Throughout its first season, The CW's hit show The Flash brought in a slew of characters from the DC Comics, and even one character from the original 1990 TV series. Mark Hamill reprised his role as James Jesse, a.k.a. The Trickster, in the Season 1 episode Tricksters, where he helped Barry (Grant Gustin) and Det. West (Jesse L. Martin) foil city-wide attacks by a wannabe Trickster eagerly following in the original's deadly footsteps. With Season 2 just getting under way, ComicBook.com has confirmed that Mark Hamill will be back as the Trickster in the new season.
It hasn't been confirmed when this con man character will make his debut in The Flash Season 2, but Mark Hamill was recently spotted on The Flash set. In last season's Tricksters, it was revealed that this copycat Trickster, Axel Walker, played by Devon Graye, was actually James Jesse's son, who was working with his father the whole time. »
First impressions are promising, as she and model Louis hit it off quite well and enjoy a good laugh at the bar in the below clip:
Louis appears just as nervous, shocked that he's actually on a date with the former X Factor winner.
Alexandra also reveals that she has a huge thing for Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson and Wentworth Miller, as well as a lovely pair of eyes.
"If you've got nice eyes, I won't stop looking at them," she says.
Resident Evil: The Final Chapter may be intended as the action-horror franchise's, um, final chapter, but that's not going to stop the cast from goofing around on set.
Returning star Ali Larter tweeted the image showing the main cast pulling a pose that's hard to describe. Band on the Run-ish, perhaps?
We are very serious and method on set. @iamfraserjames @eoincmacken @rubyrose @millajovovich

It’s only been 5 months since The Flash season one ended but they’ve been a slow 5 months – insert standard joke about how ironic it is for anything to move slowly in the world of the speedster. The first season was chaotic and funny and moving and managed to nicely balance its obligations to fans of the comics (Grodd! Zoom! Grodd! Firestorm! Grodd!) with being accessible to viewers who were going in blind. The show established itself as the lighter, fluffier alternative to the gritty Arrow and gained a legion of fans in the process.
But let’s be honest here. A big selling point of The Flash is the fact that the cast are collectively one of the most attractive groups of people on the planet.
Bless The CW and their casting process, which can be summed up as “if they are unbelievably beautiful and can emote »

Following the release of a clip focusing on “Flash Day” and an Earth-2 villain, The CW has now released another one, this time putting the spotlight on The Flash teaming up with Firestorm (Robbie Amell) to take on future DC’s Legends of Tomorrow team members Captain Cold (Wentworth Miller) and Heat Wave (Dominic Purcell).
Them being in the season two premiere of The Flash is definitely a surprise, and it’s strange that the network would spoil something like that before it airs tomorrow. Regardless, it’s exciting to see and if you’re interested in learning more about what’s set to go down, here’s the synopsis for the episode, which is titled “The Man Who Saved Central City”:
Picking up months after the Singularity attacked Central City, Barry (Grant Gustin) is still struggling to forgive himself for Eddie’s death. Concerned about putting his friends in danger, »

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.

The first is for Arrow, and it reveals that Green Arrow and Diggle won’t be wasting any time in taking the fight to Damien Darhk and H.I.V.E. We also now know it will be Laurel who takes Sara’s body to Nanda Parbat in a bid to bring her back from the dead, something which is going to lead to Matt Ryan’s Constantine showing up in the fourth episode. Here’s the synopsis for “Restoration”:
The growing tension between Oliver (Stephen Amell) and Diggle (David Ramsey) puts both their lives at risk when they go after Damien Darhk (guest star Neal McDonough) and a H.I.V.E. deployed meta-human. Meanwhile, Laurel (Katie Cassidy) talks Thea (Willa Holland) into returning to »

Michael Ironside Guest Stars As Lewis Snart — When Barry (Grant Gustin) and the team find out Captain Cold (guest star Wentworth Miller) has been kidnapped, they form an uneasy alliance with his sister, Lisa (guest star Peyton List). However, Barry feels double-crossed when he finds out Snart is working with his father, Lewis Snart (guest star Michael Ironside) on a heist. Meanwhile, Joe (Jesse L. Martin) is faced with a difficult decision. John Showalter directed the episode written by Julian Meiojas & Katherine Walczak. Spending some time with Captain Cold's family should be a lot of fun, and it's going to be interesting what, if anything, this episode does set up the villain's role in DC's Legends of Tomorrow. There's no mention of Zoom or Jay Garrick here, so we'll have to wait and see if they factor into "Family of Rogues" in any way. For now, be sure to share »
A whole new world -- and a brand new Flash -- are coming in "The Flash" Season 2.

So he's pushing everyone away and is choosing to just protect the city on his own.
However, when a meta-human named »

Fresh from the news that Stephanie Corneliussen (Mr. Robot) is to play Valentina Vostok in The CW’s DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, Comic Book is reporting that veteran actor Peter Francis James (The Losers) has nabbed the role of Dr. Aldus Boardman, an original character who will have ties to Hawkman and Hawkgirl.
The official character description lists Boardman as “a Classics professor at St. Roch University, who has devoted his life to researching the story of Chayara (Hawkgirl) and Prince Khufu (Hawkman) and their link to Vandal Savage. Professor Boardman is our team’s only hope of finding Vandal and destroying him, so they can return home. But when the Legends learn a secret about Boardman, they insist on making him a part of their journey, only to learn the kind of sacrifice it will take to save the world.”

The comic book incarnation of this character possessed the ability to a project a “soul-self” that could fly, become intangible, and cause explosions, but we’ll have to wait and see if this TV-take follows suit in that regard.

Though she did start out as a villain, after she lost her powers, Vostok switched allegiances and began working for the U.S. Government in organizations such as Agency and Checkmate – and it sounds as if her small-screen counterpart could follow a similar path if this description accompanying TV Line’s report is anything to go by:

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. »
After a dramatic and explosive first season, The Flash is set to up the ante even more in Season 2 by introducing a slew of new characters, including this season's main villain, Zoom, voiced by Tony Todd.

Today, The CW has released a new trailer featuring behind-the-scenes footage, which shows the first meeting between Jay Garrick and Barry Allen (Grant Gustin).

In the DC Comics, Jay Garrick was the very first version of The Flash, with Barry »
