To me, one of the most intriguing aspects of Arrow‘s current season has been that of the Black Siren situation. So far, she’s proven to be one of the most ambiguous and duplicitous people to have ventured to Star City in quite some time, siding with the other criminals to terrorize the town all the while Quentin Lance tries to bring her back from the abyss.

But most unfortunate for the new mayor is that his not-daughter is spending a lot of time with crime lord Ricardo Diaz, some information that he’ll become privy to before long. In fact, the accompanying gallery shows Lance is about to learn the truth in next week’s episode, “Shifting Allegiances.”

Now, as you peruse these images, we ask that you that you slow down once you arrive at the ones to include Quentin and Laurel. Really, it plays out like a bizarrely hilarious flip book, and I wouldn’t doubt if the photo where the former has a look of pure rage on his face gets turned into a meme.

Despite Diaz assuming he holds all the cards, we can’t rule out Black Siren pulling an eleventh hour defection – or shifting her allegiance, if you will – because her boss is so brutish. Personally, I see her as a woman who made some wrong choices and essentially became a gun-for-hire. But as we learned in last night’s episode, “The Dragon,” she seems to think there’s an unnecessary barbarism to Diaz’s actions, thus forcing me to think her loyalty isn’t set in stone.

For more, be sure to check out the official synopsis:

RENE RETURNS TO NTA – Oliver (Stephen Amell) turns to an old friend to help battle Diaz (guest star Kirk Acevedo). Meanwhile, Rene (Rick Gonzalez) is out of the hospital but has a hard time re-adjusting to life as Wild Dog. Also, Lance (Paul Blackthorne) discovers something shocking about Black Siren (Katie Cassidy). Alexandra La Roche directed the episode written by Wendy Mericle & Rebecca Bellotto (#620). Original airdate 4/26/2018.

When any sort of TV series enjoys much longevity, it shouldn’t come as a surprise once a regime change occurs. In the case of Arrow, we’ll soon bear witness to just that as some fresh eyes will be overseeing the Emerald Archer beginning with the show’s seventh season.

Well, actually, the soon-to-be big boss has been around in some capacity since the first season – it’s just that she’s worked her way up from writers assistant all the way to executive producer and now sole showrunner! We are, of course, talking about Beth Schwartz.

Here’s what Greg Berlanti, one of the chief architects behind the Arrowverse as a whole, had to say about her promotion:

“We are all so incredibly thrilled to announce Beth Schwartz as the new showrunner of Arrow. She has been a source of some of the show’s most exciting and memorable moments from the beginning. Beth is a true leader and a captivating storyteller, and we all can’t wait for the audience to see what she and her team dream up as they take Arrow into its next big chapter.”

As for what’ll happen to the old guard, Wendy Mericle is said to be making a complete exit, while Marc Guggenheim will remain on as an executive consultant. Similarly, he’ll take on that same position at Legends of Tomorrow, with Phil Klemmer stepping up as the one and only showrunner over there.

Getting back to Schwartz, we’re sure she can handle the responsibility, but it falls on her to dig Oliver Queen out of whatever hole this season’s finale will place him. Right now, we know nothing more than it’ll be a huge game-changer, but I guess charting the next part of the saga will be much of the fun for her. Plus, she gets to reintroduce Colton Haynes as a series regular, the news of which has already made countless fans go bananas.

Well, it sure did take some time getting here, but tonight’s episode of Arrow – appropriately titled “The Dragon” – finally gave us a healthy amount of insight into the man that is Ricardo Diaz. When you think about it, it makes sense that the producers held off for a bit because he largely lurked in the shadows during the beginning of the season, allowing Cayden James to serve as a red herring of sorts.

So, now that we’re well aware of his sordid childhood and why he’s the sick S.O.B. that he is today, we can only hope that actor Kirk Acevedo continues knocking it out of the park in this final stretch of episodes. In fact, it appears as though Diaz will achieve new levels of depravity in the penultimate outing.

