  1. Spoiler Room: Scoop on Arrow, Blacklist, Scandal, and more (Date: 07 April 2017)
    Is there anything you can share on the Arrow finale? —
    Oliver will have to use everything (and everyone) in his arsenal in order to take down Prometheus. “The alliances are going to be very surprising,” EP Wendy Mericle says of the finale. “You’re not going to believe who Oliver is working with to defeat Prometheus. It’s going to be really emotional. It’s going to be all about Oliver’s family, but not the family we’re thinking of right now. It’s going to end in a giant explosion, but not where we think it’s going to end, and the emotional punch is going to be bigger than the actual physical part of the bombs going off.”
    Before “Arrow” Season 5 thunders to its conclusion, Deathstroke will return to the series. On Twitter, star Stephen Amell confirmed that Manu Bennett will reprise his role as Slade Wilson. Executive producer Marc Guggenheim went on to confirm Bennett’s return as well.
  3. Manu Bennett's Deathstroke Will Return To Arrow, Despite Actor's Denials (Date: 12 April 2017)
    Bennett had tweeted that on Monday that he wasn't returning to Arrow, and then followed it up yesterday with a tweet that read, "Enough b.s about d.s!!! FACT: Deathstroke Arrow are currently filming in Vancouver IS NOT ME. I am in Auckland filming The Shannara Chronicles." While Bennett was not currently filming Arrow, it seems that he is or will be at some point this week. The "other" Deathstroke was likely a stunt performer, there to shoot some scenes for which Bennett wouldn't have removed the character's trademark helmet.
  4. Arrow: Katrina Law returns for epic Nyssa vs. Talia al Ghul showdown (Date: 11 April 2017)
    EW has learned exclusively that Katrina Law will reprise her role as Nyssa al Ghul for multiple episodes that culminate in an epic fight between Nyssa and her half-sister Talia al Ghul (Lexa Doig) in the upcoming season 5 finale.
  5. Dolph Lundgren Joins Jason Momoa in 'Aquaman' (Exclusive) (Date: 12 April 2017)

  6. Arrow Promotes Rick Gonzalez and Juliana Harkavy for Season 6 (Date: 13 April 2017)

  1. SUPERGIRL & THE FLASH Plot Descriptions Tease The Arrival Of Biomax & Barry's Trip To The Future (Date: 06 April 2017)
    The CW's entire DC TV slate is currently on their spring hiatus, but when the action resumes at the end of the month, prepare for some big-time developments. On Supergirl, Jack Spheer (a.k.a. Lena's ex-boyfriend) will make his debut and hold a press conference to debut his latest breakthrough in nano-technology, but when Kara Danvers, in an attempt to get back in Snapper Carr's good graces, begins pressing him on the matter to show off her reporter skills, all hell breaks loose. Meanwhile, in a Tom Cavanagh-directed episode of The Flash, Barry will make his long-awaited trip to 2024 where he'll attempt to discover Savitar's identity, but he runs into something unexpected when he meets the future versions of his S.T.A.R. Labs team, who have become shells of their former selves after the death of Iris. Elsewhere, back in 2017, Killer Frost begins to wreak havoc in Central City!

    It’s official. Cat Grant (aka Calista Flockhart) is returning for Supergirl‘s Season 2 two-episode finale, set to air May 15 and May 22. There’s been much speculation about when Flockhart might return. A regular in Season 1, the Ally McBeal alumna took on a lesser role as a recurring guest star for Season 2 in the wake of the show moving production from Los Angeles to Vancouver.
  3. Superman's Back! Tyler Hoechlin Is Officially Returning to Supergirl (Date: 11 April 2017)

TVLine spoke with newcomer Juliana Harkavy about whipping herself into crimefighting shape, the secret to the Canary Cry, Dinah’s dynamic with her teammates and the prospect of a showdown with her predecessor’s devious doppelganger.



  1. Kotobukiya Debuts Stunning Wonder Woman Movie Statue (Date: 07 April 2017)
    Wonder Woman is part of Kotobukiya's ArtFX line of statues, which are all in 1/6 scale. The statue features Diana in an action-ready pose, bracing for combat with her sword and shield in hand. The base suggests it will interlock with other statues, though on its own is rather boring. Still, the lush reds and rich golds and blues are stunning, and Kotobukiya always excels at sculpting hair. The statue also holds a well-crafted resemblance to Gal Gadot, who has her trademark golden lasso at her side. Wonder Woman will retail for 13,800 Yen, which translates to about $124 USD. She is shipping sometime in July of 2017.


  1. Funko Has All The Wonder Woman Exclusives You Could Want (Date: 08 April 2017)
    Funko has announced and shown off glam shots of all of their retailer exclusives for the upcoming Wonder Woman film. Wonder Woman Funko: it is not too late to sign up for the Wonder Woman themed Legion of Collectors box. Full of Wonder Woman goodness, all 100% exclusive, the order cutoff is May 1.
  2. Greg Rucka and Liam Sharp To Leave Wonder Woman After June's #25 (Date: 12 April 2017)
    Both writer Greg Rucka and artist Liam Sharp announced today on social media that they will leave DC's twice-monthly Wonder Woman title after the oversized Wonder Woman #25 ships on June 28. Rucka took to his Tumblr to tell fans that he would be leaving the title due to the strain of the twice-monthly schedule. Identifying it as his last issue on the title "for the time being," Rucka advised fans against assuming the worst and wrote, "I just can’t maintain the pace on the title while also fulfilling my commitments to my other collaborators. It is, genuinely, as simple as that." Shortly thereafter, Sharp took to Facebook to confirm that he, too, would be leaving the title -- but cryptically teasing that he wouldn't be going too far.
  3. 'DC Super Hero Girls' Writer to Take on 'Wonder Woman' Comic This Summer (Exclusive) (Date: 13 April 2017)
    Shea Fontana will take over the title in July, following a critically acclaimed run by writer Greg Rucka. Fontana has signed on to write five issues of the twice-monthly series for the heroine, beginning with July's No. 26, with a storyline that will introduce a new villain into the DC Universe. The move comes fresh off the success of her DC Super Hero Girls work. The artist for Fontana's first two issues will be Mirka Andolfo, whose work has previously appeared in the DC Comics: Bombshells series. Fontana and Andolfo's first issue of Wonder Woman, No. 26, will be released in comic stores and digitally July 12, with No. 27 to be released July 26.
