Ezra Miller revealed to EW that at least one piece of silver age Flash lore won’t make it over to the movie: Barry’s suit isn’t stored in a ring for easy costume changes:
Well, you know, look—I can confirm, spoiler alert, his suit does not pop out of his ring [in the movie]. Things have to progress, you know? Original Barry Allen was clearly an incredibly, incredibly clever scientist. We acknowledge and respect that. We want to apologize to the fans who are mad about the ring thing.
Speaking of the Flash, new image of Barry Allen in his computer-laden office has hit the web. Yes, Rick and Morty is still playing in the background. [Screen Rant]

Melissa Benoist revealed to Entertainment Weekly she’ll be getting a new suit this season:
There is a different suit that I will be wearing at some point this season, but I won’t tell you when or to what capacity. It’s cool, though.
In the same EW article, Jon Berthal stated The Punisher will refrain from supernatural elements, including The Hand, dragons, and superheroes in general.
We are stripping down every supernatural element. This show is different. It looks different. Frank is a character rooted in the most basic human emotions … He’s a comic-book character, but he doesn’t fly, he doesn’t have X-ray vision. He’s an unbelievably skilled soldier who’s been very, very angry and very, very hurt. In other words: The Punisher’s story will feature zero ninjas, zero members of the Hand, and definitely zero dragons.
Here’s the latest TV spot for season six.
