The season one finale of Legends of Tomorrow featured a huge revelation when the existence of the Justice Society of America was confirmed in The CW’s corner of the DC Multiverse. While you might think that the series will keep us waiting until revealing more about that beloved superhero team, it actually looks like it will waste no time in addressing their presence.
As you can see below, the second episode of season two will be titled “The Justice Society of America,” and that points to them playing a key role in Legends of Tomorrow from the very start.
Who will make up the team obviously remains to be seen, but we know that Hourman is a member, while other new addition to Legends of Tomorrow this year include Citizen Steel and an earlier version of Vixen. Will we see John Wesley Shipp’s Jay Garrick as a member as well? »

Justice Society of America! Who do you think we'll see?! pic.twitter.com/W8ddveKI4U — Caity Lotz (@caitylotz) July 20, 2016 Ahead of Saturday's Sdcc panel for DC's Legends of Tomorrow, White Canary actress Caity Lotz took to Twitter to reveal that the Jsa will appear in the show's second season. We already know Rex Tyler aka Hourman (Patrick J. Adams) will appear, along with Dr. Nate Heywood aka Citizen Steel (Nick Zano). We'll also see an early ancestor of Mari McCabe (Megalyn Echikunwoke), Amaya Jiwe (Maisie Richardson-Sellers) weilding that Tantu Totem. But who else will appear? Could John Wesley Shipp's Jay Garrick be a member? Depending on what time period (and what dimension) the team is operating in, we might also see past versions of Hawkman (Falk Hentschel ) and Hawkgirl (Ciara Renée ). Who do you want to see on the Jsa? The second season premieres Thursday, October 13 on The CW. »
In this special pre-sdcc edition of The Week in Spandex, we look at Suicide Squad, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Batman, Supergirl, Constantine, Gotham, Powerless, The Lego Batman Movie, Thor: Ragnarok, Captain America: Civil War, Luke Cage and more…
With the San Diego Comic-Con International kicking off across the Pond today, we’re expecting the customary flood of superhero news, and will be posting a special Sdcc edition of The Week in Spandex this coming Monday (or maybe Tuesday, if it takes that long). And so, here’s a quick and abridged round up off all the superhero news since the last regular Saturday edition of Twis…
…First up is Suicide Squad, which will be showcased as part of Warner Bros.’ big panel on Saturday ahead of its impending release; before then, the studio has given us some new footage to sink our teeth into courtesy of character trailers »

With San Diego Comic-Con kicking off in just a matter of days, we should all brace ourselves for an onslaught of news that only this time of year can bring. According to Bleeding Cool, they’ve heard some rumblings concerning not only ill-fated fan favorite Constantine, but also characters such as Batwoman and Oracle, which should excite many a fan.
Let’s start off with what I find to be the most intriguing: Batwoman/Kate Kane may have a recurring role this season when Supergirl makes its way to The CW. With Maggie Sawyer joining the show, it makes sense that her ex-girlfriend pop in to National City from time to time. I fully admit that even I would have previously thought the inclusion of a Batman Family character of this magnitude to be impossible, but with Superman putting in a few appearances at the start of Season 2, the door »

With the San Diego Comic-Con fast approaching, it’s only natural for rumours to start popping up suggesting what big announcements could be in store from the studios and networks at the pop culture event. Well, here’s a rather huge one concerning The CW’s Arrowverse, which comes by way of Bleeding Cool, who have a decent(ish) track record when it comes to DC’s small screen projects.
According to the site, The CW’s new acquisition Supergirl is set to see the addition of Kate Kane / Batwoman and Barbara Gordon / Oracle, and their will be modeled after Chuck Dixon’s Birds of Prey, albeit with Batwoman instead of Black Canary. Supergirl has recently cast the character of Maggie Sawyer, who has been in a relationship with Batwoman in the comic books, so it would not be too surprising if Kate Kane soon followed.

