iZombie season 3 is almost here, and who better than star Rose McIver to preview what’s coming for Liv Moore and her crime-fighting friends?
We had the chance to ask McIver about Liv’s new challenges — including the possible threat posed by the militant zombies of Fillmore-Graves — while at the 2016 San Diego Comic-Con last summer. Check out the video below to see for yourself what’s in store.
iZombie season 3 premieres Tuesday, April 4 at 9pm.
There’s something new to be thankful for this Thanksgiving — The CW has released the trailer for its upcoming four-way crossover event: “Heroes vs. Aliens.”
Characters from Arrow, Supergirl, The Flash, and Legends of Tomorrow will all work together to fight against an alien invasion in the four episodes making up the crossover. Considering that the plot seems to involve aliens — ominously called Dominators — invading Earth and causing all sorts of trouble, it may take every character in the CW’s comic-book universe to save the day.
What’s the plot of this series of episodes? Honestly, I’m not entirely sure. But who cares when all sorts of fun characters get to interact — Supergirl‘s Kara and Legends‘ Heatwave are a highlight in the trailer.
The CW crossover event starts Monday, November 28 with that week’s episode of Supergirl and continues on over the next few days.
The final season of Teen Wolf is nearly upon us, so it’s only fitting that the creepy show released the first 10 minutes on Saturday at the New York Comic-Con.
What’s in the video? Well, there’s a date horribly ruined by paranormal phenomena (and by a failure to have proper repair equipment), a brave attempt to stop a helium theft, and a brief glimpse at what could be Teen Wolf‘s newest Big Bad — a creepy, gun-wielding fellow on a black horse.
It’s a bit nuts. But that’s what you should expect in a Teen Wolf season 6 video like this. Watch for yourself below.
Arrow season 5 promises to be a big one for Oliver Queen and company. After all, at the end of the previous season, most of the team abandoned their vigilante mission for… well basically, anything else. It’s like they don’t want to be in life-and-death situations all the time!
Fortunately, this is Arrow and the whole gang is likely to be back, fighting for justice and their very lives, within the near future.
Who better than to tease when this might occur than the cast of Arrow themselves? Watch these Arrow season 5 video interviews shot at the 2016 San Diego Comic-Con in July.

The Flash season 3 is about to premiere, so what better time to hear from the show’s stars about what fans can expect from the new episodes? I had a chance to talk to most of the cast (unfortunately, I wasn’t able to grab Candice Patton — sorry WestAllen fans!) at the 2016 San Diego Comic-Con back in July.
Watch the videos below to see what Grant Gustin, Jesse L. Martin, Carlos Valdes, Danielle Panabaker, Keiynan Lonsdale, and two of the show’s executive producers had to say about The Flash in season 3.
First up, here’s Grant Gustin being all charming and mostly vague about what’s coming for Barry Allen. Flashpoint — the alternate timeline Barry created at the end of season 2 and the title of the premiere episode — figures prominently in his answers.
Next is Carlos Valdes, who has plenty to say about Cisco Ramon. This could be a big year for Cisco, especially since his Flashpoint doppelganger is more than a little different from the nerd we know and love.
Danielle Panabaker’s Caitlin Snow gets her changes as well in the Flashpoint universe (Spoiler alert: She utters a great line in the premiere, “Have I been kidnapped?”). The actress hinted at what might be coming in her interview.
Things will definitely be different for Joe West in season 3. What does Jesse L. Martin have to say about that? See for yourself!
The last of the actors we’ve got here (stay tuned for Tom Cavanagh and new cast member Tom Felton next week) is Kid Flash himself, Keiynan Lonsdale. Now a regular, the actor has plenty to say about what antics Wally West might get up to in the new season.
Finally, two of The Flash‘s executive producers give away more than a few Flash season 3 spoilers in their interview.
The Flash season 3 premieres Tuesday, October 4 at 8pm on The CW.
It’s been a long summer, but Arrow season 5 is about to premiere with new episodes. What does that mean? Well, for the premiere episode, “Legacy,” it means a whole lot of changes for Oliver Queen and company. Remember — most of the team dropped the whole vigilante gig after the season 4 finale.
Oliver and Felicity Smoak are still in the game, a fact complicated somewhat by their breakup and by Oliver’s new job as mayor of Star City. And they’ve got Curtis Holt hanging around the lair, but everyone else is keeping their distance.
