We’re still catching up from all of the news that broke last week at San Diego Comic Con including some of the amazing trailers for upcoming television series! Check them out below!
In the shocking season six finale of Arrow, Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) not only reveals himself to Star City as The Green Arrow, but he’s also arrested and sent to prison. Now that Oliver’s behind bars, he will come face to face with many of his former enemies, including Ben Turner/Bronze Tiger (Michael Jai White), Derek Sampson (Cody Runnels) and Danny “Brick” Brickwell (Vinnie Jones). With all three held in Slabside, Oliver will be forced to confront these and other villains he locked up while wearing the hood.
In addition, Team Arrow will come up against The Longbow Hunters, a legendary group of assassins recruited by Ricardo Diaz (Kirk Acevedo) to enact his revenge on Oliver and the team after they took down his burgeoning criminal empire in season six. A trio of villains more lethal than any the team has faced, The Longbow Hunters include Red Dart (Holly Elissa – Whistler), a ruthless and precise killer; Kodiak (Michael Jonsson – Van Helsing), a beast of a man with brute force; and Silencer (Miranda Edwards – The Magicians, Orphan Black), a master of stealth. Arrow returns for its seventh season on October 15 in its new Monday 8/7c time period on The CW
DC’S LEGENDS OF TOMORROW
The carefree time travelers of DC’s Legends of Tomorrow will welcome two new faces as they set out to hunt temporal Fugitives in the show’s fourth season (Mondays 9/8c The CW this fall).
Ramona Young (Blockers, Santa Clarita Diet) joins the cast in the series regular role of Alaska Yu. A typical twentysomething easily swept up by romantic notions and fantasy novels, she’s something of an expert in the world of the magical creatures that the Legends encounter in season four. In the company of the Legends, she soon learns to get her head out of the clouds to become a kickass superhero.
Tom Wilson (The Informant, Back to the Future, The Mayor) will recur as Nate’s (Nick Zano) father, Hank Heywood. With a lifetime in the military and Dept. of Defense, Hank is part of a long line of Heywoods to serve the country. Charming and charismatic, he’s left big shoes for Nate to fill — and it doesn’t help that Nate can’t tell him he’s secretly a Legend!
These new characters join the previously announced John Constantine (Matt Ryan), Ava Sharpe (Jes Macallan) and Nora Darhk (Courtney Ford), who will all appear in season four.
After outthinking The Thinker, you’d hope that Barry Allen aka The Flash (Grant Gustin) might have some down time to contemplate his future with his new wife, Iris (Candice Patton). But with their speedster daughter from the future, Nora (new series regular Jessica Parker Kennedy), already grown and a part of their lives, they’ve now got to face Central City’s newest menace — the DC Super-Villain Cicada! Season five pits Team Flash against yet another formidable adversary, the show’s second non-speedster Big Bad.
Chris Klein (Election, Oz, American Pie) has signed on as series regular to play next season’s scourge of Central City, Cicada. A grizzled, blue-collar everyman whose family has been torn apart by metahumans, Cicada now seeks to exterminate the epidemic — one metahuman at a time. The Flash returns for season five on Tuesday, October 9, at 8/7c on The CW.
This Season 13 Highlight Reel features Motörhead’s “God Was Never On Your Side”
Archie Andrews’ legal woes may have just gotten a little more challenging today when the producers of Riverdale announced that Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild Award nominee Penelope Ann Miller (The Artist, Carlito’s Way) will play the character of the district attorney, Ms. Wright. At the end of season two, Archie Andrews was framed by Hiram Lodge for the murder of a Shadow Lake resident named Cassidy. The savvy, eloquent Ms. Wright is the prosecuting attorney in charge of handling Archie’s case. With a conviction in mind, she will weave together disparate moments of Archie’s young life to portray him as a dangerous, violent sociopath who is capable of committing a heinous crime. His freedom will hang in the balance when the series returns to The CW for its third season on October 10 (Wednesdays 8/7c).
ROSWELL, NEW MEXICO
With the reign of Reign ended in last season’s finale, cast and producers of The CW/Warner Bros. Television’s hit drama Supergirl took the stage at the show’s Comic-Con 2018 panel session to reveal that the DC Super Hero series will welcome three new cast members for the upcoming 2018–19 season — including TV’s first transgender superhero. Transgender activist Nicole Maines (Royal Pains, The Trans List, Becoming Nicole book) will join the show in the series regular role of Nia Nal, aka Dreamer. In addition to Maines, Supergirl fans can look forward to the addition of the following new cast members: series regular April Parker Jones (Jericho, The Last Ship) as Colonel Haley and David Ajala (Dr. Who, Nightflyers, The Dark Knight), who will recur as Manchester Black.
These three cast members join the previously announced new series regulars Jesse Rath (who plays the Legion of Super Heroes’ Brainiac-5) and Sam Witwer (who will play Agent Liberty). Supergirl returns for its fourth season on October 14 in its new Sunday 8/7c time period on The CW.
