Another WWE Superstar is coming to the Arrowverse

FB_IMG_1511809321634

Could the scarlet speedster become the victim of a jackhammer? This is a question we will get the answer to because the WWE’s own superhero, Goldberg will be appearing on two upcoming episodes of CW’s The Flash.

The former WWE Universal Champion confirmed this himself via his Twitter.

Goldberg is not the first WWE Superstar to grace the ARROWVERSE. After his Summer Slam encounter with Arrow’s Stephen Smell, Cody Rhodes appeared on the show as the character Stardust (a nod to his WWE persona at the time).

Does this mean that Goldberg will potentially one of the new Metahumans created by the dark matter that struck the bus as part of a grand scheme by The Thinker? Will he be an adversary for Team Flash or Will he be a new barista at Jitters?

Guess we all just have to wait and see.

Crisis On Earth-X! The Trailer For The CW DC Crossover Arrives!

Since the first CW superhero crossover, each one has gotten better and better. Last year’s Dominators storyline was solid, but the trailer for this year’s looks incredible!

Already slated to have upwards of 20 characters on-screen at a time, the 2-night, 4 show event will be covering the famed Barry-Iris wedding, one of the most famous in all of comic book history. The core story for this year revolves around an attack from the 53rd universe in the known DC world, Earth-X. Iris and Barry’s wedding is interrupted by an assault from Nazi’s and anti-heroes – including evil versions of Arrow, Flash and Supergirl, and it will take the full onslaught of CW’s full catalog, plus newcomer, The Ray, to save the day.

Supergirl kicks everything off on Monday, November 27th at it’s normal time slot, followed by a special Monday edition of Arrow. Flash and Legends will follow on Tuesday at their normal times, and we can’t wait!

 

Arrow’s Season 5 Sizzle Reel Further Proves Jay Was Right!

We talked about how right Jay was about the return of Deathstroke and how it was going to happen, and the season 5 sizzle reel for Arrow proves it. There’s a ton of new action in the featurette, including more Black Siren, a showdown between the al-Ghul sisters and Manu Bennett, back as Slade Wilson! We’ll keep bringing you more from C2E2 all weekend!

Slade Wilson is coming back to Arrow

FB_IMG_1491864425842

Not just Slade Wilson, but more specifically Manu Bennett? Could this be a setup to a potentially action packed season finale of Arrow?

Stephen Amell who portrays Oliver Queen, tweeted a pic featuring the Infamous Deathstroke mask with the caption “Desperate times call for desperate measures. Welcome back @manubennett”. Could this mean that Oliver Queen will go to the A.R.G.U.S. maximum security prison on Lian Yu and recruit Slade Wilson (played by Bennett) to help him deal with the homicidal Adrian Chase/Simon Morrison/Promethius?

This season has been loaded with action and I for one would love to see Slade both suited and mirakuru’ed up.

Supergirl EP gives breakdown as how Arrowverse heroes will handle Kryptonian

Denizens of the CW network’s Arrowverse — the fictional universe that encompasses the CW television shows “Arrow,” “The Flash,” “Legends of Tomorrow” and now “Supergirl” — have seen a lot in their time, but nothing quite like Kara Zor-El, Supergirl. The network is planning a massive crossover event for this fall, though, so some viewers are naturally curious about how the only bonafide alien in the crew is going to be received.

 

According to a report from Entertainment Weekly, Supergirl — the orphan Kryptonian played by Melissa Benoist — is greeted with a mix of intrigue and uncertainty by her peers. And then she starts flying around.

“Some people, like Barry [Grant Gustin], already know her, so Barry’s completely cool with her,” said “Supergirl” executive producer Andrew Kreisberg. “Some people are instantly charmed by her; I think Sara’s [Caity Lotz] got a little crush on her. Diggle [David Ramsey], as always, just when he thinks he’s seen it all, there’s a moment in it where somebody says, ‘This is Supergirl,’ and they say, ‘What’s so super about her?’ and she just lifts off the ground. Dig’s like, ‘I’m convinced.’”

Despite “Supergirl” only recently making the jump from CBS to the CW, the character is already a known quantity to some in the Arrowverse. Last year Grant Gustin, who plays the lead speedster “The Flash,” guest starred on an episode of “Supergirl.” It was Supergirl’s induction into the CW’s Arrowverse.

Details surrounding the crossover remain scarce, although it is known that the villains of the event will be the Dominators. The crossover is expected to air in December.

Can Arrow Get Back On Track?

arrow2

We are less than a week away from the return of the Emerald Archer to television. Many people are realistically not that excited about the upcoming 5th season and its some what understandable.

Sure the 1st season had to work to grab and keep viewers but it did enough to make them want to watch season 2. Then the full on conflict between “The Arrow” and “Deathstroke” was built up so well until what many felt was a less than climatic final fight between the two. Season three almost lost EVERYONE with the full on story of the League of Assassins but hey this Super Villain enjoyed the story of Nyssa Al’Ghul. Season Fours story of magic was so underwhelming but the arrival of Matt Ryan as Constantine brought in a little bit of hope only to once again deal out another non climatic battle. This time with the fully dubbed “Green Arrow” taking on Damien Dahrk (even though Neal McDonough was AMAZING). Oh yeah lets not forget the death of Laurel Lance/Black Canary which many people took to social media to exclaim their COMPLETE AND UTTER DISDAIN.

But last come to present day where we are at the cusp of a brand new season. With a new season once again there are a lot of changes. Thea and Diggle have left the team (but they are for sure coming back) Oliver (Stephen Amell) is recruiting a new team in Wild dog, Artemis, Mr. Terrific and Ragman. But what should make straying fans and those losing hope feel a bit of solace is that this time the bad guy is just a REGULAR BAD GUY. There’s no super powers, no crew of ninja assassins, no magic just a straight up badass in Tobias Church (Chad L. Coleman) and I for one am SUPER EXCITED.

Oh yeah i forgot to mention this is the last year for the Oliver Queen flashbacks.

But you need to know if nothing else can get you a little bit fired up for this season which premieres Wednesday October 5th on the CW (cheap plug) this two-minute promo posted by Stephen Amell himself should do it.
