Flash Odds And Ends

Category: Media — By

Jay Garrick promo The CW has released a new promotional image for The Flash‘s second season, this one featuring the famed helmet of Jay Garrick. It serves as a helpful reminder of the season premiere date and the day/time the show airs.

Entertainment Weekly tells us that Malese Jow (Linda Park) will be back for the second season, although as of yet there aren’t many details about her role. It’d be interesting if the article’s reference to Wally is a hint, though, because Keiynan Lonsdale (Wally West) is about the same age as Jow and it’d be entirely feasible if their characters started dating. And Entertainment Weekly also has a brief snippet of information about Iris’ new role in Season Two. Not surprisingly, her role within Team Flash has changed now that she knows Barry’s secret.

And finally, here’s the latest promo clip for The Flash and Arrow…and it’s surprisingly musical. There are no spoilers, it’s more like a music video.

The premiere is only five weeks away! What are you hoping to see done with Iris and Linda this season?

Australian TV Clip Hints At Something New

Category: Media — By

The Australian TV network Fox 8 has produced a short teaser for the second season of The Flash, and it shows us a seemingly new aspect of Barry Allen’s powers. You can see the video clip and some analysis of it at Movieweb‘s site.

Presumably the energies of the singularity caused this change in Barry’s lightning, and one wonders what else it changed for him and the other characters. What do you think?

Upcoming Flash Books for Early 2016

Category: Flash News — By

The Beat has a round-up of DC Comics books for 2016, including details and release dates for four Flash Collections:

I could swear I remembered seeing something about “The Flash: Silver Age” collection before, but I can’t seem to find it. Maybe I was thinking of last year’s Silver Age Flash Omnibus? In any case, it’s yet another reprint of the early 1950s Flash stories. I’m not sure why they don’t just reprint the Flash Chronicles series, since it seems to be the same material and format.

Presumably this means that Flash: Earth One (JMS) and Multiversity Too: The Flash (Grant Morrison), both announced for 2016, will be later in the year. That makes sense, as DC hasn’t announced an artist yet for either book. (For the record, Morrison & Paquette’s Wonder Woman: Earth One is on the schedule for April.)

Read on for more details.
