With the possible exception of Green Lantern, the Flash has the most complex history of all of the Justice Leaguers. His stories involve traveling through time and dimensions. So to fill you in on a few of the basics in time for the premiere of his new show, we thought we’d whip up a quick 101 on the Fastest Man Alive.
Any parent knows how difficult it can be chasing after a running child. But what about when the child’s the World’s Fastest Man? We were curious what it’s like guiding and occasionally disciplining a super hero, and so we sat down with Jesse L. Martin, the acclaimed actor who portrays Joe on The CW’s new Flash series, on a recent visit to the DC Comics office in Burbank to ask him.
On The Flash, show with no shortage of colorful, uniquely memorable characters, Cisco Ramon stands out due to his sense of humor and youthful enthusiasm, qualities he seems to share with Carlos Valdes, the actor who embodies him. Recently, we had the chance to speak with Carlos about the show and the part he plays in it—a role that holds the promise of even greater heroics as the series goes on.
As Iris West on The Flash, Candice Patton is both a best friend and potential love interest for our hero. But don’t think for a moment she’s merely arm candy. Iris is intelligent, driven and curious, particularly about Central City’s new masked hero. Candice recently spoke with us about her new role, offering her thoughts on love triangles, her favorite super hero [spoiler: it’s not the Flash] and what she would do if she were the one with super speed.
Did you know the new seasons of Arrow and The Flash have already begun?
Two weeks ago, The CW released an intriguing new promotional poster for The Flash, their speed-driven new series based on the popular DC Comics character. The poster shows Grant Gustin as the Flash, speeding across a Central City street as his trail forms his signature lightning bolt. But what’s really gotten fans buzzing are all of the hidden clues and “Easter Eggs” found within the city.
If you’ve turned on your TV, fired up your phone, tablet or computer, or looked at any billboards over the past few weeks, you probably know that The Flash is coming to The CW on October 7th. That’s when he’s debuting on TV sure enough, but this unique new interpretation of the Fastest Man Alive actually premieres today. And no, you didn’t forget to set your DVR...
Barry Allen hits the ground running next month in the highly anticipated new show, The Flash. If you're a fan of the Scarlet Speedster, you've likely been counting down the days, and while we're unable to make them pass any faster (you'd need the Speed Force for something like that), our good friends at The CW are making the wait a little easier with some brand new images from the pilot, including a DCComics.com exclusive image showing Barry Allen alongside the brilliant Harrison Wells at S.T.A.R. Labs.
