The Flash [TV] [201x]

yeah, since it worked out so well last time...

/film wrote:‘Flash’ Series Speeding to CW From ‘Arrow’ Team

One of the stark differences between Marvel and DC is that the latter is just as interested in launching heroes on TV as it is on the big screen. Marvel has its forays into TV, sure, but in the wake of the success of Smallville, DC has experimented with bringing Wonder Woman and Aquaman to the small screen, had a minor run with Birds of Prey and successfully launched the Green Arrow series, Arrow, on the CW.

Now the Arrow team is putting together Flash, a new series based around (surprise!) DC speedster hero the Flash.

Deadline reports that the plan is likely to involve an introduction of the Flash on an episode of Arrow, after which he’ll run to his own series.

Arrow co-creators Greg Berlanti and Andrew Kreisberg will write Flash with Geoff Johns, and director David Nutter is expected to direct the pilot, as he did with Arrow. Berlanti and Kreisberg are expected to be announced as showrunners when the CW formally announces the show, likely later today at its TCA presentation. We’ll have more details after that presentation.

The show will not have any relation to the short 1990 TV series, and we don’t know which iteration of the character will be featured.

In addition, Deadline reports that while a new Wonder Woman pilot script has been written and delivered, there’s no movement on the show now.

still... i do like arrow...

Interesting since all the reporting out of ComicCon was that a Flash feature film would follow the Superman/Batman thing.

That's because the former knows how to successfully translate their properties into films.

/film wrote:Grant Gustin of ‘Glee’ Is ‘The Flash’ for CW
Grant-Gustin-1.png

Arrow co-creators Greg Berlanti, Andrew Kreisberg and David Nutter are setting up The Flash as a possible new TV star for The CW, and they’ve found their Barry Allen. Grant Gustin of Glee will play the super-fast hero in three episodes of the next season of Arrow. He’ll have a two-part appearance in episodes eight and nine, and then the twentieth episode of the season will serve as a “back-door pilot” for the Flash show the network announced not long ago.

THR reports that Berlanti, Kreisberg and Geoff Johns of DC will write the three Flash episodes, and the possible show will serve as an origin story, similar to what was done with Arrow.

The two-part story early in the season will find Allen in Starling City, and the later episode will follow him to his own home.

The trade says,
Barry Allen is described a Central City assistant police forensic investigator who arrives in Starling to look into a series of unexplained robberies that may have a connection to a tragedy in his past. A comic book fan boy, Barry is obsessed with the Arrow unaware that working with Oliver and Felicity to solve the crime has brought him right into the dangerous world of the vigilante.

Like Arrow, the idea is to create a grounded and realistic (well, more realistic than some) version of the character.

DH wrote:CW Changes Its Plans For "The Flash"

The CW has changed its plans for its proposed standalone TV series based on the DC comics hero The Flash.

Actor Grant Gustin was originally slated to play the role in three episodes of the currently airing second season of "Arrow" - episodes 8, 9 and 20. Gustin would only appear as Barry Allen in the first two episodes, and then become The Flash in that last one which would have served as a backdoor pilot for "The Flash" series.

While the already shot episodes 8 & 9 remain unchanged, plans for episode 20 have been scrapped. Instead, The CW have opted to do a traditional standalone "The Flash" pilot which is where Gustin's character will slip into the red costume for the first time.

The decision was reportedly made after those first two episodes were watched by network brass who were extremely happy with the results. As a result, the standalone pilot allows the creators to flesh out the character and his environment more - while still linking the series to the "Arrow" universe via the earlier episodes.

The same creative team remains involved in the spin-off including "Arrow" co-creators Greg Berlanti and Andrew Kreisberg, series scribe Geoff Johns and director David Nutter.

Of course, this means the 20th episode of the second season of "Arrow" will now have to be redesigned and producers are expected to discuss their ideas for the episode with the network this coming week.

That just shows how fast he is. He has time to take the leisurely path.

I couldn't figure out why this seemed so familiar until I realized the pilot had leaked a couple of months ago and I'd already watched it. It was mostly forgettable then and it still kind of is. But I'll give them time as Arrow didn't really get good until the second season.

Yeah, emphasis on "for what it was." What it's shooting for is pretty played out at this point.

i have 4 episodes left from the first half of the season to watch. at this point, i am merely tolerating this show due to the mild cross-over with arrow. holy fuck is this show dumb. so many holes in every episode. everyone is completely ok with the fact that the main character is in love with the girl that is essentially his sister (foster sister, but from when they were very little, they grew up together), including his "father", her boyfriend, the research team, literally everyone. and everyone but the girl is aware. it's like a really bad smallville, and i say that with tongue firmly implanted in cheek.

It's been a little better since they came back from the break, but yeah, I pretty much just watch it because it's an extension of Arrow. I don't really have a problem with the fact that the girl is his foster sister since it's not biological, and
[Reveal] Spoiler:
he finally tells her how he feels at the midseason break so that all goes away anyway. A bit too easily actually, he tells her and then they just kind of decide to get over it and pretend things are normal between them. I guess the writers didn't really know where to go with it so they just decided not to.

finished this season finally - took twice as long as i had to also catch up on arrow and i was watching them in order to preserve the cross-overs. the show really found its footing in the back half. the time travel was handled well, the multiverse aspects were interesting. each character fell into their role very well. the hat from the '50's flash showing up through the wormhole at the end was a nice touch, as was future flash telling present flash "no no" when he finally did arrive at his mother's murder scene. very interested to see where this goes. oh, and firestorm was done very nicely as well, as nervous as i was about his appearance. a zillion times better than the previous incarnation attempt and the proximity to starling city is awesome.

It was a cool nod to Flashpoint, which makes me wonder if they're going to go anymore with that at some point.

Lol. Flashpoint was the story that set up the latest DC New 52 reboot of their universe. Barry went back in time to save his mother, which altered the timeline so badly that Thomas Wayne was alive and Batman, Wonder Woman and Aquaman were at war with either other destroying most of the human world in the process, Superman has been captured as a child by the government when he landed and imprisoned, and other changes. At the end (spoilers) he went back in time to prevent himself from altering the timeline, with a scene with his dying mother pretty similar to what the series did. Though in this case it created yet another new timeline, mostly the same as the original but slightly altered so DC could reboot again. Don't worry about it being too long to read, they did a pretty good DC Animated adaptation of it so you can knock it out in under 80 minutes. :)
