Joe Dinicol Interview
Thanks to Iamgreenarrow for the heads up.

Ragman’s supernatural abilities have not been clearly defined. What exactly are they?

There are some different opinions in the comic books, and it’s something that’s going to come out gradually [on “Arrow”]. What’s sort of fun for us is they are also largely a mystery to Rory. This was something at an inflection point in his life. Those rags were passed down at a moment’s notice from his father to protect him from this [missile] blast. Rory was left with no one to fully explain them to him. There’s some stuff coming up where we’ll hint at the dynamic between him and his father as they were being passed down, but they are largely a mystery to him. There’s differing opinions in the comic books about them being the souls that have been trapped. The specifics of the powers are the fun stuff to discover as we go.

Ragman and the newbies appeared to be a close-knit group. How does Rory process Evelyn’s [Artemis] betrayal?
We’re all pretty shocked by it. For the newbies, we’re each other’s touchstones. Rick Gonzalez and I have become really close off camera, simply by nature of us being the two new guys. We’re the only ones who know what that’s like right now on set. Of course, Madison McLaughlin as well. It really rocks them.

I also think it has a galvanizing effect in that it also brings us together in a lot of ways. It’s a big, devastating thing because it means that Prometheus potentially knows who we all are. What’s great is it really ups the stakes. It makes things much more dangerous for us, not just as vigilantes, but as human beings. It really puts things on lockdown and puts the search for Prometheus and the need for us to take him down a million times higher. It has a great effect on the dynamic of the group because we all have to band together. All of a sudden, we’re in the same boat where this villain knows who we are. It makes for a cool dynamic.



Madison McLaughlin Interview
Thanks to Iamgreenarrow for the heads up.

CBR: Katie Cassidy is on record as saying that putting on the Black Canary costume is a series highlight for her. What was that like for you in Season 4’s “Canary Cry?”

Madison McLaughlin: Among all of the shows that I have done, among all of the roles I have played, one of the most-special moments of my life will always be standing in the fitting room, looking in the mirror and having 17 people whizzing around me as they are sewing me into the Canary costume. There was a moment when I looked into the mirror and said, “This is definitely happening.” It was really cool. It was such an awesome thing.

It’s funny. When I met Katie, one of the first things she said was, “It’s cool, right?” We got to share that a little bit.

It was recently revealed Evelyn is a traitor working with Prometheus. What was your reaction to that bombshell?

Oh, my gosh. It was actually the day we were filming the train scene. Stephen pulled me to the side and he told me a little bit about it. He was the first one to talk to me about it. I was shocked. I was so excited, though, because it opens up a whole new door for the show. Not just for Evelyn, but for everyone involved. I’m excited for the audience to see where we went with it.

Arrow Bosses Tease the Midseason Finale
Thanks to Iamgreenarrow for the heads up.

Will Prometheus be unmasked?! “You’ll have to watch the episode,” Guggenheim says. “Prometheus will make an appearance.”

Felicity’s relationships will collide: “People who have been waiting for Oliver to meet Felicity’s boyfriend won’t be disappointed,” Guggenheim says. “I can tease that Oliver is going to meet Malone, and there’s a Felicity-Oliver moment that the fans will really enjoy.”

Bonus: “There’s a shocking end of the winter [finale] moment for Oliver,” executive producer Greg Berlanti reveals of the cliffhanger.

Interviews

The previous episode of Arrow ended with the reveal that Evelyn, a.k.a Artemis, has been working with the season’s big bad Prometheus as a mole, which is a big part of the reason why she wasn’t involved in the crossover episode.

“It’s funny, to be honest with you, in the break of 508, we talked a lot about Do we have her in there?” executive producer Marc Guggenheim told reporters following a screening of the crossover. “It felt like it was the elephant in the room and we didn’t want it distracting, so we don’t reference it in large part because I’m not a fan of, ‘Oh, it’s too bad that Evelyn’s mom is sick this week.’ I would prefer to just whistle past the graveyard. I will say, you will get a payoff to 507’s cliffhanger with respect to Evelyn big time in 509.”

EW can reveal that Evelyn has not been working with Prometheus all along. In a recent episode, the new Team Arrow discovered the truth about Oliver’s original kill list, and Evelyn felt that Oliver was a hypocrite since he was previously on a mission of revenge, yet prevented her from taking vengeance on her parents’ killer. “Rewatch episode 506,” Guggenheim tells EW of Evelyn’s double cross. “If you view the end of 506 and her final scenes with Oliver as, ‘Oh, she’s lying,’ I think you see when she decided to team up with Prometheus. Basically in the commercial break between Act 5 and Act 6 [of that episode], that’s when she made the decision to join up with Prometheus. So while people were watching car commercials, that’s what she was doing.”

“This was, sort of, Oliver’s version of ‘Flashpoint’ or ‘For the Girl Who Has Everything’ from ‘Supergirl,'” he said. “There’s a reason why these stories are iconic or familiar tropes in comic books. When you show the protagonist the path-not-taken — and you basically put them in a situation where they can choose to stay on that path or go back to their life with all its ugly aspects — and they choose the selfless choice, it makes your character stronger.”

Guggenheim said this Elseworlds-like story will strengthen Ollie’s resolve heading into next week’s mid-season finale.

“Oliver has a new sense of purpose,” he said. “The events of [episode] 508 forced him to emotionally double-down on his mission. He also has a reaffirmation of his bond with Thea, because they chose each other.”

The producers were able to secure the return of original series star Katie Cassidy, which was key “because she is such an essential figure to the show,” Kreisberg says. “She was the second lead on the show. Even though the show has evolved, Laurel is at the heart of it. She was Oliver’s great love, she’s Sara’s sister, she’s Lance’s daughter. … And on top of that, Katie Cassidy will always be so important to us. We were so happy that she agreed to come back, because she is part of the family, both behind the camera and in front of it.”

Every day 100's of items are submitted to us and we don't always have the time to make separate posts for the news and/or there is so much that it would quickly push all other items off the homepage.

So a result we've come up with the idea of the Newsreel, which will feature smaller shows and news items as they happen.

There will be a new Newsreel each day, and as news is added we will update the post and and push it back to the top of the site so that you can see that new items have been added. A tweet of the item will also be sent to our @SpoilerTV account.

New Items will be listed at the top of the article.

About Movie News Roundup

Rather that creating lots of new posts as new info is released and fragmenting the commentary, we thought it would be a good idea for the upcoming major movies to create a single post for each major movies that will collate all the info as it's posted.
