Unsurprisingly, these successful shows have inspired their own spin-off series in various forms, the latest being the Crossover Crisis trilogy by Barry Lyga. I was given...
Movies are expensive and flicks like The Flash will cost a whole lot of money to make so they're going to need to make the money up somehow to cover all the costs it'll occur, right? How can they do that? They'll just have to throw in some product placement to encourage movie-goers to go out and buy some stuff.
I've been thinking about The Flash for a while now and I just can't help think that there are at least two missed tricks that the DC Movie Universe team has missed out on. So I thought I'd walk you through my two ideas for The Flash as a movie character.

So it begins guys, the New 52 is gone. A new logo has been installed and thus we begin the era of DC Rebirth. This week, I picked up Detective Comics and The Flash Rebirth. We're they any good? Let's break it all down and try to find out.
The answers we've been waiting for as to the truth behind Zoom's identity, Jay Garrick and Hunter Zolomon, finally arrive this week as The Flash takes the fight directly to him. It uhh, kind of ended up being a mistake on their part.
Ok, hot damn. The instant the premise of this episode was announced, I figured "There's just no way. They're gonna muck it up. It can't actually be that awesome." and yet here I am. Knowing that the only way to gain the speed needed to defeat Zoom is to master the science of the Speed Force, The Flash sets out to learn the secrets of his old mentor: Eobard Thawne, the Reverse Flash.
Coming back from hiatus in a big way, The Flash dealt with the ramifications of learning Zoom's true identity while also fighting to stop a new speedster. What could have just been another "Rogue of the week" installment actually brought with it some interesting developments for the STAR Labs crew.
Despite negative reviews [you can check out n3's official review here], Batman v Superman is continuing to break records and rake in the cash, pushing past the $500 million dollar mark today, after being out for roughly a week.
Alright let's get the big one out of the way real quick: I was kind of right on the whole "Jay is Zoom" thing but we're still not quite sure in what way. The masked man's frightened reaction to seeing Jay's body fall on the ground implies that perhaps the Jay we knew wasn't necessarily a bad man, but the Jay we see in the gimp suit is. My current running theory is that The Flash's current speedster antagonist is either A) Jay from the future, who was driven mad by his addiction to Velocity 9 and thus can't kill his past self lest he completely disappear, or B) Hunter Zolomon from Earth-1. That one's actually rather straightforward, and makes me inclined to lean away from that, though it does seem that Zolomon is connected to whatever the true twist is with Zoom.
In what seems to be a recurring trend for the Arrowverse, the latter half of the two-parter surpasses the former by a hefty margin. With The Flash locked up in Zoom's lair with the mysterious masked man and Jesse, it's up to Harry and Cisco to assemble a team to overcome the odds and get back to their home.
Ever since we got the earliest of glimpses into this other world at the start of the season, we all started asking: so when are we going in? The Flash dives deep into doppelganger madness by bringing a majority of the cast into a wholly new setting, in what is clearly meant to be a two-parter episode. There's a whole lot going on here, but how well does it get across from the script to the screen?
Something that The Flash has done a good job of, from the beginning, is delivering the payoff sooner rather than later. After the midseason finale and Harry making a deal to steal The Flash's speed in exchange for his daughter's life, it became unclear just how long we would have to wait for everything to come out in the open. Even here, watching Harry sit there as they discussed the loss in Speed Force hinted that he was starting to regret his decisions and lead towards his coming clean, and bam. Right then and there he says it all and puts his hands behind his head.
Titling an episode "The Reverse-Flash Returns" after literally wiping the character from all existence at the end of last season seems like it would be just another gimmicky excuse to shoe-horn in an old villain. Like Deathstroke's appearance in Season 3 of Arrow, but instead it became a post-humous origin story for an amazing villain that summarily tells the tale of the never-ending war between The Flash and his Reverse. Well, never-ending in the original timeline at least.
This week's episode of The CW's The Flash featured the highly anticipated return of season one's primary antagonist, Eobard Thawne A.K.A. Reverse-Flash! Of course, the episode featured plenty of other exciting moments too - come check out n3's top 5 moments from "The Reverse-Flash Returns"!
