New trailer for The Flash

7 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With a little over six weeks to go before The Flash races onto our TV screens, The CW has dropped a brief new trailer for the Arrow spin-off, which you can check out after the official series description…

“After a particle accelerator causes a freak storm, CSI Investigator Barry Allen is struck by lightning and falls into a coma. Months later he awakens with the power of super speed, granting him the ability to move through Central City like an unseen guardian angel. Though initially excited by his newfound powers, Barry is shocked to discover he is not the only “meta-human” who was created in the wake of the accelerator explosion – and not everyone is using their new powers for good. Barry partners with S.T.A.R. Labs and dedicates his life to protect the innocent. For now, only a few close friends and associates know that Barry is literally the fastest man alive, »

Star-Crossed’s Greg Finley cast as Girder in The Flash

21 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Back at the start of this month it was revealed that the DC villain Tony Woodward – a.k.a. Girder – would be making an appearance in The CW’s Arrow spin-off The Flash, and now Zap2It is reporting that Greg Finley (Star-Crossed, The Secret Life of the American Teenager) has secured the role of the Rogue.

According to the site, the S.T.A.R. Labs explosion that sees Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) gaining his powers also results in Woodward finding himself “with the ability to transform his skin into living metal. In the guise of Girder, Tony then goes on a crime spree that only Barry Allen may be able to stop. The connection between the two men doesn’t stop there, however. Back when they were kids, Tony was the bully who used to torment Barry.”

The Flash premieres on the CW on Tuesday October 7th, with »

Greg Finley Joins The Flash As Girder

20 August 2014 3:06 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Earlier this month, we learned that DC Comics supervillain Girder would be making his way to the upcoming CW series The Flash. Now, thanks to Zap2It, we know who will play him and just when he’ll go toe to toe with the scarlet speedster.

Former Star-Crossed and The Secret Life of the American Teenager actor Greg Finley will appear as Girder in episodes six and seven of the upcoming season. His alter-ego, Tony Woodward, is a former childhood bully of Barry Allen’s, and is granted the power of changing his skin into “living metal” after the S.T.A.R. Labs particle accelerator explodes – the same accelerator that gives Barry (and a number of Central City citizens) metahuman powers.

There’s no word yet on whether or not Girder will be one of the Rogues, a team of Flash villains who join forces to take the hero down. »

"The Flash" Chills With 'Captain Cold'

19 August 2014 5:09 AM, PDT | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

According to reports it is now confirmed that actor Wentworth Miller ("Prison Break") will join the cast of "The Flash" as DC Comics' super-villain 'Captain Cold':

'Leonard Snart' aka 'Captain Cold' was created by writer John Broome and illustrator Carmine Infantino as the leader of the 'Rogues' and amortal enemy to 'Barry Allen' aka 'The Flash'.

Snart has no innate superhuman powers, relying on his 'cold guns' and instincts. Over the years Snart had modified his weapons to allow a variety of effects such as a cold beam that freezes anything it hits instantly, creating a cold field where people and objects literally stop in their tracks. 

Cold uses this ability to slow down The Flash's movements, bathing his opponent in a wide beam of ice designed to freeze the skin.

Grant Gustin suits up in new countdown image for The Flash

17 August 2014 2:02 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

We’re now 52 days away from the premiere of The Flash on the CW, a number that’s very near and dear to the folks over at DC Comics. In fact, they named their gigantic company-wide relaunch in 2011 “The New 52.” To celebrate the occasion, The CW released a new official image of series star Grant Gustin in costume as the titular scarlet speedster on Twitter…

This is a great shot of the costume (much better than the first, poorly Photoshopped images we got a few months back), that shows off a nice, clean look at Gustin as Barry Allen, as well as some of the detail of the Flash suit. As you can see, despite a few small touches and a leather material, the design itself is pretty close to the iconic comic book design.

What do you think of this shot of Gustin as the Flash? Are you a fan of the costume? »

Will Gay Drama ‘Love Is Strange’ Shatter Hollywood’s Glass Ceiling?

13 August 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Love Is Strange” is one of the rare movies anchored by gay characters not defined by sex. The story is set in a post-gay-rights Manhattan where marriage is legal for George (Alfred Molina) and Ben (John Lithgow), longtime partners who get hitched in a local park, surrounded by their closest friends. To fund the $1.2 million drama, which Sony Pictures Classics will platform release Aug. 22, director Ira Sachs turned to his community for help. “I got financing from 25 individuals, the majority of whom were retired lesbian businesswomen,” says Sachs over lunch on a recent afternoon in the West Village. “They cared about the story, and believed it could speak to a wide audience.” Sachs says the backers have already turned a profit from worldwide distribution deals out of Sundance and Berlin.

