Previews are up for tomorrow’s releases of Flash #3 at Multiversity Comics and Titans #1 at Comic Book.com.

“The Return of Wally West” Part 1: After an old ally returns to the team, the Titans set their sights on a dangerous enemy with the power to change reality itself! But the Titans have never faced a threat this massive before, and with so much on the line, will they be able to stand united as a team? Or will their past mistakes be their undoing?

Flash Movie Casts Kiersey Clemons as Iris West

Variety reports that Warner Bros has cast Kiersey Clemons as the female lead in the Flash movie opposite Ezra Miller. Clemons most recently appeared in Neighbors 2, and was featured in Flash director Rick Famuyiwa’s breakout indie film, Dope. She’s also been cast in a remake of Flatliners.

Technically,  WB hasn’t confirmed that the female lead is in fact Iris West, but it’s a safe enough bet that Variety ran with it in their headline.

First Look At Flash Season Three

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?

SDCC Sneak Peek At The Justice League Movie

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 & SDCC Day 2 – New Speedsters at STAR Labs

Flash writer Joshua Williamson revealed some new information about the book at the Justice League Rebirth panel today at Comic-Con International.

Highlights from Newsarama’s liveblog and CBR’s liveblog (head over to those sites to read more):

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.
