CW’s mounting DC TV Universe success continues on. With shows like Arrow and The Flash bringing in new heroes and villains, it was only a matter of time before the Universe expanded with their own show. The network’s latest superhero property is Legends of Tomorrow, with a brand new trailer introducing all sorts of new heroes and villains from past and present. If you’ve been following both shows religiously, then you will notice the appearance of Caity Lotz, who will sort of reprise her character from Arrow, only under a different color.
Check out the first trailer for DC’s Legends of Tomorrow below.
The CW has just released a deleted scene from last week’sThe Flash episode “Grodd Lives.” It answers the burning questions that have been on everyone’s mind, since the beginning of the season. Questions that only Ray Palmer (Brandon Routh) voiced to Cisco (Carlos Valdes), at the end of Arrow 3.19 “Broken Arrow,” when delivering Deathbolt (Doug Jones) to S.T.A.R. Labs. How do they eat? Where do they go to the bathroom?
John Diggle and Lyla Michaels cordially invite you to their wedding! The reception will be hosted by… the Suicide Squad! Held at… a secret location.
Executive Producer Marc Guggenheim delves deeper into the upcoming 17th episode of Arrow Season 3, titled “Suicidal Tendencies,” which is packed with a lot of the good stuff we’ve been waiting for. Take it from Deadshot (Michael Rowe), who exclaims “Suicide Squad rides again.” Their mission starts in their wedding limo, complete with champagne and extra guests. We see the return of Cupid (Amy Gumenick), whose obsession with the Arrow (Stephen Amell) caused her to kill for his attention. This mission comes right on the tail of Diggle and Oliver’s journey to Nanda Parbat to save Malcolm Merlyn (John Barrowman) from Ra’s al Ghul (Matt Nable), in 3.16 “The Offer.” That offer, of course was for Oliver to take over as the new Ra’s al Ghul, an offer he seriously considered. We now know that the offer is not one he can refuse, so look forward to that conflict playing out before the end of the season.
The video also promises “the Arrow vs. the Atom. An epic, epic battle.” You can watch it along with a promo video for the episode below.
So what The CW is telling me is that I have to quit my day job and become a professional television viewer, because they are once again planning on giving me an awesome Arrow spinoff. Ok, Arrow to The Flash to Atom (?) spinoff.
Deadline reports that a potential new series would team Arrow stars Brandon Routh as Ray Palmer/The Atom and Caity Lotz with The Flash stars Victor Garber as Martin Stein and Wentworth Miller as Captain Cold. Also hinted are three new DC characters not yet seen in the ever-expanding DC television superhero world. There is no title yet for the series, which is in development and is rumored to be a mid-season replacement next year.
Arrow 3.15 “Nanda Parbat” airs tonight, February 25, 2015, at 8pm and The CW has released several promo videos to heighten the anticipation.
Watch the videos here below, including two clips from the episode, along with the trailer and a behind-the-scenes featurette. One of the clips was shown during star Stephen Amell’s recent goal-fulfilling visit to Late Night With Seth Meyers, and sees the Arrow facing off against Nyssa al Ghul.
“Nanda Parbat” will also mark Brandon Routh’s debut as The Atom.
This is the last episode of Arrow until March 18, 2015, so expect some surprises tonight!
