DC Round-Up provides insight, odds, and ends on everything but Lucifer.

As Comic-Con approaches, DC Round-Up provides insight, odds, and ends on everything but Lucifer.

DCAllAccess caught up with the cast of Arrow at the CW Upfronts for season 4 appetizers…

TVLine got scoop on yet another casting call for The Flash

I’m dying for some Arrow or Flash scoop! –Matthew

Arrow is seeking an Iris West type… No, just kidding. (Too soon?) The Flash, however – in addition to Wendy – is casting the season-long role of a classically handsome, square-jawed hero in his 30s to early 40s, a slightly cynical man “with an edge.” The casting call lists the character as “John Clark,” which is obviously fake/a nod to the DC Comics letterer. Though I must wonder if one of Clark’s works hints at the character being introduced….

Half of Firestorm Robbie Amell played coy with MovieWeb about his involvement in DC’s Legends of Tomorrow

All of those questions will be answered shortly, but I can’t actually tell you anything about it. What I can tell you is I’m going back to shoot more episodes of The Flash in July.

He elaborated a very little bit on The Flash

I haven’t gotten any scripts yet, but it picks up immediately where the finale left off, because it was such a big cliffhanger, you have to. I don’t know what I’d like to see. The nice thing about the finale was getting to actually play Ronnie. You saw Ronnie in my first episode, and then I was this schizophrenic, frightened man, and then I was trying to figure things out with my other half, and I finally got to kind of play Ronnie in the finale. I was enjoying that character. I’d like to play more with that, and the relationship with Danielle Panabaker’s character Caitlin, but I always have so much fun shooting with Victor, so anything else Victor and I can shoot together would be great.

According to DCLegendsTV, Actress Ciara Renée has been keeping fans updated about her Hawkgirl progress on her Instagram feed. There’s a picture of Renée presumably being fitted for her Hawkgirl helmet and video of her being scanned for CGI sequences. Additionally, Brandon Routh provided pictures of his facial scans for the Atom, which are to be used on the upcoming spin-off.

Finally, IGN spoke with Dominic Purcell about Heat Wave…

Purcell recalled, “I’ve never read a comic book in my life. When I started shooting Heat Wave in Flash, I had no idea who he was and started working it out on the floor. But I kind of stumbled into the right vibe for him and people, the producers, were very happy with what I was doing. That’s basically what gave me the confidence to go even further with him. And now with the new show, I get to basically do whatever the f**k I want, so that’s what I’m going to do!”

Variety has posted a featurette focusing on the look of Gotham by interviewing production designers Doug Kraner and Richard Berg.

Dean Cain reveals his Supergirl character’s profession in an interview with Comic Book Resources

You guest-starred as a villain on “Smallville,” but “Supergirl’s” adoptive father sounds like a more vital component of the new show. Is that fair? Will Fred have a big presence on the series?

That’s going to be up to the producers. I’ll be in it as much as they will have me. I’ll be very happy to show up on that set every day. It’s just a matter of how much Greg Berlanti and the producers want to expand that role as time goes on. He has to be there, because he is her father on Earth. He and Helen Slater are the parents of her sister, as well. We’re scientists, so we’ll be able to interject things here and there. It’s going to be fun. I just don’t know how much they are going to do. There’s nothing set in stone.

TVLine has scoop on a new character on iZombie

Question: I was on the fence initially, but I ended up loving iZombie. Any scoop? —Amy

Ausiello: Odds are good we’ll meet Liv and Evan’s pa in Season 2 (and, yes, despite the age difference they do have the same father). “We have been talking about Season 2 as being the Season of Dads,” series creator Rob Thomas tells TVLine. “We might meet several people’s dads in Season 2, including [Liv and Evan’s]. We kept him intentionally unmentioned because we hadn’t worked out how we wanted to bring him in or what we wanted to do with him… We have a desire to do it, and I think we have a neat backstory on their dad.”
