‘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?
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, Michelle MacLaren officially signs on to ‘Wonder Woman,’ Frank Grillo talks about the return of Crossbones in 'Captain America 3', and Batman battles Darth Vader...to the death!
‘Arrow‘ and ‘The Flash‘ fans are already eagerly anticipating the upcoming two-night crossover event, but could an even more ‘Super’ hero lie in their future? We’ve heard time and time again that DC intends to keep its TV and movie continuities separate, but a new report suggests CBS’ upcoming ‘Supergirl‘ series could well come to play with The CW’s red and green-suited superheroes in the future.
All shows need to figure out ways to stretch a season-long production budget, especially those with moderate to heavy special effects. So it’s not a huge surprise to get an episode of ‘The Flash’ like “Power Outage,” which functioned as something akin to a double bottle episode. Crafting a sequence like last week’s SUPERSONIC PUNCH costs a pretty penny, and sometimes that means cutting corners in other episodes. So this week’s episode turned off the superpowers for the most part, turned the lights down low, and also turned off most of my interest in the process.
