SDCC15: 'The Flash' Will Welcome Jay Garrick, Wally West and Professor Zoom in Season 2


If the sight of Jay Garrick's helmet appearing during The Flash's season 1 finale got you excited then the news coming out of Comic-Con should make you really ecstatic. During the Warner Bros Television panel, it was revealed that Garrick's role had been cast and a few more additions will be part of season 2 including the "big bad."

The teaser trailer (see below) shown at Comic-Con mostly recaps the triumphant first season of The CW's ratings juggernaut, The Flash, with only some voiceovers previewing the season 2. One voice belongs to Garrick as played by Teddy Sears (Masters of Sex). He's warning Barry and company of an impending threat. 



THE FLASH made waves at Comic Con 2015 when it revealed Zoom as the season two “big bad” during the show’s panel session in Hall H on Saturday, July 11, 2015. The show’s fast-paced highlight reel also served up an exciting recap of all the season one action, just in time to get fans ready for season two, which debuts Tuesday, October 6, at 8/7c on The CW. #WBSDCC
Also cast is  Shantel VanSantel (The Messengers)who'll play Patti Spivot, Joe West's new partner after Eddie Thawne sacrificed himself during the season 1 finale. In the comics, she's obsessed with metahumans and could serve as a new love interest and ally to Barry. 

Two more major characters joining the series are Wally West and Professor Zoom. No word on casting yet but these are characters longtime fans of The Flash have been clamouring to see. Zoom will be season two's major villain. Considering the showrunners' fan-friendly approach of including heroes and villains, even crossover events, from the comics season two promises to be another epic adventure.

The Flash returns Tuesday, October 6, 2015, at 8 p.m. on The CW.

REVIEW: 'Redneck' #2 by Donny Cates, Lisandro Estherren, and Dee Cunniffe

'Redneck' arrived a month ago redefining the vampire genre by not giving into convention or cliché. In fact, if you've read the first two issues, the vampire angle serves more as subtext than its selling point. It's the perfect approach to this character-driven southern fried drama that simmers with tension and intrigue.

★★★★☆ (4/5)
The Bowman's way of life just got upended and what was once a peaceful and secluded existence is on the verge of war. The vampires of Texas keep to themselves, raise their cattle, drink its blood and sell the meat through their BBQ joint. Seems like a brilliant front to keep them in the shadows while staking out a living. All that is threatened when one of their own is killed after a night on the town. This issues fills in the holes to what might have happened and what the hell is…

WONDER WOMAN OF THE DAY: Fitness Model Gia Macool Embodies the Amazon Princess

The closest we'll ever get, probably, to superheroes in real life is through the great work of cosplayers. You see them at every pop culture convention from the very basic to extremely elaborate costume design. However, you don't have to be a cosplayer to enjoy dressing up as your favorite superhero from time to time. Take fitness model and entrepreneur Gia Macool for example. An accomplished fitness competitor and model, Macool is also a big fan of DC Comics' Wonder Woman. She shows her love of the iconic Amazon Princess in her fitness wear, meal prep accessories and even a full blown photo shoot in a Wonder Woman costume. 

For decades comics have featured very muscular superheroes, male and female, epitomizing the human form at its strongest. So when bodybuilders and fitness pros decide to suit up as these costumed heroes, they are the embodiment of those fictional characters in the flesh. Macool looks like she stepped out of the pages of a Wonder Woman comic with a suit …
