DC’s Arrowverse Faces Armageddon in Its New Crossover Trailer

The Flash: Armageddon First Trailer for New Crossover Event

Together they’ll take on Despero (played by Tony Curran, who you might remember best as Vincent Van Gogh in that great Doctor Who episode), an alien warlord who gives the Flash seven days to… defeat him? Save the planet? Kind of the same thing, I guess. Complicating matters will be the return of fan-favorite villains Eobard Thawne aka the Reverse Flash (the Tom Cavanagh version) and Damien Darhk (the always wonderful Neal McDonough) who you wouldn’t necessarily think would be pro-destruction of all life on Earth, but you can never really know with those guys, can you?

Honestly, I was not excited at the idea of another DC/CW crossover after Crisis on Infinite Earths—like, how could they top it?—but this does look like a lot of fun. And it will be cool to see this motley team figure out how to save the world without Supergirl or Oliver Queen’s Green Arrow holding their hands. It should feel like something new and fresh, at least, which The Flash desperately needs even if the other series don’t.

The five-episode Armageddon begins in The Flash’s season premiere, which will air on November 16.

The Flash Movie Teases Our Entry Into the DC Multiverse

The Flash Movie—Tease, New Details Revealed at DC Fandome 2021

While we’ve long known that the movie was set to bring together two iconic cinematic Batmen together, Miller and the rest of the crew are staying quiet on just what other multiversal shenanigans we can expect, but there have been rumors of visits to the classic Batcave (and Keaton’s old Batmobile), and of course, the arrival of Sasha Calle as Kara Zor-El, Supergirl, before her own adventures in the DC multiverse. A lot of set up is resting on Barry’s shoulders, as is a slick new suit first teased earlier this year.

The Flash, written by Batgirl and Birds of Prey’s Christina Hodson, also stars Ron Livingston as Barry’s father, Henry Allen (replacing Justice League’s Billy Crudup), Zack Snyders Justice League’s Kiersey Clemons as Iris West, Maribel Verdú as Nora Allen, and Rudy Mancuso in an undisclosed role. It’s currently set to hit theaters on November 4, 2022.

Locke & Key Season 2 Might Be Bloodier Than Its Fictional Slasher Movie

Locke and Key Splattering Movie Trailer and Season 2 Clip

Yeah, the trailer for the film within the TV show turns into a stealth clip for Locke & Key’s second season, and it’s a doozy. It turns out the villainous Dodge, who the Locke kids thought they’d defeated at the end of season one but is currently masquerading as Gabe (Griffin Gluck) and Eden (Hallea Jones) are among those watching the trailer. But being shot with a demon bullet clearly has some residual effects for poor Eden including 1) hunger and 2) a gleeful willingness to murder sleazy assholes who comment on women’s appearances.

What’s shocking about this scene—even more shocking than learning the Savinis managed to get ahold of a flamethrower for The Splattering—is how gruesomely violent this scene is. Sure, Locke & Key is a horror-suspense series but this is some straight-up gore, a new dimension (pun not intended) for the show to dabble in. It’s also worth noting that Eden is just sitting behind the snack counter at an extremely crowded theater, covered in blood, without a care in the world. This utter disregard for staying under the radar will presumably be a major problem for the good guys and bad guys alike.

Based on the comics by Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodríguez, Locke & Key’s second season premieres on October 22, just a hair over a week away. It must be pretty good, since Netflix has already ordered season three!

Locke & Key Season 2’s New Trailer Spellbinds Us Into a Darker Tale

Locke and Key Season 2 Trailer Teases Dark New Chapter

But Dodge isn’t the only trouble the Locke kids are going to have to deal with, as they grapple with embracing their destiny as a new generation of Keepers of the Keys. With that comes the perpetual time bomb that one day they will grow older—and lose all knowledge of the existence of magic, and the threats that they’re currently keeping at bay, and currently hiding from their mother Nina (Darby Stanchfield).

“The first season, we always thought of as being the story of the kids learning that they’re the new Keepers of the Keys. With season two, we want to explore what that responsibility means,” co-showrunner Meredith Averill previously teased to io9 when asked about season two. “What does it mean as they get closer to being 18 years old—the age when you age out of magic—what does that mean? What does that look like? We cover so much of the comics in the first season, but there’s so much of the lore that we held back on and new keys we created for the show that we’re excited to share.”

Locke & Key returns to Netflix on October 22.

Locke & Key’s First Season 2 Trailer Unlocks New Doors and Teases More Magic

Locke & Key Netflix: First Season 2 Trailer

Locke & Key’s co-showrunner Meredith Averill has teased that the show’s second season will see the Locke’s embracing their status as the latest Keepers of the Keys and also grappling with the reality that they’re all growing up and quickly approaching the age when they, like all adults, will forget about magic. The trailer’s dark tone, and the implication that Dodge means to kill many more people in their pursuit of evil, definitely points to the new season making good on Averill’s word, but what remains to be seen is whether the narrative changes to the story will hold up in the end.

Locke & Key also stars Darby Stanchfield, Aaron Ashmore, and Sherri Saum. The show’s second season hits Netflix on October 22.

From

According to Deadline, Shaun Majumder, Avery Konrad, Hannah Cheramy, Simon Webster, Ricky He, Chloe Van Landschoot and Pegah Ghafoori have joined the cast of From, a “contemporary sci-fi/horror series” about “a nightmarish town in Middle America that traps all those who enter.” Cheramy will play Julie Matthews, “the daughter of Jim (Eion Bailey) and Tabitha Matthews (Sandino Moreno)“ and sister of Webster’s character, Ethan.

The story follows “an apparently amnesiac young girl whose alarmingly inhuman needs and abilities lead her to a startling conclusion: She is in fact a genetically modified, 53-year-old vampire.

Stargirl

At a recent press event covered by Comic Book, Geoff Johns stated John Wesley-Shipp’s upcoming appearance as Jay Garrick “opens up the door” for future Flash crossovers on Stargirl.

I grew up watching The Flash TV show, he was my favorite superhero when I was a kid and I was blown away by John Wesley Shipp when he played The Flash and then was lucky enough to work with him on The Flash. And when he started playing Jay Garrick and we introduce our version of the Justice Society and we’re on earth-2 like the comics, we’re on our own Earth separate from the rest of these shows, but to have John play Jay Garrick The Flash in Stargirl, it connects our universe directly with the other shows and also shows that we’re part of a grander universe. And it opens up the door to opportunities for us to eventually interact with those characters. And that was important, just like the comics, and when we do do it, we’ll do it in a hopefully very special Stargirl way.
