Robbie Amell Remains Super, Joins The Flash As Firestorm

20 hours ago | 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. 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, »

‘The Flash’ Gets Head Start With Online Leak

27 June 2014 1:40 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

It wasn’t due to air till October, but The CW has a potential disaster on its hands with a premature debut of The Flash pilot episode online, courtesy of some nefarious character. The second attempt to craft a show around the lightning fast superhero (and featuring original series star John Wesley Shipp in a supporting role), it has nevertheless received a positive verdict from those brave enough to watch it, with praise for its non-fanboy accessibility, special effects and main performance from Grant Gustin as Barry Allen. Uproxx commented:

Gustin has been the subject of some anxiety, but he works. Barry is a bit like ’60s-era Peter Parker here; nerdy, wanting to do the right thing, not entirely sure what the right thing is. The cast in general is pretty engaging, but Gustin is a good lead for this show.

Weaker aspects appear to relate to humour and the tying of continuity to Arrow, »

John Wesley Shipp talks The Flash

5 June 2014 5:45 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Chatting with Comic Book Therapy, John Wesley Shipp – star of the 1990s TV series The Flash – has been speaking about returning to the world of DC’s Scarlett Speedster, with the actor set to take on the role of Barry Allen’s father in The CW’s upcoming Arrow spin-off.

“They made an offer,” states Shipp when asked how the part came about. “They called my agent and said they wanted to talk. When I heard about it, people were saying ‘Jay Garrick! Jay Garrick! Jay Garrick!’ I thought ‘Yeah, I guess a mentor figure.’ I thought that was pretty limited. Then I heard about Geoff Johns reboot where he reimagined the Allen family and the fact that the father is imprisoned, convicted wrongfully, for killing his wife. I thought ‘Wait a minute! That’s the character! I don’t know what I can say without giving stuff away! All I can say, »

27 May 2014 11:35 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

We knew former Flash John Wesley Shipp was to cameo in the new series, but now he's playing a recurring character...

News

The 'blink and you'll miss them' cameo, perfected of course by Stan Lee, is a stalwart of comic book movies and shows. Writers, graphic artists, voice-over performers and actors with links to the source material have popped up in the background of multiple superhero scenes as Easter eggs for the eagle-eyed.

John Wesley Shipp's forthcoming appearance in The Flash, The CW's new Arrow spin-off, was originally advertised as just such a cameo, but now it's been announced he's going to be a much more frequent presence in the new series.

Shipp, who played the titular character in the 1990s Flash series, will portray Dr Henry Allen, father to Barry, and a key part of The Flash's origin story in the show. The Flash executive producer Greg Berlanti »
