  1. How Arrow Needs To Be More Like The Comics In Season 6, According To Stephen Amell (Date: 27 June 2017)
    1. During his panel at the Portland Heroes & Villains Fan Fest this past weekend, the actor mentioned that he's talked with the show's producers about having Oliver Queen start to resemble his comic book counterpart more closely this upcoming season and beyond. Amell said, “I've said that it's very, very important that if Oliver doesn't take away lessons from Season 5 and doesn't keep doing the things that have led to this catastrophic event, the character stops being interesting to me. So I hope that part of that, in Season 6 and if we have seasons beyond that, I hope that part of that is we get back to a lot of the tenets that people recognize from the comics. And that of course is humor and a socially conscious, slightly liberal superhero.”
  2. The Big Arrow Relationship That Will Change In Season 6 (Date: 27 June 2017)
    1. CinemaBlend's own Adam Holmes was in attendance at a recent panel with Stephen Amell, who had this to say about Oliver and William in Season 6: “I'm excited that not only are they going to learn about having the father/son relationship, I think we're going to explore that in Season 6, but [William] also knows that Oliver is the Green Arrow. So there's a lot of interesting layers and dynamics. I'm just excited to have to teach him a lesson. As a father, Oliver will definitely try to be better than what he's been as a person... So hopefully he can be a good example for William.”
  3. Matt's Inside Line: Scoop on The Flash, Once, Lucifer, The Strain, Blindspot, Orphan Black, This Is Us and More! (Date: 29 June 2017)
    1. Any news on Arrow Season 6 in general? —It can be teased that the next, yet-to-be-cast Big Bad has been on many a fan’s wish list.



  1. Every DC Universe Original Movie To Be Collected In A Massive Box Set (Date: 28 June 2017)
    1. Warner Bros. Animation is celebrating the tenth anniversary of its direct-to-video films featuring DC Comics’ heroes with a massive 30-film collection. The set will collect every movie from the past decade, from Superman: Doomsday, the very first film in the series, to the as yet unreleased Batman and Harley Quinn. The collection will also feature the animation studios’ five “DC Showcase” animated shorts – The Spectre, Green Arrow, Jonah Hex, Catwoman and Superman/Shazam: The Return of Black Adam, along with a host of unannounced special features. All in all, the collection will be comprised of 32 separate Blu-ray discs. The Blu-ray box set will arrive in stores on November 7, and the set will be available for Digital Download on August 15. Pricing has not been announced for either version.
  2. Matt's Inside Line: Scoop on The Flash, Once, Lucifer, The Strain, Blindspot, Orphan Black, This Is Us and More! (Date 29 June 2017)
    1. Any scoop on how The Flash‘s Iris will be grieving Barry after sacrificing himself to the Speed Force? — With the action picking up six months later, it’s unclear if time heals all wounds. “We still don’t have Barry out of the Speed Force,” Candice Patton told us at Wednesday’s Saturn Awards. “Iris is really struggling to deal with that, and she does it in her own way.” And while there’s buzz that Iris will have assumed a larger role within Team Flash, Patton was mum on what if anything Barry’s fiancée might be doing to try to get her love back: “That’s a very interesting question that I can’t really answer!”
  3. The winners of the 43rd Annual Saturn Awards (Date 28 June 2017)
    1. Best Actress on Television: Melissa Benoist (Supergirl); Best Supporting Actress on Television: Candice Patton (The Flash); Best Superhero Adaptation TV Series: Supergirl
