“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 »

The Flash is about to meet one of Harrison Wells’ prodigal sons: the super-intelligent Hartley Rathaway, aka the Pied Piper!
On tonight’s all-new episode, titled “The Sound and the Fury,” Hartley (played by Smash’s Andy Mientus) returns to Central City to seek revenge on his former mentor (Tom Cavanagh) after being affected by the particle accelerator explosion. A manipulator of sound waves, he just may be Dr. Wells and Barry Allen’s (Grant Gustin) toughest match yet.
Translating the Pied Piper from comic form to the small screen could have been a Herculean task, but emphasis on realism helped hone in on the character’s true essence.

“Like many of the comic book characters, they sometimes are a little bit silly. The Pied Piper [in the comics] dressed a little flamboyantly and he would play his pan flute to warp people’s minds. We wanted »
Plenty of films have documented the salacious nature of infidelity in the past, whether it be a breezy subplot for a romantic comedy or the center of attention in a more drama-oriented project. For The Loft, Erik Van Looy’s thriller very much falls into the latter category, telling the story of five well-to-do men who think they’ve concocted the ultimate plan of deceit when they pitch in to purchase a sleek penthouse in the middle of the city, providing them with a concrete outlet for extra-martial affairs and the like.
But when the dead body of an unknown woman appears in the twisted apartment, their seemingly bulletproof plan begins to fall away at the seems, and their relationship between one and other is also put to the test.

Synopsis: Barry finds himself face-to-face with his nemesis, the man in the yellow suit, a.k.a. Reverse Flash, who killed his mother.
After eight episodes of the superb superhero television show, we have now arrived at the mid-season finale. With the bar set higher than ever after Barry and his friends crossed paths with team Arrow in the preceding two-part story (check out my review), ‘The Man in The Yellow Suit’ has an awful lot to live up to. Thankfully, this delightfully festive story delivers yet another great hour of action, whilst also (finally) revealing the true identity of the man who murdered Barry’s mother.
The episode begins with a high-speed chase through central city between The Flash »

You can’t keep a successful franchise down, not even with a newborn baby. Last year, Milla Jovovich and her husband director Paul W.S. Anderson announced they were expecting a second child together, which delayed the filming of the final film in the Resident Evil franchise, The Final Chapter. But word from Jovovich on her Facebook page suggests she is almost ready to return.
Says Jovovich, “I’m really proud of myself for not gaining the same amount of weight that I did with our first child (75 lbs.) because I have to be ready to start filming Resident Evil- The Final Chapter in August of this year and I will also be nursing an infant simultaneously.”
Shooting was set to roll in Cape Town, South Africa for what is set to be the last part in the long-running Resident Evil franchise, after the last one part, Retribution, was released in 2012.
Targeting a September 2016 release, »

"Resident Evil" star Milla Jovovich revealed last summer that the upcoming sixth and final film in that series, "Resident Evil: The Final Chapter," would delay production due to her falling pregnant with her second child with husband/director Paul W.S. Anderson.
This week, the actress has done a post on Facebook indicating that the film's new schedule is in place and shooting will begin this August:

Last June, director Paul Ws Anderson offered an update on Resident Evil 6, the supposed last instalment in the zombie action franchise. At the time, his comments mainly revolved around the film’s format, 3D, and the scripting process (he was halfway finished) indicating it probably wouldn’t meet its September 2014 release date.
Fast forward a few months and production was gearing up for an end-of-year shoot… which then collapsed after leading lady Milla Jovovich fell pregnant. Now, the actress has spoken out (via Facebook) about her pregnancy, and sneakily popped in a comment about the shoot for Resident Evil – The Final Chapter:
“I’m really proud of myself for not gaining the same amount of weight that I did with our first child (75 lbs.) because I have to be ready to start filming ‘Resident Evil- The Final Chapter’ in August of this year and I will also be nursing an infant simultaneously. »

The Flash, Season 1, Episode 10, “Revenge of the Rogues”
Directed by Nick Copus
Airs Tuesdays at 8pm Et on the CW
The CW’s hit series came back from its mid-season break with “Revenge of the Rogues,” an action packed hour juggling many subplots and further building the DC universe. When last we saw our hero, he was defeated by the mysterious Man in the Yellow Suit, but thanks to a wild card in Firestorm, the Scarlett Speedster made out with his life. That encounter plays heavily into the show’s mid-season premiere which opens with Barry’s narration changed to reflect his battle with the Reverse Flash, followed by Barry working on improving his speed through various training exercises that force him to dodge drones piloted by Cisco (How cool was that?). While it might be quite some time before the Reverse-Flash is seen again, »
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. »
Heat Wave and Captain Cold “aren’t friends, but they do have a kind of intimacy and that’s been fun to explore,” Miller tells TheWrap

But when they spoke to TheWrap during an on-set press visit in Vancouver, they said their focus was trained on thwarting Grant Gustin’s titular hero.
“[Captain] Cold and Heat Wave work together to bring down the Flash and we’ve got our guns, »
