In this edition of DC Round-Up, there’s word on the future of Arrow’s Arsenal, a possible title for the Arrow/The Flash spin-off, news on Gotham toys, and a trailer for Batman v Superman.


In an interview with BuzzFeed News, Arrow’s executive producers, discussed Roy Harper/Colton Haynes status on the show…

Although, the executive producers were quick to add that Arrow fans haven’t seen the last of Roy as he’ll appear in one more episode this season and could pop up on any of the shows that are part of Warner Bros’ ever-expanding TV empire (like The Flash or a new superhero series in development, starring Brandon Routh and Caity Lotz from Arrow and Wentworth Miller and Victor Garber from The Flash). “He said he wanted to be able to come back at any time and we felt the same way,” Berlanti said.

In another interview with Entertainment Tonight, executive producer Marc Guggenheim elaborated…

Oliver’s former sidekick will be back in the May 6 episode, “This Is Your Sword,” to wrap up some unfinished business.

“The thing we felt we owed the audience more than anything was some closure with Thea because [of] the circumstances under which Thea is in,” executive producer Marc Guggenheim said of Wednesday’s installment. “Certainly we owed the audience some closure for this three season-long love story between these two characters.”

According to the same interview, when Roy does return, Team Arrow will have a new HQ…

Thanks to the police raid (R.I.P. fern), Team Arrow’s lair as we know it is gone – “kiboshed,” as Guggenheim puts it. Forced to find another location to congregate and plan, they turn to a familiar place to call Arrow HQ for the rest of the season: Palmer Technologies, formerly Queen Consolidated.

“We had to expand Ray’s workshop to allow scenes with a huge group of people rather than just Ray and Felicity,” Guggenheim said, adding that they did “set redesign and set redecoration” to make it work. That being said, he revealed that the old lair will get an encore appearance in the April 29 episode, titled “Al-Sahim.”


According to GreenArrowTV and SpoilerTV, both John Wesley Shipp and David Ramsey have said at conventions that the title of the Arrow/The Flash spin-off was Legends. In a passing reference, Variety implied the title was Legends of Tomorrow

With MipTV wrapped, the focus now shifts to the L.A. Screenings in May. Big product suppliers were using MipTV to talk up L.A. Screenings bows that include, in terms of shows attracting attention for WBITVD, “Supergirl” for CBS, “Blindspot” for NBC, “Legends of Tomorrow” for CW, and also “The Curse of the Fuentes Women,” for NBC.


According to TV Insider, Gotham toys are coming soon…

Jim Gordon once declared, “Everyone has a Cobblepot.” Now that can include fans of the Fox drama: Diamond Select Toys will debut its new line of Gotham action figures at this summer’s Comic-Con International in San Diego. The collection features seven-inch versions of Ben McKenzie’s Gordon, Robin Lord Taylor’s Oswald Cobblepot/Penguin, and Camren Bicondova’s Selina Kyle/future Catwoman. All three figures come with character-specific play sets: an alleyway for Gordon, a pier for Cobblepot, and a fire escape for Kyle. (The list price for the figures, available this fall, is $24.99 each. Go to comicshoplocator.com to find retailers.)


The official teaser trailer for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice has been released on the movie’s official Facebook page.
