Last Monday, actor Dominic Purcell (DC’s Legends of Tomorrow), suffered an accident on the set of the ‘Prison Break’ revival. While filming for Fox’s revival on location in Morocco, an iron bar from from the set became dislodged from above him, fell down and struck him on the head. He received a broken nose and a head injury from the incident. Purcell had been giving fans and friends updates via his official Instagram account. (more…)

In the current TV climate, a spin-off combining characters from The Flash and Arrow in a new show is about as close to a sure thing as you can get. It was a few months ago that the CW first floated the possibility of another show to take place in this small screen DC Comics-universe, which if Supergirl also has tendrils to Arrow et al would make four series part of the same superhero universe on the air. This new CW series though is a bit less straightforward than tagging a new hero and creating a show around them, it’s taking parts from other shows and creating a new series. Kind of Legendary, wouldn’t you say? (more…)

It’s official: I have absolutely no idea what this new entry into the shared Flash and Arrow DC TV universe is supposed to be. Last month it was announced that the CW was producing a spin-off of the superhero series’ combining characters from both shows: Captain Cold (Wentworth Miller) and Martin Stein (Victor Garber) from The Flash, and Ray Palmer (Brandon Routh) and a character TBA (Caity Lotz) from Arrow. It wasn’t too long before Captain Cold’s cohort Heat Wave (Dominic Purcell) was added to the cast with the promise of three more characters to come who have never before been portrayed on TV before, and now we know two: Hawkgirl and Rip Hunter.

With all the ground work being laid in both Arrow and The Flash, introducing new characters who could each lead their own spin-off series, unless the CW wanted to change their name to the DC Network, this was really the only option that made sense. The CW has announced that they’re presently developing a “superhero team-up” spin-off series featuring a ragtag group of actors from both Arrow and The Flash. Currently being developed by DCTV Universe overseers Greg Berlanti, Andrew Kreisberg and Marc Guggenheim, the new show already has a popular quartet of actors apparently signed up to lead team, which will only, undoubtedly, open the door to more spin-off ready characters.

Sometimes the winners of the People’s Choice Awards are programs that don’t exactly appeal to people with – what’s the word I’m looking for – “taste.” But sometimes taste makers and the omnivores of the TV universe agree on something, and this year, that something is the awesomeness of the CW series The Flash. At last night’s ceremony for the People’s Choice Awards (you may have already seen the clip of Captain America Chris Evans helping Betty White to the stage, re-certifying his volunteer merit badge in the process), The Flash beat out some strong competition to win the Favorite New TV Drama award. So the Fastest Man Alive is starting off the year right! Good thing, because as revealed by a new trailer, it’s a villain-palooza for 2015 in Central City. (more…)

This past week during the Television Critics Association Press Tour, Geoff Johns, the executive producer of the new CW superhero series The Flash said that this series, following the weekly adventures of the Scarlet Speedster, would be the most faithful DC Comics-based TV show yet. Well, it wouldn’t be a faithful Flash series without his colorful rogues gallery, so the latest casting news from the show starts to fill out those ranks very early on the series. So who’s coming to take on The Flash? Let’s just say he’s about to put a freeze on Central City. He’s going to make the citizens chill out, and despite the best efforts of the police, they’re not going to put him in the cooler… Sorry. I’ve got a million of these.  (more…)
