The Flash comes back to The CW next month. If you remember the season finale the mysterious woman that had appeared throughout the season was revealed to be the future daughter of Barry Allen and Iris West-Allen, Nora West-Allen. Some photos have shown Nora in her costume with a different symbol on her chest. But it is definitely looking nice.
We are still getting a solo film based on the scarlet speedster. The Flash as it will now be named and not Flashpoint as previously called, is currently getting an overhaul in its script by directors John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein. The two directors were finally locked in after much shuffling around in the directors chair position.
Currently there is no solid release nor shooting expectation date but Kiersey Clemons who was set to play Iris West has chimed in about a potential timetable. Yes. What I will say is that [Warner Bros. gets] to approve every job that I do and, so far, I’m not doing Flash for the rest of the year, we know that. I’m doing other things. But let’s hope for 2019.”
It seems as if Warner Bros may end up trying to rush production to hopefully shoot for a
possible 2020 release. But something says this is not what fans may want to hear even though they have been wanting the solo Flash project to hit the big screen.
The Season Four finale of The Flash left us open to some possiblities moving forward. First we saw….oh yeah spoilers ahead, we saw the team defeat The Thinker and in the process getting Ralph Dibny back as part of the team. We also got the official confirmation that the mystery woman who turned out to be a speedster is actually Nora Allen, the daughter of Barry and Iris from the future.
Now thanks to a casting breakdown from ThatHashtagShow.com we may have an idea as to who will be the main foe for Team Flash as they head into their fifth season.
The show is casting for a character named Desmond Paull, which is more than likely a code name but check out the breakdown
“An open ethnicity role for a man in his 40s. “Desmond” is a meta-human who, after a mysterious interaction with dark matter, was given not only immortality but also the gift to disable other meta-human powers. He blames metas for everything that has gone wrong in his life and because of that, his mission is to wipe Central City free of them in order to silence his own anguish. Whoever gets cast as “Desmond”, he would be a one year fractional series regular.”
Now of course Desmond Paullis not the characters name. It seems as if the Flash’s foe will be David Hersch a.k.a. Cicada! Cicada was created by Geoff Johns, he first appeared in Flash #170 (volume 2) in March 2001, as he got his powers when being struck by a bolt of lightning while trying to end his own life. So we wont see him develop his abilities from a particle accelerator explosions as most of the meta-humans in Central City have. This is after having murdered his own wife. Cicada strongly believed that he and the scarlet speedster were somehow connected, due to the fact that they gained powers by similar events.
In the comics Hersch also forms the Cicada cult. The cult’s followers carried out the mission to kill anyone that The Flash had saved. To carry this mission out they would use daggers that would be shaped like lightning bolts to murder these people. Its kind of necessary to point out as well that Cicada is one of Wally West’s villains when he was carrying the mantle of the Flash. But the story line can work just as well with this version of the Flash, Barry Allen
The dampening of other meta-humans’ abilities definitely seems to be a creative choice for the character as it does not directly mention the usage of the lightning bolts but that may change. Also having someone who wants to punish the meta-humans in Central City, is a great way to set up the big bad being Cicada….if it is indeed him.
Now that we have a clue as to who MIGHT be the main bad guy, let us know if you have any suggestions as to who you would like in the role.
Could the scarlet speedster become the victim of a jackhammer? This is a question we will get the answer to because the WWE’s own superhero, Goldberg will be appearing on two upcoming episodes of CW’s The Flash.
The former WWE Universal Champion confirmed this himself via his Twitter.
Goldberg is not the first WWE Superstar to grace the ARROWVERSE. After his Summer Slam encounter with Arrow’s Stephen Smell, Cody Rhodes appeared on the show as the character Stardust (a nod to his WWE persona at the time).
Does this mean that Goldberg will potentially one of the new Metahumans created by the dark matter that struck the bus as part of a grand scheme by The Thinker? Will he be an adversary for Team Flash or Will he be a new barista at Jitters?
Guess we all just have to wait and see.
When season 3 of THE Flash ended we knew that Julian Albert would still be part of Team Flash, even though Julian’s love Caitlin has fled into the wind. But now we are not too sure of his future.
According to Entertainment Weekly, Tom Felton won’t be returning for The Flash season 4, neither as a series regular nor as a guest star.
Tom joined the show as a series regular in season three, after the Flashpoint arc, as Julian Albert, Barry’s CSI lab partner who, among other things, became the love interest for Caitlin.
