DC Comics wants to own TV entertainment. And from what I have seen from them this far, I would have to agree. Even with the doubts I have about a Batman-less crime drama set in Gotham City, there is enough hope in two shows that I am actually really looking forward to, The Flash and Constantine.
Arrow returns for its third season this fall, and I am really looking forward to seeing what direction they take after last year’s shocking events. So as we get closer to the premier months, lets take a look and see what’s going on with the shows!
Another big name character has been cast! DC Comics has announced that Ronnie Raymond, aka half of Firestorm, will be making his first appearance. Ronnie will be played by Robbie Amell, who is actually Arrow’s Stephen Amell’s cousin! Being a superhero is all in the family. Don’t tell Batman.

Speaking of Batman, oh wait he’s not in this show. Here’s a new trailer..
Or is he… I have a theory about what DC is doing on TV. But I have a fear of talking about it due to their wonderful track record. SO I wonder if Bruce Wayne only plays a major part in the Pilot, or does the show follow his story as well.
Check out the latest featurette called “The Worlds of Gotham“, featuring an intro from showrunner Bruno Heller!
The opening episode to the third season will be called the calm. Normally there isn’t anything calm about this show, so I’m wondering what this is in reference to. But here’s the proof thanks to Marc Guggenheim’s Twitter!

Here’s a look at the first official season 3 synopsis via The CW!
[box_light]In the aftermath of this victory, Season Three opens with Arrow now a hero to the citizens of Starling. Crime is down, people feel safer, and Captain Lance even calls off the Anti-Vigilante Task Force. Basking in his success, Oliver believes he can finally have a private life and asks Felicity out on a date. But the second Oliver takes his eye off the ball, a deadly villain reappears in Starling, forcing Oliver to realize that he can never be Oliver Queen – not as long as the city needs The Arrow.[/box_light]
