OUT OF THE SHADOWS AND INTO THE LIMELIGHT

OLIVER QUEEN HIMSELF, ARROW STAR STEPHEN AMELL, TO SERVE AS MASTER OF CEREMONIES AS WARNER BROS. TELEVISION PRESENTS A NIGHT OF DC ENTERTAINMENT, SATURDAY, JULY 26, AT COMIC-CON 2014

Three-Hour Event (8:00–11:00 p.m.) in Hall H Features the World Premiere of Gotham,
Complete Pilot Screening of The Flash and Exclusive Footage From New Series Constantine and Season Three of Arrow.


BURBANK, Calif. (July 8, 2014) — While it may be possible to throw a great party without the assistance and backing of a billionaire playboy, Warner Bros. Television (WBTV) and DC Entertainment (DCE) are taking no chances, with Starling City’s favorite vigilante-turned-hero stepping out of the shadows and into the limelight, temporarily putting down his bow in favor of picking up a mic: Arrow star Stephen Amell (Twitter: @amellywood) has been tapped to serve as master of ceremonies when Warner Bros. Television Presents A Night of DC Entertainment on Saturday night, July 26, at Comic-Con 2014.

As previously announced, WBTV and DC Entertainment are teaming up for a three-hour (8:00–11:00 p.m.) special event in Hall H designed for DC Comics fans and featuring some of DC Comics’ greatest characters. Amell will preside over the world premiere screening of Gotham and the complete pilot screening of The Flash, and will give fans a look at footage from the Constantine pilot and a sneak peek at season three of Arrow. He will also introduce select stars and producers from each of the four series.

In Arrow, Stephen Amell plays Oliver Queen, who returned home to Starling City after being gone for five years, during which time he suffered unimaginable ordeals. With a mysterious agenda and armed with a new set of skills, Oliver moonlights as the Arrow, a crime-fighting hero looking to clean up the streets of his city. Joined by his team — John Diggle (David Ramsey), Felicity Smoak (Emily Bett Rickards) and Roy Harper (Colton Haynes) — Oliver protects the people he loves, becoming a beacon of hope for the city’s most vulnerable, and a weapon of justice against those who prey upon them. Arrow returns for season three on October 8, airing Wednesdays at 8/7c on The CW.

Definitely not the announcement many Arrow fans around here were hoping for, but still cool nonetheless. With these four shows sharing a panel, there's obviously some form of network collaboration already underway. Perhaps, the big announcement will be that all four shows will be connected (Unlikely, but a fan can dream!)? But Amell, hint that he's going to another city leads me to believe that something is afoot. On the DCCU front, Amell quickly dissuaded any notions that the big announcement was going to be his inclusion in Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice so perhaps it's time the fans let that idea die a quiet, dignified death.

On the actual panel, I'm guessing we're going to have some major announcements for each show revealed, most likely some DC cameos and guest stars that are still a mystery.  After all, we still don't know who the main villain of Arrow season three will be.
