This past week during the Television Critics Association Press Tour, Geoff Johns, the executive producer of the new CW superhero series The Flash said that this series, following the weekly adventures of the Scarlet Speedster, would be the most faithful DC Comics-based TV show yet. Well, it wouldn’t be a faithful Flash series without his colorful rogues gallery, so the latest casting news from the show starts to fill out those ranks very early on the series. So who’s coming to take on The Flash? Let’s just say he’s about to put a freeze on Central City. He’s going to make the citizens chill out, and despite the best efforts of the police, they’re not going to put him in the cooler… Sorry. I’ve got a million of these.  (more…)

I know, with a nickname like “Detective Pretty Boy” we could be talking about any number of male characters in any one of the CW’s series. In this case though, the reference is specifically for a key character in the upcoming superhero series The Flash, and for the discerning comic book fan, you just might be a tad surprised when you find out who “Detective Pretty Boy” refers to. Hint: he might not end up being one of the Scarlet Speedsters friends… (more…)

The first teaser trailer for The CW’s The Flash series has just hit. The teaser is titled “Don’t Blink”, and they’re  not kidding. The teaser features so little of the shows titular hero. Blink, and you might miss him. I’m exaggerating a bit. However, you will see more Oliver Queen than anything. But, I guess that’s the point isn’t it? It’s a passing of the baton sort of thing, as it should be. Anyway, check out the teaser below. You’ll get what you need – in way of Flash’s costume, movement and personality. Oh, and a little 30 Seconds to Mars to set the vibe.  (more…)
