The CW‘s The Flash has added a villain. Executive Producer Greg Berlanti has announced that actor Wentworth Miller will be joining the series playing Leonard Snart aka Captain Cold. Miller is most known for his role on the series Prison Break. Captain Cold is a rather iconic villain and one of the Flash’s signature ones, especially as the leader of the band of villains known as The Rogues.
So far Miller is only set for one episode, but his character and his Rogue compatriots play too much of a role in the Flash’s world to not be in more. The pilot features his fellow Rogue Weather Wizard. Expect to see more of them to show up.
It’ll be interesting to see the take on the character as he’s played both villain and recently the role of hero. I’m expecting the classic villain.
In the world of The Flash, Ronnie is a maintenance worker at S.T.A.R. Labs and Dr. Caitlin Snow’s fiancé, and he plays an integral part in the particle accelerator accident that transforms Barry Allen into the Flash.
Firestorm is a bit different, in that it takes two individuals to “make” the hero, as Ronnie gets fused with his Firestorm partner in herodom, Jason Rusch. Will we see Rusch be popping up too?
Interestingly enough, Amell is the younger cousin of fellow DC Comics’ alum, actor Stephen Amell, star of Arrow.
The Flash airs on The CW this fall.
What if Ingmar Bergman Directed The Flash? That’s the question one YouTuber attempts to answer.

The rumor mill was churning today, with news being passed along like a bad game of telephone. A report today came out from Nikki Finke, former Deadline honcho, claims to list DC‘s upcoming movies through 2018.
May 2016 – Batman v Superman
July 2016 – Shazam
Xmas 2016 – Sandman
May 2017 – Justice League
July 2017 – Wonder Woman
Xmas 2017 – Flash and Green Lantern team-up
May 2018 – Man Of Steel 2
There had been talk of a Metal Men and Suicide Squad movie for sometime in 2016 but that project fell off the schedule.
Finke claims to late start to Batman V Superman is due to DC attempting to get this all settled down.
There’s numerous reasons I expect this all to be bullshit and click bait. One is, it ignores projects we’ve been told are being worked on, like the Justice League Dark film. The second big reason I don’t believe this is the history. It was about this time last year that it was rumored Cable, X-Force, Deadpool, Aquaman, the Flash, and Wonder Woman were all being announced as movies at SDCC 2013. We all know how that turned out.
While I’m sure DC is putting a plan together, I’ll believe this when I hear it directly from DC.
The weekend is almost here! What’s everyone got planned?

With numerous television shows based on comic books being announced for the 2014/2015 season, we’re starting to find out when the shows will be wining up on the schedule. I’ll say, there’s at least one shock for me, and that’s The CW not pairing up Arrow with The Flash.
Well, here’s what you’ll be watching this fall!
Gotham – 8pm – FOX – The series focusing on a young Jim Gordon and Gotham before the masks is one of my most anticipated shows of any debuting. Based on DC’s Batman. (NEW)
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. – 9pm – ABC – The series returns for a second season, staying on Tuesday nights, but moving forward an hour. We’ll see if the Marvel television series can build off its momentum.
The Flash – 8pm – The CW – Really, this wasn’t paired with Arrow!? Based on the DC Comics iconic character (NEW)
Arrow – 8pm – The CW – The series stays on Wednesdays at the 8pm slot for its third season. Based on the DC Comics character.
Constantine – 10pm – NBC – An interesting pairing of show and network, the series follows Grimm, a decent pairing of shows. Based on the comic series Hellblazer published by DC Comics imprint Vertigo. (NEW)
The Walking Dead – 9pm – AMC – I’m assuming The Walking Dead is remaining at this time slot and on this day.
It has also been announced that Agent Carter, a new show on ABC, will fill in the slot when Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has its fall finale and before the S.H.I.E.L.D. winter premiere. It’ll act as a bridge series, and connect with it and the greater Marvel cinematic universe. The CW has also announced that iZombie will be a midseason premiere as well, but we don’t know the day or time. That series is also based on a Vertigo series.
The Flash comes to television this fall on The CW.
The fastest man alive is coming this fall to The CW! Don’t blink or you’ll miss The Flash!
