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.

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
      I don’t know when they are gonna name him Green Arrow in the show but hope its soon and i’m excited to see some really good team work from Arrow and The Flash

    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.

Jordan Fisher has been spotted on set wearing his Impulse costume for The Flash Episode 150.

Published

Surprisingly, The CW didn’t release an official photo ahead of some outdoor filming for The Flash Episode 150… which means that photographers up in Vancouver were the ones to deliver our first look at Jordan Fisher in costume as Bart Allen a.k.a. Impulse.

As you can see, the costume is very true to the one from the comics, first introduced in a story drawn by artist Mike Wieringo and written by Mark Waid.

Stay tuned for when we’ll likely get an official one from the network and the studio within a few days… but if you just can’t wait… swing by Canadagraphs’ Patreon for your first peeks! Below, have a look at what Bart Allen’s costume looks like in the pages of DC Comics.
