Earlier today ‘The Flash’ threw out a second Weather Wizard in the form of ‘Spartacus’ star Liam McIntyre, but why let the bringer of rain have all the fun? The latest 2015 trailer for ‘The Flash’’s return introduces ‘Smash’ star Andy Mientus as DC’s villainous Pied Piper, along with new looks at ‘Prison Break’-ing baddies Captain Cold and Heat Wave.

The Bringer of Rain lives! Where casting ‘Spartacus’ alum in notable DC roles has typically proven ‘Arrow’'s game, ‘The Flash’ seems to have stolen a bit of thunder in landing the man himself. Liam McIntyre has officially been tapped to bring the rain anew as ‘The Flash’'s second incarnation of DC’s Weather Wizard in an upcoming episode.
It’s been a while since we’ve checked in with NBC’s demon-fighting detective ‘Constantine,’ but after successful DC inclusions from the likes of voodoo villain Papa Midnite to The Spectre, the occult comic drama has set out to make a ‘Breaking Bad’ baddie even badder. Tio himself, Mark Margolis will ring ‘Constantine’'s bell as DC villain Felix Faust, but when can we expect him to roll up?
FOX’s ‘Gotham’ detects its eleventh installment in 2015 premiere “Rogues’ Gallery,” as Gordon makes friends and enemies with his new position at Arkham Asylum, Penguin finds himself on the end of a harsh lesson from Maroni, and Selina Kyle takes in an ailing Ivy.
It’s been some time since the proposed CBS ‘Supergirl’ TV series delivered any updates as to its progress, and with 2015 off and running, another new name has hit the skies to fill the boots of Superman’s cousin Kara Zor-El. When last we heard, ‘The Vampire Diaries’ star Claire Holt was in contention for the role, but a new rumor suggests UK actress Gemma Atkinson may be our new ‘Supergirl.’
We’ve had a few weeks to sit on ‘Arrow’'s midseason finale cliffhanger “The Climb,” and while we won’t know the full outcome of Oliver’s duel with Ra’s al Ghul until the latter half of January 2015, Starling City won’t be slacking in the meantime. Get a look at ‘Arrow’'s 2015 return, with the first full synopsis for the DC drama’s 2015 return, “Left Behind!”
It’s been awhile since we’ve had to debate the pitfalls and the promise of FOX’s ‘Gotham,’ but with the second half of its inaugural (and surely not final) season kicking off in early January, it’s time to shine a pre-Bat-signal on the newest episodes. Head inside Arkham Asylum with the first photos and clips from ‘Gotham’'s 2015 premiere “Rogues’ Gallery,” featuring ‘Firefly’ favorite Morena Baccarin!
When Warner Bros. announced their big slate of upcoming DC superhero films a few months ago, we all pretty much assumed that these movies and characters would operate in a shared universe. Given the ‘Justice League’ connection, how could they not? What we haven’t been clear on is whether some of the other DC heroes, like Shazam and Guillermo del Toro’s ‘Dark Universe’ characters, would also inhabit the same universe. As if sensing the little question marks over our heads, DC Comics has confirmed what we all assumed: Yes, their WB superhero movies will operate in a shared universe.
It’s a debate that has literally raged on for decades. Who would win in a fight: the heroes of the Marvel comic book universe or the heroes of DC Comics? It’s mostly been a theoretical debate. Even a handful of special events over the years that saw both companies come together to pit their characters against one another have done little to solve things. This eternal, burning question is the inspiration behind a new fan-made trailer for a movie that will never, ever exist: ‘Marvel vs DC.’
We weren’t surprised to see ‘The Flash’ taking care of ‘Arrow’ cousin and ‘Tomorrow People’ castoff Robbie Amell after the latter’s cancellation, but it seems yet another evolved human will make their way to Central City as well. Peyton List will appear in an upcoming 2015 episode of ‘The Flash,’ playing none other than Captain Cold’s sister, DC’s “Golden Glider.”
