We’re not sure what the hell DC is doing with their titles in regards to movies. They’re finally getting their shit together, but it’s taken a while. When it comes to TV, however, they seem to be doing pretty well. The pre-Batman saga Gotham looks like it could be damn good time, Arrow has been a big hit for the CW, and they’re hoping to piggyback on that success with by spinning off another beloved character in The Flash. The network has been hyping the show, and now their back with this new quick teaser, and they’ve announced another new cast member that gets us even more amped. The Kurgan himself, Clancy Brown, will play General Wade Eiling.

While this short video isn’t terribly exciting, it lays out the basic premise of the show and introduces the protagonist, Barry Allen (Grant Gustin), a scientist who gets struck by lightning and gets really, really fast and uses his newfound abilities to save people.

Comic-Con-LogoAnother massive installment of San Diego’s Comic-Con International has come and gone, leaving the fans to disperse to the four corners of the Earth, laden down with bags of swag. Of course, many people didn’t get to go this year, and there are even more who’ve never been to Comic-Con at all. Thankfully, this is the internet age, so even if you weren’t amid the throngs last week, you can still experience some of the awesomeness via the slew of panel videos that have popped up online.

These don’t give you the visceral thrill of being in the middle of 6,000 cheering geeks in Hall H, and you’re not going to get to see the really cool stuff like that Avengers 2 footage, but many of the panel discussions and Q&A segments are available online to watch in full. Check out the ones we found below, and if you want to recreate the experience more fully, feel free to watch them while crowded into a tool shed with 30 or 40 strangers. But you have to wait in line for 12 hours first.

The Flash Casts Robbie Amell As One-Half Of The Nuclear Hero Firestorm

AmellThey started with Barry Allen, but now the producers of The CW’s Arrow and The Flash are filling out their super-heroic universe nearly as quickly as the big-screen DC Cinematic Universe Zack Snyder is trying to build off the back of Man of Steel. In addition to DC’s Emerald Archer and Scarlet Speedster, earlier this week we learned that former Superman actor Brandon Routh would be guest-starring on Arrow this season as Dr. Ray Palmer, who in the comics fights crime as the shrinking superhero The Atom. Now Arrow’s sister series The Flash is adding another classic Silver Age DC character to the mix: the flame-headed nuclear hero Firestorm…or at least half of him.

Entertainment Weekly broke the news today that actor Robbie Amell has landed a recurring role on The Flash as Ronnie Raymond. In the comics, Raymond would combine with physicist Martin Stein to become Firestorm. Basically Raymond would control Firestorm’s physical aspect, while Stein would share a consciousness with him. So Stein was basically the superhero equivalent of backseat driver you just can’t get rid of. Thankfully Raymond got some perks to balance out having one of his professors jammed into his brain: Firestorm could fly around and alter the molecular structure of things in various nifty ways. Also his head is on fire, like, all the time.

The Flash Introduces You To The S.T.A.R. Labs Team

Hoping to springboard off of the popularity of their Green Arrow adaptation, Arrow, The CW is set to launch The Flash this fall. We’ve already seen a handful of promotional videos, as well as a crossover arc that introduced this latest incarnation of the long-running DC Comics character. But a hero never stands alone, and the Flash is no exception. Without the team at S.T.A.R. Labs, Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) wouldn’t even have survived, and this new video introduces you to the supporting cast.

This footage comes from the pilot episode, and the video starts off with Barry, a nerdy scientist gasping back to life on the lab table. Taking place months after he has been struck by lightning, he doesn’t look half bad for a guy who has been asleep for most of a year. As we’ve seen in other teasers, he also wakes up with a six-pack. He also has the ability to run really, really fast, which he puts to good use by dawning a tight red body suit and becoming a superhero.

The Flash: John Wesley Shipp’s Mystery Role Finally Revealed

fb share tweet share

The FlashNext fall, The CW is going to double down on DC Comics superheroes. Arrow, their adaptation of Green Arrow, has become a big hit for the network, and they’re using that popularity as a launching pad for The Flash. This won’t be the first time the character has appeared on your TV screen. There was a short-lived series in the early 1990s that was a critical and popular flop, and the star of that show, John Wesley Shipp, has been attached to the new version, though there has been no word about his role, until now.

The cover has been pulled back, and Shipp’s character has been revealed. Grant Gustin will take over the lead role in this new endeavor, and though Shipp is the metaphorical father of the title character, he will also play the very literal father. Gustin plays Barry Allen, a scientist who, after a bizarre accident, gets the power of super speed, which he then uses to become a super hero. Shipp will play Barry’s dad, Henry Allen.