If not for its unconventional financing, “Love Is Strange” might never have found its way to the big screen. While »

'The Flash' Casts Clancy Brown as General Wade Elling

8 August 2014 6:55 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Clancy Brown, who starred in Fox's Sleepy Hollow last season, has signed on for a major recurring role in CW's The Flash as General Wade Elling, debuting in the show's fifth episode. It isn't known exactly how many episodes he will appear in during Season 1.

Last week, we reported that Kelly Frye has signed on to play Sgt. Bette Sans Souci, a.k.a. Plastique, a bomb disposal expert who was given the ability to turn anything she touches into a bomb, due to exposure from the same S.T.A.R. Labs incident that turned Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) into the World's Fastest Man. That report also indicated that, unlike her villainous origins in the comics, Plastique will become an ally to Barry, as she tries to evade government forces.

"The Flash" Gets New Photos, Promo, Villain

7 August 2014 7:07 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

The DC villain character of Girder, aka Tony Woodward, is joining the cast of The CW's "The Flash".

In the comics Woodward was a bratty steelworker who was dunked in a vat of molten metal that had been tainted by S.T.A.R. Labs waste. He emerged as a mass of iron, impervious to most anything (except rust).

In the show, Woodward used to bully young Barry in the schoolyard, and is now can transmute any part of his body into solid steel. The role is said to be a recurring one and will be introduced in the sixth episode of the new season, but it hasn't been cast as yet.

Speaking of Flash villains, the first photos are out of "Prison Break" star Wentworth Miller as Captain Cold, the iconic DC villain with a chilly edge. Miller isn't donning the signature costume in the photos but is sporting »

DC Villain Girder Will Have A Recurring Role On The Flash

6 August 2014 7:29 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The Rogues – a team of supervillains who unite to take down Barry Allen - were just announced to have a presence in the first season of the upcoming Flash series on the CW, with confirmed members being Captain Cold (Prison Break‘s Wentworth Miller), Plastique (NCIS: Los Angeles actress Kelly Frye) and Weather Wizard (Chad Rook). That won’t be all though, as according to a new casting call for the show’s sixth episode, DC Comics character Tony Woodward, a.k.a. Girder, will be on the team as well.

In the comics, Woodward is a steel worker who was dunked in a vat of molten metal and then infected by waste from S.T.A.R. Labs, which turned him into a jumbled mass of metal. He’s a pretty brutal villain with only one major weakness: Rust. Yeah, and you thought Kryptonite was lame…

6 August 2014 11:26 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The producers of the upcoming Arrow spin-off The Flash are wasting little time in building an impressive Rogues gallery for Grant Gustin’s Barry Allen, with TV Line reporting that episode six of the series will introduce Tony Woodward – a.k.a. Girder – as a recurring character.

In the comics, Girder was a steelworker who gained near invunerability after being exposed to S.T.A.R. Labs waste, while the series will depict him as a childhood bully of Barry’s and “a grinning lunkhead who loves destruction [and an] unstoppable force who can transmute any part of his body into solid steel.”

Girder is the third member of the DC villain team The Rogues to appear in The Flash, with Chad Rook (Cult) portraying Weather Wizard in the pilot and Wentworth Miller (Prison Break) set to appear as Captain Cold.

6 August 2014 8:47 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

With Weather Wizard set to appear in the pilot and Wentworth Miller cast as Captain Cold, season one of The Flash is quickly putting together a superpowered rogues gallery for Barry Allen which could soon see the formation of, well, The Rogues! TV Line reports that episode 6 will see the introduction of recurring character, Tony Woodward a.k.a. Girder. In the comics, Woodward is thrown into a vat of molten steel which includes scraps from S.T.A.R. Labs experiments after assaulting a female co-worker. Those scraps convert his body into living iron and imbue him with superhuman strength and a high resistance to harm, though he does rust. However, The CW series describes this version of the character as someone who used to bully young Barry in the schoolyard. Now, as a result of the particle accelerator exploding, Woodward is "a grinning lunkhead who loves destruction," and an "unstoppable force… »
