Just when you thought you’d had your fill of superheroes at Comic-Con 2016, animated or otherwise, Vixen returns to unite The CW’s DC players once more. Our first look at Season 2 of the animated CW Seed drama brings both Barry Allen and Firestorm into the mix, but who’s the weathered new big bad?
The new Big Bad of the DC Comics Universe is Zack Snyder.
The Flash’s warm “Welcome to Earth-2” gave us a first tease of the upcoming Supergirl crossover, seemingly confirming CBS’ Kara belongs to another universe, but let’s get those crazy kids together already! Grant Gustin to the rescue, releasing the first photo of Barry and Kara hanging out for CBS’ upcoming Supergirl crossover.
‘Legends of Tomorrow’ got off to a strong start with last night’s premiere, but one moment from the series debut seemed to stick out as especially ill-devised. Namely, why the hell did ‘Legends’ think it necessary for Victor Garber’s Professor Martin Stein to drug and kidnap his Firestorm partner into joining the mission, and how in the world did the others laugh that off?
DC stars of The CW have often found themselves walking thin lines against the cinematic Justice League’s decision to reboot continuity with different actors, as Stephen Amell has defended multiple comments on taking Arrow to the big screen, or DC announcing Ezra Miller’s Flash within days of The CW premiere. Now, Grant Gustin himself is in the hot seat, defending accusations of decrying Miller’s Barry Allen.
The cat’s been out of the bag for awhile now that The Flash would finally introduce us to Killer Frost, though the DC drama added a twist with Robbie Amell’s fiery return. Now, our first official photos of “Welcome to Earth-2” have arrived, getting up close and personal with the dastardly duo of Killer Frost and Deathstorm.
Any DC fan worth their salt well remembers that fan-favorite Kevin Smith came very close to bringing us a newer, weirder Superman, but now Smith has his eye on a different Justice League-r. Smith will direct an episode of The Flash down the line, if you wanted to see what Jay and Silent Bob thought of the Arrow-verse.
Flash big bads can be a little difficult to keep up with (hardy-har), hopping back hundreds of years in time and changing their appearance, or speeding between dimensions on a whim, but at least one of Barry Allen’s biggest rogues will make a major Season 2 return. The Reverse-Flash will officially zoom back to Central City, but in which form, and why?
Season 1 of The Flash exceeded all our expectations from a visual standpoint, particularly in the introduction of classic DC villain Gorilla Grodd, a fun tease that unexpectedly grew into a live-action feast for the eyes. Well, Season 2 may have outdone its predecessor, delivering on a King Shark tease that ranks among the most insane and impressive effects ever brought to life on TV.
The moment The Flash cast Danielle Panabaker in the role of Caitlin Snow, DC comics fans knew the characters’ villainous comic alter-ego Killer Frost lay somewhere ahead. We got a taste of how it might look in the first season finale, but could there be more Frost in our future? Take a look at the full-costumed look while we wait!
