Tonight: “The Flash” On The CW Network (10/10/2017)

This is an exciting week if you are a fan of The CW’s take on all of the DC Comics Superheroes because all of the shows are making their latest season premieres. Yesterday we had “Supergirl” and tonight it’s “The Flash” turn as Season 4 begins on the network. I’ve secured the poster for the season and have added some reminder of the previous happenings along with the cast. Check it out below.

Season 3 Recap: By changing his past, Barry alters the timeline, resulting in “Flashpoint”. Though he is somewhat able to restore the timeline, this creates new threats, including Savitar. After Harry and Jesse return to Earth-2, another Wells doppelgänger is recruited: the novelist “H.R.” Wells. Both Wally and Caitlin Snow begin to manifest metahuman abilities; Wally suits up as the speedster Kid Flash, while Caitlin is forced to suppress her ice-powers to prevent becoming Killer Frost. When Barry accidentally travels to the future and sees Iris killed by Savitar, he is desperate to change the future to prevent that from happening. After saving Iris and defeating Savitar, Barry takes his place in the Speed Force. (thanks Wiki)

Some Cast/Characters:
Grant Gustin as Barry Allen/Flash
Candice Patton as Iris West
Danielle Panabaker as Dr. Caitlin Snow/Killer Frost
Carlos Valdes as Cisco Ramon/Vibe
Tom Cavanagh as Harrison Wells
Jesse L. Martin as Joe West
Keiynan Lonsdale as Wally West/Kid Flash

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I’m still a part of “Team Flash” when it comes to The CW Network of shows and think that I like this one a whole lot more than that of “Arrow”. I do feel that some of the storyline’s in the overall sense are too drawn out and would like to see the show approach a more “Agents Of SHIELD” methodology with various arcs that all tie together. Otherwise I really like it and hope we get a few surprises and some more heroes that can be utilized across the DC Comics Television Universe. Can we start a thing called the “DCTU”? I’d like to think so. Are you still watching “The Flash” or have you even given it a chance yet? It’s on Netflix if you haven’t so if you program the new season on DVR, you can begin to binge watch the older episodes and then pick up with the recordings. Give it a shot, I think you will enjoy it and I say this as a seasoned superhero fan. Let me know down in the comments section below.

I’ve also listed most of the cast who will be appearing on the “Supergirl”, “The Flash”, “Arrow” and “Legends Of Tomorrow” shows so dig in.

The Premise: Barry Allen and Iris West’s friends come to Central City for their wedding, only for the event to be disrupted by Nazi invaders from the parallel world Earth-X, including fascist doppelgängers of Barry’s allies Oliver Queen and Kara Danvers and enemy Eobard Thawne, who come to Earth-1 with a deadly agenda. In addition, the superheroes from Earth-X, including Citizen Cold (a doppelgänger of Leonard Snart) and The Ray, also arrive to help Barry and his friends to stop them. (thanks Wiki)

The Cast/Characters:
Melissa Benoist as Kara Zor-El/Kara Danvers/Supergirl/Kara-X/Overgirl
Chyler Leigh as Alex Danvers

Wentworth Miller as Leo-X/Citizen Cold
Prometheus-X, the Earth-X version of Prometheus, will appear in the episodes

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Last year’s “Invasion” story line was pretty good but I will have to say that I am super interested in this one since I know that Earth-X is the world in the Multiverse for the Freedom Fighters who I always enjoyed in the comics. Despite their very limited run of a series. I’ll cross my fingers that we get Uncle Sam somewhere in this or Human Bomb at least. Good characters that would make for interesting crossovers on this and future episodes. I still watch all four of the shows and am curious to see how Black Lightning will do when it makes its premiere. What about you readers? Are you enjoying these programs and does this new crossover event pique your interest? Let me know down below.

The CW Seed Presents: “Freedom Fighters: The Ray” SDCC Trailer

I didn’t rush to share this one with the readership because the only release information that was unveiled was “the Fall” so I felt I could address other posts and get around to this when I could. So here we are with another CW Seed web episode offering and this one is called “Freedom Fighters: The Ray”. Much like the previous superhero webisodes around “Vixen”, “FFTR” takes place as a part of the Arrowverse in some sense. Check out the trailer below and then enjoy some of the revealed voice casting.

The Premise: Raymond “Ray” Terrill is a reporter who discovers a genetic light bomb in his investigation of a secret government project attempting to harness the power of light and weaponize it. The bomb goes off, and instead of killing him, gives him light-based powers, and he is recruited to join the Freedom Fighters.

Harrison Wells’ parallel universe counterpart, and his daughter Jesse (Violett Beane), work to help Barry and his friends stop Zoom. Joe and his daughter, Iris (Candice Patton), struggle with their shared painful past related to their family, especially after the arrival of Iris’s brother Wally West (Keiynan Lonsdale), whom Francine West (Vanessa A. Williams) gave birth to shortly after abandoning her family. After Zoom kills Barry’s father, the season concludes with Barry travelling back in time to save his mother’s life from the Reverse-Flash.
