Shows You Should Keep An Eye Out For:

Hey everyone! I hope you’re all doing well. I wanted to write an article on current and upcoming shows I think everyone should take notice of and check out. There are a lot of current and upcoming shows on television and streaming services such as Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon, and judging from the high number of shows on both platforms, it might be hard to keep up with everything. So to make things easier, in today’s article I’ll be running down a list of shows that are definitely worth checking out:

Let’s begin:

Into The Badlands:

Badlands Season Three-thumb-860xauto-70878

Al Gough and Miles Millar who are best known for the CW’s hit television series Smallville that ran for 10 seasons, have come together again and created AMC’s new hit series Into The Badlands. The show follows Sunny (Daniel Wu) who after finding out the woman he loves Veil (Madeline Mantock) is pregnant, tries to find a way out of the badlands in hopes of providing a more hopeful future for himself and his family. Into The Badlands is phenomenal in what it is able to accomplish on television. It is a show that pays respect and is inspired by Japanese cinema and is able to bring martial arts to life in a way that has never been done before. On top of that, it has a very diverse cast where each character serves a true purpose to the overall story in a way that doesn’t feel rushed. The style and visuals of the show is beautiful and truly breathtaking. The show looks and feels unique from other television shows out right now, and that’s because the cast and crew work hard to provide a show that actually feels like you’re watching an epic event unfold on screen. Into The Badlands is a show that gets more wild each season in all the best ways. I highly recommend you check it out. You won’t be disappointed.

Sharp Objects:

so_101_070717_amf00451_-_h_2018

Sharp Objects is an upcoming miniseries developed by Marti Noxon who is currently executive producer of Lifetime’s comedy drama UnReal and is directed by Jean-Marc Vallee who is best known for HBO’s Emmy Award winning show Big Little Lies. Sharp Objects follows the story of a reporter Camille Preaker (Amy Adams) who returns home to solve the murder of two preteen girls while also trying to unravel mysteries in hopes of finding answers to her own dark past. If you haven’t figured it out yet, one of the biggest reasons you should lookout for this show is that it is starring Amy Adams who in past has won a Golden Globe Award for best actress in films such as American Hustle and Big Eyes, and was also nominated for the Academy Award for Best Actress for the film American Hustle. Amy Adams is an actress that has been in well known films such as Catch Me If You Can, Nocturnal Animals, Man Of Steel, and Arrival. Adams is an actress that is able to bring her characters to life in a way that almost makes them feel real. She is able to deliver amazing performances in any of the roles she plays that make you emotionally connected with her characters on screen. The idea of Amy Adams being involved in a HBO series is fantastic, and the premise of the show sounds intriguing enough to grab anyone’s interest. This is a show I highly recommend you keep an eye on. I got a feeling it is going to deliver big time.

The Witcher:

the-witcher-tv-show-will-be-8-episodes-long-likely-released_h8kv

The Witcher is an upcoming Netflix series based on the popular book series written by Andrzej Sapkowski. The series follows the story of a witcher by the name Geralt of Rivera who is trying to find his place in a world full of monsters such as hellhounds, ghouls, ghosts, werewolves, and many more. Right off the bat if you’re someone who is in love with fantasy folklores that involves creatures such as vampires, dragons, or elfs, then you should already know this sounds like a show made for you. The series is in pre-production as of right now, and is aiming for a 2020 release. Lauren Hissrich who was co executive producer on Marvel’s DareDevil is attached as writer for the show with no director announced as of yet. The show will be 8 episodes long and the show according to Hissrich is said to be action-packed and highly focused on character and story. Little is known about the show as of now, but more news is bound to be released as we reach closer to the release of the show. If you’re a fan of GOT(Game Of Thornes) or LOTR(Lord Of The Rings), then this show will most probably gain your interest. Based on the news released right now, the show sounds promising and Netflix and Hissrich are doing their best to deliver to new and old fans the best show possible. Keep an eye out for this one.

