With San Diego Comic-Con finally upon us, we at Speed Force figured it would be a good idea to give you all a quick heads up about what to expect and to look for if you are fortunate enough to be heading to San Diego this weekend.
First off I have to say that it looks like Funko is definitely vying for the title of most convention exclusives ever! From a list of at least 50 Funko products available this year, we are coming away with 2 Flash-related exclusives.
This episode gives us the return of Captain Cold and the first Rogues mini-team-up of the series, as Heat Wave joins Len (in an interesting twist, these two are played by the same actors who played the brothers in “Prison Break”). Captain Cold wants to draw out and eliminate the Flash, knowing that Flash remains the one force who can stop his criminal plans. Meanwhile, Barry continues his training in an effort to get “up to speed” to challenge the Reverse Flash, and Iris prepares to move in with Eddie. All this, and more, in Episode 110 of THE FLASH!
The Flash TV show returns tonight, and it’s double trouble for the Flash with Captain Cold and Heat Wave!
DC adds three more Silver Age issues from 1962 to their digital backlist (ComiXology and other platforms) on Wednesday: The Flash #131, 132 and #133. Stories include a team-up with Green Lantern and the infamous Abra Kadabra story, “Plight of the Puppet-Flash”
Captain Cold debuts in episode four, and is played by Wenworth Miller. Amusingly, the two actors last worked together on the show Prison Break, where they played brothers…appropriate given the almost sibling rivalry that Heat Wave and Captain Cold tend to display. (via Flash TV News)
