“He’s one of the more fascinating characters I’ve seen in the DC universe,” the CW actor tells TheWrap
Sonic supervillain Pied Piper finally makes his debut Tuesday on The CW’s “The Flash.” The actor is thrilled to be playing Barry Allen’s (Grant Gustin) brilliant adversary in at least two episodes of the freshman series, but if the network asked him to he’d be more than willing to star on a spin-off of his very own.
“I’m definitely open to a Pied Piper spin-off. He’s one of the more fascinating characters I’ve seen »

CW has released their prime time listing for the week of February 9th and it has some action packed for it. The Flash will deal with possible nuclear issues and mete-humans. The Vampire Diaries may be saying goodbye to Jeremy that week as well for good while he leaves Mystic Falls. Then we also see the other shows with new episodes and even a Friday night movie with Aubrey Plaza. Here is the official listing.
Monday, February 9
“The Devil is Damned” — (8:00-9:00 p.m. Et) (Content Rating Tbd) (HDTV)
Family Is Power — More dangerous than ever, Vincent (guest star Yusuf Gatewood) remains one step ahead after joining forces with a powerful figure from his past.

Robbie Amell And Victor Garber Guest Star As Firestorm — After Ronnie (Robbie Amell) attacks a physicist (Bill Dow), Barry (Grant Gustin) and the team realize they need to go after Caitlin’s (Danielle Panabaker) fiancé who is now a dangerous meta-human. They deduce the best way to track Ronnie is to find Dr. Martin Stein (guest star Victor Garber) who was working on a project called F.I.R.E.S.T.O.R.M. Barry struggles to balance his duties as The Flash and his relationship with Linda Park (Malese Jow), and Joe (Jesse L. Martin) enlists Cisco’s (Carlos Valdes) help to reinvestigate the murder of Nora Allen (Michelle Harrison). General Eiling (Clancy Brown) returns to Central City. Glen Winter directed the episode written by Andrew Kreisberg & Katherine Walczak. I'm guessing that this will be the episode which finally sheds some light on what's going on with Firestorm, »
This week on The CW’s The Flash, as Central City weathered both a nasty cold front and a gnarly heat wave, the scarlet speedster (as well as Cisco) lent a helping hand. Meanwhile, Caitlin made a curious discovery about her “dead” fiance’s new name.
“Revenge of the Rogues,” perhaps more than any episode to date, played like a live-action comic book – which is a good, good thing. As previously chronicled on these pages, I’ve always been a fan of the comics’ Captain Cold, so every moment in which Wentworth Miller let loose with the cold gun was pure joy. »
A quick review of tonight's "The Flash" coming up just as soon as I make you try scuba diving and Indian food... "Revenge of the Rogues" upped the ante for our hero on several levels. It gave Captain Cold a partner in Heat Wave. It made Flash's existence very public, rather than an urban legend being chronicled by Iris' blog, and for now at least seems to have put the cops (including the very heroic Eddie Thawne) back on his side. These are big deals for the evolution of both the character and the show. Some of the Rogues have to be able to return again and again, and Captain Cold continues to work, even if Dominic Purcell attempted to chew every piece of scenery as Heat Wave. And if the idea is for the Flash to be inspirational in a way his counterpart in Starling City can't be, then at a certain point, »

Firestorm made his presence felt in the midseason finale of The Flash, but there's still an awful we don't know about The CW version of the fan-favourite character. In a recent interview with Comic Book Resources, both Robbie Amell (Ronnie Raymond) and Victor Garber (Dr. Martin Stein) weighed in on their respective portrayals of each half of Firestorm and how that will play out in upcoming episodes. "Our first episode together, we're supposed to have been battling for control mentally against each other for over a year now, so there would be a familiarity -- and we already had that," Amell tells the site, before adding: "We haven't gotten to do too many scenes like that yet, but from what we've shot, there's definitely a frustration with each other. We spend a lot [of time] in my head, battling for control. You spend a year that close to somebody, you need some »
Josh Radnor returned to Broadway this season in Disgraced, and now the How I Met Your Mother star has locked down another role for next season—of a much more musical variety. Radnor will star alongside Laura Benanti in Roundabout Theatre Company’s romantic comedy She Loves Me, the first musical Roundabout ever produced and the first musical announced for the company’s upcoming 50th anniversary season (which also includes Keira Knightley’s Broadway debut and a new production of Noises Off). Roundabout’s associate artistic director Scott Ellis will direct the limited engagement, which will play Broadway in the »

