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.
Preacher time is nearly upon us, and the sinners at AMC aren’t about to let us forget it. Not only does the Seth Rogen-Evan Golberg-adapted series have another brand-new trailer for the May premiere, but also some trouble with the law in a new round of photos.
Ruth Negga appears opposite Dominic Cooper in this summer’s Warcraft, but before then, you can see the pair’s chemistry at work in Preacher, Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg’s new AMC series based on Garth Ennis’ classic graphic novels. We had a chance to speak with Negga about her role as the impossibly charming Tulip O’Hare, the joys of playing such a complex character, and what we can expect from the series following its May 1 premiere.
Here at ComicsAlliance we’ve noticed a huge overlap between superhero comics fans and wrestling fans; wrestling is basically superhero theater. This Week in Spandex is a new weekly feature, in which longtime wrestling fan Kieran Shiach and enthusiastic recent convert Elle Collins summarize the week that was in WWE.
This week things are pretty mixed. The tag teams are great, the women's division is getting no respect at all (except on NXT, of course), and the McMahon family storyline still makes no sense as we barrel toward this Sunday's Payback.
It didn’t take for the hype of Jon Bernthal’s Punisher to generate talk of his own Daredevil spinoff, though Marvel and Netflix were quick to keep expectations down, even as Season 2 clearly set the character up for his own adventure. Now, Frank Castle’s war journal is officially open, as Marvel confirms a spinoff, showrunner and all.
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?
Welcome back to another Agents of S.O.M.E.T.H.I.N.G., where Comics Alliance’s Special Agents Chris Haley and Ziah Grace debrief you on all the things to like and complain about in this week’s episode of Disney’s ABC’s Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.! Ziah is on vacation this week, so we've conscripted a ringer from the Arrow and Legends of Tomorrow recaps to provide cover.
This week, the Agents try to clean up the ol’ HQ, Fitz and Simmons go on a pseudo-date, and Lincoln gets a new vest! “The Singularity” was directed by Garry A. Brown and written by Lauren LeFranc.
Welcome back to Up To Speed, in which Flash TV show veteran Dylan Todd and newbie Ziah Grace break down the latest episode of The Flash, dispense some Flash Facts, and talk about what works, what doesn’t, and where the series might be headed. But Ziah is on vacation this week, so guest commentator Chris Sims has stepped in to keep his spot warm!
This week, Barry has lost his speed and has to live like a boring norm, but can he still save the day when an elderly teenager threatens Harrison Wells? "Back To Normal" was directed by John F. Showalter and written by Brooke Roberts & Katherine Walczak.
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.
Dominic Cooper is following up his role as the younger Howard Stark in Marvel’s Agent Carter with two more franchise adaptations this summer. In addition to appearing on the big screen in Duncan Jones’ Warcraft, Cooper stars in Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg’s Preacher, the new AMC series based on Garth Ennis’ beloved graphic novels. Debuting on May 1, the first episode impressively captures the darkly comedic and devious tone of the comics, leaving us eager to see more. We had a chance to speak with Cooper following the premiere of Preacher at SXSW, where he discussed his part in the risky adaptation and teased some of the crazy stuff we'll see in the episodes and (hopefully) seasons ahead.
