Both Diggle and King Shark are Returning to ‘The Flash’

TheFlash_KingShark_1

The Flash has done some pretty ballsy things in its year-and-a-half on the air: it embraced time travel, the multiverse, doppelgangers, Gorilla Grodd, and Barry’s sometimes cavalier attitude about keeping his secret identity. Then, in season two’s fourth episode, “The Fury of Firestorm,” The Flash team went and introduced King Shark into the mix, and it was glorious (at least for the whole two minutes King Shark was on screen before being incapacitated by Harrison Wells from Earth 2). If you were one of those people wanting more King Shark, you’re in luck, because he’s coming back later this season on The Flash, but the Scarlet Speedster’s going to need some help from a member of Team Arrow to take him down.

Superhero-Fight-Club-The-Flash-poster

I’m sure you all saw The Flash season premiere last night, but in the off chance you’re saving it for the weekend, or a rainy day, or whatever, we won’t talk about the spoiler-y implications till after the “Read more…” thing. If you came to this article via social media and don’t want to be spoiled – LEAVE NOW! – because this article is about a plot detail that emerged about 15 minutes into last night’s premiere. A development that has a big impact on more than one Flash character, and promises grand implications going forward. And for those of you who know what I mean, you should realize that the executive producer of the show says don’t worry. The end is not always the end. (more…)

Season-Two-The-Flash

Now that we’ve gotten Arrow out of the way, let’s talk about his fast moving colleague, The Flash. Yes, The Flash was also at San Diego Comic Con, and the cast and crew revealed some details about what fans can expect in season 2. First and foremost, obviously, is to resolve that big wormhole over Central City problem that the series left off with. Of course, the Flash will beat the wormhole, and then we’re off to a new season, with new stories, and new characters that will be very familiar to comic book readers and fans of the DC Comics speedster. So who’s coming to Central City next, and be they good or bad? (more…)

Season-Two-The-Flash

How about that Flash season finale, huh? Nerd Bastard Rush Urbalejo dropped his thoughts on last night’s adventure a bit earlier today, but fans are already looking forward to season two of the superhero series, and so are the people behind the TV show from both sides of the camera. Granted, production on the second season doesn’t begin for a couple of months yet, but that doesn’t mean we can’t start teasing fans with the potential implications of last night’s time travel and wormhole-created possibilities. It’s easy to say that The Flash outdid itself in season one, but can it top itself in season two. Not even 24 hours after the show wrapped for the season, all signs point to yes. (more…)

Supergirl-Trailer

It wasn’t surprising that fans seemed more than a little upset after they got a look at CBS‘s first Supergirl trailer. There were quite a number of things that went horribly wrong with that trailer. After watching it a few times I started to see the disconnect that bothered me the most was the background music. It was a horrible mixture of pop music and the standard “slap a song in there” choices that literally sunk that trailer for myself and more than a few fans. Then watched it without sound and found myself seeing things I liked, and those things that had bothered me, suddenly weren’t so bad. Thankfully, after a quick Internet search I found that someone else had beat me to the punch and changed the music, along with more than a few edits to show fans what this series true potential is.

The news that the CW was planning on adding another DC Comics-based showed to its growing pantheon of superhero series hardly came as a surprise, but what was surprising was the scope of this next project. Taking characters from both The Flash and Arrow, as well as DC characters never before portrayed in live-action, and putting them all under one roof, that was true ambition. We’ve been chasing rumors about this show since January, but now there’s confirmation that Legends of Tomorrow will be joining its mates on the CW this coming TV season. And on top of that, one of said Legends will be appearing in season finale of The Flash. (more…)

‘Flash’ and ‘Arrow’ Secrets Revealed at PaleyFest

Arrow-Flash

The CW’s two flagship superhero series return this week with all new episodes, and both The Flash and Arrow have a great many mysteries to unravel for fans before the season’s through. On The Flash, we know that there’s a showdown coming with “the Man in Yellow,” who is much closer than anyone else on Team Flash realizes. As for Arrow, there’s Ra’s al Ghul’s offer to Oliver to take over as leader of the League of Assassins, an offer that Oliver likely can’t refuse. So where do we go from here? What secrets are about to be revealed? Some, if not all, was discussed at PaleyFest this past weekend. Spoilers follow obviously. (more…)

speed-force

If you’re a fan of this site, then you’ve probably heard of the Force, but how about the Speed Force? You may not be so steeped into the comic lore of the original Flash books to know anything about the Speed Force, so you might not have gotten too excited when it was name dropped on last night’s episode of The CW‘s The Flash. That’s okay because executive producer Andrew Kreisberg is going to explain it to us. Out of what have looked like, on the surface, as another “freak of the week” episode, we were instead given a fairly big piece of Flash mythology and it was just dropped in a manner akin to the way we learned what Cisco wore to work on his first day at S.T.A.R. Labs. Spoilers ahead obviously. (more…)

Batman on ‘Arrow’? Possible, If Not Probable

flashvarrow2

Numerous DC Comics characters have put in appearances on the The CW series Arrow in its two-and-a-half years on the air, even if those characters, ostensibly, have not much to do with Green Arrow. In the midst of the weekly adventures of Arrow we’ve met The Flash, Huntress, Black Canary, the Suicide Squad, Amanda Waller, Deathstroke and Ra’s al Ghul. Now, that last one, you may know, is a Batman villain technically, so it begs the question: is it possible that the Dark Knight might ever visit Starling City to be vigilante bros with Oliver Queen? A key producer on Arrow says that he’d love to welcome Batman to the show, but the fact of the matter is it’s highly unlikely that Brave and the Bold style team-up between the two heroes is unlikely.
