MTV recently visited the sets of “Arrow” and “The Flash” and learned more about the two shows’ upcoming fall crossover. The episodes will launch “Legends of Tomorrow” and have a massive cast of heroes.
“When we started shooting ‘Arrow,’ there was just me, right?” said “Arrow’s” Stephen Amell. “And then when they started ‘Flash,’ it was just Barry, and then obviously, the worlds expand… We shot a scene that had, like, nine superheroes in it. Nine people with either powers or super suits. It was an amazing thing to look at, to look out over the scene and see the world that has been built over the course of three plus years.”
The crossover will also feature “Legends” bad guy Vandal Savage, will tell a serialized story requiring viewers to watch both halves, and Caitlin Snow and Felicity Smoak will have more scenes together.
ComicBook.com talked to “Arrow’s” Amanda Waller, Cynthia Addai Robinson, about the upcoming “Suicide Squad” film and Viola Davis playing The Wall.
“Oh, I’ll be the first in line,” said Robinson. “I can’t wait. I’m like super-pumped to see the movie and of course, I’m excited Viola Davis is going to be doing her version of Amanda Waller. And I’m very honored to even be in the same company, in terms of the other actresses that portrayed that character — Angela Bassett, C.C.H. Pounder, Pam Grier. A lot of fierce, amazing women. And I know Viola Davis is going to knock it out of the park, so I’m gonna be in line with everyone else waiting for the movie.”

During last night’s “Supergirl” premiere, CBS aired a promo for the CW’s “Flash” that included a kiss between Barry Allen and Patty Spivot.
While talking to TV Line, “Flash” star Grant Gustin teased a bit more about the hunt for a Firestorm fill-in — a fill-in needed to keep Dr. Stein from dying. “There are a couple Firestorm options, and there are some fun scenes with those guys,” said Gustin. The character they settle on, however, is Franz Drameh’s Jax.
“Jax does not want to be a hero,” said Drameh. “He does not want these powers” but that doesn’t stop the Firestorm addition from deciding to “step up and embrace it and do his job.”
And the CW has released a scene from tonight’s “Flash” that features Iris reuniting with her mother.

Collider spoke to Cory Michael Smith about Edward Nygma’s development and his confiding in Kristen Kringle.
“In the very last episode of season one, the two separate parts of [Edward’s] psyche emerged from a freakout he has because he thinks she figured it out. So, it’s really the elephant in the room,” said Smith. “He assumes that she knows, or suspects it. He just has to let her know that, yes, in fact he did do it. Also, I think that this is all just moving so quickly for Ed. I know that I’ve been in the position with people where I’m just falling so quickly that you want to just share everything, but it never really works out quite the way you want it to. This is his first experience with that. He just wants to tell her everything because he thinks it’s important and that she should know. It’s kind of bragging. She hurt his feeling by saying, ‘You couldn’t really stand up to him.’ And he’s like, ‘Well, actually babe, I did, in the most epic way possible, and it was all for you. You’re welcome, and I’d do it again.’ His judgment is just a little off.”
Camren Bicondova also spoke with Variety about her character’s gradual growth into Catwoman and teased what’s to come for Selina Kyle.
“She starts doing some really cool things,” said Bicondova. “There’s this controversy of the character of Catwoman where is she a villain or is she a hero, and for me personally, I think Selina and Catwoman are both antiheroes. Lately, within the season so far, we’ve seen Selina change and see emotions we don’t normally see, so you’re trying to figure out ‘is she going to the dark side, is she going to the good side?’ And in the next couple of episodes you’re going to see her trying to figure that out for herself, but she’s going to be doing some things that are kind of twisted, but for very good reasons, and I’m just very excited and I’ve been getting to do some really cool scenes. She’s a teenager and she’s reacting to emotions she hasn’t felt [before].”

Comic Book Movie has another passage from Empire magazine’s “Suicide Squad” coverage, this time focusing on Cara Delevingne’s Enchantress.
“June is an adventure seeker who’s always wanted some excitement,” said Delevingne. “And she gets what she wished for, but in a terrible way. At the start of the movie she discovers a cavern and finds…something…within.” Delevingne also spoke about the Enchantress half of her character: “She’s an ancient sorceress. A feral being. She’s been trapped for so long and now she’s finally let out.” When it came time to separate June and Enchantress in her head, the actress said she’d “gather the accent, which is deeper and posher than June’s. And I’d listen to Nick Cave’s ‘Red Right Hand,’ that song about the devil. Also a lot of Megadeth. Just evil stuff.”

MTV talked to Melissa Benoist about “Supergirl,” specifically the upcoming addition of Lucy Lane (Jenna Dewan-Tatum) to the show. “What’s funny is that it looks like she could possibly be a nemesis-type character, but they actually really get along and like each other, which makes things really interesting,” said Benoist. “It’s nice to see two people getting along and liking each other.”
“Mission: Impossible” star Henry Czerny will guest star on CBS’ “Supergirl” as Winslow Schott Sr., a classic Superman villain known as the Toyman (via ComicBook.com).
According to the official character description, “Winslow Schott, Sr. is a classic D.C. supervillain, a mad criminal genius known as Toyman — and Winn’s estranged father. Toyman weaponizes toys to wreak destruction and revenge but is ultimately driven by one thing — the obsessive desire to reunite with his beloved son.”

“I’m going to go out on a limb here and say something definitive: Rick is okay regarding that cut. His hand will survive. There will be a bandage. There will be some ointment involved. But he’s going to walk away from it.”