This past weekend, when the trailer for season 4 was revealed at San Diego Comic-Con, his absence was notorious, with his character missing from the footage and Felton himself absent from the panel.
Nothing has been said about Julian’s fate (but is clear that as of this moment Felton has not booked to return to the show), so whatever is in the future for Team Flash and why is Julian absent from season 4 will have to wait until its premiere.
Looks like your Trusty Sidekicks will be still be in business throughout this tv season and next.
The CW has renewed seven of its series for the 2017-18 season, Variety has learned.
The network has doled out early renewals to all its comic book franchises (“Arrow,” “D.C.’s Legends of Tomorrow,” “The Flash,” “Supergirl”) and to “Jane the Virgin,” “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend,” and “Supernatural.” The CW will also resurrect DC’s “Constantine” as an animated series starring the voice of Matt Ryan on digital outlet CW Seed, produced by Greg Berlanti.
“Over the past several seasons, The CW has built a schedule of proven performers, from our lineup of DC superheroes, to critically acclaimed comedies, to sci-fi dramas,” said CW president Mark Pedowitz. “Early pickups of these seven series now allow our producers to plan ahead for next season, and gives us a solid base to build on for next season, with original scripted series to roll out all year long.”
Denizens of the CW network’s Arrowverse — the fictional universe that encompasses the CW television shows “Arrow,” “The Flash,” “Legends of Tomorrow” and now “Supergirl” — have seen a lot in their time, but nothing quite like Kara Zor-El, Supergirl. The network is planning a massive crossover event for this fall, though, so some viewers are naturally curious about how the only bonafide alien in the crew is going to be received.
According to a report from Entertainment Weekly, Supergirl — the orphan Kryptonian played by Melissa Benoist — is greeted with a mix of intrigue and uncertainty by her peers. And then she starts flying around.
“Some people, like Barry [Grant Gustin], already know her, so Barry’s completely cool with her,” said “Supergirl” executive producer Andrew Kreisberg. “Some people are instantly charmed by her; I think Sara’s [Caity Lotz] got a little crush on her. Diggle [David Ramsey], as always, just when he thinks he’s seen it all, there’s a moment in it where somebody says, ‘This is Supergirl,’ and they say, ‘What’s so super about her?’ and she just lifts off the ground. Dig’s like, ‘I’m convinced.’”
Despite “Supergirl” only recently making the jump from CBS to the CW, the character is already a known quantity to some in the Arrowverse. Last year Grant Gustin, who plays the lead speedster “The Flash,” guest starred on an episode of “Supergirl.” It was Supergirl’s induction into the CW’s Arrowverse.
Details surrounding the crossover remain scarce, although it is known that the villains of the event will be the Dominators. The crossover is expected to air in December.
Tomorrow (Tuesday) we get the first episode of season 3 of The Flash. In the trailer it was shown that Wally West will be suiting up as a speedster. But, if you remember he is not the only one that will have some new powers.
A new logline got released for the third season and it shows that Jesse Quick will have the same speed like Barry Allen and Wally West. To make it all better, she became a hero on Earth-2! Read the logline here:
“Barry (Grant Gustin) and Team Flash are thrilled to reunite with Earth-2 Wells (Tom Cavanagh) and Jesse (guest star Violett Beane),” reads the logline. “Wells confides to Barry and Caitlin (Danielle Panabaker) that Jesse has all the powers of a speedster and has been saving people on his Earth. He is concerned about her safety and wants them to talk her out of using her powers. Meanwhile, Magenta, (guest star Joey King) a new meta who can control metal, terrorizes the city.”
The Flash returns this Tuesday on The CW!
“Arrow” star Stephen Amell tweeted out this epic pic which may be a precursor of things to come on the EPIC 4-night crossover event featuring all of the shows within the “Arrow-verse” (Arrow, The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow and Supergirl).
Now its way too early for them to be filming those particular episodes. So this may mean a select handful of heroes have been brought together for something (a photoshoot most likely) before that all goes down.
As seen above , Stephen Amell has shared an image of some famous feet as we see the footwear worn by Oliver Queen, The Flash (Grant Gustin), Supergirl (Melissa Benoist), White Canary (Caity Lotz), and The Atom (Brandon Routh). This is a pretty fun tease of what’s to come on The CW, and with any luck, we’ll get to see what this impressive group were brought together for sooner rather than later.
