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 »

The Flash’s Mark Hamill and Andrew Kreisberg Talk Bringing The Trickster Back

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.

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 »

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, »
