Costume Designer Colleen Atwood on Making the Heroes of ‘Flash’ & ‘Arrow’ Look Super

3 June 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Oscar-winning costume designer Colleen Atwood has made a career out of bringing fantasy to life through her lavish creations, but perhaps her most impressive feat is allowing the heroes of “Arrow,” “The Flash” and this fall’s “Supergirl” to fight crime in high style.

Below, Atwood discusses designing the eye-catching ensembles for “Arrow’s” Stephen Amell, “The Flash’s” Grant Gustin and “Supergirl’s” Melissa Benoist.

How do you approach designing a superhero’s look?

Well, in the opportunities I’ve had to do it, I go from a story point, from where the script has put the superhero, and then back into the history of that superhero in the world that [they inhabit], the traditions, and try to come up with something that has a touch of the old, but makes it a fresh kind of superhero.

How much does each individual actor inform their costume’s creation?

Speedsters That Could Show Up In Flash Season 2

21 May 2015 11:06 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

After the epic season one finale of The Flash aired, executive producer Andrew Kreisberg confirmed an early rumor that season 2 would introduce new "Speedsters" to Flash watchers.  Lets rundown some possible candidates for whom Kreisberg could potentially be teasing. As teased in the epic season finale, hopefully one of those Speedsters introduced is original Golden Age Flash, Jay Garrick. When the Flash series was first introduced and 90's Flash actor John Wesley Shipp joined the cast, many fans were hoping he would be Garrick.  Alas, that did not come to pass but Shipp did land an important role as Barry's father.  But who is Jay Garrick?  Created in 1940, Jay Garrick is the original Flash, who is a natural-born metahuman who had his latent powers activated in a lab experiment.  Typically depicted as an elderly man, Garrick was reinvented as a recent college graduate in the 2011 New 52 reboot of »

The Flash Season 1 Episode 23 Review – ‘Fast Enough’

20 May 2015 11:17 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Jessie Robertson reviews the season one finale of The Flash

Let’s just start by saying this finale was awesome! I needed a change of pants after it was over. Not only did it deliver on story, gravitas, & emotion, but the special effects were of another stratosphere and the music was so damn epic, I felt like I was watching a big budget film at times. Kudos and 1,000,000 points to Andrew Kreisberg and Greg Berlanti.

As we open “Fast Enough”, we get a new age spin on the Old West faceoff; Barry opens the Vault under Star Labs and reveals Wells inside. But, in typical Flash fashion, instead of tough talk between two gunslingers, they break it up with levity; Wells is upset Barry didn’t bring Big Belly Burger (a Central City specialty) because “we’re out of cows in our time,” which we find out is 136 years later »

‘The Flash’ Finale Zooms Toward Second Season (Spoilers)

20 May 2015 12:36 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Even for a speedster, “The Flash” chewed up so much ground in its first season that one began to wonder what showrunners Greg Berlanti and Andrew Kreisberg could possibly do for an encore. The answer from the season finale is that only time, apparently, will tell, after a cliffhanger that cast a bit of a cloud over what had otherwise been one of this TV season’s most impressive accomplishments.

For all the well-deserved praise heaped on “Jane the Virgin,” “The Flash” might have been a more delicate balancing act, given the historic mistreatment and malpractice associated with super-powered costumed heroes in primetime. Yes, Jane had to conceive without having sex, but the producers of “The Flash” had to lay the sort of groundwork that allowed for introducing a super-intelligent gorilla named Grodd without eliciting unintended giggles.

Much of that success, in hindsight, can be traced back to the casting »

The CW’s Arrow/Flash spinoff reportedly titled Legends of Tomorrow

21 April 2015 1:19 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It seems we may finally have a title for The CW’s untitled spinoff from Arrow and The Flash, with Variety referring to the project as Legends of Tomorrow during an article on the upcoming pilot season. The title is unconfirmed at present, although The Flash star John Wesley Shipp was quoted as referring to the spinoff as “Legends” during a convention appearance over the weekend.

Legends of Tomorrow (or whatever it turns out to be called) is set to feature Brandon Routh (Ray Palmer/The Atom), Victor Garber (Martin Stein/Firestorm), Wentworth Miller (Leonard Snart/Captain Cold), Dominic Purcell (Mick Rory/Heat Wave) and Caity Lotz, who may or may not be reprising the role of Sara Lance/Black Canary. Also set to join the cast are Ciara Renee (Law & Order: Svu) as Kendra Saunders/Hawkgirl, and Arthur Darvill (Doctor Who) signing on as Rip Hunter.