In The Flash midseason finale, "The Man In the Yellow Suit", fans finally learned that none other than Harrison Wells (Tom Cavanagh) was the Reverse Flash, the man responsible for the death of Barry Allen's (Grant Gustin) mother. While it was quite a shocking reveal last month, Grant Gustin himself revealed in a new interview with Entertainment Weekly that, when the show returns tomorrow night with "Revenge of the Rogues", Barry still trusts his mentor Wells, while teasing a major Reverse Flash twist that will come at the end of Season 1.
"Barry is still defending Wells and still trusting of Wells at this point. There's a big twist that even surprised me. I've seen all the predictions online. No one has predicted the big twist that's coming at the end of this season."
The actor also teased new details about "Revenge of the Rogues", and that Barry is trying to »

I've already listed my top ten most anticipated blockbusters of the new year and now I'll take a look at the rest of the field as I've done my best to whittle things down to an even twenty films. So before you get in a huff that your favorite franchises aren't listed, just remember you can view all my anticipated blockbusters right here, I simply didn't know how to write the headline other than to just say these were my most anticipated movies without any further distinction. That said, I think I have a nice rounded list for you here. Obviously several from the major studios, but also a few overseas entries to spice things up. Plenty of Tom Hardy and Jake Gyllenhaal and a couple starring Rachel Weisz along with several of my favorite directors coming with new films for the new year. If you're wondering where films such »

Along with word of "The Flash" scoring the second season renewal over the weekend, a photo has gone up of a display showing the official first Firestorm costume which Robbie Amell's Ronnie Raymond will be donning in an upcoming episode.
Presumed dead in the particle accelerator accident, Ronnie Raymond returned engulfed in flame during the show's midseason finale "The Man in the Yellow Suit" in December. He and Victor Garber's Martin Stein character ultimately combine to become the Firestorm character, at which time it's expected a more advanced costume will be introduced.
"The Flash" returns with the midseason premiere episode "Revenge of the Rogues" on January 20th.

The CW president Mark Pedowitz was on hand at this weekend's TCAs, where it was announced that both Arrow and The Flash have been renewed for additional seasons. Plenty of information was revealed about both shows during the presentation, but longtime DC comics fans were most interested to see the official Firestorm costume that was put on display, which will be worn by Robbie Amell's Ronnie Raymond in an upcoming episode. We also get a second look at the character, as Raymond and Victor Garber's Martin Stein prepare to join forces on The Flash.
Presumed dead, Ronnie Raymond returned engulfed in flame and spectacle during The Flash midseason final The Man in the Yellow Suit this past December. There have been plenty of hints on The CW series that this particular storyline is staying pretty close to the character's comic book origins. Ronnie, of course, has a fragile mental state, »
Earlier today, The CW announced that Arrow and The Flash have been renewed, along with six other shows, during the network's TCA Winter Tour presentation. Network president Mark Pedowitz also revealed that The CW is engaged in "very early talks" with Arrow producers Greg Berlanti, Andrew Kreisberg and Marc Guggenheim for yet another spin-off, based on the Ray Palmer/Atom character played by Brandon Routh. While he hasn't transformed into Atom yet on Arrow, a new trailer released last week showed Palmer constructing his Atom suit, so it seems we'll be seeing him spring into action very soon. Here's what Greg Berlanti had to say about the Atom spin-off.
"We're in very early talks in a very general idea that we haven't gone deeper on yet."
Mark Pedowitz added his own brief statement teasing the possible spin-off.
"You'd have to be judicious. Could there be another hour in that universe? »
TCA 2015: “We should’ve had more women up here today. That’s on me. That’s my fault,” says executive producer
The showrunners of The CW’s superhero dramas “The Flash” and “Arrow” opened themselves up to criticism on Sunday when they delivered a predominantly male “Heroes and Villains” panel at the Television Critics Association press tour in Pasadena. Executive producer Greg Berlanti, who also oversees CBS’s upcoming series “Supergirl,” put the onus on himself.
“We should’ve had more women up here today. That’s on me,” Berlanti told TheWrap and several outlets after the panel concluded. »

