There’s still a great deal of mystery around The Flash Season 3, not the least of which will finally introduce Mirror Master, and return an old friend. Or is that foe?

Arrow Season 5 has made clear enough its intent for Oliver to build a new team of heroes, one we thought an some point to include Colton Haynes’ Roy Harper.

As you can see in these new images from Doctor Strange, the transformation should be rather enlightening.
Even as Marvel’s Netflix Punisher spinoff may take a backseat to Iron Fist and The Defenders until 2018, fans knew as early as Daredevil Season 2 what Marvel character Frank Castle might seek out next. So it may be, as reports suggest Netflix’s Punisher has begun preliminary casting for a role of Micro-importance.
The fastest man alive and the, uh, robotiest man alive? (Sorry, I don’t know Cyborg’s tagline. Does he have one? I don’t think he’s ever gotten one. The robotiest man alive works, I think.)
‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ is officially in production and we finally have our first look at Spidey hanging around, literally.
