Only two episodes remain in The Flash Season 2’s immediate future, though next Tuesday will take us into the recent past with the return of several familiar faces. Not only will Laurel Lance live on as the Earth-2 Black Siren (amusingly photographed on an undoctored set), but even more deceased metahumans seemingly make the trip in our first photos.

The Flash managed to slow things down a bit for Kevin Smith’s emotional “Runaway Dinosaur,” but all hell breaks loose in Central City by the looks of next week’s penultimate Season 2 outing “Invincible.” In addition to an Earth-2 Laurel on the loose to unleash her inner Siren, a whole army of colorful (and familiar) baddies have taken to the streets.
The Flash fans will have a chance to see their hero through Kevin Smith’s eyes by ante-penultimate Season 2 outing “The Runaway Dinosaur,” as well an early installment of Season 3, but would the Yoga Hosers director ever take on Arrow? Not behind the camera, perhaps, though Smith now wants to write an episode or two of The Flash’s DC TV progenitor, adapting a famous villain from his own comic run.
It’s officially that time again, as broadcast TV prepares to draw its seasons to a May close, so will Flash Season 2 and Arrow Season 4 stick the landing? Find out in the first synopses, as Zoom’s true plans send Barry into the race of his life, while Oliver gets help from a surprising place to defeat Damien Darhk.
We’ve not yet seen how Kevin Smith will fare in directing his first Flash episode “The Runaway Dinosaur,” but already Season 3 is banking on the Mallrats creator for a speedy return. Ahead of next week’s ante-penultimate Season 2 hour, The Flash confirms Smith will return to direct in Season 3.
Whether concerns over The Flash’s central Season 2 mystery prove justified, few would argue that the CW drama’s second run has consistently upped the ante for visual effects on television. Ahead of Zoom-ing into the final episodes of the season, visual effects supervisor Armen Kevorkian opens up on some of the design elements for Season 2's big bad, and how Barry’s look might end up evolving a bit in Season 3.
Yet another director has parted ways with Warner Bros. due to good ol' "creative differences." Following Michelle MacLaren's departure from Wonder Woman, Seth Grahame-Smith has left The Flash solo movie, which is set to star Ezra Miller as Barry Allen. The film was to be the author and screenwriter's directorial debut, and although he's no longer at the helm, The Flash will still reportedly use his screenplay.
The Flash Season 2 has plenty of questions left to answer as we head into the final May episodes, though Arrow fans in particular are eager for a look at Katie Cassidy back in action as the Earth-2 Black Canary, or the sinister “Black Siren.” Now, an “Invincible” synopsis and word from the cast teases some “morbid shock,” while Wally West may get his own speedy hero before long.
The Flash has never been one to shy away from mystery, teasing out complicated identities for both Season 1 and 2 big bads, but never so fervently as the mystery masked man trapped in Zoom’s lair. We’ll have to wait until the finale, while cast and crew claim the reveal as “beautiful,” mind-blowing and with “no way of making sense” all at once. Huh?
Legends of Tomorrow has begun winding down its first-season struggle against Vandal Savage, and it’s safe to say that not all of the Arrow-Flash spinoff has proven a rousing success. Headed into Season 2 however, Legends will borrow writers from both DC dramas, not only to facilitate crossover, but to completely reinvent the series from atom.
