Puns aside, The Flash will hit the ground running in its March 17 return, kicking off the first of nine episodes that will bring about some major changes to Barry Allen’s world. New footage and teases from creators at PaleyFest promise more DC villains and time-travel terrors to come, along with new speedsters in Season 2, and the biggest burning question of S.T.A.R. Labs answered.

Ever since The Flash first spied his yellow-suited arch-nemesis Reverse Flash in set photos, we’ve been anxious for a clearer look at the character. We’ve seen the sinister speedster (and his spoilery alter-ego) in several episodes now, but at last The Flash has revealed our first clear look at the Reverse Flash.
The CW’s Arrow still has an “Offer” to mull by his March 18 return, but the next week will see “Suicidal Tendencies” out in force as the squad braces for Diggle’s wedding, and Oliver comes face to face with Ray Palmer in his A.T.O.M. guise. Check out the face-off in the full photo set from March 25 Arrow installment, “Suicidal Tendencies!”
CBS’ upcoming Supergirl TV series took off with the first look at Glee star Melissa Benoist in costume as Kara Zor-El, and with production formally underway, hers isn’t the only look in the public spotlight. See the “Clark Kent” of Kara’s human identity Kara Danvers in new set photos, along with our first look at DC’s new Toyman!
The Flash will cool his heels for at least another week, but the Scarlet Speedster’s March 17 return will be anything but easy, judging by the CW spinoff’s latest trailer. Not only does Star Wars star Mark Hamill reprise his role as DC’s Trickster, but so too do we see The Tomorrow People castoff Peyton List as a new “Rogue,” and Liam McIntyre’s debut as the new Weather Wizard!
Hard as it was to imagine Arrow spawning yet another spinoff for Brandon Routh’s Atom, The CW did fans one better to develop a major team-up series culling players from both Oliver Queen and The Flash’s world. It’s still daunting to think such a major undertaking will come to pass, but the spinoff’s three secret DC heroes may yet have been revealed.
Just as FOX’s Gotham begins to lose a major character with no place in DC comics (or really even the show anymore), a Fox-y new player steps in. Homeland and 12 Years a Slave star Chris Chalk will appear in an upcoming episode as Wayne Enterprises tech genius Lucius Fox, a character who, gosh, might actually seem relevant to the story of a young Bruce Wayne.
Now that production on CBS’ Supergirl series has formally gotten up, up and underaway, our first look at Glee star Melissa Benoist as our new Kara Zor-El has floated safely to Earth. See Supergirl go Man of Steel dark with our first photos of the new CBS series’ costume!
Whatever you make of FOX Bat-prequel Gotham, few would argue that series star Jada Pinkett Smith commits to her role as original gangster Fish Mooney. That commitment may have run out, however, as Smith doesn’t think she’ll return for Season 2 this fall.
Just when you thought CBS’ Supergirl pilot had enough on its plate between Cat Grant, Jimmy Olsen, Cyborg Superman, Toyman, Helen Slater, Dean Cain and one Super-body, the DC drama adds another dose of big bad. Iron Man and Star Trek star Faran Tahir will play the role of a mysterious alien “Commander,” one who sounds suspiciously like…
