In the following article from Entertainment Weekly 'Constantine' team on why NBC character isn't bisexual, smoking cigarettes, the producers claim they could not glorify the character’s smoking due to network content standards. For the show, producers say Constantine is indeed a smoker … just don’t expect to actually see him smoking. Producers say there’...

If Supergirl and I travel around the globe in opposite directions at just over mach 7, we should be able to create enough centrifugal force to slow the Earth's rotation. Is it really possible to do such thing in reality No. It's completely ridiculous. Physics doesn't work that way, nor does space-time. Indeed, the speed they mention "Mach 7" is ...

From Wikipedia: The show remains more faithful to the source material than the 2005 film, although on-screen depiction of Constantine's chain-smoking habit was said to be curtailed because of broadcast television restrictions (the network eventually becomes more lenient and John is shown smoking on screen in later episodes) Link to the referenced article:...

You are making so many assumptions here. To make it clear there are two major universes. The Arrowverse, which consists of the TV shows Arrow, The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow, Vixen and Supergirl (Supergirl exists in a different Earth ( Earth - 38) than Flash but is still canon to the Arrowverse). Constantine does exist on the same earth as Flash and Arrow. ...

*Season 4 Finale Update The girl has revealed herself to be Nora West-Allen, the daughter of Barry & Iris although whether she follows the same story-line history as the comic version remains to be seen. We don't know (as of pre-S4 finale), but... Assuming this is intended to be significant * there are a couple of likely possibilities... * - Which is ...

Writer and co-executive producer Andrew Kreisberg says: [dropped] the "Green" from the title because "Arrow" felt "sexier, a little more dangerous. But I think the name change also reflects that this version is noticably different from the Smallville incarnation, but also from the Comics. Lead actor Stephen Amell says: Nobody in our universe has ...

The Majority of the externals and locations for the show are filmed in Portland, Oregon (particularly the cityscapes). The studios in which CW films both The Flash and Arrow are based in Vancouver, and some minor externals are filmed there as well (anything casual and unimpressive; not to sleight Vancouver, at all!). Both shows actually construct their ...

I'm going to go out on a limb and say no. Stan Lee died on 12 November, and the episode premiered in the US on 13 November. There is no way they could possibly have rushed out such an indirect, CG-intensive tribute in such a short space of time. Most likely, the episode was written months ago, the scene is a reference to Spider-Man rather than Stan Lee, ...

Microsoft have simply paid for heavily product placement in recent years, to try to combat Apple's market dominance. Consider this article which features a ton of YouTube videos with Microsoft product placement, from an assortment of shows including: NCIS Los Angeles Hawaii Five-O Castle Elementary and more. This article actually posits a ...

Gideon is an interactive artificial consciousness. Now, consider this scenario: You have an iPhone. Your friend also has an iPhone. Both of you use Siri on your phones. Think of Gideon as Siri, from the Future. A lot of people probably use it. The Gideon in S.T.A.R. Labs had a different voice than the one on board the Wave Rider. That's because they ...

Timeline Remnant Speedsters have some immunity to changes in time. As we are told multiple times, only they will remember the changes in time that they make. "It's possible Eobard was in the Speed Force, protecting him like a bomb shelter, keeping him alive and his time line intact. It's what's known as a “timeline remnant”. (Wells-2, Season 2 "Reverse ...

They do to an extent. They are both filmed in Vancouver and share some of the same sets and production teams. This is apparent with places like the coffee shop: Arrow: The Flash: But Oliver Queen's mayoral headquarters and Flash's CCPD building (taken from YouTube) are not the same (notice the windows): Having a quick look through the IMDb crew ...

Arrow and The Flash are part of same canon called Arrowverse and have crossover almost every year and even more then once sometime: The Flash S01E01: It's Pilot for the Flash show and Arrow came for a speech/dialogue only and don't have much impact of it on Arrow show itself, You might already know S02E8 and S02E09 of Arrow is kind of backdoor pilot of ...

