Kevin Smith says he’s interested in writing for Arrow  (Date: 11 May 2016)

"I would love to jump in for a one or two episode arc just to bring the Onomatopoeia character to life. That would be so badass.”



No Return for Laurel says Stephen Amell  (Date: 07 May 2016)

During a sit-down with "Larry King Now," asked whether he knew the last words uttered by Lance -- Amell said that while he does know what she said, it will remain a surprise, per the wishes of Greg Berlanti. When King followed up by asking "Any chance she'll come back from the dead?" Amell responded with a simple "No."

S04 Finale Titled “Schism” May complete a “Soft Reboot” (Date: 11 May 2016)

OpEd: DC has a rare opportunity for a shared universe (Date: 12 May 2016)

This is the true magic of shared universes: Something BIG happens in Show A, so Shows B, C, and D must adapt … DC has a rare opportunity that Marvel doesn’t: They occupy the week. Mondays belong to Supergirl, Tuesdays for The Flash, Arrow has Wednesdays, and Legends of Tomorrow dominate Thursdays. That’s four days in the week for one massive story following the events of Monument Point.





Supergirl S02 Renewed & confirmed to move to CW!!! (Date: 12 May 2016)
