In this edition of DC Round-Up, Arrow’s Speedy nixes Harley Quinn. There are tidbits on DC’s Legends Of Tomorrow, two casting calls for Gotham, Suicide Squad set videos, and the first Batkid Begins trailer.


According to GreenArrowTV, Arrow actress Willa Holland (Thea) talked about the initial presence of Harley Quinn on the show at the recent MCM Expo in London…

“Pertaining to all the movies that are being made and stuff like that in the comic book world, it’s also taken a side away from the TV shows,” said Holland. “Because we had the Suicide Squad and these things inside of it, ARGUS. We were going really heavily into that for a minute. And then, something must have come down from DC or some higher-up above that said ‘No, you must cease and desist because we’re going to make it into a movie and we can’t have anyone spoil that idea.’ We did get to see that little pigtail and the ARGUS uniform and the little treat of a Harley Quinn, and then it just got ripped away. If we could actually have Harley Quinn on the show, that would be amazing, but it’s never gonna happen,” she said.


In an interview with Comic Book Resources, Grant Gustin discussed crossovers for the DC’s ‘Legends Of Tomorrow’ actors in the combined CW DCU…

“Like, I’m on ‘Flash,’ but as far as a lot of those other characters are concerned, they’re just on three TV shows at one time, which is really cool,” said Gustin. “Wentworth [Miller, who plays Captain Cold] and Dominic [Purcell, who plays Heat Wave] are on ‘Legends,’ but they’ll be on ‘Arrow’ and ‘Flash,’ too. It’s like a revolving door for all three shows.”

TVLine got a little bit more scoop from the new series’ stars…

Hey TVLine! I want some DC Comics TV scoop, please! Arrow, The Flash, Gotham, Supergirl, Legends of Tomorrow…. Give me all you got! –Keith
…Turning to DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, the cast was hard-pressed to elaborate on the midseason CW drama, seeing as no one had seen a script for the pilot yet. (They only filmed a trailer for this month’s Upfronts.) That said, Brandon Routh allowed that I made “a pretty good guess” that Ray/The Atom’s exploded body has been reconstituted using miniaturization-capable nanites; Ciara Renee said that the origin of her winged hero, Kendra Saunders, will be “melding some [Hawkgirl origin stories] together”; and Franz Drameh was super-mum on what powers high school jock Jay Jackson (MIA from the trailer) might bring to the table” – though the actor himself “was in the London Youth Circus for a little while.” Hmm.


TVLine also got some Gotham casting news for Keith…

What I’ve got is… Fox’s Gotham casting for Season 2 a “male DC Villain” described as “intelligent, cultured and highly articulate,” “extremely attractive, both seductive and threatening,” as well as a female DC Villain in her mid- to late 20s — “a sexy knock-out.” So get speculating!


io9 reported set pictures and video of the Batmobile chasing a car with The Joker and Harley Quinn inside during the filming of Suicide Squad.


Bleeding Cool provided the press release and trailer for the Batkid Begins documentary…

One child. One wish. Millions touched. Who would have thought a 5-year-old boy who fought leukemia would transform a city and a nation for a day? No one. Not his family. Not his friends. Not the thousands of volunteers who came from near and far to help make his wish come true. But it did.

Batkid Begins is a documentary that takes you back to November 15th, 2013, the day San Francisco turned into Gotham City and more than a billion people took to social media to cheer on Miles Scott as he became Batkid and fought villains like the Joker and the Riddler.

Batkid Begins opens in select theaters June 26th.
