It’s been six months since we last we saw The Flash save Central City when racing up a building in a desperate attempt to prevent his hometown from being destroyed by a temporal vortex. The first episode of Season 2 — “The Man Who Saved Central City” — doesn’t concern itself with the immediate aftermath of this event. Instead, the show jumps forward six months and opens with the Scarlet Speedster and Firestorm squaring off with Captain Cold and Heat Wave. As it turns out, it is only a dream and for Barry, saving Central City came at a heavy cost. Still feeling responsible for Eddie’s death, Barry pushes his friends away and is now determined to protect the city all on his own. »

"The Flash" is back for a second season, and I have a few thoughts on the premiere coming up just as soon as I ask for a badge again... "The Man Who Saved Central City" was, unsurprisingly, a very busy episode, given all that had to be resolved from the season 1 finale, along with showing how the characters are all dealing with the deaths of Ronnie, Eddie and Wells/Thawne(*), integrating Professor Stein into the group (at least until he has to leave for the next spin-off), and showing how Central City feels about its local superhero now that he's gone public in a big way. (*) Not discussed, at least for now, is how/if erasing Eobard Thawne from existence affected the timeline. Everything seems to be more or less as it was, and maybe this is a temporal can of worms the show's better off not opening. But Tom Cavanagh »

The Flash Season 2 opens in the aftermath of Eddie's sacrifice and with the Singularity looming above Central City. The characters each suffer and deal with the result of that day in their own way.
BuddyTV caught up with Grant Gustin (Barry), Danielle Panabaker (Caitlin), Carlos Valdes (Cisco), Tom Cavanagh (Dr. Wells/Eobard Thawne) and John Wesley Shipp (Henry) to find out where their characters stand in the season premiere. »
Yes, gaining great power brings with it great responsibility but that does not mean a character cannot revel in the sudden ability to do the seemingly impossible. After a decade of films with tortured protagonists, all in the name of gritty reality, the arrival of the CW’s The Flash series has garnered near universal praise because, for a change, the protagonist is having some fun. Out now from Warner Home Entertainment, The Flash: The Complete First Season is well worth having.
Grant Gustin makes for an appealing and engaging Barry Allen because he’s young and an unlikely hero, who is having fun running faster than the speed of sound. He’s a pumped, hyper-active puppy hero, eager to use his powers for as much good as possible, from helping paint buildings to rescuing stray animals. He wants to do it all and thinks he can.

The latest episode of DC All Access has been released today, and it revolves around what’s to come in the highly anticipated second season of The Flash.
For those of you unfamiliar with DC All Access, it’s a weekly YouTube series put out by DC Comics featuring exclusive interviews such as those in the video above and a general behind the scenes look at all things DC.
In the video, producer Andrew Kreisberg is joined by cast members Grant Gustin, Danielle Panabaker, Carlos Valdes, Candice Patton, Tom Cavanagh and John Wesley Shipp to discuss The Flash’s new abilities in season two as well as the excitement surrounding the opportunity to explore alternate versions of their characters thanks to the introduction of Earth-2.
Season two of The Flash picks up months after the Singularity attacked Central City, as Barry is still struggling to forgive himself for Eddie’s death. »

The Flash’s debut disc release offers a great range of featurettes alongside the action. Here’s our review…
There are two reasons you might be reading this – either you’ve already seen The Flash and you’re wondering if it’s worth buying the disc as well, or you’ve never seen an episode and you’re looking for a recommendation or a stay away warning. We’ll try to cover both bases in our review.
If you’re unfamiliar, The CW’s televisual version of The Flash is a terrifically fun experience. If there’s a comic book movie comparison, it would probably be Sam Raimi and Tobey Maguire’s Spider-Man. This isn’t a dark, gritty superhero story, but an introduction to a character who clearly loves his new powers.
Grant Gustin steps into the lead role wonderfully well – he plays forensic scientist Barry Allen as an awkward nerdy type, »
If you watched The CW’s hit television show The Flash last year, then you were treated to one of the best television adaptations we’ve seen of the Scarlet Speedster in years. Mind you, we watched the TV show in the 90s with John Wesley Shipp and Loved it, but this new version is light years ahead of that.
One of the things the executive producers of the show like to do is toss out Easter eggs to the fans of the DC universe. In the first season alone, we saw the casting Shipp as Barry Allen’s father, as a direct nod in the finale to the very first version of The Flash from the comics.

A portion of Entertainment Weekly's latest Spoiler Room focuses on The Flash and features showrunner Andrew Kreisberg providing one word teasers for each cast member of season 2. Could we be seeing Killer Frost sooner than initially anticipated? And does the tease for Iris hint at the return of Rick Cosnett's Eddie Thawne? Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) -"New love." Iris West (Candice Pattion) - "Face from the past." Caitlin Snow (Danielle Panabaker) - "Brrr." Cisco Ramon (Carlos Valdes) - "Metahuman." Harrison Wells (Tom Cavanagh)- "Alive" Joe West (Jesse L. Martin) - "Stalwart." Ronnie Raymond (Robbie Amell)- "Bravery." Henry Allen (John Wesley Shipp)- "Heart." Jay Garrick (Teddy Sears) - "Broken." Patty Spivot (Shantel VanSanten)- "Delightful." The Flash's creative team has previously stated that even though the season one finale provided a glimpse of Caitlin's comic book alter ego, Killer Frost, the show would take its time telling that transformation. »
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… »

Recently, TV Line chatted with the main cast of CW's hit show, "The Flash" for some new season 2 spoiler goodness at the big 2015 Comic-Con event last weekend in San Diego, California. The cast featured: Grant Gustin, Danielle Panabaker, Candice Patton, Tom Cavanagh, Carlos Valdes and John Wesley Shipp (video below). In the new clip, they revealed that we're going to see pieces of where season 1 left off to start season 2. They confirmed that Barry will get a new girlfriend that's similar to Felicity on Arrow instead of jumping right into a relationship with Iris. As for Iris, she'll need to grieve over Eddie's death for a little while, and more. Check it out,below. Season 2 is due to premiere on Tuesday night, October 6th on The CW. »
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, »
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. [caption id="attachment_485897" align="alignright" width="360"] Image via photographer Rainer Hosch[/caption] Teddy Sears (Masters of Sex) has been cast as Jay Garrick, who is well known to comic book fans as the first DC Comics character to take on the mantle of The Flash. In the TV show, Jay is a mysterious figure who arrives in Central City to warn Barry Allen and his team at S. »

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.
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.

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, »

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 »
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 »
