The Flash has unveiled a shocking relationship between Nora West-Allen (Jessica Parker Kennedy) and Cicada.
The Flash has been bringing wild, science-fiction adventures to Arrowverse fans since 2014. This current fifth season has introduced a new villain to the series, Cicada, played by Chris Klein. Tom Cavanagh’s Eobard Thawne has also had a presence in this season of The Flash thanks to his relationship with Jessica Parker Kennedy’s Nora West-Allen. According to the latest episode of the series, titled Memorabilia, it turns out that’s not the only villain that the speedster has a relationship with.
Jessica Parker Kennedy’s DC hero took it upon herself to go into the dreamland Inception-style to gain the upper hand on Cicada. After Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) and Iris West-Allen (Candice Patton) discovered that she had done this, the two then took their own adventure into Nora’s dreamscape. During their time here, they were able to see a future in which The Flash is dead but his victories live on in a museum.
According to a recent theory by CBR‘s Meagan Damore, it seems that The Flash could introduce two versions of Cicada during its run, all thanks to Nora. Damore points out that the double-Cicada theory comes into play when Barry and Iris learn that at some point in the future, the villain dissappears but then returns. A video in the museum also plays an intriguing clip that makes the theory seem even more accurate. During the dreamscape venture through the museum, the video reveals this about Cicada.
“Some were left to speculate that Cicada is not a man at all, but an immortal monster.”
The theory suggests that Cicada’s notoriety as an immortal could come from the villain’s neice, Grace, who intereacted with Jessica Parker Kennedy throughout the episode. It’s here that Grace turns from an innocent bystander to a legitimate antagonist to Kennedy’s speedster, setting up a potential future in which Grace seeks vengeance in the form of taking her uncle’s infamous moniker. Fans will have to wait and see what the future holds for Team Flash as the series progresses but this theory certainly doesn’t seem too far-fetched to actually be what The CW has planned for Arrowverse fans.
We’ll be sure to keep you updated on all news regarding the potential relationship between Jessica Parker Kennedy’s Nora West-Allen and the legacy of Cicada as soon as more information becomes available. Do you think the theory sounds plausible? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below!
Here is the synopsis for The Flash Season five:
Matching wits with The Thinker, who by season’s end had harnessed the powers of all twelve bus metas he created, stretched Team Flash to their limits, but with the help of some new allies, Barry Allen (aka The Flash) and company were able to put a stop to the Enlightenment and save Central City once again. However, with the arrival of Barry and Iris’ speedster daughter, Nora, who arrived from the future admitting to having made a “big mistake,” things are anything but status quo. Will parenthood be the challenge that finally slows The Flash down?
The series stars Grant Gustin as Barry Allen / Flash, Candice Patton as Iris West, Danielle Panabaker as Caitlin Snow / Killer Frost, Carlos Valdes as Cisco Ramon / Vibe, Tom Cavanagh as Harrison “Sherloque” Wells, Jesse L. Martin as Joe West, Danielle Nicolet as Cecile Horton, Hartley Sawyer as Ralph Dibny / Elongated Man, Jessica Parker Kennedy as Nora West-Allen, and Chris Klein as Cicada.
The Flash Season 5 returns March 5 on The CW.
Top Actors To Replace Ben Affleck In Matt Reeves’ ‘The Batman’
Ben Affleck is officially out as Batman and it's a pretty sad day.
Words cannot describe how sad I am to see Ben Affleck announce that he's no longer Batman. His Batman is why I do what I do. In Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, I fell in love with his comic book-accurate interpretation of the Caped Crusader. It was a breath of fresh air and it felt like we finally had the one true Batman.
Three years have quickly sped by and we're officially going to receive a new Batman for his next movie. Last night, Ben Affleck announced that he will not return as the Dark Knight in Matt Reeves' The Batman and now everyone's attention has moved towards wanting to know who the next Bruce Wayne will be. Matt Reeves is said to want an actor that's around 20 years younger than Affleck while Warner Bros. wants someone older. My guess is that Reeves wants a fresh start while the studio wants an older actor for crossover potential.
In this list, I will discuss the actors I think can replace Ben Affleck as Batman using the parameters that Matt Reeves and Warner Bros. want. Hit Next to see our picks to play the Batman.
Michael Fassbender is an X-Men alum and no stranger to comic book franchises. The actor has shown multiple levels of range and could definitely handle the Batman/Bruce Wayne personality. If they go with the older range for the next Dark Knight, then Fassbender is probably one of the best choices to take over the role.
Ben Barnes is out of a job after The Punisher season 2 and he's one of the best actors in that series. The second season tied up Barnes' arc on The Punisher and the actor has already told us that that he'd love to play the Caped Crusader. Barnes definitely has the pretty boy look going on for him and I wonder what his take on Bruce Wayne could be.
I've said this before and I'll say it again: Ryan Gosling needs to star in a superhero movie. I've always thought Gosling would make a great Batman. Every role that he's done has shown us his capability and he could crush it as Bruce Wayne.
Jon Hamm is my top choice for an older Batman. If Warner Bros. wants to cast an older actor for crossover potential, Jon Hamm is the studio's best bet. He has a similar look to Ben Affleck, and c'mon, the guy's look just screams Bruce Wayne.
Armie Hammer is 32 years old and was cast as the Caped Crusader in George Miller's Justice League: Mortal. That film will never see the light of day, but that doesn’t mean that Hammer doesn't deserve a second shot at being the Batman. He's charming, broody and will probably give his all for this role. Armie Hammer is a great option because he's young enough for Matt Reeves and Warner Bros. could work in a way for him to crossover with the rest of the DC Extended Universe.
Game of Thrones alum Richard Madden is my top choice to replace Ben Affleck as Batman. The actor is young, has the look and definitely has the acting chops to play the duality of Batman and Bruce Wayne. Madden just won the Golden Globe for Best Actor in a Television series for the BBC drama Bodyguard, so Warner Bros. may want to quickly snatch him up.
