There’s no secret that The Flash will finally introduce us to Killer Frost with this coming Tuesday’s “Welcome to Earth-2,” but however much time we get to spend with an alternate-reality version of Caitlin Snow, The CW will make it memorable. Check out some chilly new Killer Frost art from the Tuesday premiere, along with brand-new photos from “Welcome to Earth-2.”
DC TV shows have an astonishing amount of musical theatre talent between them, not the least of which is Rent alum Jesse L. Martin as The Flash’s Joe West. We’ve seen The Flash get musical once or twice before, but “Welcome to Earth-2” will finally give the erstwhile Tom Collins his due, judging by the official photos.
The CW knew what it was doing, to schedule three DC dramas in one week between The Flash, Arrow and Legends of Tomorrow, and February 23 will kick off the most comic-bonkers run yet. Check out new synopses for King Shark’s Flash return, Vixen’s live-action Arrow debut, and a future Oliver’s arrival on Legends of Tomorrow!
The moment Supergirl was announced for CBS, Flash and Arrow fans have hoped for a potential crossover between The CW and CBS. Recent responses from executive producers Andrew Kreisberg and Greg Berlanti have overwhelmingly dashed our hopes, but it looks like Supergirl pulled a fast one. Barry Allen is coming to National City!
Flash may have gotten a bit stuck in the “Fast Lane” by this week’s ho-hum hour, but the next two weeks may prove the most anticipated of the season, finally heading to Earth-2 with plenty of familiar faces. See Killer Frost, Deathstorm and Earth-2 Barry in our first full glimpse of “Welcome to Earth-2!”
As with its first year, The Flash Season 2 has built a sizable mystery around the identity of its true big bad, diverting from the comics just enough to keep DC fans on their toes. Tuesday’s “The Reverse-Flash Returns” even dipped into Season 1 mythology, but may stealthily have dropped a huge bomb for Zoom’s identity as well.
However dim hope seemed in the first place, fans of both Supergirl and The Flash perked up at news that Warner Bros. had a month or so to work out a potential multi-network crossover for its DC heroes this season. Sadly, that ship seems to have sailed, according to mutual executive producer Andrew Kreisberg.
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.
In case you missed DC’s Dawn of the Justice League special on The CW last night, the company’s own Geoff Johns premiered some new concept art for Justice League and its characters while also re-confirming Green Lantern Corps. as another upcoming addition to the DCU. Warner Bros. released one piece of concept art featuring the JL lineup yesterday, but these new videos give us an even better look at designs for Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash.
It took a village to raise Legends of Tomorrow out of Arrow and The Flash, but after taking off in its January 21 premiere, don’t expect our DC Guardians to return anytime soon. Producers confirm that neither Arrow nor Flash will crossover with the Legends again this season, as well the likelihood of an expanded second season.
