Our long national nightmare will abate this week, as both The Flash and Arrow return to the airwaves with new seasons. We’ve seen a few snippets from Barry Allen’s next big bad, but big is the name of the game in our first full clip from the Season 2 premiere, as “Flash Day” ends up interrupted by DC’s Atom Smasher.
The moment The Flash first teased that Golden Age speedster Jay Garrick would join Barry Allen for Season 2, we knew the cheeky CW series couldn’t resist recreating some classic comic moments. Now, those photos come to life, as Barry and and a fully-costumed Jay rescue Patty Spivot in first photos from “Flash of Two Worlds.”
The Flash Season 2 never quite wound up a full trailer the way Arrow opted for Season 4, but has still afforded plenty of looks at its new adventures. That said, a new promo offers the most tantalizing tidbit yet, as we finally get a look at “demon speedster” big bad Zoom, as voiced by Tony Todd himself.
Fandom among TV superheroes has ups and downs across both Marvel and DC; the former sharing continuity, but never screentime with its cinematic brethren, while DC’s lot keep explicitly separate from the Batman v. Superman world, and its Justice League. Now, DC’s Diane Nelson opens up as to why Arrow or The Flash will never join the Man of Steel, lest they “hinder the ability” of creatives to tell good stories.
The Flash has released multiple Season 2 teasers in lieu of a full two-minute trailer, something Arrow seems to be catching up on, though our longest look yet at Central City’s fall 2015 premiere brings some tantalizing tidbits. Not only do we meet several new villains and heroes, but also learn their involvement with “unstoppable demon” speedster Zoom.
The CW has been dropping trailers left and right, but if you thought Arrow hung up the bow after its first full Season 4 trailer, you’ve literally got another thing coming. Not only does the latest Season 4 spot finally namedrop the “Green Arrow,” but Damien Darhk also shows off skills that might make him the biggest bad to date.
Where Arrow held back every frame of footage until this past weekend’s trailer, The Flash Season 2 has proven a bit more generous by its early teasers, now unleashing the biggest yet before a full-length promo. Golden Age Flash Jay Garrick and DC’s Atom Smasher arrive in the latest look at Flash Season 2, along with a number of familiar faces.
The early scheduling of Comic-Con 2015 left Arrow without any Season 4 footage to show off at the big Superhero Saturday event. We've even seen a bit of Flash Season 2 in recent weeks, but Arrow Season 4 has at last debuted the motherlode with a full trailer. It's a new day in Star City, with a new look and a new name, and Legends will rise!
Anxious though we are to see Arrow and The Flash speeding out their fall 2015 trailers, fellow comic imprint iZombie managed to shuffle right past the DC heroes with a first Season 2 sneak peek. It’s a whole new status quo for Liv, but whose brains are on the menu this time around?
While many of us stare vacantly into our Twitter feeds waiting for the promised Arrow Season 4 trailer, the art department for the CW’s vigilante archer aims a bit higher with a first poster. We’ve seen Oliver’s new costume in front of Star City, and now Arrow Season 4 shows us … Oliver’s new costume! In front of Star City! With a tagline!
