Adding to the already numerous sneak peeks, The CW unveiled trailers for the upcoming seasons of Arrow, The Flash, and Legends of Tomorrow at their respective San Diego Comic-Con panels.
The Arrow Season 5 trailer shows Oliver (Stephen Amell) in transition, as he takes a new approach to saving Star City. The trailer also contains a tease of the new flashbacks, which are set to fulfill one (if not more) thing fans have waited for since the very first season. TVLine reports that series newcomers will include Josh Segarra (Chicago P.D.), playing DA Adrian Chase and the crimefighter known as Vigilante, Chad L. Coleman (The Wire), playing criminal Tobias Church, Rick Gonzalez (Reaper) as Wild Dog, Tyler Ritter (The McCarthys) as Detective Malone, and Carly Pope (Popular) as Coast City reporter Susan Williams. Returning from last season will be Madison McLaughlin as Evelyn Crawford AKA Artemis.
Meanwhile, the Season 3 trailer for The Flash reveals that not all is right with the world following Barry’s fateful decision at the end of last season’s finale; as expected, Season 3 will adapt the monumental comic event, Flashpoint. Returning will be Kenyan Lonsdale as Wally West, who will don the Kid Flash outfit this season, and Matt Letscher as Eobard Thawne/Reverse-Flash. The show will welcome new series regular Tom Felton, best known for playing Draco Malfoy in the Harry Potter franchise, as Julian Dorn.
Deadline reports Matt Letscher will also appear in Season 2 of Legends of Tomorrow, alongside Malcolm Merlyn (John Barrowman), Captain Cold (Wentworth Miller), and Damien Darhk (Neal McDonough), as the Legends and the Justice Society of America face off against the Legion of Doom. The JSA will include Hourman, played by Patrick J. Adams (Suits), as well as the yet-to-be-cast Stargirl, Obsidian, and Dr. Mid-Nite. Other characters slated to appear are The Originals‘ Maisie Richardson-Sellers as Vixen and Nick Zano of 2 Broke Girls as Citizen Steel.
While Supergirl, which is moving from CBS to The CW, also held a panel, there was no trailer for Season 2. Supergirl Season 2 will feature Tyler Hoechlin (Teen Wolf, 7th Heaven) as Superman, and word is that all four DC shows on The CW will crossover sometime this fall season.
