The Flash Trailer Has Great Production Value, Little Originality

27 August 2014 1:27 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

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, »

New 'The Flash' poster points to a larger DC superheroes TV universe

26 August 2014 2:11 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

"The Flash" makes quite a speedy impression in a new poster just released by the CW, which will being airing the "Arrow" spin-off this fall. The colorful poster -- posted to the show's official Facebook page -- features the DC Comics superhero (played by Grant Gustin) jetting through the city streets as fast as lightning. But super-fans will spend more time looking at the buildings in the images. They feature all sorts of fictional corporate logos which refer to other DC superheroes such as Blue Beetle, John Henry Irons/Steel and Green Arrow himself.  Check it out here: How many Easter Eggs can you spot? The network has already revealed that both Katana (played by Devon Aoki) and The Atom will appear on "Arrow" (played by former Superman Brandon Routh), so who knows which minor heroes will follow suit and pop up on The CW? "The Flash" also stars Danielle Panabaker, »

The Flash Poster Leaves a Mark and Kicks Off an Easter Egg Hunt

26 August 2014 11:42 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

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?

7 August 2014 7:56 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The second trailer for The CW’s The Flash has arrived and while it’s nothing compared to that five-minute extended edition we got back in May, it still offers a solid sense of what Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) is capable of.  It’s only 30 seconds long, but it still makes it abundantly clear that The Flash’s super speed is going to make for some seriously riveting visuals. Hit the jump to check out The Flash trailer for yourself and in case you missed it, we’ve also got an interview with executive producer and writer Andrew Kreisberg from San Diego Comic-Con up and running as well.  The Flash is due to premiere on Tuesday, October 7th at 8pm and also stars Jesse L.

The CW Network has released another trailer with brand new footage, showcasing Barry's incredible speed, which he uses to save a bicyclist from crashing into a taxi.

'The Flash' Will Introduce Girder as a Recurring Villain in Season 1

6 August 2014 10:12 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

As we get closer and closer to the series premiere of The CW's The Flash, the show keeps adding more villains that will test the World's Fastest Man, Barry Allen (Grant Gustin). TV Line reports that Tony Woodward, a.k.a. Girder, will make his debut on the show's sixth episode, although the role has not been cast yet.

Geoff Johns, who serves as executive producer on The Flash, created this character in the comics, which made his first appearance in 2001's Flash: Iron Heights. Tony Woodward is a steelworker who causes a a riot at his plant, which results in him being thrown in a vat of molten steel that has also been tainted with waste from S.T.A.R. Labs experiments. He emerges as a mass of iron who is only vulnerable to rust.

4 August 2014 7:25 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The CW has just released a new banner for their highly-anticipated series The Flash, which kicks off Tuesday, October 7 at 8 Pm Et with the Pilot episode.

Flash Comic-Con Promo Spot - Speed Trap

27 July 2014 11:30 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

The CW has debuted a great new promo for their upcoming Flash series that you can watch below. Make sure to keep your eyes peeled because it features a few fun Easter eggs that I think fans will enjoy.

The series comes from co-creators Greg Berlanti and Andrew Kreisberg, who wrote the pilot episode with Geoff Johns, which was helmed by Arrow pilot director David Nutter. I watched the first episode of Flash last night at Comic-Con, and it looks like the CW has another great superhero hit on their hands. I thought the characters were great, and I can tell that it's going to be a really entertaining show to watch. 

Grant Gustin stars as the hero, along with Candice Patton as Iris West, Jesse L. Martin as Iris’s father Detective West, Michelle Harrison as Barry’s mother Nora Allen, and many others, including John Wesley Shipp from »

Panel time! We've watched the "Gotham" and "Flash" pilots and seen hints from "Constantine" and "Arrow," including the reveal that Ra's al Ghul will be the Big Bad on Season 3. Geoff Johns is moderating and... Let's go! 10:05 p.m. The size of this panel is utterly insane. It's basically the full casts of All Four Shows. In rows. On the Hall H stage. 10:07 p.m. Angelica Celaya is the biggest panel surprise. She's the newest "Constantine" star and she started work yesterday. 10:08 p.m. "It's kinda crazy to see the universe represented like this," Johns says. 10:08 p.m. Where did "Gotham" come from and why start with the death of the Waynes, Johns asks.

The footage starts with a bored Central City cop doing a crossword puzzle while waiting for the next speeding car to pull over. This officer is in for the surprise of a lifetime when Barry decides to speed past his cruiser, clocking in at a whopping 760 miles per hour while breaking the sound barrier and giving this cop one hell of a scare. Take a look at the latest footage from the CW series, which debuts Tuesday, October 7 at 8 Pm Et.

Comic-Con TV Pilot Review/Recap: The Flash

24 July 2014 2:39 PM, PDT | FamousMonsters of Filmland | See recent Famous Monsters of Filmland news »

Director: David Nutter

Writers: Greg Berlanti, Geoff Johns, Andrew Kriesberg

Starring: Grant Gustin, Candice Patton, Rick Cosnett, Jesse L. Martin, John Wesley Shipp

Network: The CW

The CW has a thing. It’s a thing that a lot of people like, mind you: iconic characters played by ridiculously good looking people, interpersonal drama, cheesy voiceovers, and dialogue just slightly above groan-inducing. But hey, the formula works. It worked for Superman in Smallville, it worked for Oliver Queen in Arrow, and now fastest-man-alive Barry Allen is poised to join the fun in The Flash. And the pilot comes complete with a difficult childhood, dead/incarcerated parents, life-changing catastrophes, an affirmative climax, and a “Dun Dun” moment at the end to keep you watching.

These are not complaints, however. It’s a strong start, full of easter eggs (Grodd!) and classic comic-book inspired conflict. If it feels a little contrived, it’s »

Comic-Con fans review 'The Flash': 'I'm gonna start crying!'

