So I think that the sparky words, scripts and material are more than enough.”

Introducing Elliot Page

-The Canadian star of Juno and Umbrella Academy announced today that he is transgender in a heartfelt Twitter post — and also took a shot at haters like (presumably?) J.K. Rowling: “To the political leaders who work to criminalize trans health care and deny our right to exist and to all those with a massive platform who continue to spew hostility towards the trans community: you have blood on your hands. You unleash a fury of vile and demeaning rage that lands on the shoulders of the trans community, a community in which 40% of trans adults report attempting suicide. Enough is enough. You aren’t being “cancelled,” you are hurting people.”

David Ramsey (who played Diggle) is returning to the Arrowverse. He’s set to direct five episodes and appear on camera in five more across the network’s superhero shows. But when he shows up on Legends, he won’t be playing Diggle. Maybe as the Green Lantern that was teased in the Arrow finale?

-I love that everyone who watched Happiest Season is all “justice for Abby! Screw Harper!” They’re not wrong.
