‘The Flash’: John Wesley Shipp On Bringing His Original Costume Back

the-flash-john-wesley-shippJohn Wesley Shipp thinks there might be a chance we could see him suit up in his original costume on The Flash if the fans can get a movement going behind it.

Shipp said this at DragonCon, which Heroic Hollywood’s very own Jeff Grantz is covering this weekend. Here is his tweet with Shipp’s full quote:

Fans know that Shipp played The Scarlet Speedster in the 1990s television adaptation of The Flash. While we have seen Shipp suited up as Jay Garrick, the original Barry Allen costume from his first DC television turn has yet to make an appearance.

Seeing as Mark Hamill’s turn as The Trickster was brought back from the original series, perhaps a costume wouldn’t be such a hard thing to pull off? If you want to see it, be sure and get tweeting, and as always follow Heroic Hollywood for all the latest updates.

You can read the synopsis for The Flash season four below.

Running up against an evil time remnant version of yourself is something no one should ever have to do, but that’s exactly what faced Barry Allen (aka The Flash) as he fought to save the life of fiancée Iris West from the God of Speed known as Savitar. Barry’s victory was short-lived, however, as an unbalanced Speed Force began to wreak havoc on Central City, forcing Barry to sacrifice himself for the greater good. With The Fastest Man Alive now trapped inside an extra-dimensional energy, and unknown dangers lurking in the shadows, it will be up to Team Flash to free Barry from his own personal Hell.

The Flash Season 4 will premiere on October 10 at 8 pm ET/PT on The CW.

10 Heroes We Want To See In ‘Legends Of Tomorrow’ Season 3

Legends

**This article contains spoilers for the Legends of Tomorrow Season 2 finale.**

The Season 2 Finale for DC’s Legends of Tomorrow (check out my review if you haven’t already) certainly left things off on an interesting note. But now’s the time to look to the future. It’s time to look ahead to Season 3.

Legends showrunner Phil Klemmer recently teased new characters appearing in Season 3. That’s what’s great about this type of show is the ability to regularly swap team members in and out. It helps keep the show fresh. As Klemmer puts it, in this show, “the only thing that has to remain is the Waverider.” The DC universe is packed with awesome characters that would be perfect for an appearance in Legends and this show provides the unique opportunity to introduce DC superheroes and villains from any place and any time. Whether it be the past, as was the case with recurring characters like Jonah Hex or the Justice Society of America, or the future, as we saw with Connor Hawke in Season 1, this show can make it work. So, we thought it would be fun to take a look at some of the characters that could possibly appear on Legends of Tomorrow Season 3.

First, though, a couple of disclaimers. Some of these characters are more likely to actually appear on the show than others, but all of them could work with a little creative writing. Some of these people might have appeared in the Arrowverse before, but not on Legends of Tomorrow (for the most part). Some might make more sense in a one-off appearance while some could work as potential new season-long team members. Finally, I didn’t include any of the characters that are already appearing in the DCEU films.

So, without further adieu, here are the 10 heroes we want to see in Legends of Tomorrow Season 3. Hit the next button below to begin!
