In this edition of DC Round-Up, there are legendary synopses and more.
TVLine got scoop about how Damien Darhk initially underestimates Oliver on Arrow…
With Arrow‘s Oliver Queen running for mayor — and knowing the unfortunate history of mayoral demise in Star City — how will Damien Darhk react to a new player on the field? –Tabitha
Showrunner Wendy Mericle says that Oliver’s candidacy “is not going to sit well with [Darhk],” at all. “He has a history of not wanting anybody taking over that position.” even if it’s “someone he quite frankly doesn’t take as a serious threat.” In fact, it’s Oliver’s unassuming public facade that Damien Darhk “loves it at first,” Neal McDonough says, “because he thinks he can use him as his pawn. We then find out rather quickly that that pawn is not for sale, which certainly sets [Damien] off and makes [him] do some really horribly, dark things.”
Entertainment Weekly found out fans will get more of Earth-Two on The Flash…
Will we see more doppelgängers from Earth-Two soon on The Flash? — Hank
I’m getting the feeling that the second half of the season will delve into that more. “It sounds like we’re going to be making an Earth-Two trip in the future at some point this season,” Grant Gustin says. “I don’t know which characters are going to be going. I’m pretty sure Barry will be one of them. I don’t know if we’re going to see his doppelgänger when we go over there. I’d imagine we would.” While Jesse L. Martin hasn’t played his doppelgänger yet, he has heard good things about what could potentially go down. “Earth-Two Joe might have a little musical element to him,” Martin says.
Comic Book Resources has obtained the episode synopses for the Arrow/Flash crossover that launches DC’s Legends of Tomorrow…
The first half of the crossover takes place on The Flash with an episode titled “Legends of Today.” The spoiler-filled description is as follows:
In its second major crossover event with “Arrow,” Vandal Savage (guest star Casper Crump) arrives in Central City and sets his sights on Kendra Saunders (guest star Ciara Renée). After Vandal attacks Kendra and Cisco, they turn to Barry for help. Realizing how dangerous Vandal is, Barry takes Kendra to Star City and asks Oliver and team to hide her until he can figure out how to stop Vandal. However, things quickly go from bad to worse when a man with wings AKA Hawkman (guest star Falk Hentschel) shows up and flies off with Kendra. Meanwhile, Harrison develops a serum to make Barry run faster and asks Jay (guest star Teddy Sears) to test it out.
Arrow’s half of the crossover is titled “Legends of Yesterday,” and has the following synopsis:
Oliver and Barry Allen take Kendra Saunders and Carter Hall to a remote location to keep them hidden from Vandal Savage while they figure out how to defeat him. Malcolm arranges a meeting between Vandal, Green Arrow and The Flash that doesn’t go as planned. Meanwhile, Felicity, Thea, Diggle and Laurel work with Team Flash to come up with a weapon powerful enough to destroy Vandal Savage.
Entertainment Weekly teased some clarification on Supergirl…
Will we find out how Kara got free of the Phantom Zone on Supergirl? — Elizabeth
Yes, but you’ll have to be patient. “We will get into how and why Kara’s pod and Fort Rozz escaped the Phantom Zone … just not yet,” EP Andrew Kreisberg says. “We’re saving that surprise for later. But we know what happened and it’s pretty cool. I promise!”
According to The Hollywood Reporter, David Leslie Johnson has been hired to write Aquaman. James Wan is developing and on board to direct the title, which has Jason Momoa attached to star as King Atlantis for the movie, which is swimming towards a 2018 release. What is unclear is the extent of Johnson’s involvement. The project was being developed on dual tracks with writers Will Beall and Kurt Johnstad penning separate scripts. Johnson, whose early breaks included a stint as Frank Darabont’s assistant, is a Warners’ favorite having worked on the studio’s Wrath of the Titans and Red Riding Hood.
