Well it certainly looks as if the CW is cornering the market on TV superheroes. God knows the other networks don’t seem to get the whole idea of what constitutes a “superhero TV show.” I mean, where are all the superheroes on “Agents of SHIELD,” or the Batman-less “Gotham”? (It’s a Batman TV show without Batman! Awesome idea, guys.)
The CW, meanwhile, are doubling down on superhero TV, heading into Season 3 of their hit show “Arrow” and partnering it up with “The Flash” TV series.
Up first, here’s your first look at “Arrow” Season 3. The first minute is a wrap-up of Season 2, but the final 90-seconds are from Season 3, including appearances by Colton Haynes in the Arsenal costume, Brandon Routh as Ray Palmer, and Karl Yune as Maseo. The Black Canary still can’t seem to decide if she’s coming or staying, though. Chicks, amirite, guys?
“Arrow” Season 3 returns October 8th.
And here’s one quickie promo for the upcoming “The Flash” TV series, apparently showing that the Flash is one superhero who doesn’t give a hoot about property damage. Very uncool, Flash. Someone’s gonna have to pay for those broken windows, you know.
The show bows October 7th, which means it’ll air the day before “Arrow’s” Season 3 premiere and, I assume, airing on separate days as “Arrow” moving forward. I’m surprise they’re not putting these two shows back-to-back on the same night, frankly. You’d think that was a no-brainer.