The Purge (TV Series):

160701-Schager-Purge-2016-tease_kyk74l

The Purge is an upcoming 10-episode long television series based on the highly successful Purge films set to air on Syfy with no release date as of yet. Gabriel Chavarria best known for his work on War For The Planet Of The Apes and Jessica Garza best known for her work on the television series Six have been cast as leads for the show. Chavarria plays the part of Miguel who is a U.S. Marine who receives a letter from his younger sister Penelope describing to be in danger forcing Miguel to rush home on the night The Purge begins. Penelope played by Jessica Garza is part of a cult and is willing to serve and sacrifice herself for her leader by any means necessary. Anthony Hemmingway is set to direct the series, and little details about the show are known right now, but judging from how popular the Purge films are, this series has a high chance of being an instant hit. I suggest you check this show out when it is released. It sounds like a wild ride that you won’t want to miss!

Westworld:

Coming-Soon-Trailer_1

Westworld is a HBO sci-fi series created by Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy. Jonathan Nolan is best known for his work on The Dark Knight, Prestige, Interstellar, and Person Of Interest. Lisa Joy is best known for her work on Pushing Daises and Burn Notice. Westworld is a show set in a Western themed park in the near future where life-like androids known as hosts are made to serve the fantasies of guests that visit the park. The show is currently on its second season airing on HBO, and is without a doubt one of HBO’s biggest hits in years. Westworld raises questions such as: What is consciousness?  How much control do we have on technology, and What does it mean to be alive?. This is a show that is a huge reflection on us as people, how we choose to live as a society, the choices we make in life, and the consequences we face based on those choices. The storytelling on this show is exceptional and the visuals are done in such a way that makes it feel as if you are witnessing a film on screen. The cast on this show is fantastic and involves names such as Evan Rachel Wood, Thandie Newton, Jeffrey Wright, Tessa Thompson, Ed Harris, Anthony Hopkins, and many more. This is a show that will leave you speechless multiple times and leave you asking for more after each episode. If you are a fan of sci-fi or just a fan of great storytelling in general, I highly recommend you watch this show. It will shock you in more ways than one.

That’s it for my list of current and upcoming shows you should be on the lookout for. I hope you enjoyed this article, and comment below and let me know what you thought of this list or if you have any shows you recommend that didn’t make it to this list. I hope you all have a great day. Peace!

Why Westworld’s Lisa Joy is the best candidate to write and direct Batwoman(Katherine Kane)

For those that don’t know, Lisa Joy is an American screenwriter, producer and director, and has done work on multiple television shows such as Pushing Daisies, Burn Notice, and most recently HBO’s most critically acclaimed show Westworld which she is co- creator along with her husband Jonathan Nolan. Westworld has been met with outstanding positive reviews and has won over 20 Emmy Nominations. Lisa Joy has mostly worked as a writer and producer on her projects, but will be making her directorial debut on Westworld season 2.

Lisa Joy has proven time and time again that she is able to create stories with characters that people are able to both resonate with and appreciate. Looking at her work on Westworld, Lisa has created stories that have multiple layers to them that challenges and encourages viewers to ask questions such as: What is reality? What is consciousness? And ultimately what does it truly mean to be human?

  • SHE KNOWS HOW TO CREATE GREAT COMPLEX CHARACTERS THAT PEOPLE CAN RESONATE WITH:

source (1)

The characters she has written are multi-dimensional and constantly evolve layer by layer throughout the series. One example would be Evan Rachel Wood’s character Dolores who is one of the main characters on the show Westworld that the story centers around, and without giving too much of the story away, we see Dolores slowly start to realize her entire life was based around a constructed lie and as she learns this truth, we see her struggle to the point where her morality is challenged and as the show goes on, she begins to question the nature of her own reality. These questions she begins to have about herself causes her to go on a journey of self discovery where we see her eventually come to a realization on who she is, where she’s from, and who she needs to be to truly save herself and the ones she cares about.

