Grant Gustin and Stephen Amell
If you hadn't noticed, comic books are no laughing matter on TV these days. AMC's The Walking Dead is TV's top-rated show; Fox's Batman prequel, Gotham, is a bona fide freshman hit; Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is a solid performer for ABC; and CBS is eyeing a Supergirl series to call its own. When it comes to heat, well-drawn heroes would seem to have it.

What can you tell me about the Castle wedding? I can't wait! — Jenna
Owing to the complex story that precedes the nuptials — Castle experiences an alternate reality in which he's never met Beckett — the ceremony itself had to be scaled back considerably. "We came very close to doing the other version of the big wedding... and all the hoopla that's associated with that, and we knew that we didn't want to do quite the same thing," executive producer David Amann tells us. However, don't think that Castle's rush to the altar will scare Beckett — or make the moment any less magical. "[Beckett] doesn't necessarily know quite what has driven him to this point, but she's emotionally right there with him," Amann says. "It's a wonderful, wonderful moment, and we hope the fans share that view."
Can you give me any details on the 100th episode of Hawaii Five-0? — Brandon
As promised, the episode, which offers a glimpse of what McGarrett's life could have been without Five-0, (finally) gives some concrete answers about exactly how Wo Fat is connected to McGarrett and his mother....

Things are about to get explosive on The Flash.
The Nov. 11 episode of The CW superhero series introduces the DC Comics villainess Plastique, aka Bette Sans Souci (played by Kelly Frye). Like Barry Allen (Grant Gustin), Bette, a former bomb disposal expert in Iraq, gained a super power as a result of the S.T.A.R. Labs particle accelerator disaster. In her case it's the ability to turn any object she touches into an explosive device...
It's fantastic that comic books and superheroes are finally being recognized as cool, but do they all have to be "edgy" to be accepted? Not if The Flash has anything to say about it.
Despite being a spin-off of Arrow, The Flash feels much closer to Smallville in tone — and that's a good thing! The world doesn't need another dark drama about a man struggling to balance justice and morality. We still have Arrow for that (And Gotham. And Constantine.) Instead, The Flash goes in the complete opposite direction, reminding us how much fun being a superhero can be. But are Arrow fans ready to embrace the light?
Emily Owens alum J.R. Ramirez has been tapped to play Wildcat on Arrow's third season, TVGuide.com has confirmed.

Arrow may have left off on a happy note, but that won't last very long!
The broader the better. Give it to The CW, the little network that could be forgiven for having had a Rodney Dangerfield complex in past seasons, as it enjoys a rare moment of critical goodwill. You'd almost think we were back in the glory days of The WB — whose sole remaining remnant on the current slate is Supernatural, which brought its stars out for a 10th-season victory lap. Though The CW is only launching two new shows this fall (in October), they're two of the very best...
Comic book fans should be happy to hear that The CW's new adaptation of The Flash will be faithful to what the characters they've come to know and love.
The Arrow spin-off tells the story of Barry Allen (Grant Gustin), a scientist who, after a freak accident, gains the power of super speed and transforms into the Fastest Man Alive. Using his powers, Barry hopes to prove the innocence of his father, who was accused of murdering Barry's mother.

"It's probably the most faithful DC Comics adaptation ever," executive producer and DC Comics chief Geoff Johns told reporters at the Television Critics Association's fall previews on Friday. "We've...
Can Arrow's consummate hero have it all?
The third season of The CW series will dare to answer that question when Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) attempts to have his cake and eat it too — in this case, that means being a superhero that the residents of Starling City actually respect while also trying to have a personal life. It's harder than it sounds — something that Ollie will learn fairly quickly into the season.
