Today the CW announced the casting of Hartley Sawyer as the Elongated Man in The Flash TV series. As reported by Variety, Sawyer’s most recent work is also from the CW, as part of the web series Saving The Human Race. And on The Flash, Ralph the detective will apparently be joining forces with Team Flash to solve one of Central City’s greatest mysteries.

Bleeding Cool posted some DC covers for August, and among them is the primary cover for Flash #29. It shows Barry fighting Shrapnel, who’s mentioned in the solicitation for that issue.
And while we’re here, CBR did an interview with Flash writer Joshua Williamson about his most recent story arc on the book, and specifically about how he sees Eobard Thawne. There he offers some insight into Thawne’s troubled psychology and the development of the story. Check it out, you may find it interesting.
Plus, here’s a look at Barry’s daughter Nora Allen in Justice League #26, courtesy of Comicosity. The two Green Lantern kids are described as having the Allen surname as well, so it’ll be interesting to see what their deal is and how they may be related to Barry. This will presumably be another alternate future, since we were just treated to a glimpse of the potential future Dawn and Don Allen in the Flash series; perhaps history will be changed so Nora and these other kids are never born. We will have to see.
You want action? You’ve got it! You want a stunning conclusion? It’s right here! Joshua Williamson has made Eobard Thawne more menacing than ever…more sinister and yet more pathetic an individual, more dangerous and yet more lost. It’s a great conclusion to this arc, setting in motion some intriguing possibilities for future issues. I have some minor qualms, an we’ll get to those, but overall this is an outstanding conclusion to “Running Scared”. Want to know more? Follow us after the jump!
DC has released the five-page preview for this week’s Flash #27 issue, featuring the full debut of Barry as the Negative-Flash. Plus, it’s the finale of the big story arc with Eobard Thawne.
You can see all the pages at Freaksugar, and the issue will be out this Wednesday.
The Flash panel just wrapped up at SDCC, and there were a few new juicy details. It’s been confirmed that the Thinker is the major villain of Season Four, and he’ll be played by The 100 actor Neil Sandilands. His sidekick/assistant, known as the Mechanic, will be played by Kim Engelbrecht. Probably the most surprising cast news, however, is that famed movie actor Danny Trejo will be playing Cynthia (Gypsy)’s dad Breacher. It’s not known how much of a role he’ll have, but he’s a pretty big name for the show.
A few details here and there about the coming season:
*There will be more crossovers.
*The show isn’t doing time travel in Season Four, partly because of how complicated Savitar was.
*There are so many different versions of Harrison Wells we could potentially see. Possibly even a version of Wells who is Johnny Quick.
*The tone of the show will be lighter this season (although I believe they said that last year).
*Grant Gustin does indeed appear this season.
*Iris is leading Team Flash during Barry’s absence.
*Joe and Cecile’s relationship will get more serious.
*There’ll be more of Cisco and Cynthia.
*There was seemingly no mention of Julian Albert nor actor Tom Felton.
And here’s the sizzle reel for the fourth season, which showcases Iris’ important role.

Newsarama reports that there was an announcement of a live action Flashpoint film at the WB SDCC panel today. There are no details as of yet, but it’s a very interesting concept; readers may recall there was an animated film of the story called Justice League: Flashpoint Paradox a few years ago, and of course The Flash TV series recently did a version of it too, so it’s a bit of a surprise to learn it will be told in the DC cinematic universe as well. Thus, it’ll be interesting to see what will be done with it and why the WB movieverse wants to tell that story already. Newsarama speculates it has something to do with the rumours of Ben Affleck leaving the cinematic universe, but that’s all unverified as of now.
