Well the no powers policy seems good and to break it so fast is not a good sign but you can't have a stupid rule like that bind a show forever, just take a look at Smallville and their "no tights, no flight" rule, it actually hurt the series down the road.

I'm very excited, I always thought Flash worked better as a tv series than a movie series because I just want to see more of the Flash and you can't do that with movies. His effects can easily be done in TV budget as well. I loved the 90s tv series and actually think it holds up rather well. The fact of making a TV DCU is not a bad idea, the movie universe is being done rather nicely by Marvel, this is a way for DC to have their own universe in the mainstream without copying too much from Marvel but we'll see how things go with Batman in MOS2.

I'm not familiar with comic flash too much but Barry Allen in the TV show was great, and Wally West in JL was also great, I'm fine with either of those takes on the character. I was indeed bored with The Batman's and DCU animated movies take on the character like in New Frontier. And we don't see enough of The Flash in Young Justice/BATB but YJ's Wally was alright.

I could get behind this if they do it right. I love The Flash. I absolutely love the classic show and have always wished someone would give it another try, so this could be cool.

I don't think this was a CW/WB imposed rule as much as Tom Welling. I read an interview where he basically admitted he was afraid of the "Superman Curse" and thus had it written into his contract that he would never wear the suit. The producers had no problem with that because that wasn't what the show was about anyway. Even in the finale, what we see is CGI.

Hmm...seems that CW has decided that The Flash will be fully introduced in a stand-alone pilot instead of the intro being an ep of Arrow.

We'll still see Barry in Arrow as the 2 main episodes that introduce him have been filmed, however I guess we won't see him as The Flash in the show itself.

And casting's have begun for the West's!!

Law and Order star Jesse L. Martin has been cast as Ira West, father of Iris West/grandfather of Wally/GG grandfather of Bart. There are some um changes to his character from the comics.

In the comics he was a nobel prize winning physicist. In the show he's a police Detective who took in Barry after his mother's death and father's imprisionment. Basically Iris and Barry were raised together. Iris is Barry's BFF in the show.

This is Jesse Martin:

No. Flash is Barry Allen. He's white and was raised by the West's. If Wally ever shows up he'll be black.

Weird.

Not that I was ever going to care too much about a show that spun off from "Arrow". (Although I've heard season 2 is better)

Aaand Iris West has been cast. She will be played by Candice Patton. The only thing I've seen her in is "Heroes".

NO! The Flash is Barry Allen. He's a white who was taken in by a black family after the death of his mother and incarceration of his father.

If Wally West were to be in the series he'd be black. But the show is about Barry.

I'm really pumped for this. I enjoyed Smallville and I am still on the fence about Arrow (have to watch a few more episodes). Flash has always been one of my favorites so I am glad to hear they are doing a series about him.

If this show doesn't have Barry and Iris end up together, I'm gonna be pissed. That's racist as fu*k.

What an odd choice of a character to include in this show; a character whose own co-creator hates him with a passion. Ah well.