Without further delay, here’s the official synopsis for May 10’s offering, “The Ties That Bind”:

DIAZ AIMS FOR TEAM ARROW AND THEIR FAMILIES — Diaz (guest star Kirk Acevedo) targets Team Arrow and their loved ones. Oliver (Stephen Amell) struggles with Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) putting herself in danger when she gets the chance to stop Diaz for good. Tara Miele directed the episode written by Ben Sokolowski & Oscar Balderrama (#622).  Original airdate 5/10/2018.

All we ask is that Felicity not do something as goofy as putting on the Atom suit as she did back in season 3. Do you remember that gem?

Anyway, considering how we know that the season finale will be a great game-changer, it’s probably safe to assume that the stage will be set here, though I’m not sure if one can expect major deaths until the concluding episode – but you never really know. I just can’t help but think that Oliver’s son, William, will find himself caught in the crosshairs for the umpteenth time.

Arrow‘s sixth season so far has featured several elements that could be considered game-changing. Team Arrow has broken apart over the past little while, Willa Holland – who had been part of the show since the very beginning – appeared for the last time and let’s not forget this was the first run not to utilize the flashback structure that fueled the first five years.

However, it seems this has all been paving the way for something huge that’s set to happen in the season 6 finale. In a recent interview, Arrow showrunner Marc Guggenheim promised that the upcoming climax of the current run of The CW’s DC TV show will be “unconventional” and “a real game-changer.”

“It’s gonna be interesting. It’s very, you know, I’ve been saying it’s an unconventional kind of finale. It still feels very much like a season finale. When I first started talking about it we hadn’t written the darn thing yet, but now we’ve written it and we’re in prep on it and on Monday we start shooting. And it’s a real game-changer.”

Intriguingly, Guggenheim went on to hint that this finale, which will “fundamentally change” the series, has been planned from the very beginning of the season. The EP hopes that fans will be surprised by whatever it is that’s revealed, though they’ll ultimately feel that everything has been leading up to this.

“The show fundamentally changes in the finale and I think you’ll see there’s stuff that we were seeding back in the season premiere that finally comes to fruition here in the season finale, so you’ll see that there was a very specific plan to the entire season. We always knew that this is where we were headed to. So, hopefully in subtle ways have been teasing this all along without you realizing it. My hope is that people are surprised, but also look back and are like oh, that was kind of the only way that they could have ended the season.”

This isn’t the first time the producer has teased that fans should be expecting something big. Guggenheim previously promised that season 6 will end on a massive cliffhanger, though not one that’s as literally explosive as the final moments of season 5. If you remember, that episode saw Oliver fearing that his friends had perished on an explosion on Lian Yu, as caused by Prometheus.

At the time of writing. we’ve still got a few weeks to go until the finale is here, but be sure to catch Arrow 6×19 “The Dragon” this Thursday, April 19th on The CW.

Among the many things the current season of Arrow has going for it, the elder series in The CW’s DC TV universe can lay claim to bringing back a number of fan favorites in recent memory. Already, we’ve been witness to some unforgettable returns made by Manu Bennett’s Deathstroke and Colton Haynes’ Roy Harper (who’ll be rejoining the principal cast next year), with even Josh Segarra reprising his role of Prometheus as part of Oliver Queen’s Vertigo-induced hallucination in last night’s episode!

Well, it looks like the producers aren’t through pulling out all the stops because, believe it or not, Colin Donnell will soon be returning as Tommy Merlyn. I mean, we knew it was coming at some point, but now we know exactly when to expect him: May 3rd.

Since his unfortunate demise at the end of season 1, Tommy has popped up here and there as either a hallucination or via flashback scenes. Actually, he did turn out to be the Prometheus of Earth-X during last fall’s mega crossover event, but that guy was a different beast entirely. Still, we can’t help but wonder how this instance will play out.

Aside from this knowledge, the official synopsis for the excitingly titled “Docket No. 11-19-41-73” doesn’t reveal all that much, as has been the case for recent descriptions pertaining to this series:

COLIN DONNELL GUEST STARS — The pressure mounts for Oliver (Stephen Amell) who begins to wonder if he will lose everything in his battle to save Star City. A familiar face returns. Andi Armaganian directed the episode with teleplay by Ubah Mohamed & Tyron B. Carter and story by Marc Guggenheim (#621). Original airdate 5/3/2018.

