A Surprise Appearance In The CW Crossover

The annual CW DCTV crossover won’t air until December, but it’s currently being filmed and story details are slowly beginning to trickle out. This year’s theme is “Elseworlds”. As you can see from the poster, Barry Allen and Oliver Queen will be swapping superhero identities, but that isn’t the only Flash-related surprise from the story. See the photo below, though be mindful of spoilers.


As can be seen here, John Wesley Shipp is back as the `90s Flash. It isn’t known how much he’ll be appearing in the story or what exactly he’ll be doing, but it’s great to see him back in the role and the suit again.

The crossover episodes will air from December 9th to 11th this year, and will include The Flash, Arrow, and Supergirl.

Arrowverse Crossover Villain: Dr. John Deegan of Arkham Asylum

The December 2018 crossover between Arrow, Flash and Supergirl will focus on Gotham City (it’s not clear which universe, but I’d guess Supergirl’s), feature Superman and the Flash together, and introduce both Batwoman and Lois Lane.

Now we have a villain: Jeremy Davies will be playing Dr. John Deegan of Arkham Asylum, who “might just be crazier than the inmates he treats.”

He sounds like a new character.

But I wonder if he’s an adaptation of Doctor Destiny, aka John Dee?

Good casting in either case!

First Look At New CW Flash Costume

The CW has released a poster showing the new Flash costume we’ll be seeing in the series’ fifth season. The most notable change is the lack of a chinstrap, though there are other differences too; the fabric doesn’t look the same, and it has a new texture. And Barry’s looking a lot more world-weary here than he has in seasons past, which is interesting.

I didn’t like the chinstrap when the show debuted, but the funny thing is that now the costume looks weird to me without it. I’ll probably get used to it eventually, however.

What do other viewers think of the new costume? Are you liking Barry’s new cowl and other outfit details, or are they not to your taste? Share your thoughts here!

Season Five Flash Teaser Released At SDCC

It’s San Diego Comic Con weekend, and as always, Saturday is the day for major media presentations. DC released trailers for Aquaman and Shazam today, and showed trailers for all of its CW superhero shows. You can see the teaser-trailer for The Flash series right here.

As you can see here, we get an old-school Flash ring in the teaser, and a very good look at young Nora Allen. She’s called XS, which is obviously a nod to Barry and Iris’ superhero granddaughter in the comics; here she’s their daughter (or at least says she is).

We also get an extended look at a villain, who is apparently Cicada. You may recall him as a villain from the Geoff Johns era, and he’s got his lightning-shaped knife in the teaser. He will be played by Chris Klein (American Pie) this season.

What did you think of the trailer? Did it catch your interest, and are you looking forward to Cicada or XS? Feel free to share your thoughts!

Flash Movie Looks Back to the Future, Season 5 Cast Changes

There’s been a lot of DC and Warner Bros-related news over the last few days: the AT&T/Time Warner merger approved, Diane Nelson departing DCE, Geoff Johns leaving his executive positions to focus on writing and producing, and now a new movie strategy as reported by THR.

John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein (Spider-Man: Homecoming, Game Night) are the latest directors attached to the Flash movie, which is now scheduled to go into production with Ezra Miller in 2019. THR says they are “looking to Back to the Future as a touchstone” as far as tone is concerned — and refers to the movie as The Flash, rather than Flashpoint. Whether that’s simple shorthand or a deliberate title change is unclear, but they seem to be going for something a bit less grim than the original Flashpoint. No word on whether Wonder Woman and Cyborg are still involved.

As for the small screen, we don’t know much about The Flash Season Five, but we do know that after half a season on Legends of Tomorrow, Keiynan Lonsdale’s Wally West is leaving the show. He’s set to be in the Season 5 premiere of The Flash, but won’t be returning as a regular on either series. In a message on Instagram, he explains that it was his decision to move on, but that it’s “not a total goodbye” — “Wally West will still be round when you need him the most!”

Update: Literally 5 minutes after posting this, I saw that Danielle Nicolet (D.A. Cecile Horton) is being promoted to series regular next year.

Update 2: Hartley Sawyer (Ralph Dibny) has also been promoted to regular for season five.

Update 3: Jessica Parker Kennedy, who plays the future Nora West-Allen (Iris & Barry’s daughter), is also going to be a regular.

“We Are The Flash” Trailer

Here’s the extended trailer for next week’s episode of The Flash, titled “We Are The Flash”. It’s the finale for the show’s fourth season.

And here’s the official synopsis for the episode, which seems to be keeping details deliberately vague.

“We Are The Flash”
SEASON FINALE — Team Flash gets help from a surprising ally in their battle against DeVoe (Neil Sandilands). David McWhirter directed the episode written by Todd Helbing & Eric Wallace (#423). Original airdate 5/22/2018.

We’re promised the answer to a few mysteries in the episode. What do you hope to see in it?
