New Flash Character Is Not Human

9 January 2017 2:40 PM, PST | | See recent LRM Online news »

A new character will debut in Flash episode 13 and will stick around at least until episode 14, that being the good intentioned leader of Gorilla City (The home of the sentient Apes in the comics, and apparently the CW show Flash), another ape, Solovar. If your left hand is evil, you hold Grodd, and if your right hand has good intentions then you cradle Solovar. This ape has been around the comics for a long time, and while he has had evil tendencies at times, Solovar is typically the logically thinking leader controlling Gorilla City.

Today, we learn that Solovar will join us, and I for one being an Apetivist am happy to learn that not all Gorillas will be evil in the show. Or so we are led to believe. For all we know, Solovar could be highly irritated that Barry threw Grodd into their world, disrupting their ape-lives and Solovar now seeks revenge. »

Vampire Diaries Photos: Sybil Steals Elena's Miss Mystic Falls Look!

9 January 2017 2:37 PM, PST | | See recent news »

That’s it — Sybil has officially gone too far this time!

New photos from The Vampire Diaries‘ Jan. 20 episode (The CW, 8/7c) find the gang reliving one of the show’s most iconic moments with a “who wore it better?” twist. This time around, it’s Sybil — not Elena — descending that grand staircase in a stunning blue dress. (And here I thought the Devil preferred red. Oh, well.)

Barry Allen’s got yet another speedster problem: The Flash executive producer Andrew Kreisberg reveals that Season 2 villain Zoom will resurface as the Black Flash — and in a big way, on multiple CW hero shows.

In DC Comics lore, Black Flash is the “Grim Reaper” of sorts for speedsters, taking them back to the source of their powers, the Speed Force. At the time that TV’s The Flash vanquished Zoom in last May’s finale, the sinister speedster was seen transforming into Black Flash.

And though Neil Patrick Harris voiced the DC Comics villain in the Batman: The Brave and the Bold animated series — and thus has been speculated/hoped to assume the live-action role — The Music Meister has not yet been cast, Berlanti said.

“We’re certainly huge fans of [Harris],” showrunner Andrew Kreisberg later added, »

No Tomorrow, Frequency to Deliver Closure on Digital Side If Not Renewed

The CW’s in-the-works ’70s-set Charmed reboot will not have any ties to the original, beloved CW series — at least not at this time, the network’s top exec said on Sunday.

CW president Mark Pedowitz told reporters at the Television Critics Assoc. winter press tour that, “At this point, it is a self-contained, self-sustained show. There is the power of three element in there, but at this time, it is a very standalone show.”
