Did you watch last night’s The Flash? If not, find a way to remedy that as soon as you can. Between Mark Hamill reprising his role as the Trickster from the 1990 version of the series and all the surprises, it was one heck of a roller coaster. They manage to make so many of their episodes feel like season finales, and it’s exciting. Next week’s The Flash looks like it might be a touch more lighthearted as members of Team Arrow come to Central City. Keep reading to see photos from the next The Flash and Arrow crossover, to learn about a new Stan Lee superhero series, and more.
Awkward Dinner Conversations. When Ray Palmer needs help with his Atom suit, he and Felicity decide the only place to go is STAR Labs. Besides fighting a threatening attack from a new metahuman, Felicity, Ray, Iris, Eddie, and Barry go out for a group dinner. I already feel for Barry being the fifth wheel. See more photos from the next episode of The Flash, “All Star Team Up,” at CBR.
Stan Lee Is Making His Luck. Stan Lee landed his first British production with Carnival Films. Lucky Man is a 10-part drama starring James Nesbitt. The concept for the story came from Lee: Harry Clayton (Nesbitt), a cop, receives a charm that apparently gives him (or the wearer) the ability to control luck. I wouldn’t mind borrowing that for a day. As of right now, Sky 1 is planning to debut the series in 2016. [Deadline]
Walkers All Over. It’s been quite the week for The Walking Dead. Not only did Season 5 of the series come to an intense end on Sunday night, AMC also announced the title for The Walking Dead spinoff, Fear the Walking Dead, and showed a teaser. Even if you watched carefully or repeatedly, there’s a lot of information to absorb. Jessica Chobot breaks it all down in yesterday’s Nerdist News.
Heroes on Twitter. NBC’s Heroes Reborn premieres this fall, and before you know it, we’ll seeing teasers and official promotional material. But until then, we’ll take what we can get and in this case, it’s a photo of the cast. Zachary Levi shared the image on Twitter yesterday and it features: Judi Shekoni, Henry Zebrowski, Robbie Kay, Ryan Guzman, Toru Uchikado, Jack Coleman, and Kiki Sukezane. [TVLine]
Luke Cage. Marvel has found it’s showrunner for their upcoming Luke Cage series on Netflix. Cheo Hodari Coker (Southland) will step into the role, also serving as an executive producer on the series and is set to write the first two episodes. Marvel’s Luke Cage is scheduled to premiere in 2016. [CBR]
Time Traveler. Arthur Darvill isn’t a stranger to traveling through time thanks to his role on Doctor Who, and that experience may help him in his new role. He’s been cast as Rip Hunter for the upcoming Arrow/The Flash spinoff. This deal just keeps getting better all the time. Rip Hunter is “a roguish time traveler who hides the strains of being responsible for history itself behind a facade of charm and wit.” Well, we know Darvill can handle charm and wit. I’m excited.

Let’s Join Hands. Solving the Mark of Cain problem might not be at the top of Dean’s list these days, but Sam isn’t giving up. In tonight’s episode of Supernatural, he and Castiel follow a lead about the Mark while Dean meets up with Rowena. I doubt she wants to buy him a drink. Check out more photos from “Inside Man” at TV Fanatic.
There Will Be Blood. PlayStation Network’s Powers has shown its versatility over the first handful of episodes. They can handle comedy, crime, and even horror. The fourth episode of the season was all about blood and running around dark corridors. Read Scott’s review of “Devil in a Garbage Bag.”
