‘The Flash’ Sneak Peek: 7 Things To Know About What’s Ahead

17 March 2015 10:34 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The Flash” certainly hasn’t been afraid to race through plot twists in its freshman season, and the March 17 episode, “Out of Time” promises to be a game-changer in terms of the show’s trajectory.

“With no disrespect to any of the other directors or episodes that we’ve produced, I think this is the best episode we’ve ever done,” executive producer Andrew Kreisberg told reporters at a recent preview screening. “It’s everything that ‘The Flash’ can do as a TV show — I feel like this episode delivers in spades. It’s got amazing visual effects that you just don’t see on television; it’s full of heart; it’s full of romance; it’s full of genuine scares and it’s really the best version of the show.”

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 »

Are These Helen Slater & Dean Cain's Roles In Supergirl?

13 March 2015 2:37 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Late last month, we learned that CBS' Supergirl, which stars Melissa Benoist as the titular heroine, had cast Helen Slater (Supergirl) and Dean Cain (Lois & Clark: The New Adventures Of Superman) in mystery roles. Well, thanks to KryptonSite's keen eye, we may have learned who the duo may be playing. The Internet Movie Database (IMDb) has the pair listed as playing Fred & Sylvia Danvers, Kara's foster parents. It'd probably be wise to take this bit of news with a grain of salt for now as IMDb is not always the most reliable source, but it wouldn't be surprising for the show to take this route especially after CW's The Flash, another Greg Berlanti-run show, cast former Flash, John Wesley Shipp, as Barry Allen's father Henry. We likely won't get official word for a while, but if proven true, it's likely we'll see the pair in a recurring capacity, similar »

Dean Cain And Helen Slater’s Secret Supergirl Roles Revealed?

13 March 2015 10:28 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Late last month, former Superman and Supergirl Dean Cain and Helen Slater (from Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman and 1984’s Supergirl, respectively) joined the cast of CBS’ upcoming Supergirl series in top secret guest roles. Now, courtesy of Kryptonsite, their parts in the show may have been revealed.

The site has noticed that Cain and Slater are now listed as Fred and Sylvia Danvers, the foster parents of the titular Kryptonian, Kara Zor-El, on iMDB. Due to the fact that iMDB is reliably unreliable and can often come with casting lists made by fans, this news should be taken with a grain of salt. However, if you look at some casting history for old DC television shows, these roles certainly make sense.

The Flash on the CW (which shares executive producers with Supergirl) currently stars former scarlet speedster John Wesley Shipp as Barry Allen’s father. Smallville, meanwhile, »

Helen Slater, Dean Cain Join CBS' "Supergirl"

28 February 2015 9:42 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Two former superbeings are set to join the cast of CBS' upcoming "Supergirl" TV series - Dean Cain and Helen Slater. TV Line reports that the pair will guest star on the series, but their roles are being kept secret for now.

Cain played Clark Kent/Superman in the 1990s TV series "Lois and Clark," while Slater played Supergirl herself in the 1984 feature film alongside Faye Dunaway and Peter O'Toole.

Both Cain and Slater previously guest starred on another Superman-related series, The CW's "Smallville," which also saw Cain's former co-star Teri Hatcher and big screen Superman Christopher Reeve in guest starring roles.

Indeed, the precedent is becoming quite common these days. The CW's "The Flash" using the original 1990s TV series star John Wesley Shipp in the role of Barry Allen's father in the current incarnation. »

With several main characters already cast, CBS' Supergirl has added two more actors that many superhero fans will surely get a kick out of. 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, according to a TV Line report. Unfortunately, the site doesn't specify which characters they will be playing.

Helen Slater and Dean Cain join a burgeoning cast that already includes Melissa Benoist as Kara Zor-El, Mehcad Brooks as Kara's neighbor and co-worker Jimmy Olsen, Calista Flockhart as Kara and Jimmy's employer and CatCo founder Cat Grant, Laura Benanti as Kara's Kryptonian birth mother Alura Zor-El, Chyler Leigh as Kara's foster sister Alex Danvers and David Harewood as Hank Henshaw, who, in the DC Comics, eventually becomes Cyborg Superman.

'Flash' Set Photos Reveal Mark Hamill as the Trickster

5 February 2015 5:12 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Back in December, we reported that The CW brought on Mark Hamill to guest star as James Jesse, a.k.a. The Trickster on The Flash, reprising the role he originated on the short-lived 1990 TV series. The actor was recently in Vancouver filming his guest-starring spot for the show's 17th episode, and we have the first photos of the actor in costume as The Trickster. The initial report also revealed that there will be another Trickster, played by Devon Graye, a young copycat who has taken over The Trickster, and we also have our first look at him in costume as well.

The episode, which does not have a title at this time, will also reunite Mark Hamill with John Wesley Shipp, who played The Flash in the original 1990 series and now plays the father of Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) in The CW series. In the episode, Mark Hamill's »

‘The Flash': John Wesley Shipp on Reuniting with Mark Hamill and Revisiting the Trickster

3 February 2015 1:19 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Few actors can claim that they’ve appeared in multiple iterations of a fan-favorite franchise, but John Wesley Shipp and Mark Hamill are two such men. Shipp played Barry Allen in CBS’ 1990 version of “The Flash,” and now plays Barry’s (Grant Gustin) father, Henry Allen, in The CW’s successful reboot. This week, Shipp is filming alongside “Star Wars” veteran (and fellow ’90s “Flash” alum) Mark Hamill, who is reprising his original role as the Scarlet Speedster’s nemesis, James Jesse, aka The Trickster.  (Spoilers ahead.)

We won’t see Hamill on screen until the 17th episode of “Flash’s” freshman season, but Variety spoke to Shipp about reuniting with his former costar and what’s ahead for Henry now that his son has come face to face with the man responsible for murdering Barry’s mother, the Reverse Flash — who, unbeknownst to Barry, is actually his Star Labs mentor, »
