New “Flash” TV Series Announcements


Entertainment Weekly has reported that the CW’s Arrow executive producer, Andrew Kreisburg, has discussed a timeline for the new Flash television series, and that casting for the character, now confirmed to be Dr. Barry Allen, will be announced by the end of this month.  Flash has been talked about being introduced during the second season of Arrow, which premieres on October 9th.  As far as how the television characters are shaping up against their big screen coworkers, Warner Bros. has pretty much said that they are keeping the TV and movie universes separate for the time being, although that could change in the future.  Here is more of what Mr. Kreisburg had to say below.

“We’ll have to have somebody by Sept. 30, which is when we start shooting [his first] episode. So there is that timeline,” commented Arrow exec producer Andrew Kreisberg. “But it’s been a really exciting process just getting to meet so many fantastic actors and seeing the enthusiasm that so many people around town have for the character. It’s just amazing — I have pictures of myself at age 4 holding a Flash and a Superman doll. That I’m sitting here writing the Flash and Green Arrow now, it’s more than my little nerd heart can bear sometimes.”

In a conference call in July, Kreisburg talked more about the introduction of the character and plans for the series.

“Despite the fact that he’s got superpowers, I think there’s something really relatable about Barry — of all the big seven of the Justice League. He got his powers by accident. He isn’t a God, he isn’t an alien, he wasn’t seeking this out,,,,These powers came to him and his reactions to that feel very human and grounded…. Oliver Queen [Stephen Amell] is a very dark and tortured soul and Barry is not. I think it will be fun to see these two characters together because they have distinctly different world views.”
