  1. Stephen Amell Reveals a Painful 'Arrow' First (Date: 17 July 2018)
    1. Arrow's seventh season may show a new normal for Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell), but it sounds like new things are happening behind-the-scenes as well. In a recent tweet, Amell revealed that, after over six seasons of being on the air, he has now been "kicked in the nuts" while filming an Arrow scene. You can check out the tweet below.
    2. @StephenAmell
      140 episodes, countless stunt sequences... and I managed to avoid getting kicked in the nuts... UNTIL TODAY!!!
      10:03 PM - Jul 17, 2018

  2. Batwoman series from Greg Berlanti in development at The CW (Date: 17 July 2018)
    1. It turns out Greg Berlanti’s plans for Batwoman extend far beyond the annual Arrowverse crossover. The CW is developing a script for a Batwoman series for 2019, EW has learned. While there’s no casting news as of yet, the character will make her debut in this year’s DC crossover event, as Arrow star Stephen Amell announced in May. EW has also learned that the forthcoming crossover will include Arrow, The Flash, and Supergirl — but not DC’s Legends of Tomorrow. The series, which has only reached a script-development deal at this point, will be written by Caroline Dries, who is also executive producing alongside Berlanti, Sarah Schechter, and Geoff Johns (under his new Mad Ghost Production banner). The annual DC crossover event is slated to air in December.



  1. 'The Flash' Star Danielle Panabaker to Make Her Directorial Debut in Season 5! (Exclusive) (Date: 16 July 2018)
    1. In addition to returning as S.T.A.R. Labs scientist Caitlin Snow in The CW series' fifth season, actress Danielle Panabaker will be stepping behind the camera to direct an upcoming episode. "I am so humbled by this opportunity to utilize everything that I have learned as a storyteller to bring an episode of The Flash to life," she said. "I couldn’t be more thrilled to have the chance to work alongside our extremely talented (and vast) team that works so hard to make each and every episode of the show. I wouldn’t be here without the support of my Flash family, and I am so thankful for this opportunity to continue to grow and challenge myself as an artist.
  2. Smallville alum Sam Witwer joins Supergirl season 4 as Agent Liberty (Date: 17 July 2018)
    1. Supergirl has lured in yet another Smallville vet! Sam Witwer, who starred on Smallville season 8 as Doomsday, has joined the CW superhero drama’s upcoming fourth season in the series regular role of DC Comics character Agent Liberty. In the show’s interpretation on the character, Agent Liberty is the ruthless and terrifying founder and figurehead of Children of Liberty, a hate group that supports a human-first world order. According to a description from the show’s producers, he’s “a brilliant orator in the guise of a family man” and the scariest thing about him is how easily he can convince people that he’s right. Given that Supergirl (Melissa Benoist) and the DEO tend to be pro-alien integration, it’s definitely fair to assume they won’t get along with Agent Liberty and his Children of Liberty.
  3. DC Universe Announces Fourth Live-Action Series: Stargirl (Date: 19 July 2018)
  4. The release date for DC Universe is still set for “fall 2018,” but we have more information about the streaming service. Stargirl joins the previously announced Titans, Doom Patrol and Swamp Thing live-action dramas. Other original content already announced includes an animated adult-aimed Harley Quinn series and a new season of the fan-favorite Young Justice cartoon, sub-titled Outsiders. Earlier this morning the pricing options for DC Universe were released, with annual subscriptions to the service running $74.99 and $7.99 for a monthly fee.
  6. 'The Flash' Reveals First Two Episode Titles of Season 5 (Date: 18 July 2018)
    1. A new report reveals the first two episode titles from the latest season of The Flash. The season five premiere will reportedly be titled "Nora", while the second episode of the season will be titled "Blocked".
