With The Flash set to debut in a few days on The CW, we asked Executive Producer and acclaimed Flash writer Geoff Johns if he’d mind sharing some thoughts on the Flash’s cast of super-villains, and particularly Captain Cold and the Rogues, the cold gun touting thief and his team of working class baddies who work together to make a dishonest dollar in a city patrolled by the Fastest Man Alive…
There’s nothing the least bit cold about Danielle Panabaker, the gifted and quite friendly actress who portrays Dr. Caitlin Snow on The CW’s soon-to-debut The Flash. We recently had a chance to speak with Danielle about the series, the possibility of her character taking a villainous turn and whether she enjoys frosty vacations.
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.
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.
When Central City CSI investigator Barry Allen is struck by lightning in a freak particle accel-erator accident, he awakens after nine months in a coma to discover something extraordinary: he has gained the power to travel at speeds far beyond that of a normal person, transforming him into the Fastest Man Alive. Taking a cue from his friend and ally — the Starling City hero known as Arrow — Barry now uses his superhuman abilities to help protect the people of Central City from a rogues gallery of villains – many from across the DC Universe. And this fall, he’s racing onto television screens across the nation in the all-new television series The Flash!
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.
