In the spirit of recent rumours and leaks of novelties in the DC Comics realm, we are taking a cue and tackling another DC superhero’s comeback.
With the fifth season of the globally successful CW-produced TV series The Flash coming to an end this May, it is time that we did a recap of what has been said and done so far. As a matter of fact, season number six is coming later this year, so we had better gear up building up to the speed of light.
Faster than a Bullet
When the TV show first came into existence, the protagonist hinted that he would be “searching for the impossible”. Now, five seasons later, and as the action progresses at lightning speed, we have seen a real spin on the original comics’ trope. Many a fan has discussed this twist in Flash’s family relations, but most have settled for one theory. Nora West-Allen is Iris and Barry’s daughter. Say what?!
If you have been sticking around for the past few months, this will likely come as no surprise to you. However, if you are like our buddy Barry Allen, the ending of the fourth revival of the show has had you gobsmacked. Nora (played by Jessica Parker Kennedy), Flash’s time-travelling daughter comes back from the future claiming to have made a “big, big mistake”. And like father, like daughter, she continues to do so.
The fifth series sees the happy family quarrel and makeup, with some serious blunders taking place that we can no longer call them just mistakes. The self-sufficient offspring is promoted to a speedster. And what happens when two trouble-makers unite? Double trouble.
Flash ships his daughter back to the future without talking the idea through with her mother, which, needless to say, cooks up some family drama, to say the least. Iris is outraged, and as life has us, this is just the beginning of the end. The atrocious Icicle returns and meddles in to create even more spine-tingling action that we cannot wait to see resolved.
And with the current season is boiling up and coming to a close, there is no reason to feel heartbroken or undone. In a rather energetic twist to the entire Flash plot, the leading global online gaming developer Playtech is meeting the post-season depression with quite a treat.
With the episode finale taking place on the 14th day of May, we expect you will suffer from a serious case of flashy nostalgia. Luckily for us all, a little over thirty days following the doom day, a slot embodiment of the notorious hero will see the light of day. It will be a 5×3 video slot rich in thematic symbols, electrifying special features and a high volatility accompanied with an RTP (Return to Player) of 96.14%. A comprehensive list of Playtech friendly casinos for South African players can be found here at one of the highest authority casino guide websites so we’re positive you will be able to find just the place to prolong the Flash fiesta until the show returns.
Becoming the Impossible
Along those lines, we are hearing through the grapevine that another impression of the traditional Flash will emerge.
In an interview with the Independent, Ezra Miller spoiled details on the short film starring yours truly announced for 2021. As much as we would love to see it as a feature-length film, we cannot contain our excitement at the exuberant and prolific actor’s tease.
“It’s better to have a good heart than fast legs,” was the last thing Barry’s mother said to him, and the maxim stuck with him to date. However, things have changed quite a bit for our favourite fighter, and he had to act accordingly. As per usual, Barry would not be Barry if he were not making plenty of mistakes along the way. Just like you and us, he is only human after all. A human being blessed with a stupefying power, but a human nevertheless.
And much akin Flash, you can strive to become a champion yourself. Who’s to say you cannot be a hero?