  • KATHERINE KANE: BATWOMAN

batwoman1

 

Katherine Kane also goes through a journey of self discovery as well. In the DC comics, Katherine Kane loses her mother and sister after they’re kidnapped by a group known as the Religion Of Crime. The Religion Of Crime is an secret organization that has been working in the shadows for years and in this organization people follow the word of a Crime Bible that teaches lessons on murder, lust, greed, and all other kinds of crimes as a way to control society through means of chaos. Katherine Kane eventually joins the military like her parents as a way to impress her father, and to fight for those that can’t fight for themselves but unfortunately due to her commander finding out about her relationship with another female soldier, she is discharged from the Marines because of her sexuality. After this, Katherine later on becomes notorious for being care free, her drinking and partying mostly due to her struggling to find her  place in the world. She eventually finds her purpose one night when she encounters a few muggers, and is saved by Batman. Katherine Kane becomes inspired to become a crime fighter not due to her first encounter with Batman, but due to her obsession with wanting to fight crime which causes her to realize she can make a difference in the world that she wasn’t able to make being in the military. Once realizing her purpose, Katherine Kane is supported by her father who has her travel across the world for two years learning different forms of martial arts and mentally understanding the struggles that comes with being a hero and how far she is willing to go to continue down her path as a figure that can inspire others in ways others can’t.

Katherine Kane is a complex character that goes through an incredible journey of finding herself and understanding the broken world around her. Katherine’s struggle with villains such as The Religion Of Crime is what causes her to embody the role of Batwoman and truly make a difference in her city. Lisa Joy over the years has written many characters that struggle with their morality, and struggle trying to find their place in a world that seems lost. Lisa Joy is great at telling stories that can have a long profound affect on people in a way that is inspiring and uplifting. Her skills as a writer and producer makes her one of the best in the business of Hollywood. She knows how to resonate with the audience emotionally and mentally in a way that truly feels human, and that is something  that is missing with most superhero movies nowadays aside from a few such as Batman Begins, Wonder Woman, and Black Panther. The ability Lisa Joy has to be able to reach out to the audience in a way that causes them to question things about themselves they never would have ask before, is what makes her the perfect candidate to write, produce and direct Batwoman.

  • SHE’S A GREAT WRITER AND KNOWS HOW TO RESONATE WITH THE AUDIENCE:

2016+Summer+TCA+Tour+Day+4+HV5IE42m0Col

 

Lisa Joy is not only a great female writer, she is a great writer period and has a good idea and understanding on how people think, and what they want to see on screen today. Warner Brothers, giving Lisa Joy this opportunity will not only benefit you with a great film that can truly be successful if she’s allowed full control on this project, but also it is a film that can and will benefit the general public today as well. Aside from the fact that Batwoman has a similar name as Batman, she is in the end a completely different character than Bruce Wayne and has her own unique origin story that isn’t tied to Batman at all. Having Lisa Joy make this movie can allow her to truly make this character shine in a way that hasn’t been done before, and can allow for another female character along with Wonder Woman that audiences across the globe can be inspired by and love.

Lastly, Warner Brothers I truly believe by bringing Lisa Joy onto this project, it will be like finding gold in a field of dust. If this is a project that you’re currently not interested in, I highly suggest you take the chance and allow Lisa Joy to make a film about a character that can quite possibly change the game in superhero films not just for today, but for years to come. I wish the best to all of you, and I hope you take my suggestion into consideration. #LisaJoyForBatwoman #Batwoman

 

 

 

 

 

Ready Player One: A true love letter to fans of pop culture everywhere!

Ready Player One is a science fiction adventure film directed and produced by Steven Spielberg and written by Zak Penn and Ernest Cline. The film is based on the 2011 novel which also shares the same name, and is also written by Ernest Cline himself. The film stars Tye Sheridan, Olivia Cooke, Ben Mendelsohn, Lena Waithe, Phillip Zhao, Win Morisaki, Hannah Kamen, Mark Rylance, and Simon Pegg.

