There’s still a great deal of mystery around The Flash Season 3, not the least of which will finally introduce Mirror Master, and return an old friend. Or is that foe? Yes, Wentworth Miller’s Captain Cold will return for a chilly rivalry with the next generation of Flash rogues, including a gender-swapped version of The Top.

The Flash set us up for a pretty pointed twist on the norm in Season 3, enough that the presence of yet another evil speedster on set raised more than a few eyebrows. We’ve since learned that two villains will menace The Flash this year, but why bother with another speed demon? A producer has the answer – plus, a bit of clarification on “Flashpoint” changes to the surrounding universes.
The fastest man alive and the, uh, robotiest man alive? (Sorry, I don’t know Cyborg’s tagline. Does he have one? I don’t think he’s ever gotten one. The robotiest man alive works, I think.)
DC and The CW have a habit of granting practical wishes of fans and reporters, to the point that fan-fervor brought Constantine’s Arrow appearance, the Flash-Supergirl crossover and more, most recently cementing a musical crossover for the latter two in 2017. Recent rumors have suggested that Joss Whedon himself might direct the two-part musical extravaganza, with Neil Patrick Harris to boot, but is there any truth to them?
Supergirl may have broken down the wall keeping major DC heroes like Superman off of TV, but despite recent rumors, no one from the Bat-family will be joining the Arrow-verse anytime soon. Executive producer Greg Berlanti shoots down recent speculation, as well that they’d even tried to bring Bruce Wayne to Star City.
The path to Grodd has been a rewarding one for Flash fans, to slowly set up his arrival in Season 1, and go full Fay Wray in Season 2, so you didn’t think we’d leave that killa gorilla out in the jungle for Season 3, did you? Oh yes, The Flash Season 3 is headed to Grodd’s Gorilla City, and for two full episodes at that.
Come on, sooner or later, someone had to use those pipes. With the addition of Supergirl to the Arrow-verse, musical fans practically had bingo of amazing singers sharing the screen, and The CW will finally reward us for it. Not only will Supergirl and The Flash have a two-episode musical crossover of their very own, we’ll also meet Miss Martian this season.
Just as The CW’s Arrow-verse births a new Vixen, so too is her comic progenitor about to have some company. The CW confirms that CW Seed will launch a new animated series set within the universe, Freedom Fighters: The Ray, featuring a gay lead with a voice to be cast for eventual live-action debut.
Two seasons in, The Flash very quickly burned through introductions of the character’s major comic “Rogues Gallery,” albeit with one notable exception. New reports suggest Season 3 will finally cast the infamous Mirror Master, among other Flash villains the likes of The Top, and others.
Like The Flash and Arrow before them, Supergirl and the Legends of Tomorrow will up the excitement considerably to stand beside their fellow CW heroes onscreen. Now, we at least know what their feet look like together, as Stephen Amell reprises an old teaser to signal the start of crossover production.
