The CW Renews Arrow for a Third Season!

SuperHeroHype

Feb 13, 2014

With just a few more episodes left in its second season, The CW has officially announced that they've renewed their hit series "Arrow" for a third season set to air this fall.

"This season we've had great success with our new hit series The Originals paired with Supernatural, giving us our best Tuesday nights in years," CW president Mark Pedowitz said. "The Vampire Diaries is No. 2 in its time period in the young adult demos, and with Arrow continuing to gain among young men, and Reign growing its time period, we now have strong nights on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. I'm very pleased to announce early pickups for all five series, and let our fans know they’ll have more great drama to look forward to next season."

"Arrow" saw its biggest ratings this season with episode 2.08 "The Scientist," which saw Grant Gustin guest starring as Barry Allen, who will hopefully have his own series on The CW this fall with "The Flash."

"Arrow" airs on Wednesdays at 8 P.M. ET/PT on The CW.​

As if it were really in doubt, but I'm always glad to get the confirmation. My son has me hooked on this show, and he got to meet Stephen Amell at Dallas Sci Fi Expo this past weekend.

Some of the least surprising news we'll probably hear this year.

But like you said, good to know.

Now if SHIELD would get a similar announcement.

It's almost as big of a surprise as the renewal of Walking Dead Shell hahahahaha. Not quite but almost. I've really enjoyed the heck out of this show.

From what I'd heard on various entertainment websites SHIELD's renewal is not a sure thing. It probably WILL be but don't be surprised if it winds up canceled either.

They aren't cancelling shield. Marvel is too big for that. They'll give it at least two seasons.

I don't think it's nearly as bad as everyone else seems to though.

I love the show too and I think it's coming back as well. About a 75% chance. But it is not a lock like Arrow was.

Everyone has been raving about the ending of the season so it sounds like it's going to end on a strong note. Besides, why get rid of a way to get Lady Sif on screen? :D

John Barrowman Upgraded to Series Regular for Arrow Season 3

SuperHeroHype

May 15, 2014

With "Arrow" having wrapped up its second season last night, and The CW upfronts taking place today, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed that actor John Barrowman, who plays Malcolm Merlyn, has been upgraded to a series regular for the third season of the DC Comics=based show. Here's the official description for the third season of "Arrow," which is set to begin this fall:

"After a violent shipwreck, billionaire playboy Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) was missing and presumed dead for five years before being discovered alive on a remote island in the Pacific. He returned home to Starling City, bent on righting the wrongs of his family and fighting injustice. To do this, he creates the persona of the Arrow and allies himself with former military man John Diggle (David Ramsey), computer-science expert Felicity Smoak (Emily Bett Rickards), street brawler Roy Harper (Colton Haynes) and international assassin Sara Lance (Caity Lotz), while keeping his secret from those closest to him including his sister Thea (Willa Holland), who has allied herself with his most deadly enemy. Rivalries and allegiances will shift as Oliver faces his most difficult challenge yet."

"Arrow" airs Wednesdays at 8 P.M. ET/PT on The CW.​​​​

Casting Breakdowns Tease New Characters for Arrow Season Three

SuperHeroHype

Jun 14, 2014

TV Line has managed to get their hands on a number of character breakdowns for some new roles for the upcoming third season of "Arrow," and it would appear we're getting some new DC heroes added to the mix!

The first character is "Daniel," a name the site says is likely a placeholder so as not to reveal the character. His breakdown reads: "20something gent — a major recurring character for Season 3 — is a handsome, enigmatic and highly intelligent entrepreneur developing groundbreaking technology. (Picture a business magnate in Ryan Gosling’s body.) Though exuding charm and confidence in public, he privately harbors a tragic past that will drive him to become a tech-powered superhero. Watch for this formidable fella to be a love interest for Felicity and a rival of Oliver’s – both personally and professionally."

Given previous mentions of the character and his company in "Arrow," and the "Tech-powered superhero" bit, we're going to guess that this character is actually Ted Kord aka The Blue Beetle. A member of the Justice League in the comics, as the Blue Beetle Kord utilized a variety of gadgets and weapons to take down crime in addition to being a skilled acrobat and martial artist.

The second character description is for a character named "Seth" and it reads: "A well-educated criminal with grand ambitions and a knack for chemistry, this potentially recurring character gains power over his enemies by exposing them to a drug that drains their willpower. Oh, and he is very much a physical match for The Arrow."

It's possible that this could be Jonathan Crane aka Scarecrow, though he's never been much of a physical match for anyone in previous incarnations.

The final two characters are potentially original ones, who will appear in the flashbacks of the new season, named "Toshi" and "Akiko." Toshi is described as: "Oliver’s teacher and handler, and eventually a friend. A well-trained operative, skilled in weaponry, combat and intelligence gathering, he is also a devoted father and husband."

While Akiko is described as: "Toshi’s wife is another of Oliver’s Hong Kong caretakers, and is herself highly skilled in martial arts."

Returning this fall for its third season, "Arrow" airs Wednesdays at 8 P.M. ET/PT on The CW.​​​​

Devon Aoki Cast as Katana on The CW’s Arrow!

SuperHeroHype

Jul 01, 2014

Image

Deadline brings word this afternoon that actress Devon Aoki has been cast as Tatsu Yamashiro, aka Katana, for the upcoming third season of "Arrow"!

A skilled martial artist, Katana gets her name form the deadly sword she wields which contains the souls of everyone she has killed, including her late husband. It's unclear if this supernatural angle will manifest itself in the character in the series, but we do know that she will be important to Oliver's flashback sequences in the upcoming season. In the comics, the character is closely associated not only with the Birds of Prey but also Batman's The Outsiders.

This isn't the only sword-bearing comic character Aoki has played either, as she took on the role of Miho for the original Sin City in 2005.

"Arrow" airs Wednesdays at 8 P.M. ET/PT on The CW with the new season set to premiere on October 8th.

For some reason this announcement just got me really excited. Can't wait to see how the character is portrayed in the show and how they connect her to Arrow ....

Yesterday brought us the news that Devon Aoki had been cast as Tatsu Yamashiro (aka Katana) in the third season of "Arrow" and now we know she's not alone. TVLine has learned that Real Steel's Karl Yune has been cast as her husband Maseo Yamashiro for the series as well.

The site reports that Yune will be introduced into the series as Oliver's handler during the Hong Kong-centered flashbacks of season three. They also write: "Over time, he also will evolve into a teacher and a friend who helps Oliver step ever closer to becoming the superhero he is today."

Peter Stormare Brings a New Form of Vertigo to Arrow

SuperHeroHype

Jul 03, 2014

(SPOILER NOTE: If you haven't been watching The CW show "Arrow" this past season and plan to in the future, you may want to bypass reading this article that spoils the death of a major character.)

When the CW's popular superhero series "Arrow" returns for its third season on Wednesday, October 8, they will be introducing a brand new version of Count Vertigo in the form of veteran character actor Peter Stormare.

Although the original Count Vertigo, played by Seth Gabel, died last season, Stormare will play Werner Zytle (Count Vertigo's alias in the comics), dealer in a drug called Vertigo who also goes by the name Vertigo.

Stormare is one of the most prolific character actors in film, often playing villain roles as he did in the recent 22 Jump Street, Michael Bay's Bad Boys II and others, plus he famously appeared in the Coen Brothers' popular movies, Fargo and The Big Lebowski. He regularly appears in 7 to 10 movies and television shows in any given year.
