Warner Bros. and DC Comics will undoubtedly roll out a more elaborate reveal of its Arrow-Flash spinoff series in the weeks to come, but series star Victor Garber may have beaten them to the punch. Not only has Garber reportedly confirmed the still-untitled drama going straight to series, but also its placement in January 2016.
We’ve known since The Flash pilot that Gorilla Grodd haunted Central City, and even seen the lumbering beast in shadow onn a few occasions, but fresh looks at the monkey madness of next week’s “Grodd Lives” will never get old. Go in-depth with the psychic primate and the Reverse Flash with a new full-length trailer for the final three episodes!
Arrow Season 3 has been a bit slow to build its main engine, but with only two episodes remaining, “Al Sah-Him” put the pedal to several metals. Not only did Oliver’s new League persona introduce us to a major Season 4 H.I.V.E. of villainy, but so too do we know how Season 3 will throw down in its final hours, and what new heroes will suit up for the cause.
The CW’s Arrow is still going strong in Season 3, but did you know that the emerald archer has never once chosen his own superhero name? Or that the famed Starling City is actually a composite of Germany and Philadelphia? These are just some of the Arrow points targeting you in the fourth episode of ‘You Think You Know TV?,’ which will not fail this city!
Last night’s Flash saw “The Trap” springing plenty of trouble on Barry’s past and present, though it’s the Scarlet Speedster’s future that caught our eye. Justice may be coming to The Flash before long, bringing some Arrow spinoff heroes in League with a major easter egg from the future.
The Flash is often resistant to the type of analysis that helps populate episodic recaps. That’s not to say it’s not good, which it often is. That’s not to say it’s not entertaining, because Lordy was “The Trap” entertaining. It’s just that everything that’s good about “The Trap” is right there on the surface. There are no metaphors, similes, or subtext to the episode. It’s pure plot, deployed in expert fashion. You saw the same things I did. There’s not much for me to explain. I’d simply be regurgitating the episode right back at you. And that’s neither good nor entertaining.
The Flash will undoubtedly pull out all the stops heading into the final four episodes of Season 1, but by Grodd, a giant gorilla has stolen the Reverse Flash’s thunder. Behold the majesty of “Grodd Lives” in stunning new photos, and preview the rest of the season with another Rogue-tastic trailer!
However little we grasp about Arrow or The Flash’s Atom-centric teamup spinoff, the major additions of its core team shed a great deal of light on the CW super-series. Now, the third and final DC hero has been added to the ranks, casting Edge of Tomorrow star Franz Drameh as … okay, well, he’s not Static, and he … maybe sounds like Cyborg?
Arrow fans were in for a big treat with tonight's "The Fallen," as DC dropped some major mythology, while Oliver and Felicity just plain dropped it. Yes, Olicity shippers, the inevitable has finally come to pass, and it was everything we always imagined it would be. Oh, and some stuff happened with Oliver, Thea and the League too, but we'll get to that!
The Flash can do many things well. “Moody” is not one of those things. So when “Who Is Harrison Wells?” slips into a melodrama about Caitlin’s disbelief over her mentor, which is a lot of tonight’s hour, the show gets bogged down in all the weight that burdened the show during its brief Firestorm arc. This week’s episode wasn’t bad, but it was certainly a letdown after the highs of the past two weeks. It was an installment running in place and only offering the illusion of actual progress.
