See Colton Haynes as Arsenal in 'Arrow' season 3

Last season on Arrow, Roy Harper was injected with Slade’s Mirakuru serum and had to deal with all of the rage that went with it. But now that Roy is Mirakuru-free, what will season three hold for the wearer of red hoodies? For one thing, another red hoodie.

As comic-book fans know, Roy Harper sometimes goes by another name: Arsenal. And not only can EW confirm that Roy will be joining Team Arrow as a fully fledged member in season three, but here’s an exclusive first look at Colton Haynes, who plays Roy, too—in full Arsenal attire (above).

The Arsenal suit will make its first appearance in the first episode of season three, which returns Oct. 8 on The CW.

'Arrow' producer reveals details of season 3's Big Bad and 'Flash' crossover episode

What’s that? You say you need to know what’s going to happen on this season of Arrow after last season’s absolutely bonkers finale that saw the greatest freighter-based showdown this side of Lost?

EW caught up with Arrow executive producer Andrew Kreisberg—who now has his hands full with The CW’s other new flashy (get it?) superhero show The Flash (now you get it). But since Kreisberg is pulling double duty with the DC Comics heroes, that means he’s got double the scoop to offer.

Perhaps most pressing is the question of which villainous threat Oliver Queen will face this coming season, which picks up six or seven months after the season-two finale. Crime is down and the police aren’t hunting Ollie—but peace never lasts that long in Starling City. Despite last season’s startlingly sinister Slade, this year’s villain will have to up the ante even more. READ FULL STORY

Brandon Routh joins 'Arrow' as The Atom

Brandon Routh is trading in his blue and red tights for another pair of blue and red tights. EW has confirmed that the Superman Returns actor has booked a recurring role in Arrow‘s third season as Ray Palmer, a.k.a. The Atom.

According to TVLine, Ray Palmer, an “unparalleled scientist and inventor,” is Queen Consolidated’s new owner and has mysterious plans for Queen Consolidated’s Applied Sciences Division. He is rumored to be a love interest for Felicity.

In the comics, Ray Palmer/The Atom has the power to alter the size of his body and can shrink down to subatomic levels. This is not the character’s first live-action appearance: John Kassir portrayed the character in the failed 1997 CBS pilot/TV movie Justice League of America. The Atom has also been featured in both the Young Justice and Justice League Unlimited animated series.

The Atom is the second DC Comics superhero to join Arrow in its third season. As was previously reported, Devon Aoki was cast as the classic DC Comics hero Katana.

Arrow premieres on the CW on Wednesday, October 8 at 8 p.m. ET.

Emmy Watch: 'Arrow' stunt coordinator breaks down Arrow vs. Deathstroke, reveals his dream fight sequence

Leading up to the June 20 deadline for Emmy voters to submit nomination ballots, EW.com is featuring interviews with some of the people whose names we hope to hear when nominations are announced on July 10.

When The CW decided to take on a comic book show with Arrow, we never imagined that the stunts would be even half as good as they’ve ended up being. And no fight was more impressive than the long-awaited battle between Arrow and Deathstroke in the season 2 finale. Entertainment Weekly has named it one of the year’s 50 Best TV scenes.

Cutting back and forth between present day and Oliver’s time on the island, this fight added a layer of complexity that we’d never seen on the show before. And that complexity came from a lot of hard work. We chatted with stunt coordinator JJ Makaro to talk about how they created this fight (and what he wants to do next season) below: READ FULL STORY

Season Finale Awards: 'Arrow' stunt team vows to somehow do it even better

When Arrow star Stephen Amell teased the show’s second season finale to EW, he said, “If we can’t win the stunt Emmy for this episode, then the system is broken, for sure. I’m starting a campaign, because it’s movie s— that we do in this finale.” Well, it’s working. The show’s stunt coordination was voted Most Likely to Earn Someone an Emmy in our 5th Annual Season Finale Awards.

