With Arrow's first season finale airing Wednesday at 8/7c, TVGuide.com thought it would be a good time to look back at The CW's super series as a whole, and see if they heeded our original advice on how to make a show about DC Comics' emerald archer work.
12 things Arrow can learn from Smallville, Buffy and more!
Last summer, we gathered a list of 12 things that Arrow should and shouldn't do in order to be a successful series based on tried-and-true heroic formats, including Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Green Lantern, Batman Begins and superhero predecessor Smallville. Let's take a look and see if they listened:
James Van Der Beek; Katie Holmes
Now that Katie Holmes is free available, surely she'll soon be approached to appear in any number of projects. Our suggestion? Reuniting with her Dawson's Creek cohort James Van Der Beek on his ABC comedy Don't Trust the B---- in Apartment 23 — and we're not the only ones thinking about it. In fact, creator Nahnatchka Khan is already cooking up ways that Joey and Dawson could reunite.
ABC announces fall premiere dates
Khan would love to see Holmes portray a heightened version of herself, similar to what Van Der Beek does on the ABC comedy. "In my mind, I think it would be really funny if there is...
Joseph Gordon Levitt
Joseph Gordon-Levitt will step into the role of Alberto Falcone — aka The Holiday Killer — for The Dark Knight Rises, Variety reports.
The Holiday Killer — first introduced in the comics in 1996 — is known for killing on holidays and leaving behind a small item representing that holiday at every crime scene. Alberto is the son of organized-crime chief Carmine Falcone, whom Tom Wilkinson portrayed in...

Batman Begins, the 2005 movie from Christopher Nolan with Christian Bale as "Batman," successfully restarted the DC Comics franchise for the big screen. The movie explored the origins of the character, from the death of his parents as a young boy, to donning the batsuit for the first time. The movie was a huge hit, and grossed over $350 million worldwide. The sequel, The Dark Knight opens today, with critics and fans already raving over the performance by the late Heath Ledger. I wanted to refresh my memory by revisiting Batman Begins before heading to the theater, and, thankfully, Warner Bros recently released the movie on Blu-ray (it had previously been released on DVD and HD DVD).I regretted not seeing Batman Begins in the theater; my first viewing was on my 32" TV when the DVD was first released.
