This is late, mostly because there wasn’t much to post about until now. So here ya go.
Villain From “Suicide Squad” Not Returning – I’ve been very adamant about “Suicide Squad” being hindered by Cara Delevingne’s acting (or lack there of). When speaking to USA Today, she revealed that she was more than likely not returning to the sequel, saying;
It was a life-changing experience and of course I’d do another one, but I don’t think it would make sense for the character. I’ll probably still be on the set hanging out with everyone.
While Delevingne’s character June Moon was somewhat interesting in her baser witch form, the super-witch form she took was weak at best. The film should of looked at Joker, but meh.
‘Green Arrow’ Villain Offers Interesting Angle – Unlike the other Angle from the other things we cover, this angle seems interesting. The villain for the sixth season will be an exclusive Green Arrow villain from the height of the Jeff Lemire run. The villain will be the Richard Dragon, the founder of the Long Bow Hunters. While a lot of the ‘Green Arrow’ titles have been weak since the relaunch back in 2011, the Lemire and artist Andrea Sorrentino run was wildly regarded as the best the character had seen, arguably ever, redesigning top flight Arrow villains like never before, working in John Diggle and not being afraid to be bold and kill of popular secondary characters. Here’s the casting announcement.

Ricardo uses his freedom and 25 million dollars in settlement money to establish control over Star City’s criminal underworld.

The Flash to Introduce Bat-Flash? – The DC Comic line is gearing up for “Metal”, a tale that will apparently incorporate multiple DC character, re-imagined with a Batman twist. The first look at these characters comes from “The Flash”, which will feature the Bat-Flash taking on Flash.
