Heroes and Villains Fan Fest – Chicago Photos: Flash, Arrow, Gotham and more!

Hear those screams? Oh, yeah! It’s coming from the convention floor at the Heroes and Villains Fan Fest in the Windy City! Stars from Arrow, The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow and Gotham came to rock our little fandom hearts! Check out the panel photos and catch some of the dirt that these stars dished.

First up we had the fierce women of Arrow! #BirdsofPrey

(Katie Cassidy, Willa Holland, Caity Lotz, Katrina Law and Charlotte Ross)


When talking about the pranksters on set, Caity Lotz told everyone about the time that John Barrowman pretended that he was badly injured when Caity hit him in the eye with a nerf gun at a convention in San Jose. Caity was left standing on stage crying when Barrowman popped back out. He had just been screwing with her and was totally fine.


When talking about the hardest scene, Katrina said that she couldn’t get through a stoic, serious scene because Katie Cassidy couldn’t pronounce Nanda Parbat and kept saying “Amanda Poor Butt” and Katrina kept laughing.


Katie showing off her muscles. It also has to be noted that Willa Holland is a delightful creature and had the entire room cracking up!

The Flash Panel!

(Carlos Valdes, Danielle Panabaker, Teddy Sears and Robbie Amell)

Everybody cheering for Carlos Valdes, because he is the BEST.





Most of the audience questions were for Carlos. Carlos talked about how he didn’t realize his character was going to be Vibe eventually and he loves it!


Hmmmm. Teddy said that he has no idea who is in the iron mask. Does that mean it’s not Jay like most fans think? Every mystery person on The Flash is Jay right? Jay is always the answer folks! He also starts talking about Jay’s doppelganger in the park in Earth 1 when he talks about Zoom. All very curious.


Who’s really in the iron mask? Robbie insists that its him. Everyone agreed that Robbie’s character dies way too often! He is the “Kenny” of Arrow (the character on South Park that is killed every episode).

The Green Arrow Panel!

(Stephen Amell)


Fans went crazy for Mr. Queen and lots of great questions.


Like what was his most embarrassing moment? He dropped Katie Cassidy when carrying her to bed. Yowza.


Stephen’s favorite pizza? Margarita. He’s classy like that folks.

Last but not least, the Gotham Panel!

(David Mazouz and Sean Pertwee)


David was beyond charming in this panel! He spoke about how he tries to make Bruce Wayne his own, but definitely looks to past Batmans for inspiration.


What an amazing day!
