Wow! This was a big Comic-Con for Flash news, with the TV series getting ready to go into its second season and a host of new comics projects on the way.
Here’s a link to all the announcements in one place:
TV and Movies
- Season 2 Sizzle Reel – mostly recaps season one, but teases the new villain and a major new guest star for next year.
- Flash at the DCTV Event – Casting for Jay Garrick and Patty Spivot, hints at the new major villain, and lots of news about where the show is going. (Jay Garrick was confirmed the previous day.)
- Legends of Tomorrow video: Hero Evolution featuring Arrow, Flash, and the comic book origins of the various TV characters.
- Vixen First Look features Flash & Arrow
- New Flash Costume on display on the convention floor.