A spoilerific look into the next season of the CW hit.
Last Tuesday, DC revealed that Wally West (Keiynan Lonsdale) will don an adapted version of the Kid Flash costume in the premiere episode of The Flash Season 3 entitled “Flashpoint”. The surprise posting, along with official confirmation of the title alluded to in the Season Two finale and “leaked” on Twitter last month, were only the first newsworthy developments from the show’s first week of filming.
As early as Tuesday afternoon, various sources began to tweet set photos depicting Londsdale with a mysterious new speedster apparently played by Australian actor Todd Lasance. Americans may remember Lasance from roles in The Vampire Diaries and Spartacus: War of the Damned, but he has a much more extensive acting history in his home country. Considering that the CW has not announced his casting, Lasance »

"...'Caitlin' (Danielle Panabaker) decides that she and 'Barry' (Grant Gustin) need to move on from 'Ronnie' (Robbie Amell) and 'Iris' (Candice Patton) and find new loves, so she takes him for a night out at the local karaoke bar.
"When Barry tells Iris he has a date, Iris is surprised by her own jealous reaction. Meanwhile, 'Cisco' (Carlos Ramon) considers the dangerous offer made by 'Hartley' (Andy Mientus), as the team searches for 'Shawna' (Britne Oldford), a 'meta-human' with teleportation powers, who just busted her boyfriend 'Clay' (Micah Parker) out of 'Iron Heights'. »

Spoiler Warning: In talking about the season finale of The Flash TV show, I’m going to tell a few secrets. If you haven’t seen it yet and are planning to watch it later, then you may want to also read this column later.
Geek Warning: if you have no interest in superheroes or superhero TV shows, well, if you Do feel that way, what are you doing on ComicMix in the first place?
The CW’s The Flash wound up its second season this week and has re-affirmed its place in my heart as the best superhero show on TV. Well, I don’t watch all of the superhero shows but it’s my favorite of the ones I do watch.
The show has a great cast, strong writing, and a great love of the source material. This comes out in little “Easter eggs.” They’re details that, »

Spoilers for last night's season two finale of The Flash on The CW. In an epic flashback to the 1990s Flash TV series and the DC Comics, the audience learned the identity of Zoom's prisoner -- The Man in the Iron Mask.
It was Earth-3's Jay Garrick, DC's original Flash, played by John Wesley Shipp. The actor played Earth-1's Henry Allen, Barry Allen's (Grant Gustin) father, who was just killed off. Shipp, of course, also played Barry aka The Flash in the 1990 version of The Flash TV show, which was cancelled after one season on CBS.

Is Barry Allen still Flash after the season finale?
The sophomore season of The Flash has had its ups and downs this season but that was to be expected. After a stellar first season it was going to be really hard for the producers and writers to match the level of expectations everyone going into the season. Ultimately every show is judged by how well the finale ties all the conflicts up at the end and where our heroes will go next. Last night’s finale for The Flash had some minor flaws but overall was a great ending to this story. Grant Gustin has become a phenomenal actor as he has grown into the role of Barry/Flash. Except for about 5 minutes of this show it was jammed with intense emotions mainly set off from the death of Henry Allen.
One of the issues I had with last weeks »

RelatedThe Flash Season 2 Finale Recap: A Kiss Before Flying
As the CW hit brought its sophomore run (heh) to a close, Barry was left shaken and stirred not by his clever triumph over Zoom, but by the sight of the unmasked Man in the Iron Mask — Earth-Three’s Jay Garrick (played by John Wesley Shipp), who’s the spitting image of his freshly murdered father, Henry Allen. Rattled as he was and desperate, as he told Iris, to find some semblance of elusive “peace, »
Season two of The Flash concluded this week, with a finale jam-packed with plot twists and, yes, even a long-awaited kiss. The team defeats Zoom, and we finally find out who the "man in the iron mask" is: Jay Garrick - as in the original Jay Garrick, not the nightmare of a person who turns out to be Zoom. That's not even the best part! It turns out that Jay is the Earth-3 doppelgänger of Barry's dad, you know, the one who Zoom just murdered. It's a shock for Barry to see a man who looks just like his father again, but it's even crazier when you realize that John Wesley Shipp, the man who plays Henry Allen/Jay Garrick, was the original Flash on the short-lived series in 1990. Check him out: Here he is out of the suit; you're welcome. Who else suddenly really misses the '90s? Anyway, »

