Comments Off on THE FLASH: Andrew Kreisberg Teases Tom Cavanagh’s Season 2 Role

THE FLASH’s season 1 Big Bad — Dr. Wells/Eobard Thawne — was defeated in the first season finale (thanks to Eddie sacrificing himself)…but his portrayer, Tom Cavanagh, is a series regular in the show’s second season.

“How he comes back is something we’re really proud of and we’re very excited about, and Tom is very excited about,” THE FLASH showrunner Andrew Kreisberg told reporters in the video below. “So much of the success of the show was Tom’s portrayal of Thawne and Wells, and that relationship he has with Barry…that will continue in the form in which it continues.”

Check out the video for more from Kreisberg, including the balance of serialization vs. cases of the week, and more…

TrickstersTHE FLASH is no stranger to paying homage to the CBS 1990 series — after all the Barry Allen of that show was played John Wesley Shipp, who plays Barry’s father in The CW freshman hit — and in tonight’s episode, “Tricksters,” the series is bringing on Mark Hamill to reprise his role as The Trickster/James Jesse, when a new Trickster pops up and starts creating trouble.

“Just the idea of being asked to play a part decades later,” Hamill joked to reporters after a screening of the hour. “That never happens.”

For Hamill, the decision to appear on The CW’s take was an easy one.

THE FLASH: Grant Gustin Teases a Bump in Barry’s Plans

flash-thumbTHE FLASH’s Barry Allen has a new goal in mind: find a way to travel back to the night his mother died, and save her from her untimely death. Unfortunately, things might not be as “easy” as Barry had hoped.

“Time travel is something we’re dealing with immediately,” Grant Gustin (Barry) teases in the video below. “[But] Barry starts to learn that maybe changing things isn’t an option.”

In the meantime, tonight’s hour is a big one. In addition to being delightfully fun — and, as THE FLASH co-star Tom Cavanagh (Wells) joked with reporters, “Hashtag game-changer.” — executive producer Andrew Kreisberg pointed to “Out of Time” as the best episode of the show’s run so far.

Comments Off on THE FLASH-ARROW Crossover: Stephen Amell, Grant Gustin, and Andrew Kreisberg Tease ‘Flash vs. Arrow’

flash-vs-arrow-featured

THE FLASH and ARROW have been loosely tied together since Barry Allen debuted on ARROW a year ago, but this week, the dramas embark on a full-on crossover as Team Arrow visits THE FLASH in “Flash vs. Arrow,” while Team Flash pops over on ARROW during “The Brave and the Bold.”

“The best thing you can do is it’s not just a gimmick,” ARROW/THE FLASH executive producer Andrew Kreisberg told reporters earlier this season. “[These crossovers are] also advancing the storylines that we’ve been telling and your characters really grow…both of these crossovers, they’re not just about the crossovers of the cast — they are really important episodes for what Barry has been going through, and what Oliver’s going through. We have one of the biggest surprises of ARROW of all time on THE FLASH episode [of the crossover]. And both episodes are really important for Barry’s growth.”

“It was fun to have the dynamic back from when I was [first] on ARROW a year ago,” THE FLASH star Grant Gustin (Barry) added. “That was when I met Barry, and he was so fun and awkward, and the dynamic between him and Oliver was so fun. And we got to recreate that. And it’s evolved. It’s really different than anything else on the show, which is nice.”

For more on the crossover, Gustin and ARROW star Stephen Amell (Oliver) teased a few more secrets while speaking with reporters on the shows’ Vancouver sets…

Comments Off on THE FLASH: Andrew Kreisberg on the Metahumans Barry Allen Will Meet

flash-thumb When ARROW premiered on The CW in 2012, the series had a set structure: the series devoted part of its time to Oliver’s flashbacks, and his present-day time was split between him readjusting to life with his loved ones and taking down names from his list of people who had failed the city.

For THE FLASH, things are slightly different — thanks to the S.T.A.R. labs explosion, a whole host of people (with both good and bad intentions) are struggling with new powers — that progress at varying speeds — so Barry Allen won’t be able to map out an exact game plan. And some “normal” folks will have advanced technology at their disposal, making them dangerous in unplanned ways.

I sat down with THE FLASH (and ARROW) co-creator Andrew Kreisberg to talk about how the structures of the show vary, how he’s balancing his work on both series, and more…

THE FLASH’s Andrew Kreisberg on the PRISON BREAK Reunion: It Was Wentworth Miller’s Idea!

Comments Off on THE FLASH’s Andrew Kreisberg on the PRISON BREAK Reunion: It Was Wentworth Miller’s Idea!

THE FLASH got fans buzzing when it was announced earlier this week that former PRISON BREAK star Dominic Purcell would be joining his former co-star, Wentworth Miller, for a guest spot on the series. (Purcell will play Mick Rory, AKA the future Heatwave, in episode 10, and Miller will first appear as Leonard Snart, AKA Captain Cold, in episode 4.)

Making the reunion even sweeter? THE FLASH executive producer Andrew Kreisberg told me (before Saturday night’s PaleyFest panel honoring the series) that the idea to bring Purcell on the freshman drama actually came from Miller.

Take a look at the video to see what Kreisberg said about the reunion, other guest stars, and whether this is just the start of meta-humans teaming up against Team FLASH…

Comments Off on THE FLASH: Andrew Kreisberg on Writing for Barry, ARROW Crossovers, and More

flash-The CW’s THE FLASH is one of the most anticipated (and best) new shows of the upcoming television season, and the series is already upping the ante before it even officially premieres — the freshman superhero drama is set to stage several crossovers with fellow CW/DC Comics series, ARROW (where Grant Gustin’s version of Barry Allen made his debut in late 2013) in the first batch of episodes.

At Comic-Con, THE FLASH (and ARROW) executive producer Andrew Kreisberg sat down with reporters to talk about the importance of doing the upcoming crossovers (while also balancing ARROW’s realism with THE FLASH’s more fantastical tone), getting to write Barry Allen, and much more.

Comments Off on THE FLASH on The CW – First Look

THE FLASH, The CW’s ARROW “spinoff,” has had a fair amount of exposure over the past six or so months, as the pilot was originally set to be a backdoor pilot during the second half of ARROW’s sophomore season (and Barry Allen was introduced in an arc in the show’s 2013 episodes).

But now, Barry Allen will officially have his own series, and THE FLASH will be paired this fall with SUPERNATURAL on Tuesdays. And while we got teases of The Flash’s mask and full costume (and teaser aired during last night’s ARROW finale), we now have a few photos from the episode, the network’s official description of the series, and a proper trailer.

Take a look!
