DC Round-Up: Arrow, The Flash, Revolution, Wonder Woman, Suicide Squad

In this edition of DC Round-Up, catch up on the CW DCU; get Revolution closure; learn of Wonder Woman’s lost director, and celebrate the start of Suicide Squad.

Marc Guggenheim has tweeted the telling title of the Arrow season finale…


Executive Andrew Kreisberg also dealt with Ra’s al Ghul continuity at WonderCon according to Deadline

“Most of us comic-book fans, we call him ‘Raysh’, not ‘Rahs’” he told the crowd.  But, he said, director Christopher Nolan‘s decision to pronounce the name as “Rahs” in Batman Begins led to confusion among casual fans. Therefore, “what we decided is that if you’re [allied with the character], you call him ‘Raysh’, and if not, you call him ‘Rahs.’”

In the same Deadline coverage of the WonderCon Panel, Kreisberg teased season two of The Flash

As for season 2, Kreisberg was a little less circumspect than at PaleyFest two weeks back. Teasing that “we’ve got one thing that hopefully, people will lose their minds for,” he discussed in broad strokes that the show’s characters will get glimpses into alternate timelines, further stoking speculation that the intent is to adapt DC Comic’s Flashpoint Crisis in some fashion.

He also said the show intends to add classic The Flash villains Mirror Master and Dr. Alchemy to its rogues gallery, and once again hinted that the show plans to introduce Wally West, in the comics a protege and eventual successor to Barry Allen, at some point.

According to ComicBook.Com, Arrow star Stephen Amell teased the spin-off…

“I would imagine that I will be appearing on all three shows,” said Amell during a panel at Fan Expo Canada. “I would imagine that we will be sprinkling characters in. I know that there’s a plan for one character who originated on Arrow and is not one of the main characters on the new spinoff to sort of hover between all three shows and that will be their job, so to speak. So you’ll see a lot of interconnectivity next year.”

Also, according to Comic Book Resources, also talked about how characters from The Flash will fit into the spin-off…

A couple of the Rogues — Captain Cold and Heat Wave — are planned to appear in the pending spinoff series. Does that factor into the “Flash” storyline as planned?

Yes, entirely. I think what you’ll see on both shows is we’ll be building up to the spinoff. As much as “Flash” and “Arrow” are connected, “Flash” and “Arrow” and the new show are going to be interconnected, so you’ll be seeing the evolution of some of these characters. And obviously, that was part of the decision to have Snart find out Barry’s identity, because we knew the trajectory that those characters would be going on and how they’d be playing off of each other. And there’s some great scenes coming up between Wentworth [Miller] and Grant [Gustin] in episode 22 which is further evidence of Snart’s changing character and where we’ll find him in the new show.

TVLine has learned that NBC’s postapocalyptic drama, which was powered down almost a year ago, after two seasons, will return to finish its story in the form of a four-chapter digital comic book. The series’ entire creative team — including executive producers Eric Kripke, J.J. Abrams, Bryan Burk, Rockne S. O’Bannon and Jon Favreau — regrouped to create the digital comic with DC Comics. Revolution writers David Reed and Ryan Parrott penned the four chapters, after breaking the story with the rest of the team.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Michelle MacLaren has dropped out of directing Wonder Woman due to what the parties involved are calling creative differences. “Given creative differences, Warner Bros. and Michelle MacLaren have decided not to move forward with plans to develop and direct Wonder Woman together,” the studio said in a statement.

According to Variety, the new director has already been found. Patty Jenkins, director of the Oscar-winning Charlize Theron vehicle Monster, will take over the reins of the project.

Following weeks of teasing on social media, director David Ayer has announced the official start of filming on Warner Bros.’ “Suicide Squad,” with a photo posted on Twitter…
