DC TV News: Arrow, The Flash, Gotham, Supergirl, and Legends of Tomorrow

There was a lot of news revealed surrounding the numerous DC Comics small screen franchises out there. With multiple networks airing these series, some interconnected, there was no shortage of news about the future of Supergirl, Gotham, Arrow, The Flash, and Legends of Tomorrow. Here is a brief rundown of the reveals from each show.

Gotham: Well, it is now confirmed that Cameron Monaghan's character from season one is in fact the small screen version of The Joker. His debut gave us a creepy backstory involving growing up in the same circus as Dick Grayson's parents. Monaghan interrupted the panel and threatened Ben McKenzie (James Gordon) by asking if he has a high pain threshold before being dragged out. Next season is being billed as "Rise of the Villains" and hopefully that ups the quality level of the uneven debut run. Check out Monaghan in character below.

Legends of Tomorrow: The second spin-off from Arrow is being billed by creator Greg Berlanti as an OCEAN'S ELEVEN type show featuring superheroes. The show will premiere mid-season with lead in plots from both The Flash and Arrow. Hawkman was also confirmed as a new character as well.

Supergirl: We brought you a review of the pilot episode but there will be a lot more coming as the season progresses. Actor Peter Facinelli, recently in the cancelled NBC series American Odyssey and of TWILIGHT fame, will join the series as Maxwell Lord. In the comics, Lord is known for helping to form the Justice League International but will start out on Supergirl as a tech billionaire and friend to Calista Flockhart's Cat Grant.

The Flash: Season two has big shoes to fill after the stellar first season and the showrunners are not taking it lightly. The next run of episodes will introduce two new characters to the DC Universe, including Jay Garrick. Garrick was the first comic book version of The Flash but on the series will be a mysterious character who comes to warn Barry Allen about a threat. He will be played by Masters of Sex actor Teddy Sears. We will also be introduced to Patty Spivot, Joe West's new partner and potential love interest for Barry Allen. She will be played by One Tree Hill actress Shantel VanSanten.

Arrow: We learned on Friday that Neal McDonough will join season four as main baddie Damien Darhk, but we will also see the inclusion of Batman villain Anarky as well as Mr. Terrific. The big news was the reveal of Oliver Queen's new costume which is looking closer to Green Arrow than we have ever seen before. Check it out below.

Exciting news for all of these shows. With another day left of Comic Con, our team in San Diego will continue to bring you the big news as it develops.

Gotham's a great show, regardless of the continuity issues it would create if they ever tried to link it into any other DC shows or movies. As much as I'm not sure they need to incorporate 'young Joker' into the show more fully, the guy who played that role in Gotham was excellent and looked creepily perfect. The show as it is, mostly the rise of Penguin and Gordon, has been thoroughly entertaining. Flash and Arrow are both okay and have their moments, but have a dash of 'DC Lite' - Arrow

Hopefully Arrow can pull itself together and Flash can build on their momentum - spinoff series might be fun.

An insult to DC. Really? To each their own...
I'll admit to thinking the show was probably unnecessary when it was first announced, but gave it a chance anyway - it's a really good watch, with some excellent performances and characters.
And yeah to me Flash and Arrow are entertaining enough, but just feel a bit B-List at times.

The new Green Arrow suit looks awesome. Glad they got rid of the old costume. I'm actually looking forward to season 4. Season 1 & 2 were great TV, but with season 3 being so bad I have high hopes that they'll rebound in season 4.

I think Flash in season 2 will knock it out of the park again. I'm hoping in addition to Jay Garrick they also bring in Wally West into the show. But keep him from getting powers until at least mid-season of Season 3.

Legends of Tomorrow. I'm sorry, but I

Legends of Tomorrow. I'm sorry, but I just don't care about this show. I think what's throwing it off for me is the inclusion of Captain Cold. Not that familiar with him in the comic books, but he's usually a straight up villain. So his inclusion seems more like WB liking Wentworth Miller and wanting him in something more than a guest starring role on The Flash.

Supergirl looks alright. I'll definitely check it out. Even if it's not going to tie into Arrow/Flash, they at least acknowledge Superman exists on the show. So it looks like it has some meat to the story.

Gotham, I can't believe it had enough ratings to get renewed.

The Flash, well what more needs to be said? You missed one note, The Flash facebook page confirmed ZOOM is coming [link] . So Zoom is confirmed for S2. That plus Garrick makes this a must see. I hope they continue to build on maybe the most amazing comic debut on tv. Yes I loved Daredevil but the scope of the story they told on Flash was probably the most ambitious first season of a comic show I've ever seen.

The Green Arrow suit looks amazing. S3 kinda sucked now that i've caught up with

The Green Arrow suit looks amazing. S3 kinda sucked now that i've caught up with it all, but I have hope it can rebound. Neil is an amazing character actor. I just Wish Arrow would stop focusing on archers/swordsman villains. He is basically the "Batman" of the tv universe, a master planners and tactician. He should encounter some meta's as well and be able to best them.

Legends I need only say one thing...Vandal Savage!!! So excited for it.

Supergirl, meh I'll give it a shot but I don't expect to like it.

Gotham...this crap is still on?!?!? Who has blackmail material on a fox exec?

I'm excited for The Flash and Arrow but I have no hope for Gotham. It should be canceled already.

Loving the new Green Arrow suit. It's about time it looked more like the iconic comic book.
