NEW SERIES: DC’S LEGENDS OF TOMORROW To Start Filming in Vancouver on September 9th


DC’s Legends of Tomorrow is expected to be like an Ocean’s Eleven or Dirty Dozen-like caper movie with a squabbling group of heroes and villains joining together on what could be a suicide mission to defeat an enemy who threatens the planet — while trading quips along the way. Doctor Who’s Arthur Darvill plays time-master Rip Hunter who assembles a team of DC super heroes and villains — Victor Garber as Dr. Martin Stein, Brandon Routh as Ray Palmer/ the A.T.O.M, Caity Lotz as the White Canary, Wentworth Miller as Leonard Snart/Captain Cold, Dominic Purcell as Mick Rory/Heatwave, Ciarra Renee as Hawkgirl, (yet to be cast) as Carter Hall/Hawkman, Franz Drameh as Jay Jackson — to try to stop Vandal [...]

Remember the Once Upon a Time season four finale? When Emma Swan (Jennifer Morrison) takes on the untethered darkness that enveloped Regina (Lana Parrilla) and then disappears leaving behind a Dark One’s dagger with her name on it? Last night Once Upon a Time shot the aftermath. Hook (Colin O’Donoghue) picks up the dagger and pleads for Emma’s return. Serious. Henry (Jared Gilmore) joins the group. Hook pleads for Emma’s return. Silly. Some dancing, some fake stabbing & some hair jokes behind the scenes on #OUAT tonight in #Steveston. @yvrshoots — Julie Holden (@jholden23) July 18, 2015    When the cast finally wrapped after midnight, Colin O’Donoghue fake stabbed the others with the dagger.

What happened to the Beer Garden at Granny’s Diner?

Regina gets her man. Once Upon a Time filmed a scene of Regina and Co. confronting her sister Zelena, who seems to have Robin Hood under some kind of spell. Sean Maguire, Rebecca Mader, Lana Parrilla, Emilie de Ravin, Jared Gilmore, Colin O’Donoghue, Josh Dalls and Ginnifer Goodwin performed the sequence over and over in front of hundreds of fans in one of Steveston’s main intersections this afternoon. My photos are a mixture from the rehearsal when Regina and Belle are in flats and Robin Hood has no leather jacket and the first take when Regina and Belle are in heels and Robin Hood has jacket. Regina gets Robin Hood. And brings him back. Lana Parilla cracks up. Between scenes. [...]
