THOUGHTS ON THIS WEEKS SHOWS
Supergirl - Winn will turn into a villian, the new Toyman, since he can't have Kara
Flash - Awesome to see the Turtle Man, who was Barry Allen's first foe in Showcase #4, get in on the new series
Agent Carter - Two episodes back to back (Granted aired like a movie) is just too long with all the commerical breaks, nothing from these episodes stood out to me.
Arrow - Mediorce start up to the second half the season , Speedy having issues of consciece, Felicity being paralyzed from the waist down is too 'Barbara Gordan-esq'... and Damian Dark storyline really seems to be running in circles
DC Legends of Tomorrow - Arthur Darvill who played Rory on Doctor Who is the time traveling Rip Hunter... genius casting, though with him, John Barrowman and Alex Kingston in the DC TV Uninverse, wonder what other Doctor Who Alumni is coming along. Pilot episode itself was top notch, get a reminder of who these folks were on Arrow and Flash, what they can do, establish character dynamics, looks like its going to be a lot of fun
THE FLASH MOVIE
DC Comics Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns broke down the backstory for the upcoming movie version of The Flash. Johns said this:
Barry Allen… his mother is killed. His father is blamed for it, [and] put in prison. He becomes obsessed with forensic science. He wants to prove that his father was innocent. One night, working on his mother’s case, a bolt of lightning hits him and he gains super speed.
THAT'S THE PLOT FOR FIRST EPISODE OF THE TV Series! So in short, it's going to confuse fans who have been watching the show and wondering that the hell is going on when the movie its with a different actor in the role.
Now, this season on Flash, the character Wally West (who in the comics would succeed Barry Allan after he's killed) was recently introduced, so the only way this won't confused fans of the show is for Barry to be killed off, Wally steps in the role of the Flash, and the movie Universe gets Barry Alan as the scarlet speedster.
