He is, in fact, he'd been known to move as fast as 13 trillion times the speed of light.
You can't go faster than light in real space.
As long as he keeps accelerating, what he is doing will take a reducingly geometric fraction of the relative time to act out than it appears to take in the real world.
Or time travel.
He could be sliding backwards in time at a similar negative rate to how he is moving forward in time, like anyone else, creating a zero sum.
Sure I can't, I'm not Flash.
Silly humans and their speed of light and spacetime nonsense.
I kind of like the New 52 costume with the seams that glow. I wouldn't mind seeing something like that onscreen.
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?
The Flash TV series different to Arrow: "More of a sci-fi bent"
Does not go ahead... WTF?
This is still not %100?
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.
WW got a full pilot too. How did that work out?
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.
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:
No Asians yet on this show, and this coming from a white guy. Hmmm..
Let's hope that this Flash TV show is as good as the old 1991 show.
