Only four episodes in, and 'Arrow' spinoff 'The Flash' is already bringing in the big guns for its first crossover, and by big guns, we of course mean the badass Ms. Felicity Smoak. The Arrow's best gal will take a trip to Central City next week for "Going Rogue," encountering the chilly Captain Cold in the process, and we've got the first photos!

In case you couldn't already tell by the way things are playing out between all the DC properties, there's no real continuity like there is with the Marvel films and television shows. Where Marvel has a vision and a plan in place with everyone working together in harmony to realize that vision, DC is like a room full of introverts with their heads down, doing their own thing. Marvel has the Cinematic Universe which has now extended to TV, and to explain what DC is up to, Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns is likening their approach to a concept DC comics fans will instantly recognize: The Multiverse.

Practice makes perfect. That holds true for superheroes as well as television shows about superheroes. So it makes sense that 'The Flash' is essentially repeating the same steps week after week in order to get the basics down pat before getting into more adventurous stuff down the road. “Things You Can’t Outrun” is by no means a bad episode, but it doesn’t provide a lot in terms of new elements.

'Arrow' spinoff 'The Flash' has speedily become one of the better-received series of the year, let alone its success for the CW, making the latest update seem somewhat slow by comparison. The DC sci-fi drama has officially been given a full season order for its back 9 episodes, along with fellow CW success 'Jane the Virgin.'

Not to be outdone by the big 'Captain America 3'/Civil War announcement from earlier this week, Warner Bros. dropped some superhero news of their own. They've confirmed their 2017, 2018 and 2019 superhero movies as well as announced some new casting for members of the new Justice League.

'The Flash' Review: "Fastest Man Alive"

Second episodes of television shows are hard. They might be the hardest one a show ever has to pull off, since it has to establish the template by which the show moves from pilot to actual series. Gone is the burden of having to set up a world, but present is the burden of having to build it out on a weekly basis. A show has to plan for the future but stay entertaining in the present. “Fastest Man Alive” represents 'The Flash' experiencing a few growing pains as it makes its shift into weekly entertainment, but it’s by no means a bad episode. The good far outweighs the bad, and much of the bad can be easily fixed over time.

On Thursday, September 25, 'How to Get Away with Murder' lit the blogosphere on fire. The series, executive produced by 'Scandal' creator Shonda Rhimes, featured actors Jack Falahee and Conrad Ricamora in flagrante, fiercely making out with each other before ripping each others' clothes off. The following week, these two were at it again, "only this time, I get to do you," said Ricamora's Oliver. And that's apparently only a steamy preview of what's coming up.

Yesterday morning 'The Flash' sped out some exceptionally spoilery photos of the DC hero facing his greatest nemesis, but the series was far from finished flashing its latest wares. Not only has the 'Arrow' spinoff added veteran actor Victor Garber in a familiar DC role to compliment some new Firestorm photos, but so too will 'Smash' star Andy Mientus portray openly-gay DC villain "Pied Piper" in upcoming episodes.
