Re: FLASH series being developed for The CW

For a while there Wally's costume was constructed from solid speed force.

If this new TV version is travelling at the impossible velocities we think he might, which would only be a couple times faster than the speed of sound, so that he doesn't fall off the planet...

Why am I thinking that Barry is not going to wear a costume more so than streak about painted red, or be smeared in a red cooling gel?

Re: FLASH series being developed for The CW

The Flash TV series different to Arrow: "More of a sci-fi bent"

"Barry (Grant Gustin) is different from Oliver (Stephen Amell)," he said. "He's a man of science and has more of a sci-fi bent, whereas Arrow has a bit more of a crime bent.

Berlanti also confirmed that The Flash will feature more super-powered characters, with the particle collider that gave Barry Allen his super-speed continuing to play into storylines.

"We've talked a lot on Arrow about the particle collider and Harrison Wells and S.T.A.R. Labs and so you'll see S.T.A.R. Labs as an active part of the show," he revealed.
The Flash is currently at the pilot stage at US network The CW, though Berlanti insisted that Gustin would continue to appear on Arrow if his own show does not go ahead.

Re: FLASH series being developed for The CW

It hasn't been ordered to series yet. They'll make that determination once they've seen the pilot. But I think it's close to a lock to go forward.

Yeah, especially considering they opted to go for a full pilot instead of the back door pilot they had originally intended.

Re: FLASH series being developed for The CW

The Wonder Woman pilot was David E. Kelley developing a show for NBC that was out of his comfort zone. The Flash is a spin-off of a successful CW show by producers working within their comfort zone. Something could of course go wrong, but the odds are much better here than with Kelley's Wonder Woman.

But that was from a producer who'd never done a superhero series before and seemed to have little respect or understanding for the character or the material. And it wasn't a spinoff of a show that was already a hit and a critical success. I think we have reason to be more confident about The Flash. (Or is it just Flash?)

Oh, so a better example is NCIS: RED.

Better, but not exact. That was a backdoor pilot, not a standalone pilot. Plus CBS has a lot of resources and a strong line-up of shows, so it's harder to get on the schedule than on the CW.

Re: FLASH series being developed for The CW

Regardless, the point is a lot more pilots are made than go to series.

True, which is why they're hedging their bets. Still, the chances are better than average. It's getting a pilot because everyone's optimistic.

Not by the CW. They don't have the resources for that. They tend to order about eight pilots and then pick up five or six of them as series. The current management is very SFF friendly and SFF shows currently account for their top four shows, one of which is a spin-off, so the chances of The Flash being picked up are very good.

More casting news: Tom Cavanagh has been cast as Harrison Wells. From The Wrap:

Harrison is described as a rock star in the world of physics and the mind and money behind Central City’s S.T.A.R. Labs Particle Accelerator. He becomes a pariah after his lab explodes. But he redeems himself when he discovers that his failed experiment accidentally created the world’s fastest man, The Flash (Grant Gustin).

That's a surprising retcon to the Arrow universe, but I think it's a promising development. Arrow has turned out to be a strong interpretation of the DCU, so it could make sense to use it as the anchor for an extended DCU on television, given how much trouble they're having getting one to work in the movies. Okay, they are going forward with a Batman/Superman movie, but there are no guarantees.

Or, maybe the plan is to follow Marvel's lead and do a shared universe encompassing both film and TV. It's conceivable that Arrow could be retroactively folded into the Man of Steel universe (or vice-versa, depending on how you look at it).
Let's hope that this Flash TV show is as good as the old 1991 show.
