    Vigilante? Awesome ! Here's to hoping both of these guys have their comic costumes. They'd be great if they just do faithful adaptations.

    I last saw Rick on Reaper and I'm familiar with Josh from his PBS days. Hopefully, this won't be Wildcat over again.

    COOL!. Hope they due justice to Max Allen Collins and Terry Beatty masked crimefighter "Wild Dog".
    Anyway He better be used more efficiently then "Wild Cat" was. They wasted that character.

    Personally, I'm all for adding more LGBT characters to the roster, but why make Mr. Terrific gay? They didn't have to, after all there are plenty of character in the comics who are already gay, like the second Starman, Mikaal/Michael Thomas. There's a good opportunity to explore the lgbt community right there, as well as utilize an underrated character. Or shoot, create a new character.

    I don't mean to sound crude, but for me personally, I find it unnecessary to make the character gay in the show.

    Well, while season 4 was bit more super-y then past seasons, I think putting in Starman would've been pushing it :sweat:.

    I admit to thinking the same at the time it was announced what they were doing with Mr. Terrific, and I also never understood what they were going for by changing his actual name (I guess to separate him from the straight Michael Holt?), but I have to assume they picked Mr. Terrific because he thought they would work well with the story and setting they were going with in season 4, and then decided to add even a bit more diversity by making him gay.

    Which is fair, even if it's not something I would've done (preferring to use a character who's actually LGBT in the comics), and I'm just happy that Curits has generally proven to be as enjoyably and respectfully portrayed character as he has been :).

    Remove the film on comics, that's one thing, but the TV series, is quite another. The difference is that when filming the series, it is necessary to think over all, performed in detail. What this show failed. Although if we talk about it as a TV series for children, it is very good. In the 90s there were many similar series about the characters, and then all admired, but when you remember about them now, you know what they are ridiculous. So the "Arrow" is such a case.

    Like and effects at the site, but looks very funny, all the fights and chases.

    Generally I'm a fan of DC and I love their films, but soap operas, serials with all the very bad situation at Marvel Conversely, films for children, but the series is very good

    When you make a series of comics need to strictly adhere to the canons, or else act like in the 90s but to invent a character based on a real hero, then it works, and so, just disgraced good comic book characters.

    Thank you for your attention, you only good films and serials.

    I wonder what other DC properties would make a great fit for The Arrowverse, Blue Beetle And Booster Gold, Suicide Squad, Young Justice, the Possibilities are endless. Hey We might even see A Shazam and Dr.Fate TV series too.

    A character I never would've thought would be here. It still doesn't seem so long since the Mark Valley series ended.

    Joe Wilson to be played by Liam Hall. And from the announcement it seems as though he's more likely to become Ravager (I) rather than Jericho. This would also make Joe much older than brother Grant (the Deathstroke of 2046).
    I do have to wonder if half-sister Rose might eventually appear.
