Check out Felicity Smoak’s new look for Legends of Tomorrow
Arrow‘s Felicity Smoak has a brand-new look for her upcoming cameo on The CW show Legends of Tomorrow. Arrow and Legends executive producer Marc Guggenheim spoke to Deadline about a surprise cameo on the show at the DCTV PaleyFest event last weekend, saying, “[W]e’ve kept it under wraps, but there’s a surprise cameo, surprise crossover moment, in the penultimate episode” (That episode airs on Tuesday, March 28, 2017.)
Wednesday night, Guggenheim tweeted some concept art for the cameo, showing Felicity Smoak, played by Emily Bett Rickards. Felicity will appear in a mask, which you can see in the tweet below, as well as a purple-hooded cape. She’ll be part of the Legends‘ Doomworld event.
According to CBR, Felicity’s costume was designed by Maya Mani and drawn by Andy Poon. These two have created other costumes, including those for Hawkgirl, White Canary, the Atom, Firestorm and Vixen. In the episode, “Doomworld,” the Legion of Doom has assembled the Spear of Destiny, changing reality. Check out the episode synopsis:
DOOMWORLD – After obtaining the Spear of Destiny, the Legion of Doom rewrites reality, leaving the Legends changed, perhaps forever. Frightfully, the Legends’ and the world’s hopes rest with Rory, but being the “hero” is not easy for him. Meanwhile, there is tension within the Legion of Doom and the reason why the Spear of Destiny needs to be destroyed is revealed.

Dolph Lundgren has joined the cast of Arrow as the new villain for season 5, the executive producers announced at the Television Critics Association’s press tour on Thursday.
“In our flashbacks in Russia — we’re set in Russia this season — we are going to be bringing in Dolph Lundgren as one of our big bads,” executive producer Wendy Mericle revealed.
Lundgren’s character was actually mentioned toward the end of season 4, when Taiana referred to the Russian villain Kovar. “He is somebody we heard about in season 4,” Mericle told EW following the panel. “Kovar. We are going to bring him in and he’s going to be this super big badass guy who works for the Russian government, and is not a friend of Oliver or the Bratva. It’s part of Oliver’s promise to Taiana at the end of season 4 and it’s going to be interesting because it’s going to get complicated and very messed up very fast.”
Fellow executive producer Marc Guggenheim also revealed that this will be the final year for the flashbacks. “We always said that Oliver had a five-year journey when he was marooned on the [island],” he said. “This year, Oliver spends his time in the flashbacks in Russia. We know from various seeds we planted back in the pilot that he knows how to speak Russian, he became a Bratva captain. Sort of the flashback story in the first half of the year is going to involve Oliver’s introduction into the Bratva.”
Oliver’s storyline in Russia will mirror what’s going on in the present as he rebuilds Team Arrow. “He’s basically recruited into this crime organization while at the same time in the present day Oliver has recruits of his own,” Guggenheim said. “He’s a trainee in the past, trainer in the present, and I think that will give the audience the connect-up thematically between present in the past.”
Troubled teen Evelyn Sharp (Madison McLaughlin) will return to “Arrow” in Season 5, Variety has learned, and after her brief stint behind Black Canary’s mask last season, she’s definitely been bitten by the vigilante bug. Evelyn was last seen in episode 419, “Canary Cry,” when she impersonated the fallen Black Canary to seek revenge on Damien and Ruvé Darhk for the murder of her parents.
McLaughlin will be reprising her role as Evelyn for multiple episodes Continue reading
