Wednesday 8:00 PM on The CW
I may as well start off with this: Arrow has been renewed for season 3
(via TVovermind)

*Back in November Arrow Executive Producer Greg Berlanti said there had been no discussions regarding connecting the Warner Bros. DC cinematic universe with the DC-based shows being made for The CW

Some time later there were quotes going around from Amell regarding the possibility of an appearance in an upcoming big screen DC movie (either Man of Steel 2 or a Justice League movie).

Amell has taken to is facebook page to clarify the situation:

"At no point, have I had "studio level" discussions about any feature films at Warner Bros."
(via Stephen Amell's facebook)

*Amell also likes to post Q&A videos on his facebook page, recently he posted one because he hit 750k "likes". During the Q&A, (which aired before the last episode), highlights included:

- "I would just like a third season." Hopefully, it will be more than that.
- We will find out what the tattoos all mean.
- Amell misses saying, "You have failed this city!"
- He didn't turn down a role in "Fifty Shades of Grey." He didn't even audition for it. "I read the book, and I didn't really like it ... I have a better job than 'Fifty Shades of Grey.' I play a superhero!"
- "I steal things from set sometimes."
- A bear visited Amell while shooting the Season 1 finale.
- "My life is roughly perfect." Yes. Yes it is.
- "At 22 years old, I would have totally f***ed this up."

You can watch the interview HERE

* A few episodes back Deathstroke was revealed in all his glory, and now concept sketches by costume designer Maya Mani and illustrator Andy Poon have emerged online:

* Arrow executive producer Andrew Kreisberg was stressing the importance of Nyssa al Ghul, "She's one of the most important figures in the League." he told a press conference at the CW headquarters.

Katrina Law told reporters, "I love the fact that she hasn't been in any movies, and interpretation is left wide open between the writers and myself, and what we want to do," Law told reporters. "I love that she's only been in the comic books I think a total of 19 times. Everything about her is just wide open. It's so much more fun than having something that's rigid and defined for you that you have to play with in the confines of a box."

The reason this is interesting is because executive producer Marc Guggenheim is quoted as saying "There are little nuggets that we've actually already sprinkled throughout this season that won't pay off this year -- it'll pay off next year. You'll see, 'There really was a plan. They really did know what they were doing.'"

* Speaking of Nyssa Costume designer Maya Mani and costume illustrator Andy Poon teamed up to create the designs for how she would look and here is the concept art:

* Arrow exec Greg Berlanti has revealed to Digital Spy what fans can expect from the climax of season two :

"Every year we do one episode that's more primarily an all-island episode and the wraparounds for that - the story that's happening in the present - is a direct confrontation between Oliver and Slade,"

There's not much else, I couldn't see any mentions of Suicide Squad or Birds of Prey except: "Those are all things that are coming up - our own versions of those things,"

TV Guide has details of The Huntress' return later this season, I won't include details but Marc Guggenheim had this to say:

"We consider Jessica a member of the Arrow family and we're looking forward to having her back for an episode everyone will be talking about after,"

* ComicBookMovie.com has an article with Stephen Amell where he reveals that there is a 5 year plan for the series:

“Oliver has a back story… and we have a plan to tell that backstory over 5 seasons. That’s the plan but all you ever think about is shooting episode 18 right now. That’s our forty-first episode… and all we think about is we need to make our forty-first episode better than our fortieth episode.”
He also talks about the season finale:

“Some people haven’t heard about the size and scope of our finale. We are actually saving money on episodes we are shooting right now so that we can put it into the finale. And I have no idea how they are gonna turn that around in time.”

Here is a snippet of a Q&A from from the Dallas Comic Con where Stephen Amell reveals a couple of things :

Which leads me nicely to...

** FLASH ROUND-UP **


I may as well put this stuff in here as well.

* Digital Spy reveals there is a backup plan in case The Flash fails. Greg Berlanti revealed :

“Fingers crossed we don’t screw it up and he gets his own show!” says the producer. “If he didn’t, I don’t think we would ever want to let Grant go. He’s too valuable. That would be our hope, I think – no matter what, to keep Barry part of the universe.”

He also hinted at super powered villains:

"We've talked a lot on Arrow about the particle collider and Harrison Wells and S.T.A.R. Labs and so you'll see S.T.A.R. Labs as an active part of the show," .
* Screencrush has some casting details on the parts of Detective West, Iris West, Cisco Ramon, Catlin Snow, Harrison Wells, Detective Eddie Thawne (there is a bit of speculation going on about Detective Eddie Thawne - his name is very similar to a comic book character, that's all I'm going to say).

*In case you forgot, there already was a Flash TV series and it starred John Wesley Shipp. And he will be popping up in the pilot as a "mysterious character"
(via THR)

And I'll finish off with a promo for Arrow's next episode on February 26th:

This season finale will be the true test for Oliver's resolve of being a hero. He will face not just a great villain, a true nemesis, but he will also face every decision, every mistake he ever made. It will be the forge of a hero or Oliver's biggest, definitive demise.
Not to mention what's behind all that. A silent coming of the League of Assassins, truly the benefector of Slade. They're also behind Moira's mayoral campaign as a way to infiltrate Starling City's administration. They're going to try and destroy the city from within, will be up to Oliver to stop them.
But stopping the League of Assassins means face-up agains his own mother, the future mayor of Starling City, that will hunt him (as the Arrow) down after his fistfight with Deathstroke.
By now we've just heard mentions of the League (Moira mentioning Ras Al GHul to Malcolm, Sarah running away from them, Nyssa coming to get her back), but the League will be the biggest threat to Oliver in the next season. He will soon discover a deep connection between Moira and the League (her biggest secret), that Robert first brought the League to Starling City (every name in the list is linked to the League) and that everything he had to deal with since he got out of the island is the League's doing.
I think that all Oliver's struggle to become a hero will backfire on him thanks to Slade and he will start the next season as the villain, fighting even harder to prove he's not the bad guy.

hey just a thought, now that the show is introducing powers(Barry allen aka The Flash), it would be really cool if Bruce Wayne(Batman) went to starling city to make business with the Queens and Clark Kent(Super-Man) and Lois Lane would make an interview about the Queens

That might be a few years away yet. DC are probably going to sort out there movies plan before tying in to TV, and the producers at Arrow has previously stated that they have to get permission from DC before they use certain characters

Can't say how much I love for you for this post. Those concept designs are phenomenal!!!! I cannot stress that enough. As a big fan of Deathstroke and Nyssa's designs I am so ecstatic to have access to their concepts.

Thanks for pointing that out! Definitely liked the final choice they made, but it is cool to see that there is an exhaustive process to costume design. I rarely get to see such behind the scenes info.

The whole crew on Arrow are very cool in that respect. They drop hints in interviews, but after a reveal (like Nyssa) they show what goes into the process of making the show.
When Black Canary turned up and had her fight with the Dollmaker, they released a 'making of' video about the fight scene - something you would normally consider a DVD extra!
