Comicbook.com talked to Grant Gustin about whether he’s comfortable playing Barry yet, and what kinds of research he did to prepare for the role.
The DC blog has an interview with Candice Patton (Iris West), in which they discuss her favourite superhero, what she would do if she had superspeed, and more. Starting next week, she will apparently be photo-blogging about what it’s like to work on the Flash series, so that’s something to look forward to at the DC blog.
The Nerdist talked to Geoff Johns about Captain Cold’s role in the TV series (Johns co-wrote his debut episode), as well as a bit about the lighter tone of the Flash comic series:
Geoff Johns: One of the things I always thought when Francis Manapul and I started the Barry Allen run is that even though Barry had all this tragedy in his life he was still the Flash. He was still interacting with people, he was still cheerful, and it was still a bright book. It’s just who the Flash is. He’s not a dark character. He’s a blue-sky character. He runs around during the day. It’s just intentional. Obviously we want to celebrate superheroes and this is a way to celebrate them.
Hero Complex talked to Flash writers Robert Venditti and Van Jensen about the role of Wally West in the ongoing comics series, as well as some of the controversy which has surrounded his current characterization. There are some spoilers for the Futures End: Flash issue, so be warned.
As reported at Comicbook.com — and many other sites — the Arrow half of the Arrow/Flash crossover episode will be titled “The Brave And The Bold”. This has obvious connotations for DC fans, even if one half of the duo will be Oliver Queen instead of Hal Jordan. (And as you may recall, the Flash episode of the crossover has the more prosaic title of “Flash Vs Arrow”.)
Finally, there’s a new preview clip from the pilot episode — which debuts a week from today, on October 7. You may have seen most of this footage already if you watched Barry’s appearance on Arrow, but there’s also another brief cameo which is unique to the Flash pilot and is relevant to another character.
