About That Surprise Guest Star In “Flashpoint”

The new police captain in the Flash season premiere may look familiar to fans.

Sometimes… very rarely… a big spoiler doesn’t leak. And as far as we know, this one didn’t.

If you have not seen the Flash season premiere “Flashpoint” yet, read no more!

juliomendezIn the Flashpoint universe, the police captain isn’t Singh, but instead someone else…. Captain Julio Mendez.

Julio Mendez was a character in the original Flash TV series with John Wesley Shipp. He was played by actor Alex Desert, who reprised the role for the season premiere. He’s the fifth cast member from the original Flash series to show up: Beyond John Wesley Shipp, Amanda Pays (Dr. Tina McGee) played Mercury Labs’ “Dr. Christina McGee,” Mark Hamill reprised his role as the Trickster, and Vito D’Ambrosio (Officer Tony Bellows) is now Mayor Anthony Bellows of Central City. Desert’s appearance gets all the majors in…. unless Bryan Cranston, Angela Bassett, Paula Marshall, or David Cassidy want to show up. David Cassidy’s daughter Katie played “Black Siren” last season, though.

Flash writers, we threatened you if you didn’t find a role for Mr. Desert in Season Three, not knowing you had already done it. Aaron & Todd Helbing hinted we’d see a big Easter egg for the classic Flash show in our interview, and we still had no idea. Well-played, team. Well-played. Now, of course we’ll want to know if he has a non-Flashpoint counterpart, and whether or not he’ll be attending the wedding of Jay Garrick and Dr. Christina McGee that exists in our fanfiction-induced minds.

    So great! I’ve been begging (and tweeting) for him to show up. Ideally I was hoping as a tribute to the original series, they’d not only bring him in, but cast him as Doctor Desmond Powell / Nightshade. He could be a sort of vigilante mentor to Barry. They had that incredible moment in the old show where Barry starts to reveal his identity and Powell stops him and says “I don’t need to know, and you don’t need to complication.”
    Who knows? Even if they kept his name from before, there’s no reason he couldn’t but on the mask and fedora!

Flash Season 7: First Five Episode Titles Revealed

Titles for the first five episodes of The Flash Season 7 have been revealed.

Published

The titles for the first five episodes of The Flash Season 7 have made their way on to the Internet, and while they’re always subject to change prior to an official press release from The CW, these titles could be hints as to what is coming in our future.

The seventh season of The Flash is currently scheduled to premiere February 23, 2021 on The CW; most of the first episode of the season, “All’s Well That Ends Wells,” was shot prior to this year’s COVID-19 pandemic. It has been speculated by some like Pagey that the third episode back, “Mother,” is the conclusion of the Mirror Master storyline.

Here’s the current schedule, as always subject to change:

Episode #7.1: “All’s Well That Ends Wells” (2/23/21)
Episode #7.2: “The Speed of Thought” (3/2/21)
Episode #7.3: “Mother” (3/9/21)
Episode #7.4: “Central City Strong” (3/16/21)
Episode #7.5: “Fear Me” (3/23/21)

Report: The Flash Temporarily Pauses Production

Deadline is reporting that The Flash has temporarily paused production due to a positive COVID-19 test.

Deadline is reporting that The Flash production in Vancouver has temporarily paused after someone working on the series has tested positive for COVID-19. Here’s what they had to say about what has happened:

“The asymptomatic diagnosis was confirmed through the rigorous testing protocols implemented by The Flash studio Warner Bros. TV for all of its production employees. Out of an abundance of caution, production on The Flash has been temporarily suspended and contact tracing has been initiated. According to sources, the studio is currently evaluating adjustments to the production schedule in order to resume filming without the affected employee and potential close contacts, who are self-isolating.”

The Deadline piece also noted that The Flash isn’t the only show to shut down production for this reason. Each series that has returned to production has implemented strong safety protocols which involve their casts and crews frequently testing. It is our hope that this team member remains asymptomatic and that everyone stays safe and healthy on The Flash and every other production that has resumed.

The Flash Season 7 is scheduled to premiere February 23 on The CW.

Flash Season 7 Premiere Date Revealed

The CW has revealed a premiere date for The Flash Season 7.

Published

on

We finally have a date for the return of The Flash as The CW has announced a February 23 return for the Scarlet Speedster!

This may seem a bit late, but look at it this way: We’ll have fewer repeats and the show will be paired with the series premiere of Superman & Lois starring Tyler Hoechlin and Elizabeth Tulloch as that other superhero/journalist wife team!

As The Flash Season 7 begins, the show will wrap up the Season 6 storylines that were so rudely interrupted by COVID before taking the Scarlet Speedster (Grant Gustin) on to new journeys.

You can find the full list of CW premiere dates here.

Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) lived a normal life as a perpetually tardy C.S.I. in the Central City Police Department. Barry’s life changed forever when the S.T.A.R. Labs Particle Accelerator exploded, creating a dark-matter lightning storm that struck Barry, bestowing him with super- speed and making him the fastest man alive — The Flash.

After a thrilling cliffhanger last season which saw the new Mirror Master (Efrat Dor) victorious and still-at-large in Central City, The Flash must regroup in order to stop her and find a way to make contact with his missing wife, Iris West-Allen (Candice Patton). With help from the rest of Team Flash, which includes superheroes Caitlin Snow (Danielle Panabaker), Cisco Ramon (Carlos Valdes) and Nash Wells (Tom Cavanagh), as well as the Flash’s adoptive father Joe West (Jesse L. Martin), Meta-Attorney Cecile Horton (Danielle Nicolet), tough cub reporter Allegra Garcia (Kayla Compton) and brilliant tech-nerd Chester P. Runk (Brandon McKnight)… Flash will ultimately defeat Mirror Master. But in doing so, he’ll also unleash an even more powerful and devastating threat on Central City: one that threatens to tear his team—and his marriage—apart.

Based on the characters from DC, THE FLASH is from Bonanza Productions Inc. in association with Berlanti Productions and Warner Bros. Television, with executive producers Greg Berlanti (“Arrow,” “Supergirl,” “Riverdale”), Eric Wallace (“Teen Wolf,” “Eureka”) and Sarah Schechter (“Arrow,” “Supergirl,” “Riverdale”).
