DC Comics TV show Comic-Con trailers

As you’re probably all aware, Comic-Con was last week, and we’re still poring over some of the details that went unnoticed while covering panel after panel at the convention. For some fans, who didn’t get into Hall H for some of the bigger movie presentations from Marvel Studios and Warner Bros. Pictures, the next best thing was getting into Ballroom 20 for a sneak peek at what’s coming on the next season of their favorite DC Comics television shows, and those fans didn’t go home disappointed.

This past weekend, Warner Bros. Television debuted new trailers for almost all of their DC Comics TV series. Gotham, Arrow, The Flash and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow all received new trailers teasing their new season coming this fall. Sadly, Supergirl didn’t have any footage to show, but they teased the second season with a panel at Comic-Con that you can watch online. So without further adieu, see what’s coming with this batch of DC Comics TV show Comic-Con trailers. Read More »

The Flash Flashpoint storyline

The Flash returned to Comic-Con for the third time in anticipation of its third season on The CW. We spoke with producers Todd and Aaron Helbing in a roundtable before their panel. The season premiere is called “Flashpoint,” based on the classic comic book alternate universe story. Like other classic comic book titles, like “Worlds Finest” on Supergirl and “The Brave and the Bold” on Arrow, The Flash will put a new twist on “Flashpoint.”

“It’s like any of those iconic moments in Flash,” Todd said. “You want to make sure you do right. But it’s also, the way we approach all these stories are we know what happened in the comics but we take that event and we sort of run it through the Flash television show filter so we can tell the same story with our spin. It was challenging but it wasn’t impossible.”  Read More »

Kiersey Clemons in Extant

UPDATE #2: Variety confirms Kiersey Clemons has closed a deal to play female lead Iris West in Rick Famuyiwa’s The Flash. Our original story from July 8, 2016 follows.

When Warner Bros. needed a new director for The Flash, it looked to Dope and picked up filmmaker Rick Famuyiwa. And now that Warner Bros. is starting to cast The Flash, it’s borrowing from Dope again. Kiersey Clemons, who worked with Famuyiwa on that Sundance charmer, has reportedly emerged as the frontrunner to play the female lead in The Flash, opposite Ezra Miller as Barry Allen.

UPDATE #1: The Hollywood Reporter’s Borys Kit adds that Rita Ora (Fifty Shades of Grey) and Lucy Boynton (Sing Street) are also in the running. More below. Read More »
