Warning! Spoilers below for the season 3 finale of The Flash!

Last week’s Flash was full of tears, as Barry (Grant Gustin), desperate to save Iris (Candice Patton) as the clock wound down, went back in time to get Captain Cold (Wentworth Miller) to help him steal an energy source from A.R.G.U.S. This energy was needed to fuel the “speedforce bazooka” that Tracy Brand (Anne Dudek) built, inspired by her muse and crush HR (Tom Cavanagh). After a harrowing reenactment of Jaws, they retrieved it and Barry and Snart said goodbye in a bittersweet moment for Captain Cold fans. The team went to Infantino Street to stop Savitar from killing Iris, but it didn’t work. Savitar ran Iris through and Barry held her body in his arms. Vibe (Carlos Valdes) and Killer Frost (Danielle Panabaker) faced off.

TV Review: The Flash 3.22 “Infantino Street”

The Flash 322-01

The Flash
Season 3 Episode 22: “Infantino Street”
Directed by Michael Allowitz
Written by Andrew Kreisberg and teleplay by Grainne Godfree
Starring Grant Gustin, Jesse L. Martin, Danielle Panabaker, Candice Patton, Carlos Valdes, Tom Cavanagh, Keiynan Lonsdale, Tom Felton
Created by Greg Berlanti, Andrew Kreisberg, Geoff Johns
The CW
Air Date: Tuesday, May 16th, 2017, 8:00pm

Last week on The Flash, Cisco (Carlos Valdes) came up with a flawed (but from the heart) plan to prevent Barry (Grant Gustin) from making new memories, so that Savitar-the-Barry-remnant wouldn’t know what it was. It was too successful. Barry and Savitar got complete amnesia. Both myself and Iris (Candice Patton) were happy to see this lighthearted Barry without all the darkness and pain, falling in love with her all over again. Unfortunately, Barry was also crucial to a court case, resulting in a firebug walking. Said firebug attacked, but Wally (Keiynan Lonsdale) had no powers because Savitar never awakened them, and Barry couldn’t control his. Killer Frost (Danielle Panabaker) showed up to help Cisco and Julian (Tom Felton) fix the mess. They got to the Caitlin underneath. HR and Tracy (Tom Cavanagh, Anne Dudek) started falling in love. She finished the “speed force bazooka” but it needs a lot of energy… energy that is guarded by King Shark.

Well, that was fast. We just learned that Sam Raimi was on a shortlist of potential directors to helm The Flash. Robert Zemeckis and Matthew Vaughn are also among the top names.

But just after that list was reported, word is that Raimi has taken himself out of the running. And that’s just the beginning. Another potential director we didn’t know about, Marc Webb, is also passing. It appears that Barry Allen will be without a father in the standalone film as well, as Billy Crudup has also dropped out. More on these stories below.

Robert Zemeckis, Matthew Vaughn, Sam Raimi In The Running To Direct ‘The Flash’

The Flash Starring Ezra Miller

Warner Bros. isn’t giving up on the cinematic version of The Flash. Though the Scarlett Speedster has only made two cameo appearances, with his first major one coming in Justice League, he has yet to appear in his own standalone film. After the studio had a falling out with Seth Grahame-Smith and Rick Famuyiwa over creative differences, the studio went back to the drawing board, canned ditched Phil Lord and Chris Miller’s draft, and opted to use a script written by Joby Harold (King Arthur: Legend of the Sword).

Now WB is ready to find a director. It’s being reported that Robert Zemeckis (Back to the Future, Who Framed Roger Rabbit), who had been previously rumored, is still in the running, while the studio has also had meetings with Matthew Vaughn (X-Men: First Class, Kingsman) and Sam Raimi (Evil Dead and Spider-Man trilogies). More on the story below.

