If the D.C. Cinematic Universe has been chugging towards its Justice League centerpiece like a well-oiled machine, then The Flash solo movie is the one janky mechanism that keeps coming out of joint and necessitating repairs. Warner Bros. executives have been unable to pin down a creative team for the fastest man on the planet’s moment in the spotlight, having already lost original director Seth Grahame-Smith (Pride and Prejudice and Zombies) as well as replacement director Rick Famuyiwa (Dope) just this past Halloween. As the search continues for a director who won’t end up with ‘creative differences’ like the others — that’s movie slang for “refused to bend to the will of the studio” — Warner Bros. is ensuring that no trace of Famuyiwa will be left in the finished product.

It’s taken three years to get us there, but The Flash is finally ready to Vibe on a new costumed hero. An extended trailer for next week’s “Dead or Alive” finally gives Cisco the full suit from his future vision, as the Justice League’s Gypsy comes to town, and a certain Super-set makes an appearance.
The Flash had plenty of looming mysteries to address by the time of 2017 premiere “Borrowing Problems From the Future,” the title of which proved surprisingly literal. Not only were Savitar’s three prophecies shoved aside, but Season 3 laid the groundwork for its two-part musical “Duet” with Supergirl, a certain city of the apes, and more.
Long before Flash and Supergirl confirmed their musical crosover “Duet,” fans pointed to the shared Glee past between Grant Gustin and Melissa Benoist as proof of concept. Now, their Music Meister fittingly hails from the same hallowed halls, as Darren Criss signs on to musically menace the Super-duo.
Seeing as we could all use something lighter to think about, Supergirl and The Flash are officially reporting for rehearsal of their big musical crossover. Not only has The CW set a late March debut for the showstopping two-part event, but we also know which Arrow-verse stars will flex their pipes.
The Flash may never overcome its awkward choice to turn Barry and Iris from adoptive siblings to star-crossed lovers, but if the midseason finale’s vision of the future come to pass, that may not be a problem much longer. So it is with an extended 2017 trailer for “Borrowing Problems From the Future,” as Team Flash races to alter the future by piecing together what Barry saw.
For a series so preoccupied with time-travel and a bleak future, The Flash is starting to look an awful lot like the past. Now that we know Robbie Amell will mysteriously return in his role as Ronnie Raymond, another Season 1 veteran has confirmed a return over Twitter.
DC fans knew that FOX’s Gotham was unlikely to meet up with the CW heroes of Arrow or The Flash, though the latter’s visit to CBS’ Supergirl at least raised hope that FOX’s upcoming Black Lightning could join the next big crossover. Not so, it seems as DC TV boss Greg Berlanti seems to think FOX’s newest superhero will stand on his own for now.
The Flash Season 2 finale made a deliberate point of transforming Zoom into the exact image of demonic DC speedster “Black Flash,” and with good reason, it seems. Not only will the ghoulish figure return, he might even crop up on series outside The Flash.
Over the weekend, USA Today dropped their 2017 movie preview featuring new photos of some of the year’s most anticipated movies. One of those was, of course, DC’s Justice League. We’ve seen some behind-the-scenes footage and some new looks at Wonder Woman, Batman, and The Flash, but now the whole gang has arrived.