In general, the Arrowverse interpretation of Constantine is far more closely aligned to the comics than the movie version. Some of the key aspects where the movie diverges: Constantine is from Liverpool, so Ryan's accent is far more accurate than Reeve's. Constantine was famously drawn specifically to look like the musician Sting, so Ryan physically ...

The answer plays into itself in two ways: In the film Cast Away, Tom Hanks' character finds a Wilson brand volleyball in the wreckage and, after giving it a face in the bloody palm print he leaves on the ball, he proceeds to treat the ball as his friend during his stay on the island. Given Ollie was a castaway on an island himself, he's simply using this ...

First, why I don't believe they meant J'onn: In S01E17 (Manhunter), Colonel Harper approves his transfer to Project Cadmus, and en route J'onn is freed by Kara and Lucy. As far as we know, Non never knew that J'onn was imprisoned, and even if he did, Non would be able to tell from asking Lucy or checking the prisoner's list that J'onn isn't there anymore. ...

Marc Guggenheim, the creator of Arrow and Legends of Tomorrow answered this on Twitter. @Iloveyoursoul I love the TV show, WISEGUY. 4587 was Vince Terranova's "ident code." Arrow & Legends both have lots of Wiseguy easter eggs.

I can't speak to the motivation to the character in the show, but if they follow the motivation of the character from the comics. Barry isn't alive in the future, the year Eobard Thawne is born, but has been immortalized by years of being a hero and the legacy he's left behind (it also helps that he builds a museum to himself) Eobard Thawne (in the comics ...

It doesn't follow a single one. It's both Back to the Future and Terminator and 12 Monkeys, as Cisco explained to Joe, and others. Time travelers are somewhat immune to changes they make themselves. As in Back to the Future, changes to Marty's past won't change his personality as they logically should, nor does it change his memories, but they can threaten ...

As was shown or alluded to in the show, Hunter tries to travel back in time to kill Vandal in ancient Egypt, before he obtained his immortality. Gareeb is evidently Arabic for, "the stranger", so it's likely in reference to Vandal not knowing who Hunter was at that time as he was quite literally a stranger who attempted to kill him.

In Arrow S04E20 aka Genesis, a shaman named Fortuna explains that the idol channels darkness and death but it can be countered by opposing force that channels light and hope but during practice Oliver failed because his internal darkness was more. In the last episode when all the citizens start rioting, it was Oliver who inspired them and gave them hope. ...

From comments made by Wentorth Miller to Buzzfeed it looks like he was, at the very least, instrumental in recommending Dominic Purcell: Miller: During my first episode, in a conversation with [DC Entertainment’s Chief Creative Officer] Geoff Johns, he said, “We’re trying to cast this Heat Wave character. He’s this hothead, aggressive, unpredictable, ...

The current Black Canary no longer has a "Canary Cry" device; she's a metahuman who can make that sound naturally. The device that Laurel used, called the Canary Cry, was given to her on an episode of The Flash called "Who is Harrison Wells?" (S01E19). This is a minor crossover, where Joe and Cisco go to Starling City to dig up information on Harrison Wells,...

Arrow Wikia, listed it quite well: Green Martian physiology: Like all Green Martians, J'onn possesses several incredible powers. Overall, J'onn is an extremely powerful being with even Superman referring to him as "the most powerful being on Earth".

I haven't read anything official that would point to this, but I do believe that the shift in Oliver's moral convictions was planned from the start. In the first season, Oliver's alter ego was called The Hood. The Hood had no qualms in killing people he thought deserved it. Come the second season and Oliver has a change of heart. One of the first things he ...

She meant it as a slight insult, implying that Roy had changed when he started dating Thea. Abercombie and Fitch is an upscale clothing brand that is considered "trendy", particularly among the children of middle-to-upper class parents. I'm not sure what the word for "preppy" is these days, but that's how I'd describe it. Roy and Sin, on the other hand, are ...
