"Detective Pretty Boy" Featurette For THE FLASH Contains New Footage And Interviews

A new featurette for The Flash focuses on Detective Eddie Thawne and how he's viewed by the rest of the characters who pass through Central City PD. The brief video also contains some new footage from the pilot, as it introduces us to the man who could one day become Reverse-Flash...

Detective Eddie Thawne will be played by Rick Gosnett in the pilot episode of The Flash, and as fans of the comics should already know, his name is extremely similar to that of Professor Zoom, a.k.a. Reverse-Flash. This is obviously a very different take on the character if they are one and the same, and it should be very interesting to see how he does evolve from "Detective Pretty Boy" into the Scarlet Speedster's greatest enemy. Check out the brief new featurette below (which drops some hints about a possible relationship between Thawne and Iris West), and then be sure to let us know what you think about the footage in the comments section below!


After a particle accelerator causes a freak storm, CSI Investigator Barry Allen is struck by lightning and falls into a coma. Months later he awakens with the power of super speed, granting him the ability to move through Central City like an unseen guardian angel. Though initially excited by his newfound powers, Barry is shocked to discover he is not the only “meta-human” who was created in the wake of the accelerator explosion — and not everyone is using their new powers for good. Barry partners with S.T.A.R. Labs and dedicates his life to protect the innocent. For now, only a few close friends and associates know that Barry is literally the fastest man alive, but it won’t be long before the world learns what Barry Allen has become…The Flash.

gamecreatorjj - 7/2/2014, 1:28 PM
Wells is totally Reverse Flash. Eddie has got to be Cobalt Blue.
marvel72 - 7/2/2014, 1:31 PM
don't know if you guys know the flash pilot is online.
SuperCat - 7/2/2014, 1:32 PM
Always thought the name Reverse-Flash was a bit corny. Prefer Zoom.
marvel72 - 7/2/2014, 1:35 PM
so is constantine,if you're interested.
BatManiac - 7/2/2014, 1:35 PM

@BatManiac
Do you think they will make "eddie" into colbart blue before he reveals that he is barry's twin brother
BatManiac - 7/2/2014, 1:42 PM
Flash & Constantine are the dog's bollocks!

The Flash will do well because of the lowered expectations of the CW. Gotham won't last a season because it has to go against Monday Night Football. Constantine won't do well because it's on Friday nights when normal people go out and have fun.
BatManiac - 7/2/2014, 1:47 PM
@CauseImBatman91939

I'm not too sure. I reckon they'll reveal that Eddie is Barry's brother to the audience before Barry and the rest of the characters though. It will probably be a cliffhanger.
CauseImBatman91939 - 7/2/2014, 1:52 PM
@BatManiac

If this isn't the real Eddie, do you think we will be seeing Eddie in this series or will always just be Wells at reverse flash?
McGee - 7/2/2014, 1:58 PM
Seriously though....I can't wait until BatManiac reviews Gotham when the pilot leaks.

Titanace - 7/2/2014, 2:00 PM
Most anticipated show for me since SHIELD....hope it starts off better.
NovaCorpsFan - 7/2/2014, 2:01 PM
Cam we really call anything new footage after the pilot leaked? Plenty of us saw that, right?
charlie2094 - 7/2/2014, 2:03 PM
Pilot was great! Be great to see him become Reverse-Flash, but...

Doesn't it maybe look like that other guy, Wells (?) could be Zoom instead? They did something similar with Arrow, showing us 'Deathstroke', then later introducing the actual Deathstroke.

Think him being Reverse Flash is too obvious, something else going on.
BatManiac - 7/2/2014, 2:04 PM
@CauseImBatman91939

I'm presuming by real Eddie, you mean the real Reverse Flash? If so, Dr. Well's is without a doubt Eobard Thawne/Reverse Flash, who is the real Reverse Flash. Dr. Well's is an alias, and Cobalt Blue is named Eddie instead of Malcolm to throw people off.
MercwithMouth - 7/2/2014, 2:06 PM
Show looks good. Should be a success, especially on CW. Gotham on the other hand...kill it with fire. And someone please stop JadaFish from 'acting'.
Klone - 7/2/2014, 2:06 PM
If he is Barry's brother then some subtle foreshadowing should be in order and it hopefully serves more of a purpose than to simply be a cheap soap opera twist. I hate the long lost brother/sister twists when they impact nothing and are only empty shocks.
Klone - 7/2/2014, 2:09 PM
Does it constitute as a minor setback if people can already guess who Zoom's identity with hardly any serious and hard theorizing involved?
Klone - 7/2/2014, 2:10 PM
What the [frick] is a Jada Fish?
MercwithMouth - 7/2/2014, 2:13 PM
@Klone

Jada Pinkett-Smith/Fish Mooney...

The JadaFish, the worst known actor on the show...
Klone - 7/2/2014, 2:15 PM
Kill it with something sharp immediately.
joshmosh - 7/2/2014, 2:17 PM
I think that maybe Harrison wells is just Eddie thawne from the future maybe, he may have got his powers from the star labs explosion as well

YIEEYAH

i'm a huge naysayer when it comes to the CW, that being said, I watched the Flash pilot online and was thoroughly impressed. It was fun, tonally appropriate, and even a bit dark where it needed to be.

@marvel72 where is the constantine pilot? hellblazer is close to my heart and i'm a bit worried network television would be the worst way to handle john.
McGee - 7/2/2014, 2:35 PM
@dakotaslim

It is the worst way to handle him. But I was surprised by how much they got right. It's significantly closer to the source material than the Ted "Theodore" Logan movie.
NoPhucksGiven - 7/2/2014, 2:41 PM
i cant wait to see how they handle grodd.
kevberg - 7/2/2014, 2:51 PM
Maybe Wells is Jay Garrick? ..just saying...The future thing felt a bit tooo---in your face--- like they meant to mislead you.
TheTrueBatfleck - 7/2/2014, 2:54 PM
Still believe that Wells is really Zoom from the future. He even sounds like him when he says "Run, Barry run!"
kevberg - 7/2/2014, 3:02 PM
Just saying...Wells was lying about his legs, maybe hes here to help guide Barry because of the crisis or prevent Barrys death. Maybe jay went to the Future accidentally and came back with this info.
Grodd87 - 7/2/2014, 3:08 PM
Wells is zoom his face when he sees the paper does not look like a guy who wants to protect Barry.
antoineflemming - 7/2/2014, 3:25 PM
Nope. Wells is definitely Reverse Flash.
MercSoul - 7/2/2014, 3:53 PM
whats the point of clips of the pilot? i mean....the pilot is in piratebay so...
marvel72 - 7/2/2014, 4:38 PM
@ dakotaslim

torrent room,just type in what you're after & it shall appear.
WinterAvenger - 7/2/2014, 5:31 PM
Oh my god the leaked episode was just great and fantastic plus I loved Arrow cameo
DrunkenNukem - 7/2/2014, 6:32 PM
@BatManiac

"This guy isn't Zoom."