The Plot:

ready-player-one-easter-eggs-cover-1097465

The film takes place in the year 2045 where the world has become overpopulated and broken. In order to get away from the harsh depressing reality life has become, people now escape through a virtual reality world known as the OASIS. The OASIS is a virtual reality system created by James Halliday who is played by Mark Rylance. The OASIS was created to be a Utopia where people are able to not only escape their harsh lives, but also interact with one another from any where in the world, and be who they want to be based on their own imagination making the possibilities in the OASIS endless. Sometime before the film takes place, James Halliday passes away and decides to create a tournament where he hides three keys throughout the OASIS. The one who finds all three keys is granted half a trillion dollars along with complete control of the OASIS. Controlling the OASIS means complete control of the world and due to this, people known as Gunthers, have gone on the hunt to find the keys in order to control the future

The Characters:

5abce6d632167423008b4669-750-375

The Cast is huge, but in this review I’ll be discussing a few of the main characters introduced in this film. Starting off with:

Wade Watts played by Tye Sheridan:

742b974c-090e-4e58-b360-5ad53cc3c04a-tumblr_p0rm5qagsz1ttzu1no1_540

is the main protagonist of this story who when introduced in this film is shown to be living in the stacks with his aunt and abusive boyfriend. In the OASIS, Wade takes on the name Parzival who is a gunther, and is shown to be a huge 80s fan much like his hero and the man he’s inspired by throughout the film, James Halliday(Mark Rylance). Sometime early on in the film, Wade ends up finding the first key and in doing so, eventually becomes a target by everyone including the Innovative Online Industries(IOI). Tye Sheridan shines in this role as Wade Watts and does a great job portraying a character that is relatable, fun, chill and overall a character you want to root for throughout the film.

Aech  played by Lena Waithe:

Ready Player One - animated gif - game battle war

is also a Gunther and Wade’s best friend. Aech in the film not only helps Wade hunt for the hidden keys, but also owns a garage in the virtual system where he can fix and create a variety of vehicles and items, which makes him a popular player in the OASIS just based on those skills alone. Throughout the film Aech along with Wade and the rest of the high five battle the IOI for the three keys and saving the future. Lena Waithe does a wonderful job in her role as Aech and is both funny and charming in this movie along with bringing great humor that many fans will have a joy watching on screen.

Art3mis played by Olivia Cooke:

20358752_review-ready-player-one_t132c8c30

is also a Gunther and leader of a revolution who’s sole purpose is to stop and take down the IOI before they obtain the three keys. Due to her work in her hunt for the three keys, Art3mis is known to be one of the most popular players in the OASIS. Art3mis is also the love interest for Wade Watts and the two of them quickly gain an attraction towards one another on their journey throughout the film. Olivia Cooke is amazing in her role as Art3mis. Olivia brings a great balance of strength and empathy for her character that in the end makes many viewers including myself love her the same way Wade does in the film, and the strength she brings to her role makes her character awesome in more ways than one.

Nolan Sorrento played by Ben Mendelsohn:

tumblr_p0r34lYd4N1tlyun5o2_540

is the CEO of Innovative Online Industries(IOI), and is the main antagonist of the film. After Wade Watts ends up finding the first key, Nolan Sorrento hunts down Wade and his friends and tries to  prevent them from finding the rest of the hidden keys by any means necessary in order to obtain them himself and control the OASIS. Ben Mendelsohn gives off another great performance as the villain of this story, and is able to bring a cold level headed attitude that is well appreciated and overall fun to watch!

James Halliday played by Mark Rylance:

3ed177aea04613447fda96300d326e2fb117f1f0

creates the OASIS along with his friend Ogden Morrow, and creates an Easter Egg hunt for three hidden keys he scatters throughout the OASIS, granting the winner a fortune and complete control of the virtual system. He is also Wade Watts biggest hero and inspiration in the film. Mark Rylance is able to give a performance that makes you understand the character James Halliday on a deep emotional level that many will appreciate and love.

