You’ve had a chance to watch the latest episode of The Flash, now find out what you may (or may not) have missed in this week’s episode, “The Fury of Firestorm” in the latest installment of Flashback!
Man, it’s tough attending a big convention when you’re sick as a dog! But the motto for Megacon 2015 was “It’s Fun Time!” and so I soldiered through this high-octane event and still enjoyed what I could!
Though we got our first look at Firestorm in this week’s episode of The Flash, Robbie Amell hasn’t donned the costume we all know and love. Or has he? The actor took to Instagram to tease us with the first real look at the familiar logo.
Last night’s episode of The Flash, once again featured a number of nods to characters and events from the DC universe. Did you catch them all? Take the jump for ten fun facts and nods to the DCU (warning: potential spoilers ahead)
If you were paying close attention to the premiere episode of The Flash, you heard the name Ronnie Raymond’s name dropped as one of the STAR Labs people who were “lost” in the explosion. Does that mean Firestorm is on the way? Yes. Yes it does.
