Re: FLASH series being developed for The CW

The Amells are really building a dynasty here... Robbie Amell, cousin of Stephen, and fresh from the cancellation of his other CW show "The Tomorrow People", lands a recurring role on Flash. As another superhero, no less.

http://insidetv.ew.com/2014/07/09/th...-robbie-amell/

I figured he'd land on Arrow eventually in some sort of guest role, but now he's halfway there.

Re: FLASH series being developed for The CW

First Brandon Routh as Ray Palmer, now Robbie Amell as Ronnie Raymond... there seems to be a trend of DC defaulting to the old, white versions of characters instead of the newer, more diverse versions.

By the way, Robbie Amell has a history with one other Warner Bros. property: He played Fred Jones in the two live-action Scooby-Doo prequels that came out on Cartoon Network/DVD in 2009-10.

Fred Jones must die.

He is the only thing standing between me, and living happily ever after with Daphne Blake.

Has there ever been any real interest in the thingy Choi version of the Atom? His series folded pretty quickly and except for a few spotty appearance he seems to have pretty much disappeared.

Re: FLASH series being developed for The CW

He dated Gigantia.

Which is hilarious, and that alone deserves him a gold medal.

A supervillainess 20,000 times taller than he is.

Tall chicks rule.

Oh, and his lengthy friendship with Ray Palmer was again HILARIOUS!

They never met.

Pen pals.

Scientists in correspondence for years about science.

Chronos a time travelling nemesis of the original Atom, actually faked that lengthy relationship over the course of a long weekend to INVENT the origin/backstory of the Ryan Choi Atom, and use him in a complicated and nefarious plot to destroy Ray Palmer.

Further hilarity...

After an evil version of the Atom who was part of the Suicide Squad for a time Killed Ryan, Gigantia, Ryan's girlfriend, killed that Bad Atom (because she's as evil as she is hot.) and then carried his tiny, tiny, tiny corpse around in a matchbox... I think? That memory might be conflated or fragmented somehow?

Ryan Choi was a recurring character in Batman: The Brave and the Bold, where he had a pretty fun mismatched-partners double act with Aquaman. He was an interesting character there because he thought of himself more as a scientist than a superhero and had little patience with all the macho fisticuffs. Whereas Aquaman (the BB&B version who was a thousand times more fun than Aquaman has ever been anywhere else) was all about the fisticuffs and action and macho bluster over brains. And yet Aquaman saw true heroism in Ryan/Atom and was constantly trying to bring it out in him. That made Ryan a much more interesting character than Ray Palmer was when he finally showed up (as a retired Atom who'd hooked up with a bunch of tiny aliens and become their resident John Carter/Flash Gordon).

Choi was pretty cool in B&TB (as was Aquaman, of course). That said, I'm glad we're getting Ray Palmer as Atom, and Ronniew Raymond. I was never a fan of the second Firestorm, and I barely know Choi. Just because we sometimes get new versions of some heroes doesn't mean the originals need to be thrown away. Heck, maybe Ray could lead to Ryan sometime. Either way, its cool to see some of the more obscure DC characters at least get a bit of an appearance, even if they don't become heroes (although I really hope they do become Atom and Firestorm at some point).

I feel like I just had an "A-Ha!/Eureka!" moment while re-watching The Flash Pilot again...

Re: FLASH series being developed for The CW

When they used that name on
as cheese for a trap to route the heroine, I rolled my eyes until the end when it was explained that the Villain of the piece, had looked through the phone book until he had found "that name" and then with humour, engineered that whole weeks escapade around the stunning coincidence that such a person existed.

Hopefully we'll get the Ronnie and Jason team-up instead of Professor Stein.

Re: FLASH series being developed for The CW

^ Given that this is the CW, it wouldn't surprise me if they went that route. Either that or a young and handsome Martin Stein who's more of a TA.
