Fans of 'The Flash' and his many forms took the upcoming CW spinoff's casting of 1990 CBS 'Flash' star John Wesley Shipp as a fun nod to its TV predecessor, but the coming DC drama has doubled down on the homage in a major way. Not only will original series star Amanda Pays guest on the CW's 'Flash' this fall, but she'll do so as her 1990 character Dr. Tina McGee!
We've always adored 'Arrow''s effort at crowd-pleasing casting, and it seems CW spinoff 'The Flash' has inherited the gift. Following 'Prison Break' alum Wentworth Miller's casting as Captain Cold, onscreen brother Dominic Purcell will also menace 'The Flash' as DC villain Heat Wave, reuniting the two stars.
Yesterday we learned that the CW's 'Arrow' had continued expanded its roster of DC rogues, and its spinoff series 'The Flash' certainly isn't trailing behind. Not only has the speedy new superhero drama added a 'Star-Crossed' alum as metallic villain Girder, but 'Sleepy Hollow' star (and former Lex Luthor!) Clancy Brown will play DC's General Wade Eiling.
We're still admittedly on the fence about 'Arrow''s upcoming 'The Flash' spinoff, even with favorable reactions from Comic-Con 2014, but we have to give it to the DC drama for swinging to the fences. In addition to a plethora of DC villains already lined up, 'The Flash''s first season has added 'Arrow' baddie Robert Knepper to reprise his role as The Clock King, along with yet another DC metahuman, and a stylish new trailer to wrap it all up in.

Comic-Con 2014 is just around the corner, which means lots of big announcements are on the way.

Now, new reports have emerged regarding WB's upcoming slate of comic book movies, including 'Justice League,' a 'Wonder Woman' solo movie, and a Green Lantern and Flash team-up.