Ogden Morrow played by Simon Pegg:

Ready-Player-One-Movie-Simon-Pegg-Ogden-Morrow

is co-creator of the OASIS along with his best friend James Halliday, and sometime before the beginning of the film has a fallen out with James, due to trying to help him become more connected with the real world and less connected with virtual world. Simon Pegg is great addition to the cast and his role in this film without going into spoilers is welcoming and meaningful to the overall plot of the film.

My thoughts on the movie:

Ready Player One is an amazing film that is very much not only a throwback to 80s pop culture but also a well written science fiction adventure that tells the story of what it means to become form a bond with people no matter where or who they are, and also the consequences of what could happen if one becomes too obsessed with technology and losses connection with the real world. Steven Spielberg does a great job creating a utopian world that connects with many fans of pop culture along with a cast that also does a great job portraying characters that are not only believable, but also relatable and easy to understand. Ready Player One is a film with not just great writing, acting and directing, but also great cinematography that helps introduce a world full of imagination and wonder that makes it easy for viewers to believe in and love, and in the end allows Steven Spielberg to create magic on screen that many have not seen before in other films. Ready Player One is definitely a must watch for anyone, and is a film that I believe will bring a great amount of feelings of nostalgia that many people will appreciate, myself included. Steven Spielberg and the rest of the cast and crew created something special and a true classic!

Why Steven Spielberg should be director for Man Of Steel 2:

Over the years Steven Spielberg has written, directed, and produced many films that has had a long lasting effect on audiences across the world. Some of Spielberg’s most popular works include Catch Me If You Can, Jurassic Park, Minority Report, Indiana Jones Franchise, Jaws, E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial, and one of my personal favorites, War of the Worlds(2005). Many of these films have one way or another had a positive affect on generations of people and has caused many across the world to appreciate not just good storytelling, but also great cinema overall. Many actors and actresses today had their career changed due to some of his films.

Steven Spielberg has proven more than once that he can tackle a wide range of genres of film such as horror or thriller with Poltergeist and Jurassic Park, or science fiction with A.I. Artificial Intelligence, Minority Report, and War Of The Worlds. Seeing the effect these films have had on many people over the years proves that Spielberg is one of the best, if not the best man to direct a Superman film. Considering some of the changes that are happening with Warner Brothers and DC, this would not only be one of the best times for Warner Brothers to bring Spielberg on board, but also one of the best decisions Warner Brothers can make as well. In this article I’ll be going into a few reasons as to why Steven Spielberg directing a Superman’s film should happen and why it would be an amazing idea.

To start off:

He is great at world building and allowing the audience to feel immersed in the cinematic world he’s creating:

79b15167f4_1467118336_Laat-me-je-het-verhaal-vertellen-van-de-Tyrannosaurus-rex-alias-de-T_-rex

Many Of the films Spielberg has created such as Jurassic Park or War for the worlds are not only popular for their stories, but most of all the cinematic worlds that many audiences experienced and felt apart of when watching them. One of the reasons Jurassic Park is a classic amongst many is because it was the first of its kind that visually alone bought you into a world where for the time audiences that were watching it believed that dinosaurs were real. Viewers felt not only the shock of seeing dinosaurs in a grand epic way for the first time such as the iconic moment the Tyrannosaurus shows up on screen saving Dr.Alan, Dr. Ellie and her kids from the raptors, but also the fear of what could happen if dinosaurs were to be bought back in today’s world and if so how would we as people handle something like that. Another film that does something similar and is a personally favorite of mine is War Of the worlds. War Of the Worlds stars Tom Cruise as the lead playing the role of a father who tries to survive an alien invasion while at the same time trying to keep his children safe. There has been other versions of war of the worlds, but Spielberg’s version had such an epic horror element to it in the thought of an alien invasion happening out of the blue and how people would react when not prepared for an attack like the one displayed in this film. This film goes as far as showing audiences the breakdown of people when scared and what people can and are willing to do to survive during an attack like the one in this movie. Spielberg does a great job bringing all these elements together in one film that in the end creates an epic event that many fans came to love and appreciate in the end. Spielberg being able to create  cinematic worlds that people can immerse themselves in, is and should be a welcomed element to the DCEU that I think can make Warner Brothers and fans across the world very happy.