The Flash Season 1 episode 17 Review – ‘Tricksters’

1 April 2015 11:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Jessie Robertson reviews the seventeenth episode of The Flash

If you only watch one scene, out of context, from The Flash this season, let it be the opening of this episode! We get, in fully computer generated, the race-battle between the Flash and Reverse Flash and it is Yes!

Spoilers ahead (as always)…

“Tricksters” is one of those typically fun episodes a lot of shows do with a guest star, who maybe has a few scenes, and gets the best lines; this episode amplified that formula, by plastering Mark Hamill all over this bad boy and giving us the back story of Harrison Wells. It’s triumphantly fun and intriguing all at the same time. Central City gets bombarded by a viral villain calling himself the Trickster, who released gift wrapped bombs all over a Central City playground, in a pretty disturbing effect, if you really think about it.

‘The Flash': 5 Things to Know About ‘Tricksters’ and Mark Hamill’s Return

31 March 2015 8:31 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Whether you’re a fan of CBS’ 1990 version of “The Flash,” “Star Wars,” or comic book culture in general, the March 31 episode of “The Flash” is sure to satisfy, with genre icon Mark Hamill reprising his ’90s role as one of the Scarlet Speedster’s main antagonists, James Jesse — aka The Trickster — a character that demonstrated the actor’s anarchic chops even before he lent his voice to The Joker for “Batman: The Animated Series” and its many offshoots. While the villain starts out safely behind bars (allowing Hamill to channel his inner Hannibal Lecter), it doesn’t take long for chaos to engulf Central City after a copycat Trickster (Devon Graye) starts pulling from the criminal’s explosive playbook.

Not only is “Tricksters” an unrepentant trip down memory lane for fans of the previous show, it also ties into the larger mythology of the current CW series, progressing the »

In Episode 17 of The CW series The Flash, entitled “Tricksters,” a copycat killer using the name The Trickster (Devon Graye) starts setting off bombs in Central City.

Following a screening of the episode at The CW offices, actor Mark Hamill talked about bringing back The Trickster, working with counterpart Devon Graye, improvising, why it was terribly intimidating to show up on set, why he also enjoys voicing The Joker for various animated projects, his look, working with John Wesley Shipp, and how amazing it is to see the comic book medium getting the respect »

Helen Slater and Dean Cain’s roles in Supergirl revealed?

15 March 2015 1:20 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It was rather exciting fan news when it was announced that former Supergirl Helen Slater and former Superman Dean Cain had joined the cast of CBS’s Supergirl, which will see Melissa Benoist take on the role of Kara Zor-El.

Slater and Cain were announced as joining the cast, but it was not revealed who they would be playing. But those keen eyes at KryptonSite have noted that the show’s IMDb page has listed the actors as playing Fred and Sylvia Danvers, the adoptive parents of Kara.

Of course, this is not an official bit of news as IMDb is often user controlled and can get things wrong. However, Supergirl is being produced by Greg Berlanti, who is also the showrunner on The Flash, which has seen original The Flash star John Wesley Shipp come onto the show as the father of Grant Gustin’s Barry Allen. So, totally within the realms of possibility. »

'Supergirl': Are Helen Slater & Dean Cain Playing Kara's Parents?

13 March 2015 5:31 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

At the tail end of last month, it was announced that Helen Slater, who played Kara Zor-El in the 1984 Supergirl movie, and Dean Cain, who portrayed Superman in the 1990s TV series Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman, have joined the DC Comics adventure series Supergirl for CBS. At the time, their roles were being kept a secret. Now, it seems their characters have been revealed by IMDb.

According to the Internet Movie Database, which is not always accurate, Helen Slater will be playing Sylvia Danvers, while Dean Cain takes on the role of Fred Danvers. The married couple are Kara Danvers' (aka Kara Zor-El) foster parents, who take in the young girl after she flees Krypton before the destruction of her home planet. While this news has not been confirmed, it makes a lot of sense, and sounds like perfect stunt casting. It also falls in line with »
