Fans who were hoping that Grant Gustin's Barry Allen and Emily Bett Rickards' Felicity Smoak would cement their budding Arrow romance on The CW's upcoming spinoff Flash series should take note, because Smoak's got some competition now.

The series has cast actress Candice Patton, who viewers may know from the BET sitcom The Game or from a few episodes of Heroesto play Iris West, the woman that Barry married in the comics (before that all got erased in Flashpoint).

Wally West Makes His DC Comics New 52 Debut In April

Wally West The Flash

When DC Comics launched its New 52 initiative in 2011, rebooting and updating the entire DC Universe, it meant making a number of big changes, from dissolving Superman's marriage to Lois Lane to Barbara Gordon's return as Batgirl. And one of the more widely discussed changes among a large portion of DC readers was the decision to eliminate Wally West from continuity, leaving Barry Allen as the only Flash.

But like so many heroes in comics who have disappeared for some time, his return was all but inevitable, and DC Comics has announced today that Wally will return to the pages of the Flash this spring.

Unseen Concept Art And Storyboards From The ‘Flash’ Video Game That Never Was

Flash Canceled Video Game

Right around the time Rocksteady Games was working on Batman: Arkham Asylum, another studio, BottleRocket Entertainment, was hard at work on propelling another DC superhero, The Flash, into video game stardom.

But when Brash Entertainment, the company that held the Flash license, folded in November 2008, the project fell apart, leaving only a trailer, a few storyboards and some concept art behind. Luckly, chief designer Greg Miller hung on to that work and recently shared it. Check out some concepts and storyboards by artists Roger Robinson and Shane Nakamura after the jump.

Writers Hint That ‘The Flash’ TV Spinoff Won’t Be As Dark As ‘Arrow’

CBS
CBS

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.
