In a week that's seen Bryan Cranston (Godzilla, Breaking Bad) confirming that he was never approached about the role of Lex Luthor for Batman vs. Superman, director Zack Snyder and his wife and producing partner Deborah Snyder have spoken about leaks, with Deborah stating that: "Things get leaked so often these days, it's a shame because even casing announcements, or whatever, you're in the middle of a process and sometimes they're so off base -- and then it gets picked up by multiple »

Filming might be underway, but The CW is still adding names to the cast of its pilot for The Flash, with The Hollywood Reporter revealing that Patrick Sabongui (300, Almost Human, Godzilla) has joined the Arrow spin-off in the role of Central City Police Captain David Singh.
The Flash pilot is being directed by David Nutter, and sees Grant Gustin (Glee) leading a cast that also inlcudes Candice Patton (The Game) as Iris West, Jesse L. Martin (Law & Order) as Detective West, Danielle Panabaker (Friday the 13th) as Caitlin Snow / Killer Frost, Rick Gosnett (The Vampire Diaries) as Eddie Thawne, Broadway star Carlos Valdes as Cisco Ramon / Vibe, Michelle Harrison (Emily Owens, MD) as Nora Allen, Tom Cavanagh (Ed) as Harrison Wells and original Flash star John Wesley Shipp in an as-yet-unrevealed mystery role.

Would it be the skin-tight muscle-job with lightning horns sported by John Wesley Shipp? Something shiny a la Adrianne Palicki's recent and much-criticised Wonder Woman get-up? A more relaxed sports take on the traditional red lycra?
Here's our answer, well, the shoulders-up part of it anyway (who knows what's going on beneath that neckline?). It's a leather-effect burgundy with flat lightning bolt ear symbols instead of sticky-out horns. Much more aerodynamic, that.

Recently, CW dropped the very first promo pic for their upcoming "The Flash" TV show that's set to debut this Fall 2014, and it features the first look at the Flash costume, head gear, warn by star, Grant Gustin.

Behold: A still of the Fastest Man Alive.
The first photo of Grant Gustin in the Flash costume in the CW’s “The Flash” pilot has been released. While the image doesn’t actually show him moving, it does show the detail work involved in designer Colleen Atwood’s costume (The Oscar winner also designed the costumes for counterpart program “Arrow”).
Production begins on “The Flash” pilot next week. It’s produced by Bonanza Productions in association with Berlanti Productions and Warner Bros. Television and is based on characters published by DC Comics. Joining Gustin in the cast are Jesse L. Martin, Carlos Valdes, Candice Patton and John Wesley Shipp, who played Barry Allen, the Flash’s alter ego, in the 1990s live-action CBS program.

Yes, there is a lightning bolt.
First impressions: Though there is a lightning bolt, there’s no protruding ear wings (thankfully) like in the original comic costume (see pics below). It’s traditional red, but not bright red; more subdued. The chin-guard seems handy, but might make it a little tougher to speak. Sort of Daredevil-esque. We’re told some of the costume is leather, which is »

Production is about to begin next week on the pilot for the CW's "Arrow" spin-off "The Flash," which means certain details are starting to come out. Today, we got our first look at what actor Grant Gustin will look like in a variation on the iconic DC Comics costume. The costume was designed by three-time Oscar winner Colleen Atwood, who already designed the costume Stephen Amell wears on "Arrow." It's only a head shot, so we don't know if the new suit will have sculpted muscles on it the way John Wesley Shipp's did on the late '80s CBS "Flash" series. But we can see that the suit appears to be made out of a tough leather (the better to help with wind resistance?), the famous lightning bolt earpiece looks to be a less obtrusive molded decoration, and the shade of red looks (at least in this lighting »

With production set to get underway next month, The CW has added another name to the cast of The Flash pilot, with Michelle Harrison (Emily Owens, MD) signing on to play Barry Allen's (Grant Gustin) mother Nora Allen in a guest star / recurring role.
Along with Gustin and Harrison, the cast for the David Nutter-directed Arrow spin-off is also set to include Candice Patton (The Game) as Iris West, Jesse L. Martin (Law & Order) as Iris' father Detective West, Danielle Panabaker (Friday the 13th) as Caitlin Snow / Killer Frost, Rick Gosnett (The Vampire Diaries) as Eddie Thawne, Broadway star Carlos Valdes as Cisco Ramon / Vibe, Tom Cavanagh (Ed) as Harrison Wells and original Flash star John Wesley Shipp in an as-yet-unrevealed role.

