In Part 2 of our interview with ARROW and THE FLASH developer/executive producer/show runner Marc Guggenheim, he talks more about those series and CW Seed’s animated VIXEN. AX: Are you involved with the animated VIXEN series for CWSeed.com? MARC GUGGENHEIM: I am, actually, and it’s a great deal of fun, I have to say. I always love working in different mediums, and we’re going to do, basically, an animated spin-off [of ARROW and THE FLASH]. It’s going to center on Vixen, who I came to know as a former member of the Justice League. This is a six-part origin story, […]Read On »

Marc Guggenheim, an executive producer/show runner on the CW’s ARROW, Wednesdays at 9 PM, and its spin-off THE FLASH, Tuesdays at 8 PM, is very happy. Not only have both series been picked up for next season – it will be ARROW’s fourth and THE FLASH’s second – but the network has put together an impressive display of costumes from both D.C. Comics-derived series for the Television Critics Association. THE FLASH, a DC Comics title, was born for television in the generation within episodes of ARROW (itself derived from DC Comics’ GREEN ARROW), introducing super-fast Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) to […]Read On »

Stars:  Stephen Amell, Katie Cassidy, Paul Blackthorne, Colin Donnell, Susanna Thompson, Colin Salmon, Willa Holland, David Ramsey, Emily Bett Rickards, John Barrowman, Manu Bennett Writer:  Drew Z. Greenberg & Wendy Mericle Director: John Behring Network: The CW, airs Wednesday Nights Original Telecast: May 8, 2013 ARROW is normally at its strongest when it operates in shades of grey, but “Darkness on the Edge of Town” gives us a black & white, good vs. evil battle between Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) and Malcolm Merlyn (John Barrowman).  This is not necessarily a bad thing, though, because, while both men are hood-wearing vigilantes […]Read On »

Stars:  Stephen Amell, Katie Cassidy, Paul Blackthorne, Colin Donnell, Susanna Thompson, Colin Salmon, Willa Holland, David Ramsey, Emily Bett Rickards, John Barrowman, Manu Bennett Writer:  Ben Sokolowski & Beth Schwartz Director: Ken Fink Network: The CW, airs Wednesday Nights Original Telecast: April 24, 2013 Despite the high body count, “Home Invasion” is an episode dedicated to romance.  Specifically, it delves deeper into Oliver Queen’s (Stephen Amell’s) romantic feelings for his ex-girlfriend Laurel Lance (Katie Cassidy) and how they’ve been complicated by his secret life as the hooded vigilante, and the fact that his best friend Tommy Merlyn (Colin Donnell) is […]Read On »

Stars:  Stephen Amell, Katie Cassidy, Paul Blackthorne, Colin Donnell, Susanna Thompson, Colin Salmon, Willa Holland, David Ramsey, Emily Bett Rickards, John Barrowman, Manu Bennett Writer:   Bryan Q. Miller & Lindsey Allen Director: Michael Offer Network: The CW, airs Wednesday Nights Original Telecast: April 3, 2013 This week’s episode of ARROW doesn’t bludgeon us with unrelenting bleakness the way last week’s did.  In fact, “Unfinished Business” is a fairly slight episode overall, and most of it doesn’t leave much of an impression.  But one thing it did do quite well is continue the difficult conversation it began earlier about the appropriate […]Read On »
