With eight episodes left in the freshman season of The Flash and the third season of Arrow, story arcs are beginning to come into focus as the final stretch of the year begins. For Arrow, that means the ultimate face-off between Oliver Queen and Ra's Al Ghul and for The Flash it means the reveal of who killed Barry Allen's mother. Both look to be coming along with a heck of a lot more and now we have a trailer for each series to whet our appetites.

These two sizzle reels premiered at PaleyFest and showcase a lot of footage and some spoilery reveals for both shows. The trailer for Arrow gives us a look at Ray Palmer's A.T.O.M. suit in use which includes electro-power from the gloves. We also see Thea and Roy get back together, Ray learn Oliver's true identity, the return of Suicide Squad, and the discovery of the Arrow Cave by none other than Captain Lance.

On The Flash, we see the next crossover between the two DC Comics series, featuring Laurel, Ray Palmer and Felicity visiting S.T.A.R. Labs, much to Cisco's delight. We get a fleeting look at Gorilla Grodd, Mark Hamill chewing scenery like a champ as The Trickster, and the return of Captain Cold and Heatwave.

Both series are some of the most fun on television right now and these cinematic trailers tease exactly why. Neither is trying to be the next THE DARK KNIGHT or MAN OF STEEL but both shows really want to tell good comic book stories in their own ways. Arrow is dark and The Flash is a bit lighter, but neither is short on action. Catch up now before the seasons end.

New episodes premiere this week on The CW. The finales for The Flash and Arrow air on May 11th and 13th, respectively.

Flash is the best superhero show TV has ever had, and this is coming from a Marvel and comic book fanboi. The show is the perfect blend of light and serious, while still staying pretty damn true to the comic storylines. Minor differences can be nitpicked (the red color of the suit) but its amazing what this show has done. The special effects on the show are jaw dropping really when you consider it's on the CW. I can't heap enough praise on that show. I've never been a fan of green arrow so I
Flash is the best superhero show TV has ever had, and this is coming from a Marvel and comic book fanboi. The show is the perfect blend of light and serious, while still staying pretty damn true to the comic storylines. Minor differences can be nitpicked (the red color of the suit) but its amazing what this show has done. The special effects on the show are jaw dropping really when you consider it's on the CW. I can't heap enough praise on that show. I've never been a fan of green arrow so I don't watch the show. One day I'll catch up but I've never liked the character.

As far as Flash goes well the writing is on the wall because of the new superhero team up series. My guess is by years end this will happen. Barry will discover his mother's killer. There will be two Reverse Flashes. Eddie will be one of them, Wells the other. I think the way this series is going Wells will assume the Eobard Thawne version of the Reverse Flash/Professor Zoom. That version tried to challenge Barry to get better, never to kill him. Eddie on the other hand I think will be the Hunter Zolomon version of Reverse Flash. That one did try to kill him. My guess is this storyline is going the direction of the Flashpoint story. If that is the case the Hunter Zolomon version never appears again. Basically I see Barry learning who killed his mom, going back in time and stopping it. Also in the new future created by the new past Barry alters, Captain Cold becomes good and Firestorm is Victor Garber only not a blend of two people. See the new superhero team up show has both a good Captain Cold and there is no mention of Amell in it only Garber. So that means one man is Firestorm not two. I am guessing also Black Canary is alive again since the timeline is completely changed and the actress is signed to this new series as well. So the events of the Flash show will impact not just the Flash series but ALL DC television universe shows, and that is nothing short of fucking awesome.


p.s. I love that the Trickster put the exploding bracelet on Barry. it is a nod to Batman's plan in Justice League: Doom animated movie. Batman devises plans to take down all the Justice league as a contingency in case any of them turned. For Barry is was a bracelet that ancored through his bones on his arm. He basically had to do his best "Speed" movie impression. I won't reveal the end in case this mimics it.

BTW, get ready for a swerve....

Watch the part where Cavanaugh says "I promise you Barry, you will die...." He's not threatening him, he's WARNING him. Whether he's a time traveler, someone who stumbled on a way to see the future, or whatever, he is something other than the threat they are trying to make him appear to be.

The Flash looks great!

Arrow's trailer looks great as well, but the show has let me down too many times to believe it's going to get good again. Laurel is so terrible it's worse than fingernails on a chalkboard. On the bright side maybe after this season they'll finally decide to quit doing half the show in ridiculous backstory that literally makes no sense and undermines the character arcs the show has established.

Excited to see how Arrow finishes this season with the Ra's Al Ghul storyline coming to a head.

As for Flash, the time travel aspects should only open the show that much more with various possibilities. I wonder if the time travel with affect the storyline and/or universe of Arrow at all.
