As viewers gear up for the fall 2017 television season, fans are eager to reunite with their favorite superheroes and learn how they will overcome the challenges they faced in their respective season finales. Now, Entertainment Weekly has unveiled new details on what fans can expect from the upcoming seasons of Supergirl, The Flash, Arrow, and Gotham.
Supergirl executive producer Andrew Kreisberg revealed that Kara and Alex Danvers will play a key role in the upcoming “Arrowverse” crossover event:
“Kara and Alex are at the center of it through all four hours. One of the things we’ve been doing a lot this season is getting back to season 1 and really making it Danvers sisters-centric, so a lot of what’s going on this season is Kara and Alex doing things in tandem, and the crossover won’t be any different.”
With each member of team Arrow being matched with their own antagonist this season, such as Black Canary and Black Siren, actor Stephen Amell hinted at what fans can expect from season six adversary Vigilante:
“I know who he is. I’m not going to tell you who he is, but I will tell you Vigilante is a villain, if you want to call him that, for a member of the team as well.”
The Flash executive producer Andrew Kreisberg also confirmed that Barry and Iris will be getting married this season, but that whether or not they stay married is the real question:
“They are finally going to get married this season and then it’s going to be: Can they stay married with everything that’s coming up against them?”
Gotham star Ben McKenzie also offered fans a preview of what they can expect when Scarecrow makes his debut in episode two of the season:
“People have to face their own worst fears and end up sort of embodying them and living through their own nightmares. It’s a little nightmarish. It has a fright movie feel to it. It’s fun.”

Heroes Who Should Get Their Own CW Arrowverse Shows
This past week marked the season finales for the core DC CW shows from the Arrowverse. Legends of Tomorrow ended a little bit earlier than Supergirl, The Flash, and Arrow did, but all of the finales were great. They each successfully concluded the seasons and helped set things in motion for their upcoming seasons of the show. Supergirl teased a potential new villain, while The Flash, Arrow, and Legends of Tomorrow left us off with cliffhangers that will hopefully be resolved early next year.
While each of the DC CW shows were good, this season of Arrow was great! We here at Heroic Hollywood even gave an argument that this season of Arrow was better than this season of The Flash, due to how great this season for Oliver and the other Star City vigilantes were this year. Not only did the show deliver a compelling storyline, great choreographed action, and probably one of the best villains the CW produced (Prometheus), it also marked the return of Slade Wilson/Deathstroke (arguably the second best villain of Arrow), who has been missing since season two. His return at the end of “Missing” made fans excited for his return. Recently actor Manu Bennett has been campaigning for a Deathstroke spin-off within the Arrowverse. The sometimes good, sometimes bad guy was a great presence earlier in Arrow and the character was one of the highlights of the past seasons. It would be interesting to see his backstory if possible, as well as what happens after he helped Oliver and Team Arrow on Lian Yu.
With that said, there are still plenty of characters who could get their own show within the DC universe. The DC CW universe started with Arrow and has quickly spun off into a wide range of shows, each able to stand on their own, each interconnected as well. Because of this, they have created their own coherent cinematic universe. The CW has been very successful with their DC shows as well. They have almost run out of days of the week to have their shows on, and with such a high volume of characters to work with, there’s a great deal of DC characters who could get their own spin-off shows. Next fall we will see Black Lightning (although it’s stated not to be a part of the Arrowverse… yet), so the sky’s the limit for what they can do. Here are a few ideas for spin-offs for the Arrowverse.
