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

    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?

    First Felicity and now Killer Frost?

    Someone in the middle likes Firestorm mythology a lot.

    I just hope this show is better than that SyFy series from a few years back.;)

    23 years rates as a "few" years?

    Maybe he'll play a part in her transformation into Killer Frost in the series.

    I'm pleased as well. I've liked her in most of the things I've seen her in.

    A humorous reference to the Flash Gordon series from 2007.

    Out of the sky / his rockets ignite! Jets into battle / flying faster than light! (Flash Gordon!)

    Lord of the jungle / the hero who stalks! The beasts call him brother / the Ghost who Walks! (Phantom!)

    Master of magic spells and illusion / enemies crumble in fear and confusion! (Mandrake!)

    His strength is a legend / his skills conquer all! Armed with his power / we never will fall! (Lothar!)

    Wondering why a 25th century time-traveler is posing as a detective. Please don't fuck up Zoom, guys.

    So, do we think this show's going to give Barry a proper Flash costume?

    Which was actually a very good, occasionally brilliant series for the last 2/3 or so of its run. Unfortunately the first five or six episodes were so weak that most of its audience had left by the time it started to get good, hence the unfortunate public perception that it was a bad show. Here's my analysis of the series:

    We already know that it will. It's been talked about in several interviews.

    Very good point. Maybe she could be serving the same basic role as Cold rather than the more ax-crazy attitude Frost normally has?

    That's why I think they're going to use elements of Hunter Zolomon - the 25th Century thing is probably a bit too much, but "fallen friend of the Flash" would work really well.

    Maybe not Bison, but Slipknot just *has* to show up.

    Anybody speculating on what the Flash-like being was that Barry encountered when he was younger?

    In the comics, that was Professor Zoom who killed his mom when he was a kid.
