As with its first year, The Flash Season 2 has built a sizable mystery around the identity of its true big bad, diverting from the comics just enough to keep DC fans on their toes. Tuesday’s “The Reverse-Flash Returns” even dipped into Season 1 mythology, but may stealthily have dropped a huge bomb for Zoom’s identity as well.

However dim hope seemed in the first place, fans of both Supergirl and The Flash perked up at news that Warner Bros. had a month or so to work out a potential multi-network crossover for its DC heroes this season. Sadly, that ship seems to have sailed, according to mutual executive producer Andrew Kreisberg.
DC stars of The CW have often found themselves walking thin lines against the cinematic Justice League’s decision to reboot continuity with different actors, as Stephen Amell has defended multiple comments on taking Arrow to the big screen, or DC announcing Ezra Miller’s Flash within days of The CW premiere. Now, Grant Gustin himself is in the hot seat, defending accusations of decrying Miller’s Barry Allen.
In case you missed DC’s Dawn of the Justice League special on The CW last night, the company’s own Geoff Johns premiered some new concept art for Justice League and its characters while also re-confirming Green Lantern Corps. as another upcoming addition to the DCU. Warner Bros. released one piece of concept art featuring the JL lineup yesterday, but these new videos give us an even better look at designs for Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash.
It took a village to raise Legends of Tomorrow out of Arrow and The Flash, but after taking off in its January 21 premiere, don’t expect our DC Guardians to return anytime soon.

There’s little standing in the way of The Flash’s 2016 return with Tuesday’s “Potential Energy,” but the future has plenty more obstacles to throw at the team. Catch a better look at Killer Frost and Deathstorm in action, along with new looks at Wally West and the Reverse Flash’s return in a new universe-ending trailer!
The cat’s been out of the bag for awhile now that The Flash would finally introduce us to Killer Frost, though the DC drama added a twist with Robbie Amell’s fiery return. Now, our first official photos of “Welcome to Earth-2” have arrived, getting up close and personal with the dastardly duo of Killer Frost and Deathstorm.
DC bases are pretty well covered between Gotham, Supergirl, Arrow, Flash and soon-to-be time-hopping Legends of Tomorrow, that even the most outlandish of characters can seemingly find their way to live action. Case in point, a new mystery as DC bigwig Geoff Johns says at least one of the above series may feature the future-flung Legion of Super-Heroes in an upcoming episode.
There’s no denying the surge in CW popularity over the last few years, with superhero series like Arrow, Flash and Legends of Tomorrow dominating weekdays, while Jane the Virgin and Crazy Ex-Girlfriend bring home Golden Globes. Still, the network remains relatively small against the big four, so might CW owners look toward yet another cord-cutter streaming service?
