Through the first fifty minutes of tonight’s installment of The Flash, I was thinking it was a middling-to-OK episode of television. Way too much love quadrangle baloney, way too much Joe trying to go alone even though he should know better, way too much of the show starting the slow burn of Cisco figuring out Wells’ true end game. And then the last ten minutes happened and everything changed.

Despite a few recent clarifications from Arrow and Flash producers, we still have no idea what to expect from the forthcoming Atom-centric team-up spinoff. The latest casting doesn’t tip the scale either way, though Wentworth Miller’s Captain Cold will be relieved to have some company, as Prison Break brother Dominic Purcell joins the spinoff in his Heat Wave guise.
We still don’t know what to make of Arrow and The Flash’s untitled teamup spinoff, featuring Brandon Routh’s Atom, a returning Caity Lotz and many more, but producers aren’t shy about teasing new details. Find out our first taste of the major unknown DC villain in store, along with notable absences from the roster and more!
Both Arrow and The Flash had plenty to offer by their recent PaleyFest panels, teasing everything from famous Flash stories to major Starling City reveals, but at last we can see for ourselves. Watch both CW superhero dramas’ spoilery new sizzle reel trailers, as Arrow Season 3 and The Flash build to their season finales!
Puns aside, The Flash will hit the ground running in its March 17 return, kicking off the first of nine episodes that will bring about some major changes to Barry Allen’s world. New footage and teases from creators at PaleyFest promise more DC villains and time-travel terrors to come, along with new speedsters in Season 2, and the biggest burning question of S.T.A.R. Labs answered.
Ever since The Flash first spied his yellow-suited arch-nemesis Reverse Flash in set photos, we’ve been anxious for a clearer look at the character. We’ve seen the sinister speedster (and his spoilery alter-ego) in several episodes now, but at last The Flash has revealed our first clear look at the Reverse Flash.
The Flash will cool his heels for at least another week, but the Scarlet Speedster’s March 17 return will be anything but easy, judging by the CW spinoff’s latest trailer. Not only does Star Wars star Mark Hamill reprise his role as DC’s Trickster, but so too do we see The Tomorrow People castoff Peyton List as a new “Rogue,” and Liam McIntyre’s debut as the new Weather Wizard!
Hard as it was to imagine Arrow spawning yet another spinoff for Brandon Routh’s Atom, The CW did fans one better to develop a major team-up series culling players from both Oliver Queen and The Flash’s world. It’s still daunting to think such a major undertaking will come to pass, but the spinoff’s three secret DC heroes may yet have been revealed.
The Flash won’t formally return until St. Patrick’s Day, of all days, but Barry Allen may run “Out of Time” even sooner. The Bringer of Rain lives anew as Spartacus star Liam McIntyre conjures up our new Weather Wizard in the full set of photos from The Flash’s March 17 return.
We thought it unlikely that Arrow could spawn yet another CW spinoff to see The Atom joining The Flash but it turns out the network’s real plan is infinitely crazier. The CW is reportedly working on a new series to feature not only Brandon Routh’s Atom, but also Victor Garber’s Firestorm, Wentworth Miller’s Captain Cold, and craziest of all, Caity Lotz’s Black Canary!
