Ok, so it looks like Barry Allen’s actions at the end of Season 2 of The Flash may have big repercussions through The CW’s DC TV Universe.
It looks like, by saving his mum, Barry may have set up their take on the Flashpoint Paradox story from the comics, wherein Barry Allen causes a ripple through time that causes some very big changes in his reality.
It’s interesting to that we know Supergirl is coming to The CW this year and we’re wondering if perhaps Barry’s actions will, like in the comics, cause some of the earths out there to merge, bringing Supergirl and her friends over to our world.
What we reckon will happen in Season three is that Flash, Arrow, Supergirl and Legends of Tomorrow will all continue as their own shows for the first half of their respective seasons, before change and ripples become apparent.
It will be at this point we get the four night crossover event that Arrow himself, Stephen Amell, has already talked about. After all, what could be so big it needs all the characters from Flash, Arrow, Supergirl and Legends of Tomorrow to come together? Yeah, we reckon the flashpoint event.
Heck, we aren’t the only people thinking it…
A new fan-made trailer for Flashpoint has appeared online and does a great job of showing the damage Barry’s actions cost, not just across Earth 1 but the entire multiverse.
So where will that leave Legends of Tomorrow season 2? Well, here’s the details so far…
Well, after the finale of last season, the team will be very different and there’ll be no tome masters this year.
Executive producer Phil Klemmer said the team is “no longer going to be hunted by Time Masters. They’re no longer going to be burdened with having to save the world. It’s no longer going to be about saving Miranda and Jonas… it’s going to have a much, much different tone because our Legends are going to have a totally different purpose… There will be new faces and new everything.”
Two new characters will join the team: “A male in his late-20s to mid-30s is being sought to play a guy who grew up in the shadow of his World War II hero grandfather and has used a Han Solo-like facade to conceal his insecurity — until, that is, the development of super powers enables him to live up to his family legacy.”
“The female member of an elite paramilitary team living in the 1940s. An African-American, she is scrutinized in her time for both her gender and race and thus has worked twice as hard to be a perfect soldier. That said, she blames herself for — and aims to avenge — the death of a team member for whom she had repressed feelings.”
That’s what we know so far…
