Video – The Flash Vs. Black Lightning

Flickering Myth

After watching this video, you’ll be asking yourself why the CW Flash can’t step up his game a little…

Is the Flash faster than Lightning? We’ll soon find out as the Scarlet Speedster takes on none other than Black Lightning in this week’s versus clip! They both fight for the side of justice and have shows on The CW, but that’s where the similarities end. Can Barry Allen channel the Speed Force and run circles around Jefferson Pierce? Or will Black Lightning prove that he can strike twice… or however many times it takes to emerge victorious? Let us know in the comments!

The Flash Reborn With New Season 4 Costume, Elongated Man Cast

Flickering Myth

Glad to see they’re not adding another speedster to the lineup!

Via Flickering Myth: The Flash will be reborn this October when Grant Gustin’s Barry Allen emerges from the Speed Force for the fourth season of The CW’s hit DC superhero show, and Gustin has been chatting to EW about this ‘rebirth’ and how his character has been affected between seasons.

“The way I see it is, time is non-linear and everything is happening at once in the Speed Force. In someways he’s had an awakening and he’s had a rebirth. Our first episode is called ‘Reborn,’ and it is a rebirth for Barry, but he’s kind of scrambled, too, because he’s experienced so much so quick over the course of six months, even though for him it was an eternity. He’s not Barry when we see him for the first time.”

The Flash Comic #18: Reverse-Flash Haunts Kid Flash

“Kid Flash is one of the fastest heroes alive… so what’s keeping him from moving forward? In this DC All Access comics clip, we talk to Flash writer Joshua Williamson about “Sins of the Father,” the dramatic new storyline that kicks off today. Confronted with the truth that his father is a super-villain, Wally West seeks him out behind the bars of Belle Reve. But what will the Reverse-Flash’s time on the Suicide Squad mean to his son looking for answers? And how will these events set up the upcoming Batman crossover, “The Button”?” Video at the link below.

Trailer – The Flash Goes To Gorilla City / DC News

“You know you’re in for a week when it starts with a visit from a mischievous intergalactic imp. Yes, Mister Mxyzptlk is dropping into Supergirl, and in this new #DCTV clip, we look at the results. (Um…romance?) Plus, The Flash is headed to Gorilla City—that’s right, GORILLA CITY—and the Legends pay a visit to Camelot. Maybe they should tell Arthur to keep an eye on Lancelot…” Video at the link below.

What To Expect From Gorilla Grodd In Upcoming Flash

“After taking a week off, The Flash comes back this Tuesday with an all-new episode which kicks off a two-part event centered around the return of his furry nemesis Gorilla Grodd. In “Attack on Gorilla City,” Team Flash will travel to Earth-2 to find Jesse’s father, Harrison Wells. He was taken by Grodd in order to bait Team Flash into coming to Gorilla City and helping him overthrow its leader, Solovar.

It should be an awesome event! To make sure everyone tunes in, The CW has now released a new batch of photos from “Attack on Gorilla City,” including the first two images of Solovar. As you can see in our gallery below, as well as in the banner image, Solovar — who is being voiced by Keith David (The Thing, Community) — is being depicted as a giant, white gorilla. That’s a noticeable departure from his comic book counterpart, who looks like a regular gorilla but wears a fancy red cape.” has a photo of Solovar as well as the video for the upcoming two part series here


New Costume For The Flash?

So Grant Gustin more or less tweeted his desire for a new suit and lo and behold! A new suit arrives shortly after. “… Gustin has taken to his Twitter account to let his views be known about his costume on the series – namely, that he’s due for an upgrade in superhero attire.

Gustin posted the following message to Twitter, expressing his desire for Barry to get a new outfit as The Flash. It didn’t take long for artist BossLogic to mock up what a future version of the Scarlet Speedster’s costume could look like, bringing a deeper red to the outfit and messaging it directly to Gustin.”

We don’t think the suit change is that big of a deal and it’s kind of hard to see much of a difference unless you have both suits in front of you. Nevertheless, a pic of the new suit and more on the article can be found here. Do you like the new suit? Was it necessary?

The Flash Movie Has Barry Fighting An Enemy Mob

flashPretty good idea – since the Flash movie might be a long shot – even with the popularity of the TV show. May as well pack all the enemies you can into the first film.

The Flash will be coming to the big screen this 2017 as part of the Justice League. The speedy superhero will then have his solo movie afterwards wherein he will face a group strong villains. Ezra Miller will be playing as Barry Allen akaThe Flash in the upcoming film. He will be facing The Rogues who are a team of villains including Captain Cold, Pied Piper, Mirror Master, the Trickster, Heat Wave, Weather Wizard, the Top and Captain Boomerang. Together they will stop the superhero and put innocent people in danger.  However, only a few of them might be featured in the movie and not the entire team.”

flashHopefully this won’t be as dark as Flashpoint – which was great, but absolutely brutal for a DC cartoon. Remember, you can play a great ‘Flash’ drinking game where you take a drink every time someone asks “Are you OK?” Take two drinks every time someone leaves any dinner party in a huff. New season arrives Tuesday, October 4 on the CW. Video below – enjoy!

Rick Famuyiwa Directing New Flash Film

flashFlash has had some production problems. Hopefully this doesn’t turn into a merry-go-round of directors getting on and off. Rick Famuyiwa was previously noted for the film Dope. “Ezra Miller (We Need to Talk About KevinThe Perks of Being a Wallflower) will play Barry Allen, aka The Flash, following his recent cameo appearance in this year’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

Willem Dafoe is also attached in a mystery role while the film is expected to also feature appearances by Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Jeremy Irons as Alfred Pennyworth and Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor.
