Flash TV Panel At SDCC

The Flash panel just wrapped up at SDCC, and there were a few new juicy details. It’s been confirmed that the Thinker is the major villain of Season Four, and he’ll be played by The 100 actor Neil Sandilands. His sidekick/assistant, known as the Mechanic, will be played by Kim Engelbrecht. Probably the most surprising cast news, however, is that famed movie actor Danny Trejo will be playing Cynthia (Gypsy)’s dad Breacher. It’s not known how much of a role he’ll have, but he’s a pretty big name for the show.

A few details here and there about the coming season:

*There will be more crossovers.
*The show isn’t doing time travel in Season Four, partly because of how complicated Savitar was.
*There are so many different versions of Harrison Wells we could potentially see. Possibly even a version of Wells who is Johnny Quick.
*The tone of the show will be lighter this season (although I believe they said that last year).
*Grant Gustin does indeed appear this season.
*Iris is leading Team Flash during Barry’s absence.
*Joe and Cecile’s relationship will get more serious.
*There’ll be more of Cisco and Cynthia.
*There was seemingly no mention of Julian Albert nor actor Tom Felton.

And here’s the sizzle reel for the fourth season, which showcases Iris’ important role.

Warner Brothers Announces Live Action Flashpoint Film

Newsarama reports that there was an announcement of a live action Flashpoint film at the WB SDCC panel today. There are no details as of yet, but it’s a very interesting concept; readers may recall there was an animated film of the story called Justice League: Flashpoint Paradox a few years ago, and of course The Flash TV series recently did a version of it too, so it’s a bit of a surprise to learn it will be told in the DC cinematic universe as well. Thus, it’ll be interesting to see what will be done with it and why the WB movieverse wants to tell that story already. Newsarama speculates it has something to do with the rumours of Ben Affleck leaving the cinematic universe, but that’s all unverified as of now.

New Justice League Teaser

And shortly after seeing the new Justice League poster, WB has released a new teaser for the film. It’s about four minutes long, and includes mostly new footage and some good bits with the Flash. Plus, the first look at Steppenwolf in action, and a hint at Superman’s return! Check it out.

The film will be released on November 17, 2017. What do you think of the teaser? Are you liking what we’ve seen of the movieverse Flash so far?

New Justice League Movie Poster

It wouldn’t be SDCC without some DC film news, so the company has released a new poster for the upcoming Justice League movie. It’s got a nice shot of the team (minus Superman), and it’s neat how the text has incorporated all of their symbols.

The film is due out on November 17, 2017, so it’s not far away now. What do you think of the poster?

Flash TV Tidbits

Season 4 of The Flash began filming recently, and bits of news are already beginning to trickle out. Here’s a brief roundup of some interesting new details.

The Thinker has apparently been confirmed as the main villain for the fourth season, and he’ll seemingly have a female sidekick called the Mechanic. And we’ll be seeing Ralph Dibny as a regular guest-star this season, with the potential to be a series regular later on. For those new to the Elongated Man (Ralph), he debuted in the Flash series during the Silver Age, and became a friend and colleague of Barry Allen and later Wally West. Ralph was briefly name-dropped during first season as somebody who’d died in the incident with the particle accelerator, but he or perhaps a counterpart from another Earth obviously survived.

Sterling Gates has joined the writing crew for the series. Among other comic book work (such as Supergirl), he wrote the Flashpoint: Kid Flash Lost mini-series in 2011.

And, weirdly, we’ve seen a Samuroid on set during the filming of the first episode. Plus Keiynan Lonsdale (Kid Flash) in the Flash suit. An interesting choice for an antagonist, and an obvious choice for the speedster to step in while Barry’s in the Speed Force. It’s not yet clear how long Barry will be gone.

“Finish Line” Images

The season finale of The Flash airs this week, so the final fight with Savitar and Killer Frost is coming down to the wire. The CW has released a new poster for the episode “Finish Line” (which you can see at left), and some still images from the finale as well. The images are available at BeautifulBallad.org.

It was announced recently that the show will remain in its usual day and timeslot next season, while Arrow will be moved to Thursdays at 9 PM.

Looking forward to the finale? What do you hope to see happen in it, and then beyond into Season Four?
