According to sources on Comic Book Resources, The Flash has cast Grey Damon in the role of Mirror Master, one of a number of Flash’s classic rogues who hadn’t yet appeared on the show, CBR reports. He’ll be making his first appearance during the fourth episode of the third season.
When he makes his way to The Flash in the fall, classic villain Dr. Alchemy won’t be the only big-name threat looking to take the Scarlet Speedster’s head off.
Damon, who has previously appeared on Friday Night Lights and Star-Crossed, will play the role of Sam Scudder, the original Mirror Master created in the Silver Age. The character has the ability to manipulate mirrors and other reflective surfaces to a number of ends, including creating custom weapons, altering his appearance, mind control, and — perhaps most common — using them as a medium to travel through, so that he can avoid being captured by the much-faster Flash.
“One of the Flash’s most infamous Rogues, Sam Scudder — aka Mirror Master — is a smooth criminal with a huge ego. Upon discovering he now has the power to travel through any reflective surface, Scudder embarks on a massive crime spree to prove himself the greatest thief that Central City has ever seen,” says the character description from Warner Bros. Television.
Damon currently appears on Aquarius.
Playing off the events of the Season Two finale, which transformed the world of the series like the Flashpoint miniseries from the comics, The Flash returns for its third season on October 4 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on The CW.
We’ve all seen the teaser of a possible new character being introduced in Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. for their upcoming fourth season. That character was none other than Ghost Rider, and at Marvel’s San Diego Comic Con panel, it was announced that American actor Gabriel Luna was set to play Robbie Reyes aka Ghost Rider. Although the announcement was made during the closing panel for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., the producers declined to reveal further details but a shared exclusive happened with Entertainment Weekly which they could reveal that Luna would be portraying the titular character.
Executive producer and head of Marvel television, Jeff Loeb, said in a statement “Season 4 will unquestionably be the series’ biggest, most ambitious story yet, and it all begins with the introduction of one of our greatest legacy characters in Ghost Rider… when the Spirit of Vengeance rides into S.H.I.E.L.D., it’ll change everything.”

There was a recent article on The Verge about how Wonder Woman’s solo film being written by three men is an issue. They then went on about how Wonder Woman was created by male psychologist named Dr. William Moulton Marston with the influence of his wife, Elizabeth, and their partner, Olivia Byrne. Alright, fine. That may be the case but let’s not forget that Wonder Woman has been largely written by men for the past 75 years whether it be Marston, Greg Rucka, Brian Azzarello, or the great George Perez. They all did an outstanding job with the character that highlighted Diana’s independence, bravery, wisdom, and ability to bring hope to people of both genders across the world. Having men write the script for the film isn’t a huge problem as The Verge or anyone else thinks it is.
Geoff Johns and Zack Snyder both have a passion for DC comics and the characters, they know their source material. Johns knows the mythos more than anyone else. Heinberg is both a comic book writer and a prolific teleplay writer as well. He’s worked on JLA, Young Avengers, and, yes, even Wonder Woman. Snyder working on the story makes sense seeing as how he started the DCEU with Man of Steel and Batman v Superman. The only major influence women had on Wonder Woman’s creation was the growing feminist movement in the country at the time when she was created during the 1940’s in the World War II era when more and more women began to work in factories to manufacture equipment for the troops, serve in combat zones as nurses, and in some countries like Russia they actually saw combat action as snipers. There are plenty of women that are involved in this movie already because the director is a woman so how is it a problem that men are writing her?
I can’t wait to see what happens when they find out that the person who wrote Man of Steel isn’t from Krypton, or that George Lucas isn’t from a galaxy far, far away. Be happy that this film has a female in the director’s chair and the job of a director is to bring this film altogether. Be grateful that the cast and crew for this film has a diverse cast of females of multiple races and males of multiple races as well. That’s what Wonder Woman is about. She’s about feminism and equality. She wouldn’t want men to be unequal to women. She wants women to be strong and co-exist in the world instead of being isolated like her fellow Amazons on Themyscira are. That’s her message. Not hard to miss.
According to an article on TV Line and Newsarama, Arrow’s very own John Barrowman, who portrays Malcolm Merlyn, has been promoted to appear on all CW DC superhero shows as a series regular on all Greg Berlanti produced shows such as Flash, Legends of Tomorrow, and Supergirl. His contract is similar to Wentworth Miller’s contract in which he is able to appear on Flash, Legends, and possibly other CW DC shows. Berlanti had this to say “What it really emulates to us is the comic books themselves, where there really are a cast of characters,” Berlanti said of Miller’s new contract. “In success, we hope to continue with other characters finding their way across all the shows.”
Arrow season 5 is set to premiere on October 5 on the CW, The Flash season 3 is set to premiere on October 4 on the CW, Supergirl season 2 is set to premiere on October 10 on the CW, and Legends of Tomorrow season 2 is set to premiere on October 13 on the CW
According to an article on Wales Online, Welsh actor Julian Lewis Jones lands a mysterious role in DC’s upcoming superhero film Justice League! While his role in the film is unknown, Jones had this to say “I’m not allowed to say yet what part I play but let’s just say I’ve a role in what will likely be the most expensive film ever made.” Jones may be best known for his role in Clint Eastwood’s film ‘Invictus‘ where he played the part of Etienne Feyder, the head of Nelson Mandela’s bodyguard team. Jones is well known in the UK for being in the TV series ‘Stella‘ where he plays the character Karl Morris. Although he isn’t well known, we have a feeling he will be after Zack Snyder’s ‘Justice League‘ comes out in theaters on November 17, 2017.
