The Flash. The CW has unveiled the synopsis for the February 5 episode of The Flash, titled “Goldfaced,” a potential reference to the DC Comics character Keith Kenyon. Also known as Goldface, Kenyon started off as an enemy of Green Lantern before eventually moving to Central City and becoming a foe of Barry Allen. The character possesses superhuman strength and invulnerability.

7 minutes ago Major spoilers ahead for the 100th episode of The Flash, called "What's Past Is Prologue." The Flash has officially hit its milestone 100th episode, and unlike sister series Arrow, the big episode didn't fall in the middle of a gigantic crossover event. Instead, the majority of the episode was focused on Team Flash finding a way to stop Cicada, which meant finding a way to get rid of his power-draining dagger. Barry and Nora went on a quest through the past to put together the pieces of a dampener for the dagger, which sent them back to the eras of Savitar, Zoom, and Reverse-Flash, and new clues having to do with none other than Nora West-Allen may point toward Reverse-Flash rather than Cicada as the Season 4 big bad. Here's why. Barry spent a great deal of his and Nora's time in the past trying to keep Nora from coming face to face with Reverse-Flash, but they had no choice but to visit him after a piece of their device was smashed and Thawne was the only person … [Read more...] about Did The Flash Just Reveal Reverse-Flash As The Real Big Bad Of Season 5?

6 minutes ago Arrow Season 7 has featured some big returns in surprising ways, and it looks like one former star just spilled the beans on another. John Barrowman -- who has played the recurring thorn in the side of Team Arrow, Malcolm Merlyn -- has now confirmed his character will make a return at some point in upcoming episodes. The news, while exciting for Arrow-verse fans, may have others wondering exactly how the superhero series will pull this one off. John Barrowman apparently didn't have the details, as SpoilerTV reported he dropped the big Arrow news in the midst of a Torchwood panel at the Supanova convention in Brisbane, Australia. The announcement, while exciting, surely has some fans confused -- as Malcolm Merlyn is currently believed to be dead following Season 5's Lian Yu incident. Merlyn allegedly laid down his life to save his daughter Thea Queen, and others, by detonating a landmine under his foot to cause a diversion. Of course, there's been a lot of … [Read more...] about John Barrowman Confirms Return In Arrow Season 7
3 minutes ago Warning: major spoilers ahead for the second episode of The Flash Season 5, called "Blocked." The Flash is going in a new direction with its latest supervillain, and fans had to wait until the second episode of Season 5 to get a good look at who he is and what he can do. Cicada was teased as an everyman kind of character who lost his family due to metahumans, and he was driven on a mission to exterminate all metas with his own meta abilities. Now that "Blocked" has shown what Cicada can do, it's already clear that Cicada is the supervillain The Flash needs. First and foremost, Cicada is not a speedster. Admittedly, we already knew heading into Season 5 that Cicada was not going to be a speedster, and we technically did go a full season with a non-speedster as the big bad, but The Flash has come to rely on speedsters a bit too much over the years. While the show is indeed called The Flash and centers on the Scarlet Speedster, the show also had to mix things up and … [Read more...] about Why Cicada Is The Supervillain The Flash Needs In Season 5
