‘The Flash’ Gets a Costume Adjustment for Season 2

the flash

Clothes make the man, so they say, and a number of TV super men are getting a fashion fix for the upcoming TV season. Chief among them is The Flash, the Fastest Man Alive is getting a new look for the fall, one that aligns a bit more to his comic book origins, if you care about that sort of thing. Of course, when we last left the Flash he had some much bigger concerns than clothing, like a giant black hole forming above Central City following the defeat of the main villain, and the death of an important supporting character, but seeing as how this is a superhero drama we’re talking about, the state of costume comes a close second place.

If you’ve been keeping track of the DC television universe, then it’s likely that you haven’t been disappointed by either Flash or Arrow. A combination of good writing, excellent casting and a commitment to keeping it comic book-y enough for the fanboys has made both of these shows successful enough to warrant continued seasons. When October rolls around, they’ll be coming back and it seems as if The Flash will be facing off against yet even more villains during the next run – Lewis Snart and Atom Smasher. (more…)

John Constantine

If you’re still hoping for NBC‘s Constantine to be picked up by someone else for a second season, I think it’s time that you make peace with the idea that its not coming back as an ongoing series. I know, it’s the one blemish on another wise sterling year for comic book TV, but sadly, the time for Constantine as a series has come and gone. However, that’s not to say that this is the last of Constantine as a character, even in the form of actor Matt Ryan. A producer on Arrow recently opened up the possibility that the master of the dark arts might make his way to Starling City and the Arrow Cave (wherever that may be when season four begins). (more…)

This past weekend at San Diego Comic Con, there was loads of insight into the new seasons of Arrow and The Flashcasting announcements, new costumes, sizzle reels, the works – but the treatment for one show was somewhat lighter by comparison. Sadly, there was no new footage from Legends of Tomorrow, perhaps because the show hasn’t started shooting yet, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t opportunity for more promotion. So let’s call this a remix. A very creative re-edit of the history of the DC Comics TV-Universe so far with a bit of that old comic book style thrown in. Green Arrow, the Flash, Atom, Firestorm and the rest of the gang are here to get you caught up on what happens Tomorrow. (more…)

SDCC15: Suit Up! Check Out ‘Arrow’s New Outfit

Arrow-Al-Sah-Him-5

Just when you think you’re out, they pull you back in. Of course, you didn’t really think Arrow was out, did you? Oliver Queen may have hung up his quiver at the end of season three, but since the CW renewed the show for a fourth season, it opened the inevitable return of the Emerald Archer to punish those that have failed Starling City. But since they made a pretty big deal about Oliver walking away, he’s going to need an outfit that says, “Yeah, I quit, but now I’m back and I mean business.” Et voila! This evening, the new Arrow outfit was revealed to the crowd come to hear about Arrow at San Diego Comic Con. (more…)

Neal McDonough is one of those actors, one of those “where do I know him from?” actors. He was one of the Band of Brothers, he was M.Bison in the ill-advised Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li, he was Lt. Hawke in Star Trek: First Contact but like all Enterprise helsmen not named ‘Wesley Crusher’ he was doomed from the outset. More recently, and perhaps more famously, McDonough has taken up the role of “Dum Dum” Dugan, one of the Howling Commandos from Captain America: The First Avenger and Agent Carter. Well now it seems like McDonough is going from hero to villain. He will be playing the mysterious part of Damien Darhk, the big bad of Arrow‘s fourth season. (more…)

If you’re into hot weather, pool time fun, and family vacations then Summer is pretty great. For the rest of us, though, it means a hiatus from our favorite shows. In the case of CW’s The Flash, Arrow, Supernatural, and iZombie being in-between seasons right now, weeknights have been void of nerd-er-tainment. Nothing to do except *gasp* eat dinner with the fam and socialize in the real world. My god, when are these shows coming back!?

The CW fall schedule has just been announced! The network will launch its 2015-16 season in October. Click on through to get the premier dates.   (more…)

‘Flash’ News: DVD Specs and Joe Gets a New Partner

Season-Two-The-Flash

So you’re partner shot himself to prevent his evil descendent from being born and coming back in time to kill all your friends… Just another day in the Central City Police Department (and another Tuesday night on The Flash). So with the, uh, departure of Detective Eddie Thawne (and the actor who played him Rick Cosnett), there’s a hole in the roster of the CCPD. Detective Joe West is going to need a new partner in order to keep all those meta-human criminals in check. A leak has given a hint at just who that new detective might be, and at the same time, Warner Bros. has released the cover art and technical specs for the first season of the show when it comes out on DVD and Blu-ray later this year.

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…)
