There's so much DC superhero stuff hidden in the new Justice League movie trailer that we broke it all down for you.
Well, it sure took them long enough, didn't it? We've been waiting since last July for an 'official' trailer for Zack Snyder's Justice League movie. At San Diego Comic Con 2016, Warner Bros. unveiled a reel of footage, but it wasn't what they were officially calling a trailer. But this one is something different, and it reveals lots more about what's actually happening in the movie than that initial footage.
So the first thing you should do before I start overanalyzing every piece of this thing, is you should watch the trailer yourself if you haven't seen it yet.
Here it is...
The biggest thing to note here is that they're still aggressively pushing a very different tone (if not look) from Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice. »

3.16 Into The Speed Force
"You don't like the future, Flash? Change it."
For, I dunno, the third or fourth time this year, I was prepared to write some kind of 500 word variation of "this episode was okay" and then Into The Speed Force decided to shake things up. Again. I've loved this season, and I'm pretty sure that by this time last year the wheels were already starting to come off. There's been no sign of the central premise collapsing this time around and The Flash has gone from strength to strength recently.
But I'll admit, I was sceptical coming in to this one. »
There’s one thing that’s become apparent to me over the years: Once you’ve played an iconic DC character, you may very well find yourself employed for life. In fact, Supergirl is a fine example of this. Kara’s adoptive parents are played by none than Dean Cain and Helen Slater, who previously inhabited the roles of Superman and Supergirl, respectively. Aside from that, not too long ago it was revealed that yet another fan favorite will have the chance to run with the torch again when Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman alumnus Teri Hatcher was announced as having been cast in a mysterious villainous role.
Now, we can probably all agree that it would be somewhat of a letdown if Cain and Hatcher were unable to have an onscreen reunion, even if for only one episode. And although the former is confirmed to return to the show this Monday, »

My favorite superhero TV show these days is The Flash. Heck, it may be my favorite TV show period. Grant Gustin is doing a great job as Barry Allen/The Flash and the stories have wonderful “Easter eggs” for those who know DC continuity. One of the best is casting John Wesley Shipp, who played Barry/Flash in the earlier TV incarnation of The Flash, is in this version first as Barry’s dad and now as Jay Garrick, the Flash of Earth-2.
What also is great is the supporting cast on the show. On The Flash, they’ve even increased by one to include Tom Fenton (perhaps best known as Draco Malfoy in the Harry Potter films) as Barry’s “frenemy”. He’s also joined “Team Flash” as it’s called, even on the show.
This is where the TV versions of the Flash (and the other superheroes) differs from the comics. »
