"The Flash" came back strong in its Season 2 premiere on Tuesday night, which featured a number of big twists.
(Spoiler Alert: This story contains major plot details from the premiere episode, "The Man Who Saved Central City." Watch the episode before reading this story!)
Team Flash hasn't just lost Eddie Thawne. As The Flash (Grant Gustin) ran as fast as possible to contain the singularity that opened up in the skies above Central City (an event that began in the Season 1 finale), Ronnie Raymond (Robbie Amell) and Professor Stein (Victor Garber) combined into Firestorm during the ...

"The Flash" is back for a second season, and I have a few thoughts on the premiere coming up just as soon as I ask for a badge again... "The Man Who Saved Central City" was, unsurprisingly, a very busy episode, given all that had to be resolved from the season 1 finale, along with showing how the characters are all dealing with the deaths of Ronnie, Eddie and Wells/Thawne(*), integrating Professor Stein into the group (at least until he has to leave for the next spin-off), and showing how Central City feels about its local superhero now that he's gone public in a big way. (*) Not discussed, at least for now, is how/if erasing Eobard Thawne from existence affected the timeline. Everything seems to be more or less as it was, and maybe this is a temporal can of worms the show's better off not opening. But Tom Cavanagh »

Yes, gaining great power brings with it great responsibility but that does not mean a character cannot revel in the sudden ability to do the seemingly impossible. After a decade of films with tortured protagonists, all in the name of gritty reality, the arrival of the CW’s The Flash series has garnered near universal praise because, for a change, the protagonist is having some fun. Out now from Warner Home Entertainment, The Flash: The Complete First Season is well worth having.
Grant Gustin makes for an appealing and engaging Barry Allen because he’s young and an unlikely hero, who is having fun running faster than the speed of sound. He’s a pumped, hyper-active puppy hero, eager to use his powers for as much good as possible, from helping paint buildings to rescuing stray animals. He wants to do it all and thinks he can.

Last week, The CW Network released a trailer for Season 2 of The Flash, which teased that DC's Legends of Tomorrow star Franz Drameh (Jay Jackson) will eventually become the new Firestorm. While it isn't known when this transition will actually happen, the network has released another trailer which shows the return of current Firestorm, played by Robbie Amell. It's worth noting that the other half of Firestorm, Victor Garber's Dr. Martin Stein, will also be one of the series regulars on DC's Legends of Tomorrow.
Last week's trailer revealed a brief glimpse of Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) alongside DC's Legends of Tomorrow character Jay Jackson (Franz Drameh), who is seen wearing a modified version of the Nuclear Man suit worn by Robbie Amell last season. It isn't known when Franz Drameh will appear on The Flash, but it seems his appearance will help set up the new Firestorm that »

“Sicario” means “hitman” in Mexico, as the audience learns at the start of the film of the same name. Although there is indeed a hitman in Mexico, little is straightforward in this mysterious thriller from Denis Villeneuve, the director of “Prisoners” and “Incendies.”
Those films are filled with shades of gray and uncertainties, and pivot on unexpected twists. Those who saw his previous films will know what to expect in pacing and tone, and that this Canadian director has a taste for murky, unsettling almost-horror film-like suspense. However, people who have seen the movie trailers for Sicario and are expecting a straightforward action film with Emily Blunt kicking butt likely will be surprised. Blunt does play the central character, and she is indeed tough stuff, but the film she is in may not be the one you expect.
Blunt plays Kate, a fast-rising young Arizona policewoman who »

With The Flash returning for Season 2 next week, there are still several questions fans are awaiting answers for. One of those questions is the fate of Firestorm, a character formed by the merging of Dr. Martin Stein (Victor Garber) and Ronnie Raymond (Robbie Amell). Robbie Amell has confirmed that he will be back on The Flash, but Victor Garber will eventually be transitioning to The CW's midseason series DC's Legends of Tomorrow, airing next spring. Today we have a new Season 2 trailer for The Flash, which reveals that there will be a brand new version of Firestorm in both shows.
The trailer reveals a brief glimpse of Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) alongside DC's Legends of Tomorrow character Jay Jackson (Franz Drameh), who is seen wearing a modified version of the Nuclear Man suit worn by Robbie Amell last season. It isn't known when Franz Drameh will appear on The Flash, »
It's known that the character of Firestorm on The CW's "The Flash" is about to undergo a change. In the first season Ronnie Raymond (Robbie Amell) and Martin Stein (Victor Garber) combined to form the super-powered fiery being.
With Robbie Amell not being a part of the upcoming spin-off series "DC's Legends of Tomorrow," many were wondering how Firestorm would be worked into that show. Then came the casting of Franz Drameh as Jay Jackson, the character who will serve as the new Firestorm co-host.
Today, a new behind-the-scenes featurette for "The Flash" second season went online showing Drameh as Firestorm next to Grant Gustin as The Flash, the clip though has since been pulled but you can see the key screen cap above.
This would indicate the Jackson/Firestorm switchover element will take place in "The Flash" and should be all sorted by the time 'Legends' rolls around mid-season. »

