It was interesting to find The CW Network making us wait so long for all of the superhero shows but now that there are something like six of them, it makes sense to parse them out to not overwhelm the viewers. If you’ve not been paying attention, we’ve already touched upon the premieres of “Supergirl”, “Arrow”, “Black Lightning” and “The Flash” in posts of their own and ALL of these shows exist in the same universe of characters with the only exception being Black Lightning. Let’s take a glance at the cool season poster, the last season recap and some old and new casting.
Season 3 Recap: In season three, the team discover that they created anachronisms throughout time, and Rip has formed the Time Bureau to help fix them. Rip tells the team of the demon Mallus, whose follower Nora Darhk has resurrected her father Damien and Amaya’s granddaughter Kuasa, also recruiting Gorilla Grodd so that they can release Mallus from his prison by perverting history. The team loses both members of Firestorm, but is joined by Zari Tomaz, a hacktivist from 2042 whose air-controlling amulet is connected to Amaya’s totem, and Wally West / Kid Flash, a speedster formerly under the tutelage of the Flash.

The 2018 Comic Con International: San Diego (or SDCC) will end today, Sunday the 22nd. We’ve been loading up the assorted sneak peeks and trailers that have been revealed across the conventions four days. If you’ve missed any of them, just click HERE for the rundown of these narratives. Yesterday, The CW Network unveiled its trailers for the DC Universe of shows and I’ve loaded them in to run across the day. Let’s continue with “The Flash”, the show that began as an offshoot of “Arrow” and now has had a pretty solid “RUN” itself (terrible pun I know).
Season 4 Recap: In the months since Barry left, Wally and Cisco have barely been able to protect Central City. When a new foe defeats them easily, requesting a battle against the Flash, the team decides to bring Barry back. While they manage to do so, Barry’s return releases dark matter, turning a dozen people on a city bus into metahumans. One of these metahumans is private detective Ralph Dibny, who joins the Flash’s team. While Barry and Iris prepare for their wedding, the team realize that Barry’s arrival and the creation of the bus metahumans were orchestrated by the Thinker.

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)

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.
As previously discussed, the Comic Con International: San Diego or “SDCC” to most, was just held this past weekend and as expected offered up a wealth of trailers for films and television shows that we fill up the DVR with. Since I blasted so many trailers at our readers on Sunday I’ve decided that with all clips related to The CW Television Network series, that I would offer them up one per day alongside our regularly posting music content. This lets us mix it up nice and evenly. Here is the Official Trailer for “The Flash” Season Four.
You’ve waited patiently my readers and now its time to once again catch up with the fastest man alive, the Scarlet Speedster known at The Flash as the third season of his awesome show begins tonight. Check out some details below and I will return with some thoughts.
Six months after the events of the first season, after a singularity event, the Flash is recognized as Central City’s hero. However, the event brings an evil from a parallel universe to Central City in the form of the speedster Zoom (Teddy Sears; voiced by Tony Todd; Ryan Handley, in costume) who seeks to eliminate everyone connected to the Speed Force throughout the multiverse. 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.
