Though Constantine unfortunately didn’t make it to round two, Matt Ryan got to play the character at least one more time. Keep reading today’s TV-Cap to see photos of Ryan in an upcoming episode of Arrow, to learn who’s been cast as Mr. Freeze in Gotham, to find out about Chris Hardwick’s new game show, and so much more.
Constantine’s Here to Help. The November 4th episode of Arrow features a familiar, mystical face. Constantine lives! Specifically, Matt Ryan’s Constantine. He never actually died, but the NBC series was canceled and it’s a delight to see the character continuing. He’ll drop into Star City to assist with Thea’s and Sara’s Lazarus-pit induced bloodlust problems. [TVLine]
Who Can Keep Up? I don’t even have any more jokes to make about Gotham and its villains. The drama has cast another one, and it’s a biggie: Victor Fries, a.k.a. Mr. Freeze. Nathan Darrow (House of Cards – MEECHUM!) will be playing the character, and he’ll appear in the series beginning on November 30. If we get to see Victor and Nora, I’m on board. [Nerdist]
Playing a Game. It’s time for Chris Hardwick to take on an additional adventure. He’ll be hosting a new game show on NBC called The Wall. The LeBron James produced competition will feature two teams who will go head to head for cold, hard cash dollars. NBC has ordered ten episodes. [Nerdist]
The Most Adorkable. Brighten your Thursday by watching clips from next week’s Supergirl. Supergirl will be facing off against Hellgrammite and Cat Grant. Melissa Benoist as Kara Danvers makes the world a better place. Sure, only a single episode has aired so far, but it’s obvious she’s the best. [Comic Book Resources]
Thousands of Hours. Jemma Simmons has had a few things going on since she got trapped in the Monolith in the Season 2 finale of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. The latest episode, “4,722 Hours,” was told from Simmons’ perspective and filled in some gaps. As long as you’ve watched the episode, go read Joseph’s review.
Sitting Inside Baby. Wednesday’s Supernatural was shot from a fresh perspective: that of the Impala. The car is the Winchesters’ home on wheels and is especially loved by Dean. “Baby” was one of the best episodes of the series and made my heart darn near explode with feelings. I talked with Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki about the making of “Baby,” and you can read their thoughts on the episode here at Nerdist.
No Choices. The citizens trapped in Los Angeles in USA Network’s Colony don’t have many options. They can comply with the occupation or resist. Resisting could mean dying. A new teaser for the Legendary TV and Universal Cable Productions show emphasizes the lack of great options. You can watch the teaser at Variety. Colony will premiere on January 14.
Family’s Important. Merida is currently under Emma’s influence in Once Upon a Time, and her story apparently won’t be done anytime soon. The ABC show has cast Merida’s parents from Brave, King Fergus and Queen Elinor. I’m guessing we’ll see them in a flashback scene when they appear in the November 15 episode. Glenn Keogh will play Fergus, and Caroline Morahan will play Elinor. [The Hollywood Reporter]
Not Exactly Hogwarts. Universal Orlando’s getting at least one new attraction in 2017, and it’s probably not what you’re expecting. The ride will star Jimmy Fallon of The Tonight Show. The attraction is called “Race Through New York Starring Jimmy Fallon,” and it will feature 4D technology. Fancy, right? Fallon teased, “Do you know the Harry Potter rides and all that stuff? It’s like that, except instead of Harry Potter, it’s me, and instead of Hogwarts, it’s New York City.” [Deadline]
Ash Will Continue. Starz’s Ash vs. Evil Dead hasn’t even premiered yet (it will drop on October 31), but come on. It’s Bruce Campbell. It’s Sam Raimi. We all have high hopes and so does Starz. They’ve already renewed the series for a second season. [Nerdist]
Are you looking forward to seeing Mr. Freeze on Gotham?