He knows how to create great characters that many people can grow attached to:

giphy (1)

Another element Steven Spielberg is able to do with all of his films is create characters people remember for years and grow attached to as well. One of the most popular iconic characters known across the world is Indiana Jones. Indiana Jones is a character many people love and grew up with, and has become a huge icon to many. The adventures Indiana Jones goes on in his films bring a level of excitement and mystery that many people wish they can experience themselves. Indiana Jones is relatable to so many because of how realistic he is in the fact that he’s not a superhero. Instead he’s just an adventurer who gets involved in many out of this world situations, and he has to go about getting out of these situations in real human ways. That core aspect of the character is what audiences have always loved and appreciated and is what makes him such a huge icon to so many fans. The possibility of Spielberg being able to continue Henry Cavill’s Superman from Justice League and staying true to the core elements of what makes Superman the greatest hero in comics is something that if done, would keep many fans pleased and very happy for many years to come.

He is a great director that can great stories that can have a long lasting positive affect on the audience:

tumblr_p0x70xRj2F1rfd7lko1_500

Lastly, the films Spielberg has made over the years have all become so popular to the public for not just the characters displayed on film but most importantly the stories each of these characters come from in the first place. The stories Spielberg has created for each his films is one of the main reasons many people have been able to immerse themselves in the worlds he creates. One of the best films Spielberg has created is Minority Report which takes place in the future of 2054 where a special police unit is able to predict and prevent crimes people are about to commit due to Precogs which are three human beings that can visualize crimes before they happen, and this film we see Chief John Anderton played by Tom Cruise go on the run trying to prove his innocence after being accused of a future murder he is said to commit. Another film popular and special to many people is E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial which is a story of a troubled child played by Henry Thomas who grows the courage to help an alien he befriends from the government and tries to help him escape earth and return him to his home planet. One of the reasons this film is so special to a lot of people is based on the fact that it brings a lot of heart to it that encourages the idea to many people to stand up for others and do the right thing regardless of the circumstances. This is a core element that is introduced in many stories involving the character Superman. Seeing Spielberg create a Superman film with a story that shows audiences the heart of who Superman is at his core and why a character like Superman has been an iconic inspiration to so many people for so many years is something that is both wanted and needed in the DC Film Universe.

Overall:

Steven Spielberg creating a Superman film that can give people hope and optimism and encourage people to have a much more positive outlook on life is an amazing thought, and I think it is an idea that Warner Brothers should at least take into consideration if no directors has signed on yet. Having Steven Spielberg work with Warner Brothers and being part of the DC film universe is something that both Warner Brothers and fans could only benefit from, and is an idea I hope does happen in the future.

I hope you all enjoyed this article as much as I had fun writing it. It was fun to go deep into the thought of what a Spielberg Superman film can be, and hopefully this article was able to inspire many of you to comment your own thoughts as well, and be sure to check out Steven Spielberg’s latest film Ready Player One.

John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein confirmed as directors for Flashpoint & what you can possibly expect for the upcoming film

John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein has officially closed their deal with Warner Brothers, and have now signed on officially as the directors for the upcoming film Flashpoint! Both John Daley and Jonathan Goldstein have previously expressed their excitement to bring their own take on the film and gave fans an idea of what to possibly expect for the upcoming film going forward.

