The CW's 'Arrow' will take a brief breather next Wednesday after the events of this week's "Deathstroke," but where the climax of the last installment saw Oliver deciding to take the fight to Slade, the first photos of "The Man Under the Hood" have the one-eyed warrior beating him to it. See who may not make it out of "The Man Under the Hood" alive, and what 'Flash' folk will be in town to lend a hand!
It's a tale as old as time, that Hollywood studios release full glamor shots of their suited superheroes just before set photos leak the look in a much less flattering light. So too is it with The CW's 'Arrow' spinoff 'The Flash,' which yesterday gave us a supercharged look at the Scarlet Speedster, before much more detailed photos of Grant Gustin's costume in broad daylight have emerged from the Vancouver set!
A few weeks ago, The CW's proposed 'Arrow' spinoff series 'The Flash' gave us a quick peek at Grant Gustin suited up as the fastest man alive, though we really only saw the costume from the neck up. Now the network has released a full shot of Barry Allen's new duds, and he looks ready to bolt!
A great many castings of The CW's forthcoming 'Arrow' spinoff 'The Flash,' has emerged, though we haven't yet got a pulse on the Scarlet Speedster's decidedly sci-fi new series. That all changes today, with our first look at former 'Glee' star Grant Gustin suited up in the 'Flash' costume, mask and all! Are you ready to meet the new Barry Allen?
Warner Bros. has been trying to bring the Justice League to the silver screen for some time, if only to compete against Marvel's 'The Avengers' franchise. Following Christopher Nolan's now-famous trilogy of Batman films, Zack Snyder stepped up to the plate and served up a rebooted take on the 'Man of Steel'. After that film's success, Snyder agreed to direct the follow-up, a still untitled 'Batman vs. Superman' movie, which will feature three of the most famous DC heroes of all time -- Superman (Henry Cavill), Batman (Ben Affleck) and Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) -- and will mark a major step into making 'Justice League' a reality.
But before that happens, Warner Bros. Animation recently released the latest the animated direct-to-DVD 'Justice League: War,' which unites the DC superhero team for an epic battle to save Earth from destruction, and may also serve as a dry run, for a live-action 'Justice League' movie.
Just when you thought 'The Flash''s TV future was all-but assured as an 'Arrow' spinoff, The CW has literally doubled down on its titular hero. The latest to join the scarlet speedster's 2014 TV updates is none other than TV's previous live-action 'Flash,' 1990 CBS star John Wesley Shipp! Of course, there couldn't be two Flashes at once...could there?
Earlier today we caught a bit of what-if information on The CW's 'Flash,' TV pilot, gauging the fate of Grant Gustin's Barry Allen should the network not move forward with the 'Arrow' spinoff, but in the meantime, 'The Flash' keeps right on casting. 'Ed' star Tom Cavanagh is the latest to sign onto the cast, but does his role have any major DC ties?
The CW's proposed 'Arrow' spinoff 'The Flash' has certainly come a long way with its casting process, though we won't know just yet if the network decides to follow through on a series order, or stop the project in its tracks. For as strong a track record as the network has win spinoffs however, what would become of Grant Gustin's Barry Allen if 'The Flash' ended up dead on arrival?
We're still no closer to knowing if 'Arrow''s forthcoming spinoff pilot for 'The Flash' will land its own CW series this fall, though its cast at least continues to fill out nicely. Up next for the DC drama is Candice Batton as the Flash's comic love interest, Iris West, along with Broadway star Carlos Valdes ('Once') as Cisco Ramon, otherwise known as "Vibe"!
We still don't know if 'Arrow''s 'The Flash' spinoff will be zooming onto The CW as its own series this fall, but its pilot supporting cast is at least picking up speed. 'The Vampire Diaries' star Rick Cosnett has joined the cast in a regular role speculated to be that of a major 'Flash' villain, along with Danielle Panabaker as someone with ties to the scarlet speedster's mysterious origins, and a villain in her own right!
