Friday's TCA panel for CW's The Flash offered a lot of information and a few sneaky surprises.

It looks like DC and the CW aren't letting Marvel have all the fun this week.

Turns out The CW's hit Arrow'll have a spin-off this fall.

TV Guide dishes all about The Flash’s origins and world in “The Flash Casts Wentworth Miller, Plots Arrow Crossovers.”


Barry Allen'll be hitting the small screen in The Flash, where Allen (Grant Gustin) "gains the power of super speed and transforms into the Fastest Man Alive" after an accident only a superhero can manage to create. No Bruce Banner Hulking out this time, either. Or Jekyll and Hyde.

According to Natalie Abrams, "Barry hopes to prove the innocence of his father, who was accused of murdering Barry's mother" with these nifty speed demon powers. And the scientist’s lair will provide a counter to the more capitalist world of Oliver Queen in Arrow.

Geoff Johns, a legendary comic book writer for DC, assures reporters at the Television Critics Association's fall preview that this isn't a retelling or reworking like Smallville. The Flash is "probably the most faithful DC Comics adaptation ever." And Johns would know since he's the executive producer and DC Comics chief now.


He expands the world by saying the production team has "incorporated almost everything of the mythology into it and added a new backstory with S.T.A.R. Labs."

Nice tie-in for both television and comic fans alike since the small screen offers a chance to really build up legends whereas comics have many elements incorporate-namely the shared universe. Since The Flash only ties in with Arrow right now, leeway is definitely there.

Along the way, Johns announced that Prison Break's Wentworth Miller will be playing Leonard Snart. Snart's other persona is the villain known as Captain Cold. Greg Berlanti tells the media the audience will see both his origin and "the origin of the Rogues."


Number 27 on the Top 100 Comic Book Villains of All Time for IGN means the character has to be a good pick, right? Pretty good way to build up an audience as well. Who doesn't love a complex, well-developed villain?

Speaking of villains, there's an Easter Egg for fans in The Flash pilot, too. Viewers will see "a broken cage with a dangling nameplate.” Seems like supervillian and nemesis Gorilla Grodd's coming to city. Executive producer Andrew Kreisbrg teases viewers paying close attention may "see exactly what jumped out of that cage."

Definitely a good way to amp up social media chatter.


Of course, every good superhero named Barry Allen needs a set of friends to help, right?

Robbie Amell will play one part of the Firestorm as Ronnie Raymond, who'll introduced right away, while the other half will be introduced later in the season. And Amell has another tie to Arrow, since his fan cousin Stephen plays Oliver Queen. Talk about a family connection and an audience of excited fans.

Going by DC’s comicverse, which is clearly a deep basis for Flash, Firestorm wasn't originally just Raymond. In the beginning, Martin Stein took the mantle with Raymond. Coy avoidance of who’ll play Stein will definitely have anticipating fans debating across social media and websites.


Central City's filling up quickly…so what about crossovers?

Berlanti joked that "we'll have half the Justice League on our two shows this year," which offers a lot of crossover potential. After the panel, Kreisberg told TV Guide a small crossover event’ll happen when Arrow's Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) visits in Episode 4. Bu the biggest crossover is going to be two hours in "Episodes 8 of both shows, Arrow and Flash."

Sounds like CW is looking to create a smaller screen version of Marvel’s Avengers. Or perhaps looking to tie in the world with the possible big screen Justice League in Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice. While DC doesn’t really allow crossovers, it may be smart to bank on television and movie audiences since it’ll be a constant flow of content.

 


The Flash will premiere Tuesday, Oct. 7, 8/7c on The CW. (Check your local listings.)
