DC’s Legends of Tomorrow is amping up for it’s second season this autumn, and more information is trickling out to let fans know about what they can expect to see. The show, which was created as a spinoff to both Arrow and The Flash, gives spotlight to superheroes (and, well, supervillains turned super-anti-heroes) who were not the center stage of the previous two shows, including The ATOM (Brandon Routh), Captain Cold (Wentworth Miller), Heatwave (Dominic Purcell), White Canary (Caity Lotz), Firestorm (Franz DramehVictor Garber), and Hawkgirl (Ciara Renée). They are brought together as a team by Rip Hunter (Arthur Darvill), as they travel through time fighting evil that threatens the fabric of reality. The concept will be expanded upon in season two, and a few faces familiar to comic fans will be appearing. (more…)


It’s coming down to crunch time for both of the CW‘s flagship superhero series, Arrow and The Flash. Both shows are two-thirds over for the season, and major plot points have been revealed as the pieces have started to be arranged for what’s sure to be seminal, cataclysmic season finales. There’s the rub, obviously the shows want to keep their secrets close, but they both shoot outside on the occasionally, but rarely, mean streets of Vancouver, where sharp-eyed shutter bugs can catch site of superhero doings in progress if they’re quick enough, and/or lucky enough. Making the rounds on the internet this morning is what might be a look at the epic fight that will cap The Flash’s first season, and this should go without saying, but spoilers are ahead. (more…)


When we last saw Barry and Co., there was plenty left up in the air for audiences to muse over during The Flash’s short hiatus.  Firestorm had learned to live with both halves of the whole and headed out of town to learn how to either control or eradicate his (their) new abilities; not only has Barry decided that he will change the future so that he can change his past (pretty sure Doctor Emmitt Brown would be COMPLETELY against this) but it was finally confirmed that Dr. Wells is indeed the man in the yellow suit, though, this did not necessarily mean that he is a bad guy; and in one of the coolest scenes of the season, Gorilla Grodd finally made his small screen debut in all his glory.  This week’s episode, Out of Time, managed to avoid deflating in the shadow of the previous episode and, instead, grew into The Flash’s strongest episode to date. Major spoilers ahead.  Seriously, if you haven’t seen this week’s episode, you owe it to yourself to walk away now. You have been warned. (more…)


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…)


The Flash returns tonight (fiiiiiiiinally) on the CW, and while the new episode called “Return of the Rogues” refers specifically to Captain Cold (Wentworth Miller) and Heat Wave (Dominic Purcell), the rogue that really has fans curious is The Man in the Yellow Suit, AKA: Reverse-Flash. Who is he? Why did he – apparently – go back in time to kill Barry Allen’s mom and frame his dad for it? Both good questions, and ones that I think will be answered to some degree by the end of the first season. Every fan has their theory, but now The Flash himself, actor Grant Gustin, says to throw those theories out the window because even he was surprised by what’s coming with this season’s end. (more…)