Will the team come back? Will Oliver be forced to hire some new blood? Arrow will most likely spend much of the coming season answering these questions. In the meantime, however, here are a few Arrow season 5 spoilers from the premiere.
1. Thea hasn’t gone far.
While Thea Queen may have hung up her Speedy hood at the end of last season, Oliver’s baby sister is sticking close to family — she clearly has a major role in the mayoral office, often covering for her absent brother.
2. The more things change, the more crime stays the same…
Sure, Damien Darhk is as dead as his creepy, subterranean utopia, but other bad guys are happy to pick up the slack. We meet one of them — Tobias Church (Chad L. Coleman) — in “Legacy,” and he’s all kinds of evil-awesome. Another baddie, Prometheus, seems to be in the mix as well. Who he (?) is and what he wants, we’ll be finding out over the next few episodes.
3. Killing is back on the menu.
You know how Oliver hasn’t been doing much in the way of killing over the past couple of years? Yeah, that’s over with. There’s some violence both in flashbacks and in the present-day. Not everyone is OK with this turn of events.
4. Oliver and Felicity aren’t exactly on the same page, relationship-wise.
Things are impressively friendly between these former significant others — think season 1/2 friendliness with occasional reminders of the attraction between them. Interestingly, one of these two may be reading more into this attraction than the other.
5. Always a triangle…
As anyone who has watched the Arrow season 5 trailer knows, Felicity has a new man in her life. The character is more than just a pretty face and appears elsewhere in the episode. Who is he and how does he figure into the new season? The episode doesn’t give a lot of answers. The character is clearly related to law enforcement.
Arrow season 5 premieres Wednesday, October 5 at 8pm on The CW.
The Flash season 3 trailer makes it clear that the superhero show isn’t playing around when it comes to its Flashpoint-themed premiere.
Thanks to Barry running back in time to save his mother — and later his father — from certain doom at the hands of speedsters, everything in The Flash’s life has changed. Iris and Joe are near-strangers to Barry. Cisco now owns what used to be STAR Labs and is kind of a jerk. Eobard Thawne is alive (and imprisoned?) and angry.
And there is more than one clue in the video — which premiered during the 2016 San Diego Comic-Con — indicating that Barry’s “perfect” world is unraveling around him. It probably doesn’t much help that Wally West is a speedster himself these days.
The Flash season 3 premieres Tuesday, October 4 on The CW.
The Arrow season 5 trailer was released at the 2016 San Diego Comic-Con on Saturday. What’s in it? Well, there is a whole bunch of Green Arrow fighting, along with some clues that things will be changing the new season. For one thing, Oliver Queen seems ready to take on some apprentice vigilantes in his ongoing quest to save Star City.
In addition to Echo Kellum’s Curtis Holt, the wannabe vigilantes include Evelyn Sharp (Madison McLaughlin) and Wild Dog (Rick Gonzales). There’s no word on which of these trainees will remain on the team.
The new trailer does make it clear that supposedly departed team members Thea Queen and John Diggle won’t be gone for long. Meanwhile, Oliver and Felicity are still working together to save the city — even while Oliver takes the office of Mayor.
Arrow season 5 will premiere on Wednesday, October 5 on The CW.
Thanks to star Stephen Amell, fans got their first look at Arrow season 5 on Tuesday. And… wow. It’s a rather abs-tacular view.
That’s what happens, after all, when the Arrow star tweets a photo of his character, Oliver Queen, dripping in sweat and naked as far as the camera angle can see. There’s also an unusual amount of hair — a style more in keeping with flashback Oliver than present-day Oliver — so this may be a scene from the Green Arrow’s heretofore mysterious time in Russia.
Whatever the case, Oliver is very muscular and very unclothed. So enjoy!
Arrow returns to The CW on Wednesday, October 5 at 8pm with an episode (directed by longtime fight coordinator James Bamford) called “Legacy.” Keep checking this space for more Arrow season 5 spoilers as we get closer to the premiere!
We have only one more episode of The Flash season 2 left to the season, so it seems a good time to round up spoilers, break out some speculation, and try to anticipate not only where this show is headed for the next episode but where it will leave all of its fans over the interminable summer hiatus.
Here come the Flash spoilers!
What We Know – Villains Edition
In an era where everything gets spoiled practically the second it is created, The Flash has done a reasonably good job of keeping this one under wraps. I’d even go so far as to say they’ve done perhaps too good of a job, because the promo showing Zoom racing against Flash was far from heart-pounding. (A race to save the world? Really? I mean, I know he’s the fastest second-fastest one of the fastest men alive, but a foot race doesn’t make for must-see-TV action.)