The CW is looking to get a little meta with its superhero pilot, Flash. While it may be a more gritty, realistic world than the comic books seem, that doesn’t mean the pilot can’t wink at its past. Grant Gustin will be playing Barry Allen/The Flash, but he won’t be the only character who will have played the superfast superhero. But I think I can guarantee he’s the only person who will be The Flash in the pilot. John Wesley Shipp, a Dawson’ s Creek alum, will be guest starring in the pilot, which is significant because he played The Flash in the 1990s CBS TV series.
According to THR, Shipp is going to be playing a mysterious character, whose details are being kept a dirty little secret. In the case Flash gets picked up to series, his role will become recurring. So what is »

R.I.P. Emmy-winning television pioneer and comedy legend Sid Caesar died Wednesday at his home in Beverly Hills. He was 91. Caesar was one of the most beloved entertainers in America during the '50s and one of TV's first true superstars thanks to the success of his 90-minute sketch comedy/variety program Your Show of Shows, which eschewed the vaudeville-influenced slapstick comedy of the day for absurdist sketches containing characters and situations. Legendary actor, comedian and producer Carl Reiner praised his good friend, calling him the "greatest sketch comedian-monologist that television ever produced" in an interview with Knx-am in Los Angeles, via Variety.

[Mild Arrow spoilers follow]
The CW has had great success with television series based on DC Comics title characters; first with Smallville, which ran for ten seasons (and was then continued in comic book form) and told the story of Clark Kent and his path toward becoming Superman; and now with Arrow, the series based on Green Arrow, starring Stephen Amell as Oliver Queen/Arrow. Next up, The Flash, which is a spin-off of Arrow. The Flash will star Grant Gustin as Barry Allen, who was introduced this season on Arrow, and was last seen returning to Central City and being injured in a freak accident in his police lab involving lightning.
The recent news is that John Wesley Shipp has been added to the roster, playing what is only being described as a mysterious person, but who will gradually become a more important part of the storyline. Shipp is remembered as having played »
It's been a busy week for DC casting on the small screen; we've heard that Ben McKenzie (Southland), Sean Pertwee (Dog Soldiers), Robin Lord Taylor (Another Earth), Zabryna Guevara (The Guilt Trip) and Erin Richards (Being Human) have all joined Fox's Gotham pilot [see here and here], while The CW added Tom Cavanagh (Ed) to the cast of The Flash [see here]. And now we've got another addition to the upcoming Arrow spin-off, with John Wesley Shipp - star of the 90s Flash series - joining the pilot in an-as-yet unrevealed recurring role.
Shipp becomes the latest name to join Grant Gustin's Barry Allen in The Flash pilot, with other names attached including Candice Patton (The Game) as Iris West, Jesse L. Martin (Law & Order) as Iris' father Detective West, Danielle Panabaker (Friday the 13th) as Caitlin Snow / Killer Frost, Rick Gosnett (The Vampire Diaries) as Eddie Thawne and Broadway star Carlos Valdes as Cisco Ramon / Vibe. »

TV Guide is breaking the news today that John Wesley Shipp, who was the original Flash in the 1990s television series, will be joining Greg Berlanti's Flash reboot. Shipp is set to play a recurring character if the series lasts past its first season, which the original Flash series was unsuccessful in doing. I watched an episode of the original Flash and hope this series will be a lot better than that. Who do you think Shipp will play in the series? »
