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!
The Flash Season 2’s focus on another Earth has allowed any number of expired characters to return, leaving Robbie Amell’s Ronnie Raymond a prime candidate after the October premiere. Now, new set photos have revealed Amell’s return as his fiery alter-ego, but are we seeing Earth-2, or something more complex?
Yesterday The Flash revealed that Barry’s most dastardly foe the Reverse-Flash would speed through Central City once more, while past set photos teased the Earth-2 arrivals of both Killer Frost and our mirror-image Barry Allen. Now, all three show their faces in a new look at the latter half of The Flash Season 2, beginning in 2016!
Flash big bads can be a little difficult to keep up with (hardy-har), hopping back hundreds of years in time and changing their appearance, or speeding between dimensions on a whim, but at least one of Barry Allen’s biggest rogues will make a major Season 2 return. The Reverse-Flash will officially zoom back to Central City, but in which form, and why?
