The Flash season 4: the big bad won't be a speedster

20 March 2017 1:03 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Rob Leane Mar 20, 2017

In a change from the formula, The Flash will face a non-speedy big bad in season 4...

Here's some exciting news: The Flash's upcoming fourth season will throw out the rulebook, and pit Grant Gustin's Barry Allen against a big bad that isn't a speedster. 

After season 1's The Reverse-Flash (Tom Cavanagh/Matt Letscher), season 2's Zoom (Tony Todd/Teddy Sears) and season 3's Savitar (voiced by Tobin Bell), the established formula of speedy season-long villains murdering Barry's loved ones is starting to wear a little thin, making this news very welcome indeed.

The scoop came from PaleyFest via The Hollywood Reporter. At the event, producer Andrew Kreisberg said this: "Next season, we're not going to have a speedster as the main bad guy". Simples. 

"With Savitar, we know who he is, and we've been planning this for a while," Kreisberg added. "The first two seasons »

A History Of Violence: Cage and Connery bust into The Rock, the one good movie Michael Bay ever gave us

9 March 2017 10:00 PM, PST | | See recent The AV Club news »

With A History Of Violence, Tom Breihan picks the most important action movie of every year, starting with the genre’s birth and moving right up to whatever Vin Diesel’s doing this very minute.

The Rock (1996)

The fate of San Francisco is at stake. There’s a missile filled with tiny glass orbs pointed at it, and all those glass orbs are full of glowing neon-green nerve gas. Nicolas Cage, playing a twitchy and sweaty FBI chemical-weapons expert, is working frantically to disarm it. Tony Todd, the guy who played Candyman in Candyman, is an elite rogue marine, stalking him. Todd puts down his gun and pulls out a huge Rambo-esque knife; he wants to have some fun with this one. Cage, practically vomiting word-salad: “Let’s talk music. Do you like the Elton John song ‘Rocket Man’?” Todd, snarling but acting as if this is a perfectly ...

The Flash Star Tony Todd Was Going To Provide Dormammu’s Voice In Doctor Strange

30 January 2017 4:57 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Tony Todd is one of those actors you’ll have no doubt seen (or heard) somewhere over the years, but among his most prominent roles is a recent stint on The Flash. As the voice of Zoom, he made the comic book villain a truly terrifying adversary for the Scarlet Speedster for an entire season. It seems that Marvel took notice of his work on the DC TV show, too, as we’re learning that had things turned out differently, the actor could have lent his voice to the McU.

During a recent interview, Todd revealed that he was actually cast as Dormammu in Doctor Strange before Marvel and director Scott Derrickson decided to go with their original choice: Benedict Cumberbatch. It was last year that we first heard that the Sorcerer Supreme himself provided Dormammu’s voice and mannerisms, but Marvel were clearly hedging their bets.

Tony Todd Almost Voiced Dormammu in ‘Doctor Strange’

30 January 2017 12:00 PM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

Scott Derrickson’s Doctor Strange has one of the most inventive and clever final showdowns of any superhero movie in recent memory (and we’re going right into spoiler territory here). Rather than exchange blows or magic blasts with Dormammu, the demon who has been lurking behind the scenes for the bulk of the film, Benedict Cumberbatch‘s Dr. […]

Zoom Voice Actor From The Flash Was Originally Cast As Dormammu In Doctor Strange

30 January 2017 5:46 AM, PST | | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Tony Todd has played and voiced many villains over the years, with one of his most memorable performances coming during The Flash's second season. It was there that he took on the role of Zoom, but it has now been revealed that he came close to being Dormammu in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Interestingly, though, it wasn't as simple as him being replaced by Benedict Cumberbatch. In a recent interview with Comic Book Resources, he revealed that he was brought in by producers to record all of the villain's lines but only as an alternative after Cumberbatch had already done so! Unfortunately, despite all that work, Marvel Studios ultimately decided to go with their first choice.   "I have to tell you about one recent disappointment. I almost did Doctor Strange. I went in to do a session to play Dormammu. Benedict had already recorded it but the producers wanted »

Tamika’s Favorites of 2016

7 January 2017 10:54 AM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

2016 was chock-full of big blockbuster releases, many of which either failed to make a sizable profit or were incredibly divisive among audiences. But out of the ashes rose a beautiful flower: the indie film. Yes, independent movies had a wonderful year, some even breaking per-theater records and making their way onto my favorites of 2016 list, which also includes a Denis Villeneuve film, a comic book series, collectibles, an excellent comprehensive horror documentary, and more.

ArrivalDenis Villeneuve's Arrival is a beautiful take on language and how communication (or the lack of proper communication) can either doom or ensure our survival as human beings on this planet. The way Villeneuve tells a story is the perfect fit for a film like Arrival because its focus is small but the ideas are big, much like his previous works, EnemySicario, and Prisoners.

My hope is that the takeaway from Arrival »
