“THE FLASH” INTERVIEWS: TEAM FLASH SPEEDS INTO SAN DIEGO TO DISCUSS SEASON 6, CRISIS CROSSOVER

The cast and creative team behind the CW’s The Flash came to San Diego Comic Con along with all of the other “Arrowverse” shows to discuss everything that happened during season five as well as preview the upcoming season six, which will include an epic 5-series crossover event based on “Crisis On Infinite Earths,” which will see the characters from The Flash mix it up with characters from Arrow, Supergirl, Legends of Tomorrow, and the new Batwoman, which premieres this fall. Before meeting fans for an autograph session and then again for a panel later in the day, the group sat down with the press for roundtable interviews to discuss the show.

First up, The Flash himself, Grant Gustin, spoke about the emotional impact of the season five finale, the newspaper headline tease and how it will play into season six, the breaking news that Brandon Routh will be returning as Superman in the “Crisis” crossover, and the logistical nightmares of filming the crossover events.

Danielle Panabaker talked about the Caitlin/Killer Frost relationship and what we might expect next season, and about her new role as director for episode six.

The “Crisis” Event is going to be huge and Tom Cavanagh talked about how complicated it is to make all of the different show schedules, crew schedules, and actor schedules work in a cohesive way.

Hartley Sawyer spoke about his character Ralph and about how Ralph being a little different adds to the Flash team, and where he ultimately sees Ralph ending up in the future.

Candice Patton (Iris West) talks about the loss of Nora in season five, and also the big “Crisis” crossover event.

Finally, Executive Producer Eric Wallace stopped by to tease season six and the “Crisis” crossover.

The Flash season six premiere airs on the CW Tuesday, October 8th.

Superman Double Header this Sunday and Monday with Fathom Events!

Warner Bros., DC and Fathom Events are having a Superman Movie Double Feature with in-theater screenings of ‘Reign of the Supermen’ and ‘The Death of Superman’ in 500 select movie theaters, starting TOMORROW, Sunday, January 13th at 12:55PM and Monday, January 14th at 8PM thought Fathom’s Digital Broadcast Network (DBN). Tickets for The Death of Superman/ Reign of the SupermenDouble Feature can be purchased at www.FathomEvents.com and participating theater box offices. You can then buy them later this year in a special collectible box set with extended footage. In the new clip we get to meet Steel (voiced by Cress Williams) as he saves Jimmy Olsen (voiced by Max Mittleman)!

 

Reign of the Supermen finds Earth’s citizens – and the Man of Steel’s heroic contemporaries – dealing with a world without Superman. But the aftermath of Superman’s death, and the subsequent disappearance of his body, leads to a new mystery – is Superman still alive? The question is further complicated when four new super-powered individuals – Steel, Cyborg Superman, Superboy and the Eradicator – emerge to proclaim themselves as the ultimate hero. In the end, only one will be able to proclaim himself the world’s true Superman.

The Death of Superman ultimately finds Superman in a fight to the finish when the Man of Steel becomes the only hero who can stand in the way of the monstrous creature Doomsday and his unstoppable rampage of destruction.As the inaugural film in the DC Universe Movies series, “Superman Doomsday” told an abridged version of “The Death Of Superman,” DC Comics’ landmark 1992-93 comic phenomenon. But with a runtime of 75 minutes, the film focused on a core, singular storyline. The new, animated “The Death of Superman,” the first of a two-part film experience that will conclude with “Reign of the Supermenin” in early 2019, restores many of the moments and characters that fans hold dear to their hearts.The all-star cast is led by Jerry O’Connell (Crossing Jordan, Stand By Me), Rebecca Romijn (X-Men, The Librarians) and Rainn Wilson (The Office) as the voices of Superman, Lois Lane and Lex Luthor, respectively. The potent trio is joined by the DC Universe Movies’ returning voices of the Justice League: Jason O’Mara (The Man in High Castle, Terra Nova) as Batman, Rosario Dawson (Sin City, Rent, Daredevil) as Wonder Woman, Shemar Moore (S.W.A.T., Criminal Minds) as Cyborg, Nathan Fillion (Castle, ABC’s upcoming The Rookie) as Green Lantern/Hal Jordan, Matt Lanter (Timeless) as Aquaman, and Christopher Gorham (Covert Affairs, Ugly Betty) as The Flash.
