Arrowverse Villains Pitched A Legion Of Doom Sitcom To The CW

Though the Arrowverse has many awesome heroes, sometimes the villains manage to steal the spotlight. That was definitely the case back in Legends of Tomorrow season 2 in which the gang faced the Legion of Doom, made up of Damien Darhk (Neal McDonough), Malcolm Merlyn (John Barrowman), Eobard Thawne (Matt Letscher) and, later, Captain Cold (Wentworth Miller). The evil league had great comedic chemistry, too, as the bad guys tried to one up each other every chance they got.

It was so good, in fact, that the cast wanted to see them star in their own spinoff sitcom. As crazy as it sounds, that’s apparently an idea that the actors who brought the Legion to life pitched to the execs at The CW. Matt Letscher made the revelation while talking to Discussing Film, saying:

“[Working on Legends of Tomorrow] was a lot of fun; I had a great time with those guys.

‘The Flash: The Complete Third Season’ Review

Over the last few weeks I’ve managed to review quite a few of the DC television shows. The Legends of Tomorrow and Supergirl have been fun to watch, but one thing that has been missing are the crossover episodes that connect the shows with The Flash. Now I’m reviewing The Flash: The Complete Third Season I’m able to complete these (for his stories at least), and of course see the repercussions of Flashpoint.

At the start of season 3, Barry (Grant Gustin) is living the life he always dreamed of. When things start to go wrong though, he finds he has to fix what happens with the aid of Reverse-Flash (Matt Letscher. When he returns everything to normal though, he soon finds messing with time has consequences not only for him, but those around him too.

Moving from Supergirl to The Flash season 3 is quite a jump in tone,

‘DC’s Legends of Tomorrow: The Complete Second Season’ DVD Review

After being scattered through time, the Legends of Tomorrow are saved by Dr. Nate Heywood (Nick Zano). Now though they find themselves up against the Legion of Doom who are determined to get hold of the Spear of Destiny, which will give them the ability to change reality.

Having not seen season one of the show, I was not sure what to expect from the show. What I found is a show that is pleasantly light-hearted, although sometimes it does try a little too hard to be different from all the rest of the shows out there. Thankfully though it doesn’t take itself too seriously, unlike some other superhero shows and movies!

In an attempt to keep Legends of Tomorrow light-hearted entertainment, oftentimes the stories that lack some depth. However a lack of depth in their stories is more than made up for in characterisation, and this is what caught my attention.

Are There More Villainous Speedsters In The Flash's Future?

CW's The Flash may be the most popular television superhero to date. We all remember how excited everyone was to see Grant Gustin show up in Arrow as Barry Allen and then later in his own show. The first season was a big success as he was up against his arch nemesis Eobard Thawne aka the Reverse Flash, played by at the time Tom Cavanagh, who later ended up being played by his real identity, Matt Letscher. Since then, in season two he faced off against another speedster Zoom, played by Teddy Sears, and this last season another speedster, Savitar. It's safe to say that watching the same idea of Barry Allen trying to catch up to another speedster is getting played out.

We have to keep in mind that The Flash is one of the most powerful superheroes in the DC Universe. A perfect example of this is Flashpoint

Top Showrunners Give Their Take on a Writers Strike and the Influence of Trump on TV — IndieWire’s WonderCon 2017 Panel

Top Showrunners Give Their Take on a Writers Strike and the Influence of Trump on TV — IndieWire’s WonderCon 2017 Panel
Put six showrunners from some of TV’s most innovative shows on stage, and right now the talk will eventually turn to the possibility of a writers strike.

And indeed, the question of a strike came up midway through IndieWire’s first-ever Fan Favorites Panel, held Saturday during WonderCon 2017 at the Anaheim Convention Center. “It’s a complicated situation,” said “BoJack Horseman” executive producer Raphael Bob-Waksberg. “Nobody wants a strike… but also the writers would like to be paid fairly for the work that we’re doing. The business has changed a lot.”

Read More: Writers’ Guild Negations Stall as Leaders Call for Strike Authorization

Bob-Waksberg and “Arrow”/”DC’s Legends of Tomorrow” executive producer Marc Guggenheim pointed out that many shows now produce only 10 episodes – which means fewer paychecks for some writers.

Writers Guild of America members will vote later this month on whether to give its board authorization to call a strike.

The Flash season 4: the big bad won't be a speedster

Rob Leane Mar 20, 2017

In a change from the formula, The Flash will face a non-speedy big bad in season 4...

Here's some exciting news: The Flash's upcoming fourth season will throw out the rulebook, and pit Grant Gustin's Barry Allen against a big bad that isn't a speedster. 

After season 1's The Reverse-Flash (Tom Cavanagh/Matt Letscher), season 2's Zoom (Tony Todd/Teddy Sears) and season 3's Savitar (voiced by Tobin Bell), the established formula of speedy season-long villains murdering Barry's loved ones is starting to wear a little thin, making this news very welcome indeed.

The scoop came from PaleyFest via The Hollywood Reporter. At the event, producer Andrew Kreisberg said this: "Next season, we're not going to have a speedster as the main bad guy". Simples. 

"With Savitar, we know who he is, and we've been planning this for a while," Kreisberg added. "The first two seasons

'The Flash' Season 4 Villain Won't Be a Speedster

After three seasons, The Flash is changing things up.

During The CW's Saturday DC Comics TV panel at PaleyFest, executive producer Andrew Kreisberg revealed a big change for season four of the Grant Gustin starrer.

"Next season, we're not going to have a speedster as the main bad guy," Kreisberg said as the packed Dolby Theatre erupted in thunderous applause and cheers.

For show's entire run thus far, every season has been focused around a speedster as a villain, beginning with Reverse-Flash (Tom Cavanagh/Matt Letscher) in season one, continuing with Zoom (Teddy Sears) in season two and mysterious god of...
