The Flash Showrunner Explains Why Tom Cavanagh’s Back As Reverse-Flash

Last year, The Flash‘s 100th episode delivered a major twist in season 5’s ongoing story. In case you missed it, it turns out that Nora West-Allen, Barry and Iris’ daughter from the future, is secretly in league with her dad’s nemesis, Eobard Thawne Aka Reverse-Flash. What’s more, the speedster villain is once again wearing the face of Harrison Wells, as played by Flash regular Tom Cavanagh.

This was a curious development, as Thawne’s own form is played by Matt Letscher. Previously, he’s only appeared with Wells’ face if he wants to go undercover, which is clearly not the case here as Nora already knows who he is. So, why did the team decide to go with the Tom Cavanagh version of the villain this season? Showrunner Todd Helbing was asked this by TV Line and explained that – somehow – this way makes more sense for the timeline.

Here’s How Michael Fassbender Could Look As Reverse-Flash

Ezra Miller’s Scarlet Speedster is due his own solo movie at some point on the big screen. And when The Flash film does eventually materialize, there’s obviously one villain that fans want to see face off against Barry Allen more than any other: his nemesis Eobard Thawne Aka Reverse-Flash. The character’s been played by Tom Cavanagh and Matt Letscher on TV, but who could portray the evil speedster on the big screen?

Well, fans have got creative over the past few years and created art imagining their personal picks for Reverse-Flash. Just a few that’ve been suggested as perfect candidates to date include Dexter‘s Michael C. Hall, X-Men: First ClassKevin Bacon and Legion’s Dan Stevens. Now, Reddit user Smileysyklops has put forward their choice in the form of another X-Men star, Michael Fassbender, and here’s a rendition of what the German-Irish actor could look like as Thawne.

New ‘The Flash’ Images Reveal the Team Gearing Up Post-“Elseworlds”

The Oliver and Barry switcheroo in "Elseworlds" was fun, but now it's time to get back to Flash business. In the midseason finale (and the show's 100th episode), Nora found out that Reverse Flash -- a weird Tom Cavanagh / Matt Letscher hybrid -- who she has ostensibly been helping, was actually the one who killed her grandmother. That info is going to be extremely important to the Team Flash dynamic moving forward, but first! There is a new meta team-up Weather Witch and Silver Ghost that the S.T.A.R.

[This story contains spoilers from the season one finale of Netflix's Narcos: Mexico.]

James Kuykendall had a very unique experience of watching Netflix's Narcos: Mexico. The retired DEA agent — who is portrayed by Matt Letscher on the newest season in the drug cartel series — was reliving the period in his life when a fellow agent, Kiki Camarena, was abducted, tortured and killed while on assignment with him in Mexico.

"The final episodes brought back some bad memories, especially when they actually picked him up," Kuykendall tells The Hollywood Reporter of Narcos: Mexico retelling Camarena's real-life ...

‘Narcos: Mexico’ Renewed for Season 2 at Netflix

  • Variety
Netflix has renewed “Narcos: Mexico” for a second season, Variety has learned.

Originally intended as a fourth season of “Narcos,” which focused on the rise of the cocaine business in Colombia under Pablo Escobar and his Medellín Cartel, “Narcos: Mexico” became a new series, shifting the focus to the beginnings of the Mexican drug trade and how it became what it is today.

Season 1 charts the rise of the Guadalajara Cartel in the 1980s as Félix Gallardo (Diego Luna) takes the helm, unifying traffickers in order to build an empire. When DEA agent Kiki Camarena (Michael Peña) moves his wife and young son from California to Guadalajara to take on a new post, he quickly learns that his assignment will be more challenging than he ever could have imagined. As Kiki garners intelligence on Félix and becomes more entangled in his mission, a tragic chain of events unfold, affecting the

Narcos: Mexico” charts the origins of the country’s drug war through the rise and fall of the Guadalajara Cartel under Miguel Angel Félix Gallardo.

