In this edition of DC Round-Up, Arrow mutes the death knell. The Flash boss teases the future for the Trickster and the Reverse-Flash. iZombie’s boy toy gets a plot line. Ben Afleck teases a cool cameo in Batman v Superman:Dawn of Justice.


According to TVLine, the bell might not be tolling on Arrow after all…

Is someone dying in the “Broken Arrow” episode of Arrow? If so, any clues? –Kyle

Ah yes, the infamous “65th episode” that both Stephen Amell and Colton Haynes tweetbooked ominous/sad things about. Since then, Haynes has clarified, “I don’t think it’s as serious as everyone took it. It was just a very emotional scene” that he was commenting on. Meaning, there might (might) not be any significant deaths. “We will be saying goodbye to people,” Haynes allows, “but I think it was just kind of blown out of proportion.”


According to TVLine, the original Trickster, James Jesse, will return after his memorable reintroduction on The Flash

As for whether the Trickster will return, teamed with the fellow Rogues, “that is the plan,” Kreisberg confirms, expressing his excitement at the idea of “Wentworth Miller and Mark in a scene together and watching the dichotomy of them.”

The executive producer also clarified to TVLine the nature of the twisted relationship between Eobard Thawne and Dr. Harrison Wells…

“It’s future tech. We’re calling it genetic camouflage,” executive producer Andrew Kreisberg explains. “He basically rewrote his DNA to match Wells’.”

But what of the actual doc, who appeared to be decayed after the incident? “What happened to Harrison Wells’ real body and what really happened that night and all these things are going to start coming out,” the EP says. “What happened in [Episode] 15, not all of it went away as people are going to find out soon.”

Andrew Kreisberg also spoke about where the line between Wells and Thawne blurs…

Beyond taking on Wells’ physical identity, Letscher’s Eobard also took a little something else from Cavanagh’s character, who has often talked about his late wife. “One of the things that kind of bled through was Wells’ love for Tess that Thawne absorbed when he absorbed his body,” Kreisberg reveals, so the doc isn’t completely gone.


According to TVLine, iZombie’s Major will be getting more to do…

Two weeks in, I must ask: Will iZombie’s Robert Buckley get more to do than stand around looking beautiful? –Ellie

Rest assured, Liv’s ex-fiance has some Major drama in his not-too-distant future. “He very quickly gets his own storyline,” executive producer Rob Thomas tells us. “He works at a home for runaway teenagers [as] a social worker, and those teenagers start going missing off the streets of Seattle. As he looks into that, he stumbles into a zombie universe.”


According to IGN, U.S. Senate hearings can also serve as a source for news on Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. BvS star Ben Affleck appeared before the Senate Appropriations Subcommittee on Diplomacy and National Security on Thursday to discuss foreign aid to Eastern Congo (the Oscar winner founded the Eastern Congo Initiative).During his opening remarks to the panel, Affleck revealed that committee member Senator Patrick Leahy (D – Vermont) appears in Batman v Superman.
