WEREWOLF BY NIGHT TO APPEAR IN AN UPCOMING MARVEL STUDIOS PROJECT?08/25/19 @ 5:59 pm EST
In the newest episode of the Flash we got a spotlight on Caitlin Snow that was directed by Danielle Panabaker herself and she did well, especially for her first try. While the saga of the Snow family was a big part of the episode, most fans went in wanting to know what was going to happen after Barry took Nora back to her own time and left her there without talking to anyone on the team. That gets brought up right away, first with an argument between Barry and Iris and then him having to tell the rest of the team after Iris goes off angry.
The argument was very interesting in that both sides had valid points and both sides were coming from a place of emotion. Barry couldn’t trust Nora because her dealing with Thawne but that is fueled by his hatred of Thawne for the death of his mother. Iris is right that a decision like this should be made as a family or a team but her anger is really coming from the fact that she finally got Nora to stop hating her and is ignoring the threat the Thawne has presented in the past… including the death of Eddie Thawne, someone Iris loved. It feels like the writers may have conveniently forgotten about Eddie for the sake of the story.
Tom Cavanagh continues to play both Thawne and Sherloque with great depth. I wasn’t sure why they would make such a cartoony version of Wells for this season, but now it’s obvious as the character has become more serious he’s very different from Thawne where the Earth-2 Wells had similar traits and would not play well this season. The big surprise of the episode was Thawne showing Nora how to access the Negative Speed Force that he uses. She fails, but when Iris (with the help of Ralph) goes to the future to retrieve her, it triggers Nora’s anger at being abandoned by Barry and then she taps into the Negative Speed Force, and it has obviously affected her in a very bad way. Which we’ll see more of next week.
The other story involves the return of Icicle, Caitlin’s father Thomas, and her mother Carla. Icicle brakes into Tannhauser Labs and steals a cryo-device. Later he returns and kidnaps Caitlin and Carla with plans to give Carla an ice personality and to bring Killer Frost out permanently. Though the mother and daughter usually fight, they find common ground for a bit and Caitlin tricks Icicle into setting her free as he uses the device on Carla. Killer Frost interrupts him and gives chase when he runs while Flash arrives to save Carla. Icicle and Frost fight with Icicle getting the upper hand, but when he goes to kill Caitlin, Thomas pushes through and takes over his body. They go back and we see everyone is safe… until Cicada II pops up to steal the device and Thomas sacrifices himself to save Caitlin / Frost.
The episode ends with Barry and Iris talking it out and Iris admitting that it seems like Thawne generally cares about Nora. Caitlin and Carla have gotten closer, but we see that Carla has now become a meta thanks to Icicle. We find out the Cicada II has kidnapped her younger self and seems to have plans for the device. And Nora returns with the red eye glow that Thawne usually has.
Other things to note in the episode is the continuation of the character shell-game they’ve been doing this season where one of them is off doing something else. This week it was Cisco who was off talking to Breacher about ways to track Cicada. Carlos Valdes has not been in the last few episodes and the rumors of him leaving the series continue. Plus the plot for next week says “Cisco makes a bold decision”, so don’t be surprised if it’s a farewell episode.

Geeks WorldWideD23: 'BLACK MIRROR' STAR WYATT RUSSELL WILL PLAY U.S. AGENT IN 'FALCON & THE WINTER SOLDIER'08/25/19 @ 5:49 pm EST
is reporting that Marvel’s classic shape-shifting anti-hero Werewolf by Night, aka Jack Russell, will soon make his debut in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
The site's sources weren’t clear on where Werewolf will first appear, but the freshly-announced Disney+ Moon Knight
series is a possibility since Moon Knight made his comics debut in Werewolf by Night
#32 and they have had strong ties ever since.
Werewolf also has major connections to Blade and Dracula, and with the former due to get his own solo MCU film soon, it wouldn’t be shocking to see him show up there.
GWW also reports a spin-off for Werewolf is a possibility, but whether as a TV series or film is unknown.

MCU Exchange‘MARVEL’S AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D.’ UNLEASHES FINAL SEASON TRAILER08/25/19 @ 5:42 pm EST
reports that Sam Wilson and Bucky Barnes will soon face a threat unlike any other in their upcoming Disney+ series The Falcon & the Winter Soldier
in the form of John Walker aka the U.S. Agent. Black Mirror
star and Kurt Russell‘s son Wyatt Russell will play the not-so-evil version of Captain America.
This isn’t the first time we’ve heard of U.S. Agent possibly appearing in the MCU. Just a few weeks back, a leak surfaced online saying that the character would appear in this very show.
This confirmation gives us an indication of just what the story might be. In the wake of Cap’s relinquishing of the shield and mantle formerly owned by the government, the powers that be are likely not too happy that they weren’t consulted on the matter. Their response? To create another Cap in their image.

COMEDIAN STEVE AGEE JOINING JAMES GUNN'S 'SUICIDE SQUAD' GANG08/24/19 @ 3:51 pm EST
The cast of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker
received a standing ovation as they took the stage at D23 in Anaheim Saturday. Filmmaker J.J. Abrams said the team was hard at work on a new trailer, but weren't quite ready, so they showed off a sizzle reel.
The footage included a fleet of dozens of star destroyers in the atmosphere of a planet. Rey (Daisey Ridley) and Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) appeared in a later scene, fighting on a downed ship in the middle of the ocean as waves crashed around them. The biggest crowd pleasing shot occurred at the end of the reel, with Rey wearing a dark hood, sporting a double lightsaber. The footage hasn't been released online.
The presentation also gave a first look at Keri Russell's mysterious character, who sports a helmet and a red suit. "She’s very cool and a little bit shady. She’s kind of a criminal, and an old friend of Poe’s," Russell said.
Oscar Isaac, who plays Poe, pretended to comfort his co-star John Boyega. (Online, fans have expressed a desire for the two to have a romantic relationship.) “We were young. Everyone was experimenting," said Isaac to Boyega, who pretended to be upset.
Abrams also spoke about the late Carrie Fisher, who will appear as Leia one last time via unused footage he shot while directing 2015's The Force Awakens
. He initially was not on board to direct Rise of Skywalker
, and after her death he noted she had thanked him in her 2016 book The Princess Diarist
for putting up with her "twice" as director. Abrams noted it must have been an intentional joke, as they had only worked together once. (via THR
