Superhero movies are having a tough time lately. First it was Tim Miller’s shocking exit from Deadpool 2 over creative differences, and then composer Junkie XL’s subsequent departure from the movie in solidarity. Then, it was Rick Famuyiwa who dropped out of The Flash movie, and while there’s no confirmed reason as to why, he made it clear that this was probably another creative differences situation as well. We were all pretty bummed, as he seemed so excited when he talked about drafting the script. The actors who have signed on to the film are no less disappointed, including Kiersey Clemons, who said that she found his departure “very upsetting.”

This week, a giant monster terrorizes the city, Caitlin sees a doctor about her “killer” cold, Barry tries to make a friend, and we all learn a valuable lesson about guest etiquette. "Monster" was directed by C. Kim Miles and written by Zack Stenz.
Things are not looking good for Warner Bros.’ The Flash solo movie. The DC Film already lost its director this past April, and now his replacement has dropped out.
This week, two more classic rogues make their Flashy debut, the King of the Rogues drops in for a visit, and we visit a gallery of roguish alt-Wellses. "The New Rogues" was directed by Stefan Pleszczynski and written by Benjamin Raab and Deric A. Hughes.
The first major crossover between Arrow and The Flash didn’t bother with too much story in common, while the second largely served to set up Legends of Tomorrow, so what happens when all three get together for one story? Matching titles! See for yourself, as one unifying threat brings together Flash, Arrow and Legends for the crossover event, shared title and all.
Q: Are superheroes inextricably tied to their alter-ego day jobs? For example, does Clark Kent have to be a journalist, or Hal Jordan a pilot? — @Chan_180
A:For all the questions about whether the Secret Identity is a concept that can still provide drama within the superhero genre or something that just sticks around as an outdated trope from the Golden Age that was handed down to comics by Emma Orczy and the Scarlet Pimpernel, the idea of getting rid of the day job is something that's rarely discussed, probably because it hasn't actually happened all that often. Let's face it: If you're a superhero, you're a whole lot more likely to literally come back from the dead than you are to start a new career once you're in your thirties.
The Flash has been teasing the possibility of “Flashpoint” since Season 1, threatening to splinter timelines whenever Barry entertains the notion of saving his mother. Why then, after Season 2 seemingly made the leap, did Season 3 open with a slightly-modified timeline, then walk it back by the hour’s end? Turns out, that wasn’t always the plan.
The Flash has paid homage to its original 1990 TV incarnation about thrice over by now, but with John Wesley Shipp finally joining the race, it was only a matter of time before things got tricky once more. Looks like Mark Hamill is in on the joke, as fresh set photos reveal the Trickster’s new look in Season 3.
This week, Barry goes on two dates that last a combined time of five minutes, Wally’s gotta go fast, and Harrison Twells returns! It’s Up To Speed. “Magenta” was directed by Armen V. Kevorkian and written by Judalina Neira and David Kob.
Arrow picked one hell of a week for its 100th episode, landing smack-dab in the middle of The CW’s four-way superhero crossover with Supergirl, The Flash and Legends of Tomorrow. Still, we’ve time yet before the heroes come together, for which producer Marc Guggenheim reveals not only what brings Supergirl to Star City, but also what other familiar faces will pop up for Arrow’s centennial.
