‘Arrow/Flash’ Spinoff adds Hawkgirl and Rip Hunter to cast

arrowflash

The ‘Arrow’ and ‘Flash’ spinoff show in the works is gaining considerable momentum in it’s development. Announced via CBR, The CW show has cast two more roles of it’s previously 3 described new characters, and it’s paid off for some internet theorists. Broadway actor Ciara Renée has been cast in the role of Kendra Sunders, AKA Hawkgirl. Later on, CBR revealed Doctor Who alum Arthur Darvill was cast as enigmatic time-traveller Rip Hunter.

It seems like we’ll be expanding the previously ‘no powers’ universe of Arrow, to great extent if we’re using characters like these. As previously stated, Rip Hunter is a time-traveller, which is a concept recently used in the TV universe. Hawkgirl, however is “a young woman who is just beginning to learn that she has been repeatedly reincarnated over the centuries”. This will certainly add a mystical element to the show, and hopefully they’ll be able to handle this diversity.

The spinoff show will also be starring Brandon Routh as The Atom, Wentworth Miller as Captain Cold, Dominic Purcell as Heatwave, Victor Garber as Martin Stein, and Caity Lotz as a presumably Canary type character, following her ‘death’ on Arrow. It will most likely debut midseason next year, being outside the current pilot cycle, and will be helmed by Andrew Kreidberg, Marc Guggenheim, and Greg Berlanti.

Controversial Coverbatgirl41joker

This depiction has sparked a huge debate amongst comic readers, with criticism for highlighting one of the darkest moments in Batgirl’s history, made especially worse with the recent revamping of the series to attract younger viewers.
DC has since decided not to publish the variant, at the request of the artist Rafael Albuquerque, who said in a statement, “My intention was…

The Bigger Bang #4 Review

19.3-1

Written by D.J. Kirkbride, Art by Vassillis Gogtzilas

The modern-age space opera that is The Bigger Bang concludes with this issue, and what a way to finish! Kirkbride and Gogtzilas pull out all stops for this one, ramping up the emotional and physical factors to an all-new high. It’s quite sad that one of the best miniseries of this and last year has not garnered much attention, but it has happily said its piece, and tied up all loose ends. It could’ve ended a lot worse, but thanks to the helmings of the creative team, issue #4 is just as good as the rest.
