DC's Legends of Tomorrow

In the finale of The Flash on the CW there was mention of a Rip Hunter. Maker of the first time-ship, this is a setup for DC's newest series to air on the CW. Legends of Tomorrow will gather a bunch of character from both Arrow and The Flash and air during the mid season hiatus in January (while no official airdate has been given).

The CW recently released this extended preview of the new series, based off the shot in Vancouver pilot.

World of Warcraft

The World of Warcraft movie finished shooting in Vancouver a year ago on May 18th, but still won't be released till June 10, 2016. Why such a delay between filming? SFX (Special Effects), and a lot of them. The first picture from that process was release showing the results of Robert Kazinsky's mo-cap work.

Could this be the blockbuster of 2016? Only time will tell.
