The Flash at Comic-Con. John Wesley Shipp Teases Henry Allen’s Future in Season 2

21 July 2015 10:26 AM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

One of the biggest new shows from the past TV season is The CW’s latest superhero hit The Flash, the story of Barry Allen (played by Grant Gustin) who becomes the fastest man alive. In Season 1, Barry established himself as a true hero, the guardian angel of Central City, which is filled with meta-humans and continues to offer new threats for him and his team to deal with in the upcoming season. However, before The CW’s The Flash, there was CBS’ Flash series, which premiered back in 1990 with John Wesley Shipp playing the fastest man alive. While he show ended after just one season (the popularity of the superhero genre hadn’t reached the heights that it has today), Shipp thankfully got to return to the world of The Flash as Barry’s great father, Henry Allen in this new series. Henry has been serving a sentence for the death of his… »

Former Supergirl Laura Vandervoort Stuns In New Felix Magazine Photoshoot

15 July 2015 6:00 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

A few days ago, following an interview at San Diego Comic-Con, it was widely rumored that Laura Vandervoort, who portrayed Kara Zor-El/Supergirl on Smallville for five years, was in talks to cameo on CBS' upcoming superhero drama Supergirl, which stars Melissa Benoist (Whiplash) in the titular role. However, it seems as though those reports may have been a tad premature as Vandervoort sent out a tweet the following day to debunk the rumor herself: Just wanted to clarify I'm not in "talks" with the #Supergirl series to be a part of it. I'd love to but no official discussions. Thanks xo — Laura Vandervoort (@Vandiekins22) July 10, 2015 Based on producer Greg Berlanti's history of bringing back former superhero actors, primary examples being John Wesley Shipp on The Flash and Helen Slater & Dean Cain on Supergirl, this doesn't necessarily mean we won't eventually see Vandervoort make an appearance on the show, »

12 July 2015 9:34 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The CW's The Flash was a breakout hit in its first season, so the anticipation is very high for its return this fall. In season two, you can expect to see a lot of emotional and physical fallout from the events that concluded season one, in addition to more romantic entanglements and a lot more speed. Executive Producers Andrew Kreisberg, Geoff Johns and Greg Berlanti joined show stars John Wesley Shipp, Candice Patton, Grant Gustin, Tom Cavanagh, Danielle Panabaker, and Carlos Valdes on stage, where some new casting info was quickly revealed.

Flash Cast Hails Patty Spivot's Arrival, Trades Favorite Cisco One-Liners

11 July 2015 9:20 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Yes, yes, we’re all very worried that Flash newcomer Patty Spivot is going to mess up the good thing between Barry and Iris when she arrives in Season 2. But for goodness’ sake, people, such talk is unseemly: Eddie’s body is barely cold!

Grant Gustin said as much during a stop at TVLine’s Comic-Con interview suite at the Hard Rock Hotel, reiterating that if Iris and Barry ever become a thing, it won’t be for a while.

“Everyone’s grieving about Eddie,” he said.

The Flash: Jay Garrick Confirmed For Season 2

10 July 2015 9:52 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

We already know that more speedsters will be showing up in Central City when The Flash returns for its second season, and now the identity of one such hero has been revealed. According to DC Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns, Jay Garrick will be speeding his way onto television when The Flash returns this fall.

In the comics, Garrick is the original Silver Age Flash, having made his debut in Flash Comics #1 in 1940. After the recent New 52 relaunch, Garrick was made the Flash of Earth 2, one of DC’s several alternate universes. It’s also been revealed that the DC Multiverse will play a part in The Flash‘s sophomore season, and judging by the way Garrick’s iconic winged helmet appeared out of one of the time travel wormholes created by Reverse Flash, that seems the most logical way to introduce the character next year.

Book Review – How To Be A Superhero

James Garcia reviews Mark Edlitz’ new book, How To Be A Superhero…

Each day, the internet is flooded with news stories about each and every piece of development surrounding an upcoming comic book adaptation or superhero film. We here at Flickering Myth spend our days dissecting and discussing those various topics with as much fervor and excitement as any fan out there. Yet, while there are dozens of stories or quotes circling the web at any given time, they usually only pertain to one part of a larger story; actors give brief updates about their upcoming roles, writers and directors talk about various influences, etc.

Enter Mark Edlitz, whose impressive tome How To Be A Superhero puts all of those news reports to shame by diving headfirst into the expansive superhero genre with long, in-depth interviews with dozens of the genre’s veterans, like Adam West, Jack Nicholson, John Wesley Shipp, »

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 »

30 March 2015 11:58 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

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. In an effort to stop him, Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) and Joe West (Jesse L.

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 »