Last week on The Flash, Barry (Grant Gustin) went to the year 2024 to find out who Savitar really is. Future Cisco (Carlos Valdes) was super happy to see him. He wanted to get the gang back together, because after Iris (Candice Patton) died, Barry went in a downward spiral. And he never did find out Savitar’s identity. Barry went to return to 2017, but got stuck and helped Cisco reunite everyone. They defeated 2 metas, and Future Barry gave Barry some tech that may help save Iris.

Rumor: WB Circling Robert Zemeckis To Direct ‘The Flash’ Movie
eelyajekiM   |  

The Flash

Warner Bros.’ big-screen adaptation of The Flash has seen better days. The standalone feature for the Scarlet Speedester lost two directors over creative differences in one year alone, and will undoubtedly miss its March 16, 2018, release date. Still, the studio firmly believes that the film deserves a theatrical debut. Now that may be happening, as WB is reportedly setting their sights on Back To The Future director Robert Zemeckis to helm the film. More on the story below.

Last time on The Flash, the new meta in town was Abra Kadabra (David Dastmalchian), a 64th century Flash-hating villain with Gypsy (Jessica Camacho) on his tail. He withheld Savitar knowledge. Barry (Grant Gustin) won’t free the murderer in a deal, but Joe (Jesse L. Martin) did. A fight and ensued and Caitlin (Danielle Panabaker) got speared with a pole, making surgery with no anesthesia and no doctor a necessity. Julian (Tom Felton) managed to do a decent job to no avail. Caitlin coded. Julian pulled off her protective necklace turning her into Killer Frost. Barry told Joe and Iris he was going to the future for answers.

TV Review: The Flash 3.18 “Abra Kadabra”
Olympus Athens   |  

The Flash 318-02

The Flash
Season 3 Episode 18: “Abra Kadabra”
Directed by Nina Lopez-Corrado
Written by Brooke Roberts & David Kob
Starring Grant Gustin, Jesse L. Martin, Danielle Panabaker, Candice Patton, Carlos Valdes, Tom Cavanagh, Keiynan Lonsdale, Tom Felton, Violett Beane
Created by Greg Berlanti, Andrew Kreisberg, Geoff Johns
The CW
Air Date: Tuesday, March 28th, 2017, 8:00pm

Last week on The Flash, all my dreams came true as Barry and the Barettes did a few musical numbers. Also a Supergirl, Legends of Tomorrow, and Arrow-ish crossover (latter 2 and The Flash came from Arrow), a villain called the Music Meister (Darren Criss, Glee) trapped Kara Danvers (Melissa Benoist) in a musical dreamworld, mentioning The Flash (Grant Gustin) as he exited. Mon-El and J’onn (Chris Wood, David Harewood) brought her to S.T.A.R. Labs for help. The Music Meister got pinched, but not before he sent Barry down the rabbit hole as well. The rules were they had to move the story (of forbidden mob love), along with performances of some snappy numbers. Here’s where Gustin, Benoist, Carlos Valdes (Cisco), Jeremy Jordan (Winn), Jesse L. Martin (Joe West), Victor Garber (Stein), and John Barrowman (Malcolm Merlyn) got to show off their chops with some awesome original and cover songs. My favorite, “I’m Your Superfriend,” was written by Rachel Bloom (Crazy Ex-Girlfriend – my new guilty pleasure), and was a complete delight, with Benoist and Gustin using comedy and tap to make me smile. Everything worked out – Barry and Iris (Candice Patton) and Mon-El and Kara reconciled and escaped the dreamworld, because the Music Meister wasn’t a villain at all. He did this for love. This episode also showed off Gustin’s funny side.

Last night on Supergirl, a musical was briefly mentioned as a suggestion for a movie from Mon-El to Kara (Chris Woods, Melissa Benoist). Then… at the end of the episode, an alien was brought in who spoke to Kara, “I’ve been looking for you.” He breaks out of his cuffs and whammies her with his eyes. She passes out and opens her eyes to a dream state where she is all dolled up and pushed onstage to sing.

Spoilers for The Flash musical below.
