Tag: The Flash (1-10 of 27)
Will the fastest man alive be able to outrun prying eyes? Add that to the growing list of concerns Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) will now have to worry about on The Flash.
Andy Mientus is going from Smash to The Flash.
The Broadway actor, currently playing Marius in Les Miserables, has been cast as Hartley Rathaway, aka Pied Piper in CW’s new DC comics-inspired series The Flash, EW has confirmed. Mientus will appear in episodes #111 and #112 as the bona fide genius who seeks revenge on his former mentor, Dr. Harrison Wells (Tom Cavanagh), by destroying his new protege The Flash after the same particle accelerator explosion that created Barry Allen’s superpowers causes Rathaway to lose his hearing. Pied Piper is one of the only openly gay villains in the DC Comics universe and will be portrayed that way on TV. READ FULL STORY
It’s been a busy summer for Team Arrow. With Slade Wilson (Manu Bennett) safely locked away on the island, Oliver (Stephan Amell) & Co. have set their sights on ridding Starling City of criminals, and maybe finding some normalcy. That’s why Ollie will finally ask Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) out on a date during the season premiere. Of course, date night will go awry, kicking off a series of events that—to put it simply—will be a major buzzkill for their otherwise successful summer.
Since so much of the third season has already been teased over the last few months, EW compiled a handy list of spoilers to whet your appetite for the new season. Plus: There’s an exclusive sneak peek at Brandon Routh’s debut.
Warning: This story contains major spoilers from the series premiere of The Flash. Read at your own risk.
Barry Allen is going to die. Just kidding. Maybe. The series premiere of The CW’s Flash included an ominous closing scene that seemed to indicate a deadly future for Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) that may have left some viewers scratching their heads.
The Flash is about to get very cold.
Ahead of the series premiere, DC Comics chief Geoff Johns posted a few photos of Prison Break star Wentworth Miller as Leonard Snart, otherwise known as Captain Cold.
There are a number of people who have already seen Tuesday’s series premiere of The Flash. Months before its debut, a leaked copy hit the internet, and then Warner Bros. screened it at Comic-Con. But there’s a very good reason why viewers should still tune in Tuesday night.
In our fall TV preview, we broke down each day into what to watch live and what to DVR. Here’s your Fall Tuesday night game plan:
DVR: The Flash (The CW): One of the hotly anticipated superhero series this fall, The Flash exists in the same universe as CW’s Arrow and follows comic book favorite Barry Allen/The Flash (Grant Gustin). Premieres Oct. 7.
Watch: Marry Me (NBC): Casey Wilson and Ken Marino make a fine couple in this new comedy, which is loosely based on Wilson’s real-life romance with the show’s creator, David Caspe. Premieres Oct. 14.
Watch: The Mindy Project (Fox): We’ve already seen Danny (Chris Messina) do a sexy striptease for Mindy (Mindy Kaling) on the season premiere, so get excited to see where that relationship goes from there.
DVR: NCIS: New Orleans (CBS): The NCIS franchise has become a verifiable conglomeration with all these spin-off in cities all over the country. This time, NCIS heads to New Orleans with Scott Bakula at the helm as Special Agent Dwayne Pride.
Watch: Sons of Anarchy (FX): This will be the last season we’ll see our beloved NorCal biker bros and it is crucial to see how Jax (Charlie Hunnam) deals with the consequences of his destructive path of vengeance after Tara’s (Maggie Siff) death.
DVR: Forever (ABC): Forever joins a long line of “deductive genius” dramas, and this show is no exception to the trend. The show stars Ioan Gruffudd as Dr. Henry Morgan, a New York City medical examiner who’s been knocking around life for over 200 years due to his immortality.
Everything about The Flash happened fast. Producers conceived of the spin-off just two months after Arrow premiered. They cast the first actor who auditioned to star. And now The Flash will debut on The CW on Oct. 7, just two years later, as one of fall’s most anticipated shows. The birth of TV’s fastest man alive was one of the fastest spin-offs ever made, and if you give us a couple quick minutes we’ll tell you just how it happened.
Creating: December, 2012, executive producers Greg Berlanti and Andrew Kreisberg were hard at work on the first season of Arrow, when Berlanti had an idea: Flash spin-off. Kreisberg recalls replying: “We just got our hands on this one!’” But The CW’s entertainment president Mark Pedowitz was on the same page. “They delivered on Arrow pretty quickly and the Flash is a DC character that never got his full due.” Plus, while Flash exists in the Arrow universe, the character had a creative bonus their buff bowman lacked — super-powers. Yet to pull off a spin-off, the producers needed perfect— READ FULL STORY
It’s been almost a quarter century since the CBS aired The Flash, a shortlived but fondly-remembered(-by-a-couple-people)(-including-yours-truly) attempt to tell an ongoing superhero saga on the small screen. In recent years, superpowered dramas have become quite common on television–to the point that DC Entertainment has a new Flash show launching this season on the CW, alongside network sibling Arrow and Fox’s Batman-minus-Batman prequel Gotham.
