Katie Cassidy (Arrow, Supernatural) will be our guest for Calgary Expo 2014.
Thanks for tuning in for #GuestNews – we’ll be back on Thursday at 10 am MST for another announcement. Check our our full list of announced guests here: http://ow.ly/tAStH
The CW’s ‘Arrow‘ will finally return from its Olympic slumber next Wednesday with the tick-tock of Oliver’s “Time of Death,” introducing ‘Prison Break’ baddie Robert Knepper as the infamous DC villain. Before the clock strikes however, we’ve got the full set of photos and a new preview for next week’s ‘Arrow’ return.
While we’ve seen plenty of photos of the villain himself, William Tockman (Knepper) has nothing on the terror of the Lance’s full family reunion, following Sara (Caity Lotz)’s big reveal from prior installment “Heir to the Demon.” Oliver attempts to smooth the transition, but knowing Laurel, the booze will be flowing heartily. Elsewhere, what’s got Felicity into such damning trouble with our DC villain?
Here’s what The CW had to say of next week’s “Time of Death”:
ROBERT KNEPPER AND ALEX KINGSTON GUEST STAR — Oliver (Stephen Amell) brings Sara (Caity Lotz) into the Arrow team. Watching Oliver and Diggle (David Ramsey) spar with Sara and talk old scars, Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) starts to feel left out.
The team is investigating a villain named William Tockman, a.k.a. The Clock King (guest star Robert Knepper), who is a brilliant thief armed with technology that can open any bank vault in Starling City. After The Clock King infiltrates the computer systems in the lair, Felicity feels pressure to prove her worth. When she gets a lead on Tockman’s whereabouts, she heads out without the team, putting her in peril.
Meanwhile, Oliver throws Sara a welcome home party, but Laurel (Katie Cassidy) refuses to attend. After Lance (Paul Blackthrone) makes his case for a family dinner, Laurel acquiesces, but when Oliver shows up with Sara, she loses her temper on both of them.
The network, Warner Bros., and DC Entertainment have announced that the popular show has been renewed for a third season. In fact, stars Stephen Amell, Colton Haynes, and Caity Lotz took to Amell’s Facebook page and shot a pic of the trio holding up the three fingers sign to confirm the good news!
As a modern re-telling of the character’s life and origin based on the DC Comics character Green Arrow, the series stars Canadian born actor Stephen Amell as Oliver Queen, a billionaire playboy from Starling City.
The young Queen returns to his hometown five years after being stranded on an island following a shipwreck incident. He is re-united with his family and friends, but also driven to begin a crusade to find out those who, years earlier, were responsible for his fate.
The series focuses on Ollie as he takes up a bow, arrow, and hood to clean up his city, while also flashing back to his experiences during his time on the island itself.
Hiding his secret from his family, Ollie is eventually assisted and joined by his bodyguard John Diggle (David Ramsey) and his company’s IT specialist Felicity Smoak (Emily Bett Rickards)
Now running on its second season, “Arrow” has steadily risen up in ratings thanks to its superb writing and character casting. Literally shifting gears and taking the character to familiar ground, Ollie has refocused his efforts to clean up crime by trying another way, by actually refraining from killing the criminals he hunts down.
The supporting cast further expands with the addition of Roy Harper (Colton Haynes), a former petty crook who idolizes Arrow and becomes the boyfriend of Oliver’s sister Thea (Willa Holland), and the emergence of another mysterious female vigilante known as the “Canary” (Caity Lotz), who’s is more than meets the eye, in terms of combat savvy.
As the dangers of his double life and mission escalate with the growing criminal element and figures tied to his past in the island, Ollie’s mission to save those he cares for and become the hero he was born to be has only just begun.
Much like the Superman centered series “Smallville”, “Arrow” aims to take point and establish a true shared DC TV Universe in the small screen. This was done with the successful introduction of other DC Comics characters not necessarily related to Green Arrow, but encountered by the character through his adventures in the comics. This includes Slade Wilson/ Deathstroke (played by Manu Bennett) as Ollie’s former ally and now primary antagonist.
Science fiction is a genre that has, at least in the past 35 years or so, embraced women as heroes. We at GFR like to embrace females in any way possible (wink wink, nudge nudge), so it’s a wonder we haven’t yet talked about the upcoming adaptation of Daniel Schaffer’s 2006 graphic novel The Scribbler, starring Katie Cassidy (Arrow). You’ll be hearing more about it though, as indie distributor XLrator has acquired the North American rights to the New Artists Alliance film. Hopefully this female-powered, quasi-superhero flick can completely eradicate Zack Snyder’s Sucker Punch from everyone’s minds once and for all.
The Scribbler is directed by John Suits (Family of Four) from a script written by Schaffer himself, who also wrote 2009′s similarly female-centric horror-comedy Doghouse. Apparently XLrator was as impressed with the film as Schaeffer was, as he said in a press release that the adaptation stays “true to the themes of the graphic novel while adding a wealth of visual treats I never even thought of,” while also saying “fans of Katie Cassidy may actually pee themselves when they get a load of her performance as Suki.” I mean, I want to love this movie as much as the next guy, but I don’t know if it’s worth having spontaneous bladder problems.
Cassidy plays Suki, a woman who is plagued by a host of different personalities that constantly playing tug of war with her mind. Doctors use an experimental treatment called the Siamese Burn in an attempt to combat her mental illness. The process involves electrical shocks to jolt the excess personalities from the brain. As the layers are shed, a new identity called The Scribbler begins to emerge, getting stronger as time goes by, to the point that Suki is afraid this is her true self.
In the comic, the visuals play their part in signifying Suki’s mental changes, and the Scribbler’s presence brings about shady imagery and a darker tone, so it’ll be interesting to see how Suits accomplishes this on the big screen. There are also a lot of backwards messages used, so be sure and have a mirror handy.
Eliza Dushku (Dollhouse), Michelle Trachtenberg (Buffy the Vampire Slayer), Gina Gershon (Bound) and former porn star Sasha Grey (Would You Rather?), provide Cassidy’s supporting cast. The film’s testosterone will be provided by Billy Campbell (The Rocketeer), Garret Dillahunt (Raising Hope), Kunal Nayyar (The Big Bang Theory) and Michael Imperioli (The Sopranos). It’s quite a talented cast, and a pretty solid and original premise. Which means it’s probably going to be terrible, right? Keep all your personalities’ fingers crossed.
With an expected release date coming in the fall of 2014, we’ll probably see some actual trailer footage before too 2014 is too old.
Arrow returns January 15, 2014.
