I love how kooky The Flash is getting. The first season of The CW show didn’t have many reservations about introducing some of the weird stuff from DC’s Flash comics — there were Reverse-Flash and the giant telepathic Gorilla Grodd, which should be all you need to understand that the producers are happy to dive into everything the character represents in DC Comics.
And now, as we see in this new The Flash S2 trailer, the team appears to be going all-in for season two. There’s Jay Garrick, who in comics was the original Flash, created in the ’40s. In the show, he seems to be an alternate-world version of The Flash. And then there’s whatever villain shows up to cause trouble in Central City, not to mention whatever waits on the other side of that wormhole. Check out the footage after the jump.
Update: There’s now an extended version of this spot with twice as much footage — mostly, it’s longer takes and more glimpses at the same scenes, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t have a look!

The villain cast of The Flash is evolving, and now Tony Todd is part of the ensemble. But he’s playing an interesting role in the show, because at this point we won’t actually see his face on screen. We will hear his voice, however, and that’s not because he’s playing some mysterious new CG character. Get the news below; we’ve kept the specifics on the role played by Tony Todd in The Flash after the jump to prevent any potential spoilers. Read More »

Change is coming to Central City. Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) is getting a new costume for The Flash Season 2, as revealed today by The CW. Well, new-ish — the most notable thing about the new costume is the way it alludes to ancient history. Check out The Flash Season 2 suit after the jump. Read More »
Is Barry Allen drunk, or just a vigorous self-promoter? In this Flash poster for The CW’s new TV show, the hero is depicted running down a street in Central City. For some reason, he’s running in a zig-zag pattern that occasionally points him backwards. But whatever; the guy is so fast that he’ll still get where he’s going with time to spare.
And The Flash is meant to be fun, after all, so what’s a little time spent running just for fun? Speaking of, this poster is also decorated with a few little easter eggs. Some point to the series’ companion show, Arrow, while others hint at future developments for the series. You’ll need an even more high-res version to pick everything out, but get started via the one below. Read More »
The CW’s pilot for The Flash roars to life in a way that announces a show that has found its feet even before airing. Perhaps that’s because this is a spin-off from the increasingly popular Arrow, and The Flash inherits some of Arrow’s sensibility and DNA, despite being clearly intended as a brighter and more easy-going companion to that show.
This is a series that can experiment with all the overly “comic book” elements that have been part of Flash stories: the concept of super-speed; bad guys with names like Weather Wizard and Mirror Master; and time travel. As seen in this pilot, The Flash is a breezy bit of fun packed with indications that writer/producers Greg Berlanti, Andrew Kreisberg and Geoff Johns aren’t going to avoid the weirder bits of Flash history.

Thursday marks a pretty momentous occasion in the DC Universe. That’s the day the latest episode of Arrow premieres, with the first appearance of a major character in both the TV universe, and maybe the movie universe as well. We’re talking about Barry Allen, aka The Flash, who’ll have a two episode arc on Arrow starting with Thursday’s episode, The Scientist.
Like the grand comic book tradition of “first appearances” though, Allen (played by Grant Gustin) doesn’t show up fully formed as The Flash. He’s just a scientist investigating a crime. Watch a clip below. Read More »
Over the summer, it was revealed that Barry Allen, aka The Flash, was going to be introduced on the CW series Arrow. Grant Gustin was cast in the role and the plan was that after appearing in two episodes of Arrow, a later episode would highlight the Flash and serve as a “backdoor” pilot for the character.
Those plans have now changed. After seeing Gustin in his first two Arrow episodes, numbers 8 and 9 airing December 4 and 11, executives have decided the character will get his own pilot instead of it being disguised as an episode of Arrow.
Update: The image above is the first official still of Gustin as Barry Allen, as he appears int he December 4 episode of Arrow.
