Hot on the heels of yesterday’s poster reveal, The CW has released a new trailer for The Flash, their new series based on the DC Comics character of the same name. CW’s other superhero Arrow also makes a brief appearance which makes sense given the fact that this is essentially a spinoff of that show. The two series will actually crossover in Episode 8 of both shows’ upcoming seasons. While we got a teaser a few weeks back, today's look at the show features a lot more footage. I’m sort of underwhelmed by this trailer though. While it has some impressive production value, it also feels rote and generic. But make up your own mind! Hit the jump to check out The Flash trailer. The show stars Grant Gustin, Danielle Panabaker, Carlos Valdes, Jesse L. Martin, Candice Patton, Tom Cavanagh, Rick Cosnett, and John Wesley Shipp with Robbie Amell, »

As the premiere of The Flash draws closer, The CW has released a new poster for the Arrow spin-off show which sees Grant Gustin’s Scarlett Speedster racing through the streets of Central City… well, in a flash. Check it out…
“After a particle accelerator causes a freak storm, CSI Investigator Barry Allen is struck by lightning and falls into a coma. Months later he awakens with the power of super speed, granting him the ability to move through Central City like an unseen guardian angel. Though initially excited by his newfound powers, Barry is shocked to discover he is not the only “meta-human” who was created in the wake of the accelerator explosion – and not everyone is using their new powers for good. Barry partners with S.T.A.R. Labs and dedicates his life to protect the innocent. For now, only a few close friends and associates know »

The Emmys played out in traditional “let’s give it to whoever won last year” fashion last night, and so now it’s time to turn our attention to the upcoming 2014-15 TV season that’s just around the corner. The CW has released the very first The Flash poster for its anticipated series, which is of course based on the DC Comics character of the same name (who may also be getting the big screen treatment in 2016). The show is a spinoff of sorts of The CW’s other popular superhero show, Arrow, as the two series will inhabit the same universe—in fact a crossover is already planned for Episode 8 of both shows’ upcoming seasons. This debut poster certainly flaunts star Grant Gustin’s ability to move quickly while also offering keen-eyed fans more than a couple of Easter eggs. How many can you spot? Hit the jump »

With a little over six weeks to go before The Flash races onto our TV screens, The CW has dropped a brief new trailer for the Arrow spin-off, which you can check out after the official series description…

Back at the start of this month it was revealed that the DC villain Tony Woodward – a.k.a. Girder – would be making an appearance in The CW’s Arrow spin-off The Flash, and now Zap2It is reporting that Greg Finley (Star-Crossed, The Secret Life of the American Teenager) has secured the role of the Rogue.
According to the site, the S.T.A.R. Labs explosion that sees Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) gaining his powers also results in Woodward finding himself “with the ability to transform his skin into living metal. In the guise of Girder, Tony then goes on a crime spree that only Barry Allen may be able to stop. The connection between the two men doesn’t stop there, however. Back when they were kids, Tony was the bully who used to torment Barry.”
The Flash premieres on the CW on Tuesday October 7th, with »

Earlier this month, we learned that DC Comics supervillain Girder would be making his way to the upcoming CW series The Flash. Now, thanks to Zap2It, we know who will play him and just when he’ll go toe to toe with the scarlet speedster.
Former Star-Crossed and The Secret Life of the American Teenager actor Greg Finley will appear as Girder in episodes six and seven of the upcoming season. His alter-ego, Tony Woodward, is a former childhood bully of Barry Allen’s, and is granted the power of changing his skin into “living metal” after the S.T.A.R. Labs particle accelerator explodes – the same accelerator that gives Barry (and a number of Central City citizens) metahuman powers.
There’s no word yet on whether or not Girder will be one of the Rogues, a team of Flash villains who join forces to take the hero down. »

'Leonard Snart' aka 'Captain Cold' was created by writer John Broome and illustrator Carmine Infantino as the leader of the 'Rogues' and amortal enemy to 'Barry Allen' aka 'The Flash'.
Snart has no innate superhuman powers, relying on his 'cold guns' and instincts. Over the years Snart had modified his weapons to allow a variety of effects such as a cold beam that freezes anything it hits instantly, creating a cold field where people and objects literally stop in their tracks.
Cold uses this ability to slow down The Flash's movements, bathing his opponent in a wide beam of ice designed to freeze the skin.

"The Flash" New 52 Action Figure »
- Michael Stevens
We’re now 52 days away from the premiere of The Flash on the CW, a number that’s very near and dear to the folks over at DC Comics. In fact, they named their gigantic company-wide relaunch in 2011 “The New 52.” To celebrate the occasion, The CW released a new official image of series star Grant Gustin in costume as the titular scarlet speedster on Twitter…
This is a great shot of the costume (much better than the first, poorly Photoshopped images we got a few months back), that shows off a nice, clean look at Gustin as Barry Allen, as well as some of the detail of the Flash suit. As you can see, despite a few small touches and a leather material, the design itself is pretty close to the iconic comic book design.
What do you think of this shot of Gustin as the Flash? Are you a fan of the costume? »

“Love Is Strange” is one of the rare movies anchored by gay characters not defined by sex. The story is set in a post-gay-rights Manhattan where marriage is legal for George (Alfred Molina) and Ben (John Lithgow), longtime partners who get hitched in a local park, surrounded by their closest friends. To fund the $1.2 million drama, which Sony Pictures Classics will platform release Aug. 22, director Ira Sachs turned to his community for help. “I got financing from 25 individuals, the majority of whom were retired lesbian businesswomen,” says Sachs over lunch on a recent afternoon in the West Village. “They cared about the story, and believed it could speak to a wide audience.” Sachs says the backers have already turned a profit from worldwide distribution deals out of Sundance and Berlin.
If not for its unconventional financing, “Love Is Strange” might never have found its way to the big screen. While »

The fastest man alive is coming to our TV screens this fall as The CW dips further into the comic book superhero genre with The Flash, a spinoff from the already successful DC adaptation Arrow. The show will star Grant Gustin as assistant police forensic investigator Barry Allen, who gets a dose of superspeed after an unfortunate incident involving a particle accelerator – and thereafter, finds himself facing off against a newly-created generation of superpowered criminals.
Barry is being set up to have a very busy first season of The Flash, with characters like Captain Cold (Wentworth Miller), Plastique (Kelly Frye), Firestorm (Robbie Amell) and Girder all set to make appearances early on in ...

Clancy Brown, who starred in Fox's Sleepy Hollow last season, has signed on for a major recurring role in CW's The Flash as General Wade Elling, debuting in the show's fifth episode. It isn't known exactly how many episodes he will appear in during Season 1.
Last week, we reported that Kelly Frye has signed on to play Sgt. Bette Sans Souci, a.k.a. Plastique, a bomb disposal expert who was given the ability to turn anything she touches into a bomb, due to exposure from the same S.T.A.R. Labs incident that turned Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) into the World's Fastest Man. That report also indicated that, unlike her villainous origins in the comics, Plastique will become an ally to Barry, as she tries to evade government forces.

The time has come for a major Flash-Arrow crossover — and this one’s going to be a royal pain for Barry Allen.