Stunt coordinator J.J. Makaro and fight coordinator James Bamford phoned in to Entertainment Weekly Radio to accept the honor and chat about the blowout tunnel battle and the dual showdown between Oliver and Slade. “Both fights actually became more of a practical, on-the-day kind of situation,” Makaro says. “We really, really strongly rehearsed the final fight where we had to figure out where the editing points were gonna be [between past and present], but [the tunnel] was more a logistical planning situation where we just put James in a room and he just sat there and he planned. He sat for hours staring at the tunnel [thinking] where he was gonna put his people, where the camera was gonna move.”

Makaro is quick to point out that his team succeeds because of the respect the show’s other departments have for what they do. He also says he and Bamford are used to hearing the question we asked them: How in the world do you top this?

“We have that question asked of us every episode,” Makaro says. “We’ve got the most incredible writers. They come up with terrific ideas, they use them to fuel our imaginations and leave us open to take that and make it even bigger. So they keep pushing the bar higher and higher and higher for us. And that’s the fun and thrill of doing the show…. ‘Try to top this, try to top this.’ Greg Berlanti, our producer, has a mantra that says, ‘Never leave anything behind.’ Don’t save anything for tomorrow. Give it your best, give it your all, and then figure out tomorrow how to do it better.”

Listen to the interview below (at one point we lose Bamford, who was kind enough to call from Italy). Then watch those epic fight scenes again. READ FULL STORY

The CW's new fall shows (all two of them!): A snap judgment (and a punt)

The CW apparently likes what The CW does, because TV’s YA fantasy aisle isn’t making radical changes to its fall lineup. Just two new shows and a scheduling shift, with The Originals moving to Mondays. But count me among those bummed that The Tomorrow People became a thing of the past too soon: I admired the perspective and the storytelling of the network’s take on super-powered outsiders, especially in its early going. That said, I like the looks of the superhero saga that aspires to fill the void… READ FULL STORY

'Arrow' cast discusses finale, reveals which character the writers originally wanted to be Merlyn's child

After last night’s heart-stopping, shocking, action-packed Arrow finale, we caught up with some of the show’s stars on the red carpet at the CW Upfront to talk about what just happened, what comes next, and all things Canary.

Stephen Amell on Olicity: “Think back to what Oliver said in the sixth episode, which is, ‘Because of what we do, I can’t be with someone I could really care about,’ and I think that that remains true. So I don’t necessarily think that it was a total bait-and-switch.”

Amell on how Oliver will react to losing Thea: “Based on the fact that Oliver has lost both his mother and his father, Thea’s going to be incredibly important to him, so if she’s not what he expects, that’s going to be really difficult for him to deal with.” READ FULL STORY

'The Flash' First Look: Grant Gustin suits up for new promo -- VIDEO

Just days after the announcement everyone knew was coming, CW has unleashed a flashy new promo for its next superhero smash, The Flash.

The spot, which features Grant Gustin in full costume glory, aired after the season finale of Arrow and had a cameo from leading man Stephen Amell.

Game on, indeed. READ FULL STORY

Stephen Amell previews the 'Arrow' finale: Oliver does 'the unthinkable;' plus, the ending nobody could predict

When we last left Starling City, it was being terrorized by Slade’s Mirakuru soldiers. Oliver and his team had injected Roy with the cure, Thea had fired a gun, and Amanda Waller had scheduled a drone strike to level the entire city. And that was just in Arrow‘s penultimate episode.

“We stretched [the finale] out this year. It was a long three episodes because essentially, our last three episodes — save for the last act of the season — take place over the course of one night,” Stephen Amell tells EW. “So the wardrobe department had it relatively easy because no one changed. But yeah we did absolutely save the best for last. This is our best episode of the season for sure.”

What exactly does Arrow‘s season 2 finale have in store for viewers? Check out our chat with Amell below:

'Arrow': Katie Cassidy on fighting back, Laurel and Oliver as 'soul mates;' plus, a game of 'Arrow or Canary'

Starling City is under attack in tonight’s episode of Arrow – and running is no longer an option.

With Slade’s Mirakuru army invading the entire city, everyone is forced to suit up — even Laurel, who can be seen holding a bow and arrow in tonight’s episode. “She does have it in her hands, but whether she knows how to use it or not, we’ll find out,” Katie Cassidy says with a laugh.

All jokes aside, it’s time for Team Arrow (and all the help they can get) to fight back. READ FULL STORY
