The Flash To Get His Own Pilot Episode, Separate From Arrow

The Flash’s pilot episode will no longer be the 20th episode of Arrow’s second season.

Published

2088995-lightningstrikes_flashBarry Allen (The Flash) was always set to appear in the December 4 and 11 episodes of Arrow, and that’s still happening, but after that, we were going to see Barry next in the 20th episode of Arrow Season 2.

Now, according to Deadline, that plan has changed.

Apparently, CW executives have been very pleased with Episodes 8 and 9 of Arrow Season 2, and instead want an individual Flash pilot, still directed by Nutter and written by Andrew Kreisberg and Geoff Johns. Deadline speculates that a full-blown pilot will give more of a chance to build Barry Allen’s world, and it’s likely an increased budget would come with a full pilot, too.

No word on what that means for Arrow Episode #2.20, which, we assume, will no longer have an Arrow tie-in. Regarding a full pilot, we think “hey, cool!” but at the same time, might this mean we’ll have to wait longer than April or May to see Grant Gustin in red tights?

Stay tuned for more details if they become available.

    That may be for the best, I’m not sure if Barry was suppose to have powers in episode 8 or 9 but I hope they do away with having flash in episode 2.20 on Arrow. I think they should keep Arrow more realistic (exclude super powers) and do the superpower stuff on The Flash tv show

      JUSTICE LEAGUE already has many Super Powered beings like for example Superman
      And i really liked when Green Arrow starred in SMALLVILLE

    nice to hear they are going with a normal pilot for the flash. Sucks we will have to wait longer to see barry speeding away on our screens. But cant wait to see how flash show turns out. And hopefully they will still have grant/barry show up for another appearance in season 2. since the original plan’s have changed now.

    I think it is a bit sad not to have Barry Allen/The Flash in episode 20 in Arrow after all the hints of the particle accelerator and episodes 8 and 9… It is good that The Flash has its own pilot, so his origin story can be explored further or have a bigger budget, but after all the hints in Arrow, having introduced other DC characters it is a bit strange not to have a crossover episode. I suppose the No-Powers rule means it’s going to be difficult to introduce a super-powered character on Arrow… I hope Barry Allen/The Flash is mentioned or appears in some form in episode 20. If Barry Allen exists in episode 8 and 9, I thought… shouldn’t he be at least be mentioned in Arrow as The Flash in some way? Ah well…

    I can’t wait to see which villain that the writer used in the pilot episode. I hope that it will be Professor Zoom. I can’t wait to see how close the series will be to comic book history.

Jon Cor Is Chillblaine In The Flash Season 7

Jon Cor has landed the role of the villain Chillblaine in The Flash Season 7.

Published

on

Today brings news from TV Line that Jon Cor (Shadowhunters) has been cast in the recurring role of Chillblaine in The Flash Season 7. A character who first appeared in Flash Annual #5 way back in 1992, Chillblaine at one point had possession of Captain Cold’s chill gun as given to him by the Golden Glider. Here’s how the TV show take on the character will play out, with a description also from TV Line:

Scientist Mark Stevens is a charismatic bad boy obsessed with cryogenic technology. But when he’s not breaking into corporate safes, he’s busy breaking hearts with his irresistible charm and roguish style. Armed with his own cold weapons, he’ll become a new thorn in the side of Team Flash as the DC Comics villain Chillblaine.

TV Line notes that there is currently no word of Peyton List reprising her role as Golden Glider. (Maybe Crisis on Infinite Earths can cause a recast to the other Peyton List? We’re kidding.)

The Flash Season 7 is currently scheduled to premiere February 23 on The CW.

Report: The Flash Temporarily Pauses Production

Deadline is reporting that The Flash has temporarily paused production due to a positive COVID-19 test.

Published

Deadline is reporting that The Flash production in Vancouver has temporarily paused after someone working on the series has tested positive for COVID-19. Here’s what they had to say about what has happened:

“The asymptomatic diagnosis was confirmed through the rigorous testing protocols implemented by The Flash studio Warner Bros. TV for all of its production employees. Out of an abundance of caution, production on The Flash has been temporarily suspended and contact tracing has been initiated. According to sources, the studio is currently evaluating adjustments to the production schedule in order to resume filming without the affected employee and potential close contacts, who are self-isolating.”

The Deadline piece also noted that The Flash isn’t the only show to shut down production for this reason. Each series that has returned to production has implemented strong safety protocols which involve their casts and crews frequently testing. It is our hope that this team member remains asymptomatic and that everyone stays safe and healthy on The Flash and every other production that has resumed.

The Flash Season 7 is scheduled to premiere February 23 on The CW.
