There has been word that a Flash/Arrow spin-off may be in the works, using several recurring characters from the two shows. The producers are in “very early talks on a very general idea that [they] haven’t dug any deeper on yet, and aren’t allowed to say anything yet”, but rumours are that Brandon Routh (Ray Palmer/Atom), Victor Garber (Martin Stein/half of Firestorm), Wentworth Miller (Leonard Snart/Captain Cold) and Caity Lotz (Sara Lance/Canary) will be featured, as will “3 major DC Comics characters who have never appeared in a TV series”.

2) More Daredevil teasesA new motion poster has been released featuring Charlie Cox as Matt Murdock.

3) More Supergirl casting: Supergirl gains two more cast members: Chyler Leigh as Alex Danvers (Kara’s foster-sister) and David Harewood as the villain, Hank Henshaw. Additionally, Andrew Kreisberg will be joining Flash/Arrow teammate Greg Berlanti in writing and producing the show. The team is also on the search for an actor “5 foot 11 or taller”, “square-jawed” with “a ripped physique”. Actors are to email applications with the subject “Superman”. It would appear the Man of Steel will make some sort of appearance on the show.

4) Sex Criminals TV adaptationAward winning comic book Sex Criminals has signed on with Universal for a TV adaptation. The concept behind the comic is a little unorthodox, which would lead to some interesting TV. *wink wink*
 
5) Another Apocalypse additionBen Hardy has been cast in X-Men: Apocalypse in a significant role, the specifics of which have not been revealed.
