DC Round-Up: Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl

There’s Supergirl casting and more.

In the edition of DC Round-Up, there’s Supergirl casting and more.

TVLine had scoop on Arrow’s cliff-hanger…

Question: When will we learn who is in the grave from the Arrow season premiere? —Kyle

Ausiello: Though the producers are being purposefully vague about the timing of that reveal, here’s something to at least whet your whistle. Co-showrunner Wendy Mericle told Matt Mitovich, “There might be” additional flash-forwards “here and there… right around midseason,” that certainly will add to the “Who dies?” mystery. “We’re definitely toying with that,” the EP added, “and when and if we do decide to do that, it will reveal even more pertinent information about not who’s going to be in the grave but certainly where our characters are when that [death] happens.”

Entertainment Weekly had this to add about one of the potential occupants of the grave…

What does the future look like for one or all of my favorite Arrow characters: Felicity, Oliver and Diggle? — Steph

I choose Diggle, specifically about how he’s handling the new information Damien Darhk provided about his brother’s death. “Diggle’s really dealing with the grief and sense of loss,” EP Wendie Mericle says. “He’s grieving two losses, really — the idea of who his brother was and confirmation of why his brother was murdered. The truth is, he knows that his brother was involved in this bad, shady stuff, but he doesn’t know how or when or why. He doesn’t know Andy’s point of view. He’s never heard Andy’s side of the story.” With that said, “We’ll definitely be seeing Andy coming up in future episodes and we’ll get some pretty shocking answers about what happened to him,” Mericle promises. Bonus: Since Mama Smoak is returning next week, I thought I’d also share this tidbit: “We’ll find out in future episodes that she’s going to be having a romantic relationship with somebody on the show,” Mericle says. “It’s going to be fun.”

Entertainment Weekly learned that not everyone would be giving Harry the cold shoulder on The Flash

Anything about Harry or his daughter on The Flash and whether he’ll be bonding with any of the team? — Pang

As we saw last week, the team is understandably hesitant to trust Harry, but he will find at least one ally. “The person with whom he ironically finds the most common ground with is Caitlin,” EP Andrew Kreisberg says. “There’s a lot of stuff in upcoming episodes where there’s a lot of hurt feelings, obviously on Barry’s part, Joe’s part and Cisco’s part. We collectively decided that Caitlin would be the one who was able to — because Caitlin is more mature that everyone else there — both [see] the necessity for including him in things, and is also the one who has grown up enough that she can look past it and see that making a connection with him has value.”

Entertainment Weekly got scoop on tension between Supergirl and the DEO…

Any spoilers you can tell us about Supergirl? — Rocky

Kara won’t just use her powers to keep aliens in line. “In episode 3, Reactron, who’s a Superman villain, shows up in town, and Kara says to the DEO, ‘How are we going to get him?’ ” executive producer Andrew Kreisberg says. “They say, ‘Well, we’re not. We find aliens. We’re not going to expose this covert government agency for a human villain. Let the police handle it, or call Superman.’ By the end of that episode, Kara has turned the DEO around. They have all of these amazing resources and they could be doing more with it.”

Additionally, The Mary Sue reported that Emma Caulfield, Anya, from Buffy the Vampire Slayer, is coming to National City. Here’s the official description of the character…

After her father’s violent murder, Cameron Chase decided to dedicate her life to law enforcement. Now a stern, no holds barred FBI agent, Chase’s weapons of choice are manipulation and manpower. With little sympathy, and plenty of suspicions, she pursues her targets with ruthless determination.

Finally, TVLine reported that Tawny Cypress, of Heroes fame, has been cast as Miranda Crane, a senator peddling her anti-alien beliefs to garner votes. Senator Crane finds herself on the other side of the issue when her visit to National City is interrupted by an alien attack, forcing her to possibly accept help from an extraterrestrial — Supergirl.
