Other DC Comics characters we want on 'Arrow' and 'The Flash'

Warner Bros. didn’t make any announcements at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con regarding future DC Comics films, so who knows when we’ll get a Justice League movie. Thankfully, the CW’s excellent series Arrow and new series The Flash are here to fulfill all of our fangirl/fanboy desires while we wait for an actual JL team-up onscreen.

This fall,  Arrow and The Flash are diving deeper into the DC Universe, bringing many favorites from the comics to the screen. Ra’s Al Ghul, Wildcat, Atom, and Katana will all be introduced on Arrow this season, and The Flash recently cast Robbie Amell—that’s Arrow star Stephen Amell’s cousin—as Ronnie Raymond, who makes up one half of the superhero Firestorm. That’s exciting news for DC fans.

But there is so much more that can done! We’ve put together our wish list for other DC Comics characters we’d like to see introduced in the shared Arrow-Flash television universe. READ FULL STORY

Stephen Amell makes us want to resurrect 'Battle of the Network Stars' (paging Mark Harmon) -- VIDEO

With three weeks until he starts filming season 3 of the CW’s Arrow, Stephen Amell is hitting the gym hard, and we’re all reaping the benefits, really, as he continues to post his “Superhero Workout” videos on his Facebook page and YouTube channel. They involve slo-mo. So no, you’re not the only one seeing it that way. I checked.

I had two thoughts as I viewed the videos below. First, Arrow producers must be both thrilled to have a star who works this hard — and who, fingers crossed, helps the stunt team score an Emmy nom — and nervous that he’ll injure himself. I’d make them watch the slo-mo jump into those mats in Workout #2 on loop if I ever need to torture them. READ FULL STORY

'Arrow' finale recap: The hero this city deserves

Spoiler alert: If you haven’t watched the season finale of Arrow, stop reading now!

My heart can’t take it. And those of you who watch this show with me every week know exactly what I’m about to say: That Olicity scene was faked?! I literally feel like I’ve just been broken up with. And yes, that does make me re-evaluate my life a little bit. But the good news is that this finale was so much more than that one scene. It was action-packed, it provided closure, and it gave us a lot to look forward to. Let’s save this city for one last time in season 2, shall we? READ FULL STORY

PopWatch Planner: Cristina leaves 'Grey's Anatomy,' 'Godzilla' takes over theaters, a new Black Keys album, and more

Too many finales, too little time! That seems to be the theme of the week, with eight finales on the agenda in eight days. But don’t think that’s all this week has to offer. Thanks to Godzilla, your summer blockbuster tour can continue. Plus, there’s a new Black Keys album to keep you company in all of your post-finale mood swings.

Here’s what your week looks like:

'Arrow' recap: All is fair in love and war

Spoiler alert: If you haven’t watched the May 7 episode of Arrow, stop reading now!

Honestly, the fact that I’m still alive to write this recap is a miracle, because I’m pretty sure I did not take a breath through that entire episode. Sitting in my apartment watching by myself, I didn’t say a word, I didn’t go on Twitter during commercials, I didn’t do anything but stare at my television, listen to my heart pounding in my chest, and occasionally think, “How is this not the finale?!” This show just keeps getting better, and I cannot wait for next week. Here’s what went down: READ FULL STORY

'Arrow' star Colton Haynes explains why 'Annie' is the scariest movie he's ever seen in our Personality Test -- VIDEO

Arrow‘s Colton Haynes has been missing out on the action as of late — but with Slade’s Mirakuru army taking over the city, we’re hoping  it’s only a matter of time until Roy is venom-less and back in a red hoodie.

While you wait for tonight’s sure-to-be-epic episode, we’ve got a little something to hold you over. EW recently put Haynes in the hot seat for our Pop Culture Personality Test, during which he revealed that Christina Aguilera was his first celebrity crush, and that his go-to karaoke songs are “(Sittin’ On) The Dock of the Bay” by Otis Redding and “Smooth” by Matchbox Twenty. Why Matchbox Twenty? “You do the air guitar in between and that always gets you more points, so if you don’t sound good, at least you look good,” Haynes explained.

To find out more about the actor, watch his Personality Test below, in which he reveals the movie he always quotes and the boy band he (sort of) auditioned for:

'Arrow' recap: Orange is the new black

And here we go.

After last week’s shocking episode, Slade Wilson has only just begun to take down Starling, and this week was all about his minions and their leader, Sebastian Blood. Also, tears. This week was all about the tears (both the characters’ and my own). Let’s do this! READ FULL STORY

'Arrow' recap: Mama knows best

Spoiler alert: If you haven’t watched the April 23 episode of Arrow, stop reading now! Seriously. Stop. You’ll regret it. Don’t even glance down a little bit. I mean it.

Wow. Just wow. For some reason, it never occurred to me that Slade would re-enact Ollie’s island choice with Thea and Moira, but it made perfect sense. That being said, his decision to do it with the world’s biggest sword — that appeared as if from nowhere — was interesting, but that doesn’t matter right now. No matter how it happened, Moira is dead, and I’m heartbroken. She sacrificed herself for her children, and my heart is still pounding. Before it stops beating altogether, let’s rehash what just happened: READ FULL STORY

'Arrow' recap: It's not easy being green

Spoiler alert: If you haven’t seen the April 16 episode of Arrow, stop reading now!

Well, that was an action-packed welcome back to Starling City! We have a lot to talk about, but first, I have to say that the moment I’m still hung up on from this episode was that maneuver where Oliver successfully flipped Felicity over the stairwell and they somehow both landed on their feet like they were cats or something. Is that weird? I mean, I know a lot just happened and major stuff is going down, but was that not incredibly impressive? Am I the only one stuck on this? That’s cool. I’ll move on. READ FULL STORY

'Arrow' react: 'I am my own worst enemy'

Spoiler alert: If you haven’t watched that April 2 episode of Arrow, stop reading now!

So Slade’s plan is officially underway, and the first three steps seem to be as follows: 1) Tell Thea that Malcolm Merlyn is her biological father. 2) Hijack a bus full of prisoners in order to expand his army. And 3) Tell Laurel that Oliver is the mother freakin’ Arrow. Yep, that just happened. Let’s get into it!
