Arrow’s Felicity Smoak To Appear In Flash Episode 4 “Going Rogue”

Emily Bett Rickards will be guest starring on The Flash.

The ScientistA fan favorite character with a tie to Grant Gustin’s Barry Allen will be appearing in the fourth episode of The Flash.

Not only will that episode welcome Wentworth Miller as Captain Cold; it will also feature a guest appearance by Emily Bett Rickards as Felicity Smoak, her character from Arrow.

“Barry had a big impact on those characters when he came on, and then subsequently, there was some discussion about what had happened to him, and then bringing Carlos [Valdes] and Danielle [Panabaker] onto Arrow… it would have been wrong to not deal with a lot of those emotions, especially since I think that as much as there are ‘Olicity’ fans, there were ‘Baricity’ fans, so we really wanted to address that,” Andrew Kreisberg told us today in a one-on-one interview at the press tour.

Kreisberg promises us it’s not a gimmick. “It’s an episode where Barry’s beginning to question his teammates, and Felicity coming along is not just to reconnect with him; it actually serves a grander purpose, which is that Felicity is somebody who knows how difficult it is to have teammates who are fighting crime. So, she’s there to offer some sage advice, both to Barry and to to Caitlin, Cisco, and Wells. So we’re really excited,” he says.

The title of the episode is “Going Rogue” and we are assuming it will air October 28 on The CW.

    “I think that as much as there are ‘Olicity’ fans, there were ‘Baricity’ fans, so we really wanted to address that”

    Haha, doubt that, considering 95% of Arrow’s fanbase is Olicity pro.

    I’m excited to see this united DCTV universe come to life. I’m particularly pleased that Felicity will bring a strong connection between both shows and look forward to her continuing existing relationships with Barry, Cisco and Caitlin as well as possbily developing relationships with Iris and others.

    So happy Felicity’s coming on Flash for an episode, she’s my favourite from Arrow. Glad they’re not pursuing anything romantic between her and Barry. Both have enough love interests on their own.

    I for one am really excited that Felicity will be on Flash. There’s no one better to give some advice on how to deal with stubborn superheroes than her. On Arrow, one of the main reasons Oliver Queen is the hero he is today is Felicity Smoak. Her faith and belief in him is something that Oliver values above all else. Then there’s the fact that she never takes Oliver’s BS. So, she can definitely give some pointers to Caitlin, Cisco & Wells on how to reign in cocky, stubborn superheroes.
    I’m thinking Barry’s gonna be acting more crazier and taking more risks than Oliver. Ya know, since he’d probably think he is invulnerable. That means ‘Team Flash’ will need lots of advice from somebody who has more than enough experience in that department. Somebody like Felicity Smoak. This is so exciting. I can’t wait to see Felicity interacting with Caitlin & Cisco. Loved it when they popped up in Arrow. This Fall’s gonna be one crazy season filled with all my favorite heroes. YAY!!

    I’m really optimistic about this show after seeing the leaked pilot. It looks like they’re setting up all the most iconic flash villains which could eventually lead to a rogues rebellion type story?

    I can’t wait to see Captain Cold. I also want to see Felicity teach Team S.T.A.R. Labs how to work as a group with a team that fights crime.

    I also can’t wait for the two hour crossover during the 8th episodes of the season. That is one episode before the Mid-Season finale.

    Weird, I thought I posted a comment here! I am very excited that Emily Bett will be crossing over to the Flash! She is the absolute best thing to happen to Arrow. And as much I loved the premise of the show, Felicity and Diggle make this show happen and without them I would probably not stick around. Thanks for the article and wonderful news!

    Do you know if Felicity will be crossing over for episode 8 as well?

    Cool news I guess, but I hope she wont be taking too much screen-time and focus from the regular characters of The Flash. Barry, Cisco, Iris, Caitlin, Dr Wells, already love them, want to see them getting more developed

DC FanDome: Official Flash Season 8 Costume Photo Revealed

The Flash gets a costume upgrade for Season 8 in a new photo revealed at DC FanDome.

Published

on

Today at the DC FanDome virtual event, the new boots for Barry Allen a.k.a. The Flash for Flash Season 8 were revealed… and Barry finally has his iconic gold boots in his TV incarnation.

We’ve come a long way from the original burgundy costume with the red background of the insignia, hafven’t we?

When asked about the upgrade at DC FanDome, Grant Gustin described them as “the final element that’s been missing.”

“I’ve loved all the versions of The Flash suit we’ve had on the show, but the suit we have now is the closest to the many iterations you see in the comic books — with the exception of those gold boots! I’ve always felt that those boots would be the final touch,” he added.

With the announcement, DC FanDome unveiled an official first look at the new suit, which also includes a newly designed center crest and wings. You can see the new look photo below.

From Berlanti Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television, The Flash returns for Season 8 with the five-part “Armageddon” mega-event beginning Tuesday, November 16, at 8/7c on The CW. Based on the DC characters, the series is executive produced by Greg Berlanti, Eric Wallace, Sarah Schechter, Jonathan Butler and Gabriel Garza.

Speculation: Does The Arrowverse “Armageddon” Event Take Place In The Future?

FlashTVNews’ Craig Byrne speculates that the “Armageddon” Arrowverse crossover may take place in The Flash’s future…

Published

on

In 1991, DC Comics had a crossover that went through all of their comic book Annuals. The event was called “Armageddon 2001” and took place in the then-far future of the DC Universe. We got to see different outcomes for many characters, and the villainous Monarch was revealed to be one of DC’s heroes.

Today, The CW announced this year’s crossover event that kicks off The Flash Season 8. It’s called “Armageddon” and some old favorites are back to join Barry, Iris, and Team Flash against whatever challenges they face – challenges that include Damien Darhk and Eobard Thawne/The Reverse Flash. Do note that both of those characters are known to travel through time — and that one of the returning heroes, Mia Smoak-Queen, is currently in the year 2040.

Who else is from the future? Recent Flash visitors Nora and Bart, the children of Barry and Iris. They were still in the present when we last saw them at their parents’ vow renewal.

So, here’s a prediction: What if this is an adaptation of “Armageddon 2001” but is instead “Armageddon 2051” or something like that? It would be a way to tie up loose ends like William’s kidnapping from Green Arrow and the Canaries without actually having to see it. Likewise, we don’t know for a fact that some of these guests are the 2021 versions; perhaps, for example, Black Lightning is an older Jefferson Pierce from the future, no longer retired?

But this also brings up another question: Where’s the Superman & Lois representation?

If it is the future, could the Superman there be Jordan Kent? Or, like DC’s recent “Future State” event which in many ways was like “Armageddon 2001” in previewing the future, a Jonathan Kent with powers? Being 20+ years older, it would necessitate a recasting for sure, so that would explain not being in the original announcement.

Surely, we’ll know more between now and November when the event premieres. It is a bit weird that, if there is time travel, the Legends of Tomorrow aren’t present aside from Ray Palmer who is no longer on the team. In any event, we’re very, very curious….