24 July 2014 12:35 AM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

The CW may have another fan-pleasing DC Comics adaptation on its hands with The Flash. Reactions were largely positive at a screening of the show’s pilot at Comic-Con on Wednesday, especially from fans who have already been introduced to the new character on The CW’s Arrow.

Kat, 22, of Long Beach, Calif., told EW, “I thought, ‘I’m gonna start crying!’ Just from how awesome it was. It had a really good origin story, so I’m excited to see what happens next.”

She noted, however, that “it was a little bit more campy and corny than The Arrow. »

Producer Andrew Kreisberg Talks Arrow, The Flash, the Crossover Episodes, How the Two Shows Differ From One Another, and More

20 July 2014 12:01 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Viewers were introduced to Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) during Season 2 of the hit CW drama series Arrow, in a way that made the character both likeable and intriguing, and it was easy to see why he immediately got his own TV show.  With that drama series debuting on October 7th, he’ll get his own backstory and mythology and villains to fight, while also playing into the bigger DC universe and, at times, characters will cross back and forth between the two shows. While at The CW portion of the TCA Press Tour, executive producer/writer Andrew Kreisberg, who is working on both Arrow and The Flash, spoke to Collider for this exclusive interview about following a villain-of-the-week format while exploring the larger mythology and mythos, how the show will be lighter and funnier than Arrow, that they’re throwing every idea they have at this season while knowing there »

'The Flash' Casts Wentworth Miller as [Spoiler!]—Plus New Details on an Epic 'Arrow' Crossover

18 July 2014 1:00 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Are you ready for The CW's new "fast-paced" drama?

Fun Fact: As a kid, Grant Gustin, who has been tapped to play Barry Allen in the CW's upcoming superhero series The Flash, absolutely despised running.

"I was actually very fast as a kid, but ironically I hated running," the 24-year-old actor admitted to a room full of reporters at the TCA press tour Friday morning in La.

And although Gustin revealed that he "didn't know too, too much about Barry Allen" before taking on the role, he has now fully embraced the physical skills required in order to become the fastest man on earth and one of DC Comics most beloved characters.

For those unfamiliar with the way The Flash came to fruition on the network, it is a spin-off from The CW's other smash hit, Arrow. However, producers warn that The Flash is not just another superhero series.

Press tour: CW's 'The Flash' hits the ground running

18 July 2014 12:02 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Where Marvel has been running rings around DC with its cinematic superhero universe, DC in turn is having a bit moment on the small screen. The CW's "Arrow" has had two very strong seasons featuring not only Stephen Amell as Green Arrow, but lots of other major and minor DC characters like Black Canary, Deadshot, Bronze Tiger, and Deathstroke. And this fall, we'll have new DC-inspired shows on NBC (the supernatural saga "Constantine"), Fox (the Batman prequel "Gotham") and again on the CW, with "The Flash," spinning off from "Arrow" and developed by the "Arrow" creative team of Greg Berlanti and Andrew Kreisberg, along with DC executive and longtime "Flash" comic writer Geoff Johns. At press tour, Johns called "The Flash" "probably the most faithful DC Comics adaptation ever, as deep as we're going to go, and as many characters as we're using." The pilot episode — featuring Grant Gustin as »

Mike Gold: Television Is The New Comic Book

16 July 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

As comics and popular culture fans we’ve got a hell of a year ahead of us, and this time it’s in front of our friendly neighborhood teevee sets.

As you know, Arrow and Agents of Shield were picked up for their third and second seasons, respectively. DC has no less than three new shows on three different networks: The Flash on the CW, Constantine on NBC, and Gotham on Fox.

The pilots to Flash and Constantine have appeared courtesy of the usual suspects – except this time, I strongly believe The Flash pilot was leaked by Warners or the CW (note: the last time I paid attention, Warner Bros owned only about 45% of the CW) and I wouldn’t be at all surprised if the same was true about Constantine… which, by the way, was leaked right after we all had our chance to go nuts over The Flash. »

Robbie Amell Remains Super, Joins The Flash As Firestorm

9 July 2014 7:58 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Fans were shocked when the CW cancelled The Tomorrow People after only one season, but they can take some consolation in knowing that Robbie Amell will be returning the the network’s line-up this fall anyways, as he’s just been cast in the upcoming Arrow spin-off, The Flash, in a major recurring role.

“I’m so excited to join forces with Greg Berlanti and The CW again on The Flash. Being brought into the DC Universe is a dream, I can’t wait to get started,” said the actor.

Amell will be playing Ronnie Raymond, one half of the Marvel superhero team Firestorm in the highly anticipated new series. His character is set to debut in the third episode. Besides living a double life, he is also the fiance of Caitlin Snow (Danielle Panabaker), who fans met during the second of two Arrow/The Flash crossover episodes last spring. »

Warner Bros. reveals full San Diego Comic-Con schedule

8 July 2014 12:22 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With the San Diego Comic-Con International fast approaching, Warner Bros. has revealed its full schedule for the con, which includes movies such as The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, Mad Max: Fury Road, Jupiter Ascending, Into the Storm and Godzilla, as well as a range of TV shows including The Big Bang Theory, Supernatural, The Vampire Diaries, Arrow, Gotham, Constantine and The Flash. Oddly, there’s no mention of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, so if those rumours about a teaser trailer and a big DC Cinematic Universe announcement are true, WB must be trying its best to keep it a surprise. Check out the full press release here…

Warner Bros. Entertainment will plant its flag at Comic-Con International: San Diego this year with a huge presence, with each individual division touting its upcoming offerings, including Film, Television, Interactive and Home Entertainment, as well as a variety of product from DC Entertainment, »