Now that Flashpoint officially has directors on board, the film could possibly start production later this year. Until then, rumors and reports have been floating around about the possible villains and story we can expect to see adapted in this film such as:

The Rouges:

Rogues_0001

Earlier last week, Umberto Gonzalez of The Wrap revealed that The Rouges will be the main villains of the film. For many who don’t know, the Rouges consists of a group of criminals who ban together to cause havoc on Central City where Barry Allen resides. These group of villains consist of: Captain Cold, Heat Wave, Mirror Master, Abra Kadabra, Captain Boomerang, Golden Glider, Pied Piper, The Top, Trickster, and Weather Wizard. For many who already watch the Flash television series on The CW, will probably have a good idea of who these characters are already but for those that don’t know, Captain Cold usually acts as leader to the group as they not only commit crimes such as robbery, but also share one goal in mind which is to take down The Flash. Even though we have seen the group on television, I think seeing the group together on the big screen will have a bigger effect on new and old fans. The film will allow a bigger budget which means we can see the Rogues Gallery in full effect take on the flash in one big showdown that I’m sure will please both critics and fans everywhere. Let’s hope this group of characters make it to the film. It would be an epic thing to see for sure.

Reverse Flash:

250px-Reverse_Flash_(DC_Rebirth)

Professor Zoom otherwise known as Reverse Flash has also been rumored to appear in the film, but not as the main antagonist. Instead he will have a much smaller role in this film. Possibly the reason for this is because they might want to slowly build a story to him leading into another film where he might have a much bigger role. For those that don’t know, Reverse Flash is The Flash’s arch-nemesis and also a speedster. Pretty much the Joker to Flash’s Batman. He is also the man responsible for murdering Barry Allen’s mother which is the main reason why Barry becomes the Flash later on in his life. Reverse Flash comes from the 25th Century and comes back to the past cause havoc solely on Barry Allen by any means necessary. Some could even say he’s worse than the Joker because of the fact he has Barry’s same ability and he can warp and tear through time at any moment he chooses which makes him not only the Flash’s greatest foe, but also a villain even the Justice League as whole has problems with sometimes. If the rumors are true. Seeing a story that slowly builds to Reverse Flash’s appearance can be a great thing, because it leaves more room for more amazing stories to be told in possible future sequels. Seeing a tease of the character or a cliffhanger that reveals the character would be an epic thing to see especially on film giving the effects they can bring on the big screen.

Dr. Light:

Dr. Light is rumored to be the big bad of the film. Dr. Light otherwise known as Arthur Light is known to be a recurring enemy of both the Justice League and Teen Titans. He is able to manipulate light energy in various kinds of ways to use to his advantage. Such as creating solid images of himself that he can make explode on contact, force fields, invisibility, flight, and absorb light energy in any area. Seeing this character take the role as the main villain of the film will be interesting to see, and could be an epic challenge for the Flash to take on in the film.

Iris West:

Iris West is the love interest and eventually wife of Barry Allen. She is a journalist in Central City very much like Lois Lane. Unlike Lois Lane however, she has a long history with Barry allen from childhood. Joe West who is Iris’s father takes in barry as a son after the tragedy of Barry’s mother, and overtime Barry and Iris grow close and eventual lovers in the comics and television show.  She is known to be a strong, independent woman that acts as the moral compass for Barry Allen and helps steer him the right direction when ever he begins to lose his way. Kiersey Clemons is confirmed for the role of the character, and I have no doubt she will portray a great performance that many audiences will grow to love on the big screen.

Why you should be excited:

John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein just recently finished their last film Game Night, and I had the chance to view it opening weekend. The film is a dark comedy with a great cast lead by Jason Bateman and Rachel McAdams. The chemistry the entire cast shows in this film is on point and entertaining from beginning to end, and has a lot twists that are not predictable at all. It’s a fun film that I think everyone should go out and see. Seeing this film might not give you a complete idea of what to expect from Flashpoint, but it might give you an idea on the type of tone you might get from the upcoming film. Now that we have directors signed on to the project we can expect more news such as casting and story details to be revealed soon or possibly at San Diego Comic Con. Hopefully I was able to excite all you even more for this upcoming film, and if you want to read more about the film, check the links below.
