  1. Arrow villain Prometheus to appear in four-way crossover (Date: 29 Sept 2017)
  2. EW has confirmed that the Arrow villain will appear in the four-way crossover between Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl, and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, but he’s the Prometheus from Earth-X, otherwise known as Prometheus-X. We’ll also see Dark Arrow, Dark Flash, and Overgirl. Alas, there are no plans for Josh Segarra to return as Prometheus, which raises the question: Who is under that mask? 


  1. ArrowverseCrossover Set Photo Appears to Show A Double Wedding (Date: 11 Oct 2017) 
  2. We knew Barry Allen and Iris West would tie the knot in this year’s huge Arrowversecrossover, but a set photo suggests pair of Arrow character may get hitched at the same time. The set photo has Grant Gustin and Candice Patton dressed to the nines on their big day, but the surprisingly part is that Stephen Amell and Emily Bett Rickards are right alongside them, with Amell’s Oliver Queen apparently placing a ring on the finger of Felicity’s finger.  


  1. Arrow Introduces DC Comics’ Onyx in Season 6 (Date: 06 month year)
  2. The third episode of Arrow‘s sixth season is set to bring in another character from DC Comics: Onyx. A member of the League of Assassins, Onyx decides to give up taking lives to become a vigilante — she’s typically an ally of Batman in the comics. The official synopsis of the episode reveals that Onyx will be played by Chastity Dotson (Pitch, Veronica Mars). Her character will lead a rogue black-ops team to break into Kord Industries. It’s likely that she’ll run into Oliver Queen and Team Arrow during her mission to retrieving a deadly item.


  1. Arrow’s Season 6 Sizzle Reel Teases Deathstroke’sEye Injury (Date: 10 Oct 2017) 
  2. A new sizzle reel for the sixth season of the CW’s Arrow teases a major moment for the Wilson family. The video introduces Arrow fans to Liam Hall, who will play Joe Wilson, the son of Slade Wilson, otherwise known as the international assassin Deathstroke. It looks like Joe will be on the hunt for revenge, specifically against the man who took his father’s eye – Oliver Queen, the Green Arrow himself.


  1. Arrow’s EP On Prometheus’ Victim, Arsenal’s Return & Vigilante’s True Identity (Date: 12 Oct 2017)
  2. CBR spoke with showrunner Wendy Mericle about what she and the rest of her crew have in store for Team Arrow in Season 6. While she wouldn’t offer so much as a clue regarding which character met their final fate, Mericle was more than happy to discuss the possibility of seeing Black Siren achieve some level of redemption this season, and hoe excited she is for Roy Harper to return n to Star City. And, she promises, fans can expect a definite answer to a question that’s been haunting Oliver and company when the show reveals Vigilante’s secret identity once and for all.



  1. Victor Garber to Leave DC’s Legends of Tomorrow (Date: 11 Oct 2017)
  2. Garber – who plays Martin Stein, one half of Firestorm – will be exiting DC’s Legends of Tomorrow during the current season. His departure has been rumored for some months now, and seemed imminent once it was revealed in September that he’d be returning to Broadway in Hello, Dolly! The report states that Garber’s exit has been planned meticulously to give Stein a fitting send-off. It’s also said he’ll remain a series regular throughout the third season, which premiered last night, though he’s not likely to return for episodes beyond those he’s already filmed. This means Jaxwill need to find another half to remain as the hero Firestorm. 


  1. Matt Ryan to Reprise 'Constantine' Role for 2-Part 'Legends of Tomorrow' Arc (Date: 09 Oct 2017)
  2. Matt Ryan will reprise his role of demon hunter John Constantine for a two-episode arc on Legends of Tomorrow this season. He will appear in episodes nine and 10 of Legends of Tomorrow season three, which will take place chronologically after his appearance on Arrow and involve a confrontation with the Big Bad. According to executive producer Phil Klemmer, "We knew that an alienated, chain-smoking, bisexual, world-weary demonologist would feel right at home among our Legends."   


  1. Constantine Lights Up With First Look At Animated Series(Date: 08 Oct 2017)
  2. John Constantine smokes a cigarette or two, and uses some mild profanity, in the action-filled first look at his upcoming animated series from CW Seed. Debuted at New York Comic Con, the preview shows Matt Ryan, star of NBC’s live-action Constantine, return to his role as DC Comics’ fan-favorite magician and con man. Constantine certainly appears to be in classic form, as in the sneak peek he’s invited several demons to an unconsecrated church, under false pretenses, naturally, where they’re to be feasted upon by something else.  


  1. Legends of Tomorrow: The Dominators Return – With A Twist (Date: 13 Oct 2017)
  2. This Halloween, The CW’s ragtag band of time-traveling outcasts will encounter a familiar extraterrestrial race when The Dominators return. According to the synopsis for episode four, aptly titled “Phone Home,” the Legends are still dealing with the ramifications of damaging the timeline last season. Now, with Ray’s fate hanging in the balance, the team is forced to travel back in time where they discover that a young Dr. Palmer has an even younger Dominator in his possession, which naturally piques the interest of not only the U.S. Government, but the baby alien’s protective mother. 


  1. Legends of Tomorrow Sizzle Reel Unleashes Grodd(and Vampires) (Date: 09 Oct 2017) 
  2. A new sizzle reel for the upcoming third season of DC’s Legends of Tomorrow has been released. The video kicks off right where the second season of Legends left off, with the team having returned to the present day only to find that the world has been overrun with dinosaurs. From there, the reel gets to teasing all the big moments set to debut in season three. The sizzle reel also teases some upcoming episode plots, like a trip to the circus and… Vietnam, where Gorilla Groddmakes an appearance. Then there’s the vampires, which look to play a rather large role in the show’s third season. The video’s end teases the return of Damian Darhk (Neal McDonough).  


  1. The Flash: Barry & Iris Undergo Therapy in Upbeat Season 4 Trailer (Date: 11 Oct 2017)
  2. The footage shows that working together on Team Flash will require Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) and Iris West (Candice Patton) to attend couples therapy, though the scene is definitely more humorous than one might first expect. The trailer also shows Danny Trejo as Breacherand Neil Sandilands as The Thinker/Clifford DeVoe. 


  1. The Flash Showrunner Teases Barry Allen’s Season 4 Rebirth (Date: 10 Oct 2017)
  2. Showrunner Todd Helbing spoke with CBR about what, exactly, Barry’s rebirth will entail. We also dug into Caitlin Snow’s continuing identity crisis, the series’ take on classic DC comics hero the Elongated Man, and the unique threat the Thinker brings to Central City.


  1. The Flash boss teases lighter season 4 (Date: 03 Oct 2017)
  2. EW's interview with executive producer Andrew Kreisberg. Discusses Barry and Iris's relationship, Barry's rebirth, The Thinker's motivations, Caitlin Snow's journey, plans for Wells, and Cisco and Gypsy.

Reply to news article about Victor Garber leaving: 

Consultant BlackAdam @Starsaber_22 2  Oct 11 Yeah, I was worried they'd be killing him off with the whole "I want to be around for my grandchild" stuff last night. 

The Starling Tribune @StarlingTribune  Oct 11 I think they'll figure out a way for Jax to be Firestorm alone. 

Consultant BlackAdam @Starsaber_222  Oct 11 Or a new backseat brain for Firestorm like the way Jax came in as the new body for Firestorm to replace Ronnie. Maybe even Stein's daughter? 

The Starling Tribune @StarlingTribune  Oct 11 Replying to @Starsaber_222 Lily's going to be a mom, so I doubt she'll join. Unless they go 20+ yrs in future & recruit her. Time travel!
