The CW’s superhero series Arrow re-imagines Green Arrow for a TV audience as a tough, often ruthless vigilante bent on setting things right in his home of Starling City by punishing the wicked. ComicsAlliance’s Matt Wilson will be following along to see how he fares.
This week, super powers officially become a thing on Arrow, Barry Allen makes his long-awaited first appearance, and a lot of arrows go into a lot of legs.
Since the announcement in July that The CW was developing a new Flash television series to spin out of Arrow, the question for many fans was who'd be playing DC Comics scarlet speedster. The answer has arrived, as Warner Bros. has announced that Glee and 90210 actor Grant Gustin has been cast as Barry Allen in the upcoming show.
As I have said many times, The CW's Arrow is a pretty dark show to be as silly as it is sometimes. One might suspect that the network's new series featuring Barry Allen as The Flash would take a similar tack, but the writers developing the series, which will spin off from Arrow, are indicating Barry's show will be brighter and more superheroic than Ollie's.
The Hollywood Reporter confirmed that Barry Allen will appear in three episodes of Arrow next season. He'll be in episodes 8 and 9, and then episode 20 will serve as a backdoor pilot for the new Flash series. All three will be written by the team of Greg Berlanti, Andrew Kreisberg and Geoff Johns.
The CW must be pleased as punch with Arrow creators Greg Berlanti and Andrew Kreisberg, along with director David Nutter, because the network has asked the team to develop a new series based on The Flash.

We didn't realize when we set out to list our favorite comic books of 2012 that it had been such a fun year to be a fan of the medium that we all love so much. The last twelve months offered readers a wide variety of work ranging from the most crowd-pleasing superhero epics to the most idiosyncratic of indies; the return of much missed mangaka and the emergence of exciting new talent; a new crowd-sponsored visibility for self-publishing; and the ascension of the fan artist from bedroom dreamer to Tumblr tycoon. It was a busy and produc
Jeff Fowler of Evil Genius Productions has created some impressive superhero props of late, including Captain America's shield, Batman and Batgirl's cowls and more, but the artist/filmmaker's coolest accomplishment yet may be transforming current Flash writer and artist Francis Manapul into the Scarlet Speedster himself with an awesome custom Flash helmet. Fowler based the design off the hero's current New 52 look and built if from scratch, giving Manapul the perfect fit as seen in multiple photos from their respective
