The year is in full swing, and movie lovers are eagerly anticipating the next big movie at the box-office.

Without wasting time, let me reiterate the movies to watch this February. This list is a nod to the list of anticipated for 2017. (Click here to see the list again.)

  1. Rings (Feb. 3)

This one’s for the lovers of the horror genre. It’s the third part of its franchise, but is designed to stand alone, to appeal to the horror of its audience. The film stars Matilda Lutz, Alex Roe, Johnny Galecki, Vincent D’Onofrio, Aimee Teegarden and Bonnie Morgan.

2. John Wick: Chapter Two (Feb. 10)

Next on the list is John Wick. After the impressive showdown that was the first chapter, I am really interested in seeing where the producers take John’s story to. Luckily, I won’t have to wait for too long to have a look.

3. Fifty shades darker (Feb. 10)

Another movie I cannot wait to watch. The weird dynamic between Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele’s relationship, I want to see explored further.

4. The Great Wall (Feb. 17)

This is one movie I feel will blow people’s minds away. Everything about it seems perfect. Awesome leads in Matt Damon (The Martian) and Pedro Paschal (Narcos). The box-office looks to be smiling on this movie.

Let me know what you think in the comment box.

Who is the Black Flash?

Who is the Black Flash? –  That’s the question on lots of people’s lips, especially as the Arrrowverse (The Flash, Arrow, Supergirl, Legends of Tomorrow) introduced the character  in the latest episode of DC’s Legends of Tomorrow (S02E10)
Many people remember the last ten minutes of The Flash second season finale with the defeat of Zoom by the Time-wraiths (those black demon-like entities that ripped and sucked him into the speed force.) That was the birth of the Black-Flash. Yes, Zoom became the Black-Flash.

 

The Black-Flash according to DC’s comic lore, is the grim-reaper of Speedsters in the multiverse, the living personification of death for those whose powers is as a direct consequence of the speed-force. That means, when Speedsters’ time are up, he comes for them.

The Black Flash has been reported to be seen before the death of some Speedsters in the comics. It is not clear whether The Black Flash exists because the speedster characters are simply too fast for traditional Death to capture, or as some sort of bizarre side effect to their connection to the Speed Force.

 

The Black-Flash made his first appearance in DC’s Legends of Tomorrow first, before it can appear in any other place in the multiverse, and the reason made total sense.

This season, the Legends have been dealing with the Legion of Doom at its ground state of formation. Members, Malcolm Merlyn / The Dark Archer (John Barrowman), Damien Darhk (Neal McDonough), Eobard Thawne / Reverse-Flash (Matt Letscher), have been a thorn in the Legends skins, causing time-aberrations everywhere.

In the latest episode (S02E10), Damien Darhk, and Malcom Merlyn set a trap when they couldn’t take Eobard’s secrecy anymore, and force him to tell his truth. That’s when he confessed that the Black-Flash is after him.

Do you remember, The Flash (So1E23) when Eddie Thawne killed himself to erase Eobard out of existence as a means of defeating him? Good. Now, this version of Reverse Flash (created through Flashpoint) has to keep running else, Eddie’s death will catch up to him in time through the Black Flash. This is the reason he’s after the Spear of Destiny – he wants to rewrite his destiny to get the deadly Black Flash off his back.

 

From the comics, some of the Black Flash’s powers include:

  • Speed Force Entity: As the aspect of death for speedsters, the Black Flash draws power from the extra-dimensional energy-field called the Speed Force.
  • Superhuman Speed: The Black Flash can move at vast superhuman speeds, easily keeping up with speedsters, and surpassing the speed of light.
  • Superhuman Durability
  • Superhuman Stamina
  • Superhuman Agility
  • Fatal Touch: The Black Flash can kill a person with only one touch.
  • Chronokinesis: The Black Flash possesses the ability to stop time at will, as well as use his speed to travel throughout time
  • Dimensional Travel: The Black Flash can easily travel to and from the Speed Force at will.
  • Immortality: As an aspect of death, the Black Flash cannot die by any ordinary means.
  • Claws

With these impressive abilities, I really want to see what the Black Flash brings to the Arrowverse.

PS: I just can’t seem to shake off this feeling that Wally West will die as a consequence of his new found speed.
