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, »

Arrow fans are already acquainted with Grant Gustin's Barry Allen, after he appeared in a pair of Season 2 episodes, but there are several other characters in The CW's Arrow spin-off The Flash who need a proper introduction.

‘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, »