Having kept up with the current season of Arrow, I can’t help but notice how it appears as though Oliver Queen is having his life torn down around him. He may have reconnected with his estranged son, sure, but the new recruits have gone about their own business, Thea recently split town, and now John Diggle has left the Emerald Archer’s crusade in favor of a position at ARGUS. What is a hooded vigilante to do?

If we’re to compound this laundry list of happenings with the freshly released gallery of images found below, well, then we have all the more reason to tune in for the next episode. As you can see, Oliver has decided to dust off his old costume for a confrontation with Ricardo Diaz and his thugs. One could argue that we’ll be witness to a flashback, yes, but all signs point toward our hero being bitten by the nostalgia bug.

While this fashion choice may seem minor, I’m reminded of how series lead Stephen Amell teased a comeback of the suit he wore back in season 4 not long ago. So, unless we’re about to be treated to a serious amount of scenes taking place in the past, one can only assume that Ollie is about to run the costuming gamut for some reason that is unknown to us at this point.

And if stylish threads weren’t enough, the synopsis for “Fundamentals” hints at an old ally resurfacing:

OLIVER IS VISITED BY A GHOST FROM HIS PAST – In his darkest place yet, Oliver (Stephen Amell) wonders if he has failed at everything – being a father, a mayor and a hero. His frustration rising, Oliver lashes out at Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) and William (guest star Jack Moore). A surprising visit from an old friend has Oliver questioning his next move. Ben Bray directed the episode written by Speed Weed & Emilio Ortega Aldrich (#618). Original airdate 4/12/2018.

At this point, it’s very hard to imagine the Arrow landscape without John Diggle. Really, David Ramsey’s character has been there since the very beginning and has evolved from being Oliver Queen’s bodyguard to Spartan, a superhero in his own right who has been key in the crusade to save Star City for the past several years. Granted, Ollie and Dig had quite the spat near the end of season 3, but they’d since patched things up.

Well, maybe I spoke too soon, because their working relationship fell apart during last week’s episode, “Brothers in Arms,” when the two actually came to blows! Needless to say, it was hard to watch those guys pummel each other, but kudos go to the writers for giving them both compelling arguments – and to actors Stephen Amell and David Ramsey for making it believable.

Of course, they were able to work past their differences for the interim and blow up a warehouse full of Vertigo, but we ultimately left things off by seeing Diggle going about his own way and joining up with his wife at ARGUS. Naturally, this causes viewers to wonder how long that’ll last, but Ramsey hinted to TV Line this’ll be the new normal:

“Diggle has made a firm choice in his life about where his place is with the team. This is something he’s discussed with his wife (Lyla, played by returning guest star Audrey Marie Anderson), so this is a major, fundamental move.”

Now, this is something the producers could easily go back on, but it’s hard to notice that everything surrounding Oliver Queen is being torn down. In fact, we’ve been told to expect a dramatic shift in the show’s overall status quo near the end of the current season, so that may end up resulting in season 7 paring down to, say, only Green Arrow and Arsenal hitting the streets now that Colton Haynes is back on as a series regular.

Actress Juliana Harkavy already plays a version of one of DC’s biggest heroines on The CW’s Arrowbut she wouldn’t mind crossing over to the Marvel universe to play a certain member of the X-Men.

While talking to Bounding Into Comics, the Arrow star admitted that she would “love to play Storm,” though she said that she’s a big fan of the X-Men world, in general. “All of the X-Men characters really intrigue me,” she added.

Regardless of gender, Harkavy also has her sights on the big guy himself: Wolverine, the iconic mutant that Hugh Jackman recently played for the last time on the big screen. “Wolverine is my favorite,” said the actress. “And I don’t know how I would live in that world, but I would love to at some point.”