The Flash Season 5 Episode 8 Review: What's Past is Prologue

The Flash episode 100 is a fine reminder of everything that has worked about this show since the first season.

This The Flash review contains spoilers.

The Flash Season 5 Episode 8

Well, here we are. 100 episodes of The Flash. Almost five years to the day since we first met Grant Gustin’s Barry Allen on Arrow in “The Scientist.” It’s been quite a race, and we’re nowhere near the finish line.

There were several ways “What’s Past is Prologue” could have gone. The most obvious would have been to really lay on the syrup and turn this into a self-congratulatory fan-centric party. To their credit, they didn’t do it. Instead, The Flash episode 100 exists firmly to advance the season’s story, and almost gets a little playful with the conventions of anniversary episodes. With all the time-hopping back to specific episodes, could you almost consider this a clip show?

‘Narcos: Mexico’ Review: Two Great Performances Anchor Bleak, Compelling Season

  • Indiewire
“Narcos: Mexico” wants you to think that it’s a whole new show. The newest season of the Netflix drama did go to the trouble of enlisting a new cast, relocating to a different area of the world, and promising first-time viewers that it’s not necessary to have seen the previous seasons. It’s even listed separately from “Narcos” on the Netflix site, with the new episodes listed as “Season 1.”

However, it is still the same series in every respect that matters, which makes it an easy recommend for previous fans. Showrunner Eric Newman has gotten very good at dramatizing the ever-expanding saga of the drug war for television, and the result here are 10 tense, detail-oriented episodes that don’t lack for action and drama.

While the scope might seem large, “Mexico” manages an admirable level of focus, as the show boils down largely to two men in the

Netflix Reveals First Look At Michael Pena & Diego Luna In ‘Narcos: Mexico’

  • Deadline
After spending three seasons in Colombia, Netflix’s drug trafficking drama is heading to Mexico. Narcos: Mexico will feature new characters including roles played by Michael Pena and Diego Luna.

Netflix unveiled the first look at Pena and Luna’s characters today. Luna (right) is set to play Miguel Ángel Félix Gallardo but he goes by only one name: Felix. He is the leader of the Guadalajara cartel, one of the biggest narcos in the history of Mexico and the founder of the modern Mexican drug trade.

What Makes Film and TV Supervillains Tick?

For more than a decade, superheroes have been a staple of cinema and television. Audiences are thrilled and inspired by an everyman donning spandex to overcome great difficulties and save the day. Nevertheless the majority of superhero films are plagued by one persistent stumbling block: a villain problem. In the McU only the charismatic Loki (Tom Hiddleston), merciless Hela (Cate Blanchett), resentful Vulture (Michael Keaton), and rage-filled Killmonger (Michael B Jordan) were more than thinly defined enigmas of evil. Whilst the DC film universe has opted to embrace CGI ‘Big Bads’ that appear out of nowhere during the third act. It’s fair to say that neither universe has succeeded in creating villains as complex or endearing as their heroic counterparts.

One of the main factors contributing to cinematic supervillains inability to make an impact is their lack of motivation. Guardians of the Galaxy’s antagonist Ronan (Lee Pace) hated

Arrowverse Villains Pitched A Legion Of Doom Sitcom To The CW

Though the Arrowverse has many awesome heroes, sometimes the villains manage to steal the spotlight. That was definitely the case back in Legends of Tomorrow season 2 in which the gang faced the Legion of Doom, made up of Damien Darhk (Neal McDonough), Malcolm Merlyn (John Barrowman), Eobard Thawne (Matt Letscher) and, later, Captain Cold (Wentworth Miller). The evil league had great comedic chemistry, too, as the bad guys tried to one up each other every chance they got.

It was so good, in fact, that the cast wanted to see them star in their own spinoff sitcom. As crazy as it sounds, that’s apparently an idea that the actors who brought the Legion to life pitched to the execs at The CW. Matt Letscher made the revelation while talking to Discussing Film, saying:

“[Working on Legends of Tomorrow] was a lot of fun; I had a great time with those guys.
