We thought it unlikely that Arrow could spawn yet another CW spinoff to see The Atom joining The Flash but it turns out the network’s real plan is infinitely crazier. The CW is reportedly working on a new series to feature not only Brandon Routh’s Atom, but also Victor Garber’s Firestorm, Wentworth Miller’s Captain Cold, and craziest of all, Caity Lotz’s Black Canary!
The Flash has already made tremendous impact on The CW’s Arrow-verse, and the hits keep coming before season 3's end. Not only will Falling Skies and Hellboy star Doug Jones play a new DC metahuman baddie, but so too will Flash characters Joe West and Cisco Ramon drop by Starling City for a visit.
Producers of The Flash have been promising for weeks now that a certain psychic super-primate would make a formal debut after his initial teases, and by Grodd, did they deliver. Watch DC’s Gorilla Grodd arrive to his full speaking glory in last night’s closing Flash tag from “Fallout!”
That shouldn’t be a revolutionary thing to say, and most of this stems from the type of TV logic that makes you look at blue sky and think, “Hmmm, but maybe it’s really orange?” Answers are rarely what they seem since shows often have something else up their sleeve to completely contradict the norm later on. Another reason why an unassailable fact stinks? Having answers is boring because then there’s no way for the audience to “participate,” as it were, in a piece of fiction. Yes, that participation is always an illusion, but simply mulling over possibilities (without the need to actually “solve” them) is one of the chief pleasures of serialized narration.
The Flash doesn’t mind monkeying around with a few teases of outlandish DC villain Gorilla Grodd, but could the CW drama ever truly bring the telepathic ape to life? A new promo for The Flash not only promises that “Grodd is Coming,” but also gives us a first look up-close with the psychic primate!
Firestorm finally got his due from The Flash with this past Tuesday’s “The Nuclear Man,” but the titular hero lived up to his namesake and left the fate of Ronnie Raymond and Dr. Martin Stein up in smoke. Learn what we find in the “Fallout” with our first photos of next Tuesday’s latest, and find out what DC villain has Barry flash-fried!
It’s somewhat ironic that an episode featuring this much Firestorm would leave me a little cold. But that’s where I am tonight with ‘The Flash,’ which did enough to keep things moving along even if its actual content was all over the map both narratively and tonally. There were about three or four solid episodes in “The Nuclear Man,” all fighting for the same space. But whereas the battleground over Ronnie Raymond’s body yielded a literal explosion, this episode yielded few fireworks.
Last night saw ‘The Walking Dead’ losing yet another of its own, but death is never the end for its stars. To wit, ‘The Flash’ will feature everyone’s favorite post-apocalyptic songbird Emily Kinney as an upcoming villain, one which may have ties to talk of that ‘Atom’ spinoff…
'The Flash' will bring Firestorm to the forefront with next week's "The Nuclear Man," but things may not stay so linear for Barry Allen, as the DC drama delves into its most sci-fi stretch yet. Preview "The Nuclear Man"'s arrival with the full set of photos from this Tuesday's hour, and find out what 'Groundhog Day'-meets-'Back to the Future' shenanigans lie in store for 'The Flash!'
Bouncing back nicely after last week’s subpar episode, tonight’s episode of ‘The Flash’ didn’t rewrite the rules of television but provided an entertaining hour all the same. “Crazy For You” is the type of episode this show does well when not focused exclusively on the show’s über-mythology: It provided a villain-of-the-week that tied into the emotional states of the characters, deployed some inventive action sequences, and then made you cry a little at the show’s latest open-hearted expression of love between two people. Not that I cried, or anything. GORILLA GRODD 4 LYFE, RIGHT?
