Saturday was DC Entertainment day at SDCC, and there was plenty of Flash-related television news. (See these links if you missed the Justice League teaser or The Flash sizzle reel!) Spoilers for next season of The Flash and Legends Of Tomorrow behind the jump.
The DC TV panels are still going on at SDCC, so I have a fair bit to write up. But first off, here’s the first look at next season of The Flash, showing us the world of Flashpoint. And there’s a hint of at least one major villain we haven’t seen before, one that was announced today.
What do you think of the teaser? Who else is excited for season three?
Warner Brothers has released a special teaser for the Justice League movie at Comic-Con, and you can watch it now on YouTube. Co-starring Ezra Miller as the Flash (among others, including Jason Momoa as Aquaman), it gives us our first look at what the film will be like. Check it out!
The movie is due out in November 2017. What do you think of Miller’s Barry Allen, and the tone of the teaser in general? Interested in the film itself? Feel free to share your thoughts here!
Flash writer Joshua Williamson revealed some new information about the book at the Justice League Rebirth panel today at Comic-Con International.
His original plan was to pare things down to just one speedster, Barry Allen, but as he kept working on it, he realized it would be better to go the other way: Introduce lots of speedsters and show what makes Barry unique.
S.T.A.R. Labs has set up a training facility for the new speedsters. CBR has serveral art pages showing more than a dozen speedsters-in-training.
In addition to his friend August from the police force, two women named Mina and Avery will be working with the Flash.
There are no plans to bring Harrison Wells or other elements of the TV show at this time. (While S.T.A.R. Labs hasn’t been a big part of the New 52 Flash series, it’s been part of the DCU for decades.)
He also touched on what we already know about Godspeed — that he’s a villain who goes around killing other speedsters — and Kid Flash — that we’ll see younger Wally West’s journey toward becoming the hero seen in teasers for the new Teen Titans series.
The DC Collectibles panel at Comic-Con International unveiled some new Flash statues coming up, including a new wave of DC Bombshells statues and a statue inspired by Francis Manapul’s artwork as part of the DC Designers series. The Bombshell Flash statue is based on the Flash #32 variant cover by Ant Lucia.
DC posted photos of a number of their statues on Twitter: Continue reading
