What’s Next For “Arrow,” “Flash,” “Legends”?


With The CW’s “Arrow” wrapping up its third season last night and the first season of “The Flash” coming to a close next week, questions were asked at today’s upfront presentation for the network regarding where both shows – and the freshly announced third series “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow” – will go next season.

The finale hinted at next season’s main antagonist – Damien Darhk, a former League of Assassin’s member and nemesis of the old Ra’s (Matt Nable). Whomever will play the role has not been announced yet.

The producers are trying to get Colton Haynes (Roy Harper) and Matt Nable (old Ra’s al Ghul) to make guest appearances next season, the latter in flashbacks most likely. The main cast are all expected back, including David Ramsey’s Diggle despite his character’s falling out with the team.

Onto “The Flash” and this week’s episode included a mention of a test pilot that disappeared from the abandoned Ferris Air facility – leading to the suggestion that “Green Lantern” could eventually be making an appearance as part of this small screen DC universe. The producers have not commented on the possibility though.

Then of course there’s “Legends of Tomorrow” and the big question hanging over that – how does actress Caity Lotz return to this universe considering her Sara Lance/Canary character died early in the third season of “Arrow”.

A trailer for the show that screened at the upfront presentation has revealed the truth – Sara Lance will be brought back to life through the use of The Lazarus Pit and will become the ‘White Canary’.

Speaking to EW, Lotz says: “There’s going to be some differences. There’s going to be some repercussions [from] whatever happened and it’s definitely going to make a difference in how she is. I’m really looking forward to it. The stuff they were telling me about it and where they’re going to go with the character is exciting.”
