SDCC 2017 Trailer Review #2: The Flash Season 4

Bring me The Flash or else your city falls.

The Flash’s trailer for its fourth season was released at the 2017 San Diego Comic Con.

It shows the impact of Barry Allen/The Flash’s (Grant Gustin) absence on the lives of his family and friends in a completely different way.

The trailer begins with Iris West (Candice Patton) narrating her story to the viewers. She has decided to follow Barry’s advice to become strong and move on.

It’s particularly interesting because Iris has been used mostly as a plot device in the previous seasons. Her character has a lot of potential, and so this is a fresh start for the fans as well.

Returning to the series are Team Flash members Detective Joe West (Jesse L. Martin), Caitlin Snow/Killer Frost (Danielle Panabaker), Cisco Ramon/Vibe (Carlos Valdes) and Wally West/Kid Flash (Keiynan Lonsdale).

Joe and Cisco are not reacting well to Iris’s decision, and are surprised to see her constantly reminding them that Barry will never come back.

The trailer also shows us that the team is back in action. They are fighting meta humans in the city just like good old days.

Last season, Barry was forced to go into the speed force in order to save Central City.  So, it was only a matter of time before a villain, in this case a Samuroid, demanded that Barry be handed over to him or else Central City will fall.

The team decides to bring Barry back and offer him up to the villain. Towards the end, we see that Cisco and Caitlin have successfully created a device to force Barry out of the speed force.

It is not clear whether Samuroid is the big bad this season, but here’s hoping that the producers will not make the same mistakes as they did in season 3.

Season 4 of The Flash will premiere on October 10th at 8/7c on The CW.

SDCC 2017 Trailer Review #1: Westworld Season 2

This world doesn’t belong to them; it belongs to us.

HBO has released the first trailer for Westworld’s second season at the 2017 San Diego Comic Con.

The trailer is successful in putting an end to complaints and criticism regarding the show’s slow-moving storyline.

The trailer begins with the piano starting up just like it used to in the first season. Normally, the “hosts” would then come to life and the day would pass by until the piano stopped.

However, this time the music sheet is covered in blood.

All hell breaks loose once the trailer progresses. Season 1 followed the steady buildup to the robotic uprising that ultimately became a reality in the finale. And so, this time it is clear that the “hosts” are ready to fight back.

Returning to the series are fan favorite “hosts” Bernard Lowe (Jeffrey Wright), Dolores Abernathy/Wyatt (Evan Rachel Wood), Teddy Flood (James Marsden) and Maeve Millay (Thandie Newton).

One of the most entertaining elements of the trailer is the song “I’ve Gotta Be Me” playing in the background. Sammy Davis Jr. sings ‘I’ve gotta be free’ while Dolores and Teddy ride on horses, and shoot humans as if they were the “guests” in Westworld this time.

Having killed Dr. Robert Ford (Anthony Hopkins) in the season finale, Dolores’s face shows no sign of mercy for any “guest” coming in her way.

Chaos and violence is all that is left in the amusement park. Dead bodies are seen lying around; a man is tied upside down from a tree while trying to reach a gun. An unsettling promise that next season will disappoint anyone who is rooting for Team Humans.

Some of the park’s team including Lee Sizemore (Simon Quarterman) and Ashley Stubbs (Luke Hemsworth) also appear in the trailer.

The final shot shows the Man in the Black (Ed Harris) smiling smugly with blood splattered across his face.

Considering that the second season has only been under production since last week, all of the scenes are executed brilliantly.
