His original plan was to pare things down to just one speedster, Barry Allen, but as he kept working on it, he realized it would be better to go the other way: Introduce lots of speedsters and show what makes Barry unique.
S.T.A.R. Labs has set up a training facility for the new speedsters. CBR has serveral art pages showing more than a dozen speedsters-in-training.
In addition to his friend August from the police force, two women named Mina and Avery will be working with the Flash.
There are no plans to bring Harrison Wells or other elements of the TV show at this time. (While S.T.A.R. Labs hasn’t been a big part of the New 52 Flash series, it’s been part of the DCU for decades.)
He also touched on what we already know about Godspeed — that he’s a villain who goes around killing other speedsters — and Kid Flash — that we’ll see younger Wally West’s journey toward becoming the hero seen in teasers for the new Teen Titans series.
The DC Collectibles panel at Comic-Con International unveiled some new Flash statues coming up, including a new wave of DC Bombshells statues and a statue inspired by Francis Manapul’s artwork as part of the DC Designers series. The Bombshell Flash statue is based on the Flash #32 variant cover by Ant Lucia.
Warner Bros. TV schedule is up for Comic-Con International. The Flash TV Show Panel will be Saturday, July 23 at 5pm in Ballroom 20:
Parallel universes…and doppelgangers…and man-sharks, oh my! The second season of The CW’s highest-rated series had more than its fair share of twists and turns, but none compared to Barry Allen’s jaw-dropping decision to go back in time and save his mother from his arch-nemesis, Reverse-Flash, a decision that called the entire timeline into question. But fear not, fans, you won’t have to wait until the fall to start getting answers to some of your most pressing questions, as the cast and creative team behind the show make their annual appearance at Comic-Con to begin giving fans insight into the show’s highly anticipated third season.
Violett Beane is set to return as Jesse Wells in Season 3 of the show. No word yet on whether she’ll be the Earth-2 Jesse we know or from another timeline, or whether we’ll see her as a speedster anytime soon. (via ComicsAlliance)
Warner Bros. showed a scene from Justice League featuring Batman (Ben Affleck) and the Flash (Ezra Miller) to the press, and CinemaBlend describes the scene, which shows the first meeting of Bruce Wayne and Barry Allen. The tone is reportedly a bit lighter than most of Batman v. Superman, and the scene tells us a few important things about the cinematic universe’s Barry Allen, and more. Spoilers of course.