Have you been left bamboozled by The Flash’s season 2 finale? Let us try and help with that. Spoilers...
As you'd expect, this article contains spoilers for The Flash's season 2 finale.
The Race Of His Life has been and gone, leaving us rather shocked and overflowing with questions (well, we have four questions... but that sounds a lot less dramatic, doesn’t it?). For a while, The Flash’s season 2 swansong felt like a fairly normal finale: Zoom was dispatched into The Speed Force, Barry and Iris snogged and everyone was heading back to their respective universes. Job done.
But then That Big Thing happened at the end, majorly messing up the entire history of the show and resulting in a fair bit of head scratching. We’ll get to that bit in due course, but first let’s tackle the other three questions...

Spoiler Alert: This story contains details of tonight's Season 2 finale of The Flash. So that Man in the Iron Mask? He looks a lot like The Flash — the one from 1990, that is. Tonight’s Season 2 finale of the CW’s The Flash revealed the face of the Man in the Iron Mask, aka Jay Garrick, and it was none other than actor John Wesley Shipp, best known for playing Barry Allen way back on the 1990s CBS version of the series. Tonight, Barry Allen… »

The season two finale of The Flash was full of shocking twists and turns, but perhaps the biggest one was the reveal that the Man in the Iron Mask is the real Jay Garrick from Earth-3. And, much to the shock of Barry Allen, Jay is the doppelgänger of the hero’s father (who was murdered by Zoom in last week’s penultimate episode).
At the end of the finale, Jay travelled to Earth-2 with Harrison Wells and his daughter Jesse, while Barry travelled back in time to save his mother’s life, a decision which will alter the timeline in a huge way as we move into season three, essentially rebooting the series until things are hopefully restored to normal somewhere down the line.

A review of The Flash season finale — but mainly thoughts on the final scene — coming up just as soon as I watch Transformers in 4D... Even if the last two minutes of "The Race of His Life" had been less surprising and status quo-altering, I don't know that I'd have much to say about the rest of it. As discussed a few weeks ago, Zoom turned out to be a much less interesting rip-off of Reverse-Flash, killing off Henry immediately after a (great) episode that allowed Barry to get over his grief for his mother was a pretty trite way to generate drama and, as Barry himself noted tonight, keep him from ever feeling really happy(*), and there was no tension, surprise, or emotion to most of what happened as Team Flash took down Zoom once and for all. There was no way Joe was going to be stranded on »

The following recap, by the very definition of the word “recap,” contains spoilers from the Season 2 finale of The CW’s The Flash.
RelatedThe Flash‘s Man in the Iron Mask Speaks: Season Finale Twist ‘Blew My Mind Right Off Its Hinges!’
Picking up right where we left off, Barry hovers over his father’s dying, mauled body, crying, “Dad don’t leave me, not again.” Standing nearby, Zoom taunts his rival: “You feel the anger, don’t you, Flash? Now, the two of us are the same.” A fight/chase around town ensues, ending with Barry poised to »
How about that reveal, y'all? The Flash's season two finale gave us an answer we've been craving for at least half of the season—among many, many other things—who, exactly, the Man in the Iron Mask was. In true Flash fashion, it turned out to be mind-blowing in the most wonderful of ways. Although we had to say goodbye to Henry Allen after a truly tragic death (dammit, Zoom!), that's not the end of John Wesley Shipp on the show. It turns out that the man Zoom was holding prisoner in his lair on Earth-2 had a very familiar face. Like many suspected, it was the real Jay Garrick—but with two extra special twists: he's from Earth-3, and he's played by Shipp (who played The Flash »
