Stephen Amell went to Twitter to make an effort to save the series.
In the closing minutes of Season Three of Arrow, we saw Oliver and Felicity leaving Starling City. Oliver had given up the mantle of The Arrow and was leaving to be with Felicity. When Season Four starts, it looks like he'll be coming back with a fresh look. Stephen Amell took to Facebook and Twitter to reveal the new look minutes before the panel started at SDCC, he also tagged it "GreenArrow."
In the closing hours of Day Three of SDCC, Warner Bros and DC Entertainment took over Hall H. We were promised panels from the staff and cast of The Flash, Arrow, Legends of Tomorrow, and Gotham. Not much was expected in the way of new footage as Arrow is about to begin production on Season 4 (Stephen Amell just wrapped his role as Casey Jones in the upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles sequel) and The Flash is only a week into production on Season 2. But we did get some exciting news about casting! We learned that Patty Spivot will join the show played by Shantel VanSanten and after being teased in the finale of The Flash, Jay Garrick debuts played by Teddy Sears!
We've been learning bits and pieces about the proposed Arrow/The Flash spin-off series for months now. We've been given small nuggets as to which characters we'll be seeing but the matter of the plot was left open ended...until now:
After news broke of the casting of Hawkgirl in the upcoming Arrow/The Flash Spin-Off series, we also found out that another new character had been cast as well. Doctor Who alum Arthur Darvill has been cast as Rip Hunter. Who is Rip Hunter? Well, he's a time traveler who's looking to get back to his original timeline. He's the character that was described as "The Traveler" when we heard previously about three new characters we hadn't yet seen on live action television.
Here are some of the highlights from the Arrow and The Flash panels from PaleyFest 2015
Last month Deadline reported that The CW had ordered a new series that would spin-off from both Arrow and The Flash and would incorporate at least two main characters that spawned from each series. Brandon Routh, who was introduced during the current season of Arrow as Ray Palmer aka The Atom. Victor Garber who made his debut as Doctor Martin Stein otherwise known as half of Firestorm on The Flash (No word yet if the other half, Robbie Amell, would be starring as well).
In recent weeks the casting for the upcoming CBS superhero series Supergirl has ramped up dramatically. This past week the pilot began production so it was only a matter of time before we caught our first glimpse of Melissa Benoist in the Supergirl costume. Today is that day!
It's something the writers and the producers over at The Flash have been hinting at for some time now. Our first "easter egg" was thrown in our faces right away in the pilot episode when Barry and Wells pass by a destroyed cage with the name plate reading "Grodd." We next get a little history in a flashback during the episode "Plastique" where we see that five years ago Grodd was a test subject for experiments in the development of mental abilities for interrogation with General Wade Eiling (Clancy Brown) overseeing the work. Eiling wants to take Grodd away from Wells, who refuses, telling Grodd he has other plans for him. More recently in the episode "Crazy for You" we got to see Gorilla Grodd in action as two maintenance workers are show underground in the Central City sewer system which has the name Grodd etched into its walls. They are then brutally attacked by a large ape from the shadows.
Typically known for following the superhero exploits of Superman, James 'Jimmy' Olsen, has just been cast to appear in CBS' upcoming series Supergirl starring Melissa Benoist as Kara Zor-El aka Supergirl . Mehcad Brooks (True Blood, Necessary Roughness, Desperate Housewives) has signed on to portray the sometimes bumbling yet ever lovable photojournalist.
Since CBS announced they were going into the Superhero TV Show business and chose 'Supergirl' as its hero of choice, we had been waiting to see who would be cast as Kara Zor-El they estranged cousin of Superman. Today it was announced that Melissa Benoist (Glee, Whiplash)
Back in September we got the news that a Supergirl show was given a full series order from CBS and that the man behind Arrow and The Flash, Greg Berlanti and Chuck and No Ordinary Family producer Ali Adler would be running things. The premise is rumored to focus on Superman's cousin, Kara Zor-El, as she begins to use her powers that she'd been hiding for years. Now The Wrap is reporting that casting has begun and that Claire Holt best known as Rebekah on The Vampire Diaries and The Originals is up for the title role.
Cable network TNT is working on a deal to produce a pilot based on the teenage super team, Teen Titans from DC that would be called 'Titans.' Akiva Goldsman (Fringe, A Beautiful Mind, I Am Legend) is writer/executive producer on the project with Warner Horizon Television producing. This would add the increasing large number of DC Comics television adaptations that are already in production. Arrow, The Flash, Gotham, and Constantine will be airing soon, along with the rumored Supergirl pilot that's being shopped around.
Exciting news for Flash Fans and Robbie Amell fans alike. It has just been announced that actor Robbie Amell, who formerly starred in The CW's recently canceled series The Tomorrow People, has been cast as one half of the DC Comics Character Firestorm aka Ronnie Raymond!