The site then gave the actress some good news. The character of X-23, Logan’s female clone, has taken on her father’s mantle and become Wolvie in the comics. It sounds like Harkavy is all over this idea and would love to play X-23.

“I had no idea. That’s exactly who I would want to play like a thousand percent, that’s so cool. That’s so cool. I would love to do something like that.”

Juliana Harkavy Arrow

Fans will know that X-23 AKA Laurey Kinney made her big screen debut in 2017’s Logan, as played by actress Dafne Keen. At the end of the film, young Laura had buried her father and was leading a bunch of mutant kids to sanctuary.

Director James Mangold has spoken about how he’s developing a solo movie based on the character and it’s possible that this film might age Laura up and check in on her several years later. In which case, maybe Harkavy has a shot at the role?

Time will tell, but for now, the actress can currently be seen in Arrow‘s sixth season, which is airing every Thursday on The CW.

There’ve been several hints that Batman exists in the Arrowverse over the years. However, the biggest confirmation came on an episode of Arrow back in October, where Oliver Queen openly spoke of Bruce Wayne, confirming the billionaire’s existence in this continuity.

While many might consider this as merely a tribute to the Dark Knight, the one thing we’ve learned about the Arrowverse is that nothing’s ever a coincidence. Much like the Man of Steel appearing in Supergirl, don’t write off the Bat popping up on The CW at some point. In fact, it might be sooner rather than later, and if it does indeed happen, he might be portrayed as a villain.

Or at least, that’s if Oliver Queen himself, Stephen Amell, gets his way. Speaking at Awesome Con this weekend, the actor said that while he’s interested in having the Caped Crusader show up in the Arrowverse, he wouldn’t necessarily want to see his character team up with the Bat. Instead, Amell wants Oliver to go up against the Dark Knight, and have Bruce Wayne be portrayed as a villain.

Given that Arrow has a proud history of making good on DC characters it name-drops, we’re pretty optimistic about the chances of having Batman show up one day. Maybe not soon, but we can definitely see it happening at some point. Realistically, though, it probably wouldn’t be in a villainous capacity. Or at least, not in the traditional sense of the word.

Perhaps Bruce would be more of a jaded crime fighter than Oliver and use different, opposing methods to clean up the streets. But we don’t see him being an out and out antagonist. Instead, the two billionaires would probably just butt heads for a bit before eventually teaming up.

Anyways, chalk this all up as speculation for now, as at the moment, there’s no confirmation that Batman will appear on Arrow or any other CW series. But if it does happen, tell us, how would you like to see the iconic DC hero portrayed? Sound off below and let us know!

The CW’s crop of Arrowverse shows – ArrowThe FlashSupergirl and Legends of Tomorrow – are all gearing up for their finales, with April to June bringing about the end of the beloved DC TV series. And though it’s widely expected that each one will return in the fall, that’s not guaranteed just yet. The network still hasn’t handed out renewals and some folks are starting to wonder if there’s a reason to worry.

Well, according to Deadline at least, there isn’t. The outlet recently weighed in on the chances of Oliver Queen, Barry Allen and the rest of the gang sticking around for more after their current runs are complete, and noted that The CW “will likely renew all returning series on its fall schedule.” Furthermore, they also say that Black Lightning – which is not part of the Arrowverse but also kinda is – “looks like a sure bet for renewal.”

We should make clear that this doesn’t mean it’s a 100% guarantee that each show will return, but Deadline’s usually pretty accurate in their assessments with this type of stuff. Besides, why wouldn’t The CW renew their various Arrowverse programs?

They do well for the network in terms of ratings and each one has a pretty sizeable fanbase of devoted and loyal viewers. Not to mention that there are still a lot of exciting developments on the horizon – like Matt Ryan joining Legends as a regular – and much story left to tell. In other words, at this point, we’d be pretty shocked if ArrowThe FlashSupergirl and/or Legends of Tomorrow got the axe.

We’ll be sure to let you know once The CW makes things official, but in the meantime, tell us, what are you hoping to see from the Arrowverse next year? Take to the usual place and sound off!
