Furthermore, E! got a tidbit from star Stephen Amell…
Mike N.: Give up all the Arrow scoop you’ve got!
The new season’s secrets are being kept so secretive that even Stephen Amell insists he has no idea what’s ahead. “I know that we tend to follow a pretty typical timeline, so we’ll be months later,” he predicts. But aside from that, “I don’t know anything. I just know that at the beginning of the season, like with all seasons, I will be running.” Better get on that treadmill now, sir!
DC’s Legends of Tomorrow star Victor Garber spoke to The Hollywood Reporter about Firestorm…
“Robbie and I will be joined on the first episode of the [next] season of The Flash, and then we’ll see what happens,” Garber said. Amell will not joining CW’s Legends of Tomorrow universe as a series regular, though he’s expected to make an appearance.
Fans have questioned how Amell would remain on The Flash while Garber would move to Legends of Tomorrow, given that their characters operate as a unit.
All will be explained by upcoming episodes of Arrow and The Flash, Garber assured, which set up the spin-off Legends of Tomorrow, with time-traveling rogue Rip Hunter, played by Arthur Darvill, assembling a dysfunctional family of heroes and villains to battle the immortal villain Vandal Savage…