It’s been a busy day for The Flash. Following the release of a promo giving us our first look at Zoom and a stunning new poster, The CW has now debuted a featurette which reveals the show’s new Firestorm.
With Robbie Amell not set to star in DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, but Victor Garber’s Dr. Martin Stein and Firestorm clearly present, fans have been wondering how the character will be included. Well, as was previously rumoured, the video above confirms that Franz Drameh’s Jay Jackson (a newly created character) will be the new Firestorm.

The most engaging thing about Denis Villeneuve‘s Sicario is the sheer vehemence of its ferocity. It is no lackluster portrayal of what the American Dream isn’t – the lack of liberty, freedom or rights, nor what the heartbreaking reality of Mexico’s harsh streets is. It is content with sprawling the graphic, and at times what might be considered unnecessary, violence across the screen but ultimately, is a reflection of the core themes that it so brashly explores; perhaps even offering a social commentary on that which is so infrequently discussed.
We follows Kate (Emily Blunt), a hard-boiled and even harder working FBI Agent as she and her partner Reggie (Daniel Kaluuya) get unequivocally dragged into the cut-throat world of the lucrative, albeit deadly, Mexican Cartel. Perhaps the bestpart of the film is Blunt in her entirety, she is an absolute unflinching triumph who provides a mesmerising performance as »

Chicago – Seeing the man behind the curtains in “The Wizard of Oz” really was when so many of us truly understood what “behind the scenes” means. Today, we’re fascinated by FBI and CIA stories because they grant us top-secret security clearance we’ll otherwise never have.
But “Sicario,” which means hitman in Spanish and co-stars Benicio Del Toro and Emily Blunt, does more than just lift the dirty rug on the Mexican drug war. It poses harrowing moral questions many of us are too nervous to be asked let alone prepared to actually answer.
Emily Blunt as Kate Macer realizes she’s been wasting her time on small-time work that’s not scratching the surface of the dangerous and clandestine cartel world. Given the volunteer opportunity to witness the true underbelly with a different class of law enforcement, she can’t resist. At first we think it’s her curiosity, »

Directed by Denis Villeneuve
Québec born director Denis Villeneuve has come a long way since breaking onto the scene with 2000’s Maelström, the film that truly put his talent on the map for all to admire. Now, with Sicario, he has an action-thriller, American production starring Emily Blunt, Benicio del Toro and Josh Brolin with his signature on it. Villeneuve appears to have succeeded where several other non-American directors that tried to make into Hollywood have failed. José Padhila (Robocop 2014), Jee-woon Kim (The Last Stand), some very, very talented directors collaborating with very talented people did not reach the level of critical acclaim and box office success that Villeneuve has in his relatively short American career. Sicario is as big as his projects have gotten thus far, to say nothing of what is coming next: a Blade Runner sequel in collaboration with his Prisoners partner, »

While we still have many months left until DC's Legends of Tomorrow debuts this spring on The CW, the cast continues to fill out. TV Line reports that Mr. Robot actress Stephanie Corneliussen has signed on to play the DC Comics character Valentina Vostok, a.k.a. Negative Woman. While it isn't known exactly when she will make her debut on the superhero series, the actress will have a multi-episode arc.
Valentina Vostok was created by Paul Kupperberg and Jim Aparo, debuting in Showcase #94 which hit the shelves in August 1977. In the comics, Valentina was a Russian Air Force pilot who stole an experimental Russian plane so she could defect to the United States. During her flight, the plane malfunctioned and she crash landed in the same spot that the Doom Patrol had died, causing her to be fused with the energy of Negative Man, turning her into Negative Woman. »
