“Oliver Queen is Dead” in New ‘Arrow’ Trailer

Last time we saw Oliver Queen he was being stabbed in the heart by Ra’s au Ghul and pushed off of a snowy cliff in a battle to protect his sister, Thea (and get Malcolm Merlyn off of Ra’s hit list).

The first trailer for the new episode after the series’ Winter hiatus, sees Malcolm breaking into Team Arrow’s hiding place and placing Ra’s bloodied sword in front of them. He explains how Ra’s has a “custom” of leaving the weapon used to kill someone as a memorial to the dead.

So while our “fearless” leader is “dead,” it’s up to the rest of the team to take over the protection of Starling City including the dreaded Glades. Towards the end of the trailer, there’s someone running from an explosion, shooting arrows, but we can’t be quite sure if it’s Oliver, back from the dead, as the Arrow or sidekick Arsenal (aka Roy Harper) taking over the Arrow-ly duties.

Check out the trailer below and let us know your theories.

Arrow returns to the CW on Wednesday, Jan. 21.

Watch the Trailer for ‘Flash vs. Arrow’ Part Two

Last night we saw  the Arrow make his official debut in Central City as Oliver Queen and the rest of Team Arrow (Felicity and Diggle) ended up there while following the show’s new baddie, Captain Boomerang.

While there, Oliver joined forces with Barry Allen and his Flash Crew at S.T.A.R. Labs to take down their baddie of the week, Prism, who brought out the rage inside of Barry making him a self-centered, rude, and all around asshat.

Insert one of the coolest fight sequences we’ve seen or like someone on Twitter pointed out “that was the best action movie I have seen all year.”

Tonight, the Flash Crew will be heading over to Starling City to help Team Arrow take down Captain Boomerang because how else would you sign off for the mid-season than to have one major crossover?

Check out the trailer for tonight’s Arrow which finds Oliver telling Barry that they’re going to do things his way, unlike last night when Oliver lost all control of the situation as well as that question asked last night by Cisco (and every single fan of both series): Who will win in a battle between the two?

According to Barry, he will since when he fights with Oliver, it’s like the Arrow is standing still.

Jared Leto to Become the ‘Suicide Squad’ Joker?

It seems like a lot of people are hoping that one day soon, 30 Seconds to Mars frontman Jared Leto will portray a superhero or a villain in a big budget film, or at least that’s what it’s beginning to sound like.

Last year, there was talk that he would be taking on the much sought after role of Dr. Strange, but that was squashed recently.

Now, talks have begun that the singer and :”part-time” actor will be taking on the role of the Joker in DC Comic’s upcoming Suicide Squad film due to be released in 2016. The film, which has been described as “a dirty dozen with supervillains” will be directed by David Ayer and is set to begin filming in Toronto in February.

But while Leto seems likely, with The Hollywood Reporter writing that “Jai Courtney, Tom Hardy, Margot Robbie [and Jared Leto] are in the final stages of talks for the role.”

But Leto recently told the publication that he’s been “sworn to keep my mouth shut,” which probably jump-started the rumors.

When MTV asked Leto the same question during and interview, he told them, “You know there’s a film called Fight Club, my friends, and you know what the first rule is, don’t you?”

As for the premise of the Suicide Squad movie, it’s something along the lines of “convicted supervillains are given a chance to redeem themselves through dangerous missions.”

Though it may seem a little weird on DC’s side to pick a group of supervillains going on dangerous missions to redeem themselves as the premise of one of their many upcoming films, it’s actually a very smart plan.

During episode 39 of The CW’s Arrow, the Suicide Squad became the central story with everything revolving around them and Oliver Queen’s bodyguard/second in command/ friend, John Diggle. Though we had previously been introduced to Deadshot, Bronze Tiger and Amanda Waller in other episodes (individually) we saw them all have to team up and then again during the season two finale.

Most recently, in the television series, we find Queen handing over his insane, number one fangirl, Cupid, over to the Suicide Squad as well.

Watch the ‘Flash vs. Arrow’ Trailer

As many television shows are getting ready to go on their mid-season hiatus, two shows are preparing themselves for a massive crossover event that has been teased since the beginning of its spin-off series.

Next week, both of The CW’s comic-centric shows, Arrow and The Flash, will go off the air with a special, two-part finale which finds both superheros appear in each show, once again.

Last night during a new episode of The Flash, The CW released the first trailer for the crossover where we see Barry Allen and Oliver Queen battle it out making fans wonder what led these two guys to go from buddies to enemies.

According to a release from the people behind both hit shows, Oliver tell Barry that he has “a lot to learn,” so Barry sets out to prove him wrong which of course might be the match that lights the fire that results in “The Flash vs. Arrow.”

Check out the first of two trailer for the upcoming special.

“The Flash vs. Arrow” will premiere at 8 p.m. next Tuesday (Dec. 2) on The CW. We’re also betting that we’ll see the trailer for the Arrow counterpart episode tonight during the show.

Thank you, CW for giving us an extended, five-minute look at your newest superhero television series, The Flash.

For those of you who are not familiar with the beginnings of the Flash, the extended look at the new series that is slated to make its debut on The CW this Fall on Mondays, thanks to the new information that was released by the network during their Upfront today.

The five-minute trailer for the series picks up right where Barry’s arc on Arrow ended, with the big explosion that eventually gave him his superhuman speed. In the trailer we are also introduced to two characters that have already made their debut as scientists that helped Oliver Queen, the Green Arrow and his “Team Arrow” members come up with the serum that helped cure the big problem of season two, Caitlin Snow (Danielle Panabaker) and Cisco Ramon (Carlos Valdez).

Check out the look below. How much longer now before a mini Justice League meet up happens?

Watch the First Trailer for ‘The Flash’

The CW announced last week that they would in fact be picking up The Flash starring Grant Gustin as nerdy, forensic assistant Barry Allen aka The Flash. Gustin made his debut as Allen during the first half of the CW’s other DC Comic inspired television show, Arrow and who can forget Oliver Queen’s (Stephen Amell) first words to the future superhero, “do his parents know he’s here?”

Well, things have changed since his debut like being struck by some powerful thing resulting in him being in a coma since his last appearance, according to Oliver’s bubbly IT genius, Felicity Smoak. While fans of Arrow were given the season two finale which we will not spoil for those that haven’t seen it yet, they also teased and gave us the first look at Gustin as The Flash, not just Barry.

Check out the first look below which at first you might think is just a preview for Arrow rather than The Flash.

And also keep in mind the phrase “show-off.”
