The Flash- Tony Todd Cast as the Voice of Zoom in The Flash Season 2

EGP Website Article Image 57

Actor Tony Todd has been cast as the voice of Zoom in the second season of The Flash.

Todd, best-known as the title character in the Candyman film series among many other roles, will first appear as the voice of Zoom in the second episode of the season which is titled- “The Flash of Two Worlds”.

Executive producer Andrew Kreisberg had the following to say on the casting:

“Last year, with the Reverse-Flash, we just modulated Tom Cavanagh’s voice, and this year we wanted to do something a little bit different. Part of the mystery of the season is who or what is underneath the Zoom outfit, and so we wanted to do something like James Earl Jones as Darth Vader — this iconic voice coming out of this mask. Last year, we thought of the Reverse-Flash as a speed warrior; this year, Zoom is like a speed demon, and no one does demon-voice better than Tony Todd.”

The comparison to Darth Vader is very interesting as this confirms that Tony is definitely only the voice of the character. Another actor will be playing the character in the suit (much like Dave Prowse was in the Darth Vader suit).

For anyone unfamiliar with the character of Zoom, Kreisberg said the following to describe the character:

“For us, the best villains are the ones who don’t have megalomaniacal ‘I want to rule the world’ motivations. Last year, the Reverse-Flash had a very simple goal which was, ‘I just want to go home, and if people need to die or cities need to get wasted for me to get that, so be it.’ And Zoom has a very similar, personal goal this season- simple and easy to understand, and very primal. And just as with Wells last year, Zoom doesn’t care who gets hurt or what gets destroyed in the service of him getting his goal.”

“We have to service the entire audience, both the fans and the non-fans, and I think we’ve shown up until this point a great deal of respect and reverence for the source material, so that we always feel like we’re fulfilling the comic book fans’ expectations while also not spoon-feeding them stuff directly from the comics. So the story of Zoom and who and what he is- hopefully comic book fans will be happy because we’ve come up with a clever way to spin the tale, but that also makes it exciting for the people who aren’t as familiar with the comics and are just enjoying the show on its own terms.”

The Flash Season 2 premiers on October 6th.

Rumour- Details on How Iron Man Helps Spider-Man in Captain America Civil War

EGP Website Article Image 55

Readers of the Civil War comic series know how significant Tony Stark and Peter Parker’s relationship was, with Spider-Man starting off on Iron Man’s side in the conflict. As a result of joining The Avengers, there were numerous perks for Peter (including an apartment in Avengers Tower and learning under Tony Stark). However, the most notable contribution Stark did for Peter was to give him a new armoured suit.

While we may (or may not) see the suit adapted into the Captain America: Civil War movie, a new rumour has been released on what we could see Tony Stark give to Peter Parker instead.

Potential spoilers for Captain America: Civil War follow so this is your SPOILER alert warning.


The rumour suggests that instead of building an armoured suit, Tony Stark will design the web shooters that Spider-Man uses.

“When we first meet young Spider-Man, Peter Parker will be a hero using only things a teenager has access to while Stark has the capability of making more “hero ready” suits (he has a line about making the Avengers “look cool” in Age of Ultron).”

Captain America: Civil War is released May 6th, 2016.

Ghostbusters- Bill Murray Reveals Why he Did a Cameo in the Ghostbusters Reboot

EGP Website Article Image 54

Bill Murray may have played Dr. Peter Venkman in the original Ghostbusters films, but he has passed on doing a Ghostbusters 3 for a long time. Therefore, it should come as a surprise to a lot of people that Bill opened up about appearing as a cameo in the upcoming Ghostbusters reboot and why he agreed to make a cameo.

“You know, they were incredibly nice to ask me, and I really enjoyed being there.  They have such a jolly group, and they are going to have great success with this project. I didn’t want to overshadow [them] or anything, and I feel really good about it. “I like those girls a lot. I mean, I really do. They are tough to say no to. And Paul is a real nice fellow.”

As well as feeling that the cast and crew were very nice to ask him to appear in the reboot, Bill had another reason for wanting to appear in the reboot. The reason was because he didn’t want reviewers or audiences to act negatively towards the film if the older cast didn’t appear to approve of the film:

“I thought about it for a very long time. Like, many, many months. No, that’s not right. I was seriously thinking about this for years, really. It kept eating at me, and I really respect those girls. And then I started to feel like if I didn’t do this movie, maybe somebody would write a bad review or something, thinking there was some sort of disapproval [on my part].”

The Ghostbusters reboot is released on July 15th, 2016.

Thoughts on Bill’s reason? Are you looking forward to seeing his cameo in the Ghostbusters reboot?

Supergirl- First Look at Jenna Dewan-Tatum as Lucy Lane

EGP Website Article Image 53

Much like Jenna Dewan-Tatum isn’t as well-known as her spouse Channing Tatum, Lucy Lane isn’t as well-known as her older sister Lois Lane. However, you can expect both to become a lot more well-known because of the Supergirl series and the first look at Jenna as Lucy Lane has been released.

Lucy will be a regular recurring character in Supergirl, with her first appearance coming several episodes into the first season of the show.

Lucy will reportedly befuddle the romance that is stirring between Supergirl and Jimmy Olson.

Executive producer Ali Adler had the following to say on the character:

“We hope to explore the history that Lucy has with James Olsen—or, as Lucy knows him, Jimmy Olsen. I think we’re going to bring in her father. She not only plays a romantic foil with whatever Kara and James are brewing, but people will also be surprised that she’s really a woman’s woman. She and Kara develop their own friendship, too. We’re not just bringing her in to purposefully create tension. She serves a larger story drive.”

The Supergirl series premiers October 26th on CBS.

Thoughts on the first look at Jenna as Lucy Lane? Are you excited to see her as a regular recurring character in Supergirl?

The Flash- Iris West to Take On Leadership Role in Season 2

EGP Website Article Image 47

Iris West may have been the character kept in the dark for most of the first season, but she’s going to step into the light in a big way in Season 2. The death of Eddie and the strained relationship with Barry has left many fans wondering what we can expect from Iris coming up and now we have an idea.

Entertainment Weekly featured a quote from executive producer Andrew Kreisberg, who had the following to say on what’s coming up for Candice Patton’s character:

“Iris slides into the role very naturally. She’s a born leader. One of the best things in the premiere is Barry decides that he wants to work alone because he doesn’t want to risk anyone else’s lives, and Iris is really the one who gets the band back together again. She’s the only one who can stand up to Barry.”

So as Andrew’s quote basically reveals, Iris will essentially be filling the role of “team leader” that was once filled by Harrison Wells/Eobard Thawne.

Thoughts on this news? Are you excited to see Iris West in her new role in The Flash Season 2?

The Flash Season 2 officially begins airing on October 6th.
