Why did 'Arrow' get snubbed by the 2014 Emmy nominations in the category of stunt coordination? It's wrong, but there may be reasons.
Bad reasons... The Emmy voting system sucks... but I love how they name Bam "legendary coordinator"

Last week, Arrow star Stephen Amell asked fans on his Facebook page whether they had a preferred outlet for him to sell props, collectibles and other Arrow goodies that he occasionally finds himself looking to get rid of. It has turned out to be a precursor to a decision to auction items on eBay to benefit a young girl with cancer.
Prayers for Sophie is a charity he’s promoted before on his Facebook page, to benefit a little girl and her family struggling with cancer and the attendant costs of medical care to keep the child alive. He’s also recently visited with the family, and shortly after that is apparently when this plan took shape.
Amell says that every few weeks he will auction a new item for a charity that’s close to his heart, starting with Prayers for Sophie.

Fans eager for more from the worlds of the CW’s Arrow and The Flash will get their wish this September, when DC Entertainment launches two new digital comic series written by the shows’ writers set firmly inside the continuity of each television series.Arrow: Season 2.5, written by the show’s executive producer Marc Guggenheim with Keto Shimizu, is set between the second and third seasons of the show and will answer “a good chunk of the burning questions left over” from the show’s second season finale, Guggenheim told TV Guide.STORY The CW Sets October Premiere Dates, Focuses on 'Flash’The limited-run series, which will tell one continuous story illustrated by Joe Bennett, will also introduce characters that will later appear in the show’s third season.While Arrow: Season 2.5 has a season break to fill, The Flash: Season Zero has a shorter timespan to deal with—the period between the show’s pilot and its second episode. The series is written by Brooke Elkmeier, Katherine Walczak and the television series’ showrunner Andrew Kreisberg, who said that the digital comic will introduce “a new set of villains that we won’t be seeing on the TV show” who will be “a little more costume-y and a little bit more outlandish” than what viewers can expect from the television series. Art comes from Phil Hester and Eric Gapstur.

With people used to Marvel’s interconnected storytelling between their TV series and films, many have been wondering if a crossover could be in store for Arrow on Batman v. Superman or Justice League, especially after star Stephen Amell teased fans by posting a Justice League comic on his Facebook. Amell has since denied appearing in Batman V Superman, but he’s remained rather coy on being part of Justice League, simply saying it’s too far out to think about at this point.

When “The Flash” premieres in October on the CW, the network wants to make sure the Scarlet Speedster doesn’t blow by you too fast. The new series, a spinoff of sorts from DC Comics-based action drama “Arrow,” represents a significant investment of programming time for the oft-overlooked network.
The new television series starring Grant Gustin (“Glee”) as Barry Allen, a police scientist who becomes the fastest man alive, premieres Oct. 7 at 8 p.m. in what will be its regular Tuesday time slot. At 9 p.m. the next night, the first episode will get an encore airing following the Season 3 premiere of “Arrow.” “The Flash’s” second episode, airing Oct. 14, similarly receives a post-”Arrow” encore showing Oct. 15.
“The Flash” could sprint to success and eventually perform something like the previous long-running, DC-based “Smallville,” which chronicled Clark Kent before he was Superman and ended in 2011. But “The Flash” has some hurdles ahead: Tuesday at 8 p.m. is the domain of CBS’ hit “NCIS,” the most-watched drama in the U.S. — and NBC’s singing competition “The Voice.” The Wednesday 9 p.m. encores will run up against ABC’s smash comedy “Modern Family,” CBS’ “Criminal Minds” and NBC’s stalwart “Law & Order: SVU.”
Obstacles be damned, the CW is giving its young-skewing audience still more chances to meet (or get reacquainted with) the new kid on its programming block six days before his solo series starts. The network will be rerunning the two “Arrow” episodes from last season in which Gustin debuted as the not-yet-a-superhero Allen.

In the newest installment of DC All Access, the hosts have the opportunity to talk about Season 3 of Arrow with the cast of the show.
Star Stephen Amell says we can expect to see Oliver taking to his role as Green Arrow much more readily than in previous seasons.
“Season 1, we found Oliver coming back from the island,” says Amell. “Season 2, we found him on the island and a little bit reluctant to put on the hood. Not Season 3! Season 3 we’re coming out fast and aggressive.”
“You got to keep the stake up in television,” teased Paul Blackthorne, who plays Quentin Lance. “If there’s death-defying stuff going on, and no one dies, its starts not being so death-defying doesn’t it?”
The decision on whether or not to include The CW's Arrow and Flash TV shows to the expanding DC Cinematic Universe has split opinions among fans, but it looks like billionaire by day, vigilante by night, Bruce Wayne is alive and kicking on the small screen!
Is Bruce Wayne Joining The CW's DC Universe?
The CW's The Flash is still a few months away but the pilot episode has already made it's way onto the world wide web. And among other easter eggs (most notably Green Lantern history's Ferris Air) one of DC's most popular and well known companies is thrown in, but if you blink you'll mis it! In a newspaper we see an article titled "WayneTech/Queen Inc. Merger Complete"!

Be sure to watch the season finale of #Arrow, Wednesday at 8/7c for a sneak peak of #TheFlash coming this Fall only on The CW!
The CW have just issued a statement indicating that Arrow‘s Season Two finale, titled “Unthinkable,” will run for a minute and fifteen seconds longer than was originally planned. Revised listings for the May 14 and May 15 schedules indicate that Arrow will gain the extra 75 seconds, and that The Vampire Diaries will get another 57 seconds, with the difference apparently coming out of The 100 and Reign (or their ad time), respectively.
The awards for 2014 were presented last night, with Stunts Canada's Lauro Chartrand presenting the award for the best overall stunt by a stunt woman. Vancouver's Maja Aro, stunt double for Peyton List on The Tomorrow People, and Ginnifer Goodwin on Once Upon a Time was nominated for Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters. That award went to Luci Romberg for a car hit in Identity Thief.
Iron Man 3 were the big winners with the stunt team picking up 3 awards for the parachute stunt, while Fast & Furious 6 took home 2. Surprisingly A Good Day to Die Hard picked up the Taurus for Best Work with a Vehicle against 3 Fast & Furious 6 nominations.
The Lifetime Achievement Award this year was presented to Buddy Joe Hooker (pictured above. Photo credit: IMDB/Buddy Joe Hooker) known for his work on Scarface and The Godfather Part III. Almost 72 years of age he's still stunt co-ordinating with credits on King & Maxwell, HR and Trigger in recent years. An amazing career!
Congratulations to all winners and nominees!
