DC Round-Up: Arrow, Gotham, Supergirl

There’s an Arrow Mom, a Gotham Firefly, a Supergirl Son, and more.

In this edition of DC Round-Up, there’s an Arrow Mom, a Gotham Firefly, a Supergirl Son, and more.

In an interview with Collider, Arrow Executive Producer Wendy Mericle discussed the new addition to the cast…

What can you say about Mr. Terrific and his presence, this season?

MERICLE: Mr. Terrific, or Curtis Holt, is coming, and will be played by Echo Kellum. He’s just a genius. I don’t think we’ll see him morph into Mr. Terrific this season, but he’s somebody who brings a different tone and element, more in keeping with the lightness that we’re bringing into this season. He also is one of our only other LGBT characters, and we’re excited to have that on the show to explore those things, particularly through the prism of that character and with his relationship to Felicity and the team.

In addition to the newbie, a fan favorite will be returning. According to TVLine, Charlotte Ross will reprise her role as Donna Smoak in the sixth episode of Season 4.

According to TVLine, Gotham is going to put a gender-bending twist on yet another DC villain. relative newcomer Michelle Veintimilla will play the infamous firestarter Firefly— and her human alter ego Bridgit Pike — in two late fall episodes…

Here’s the official character description: Enslaved by her brothers, a notorious gang of arsonists, Bridgit Pike is forced into the family business. When she catches the eye of Selina Kyle, the young Cat Woman and the soon-to-be-Firefly team up to put Bridgit’s firestarting skills to good use. But after a deadly encounter with the Pike Brothers, the meek Cinderella is transformed into a vengeful supervillain, hell bent on destroying those who have wronged her.

In an interview with KSiteTV, Supergirl  Executive Producer Andrew Kreisberg (Arrow, The Flash) spoke about Lucy Lane…

What can you say about Lois Lane’s sister Lucy (Jenna Dewan-Tatum) coming on to the show? Is she on for the long term?

Yeah. She’s going to be heavily recurring. She had been in a relationship with James Olsen, and when he left Metropolis, he left her, and she’s coming back to fight for her man. But what’s really interesting about it — and one of the things we’re very conscious of, and why we’re so excited to get Jenna — is that we’ve seen shows where that “other woman” comes and the audiences so despises her… you don’t even understand why the male actor would like her. And Jenna is so likable and so winning and so personable, and is so kind to Kara, that part of you is sort of rooting for Lucy, too. She also ultimately ends up defending Supergirl against General Lane. So, Lucy’s kind of a hero in her own right.

Finally, according to TVLine, Supergirl has cast Pan star Levi Miller as Carter Grant, the son of Calista Flockhart’s Cat Grant…

Miller is set to make his Supergirl debut in Episode 4. Per the official character description, 12-year-old Carter is “sensitive and shy” and “couldn’t be more different from his mom.” As Melissa Benoist’s Kara babysits her boss’s son and gets to know him better, “Carter finally opens up to her — revealing his true feelings for Supergirl.”