The CW just had the biggest panel of this press tour, with 13 actors from "Arrow" and "The Flash" — Stephen Amell, Grant Gustin, Katie Cassidy, John Barrowman, Colton Haynes, David Ramsey, Tom Cavanagh, Brandon Routh, Wentworth Miller, Dominic Purcell, Robbie Amell, Victor Garber and Matt Nable(*) — plus producers Greg Berlanti, Andrew Kreisberg and Marc Guggenheim. Panels that size — particularly involving two different shows, even if they're linked like these two — are usually unwieldy and leave lots of people sitting silently on stage, but this superheroes and villains panel was lively, had a lot of interplay between the two casts, and almost everyone had at least one good line or moment. (The only exceptions: Colton Haynes and Matt Nable from "Arrow," neither of whom got asked anything.) (*) You'll note Cassidy was the only woman from either show. After the panel, Berlanti admitted to a small group of reporters that he had messed up on that. »

We’ve seen a couple of posters, and now we have the first trailer for Big Game, the upcoming survival adventure from Jalmara Helander (Rare Exports: A Christmas Tale), which stars Samuel L. Jackson (Kingsman: The Secret Service) as a U.S. President stranded in the wilderness after Air Force One is shot down, who has to rely on a 13-year-old boy (played by Rare Exports‘ Onni Tommila) for his survival. Check it out below…

“The fate of the most powerful man in the world lies in the hands of a 13-year old boy. Plunged into a deadly game of cat and mouse with only hours to spare, Oskari and the President must team up to survive the most extraordinary night of their lives.”
- Gary Collinson
Having recently premiered at Tiff, Big Game centres upon young Finnish boy Oskari (Onni Tommila), who whilst camping and hunting in the wilderness to prove his readiness for manhood, comes into contact with the President of the United States (Jackson) when Air Force One crash lands in the forest. With a number of assassins on their tail, Oskari must keep the two of them alive until he can get the President to safety.
Check out the trailer and the new poster for the film below.

Back in 2010, Finnish director Jalmari Helander brought the world a creepy Christmas present in the form of feral Santa Claus tale Rare Exports. For his next trick, he’s looking to throw a nod and a wink towards big ‘80s muscle movies with an action-comedy called Big Game, which now has a trailer online. With Samuel L. Jackson, Jim Broadbent, Ray Stevenson, Felicity Huffman, Ted Levine, Victor Garber and Rare Exports’ Onni Tommila among the cast, the film appears to be a blend of Escape From New York and The Most Dangerous Game.Jackson stars as the President of the United States, who is stranded in the Finnish mountains when terrorists blast Air Force One from the sky and he’s parachuted to relative safety in an escape capsule. Struggling to survive in the harsh terrain he meets 13-year-old Oskari (Tommila), who is out there as part of a coming-of-age ritual. »
Try to pick out the single most ridiculous thing about Big Game after watching its trailer. Is it that Samuel L. Jackson plays the President of the United States? Or that he’s thrown into some kind of crazy “Most Dangerous Game” style human-hunting contest for terrorists? Is it that he’s paired up with a kid (Onni Tommila)? Is it that this kid is Finnish and much of this action movie is in Finnish but that won’t stop American audiences who don’t normally watch foreign films to check out Samuel L. Jackson in a movie that’s basically a mix of Air Force One, Die Hard, White House Down/Olympus Has Fallen and Escape from New York, except where the main hero is a kid? (Also some might go see it thinking it’s about a big sports game.) My pick is Jim Broadbent seemingly phoning it in as a spy who himself is »
