Wilson Bethel, who debuted as Benjamin Poidexter, aka Bullseye, in the third season of , very nearly beat out Chris Evans for the coveted role as Captain America. Looking back on his career, the actor explained just how close he came to playing the First Avenger, and what effect it had on him. “I mean, that was both, probably the single most exciting time of my life and also the single most devastating when it didn’t happen,” he told . RELATED: Going into detail about the audition process, Bethel said, “They put me in the Cap suit and did everything. So, I screen-tested it at Marvel with a number of other guys. They ended up releasing all the other guys …” He met with Captain America: The First Avenger director Joe Johnston to see the movie’s storyboards, but accepted it wasn’t meant to be following his second screen test. “I think it was like one or two days later that they made the announcement that Chris Evans got the part,” Bethel said. “So, to be perfectly honest, that was one of the hardest moments in my professional career. And it spun me out for a while, to be honest with you.” Praising Evans for his tenure as Captain America, Bethel also agreed that it was for the best. “The fact that things have kind of come full circle in a way, and I still get to be a dude in a suit, is pretty exciting,” he said.

This year’s upcoming Arrowverse crossover event, titled “,” will be in no shortage of surprises and crowd-pleasing appearances. So far, we know that Ruby Rose’s Kate Kane, aka Batwoman, will join the ever-growing cast of The CW’s superhero universe alongside Green Arrow, The Flash and Supergirl. But that’s not all — it was recently confirmed that Tyler Hoechlin’s Superman would also appear in all three episodes of the crossover… and he will be joined by none other than Lois Lane, who will be played by Grimm‘s Elizabeth Tolloch. Now, thanks to a new picture from the set of “Elseworlds,” we can add a new character to the list of superheroes who will appear in the highly-anticipated crossover event: John Wesley Shipp’s The Flash. And no, we are not talking about Jay Garrick, the role Shipp is currently playing on the current, Grant Gustin-starring television series. We mean the Scarlet Speedster that Shipp played in the ’90s television series, The Flash, where he played Barry Allen. RELATED: The picture, which was posted by Stephen Amell on the Arrow star’s personal Instagram account, features Shipp in his old Flash costume, standing side-by-side with Supergirl, Oliver Queen’s Flash and Barry Allen’s Green Arrow (a body swap which is, in and of itself, ). Fans will instantly recognize Shipp’s old Flash costume, which appears to be lifted straight from the 1990 series. A post shared by (@stephenamell) on Oct 22, 2018 at 4:11pm PDT While we don’t yet know how Shipp’s Flash will become involved in the events of the crossover, his mere presence retroactively makes the ’90s series a part of Arrow, The Flash and Supergirl‘s multiverse. The title of the event itself, Elseworlds, is a reference to out-of-continuity comic book stories that partially constitute the DC Multiverse. Therefore, the world of the 1990 The Flash television series has now become an official part of the Arrowverse, like NBC’s Constantine before it. Shipp’s inclusion in the crossover comes as a genuine surprise, and it only adds to the excitement surrounding the big event.

To some degree, I don’t think we see a lot of characters enjoying their super powers the same way that you and I would. I think it’s great to see the drama of characters burdened by that which separates them from society, but there’s also the idea that many people solely enjoy and celebrate every day that which makes them different instead of being fearful or angsty or regretful.” Based on the DC Comics team of the same name, the series sees police detective Dick Grayson find a supernaturally powered girl named Raven.

WARNING: The following article contains spoilers for the Season 7 premiere of , “Inmate 4587,” which aired Monday October 15 on The CW. Not long after Season 6 of Arrow concluded, it was announced that Colton Haynes was returning to the series as a regular member of the cast for Season 7. Haynes had departed the CW series midway through its third season, and had made sporadic guest appearances throughout subsequent seasons. However, this marked the first time in four years that the actor was now back to series regular status — something that obviously had a lot of fans excited for his return. What was even more intriguing was the fact that no one in the Arrow production team would tell us what Roy’s role in Season 7 would be. Even more mysterious, the character was nowhere to be seen in the trailers, promos and posters hyping the premiere of the season. Finally, the mystery was put to bed last Monday when the new season of Arrow premiered. At the close of the episode, we discovered that part of the story was now being told in flash-foward form — Oliver Queen’s son , and he has traveled to the island of Lian Yu where he meets . RELATED: In the episode itself, we only caught a brief glimpse of Arsenal in the dark, but what little we saw confirmed that he was still skilled in archery and wearing a superhero costume. Well now, thanks to a new picture from the set of Arrow, we have a clear look at future Roy’s costume. just cast Older William as a series Regular this year. And the showrunner said the new "Flash Forwards" will be a thing in every future season of the show until it goes off the air — Charlie Schneider (@AwesomEmergency) As we can see, Arsenal’s costume still looks like the old one he used to wear back when he was the Arrow’s partner fighting crime in Star City. However, it looks considerably worn and torn, and the added presence of a black combat vest makes us wonder how long Roy has been sequestered on the island. When Roy left town in Season 3, he bequeathed his uniform to Thea Queen, who has since left the series. This means that, somehow, in the future, Roy gets his old costume back, and finds himself on Lian Yu. But why? We’ll just have to keep watching to find out.

Probably not. But it’s still interesting to note that the Smallville Kent house itself is so iconic that there was no need to find another to replace it.

Coming hot off the heels of yesterday’s , The CW has now revealed even more photos from the upcoming Breakfast Club-inspired flashback episode of Season 3, during which the show’s young cast will play teenage versions of their characters’ parents.
