SDCC '14: THE FLASH Pilot Screening Declared A Hit; iZOMBIE A No-Show

The CW was expected to debut the pilot episodes of two upcoming comic-based TV series, The Flash and iZombie, at SDCC today, and while the former was extremely well-received, the Vertigo comic adaption didn't even screen.


One of the most anticipated aspects of San Diego Comic-Con this year was the screenings of pilot episodes for new DC Comics-based TV shows, with episode one of The Flash and iZombie set to premiere. Well, Bleeding Cool has a source who reported The Flash was a big crowd-pleaser, but strangely, the latter pilot was a no-show. "A jam-packed Ballroom 20 played host to WB's Flash pilot and the huge audience loved it," they write. "It would appear the network has another hit, another Arrow in its quiver so to speak. I could feel the audience's enthusiasm and excitement. Another thing I noticed is a sizable chunk of the audience being female. The iZombie pilot that was promised wasn't delivered, with a Warner rep saying 'cast changes' are responsible and only a clip would be screened." Well, that certainly sounds troubling for the Vertigo property, but it's very pleasing to hear the Scarlett Speedster take off. The Flash debuts on the CW on October 7th, with iZombie roughly kicking off later in the year.

I didn't get a chance to watch the leaked Constantine pilot :(
omnipotent18 - 7/23/2014, 8:59 PM
I'm excited to see it.
AlphaMasterFlex - 7/23/2014, 9:04 PM
iZombie just seems guaranteed to fail.
BlackIceJoe - 7/23/2014, 9:32 PM
Personally out of Constantine and Flash. I preferred Constantine. Don't get me wrong I'll be watching Flash I just prefer more of the supernatural side of DC. That being said the first episode of Flash was great. I look forward to see what they'll bring into that show. It is interesting that iZombie wasn't shown. The reason why more people are skeptical of that show. So you would think WB would want people to get a taste of that show.
ALmazing - 7/23/2014, 9:33 PM
The leaked pilot was pretty good, I am curious to see what changes they'll make for aired pilot.
JasonBlue - 7/23/2014, 9:44 PM
iZombie needs to get canned... Yo WB/DC the monsters fad is over... get smart and make a "The Question" tv show

I'm still pissed I haven't seen the leaked pilot, Yet everyone's keeps gloating around here hahaha. I'm sure it was awesome and can't wait till it premieres. DC/WB aren't f**king around anymore.
AztecaAguilar04 - 7/23/2014, 10:29 PM
@Batmaniac Damn you sir, Damn you. Hahahaha!
AztecaAguilar04 - 7/23/2014, 10:32 PM
And what's up with the hipster chick and all her gifs? Doom hahahaha.
Darktower - 7/23/2014, 10:46 PM
The Flash Plot was Awesome....
the Part wen he and Oliver spoke on the roof top was a gud touch !
DCGuy - 7/23/2014, 11:19 PM
I think iZombie will be good, if they're changing things it's like with Constantine only to make it better
dethpillow - 7/24/2014, 1:16 AM
@AztecaAguilar - what do u mean? u can get the Flash pilot on torrent easy. just search "Flash" "pilot".

Flash show actually looks like it might be cool to me. seems like a different vibe than Arrow. haven't seen the pilot yet, but just the descriptions and pictures and stuff. great costume.
CherryBomb - 7/24/2014, 2:38 AM
Flash pilot was surprisingly good!

Aww it's a shame they didn't screen iZombie, it actually looks like a pretty good guilty-pleasure kinda show.
NovaCorpsFan - 7/24/2014, 4:48 AM
Loved every second of the pilot. Hope the series delivers further.
nibs - 7/24/2014, 5:15 AM
Constantine pilot > flash pilot
JredTheRed - 7/24/2014, 7:08 AM
@AztecaAguilar04 - T.I, isn't a hack. He is one of the few lasting good hip hop artists. Flo Rida tho, cant argue with that one.
megabatfan - 7/24/2014, 7:36 AM
I am cautiously optimistic as to how Firestorm will be presented in live action... Especiall on the CW. I'm cool with all the costumes thus far. Huntress is kinda meh... But Firestorm is a whole different kettle of fish... with the flaming hair and all.
nibs - 7/24/2014, 8:54 AM
lol TI is garbage.
