We weren’t surprised to see ‘The Flash’ taking care of ‘Arrow’ cousin and ‘Tomorrow People’ castoff Robbie Amell after the latter’s cancellation, but it seems yet another evolved human will make their way to Central City as well. Peyton List will appear in an upcoming 2015 episode of ‘The Flash,’ playing none other than Captain Cold’s sister, DC’s “Golden Glider.”
In honor of the Fall finale of ‘The Flash,’ I thought I’d steal a page from fellow ScreenCrush writer Mike Ryan and ask twenty questions about tonight’s episode, “The Man In The Yellow Suit.” Did the reveal of The Reverse-Flash make any sense?
ScreenCrush’s Comic Strip is a weekly roundup of the hottest superhero movie/TV news items. From Marvel to DC and points in between, if it pertains to costumed comic book heroes, we’re covering it here, bringing you our expert analysis. This week, Warner Bros. reveals an insane ‘Suicide Squad’ cast, Benedict Cumberbatch gets confirmed for ‘Doctor Strange,’ and ‘Fantastic Four’ finally reveals a synopsis.
‘Star Wars’ icon Mark Hamill will soon reprise one of his most legendary roles, and we’re not talking about Luke Skywalker. The ‘Force Awakens’ star will return to different roots for The CW’s ‘The Flash’ in an upcoming episode, reprising his role from the 1990's CBS series as DC villain The Trickster, but with a tricky twist!
'Arrow' and 'The Flash' got their epic crossover out of the way just in time to confront their biggest bads in next week's midseason finales, as Barry goes up against "The Man in the Yellow Suit," and Oliver makes "The Climb" to confront Ra's al Ghul. Now, The CW has released full-length trailers for both finales, expanding 'The Flash' finale's runtime as well!
‘The Flash’'s quick thinking may have saved the day in last night’s ‘Arrow’ crossover conclusion “The Brave and the Bold,” but Barry Allen will need more than wits or speed to Reverse the threat of “The Man in the Yellow Suit.” Check out the first official look at Reverse Flash in a new midseason finale trailer for next week’s final ‘Flash’ installment of 2014!
‘Arrow’ season 3 lets loose its eighth installment of the year with “The Brave and the Bold,” as ‘The Flash’ comes to town to aid Oliver in pursuit of a boomerang-throwing killer, only to find the spree has deeper ties to A.R.G.U.S. and Diggle’s wife Lyla.
Well that was a LOT of fun. There are times to get super serious in the world of episodic reviews, and there are times to pass around a few beverages and raise a glass. I don’t know if this was the “best” episode of ‘The Flash,’ whatever that word really means, but it was almost certainly the most entertaining. As light on its feet as The Flash (and ‘The Flash’) has ever been, ‘Flash Versus Arrow’ delivered on the promise of its title and provided some pulpy thrills while also providing conflict for future installments.
We weren’t entirely surprised to find CBS getting in on the TV superhero game with Greg Berlanti’s development of DC’s ‘Supergirl,’ but the titular superheroine’s first casting rumor may yet surprise fans of The CW’s existing DC dramas. ‘The Vampire Diaries’ and spinoff The Originals’ star Rebecca Holt is the first name tossed into the goblet for CBS’s forthcoming superhero series, but how likely is she to be our new ‘Supergirl’?
Tomorrow night will see ‘The Flash’ kicking off part one of the big “Flash vs. Arrow” crossover, but why wait a whole 24 hours for some flashy new goodness? Get an extended look at Oliver and Barry’s buddy brawl, as well as DC villains Captain Cold and Heat Wave, and we’ll even throw a shirtless Felicity into the latest ‘Flash’ trailer, because why not?
