With production beginning on the "Arrow" spinoff, "The Flash," it's time to jump the gun and start wondering about how the two shows will relate when both are on the air. Will characters travel between Starling City and Central City? Will main characters Oliver Queen and Barry Allen visit some more?
That said, it's not likely that the two shows would meet much to begin with. "Everything is always on the table," Guggenheim tells Collider. "But we also all collectively feel like 'The Flash' needs to stand on its own two feet, now that it's gotten its launch from 'Arrow.'"
If crossovers aren't likely right away, when might they come? "We trust our instincts to know when is the right time, »
While fanboys find something new to debate about the Man of Steel sequel seemingly every week, they are singing ‘Kumbaya’ when it comes to CW’s TV versions of their comics, especially the adaptation of Green Arrow in the hit series, Arrow and it’s already been used to introduce TV viewers to a larger DC universe by launching a spinoff show, The Flash, whose pilot is currently in pre-production. It stars Grant Gustin (Glee, 90210) and produced by Greg Berlanti, Andrew Kreisberg and David Nutter, the team who brought us Arrow. DC Entertainment Chief Creative Officer and one of the modern-day writers who has a long and legendary run on the character, Geoff Johns is involved in co-writing the pilot with Berlanti and Kreisberg.

Here's your first look at the CW's new incarnation of the Flash. He looks pretty flashy! Grant Gustin, perhaps best known as Sebastian on Glee, stars as Barry Allen, the young scientist who winds up with the gift of super speed. The Flash is a companion piece to and spinoff of Arrow, the CW's other DC Comics–based show, and comes from executive producers Greg Berlanti, Andrew Kreisberg, and David Nutter. So far the network has only ordered a pilot, so don't let any Flash-oriented emotions overwhelm you just yet. »

Greg Berlanti, executive producer of "Arrow" and the "Flash" pilot, explains the differences between the two shows in an interview with Digital Spy. With the sci-fi feel, "The Flash" has the option of bringing in more characters with super powers -- whereas "Arrow" mostly keeps to a heightened reality.
"Barry [in 'The Flash'] is different from Oliver," Berlanti explains. "He's a man of science and has more of a sci-fi bent, whereas 'Arrow' has a bit more of a crime bent."
The differences in themes will also reflect the worldviews of Oliver and Barry. "Barry »

In a few short weeks, the "Arrow" spin-off "The Flash" will begin production with hopes for it to debut as its own series in the fall of 2014. We've heard some things from the "Arrow" team about what to expect from the sibling series, but in a recent interview, executive producer Greg Berlanti laid out the differences between the two series going forward. "Barry (Grant Gustin) is different from Oliver (Stephen Amell)," he told Digital Spy . "He's a man of science and has more of a sci-fi bent, whereas Arrow has a bit more of a crime bent... We often talk about how Oliver comes off like a pessimist, but deep down he's an optimist and has hope. Barry lost his mother »
With Arrow in its second season and only growing in popularity, the time is ripe for DC to capitalize and add to their burgeoning TV universe. Late last summer, it was announced Arrow producers Greg Berlanti and Marc Guggenheim were developing a new series for The CW based on The Flash, with the intention being to introduce him on Arrow season 2 before he appears in his own series next fall.
Barry Allen made his debut (played by Grant Gustin) in the Arrow season 2 two-episode arc – “The Scientist” and “Three Ghosts – and CW execs were so happy with it that they scrapped plans for a backdoor pilot and gave the ...

Sochi The 2014 Winter Olympics begin on Friday, yet Sochi, the "Russian Riviera," is far from being ready for the games. Despite the $51 billion investment, many of the hotel facilities for visiting journalists are incomplete and under-furnished. THR reports that everything from light bulbs and WiFi to door knobs and doors are missing from guest rooms and some buildings have no working elevators or running water. The visiting journalists are, of course, doing are doing what they do best: reporting the news. Scores of tweets and other social messages have gone out documenting the "horrors," including this one from Stacy St. Clair / @StacyStClair: My hotel has no water. If restored, the front desk says, "do not use on your face because it contains something very dangerous." #Sochi2014 — 7:02 Pm - 3 Feb 2014

The CW is powering through its pilot season, going out of its way to give three projects pilot orders. These specific three have been on pretty much everyone’s radar; particularly those of us who pay close attention to every little move the CW makes. There shouldn’t be any disappointment from anyone. If you are disappointed by the decision to go ahead with these pilots, just keep it to yourself and secretly hope they don’t make it to series.
First up, THR reported the CW is moving forward with Veronica Mars creator Rob Thomas’s iZombie. The project is based on characters created by Chris Robertson and Michael Allred and appearing in the Vertigo (a DC Comics imprint) comic book. iZombie is a supernatural crime procedural about a medical-student-turned-zombie who takes a job at a coroner’s office to gain access to the brains she needs in order to keep her humanity. »

The CW’s The Flash pilot has added two more to its cast. First up is Carlos Valdes, who will play mechanical engineering genius Cisco Ramon, better known as Vibe. Candice Patton has also been cast. She will play Iris West, Allen’s fast-talking, quick witted best friend who is also the daughter of Detective West, who serves as a surrogate father to Barry.
Created by Greg Berlanti and Andrew Kreisberg, the project tells the origin story of Barry Allen, aka The Flash, a Central City assistant police forensics investigator who arrives in Starling to look into a series of unexplained robberies that may have a connection to a tragedy in his past.

Broadway actor Carlos Valdes has signed on to play Cisco Ramon a.k.a. Vibe in The CW's Arrow spin-off The Flash. The news comes just hours after we reported that Candice Patton has joined the cast as Iris West.
We first reported on Vibe's possible inclusion in the pilot back in December, although the news was never confirmed until now. That report revealed that Vibe will fight crime in Central City alongside Barry Allen (Grant Gustin), and, if the pilot is picked up by The CW, he could become a series regular. In the DC Comics, Cisco Ramon was a mechanical engineer who was exposed to interdimensional forces that altered his DNA, giving him the ability to release powerful shockwaves. Vibe eventually became a member of the Justice League of America.
Valdes, who plays Andrej in the musical “Once,” joins Grant Gustin, Jesse L. Martin and Candice Patton in Warner Bros. Television’s potential “Arrow” spinoff from Greg Berlanti, Andrew Kreisberg and David Nutter. Berlanti and Kreisberg are also penning the script with DC Entertainment’s Geoff Johns and Nutter will direct.
Other CW pilots for this season include Rob Thomas and Diane Ruggiero’s “iZombie,” about a med student-turned-zombie forced to work in a coroner’s office, and “Jane the Virgin,” an adaptation of the Venezuelan telenovela “Juana La Virgen” about a young Latina who accidentally finds herself pregnant.