Of course, whether as a race or more, there will be a showdown between Barry and Zoom. And while I expect that the door will be left open for Zoom to return in some capacity, it may well be that Teddy Sears’s stint on the show is done. He has another series, and there doesn’t seem to be much further they can go with Hunter Zolomon’s character. That said, Tony Todd, the voice of Zoom, has confirmed on Twitter that he will return.
This leaves an interesting question: Will Zoom be, like Batman, a mantle that can be passed from one person to another? Or is Zoom an entity that possesses people but can travel from person to person? (I still can’t forget Jay’s line about the darkness – or the way his eyes changed when he said it.)
Of course, that’s not the only thing we know. It has been spoiled that someone will betray the team, leaving Barry “shocked.” There are really only a few possible options, since neither Cisco, Joe, nor Iris would make any sense. Betrayals by any of the above not even remotely been foreshadowed. As relative newcomers to the series with stories that need to be explored before any betrayal arc would have much impact, Jesse and Wally similarly make no sense. After the betrayal of Harribard in Season 1, having Harry betray the team would be extremely redundant.
That really leaves Caitlin as the most likely to betray the team – particularly when one considers her recent arc.
Not only did she spend a good deal of time with Zoom, but the way she left was significant. He offered her a choice – to stay or leave and be in the same danger as her friends. The implication of her appearance in the next episode would seem that she chose to leave and take the chance. However, I noticed she didn’t tell the team about Zoom’s threat. Also, when Zoom came to the house to kidnap Henry, he didn’t say anything to the woman he had been holding hostage and threatening not long before. Is it possible she made a deal with Zoom in exchange for her freedom and safety? Or is it possible she does so next episode?
Given that they’ve established Jesse as her replacement in the lab without losing stride, I think there’s a good chance that Caitlin will become Killer Frost next season. If so, something needs to send her down that path and a betrayal would certainly be a first step.
What We Know – Heroes Edition
Of course, there’s the obvious: We will find out the identity of the Man in the Iron Mask. After all the speculation and theorizing, I think Earth 2 Henry is the most likely candidate. Of course, this doesn’t entirely make sense, but it wouldn’t be the first major plot hole in the Earth 2 Zoom story. (If Zoom decided to steal Barry’s speed once the breach opened, why had he kidnapped Jesse months before? This I expect will never be explained.)
At any rate, after Henry’s comment that Garrick is his mother’s maiden name, I think it is a near-certainty that the reveal will be not just that he’s under the mask but that he’s the real Jay Garrick.
While I’m sure he’ll be instrumental in the finale, he won’t be the only one to offer some key assistance. Carlos Valdez has spoiled that Vibe will be key in defeating Zoom. Whether this means that he will be the one to discover Zoom’s true plan or whether he’ll get a handle on the powers he momentarily displayed last week (at least enough to land a crucial blow) is for question. My bet would be the former, since they could get some more mileage up to building up the latter in developing his powers even further next season.
The finale won’t all be hero v. villain drama, of course. As leaked today in photos, Iris West and Barry Allen will share their (second) first kiss. Some fans are worried that this will be undone, given Grant Gustin’s cryptic comments at the CW Upfronts that the finale will put the time stream at risk. However, I think it highly unlikely that the show would undo something they’ve built up over the course of several episodes.
That said, if they want to stick to the same time period as Arrow, there will be a time jump between Seasons 2 and 3. I think it’s probable something will delay the Westallen relationship over the hiatus, so that the viewers don’t miss out on all those early-relationship moments. Whatever it is, I’m confident that they will not erase the kiss as they did in the first season. Everything indicates they’re building up Westallen to (finally) seriously move forward with that relationship next season.
Given Cisco’s vibe that Earth 2 is in danger, my current theory is that the finale will end with Barry trapped in Earth 2, having crossed over to help and closed the breach behind him to prevent any danger to that world from carrying over into his own. If Cisco and Barry are trapped together, this might explain why it would take several months for the two to find a way to open the breach – after all, Cisco works on a different frequency on Earth 2, and Harry wouldn’t be around this time to help create glasses to make up the difference.
So what do you think, Flash fans? What’s going to happen in the finale? Is Caitlin going to be the one to betray the team? What cliffhanger will they torture us with over the summer?
