The B-Reel – Green Arrow Meets Mr. Terriffic, The Flash Meets Grodd, ‘Snowpiercer’ Makes the Leap from Film to Television

Olliver Queen was almost exposed once as The Hood on Arrow, arrested and then cleared of the charges. The green make-up he wore not really being much of a disguise, my suspension of disbelief was incredible during the first two seasons. Now as Green Arrow he wears a domino mask, which is a much better disguise, but still how those close to him that don’t already know his secret haven’t figured it out is beyond me. I know, it’s a television show with a guy who shrinks due to a high powered suit, so this shouldn’t be a sticking point. But when they pretty much point it out, as in this new clip in which Ollie finally meets Curtis as Felicity hunts for Ray, it brings it right back to the forefront for me. Still, it’s a pretty funny clip.

Also in Arrow news, talking with Entertainment Weekly, actor Brandon Routh says that though Team Arrow knows he’s alive, he’s still got a ways to go before he’s out of the woods. “It’s a complete S.O.S., with drastic measures that he’s unleashed — as much as he can do in his current situation,” He says. With Damien Dahrk intercepting his transmissions, Routh implies Dahrk may use this information to set a trap for Ollie and the others. “Damien’s motivation is to understand my technology, and then maybe when he finds out a connection, to bait whoever may be coming after me.”

Arrow airs on Wednesdays on the CW.

Ever since the first episode of The Flash, with a scene of a broken cage with a sign that said “Grodd”, fans have been wondering when that storyline would come to a head. There have been other episodes featuring the villainous gorilla, but none focusing on him. Until now. Next week’s episode, titled Gorilla Warfare, finally sees the Flash come face-to-face with one of his most iconic villains. But without his speed, how will Barry stop him?

The Flash airs on Tuesdays on the CW.

In even other Flash/Arrow news, get ready for this season’s inevitable crossover. Taking place in the December 1st and 2nd airing episodes of their respective shows, Team Flash and Team Arrow will be joined by some new faces, possibly setting up events for DC’s Legends of Tomorrow. Producer Mark Guggenheim released this photo on Twitter.

For many who saw last year’s intriguing science fiction film Snowpiercer the film’s brisk pace didn’t allow for much character development or world building. Don’t get me wrong, it was one of my favorite films that year, I just wanted to spend more time on the train, do some more exploring as it were. Well, according to THR, we may get just that as Snowpiercer comes to television courtesy of Marty Adelstein‘s Tomorrow Studios and Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles scribe Josh Friedman.

“We are very excited to be working with Josh on this incredible story,” Adelstein exclaimed. “As such a prolific and innovative writer he is the ideal person to create a massive new world in this adaptation. This is an expansive, high-concept project and we are thrilled to be a part of reimagining it for television.”

The high-concept world of Snowpiercer certainly lends itself well to the episodic nature of television, as it began its life as the French graphic novel Le Transperceneige by Jacques Lob and Jean-Marc Rochette before being optioned for film. With its themes of classism, oppression of the working poor, and wealth disparity, now is about as good a time as any to bring it to a wider audience whom may have missed it in its limited theatrical release.

The is as of yet a premiere date set for Snowpiercer.

And last but certainly not least, I leave you with this behind the scenes video from the set of Supergirl. In this clip David Harewood and Chyler Leigh walk us through the Department of Extra-Normal Operations on a grand tour, and have a lot of fun doing it.

Supergirl airs Mondays on CBS.
