This whole article contains spoilers about the last season of Arrow and the pilot episode of The Flash. You have been warned, folks.
With Arrow Season 3 and The Flash Season 1 getting closer and closer, more and more details are appearing and, frankly, they point to the biggest comicbook universe yet committed to screen.
Remember last season in Arrow we found out that Oliver Queen had a child that he didn’t even know about? And his mother, Moira, paid the child’s mother off and told her to disappear and tell Oliver the child died? Well, in the comics Oliver has an estranged son called Connor Hawke and executive producer Marc Guggenheim says the story of the child could come into play in the future: “We’ve put it out there and we’ve got some cool ideas about where to go with it, should we do it, but we haven’t committed to actually doing it or even when to do it.”
Meanwhile, at the end of the Pilot episode of The Flash a newspaper from 10 years in the future appears and the headline hints at something big from the comics possibly happening in the show…
And The Flash/Barry Allen himself, Grant Gustin has been talking to THR about that reveal: “What the coolest thing about that moment, to me, is they’re setting up the fact that the Flashpoint story line [from the comics] could potentially happen – that Speed Force could be an aspect and time travel is potentially a part of the show.”
Also, DarkHorizons have posted these pretty awesome new promo pieces for both shows…
Arrow airs Wednesdays at 8 P.M. ET/PT on The CW and the the new season will premiere on October 8th – The Flash will premiere on October 7th.
