  1. Arrow’s New Showrunner Says Season 7 Has A Very Specific Theme (Date: 29 Aug 2018)
    1. According to Beth Schwartz, The CW series’ new showrunner, the former Star City Mayor will need to redeem himself in the eyes of the city he spent seven years defending as the Green Arrow. “The theme for Season 7 is redemption. As you’ll see, since last season when Oliver outed his identity, the city is a little bit mixed about how they feel about the Green Arrow,” she revealed at Comic-Con International in San Diego. “So his whole season is about redemption, and all the characters will touch on that as well.”
  2. ARROWVERSE Crossover Character Breakdown Reveals Details On The Latest Incarnation Of Lois Lane (Date: 28 Aug 2018)
    1. It sounds like The CW will be sticking fairly close to the classic interpretations of Superman's iconic love-interest. "The show is looking to cast a Caucasian woman in her early 30s as Lois Lane. Described as the daughter of US General Sam Lane, Lois is a tenacious, righteous and stubborn reporter who will go to any length to get the story and almost never fails. The breakdown reveals that she will appear in The Flash and Supergirl episodes of the crossover event, meaning that the Arrow portion won’t feature her."
  3. Arrowverse "Suit Up" Promo Reveals New Footage And THE FLASH's Comic Accurate Costume (Date: 29 Aug 2018)
    1. The CW has released a new promo for Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl, Legends of Tomorrow, and Black Lightning featuring fresh footage from each of their respective seasons premiering in the fall.
