Hey Gang! Hope you all had a great week and are looking forward to an amazing weekend! News wise, it's felt a little slow around the Kronos workspace and by work space I mean my kitchen. However, today the Nerd Media Gods have delivered some truly amazing tidbits of what is to come!
For all The Flash fans out there, the CW has released a full trailer of the second season! In this new expanded trailer we catch a glimpse of new heroes and threats that will keep the Scarlett Speedster busy, including some dude named Zoom (Tony Todd). Sounds like that guy has a serious bee in his bonnet.
We're also expecting to see the return of Gorilla Grodd, Captain Cold and Golden Glider. We'll also see Patty Spivot (Shantel VanSanten) Jay Garrick (Teddy Sears) and Atom Smasher (Adam "Edge" Copeland)!
Also coming from the DC Universe, Warner Bros. has released the first full photo of Hawkman (Falk Hentschel) and Hawkgirl (Ciara Renee)from the upcoming series, Legends of Tomorrow! Hopefully we'll see the full wingspan soon.
For those that aren't familiar, this is all spinning out of Arrow and The Flash series. Hentschel is actually set to make his first appearance in a upcoming Arrow/Flash crossover! This is all designed to the road that takes us to Legends.
Here is the official synopsis from the CW: "When heroes alone are not enough… the world needs legends. Having seen the future, one he will desperately try to prevent from happening, time-traveling rogue Rip Hunter is tasked with assembling a disparate group of both heroes and villains to confront an unstoppable threat – one in which not only is the planet at stake, but all of time itself. Can this ragtag team defeat an immortal threat unlike anything they have ever known?"
Meanwhile over at Marvel, Mary Jane Watson, best known for her role in the Amazing Spider-Man canon, will joining the Invincinble Iron Man in his new on going by Brian Michael Bendis and Dave Marquez.
Details about how she factors into Tony's world or what she'll be doing there is still a mystery. In a interview with Marvel, Bendis explains: "They know each other," he explained. "She used to line in Avengers Tower. But that's all I'm going to say for now because what kind of relationship they end up having is a big part of what I would like people to buy the book for. But what I can tell you is that it is new territory for both Tony and Mary Jane. And that is pretty exciting to write."
So Bendis confirmed that they used to live together? He is making a reference to the J. Michael Straczynski run of Amazing Spider-Man, where Peter, MJ and Aunt May all lived with Tony write before the Civil War broke out. Guess that means that that portion of Marvel History survived after Secret Wars? Time will tell. We'll find out more when MJ arrives on the scene in the Invincible Iron Man issue 4.
Speaking of changing history, a new Back to the Future documentary will be released this October to celebrate the film's 30th anniversary! You can find it on Blu-ray/DVD when the the trilogy's anniversary edition is released October 21st!
