Ouch my tongue.

Nothing like ringing your bell first thing in the morning.

Amell later killed some time by engaging in a lengthy Q&A with his Facebook fans, and talks about Constantine’s upcoming guest spot at about 7:30 in. Amell revealed that he’s “super excited” and talked about meeting actor Matt Ryan back at SDCC last year.

TV Line’s Michael Ausiello caught up with “Arrow’s” Paul Blackthorne and got a little bit of info about how the Lance family will react to Sara’s resurrection. “Thanks to Laurel helping him see the light at the end of last season, Lance is back on the wagon for now, trying to keep on the straight and narrow,” said Blackthorne. “But that will of course be tested when Sara comes back from the dead. Because I think when your daughter’s coming back from the dead, she may not necessarily come back as quite the same person. Yeah, that’s going to be an issue for the family to deal with!’

Executive producer Marc Guggenheim spoke to CBR about the series’ new characters and whether or not they write to please the Oliver and Felicity ‘shippers.

“The only thing I can say, or the only thing I’m willing to say, is that we did not get Oliver and Felicity together because of the ‘shippers,” said Guggenheim. “That, quite frankly, we did that because of the chemistry between Emily and Stephen, and we kept writing towards that chemistry.

“And then we reached the point where we were like, ‘Wow, we’re writing towards it. We’ve got to pick a horse — or not pick a horse. We’ve got to do something here. Either that relationship is going to go forward or it needs to stop.’ But it really was — we wrote to what we were seeing on the screen in the dailies. And I know there will be some people who are upset with me. But at the very least, it has the virtue of being true.”

Returns October 7 on the CW

CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR

ComicBookMovie has a batch of new pics from “Civil War’s” Berlin set featuring actors Daniel Bruhl, Emily VanCamp and Scarlett Johansson.

THE FLASH

TV Line has learned that Kimiyo Hoshi, a.k.a. Dr. Light, will appear during “Flash’s” second season. In the show, Doctor Light will appear as a metahuman. She was mentioned in the “Arrow” season two episode “The Man Under the Hood,” when Cisco (Carlos Valdes) and Caitlin (Danielle Panabaker) used a light-based weapon to stop Deathstroke (Manu Bennett). There’s no word on whether the role has been cast or when she will appear.

Variety has an interview with Emmy-nominated visual effects supervisor Armen Kevorkian, who worked with his team at Encore Hollywood to create the Gorilla Grodd effects for the episode “Grodd Lives.”

Returns October 6 on the CW

JESSICA JONES

During the TCAs, IndieWire spoke with Marvel TV head Jeph Loeb about the upcoming Netflix series “Jessica Jones,” specifically about the show’s villain.

“In the same kind of way Vincent D’Onofrio owned his half of ‘Daredevil,’ you’ll see David Tennant own his half of ‘Jessica Jones,'” said Loeb. “What you get out of ‘Jessica’ is a sort of hold-your-breath tension as to what’s going to happen. When you see the dynamic between Krysten Ritter and David Tennant… that question of ‘What’s going to happen next?’ and ‘What could happen next?’ and how that’s driven by character is something that is so important to not just the scripts but also the way the show is shot, and the way that everyone reacts, and the way those two react with each other.”

Debuts on Netflix in 2015

JUSTICE LEAGUE

During an appearance on “The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon,” Henry Cavill talked about his Superman dieting and revealed that “Justice League” begins pre-production in January.

LEAGUE OF EXTRAORDINARY GENTLEMEN

Following rumblings of the reboot’s existence back in May, Collider has new details regarding 20th Century Fox’s new “League of Extraordinary Gentlemen” film from its producer, John Davis. And not only do Davis’ comments confirm the project’s existence, they reveal a rather huge new detail: it’s going to be female-centric.

“It’s female-centric, which I think is interesting,” said Davis. “I love female characters, point-of-view characters in action movies. I thought ‘Mad Max [Fury Road]’ was great. I think you can always find a fresh way of doing something and going back to the basics. What is that people love? What is it that made them love the property in the first place?”

SPIDER-MAN

While there are no official updates on “Spider-Man,” Tom Holland has posted two videos to his Instagram that show off more skills that will come in handy in his new role as Peter Parker.

Holiday with the family. Crushing the rock wall! @samholland1999 @harryholland64

Previous Spider-Man Andrew Garfield spoke to ET Online about Holland, offering the new web-wearing actor praise.

“It feels lovely, especially because Tom Holland is a really, really great actor,” said Garfield. “He was in this movie ‘The Impossible’ and he was just this incredibly powerful, sensitive, just wonderful young actor. And [he’s] a dancer, so his body’s the right [form]. I’m just really excited to just be a fan again as opposed to bearing the weight of it.”

WOLVERINE 3

While little is known about Hugh Jackman’s last ride as Wolverine, Patrick Stewart slyly revealed to Collider that Professor X will have a part to play in the film.

“There is a project in development,” Stewart told Collider. “I understand that Professor Xavier will be making more than an appearance, however. That intrigues me.”
