Re: FLASH series being developed for The CW

Shouldn't Det. West be a trust worthy father figure to Wally?

Wouldn't be the first time a Flash adaptation has blended elements of Barry and Wally into the same character. The '90 TV series' Barry Allen was teamed with Tina McGee, part of Wally's supporting cast from the comics, and had Wally's need to eat tons of food to support his metabolism.

And we already know from Arrow that this universe's characters can have major, major differences from their comics namesakes. I'm still trying to figure out why Felicity Smoak was named after a businesswoman antagonist/eventual mother-in-law of Firestorm. There doesn't seem to be any resemblance between that character and the Felicity we know and love from the show.

i'm hoping Felicity is her middle because she didn't like her first name: Iris.

Re: FLASH series being developed for The CW

If there's a Detective West in the Flash series, it stands to reason there will be an Iris West on that show as well. And since Jesse L. Martin is playing the detective, that means that Iris will presumably be African-American.

They've been doing screen tests with African-American actresses for the part of Iris West.

Re: FLASH series being developed for The CW

That's good to hear. Arrow started out with a nicely diverse cast, but now most of their black or Asian cast members have either been killed off (Byron Mann, Roger Cross, Celina Jade, Chin Han) or pretty much disappeared (Annie Ilonzeh, Janina Gavankar, Colin Salmon, Kelly Hu), so these days the show is disappointingly lacking in diversity. Nice to see the spinoff is casting at least two of its lead roles as nonwhite.

There is a difference between cast memebers and guest stars, only Colin Salmon was actaully a regular.

I've liked Panabaker in roles in some other shows I watch. I watch TVD, but I'm not sure who Cosnett played.

Re: FLASH series being developed for The CW

If they hadn't decided to cast African-Americans for the West family, Danielle Panabaker would've made a good Iris.

Killer Frost eh? Nice - usually one of the more minor ice-themed DC villains, but I'll be interested to see what they do with her. (Though, I am kind of surprised that they're going with her considering Captain Cold.)

Detective Eddie Thawne? I wonder if they're gonna combine elements of the Thawne Professor Zoom and the Hunter Zolmon Zoom?

Worth keeping in mind that this universe has radically reinterpreted some of the comics' characters, so it may not be save to assume anything about where they might be taking a given character. I mean, who knew Black Canary would turn out to be Dinah Laurel Lance's sister?
