The Flash 1.9 Blog: The Man In The Yellow Suit Review [Contains Spoilers]

23 January 2015 1:30 PM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Ralph Hemecker

Writers: Todd Helbing & Aaron Helbing

Cast: Grant Gustin, Candice Patton, Danielle Panabaker, Tom Cavanagh, Carlos Valdes, Rick Cosnett, Jesse L. Martin, John Wesley Shipp and Robbie Amell.

Synopsis: Barry finds himself face-to-face with his nemesis, the man in the yellow suit, a.k.a. Reverse Flash, who killed his mother.

Verdict:

After eight episodes of the superb superhero television show, we have now arrived at the mid-season finale. With the bar set higher than ever after Barry and his friends crossed paths with team Arrow in the preceding two-part story (check out my review), ‘The Man in The Yellow Suit’ has an awful lot to live up to. Thankfully, this delightfully festive story delivers yet another great hour of action, whilst also (finally) revealing the true identity of the man who murdered Barry’s mother.

The episode begins with a high-speed chase through central city between The Flash »

Melissa Benoist cast as TV’s Supergirl

23 January 2015 12:45 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

CBS and Warner Bros.' search is over – Supergirl will be played by Glee's Melissa Benoist

First Grant Gustin and now Melissa Benoist, it seems starring in Glee has become an popular route to getting your own superhero TV show. Benoist, according to The Hollywood Reporter, is now confirmed to play Supergirl. It’s time to chuck out your previous betting slips with Claire Holt on them, it would seem.

As well as Glee (which she joined in season 4 and even sang in a faux-Wonder Woman costume in one episode), Benoist is currently gracing UK screens as poorly-treated love interest Nicole in the excellent Whiplash.

Supergirl, if you don’t know already, goes by the name Kara Zor-el and is cousins with the Man Of Steel himself. There are lots of parallels; She was also born on Krypton, but managed to escape its destruction, found a foster family, and »

Daredevil showrunner answers fans questions on Twitter; defends Ben Affleck

11 January 2015 11:20 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Last week it was revealed that Netflix’ upcoming and highly anticipated series of Daredevil will land on April 10th. Apart from a few still images and some vague plot details we still don’t really know what to expect.

Now the showrunner for Daredevil, Steven S. DeKnight – who has previously worked on Angel, Smallville, Dollhouse and Spartacus: Gods of the Arena – has been answering fans questions via his official Twitter account and while most of what he said is short and a little ambiguous he does weigh in on certain aspects of the show including how much blood we’ll see, what the music score will be like, the possibility of an Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D crossover and if there’s a connection with The Avengers.

Oh and he also defends Ben Affleck’s version of Matt Murdoch saying: “Ben got a bad rap, in my opinion. »

CW’s ‘Flash': Ratings Gains, Kudos Buzz Drives Net’s New Momentum

10 January 2015 12:25 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The lightning strike that turned Barry Allen into the Flash has rubbed off on the CW.

The network that had endured a long slump comes to the Television Critics Assn. on Sunday with newfound sizzle and respect. The CW has ratings growth to tout — thank you “Flash” and “Arrow” — and traction in the prestige-tv arena with the plucky “Jane the Virgin.”

“It’s been a long process,” said CW prexy Mark Pedowitz. “We’ve had a strategy and we’ve stuck to that strategy.”

The signs of a turnaround are coming none too soon for the broadcast network that will mark its 10th anniversary next year. The CW faced the possibility of affiliate defections had the ratings slide continued and its programming remained narrowly tailored for a young female audience.

“There’s no question that affiliates felt we were too niche of a network,” Pedowitz acknowledged.

Ranked: How superhero stars fared after giving up the cape

10 January 2015 1:30 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Donning the cape and tights to play a big screen superhero was often seen as career suicide for actors. This idea is mined to brilliant effect in Alejandro González Iñárritu's Birdman, with a former comic book star looking to relaunch his career with an ambitious Broadway play.

Adding extra spice to Birdman is the casting of Michael Keaton, himself a former Batman whose post-tights career has been somewhat hit and miss. This film, however, is a stunning reminder of just how good an actor Keaton is and proof that careers don't end when on-screen superpowers fade away.

Digital Spy takes a look at 20 ex-superhero stars to see how they fared after leaving an iconic comic book role behind.

Viola Davis closing in on overall deal to play Amanda Waller in DC movie universe

9 January 2015 5:00 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

If Viola Davis is going to be the Samuel L. Jackson of the DC movie universe, I am perfectly fine with that. If you're not terribly familiar with Amanda Waller, the character she is in final negotiations to play in a number of different DC movies, let me recommend a recent DC animated film to you as a sort of crash course in both Waller and the Suicide Squad. "Batman: Assault on Arkham" will give you a pretty decent idea of what you can expect when David Ayer's "Suicide Squad" hits theaters in August of 2016. Cch Pounder plays the role in that film, and she also played that part on the "Justice League" animated series. On "Smallville," it was Pam Grier who played the part. Waller also appeared in a very brief couple of scenes in the live-action "Green Lantern," where Angela Bassett played the part. I love Viola Davis, »

Speaking to Nerd Report, Davis revealed that she has not yet started to research the DC Comics source material.

"I have not started reading them yet. I've read up about her but I'm working out my schedule for Suicide Squad," she said.

The actress continued: "I'm fascinated by her. I'm fascinated by her in this world of superhero-ness because she is not a woman that you would expect. I think that she is a massive contradiction.

"She's this big, powerful black woman, hard, ready to pick up a gun and shoot anyone at will. »
