It was just announced tonight that there’s a new CW spin-off television series in the works, one which apparently includes Captain Cold (Wentworth Miller), Martin Stein (Victor Garber), Ray Palmer (Brandon Routh), and Caity Loitz (who played Sara Lance/Black Canary). As reported by TV Line, it’s some kind of “superhero team-up” series. So maybe it’ll expand on the characters, with an episode here and there dedicated to Cold, and another to Martin Stein, and another to Ray Palmer, and so on. Or maybe they really will team up for other adventures. I’m really surprised and confused by this, but also pretty excited, because it’d be great to see the secondary characters in these shows fleshed out a bit more. Obviously the main series are dedicated to Barry Allen and Oliver Queen, but now we’ll see some new focus on the popular-but-side-characters the shows have introduced.
Spoilers for the next Flash episode behind the jump.
Also, the official synopsis has been released for the next episode of The Flash. It will air March 17th.
“Out Of Time” — (8:00-9:00 p.m. ET) (TV-PG, DV) (HDTV)
LIAM MCINTYRE GUEST STARS AS THE WEATHER WIZARD; CISCO REALIZES DR. WELLS IS HIDING SOMETHING — Mark Mardon aka The Weather Wizard (guest star Liam McIntyre) appears in Central City intent on avenging his brother Clyde’s death, and sets his sights on Joe (Jesse L. Martin), who shot Clyde. When Mardon attacks Joe and Barry (Grant Gustin), Barry is able to super-speed them to safety but Mardon gets away. Barry warns Joe not to go after a meta-human alone but Joe doesn’t listen and ends up in grave danger. Meanwhile, Cisco (Carlos Valdes) looks into the night the team captured the Reverse Flash and realizes something doesn’t add up and begins to wonder whether Joe was right about Dr. Wells (Tom Cavanagh). Barry and Linda (guest star Malese Jow) end up on an awkward double date with Eddie (Rick Cosnett) and Iris (Candice Patton). Thor Freudenthal directed the episode written by Todd Helbing & Aaron Helbing (#115). Original airdate 3/17/2015
