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.
This week, Cisco looks for his white whale, Twells deals with shades of gray, and Wally West is the black sheep of the West siblings. It’s the most colorful episode that doesn’t feature the Rainbow Rider in “Potential Energy”, directed by Rob Hardy, and written by Bryan Q. Miller.
DC’s ‘Legends of Tomorrow’ is the best, most infuriatingly terrible, fun show you’ll ever hate-love. Our early review, before its ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ meets ‘Doctor Who’ premiere takes off on January 21!
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.
DC may be busy trying to get its Legends of Tomorrow off the ground, but the unencumbered Flash and Arrow will start 2016 with an equally big bang. As such, the first photos from Flash‘s “Potential Energy” and Arrow’s “Blood Debts” premieres have arrived, returning Anarky to the fold as Barry dresses up/down with a full tuxedo.
The minds behind CBS’ Supergirl have time and time again downplayed the likelihood of Kara meeting up with Arrow or The Flash, but that hasn’t stopped producers from at least considering the crossover. To wit, The CW and CBS will decide this month if Supergirl might cross over to Barry and Oliver’s world before the current season’s end.
Any DC fan worth their salt well remembers that fan-favorite Kevin Smith came very close to bringing us a newer, weirder Superman, but now Smith has his eye on a different Justice League-r. Smith will direct an episode of The Flash down the line, if you wanted to see what Jay and Silent Bob thought of the Arrow-verse.
The Flash managed to astonish its fans with the full-fledged appearance of a 14-foot King Shark, an admittedly expensive effect on an already stretched budget. Arrow star David Ramsey teased that we might see the Suicide Squad member again, and now we know for certain King Shark will have his day, with a full episode and crossover to boot.
We’d already known The Flash would use its Earth-2 connections to return Robbie Amell to the role of Ronnie Raymond, former Firestorm host, but it seems the character’s parallel universe name may carry some major DC weight. Meet “Deathstorm,” as The Flash namedrops a Green Lantern baddie for Robbie Amell’s return!
