ARROW Producer Reveals When They Start Shooting THE FLASH's Small Screen Debut

With some claiming that Warner Bros. and the CW will begin testing actors for the role of Dr. Barry Allen/The Flash over the next week or two, Arrow executive producer Andrew Kreisberg has told Entertainment Weekly when exactly they are planning on shooting his first appearance in the series. "We’ll have to have somebody by Sept. 30, which is when we start shooting [his first] episode. So there is that timeline. But it’s been a really exciting process just getting to meet so many fantastic actors and seeing the enthusiasm that so many people around town have for the character. It’s just amazing — I have pictures of myself at age 4 holding a Flash and a Superman doll. That I’m sitting here writing the Flash and Green Arrow now, it’s more than my little nerd heart can bear sometimes." On second thoughts, it sounds as if they've already been meeting with some actors! Whether they go for a complete unknown or someone we're at least a little familiar with remains to be seen, as does the possibility of the planned series taking place in the DC Cinematic Universe. Be sure to stay tuned to CBM for updates!

I think the inclusion of Flash confirms Arrow is set in the DCCU.
avengers72 - 9/4/2013, 1:46 PM
I agree with Nova
Superior - 9/4/2013, 1:51 PM
I'm against the Arrow and DCCU connection.
StrangeBlackPantherDoctor - 9/4/2013, 1:51 PM
I concur as well.
SmellofDuty - 9/4/2013, 1:54 PM
Nova is accurate.
kenjim152 - 9/4/2013, 1:55 PM
@Marauder give it a second thought, if arrow is in the DCCU, no need to introduce him, just have him show up at the end of the movie right there in the clímax and BOOM there goes the dynamite!!! Isn't it great?????
Greengo - 9/4/2013, 1:55 PM
lol awww his poor little nerd heart : )


This episode airs late nov early dec right?

We should be getting some quality cg...

They're not rushing this at all!!!!

Arrow and Flash are in the Man of Steel Universe.
DioFoRio - 9/4/2013, 1:57 PM
It's a tv show..on basic..what do some of ya'll expect? Some of you ding dongs are [frick]ing retarded.
BANEofExistence - 9/4/2013, 1:58 PM
This series bette rnot be the same as The DCCU.... Man of Steel was the start to the universe not a tv series...
RyGoR - 9/4/2013, 1:58 PM
I've never watched arrow but I'm gonna start today I saw season 2 trailer looked pretty good and everyone tells me it's awesome sooooo imma check it out


Btw a flash show will be ahhhhhhmazing :)
SoundWave - 9/4/2013, 1:59 PM
So... WHO PLAYS FLASH? When they will anounce the actor??
Jhuntdaprodigy - 9/4/2013, 2:03 PM
Jensen Ackles would make a great Flash if he wasn't busy shooting Supernatural. Season 1 of The Flash will probably run concurrently with Supernatural Season 10. Anyway, there's plenty of actors that could pull it off, it's a whose who as far as guessing who they'll cast. It might be an unknown (shrugs).
jimoakley666 - 9/4/2013, 2:03 PM
Love the artwork in this article.
FOOM - 9/4/2013, 2:05 PM
If they turn down his ridiculously over amped powers then they might be on to something.
GUNSMITH - 9/4/2013, 2:05 PM
PLEASE GET THE COSTUME RIGHT, PLEASE DO A FLASH FANS WANNA SEE.
NovaCorpsFan - 9/4/2013, 2:06 PM
Shocked I got so many agreements there.
SuperHamm - 9/4/2013, 2:06 PM
My guess is they would have to cast someone in the next week or 2 max. There's costume fittings and a script to memorize, etc.
JoeMomma29 - 9/4/2013, 2:07 PM
Frick you haters..... I am excited for this.
McNyagano - 9/4/2013, 2:07 PM
Instead of giving Flash his own movie, he has to start off in a television series??? To WB I say this:


GUNSMITH - 9/4/2013, 2:08 PM
THE MASK THEY DID WAS PRETTY SWEET ON THIS GUY....

Nubase - 9/4/2013, 2:12 PM
this episode will be one of the most watched on tv, they will hype this up big time
Jhuntdaprodigy - 9/4/2013, 2:17 PM
@BlackLanternFroggy

That is a sick ass photoshop, and now that you mention it, he would be a good Hal as well. Main reason I said Flash is because Ackles already has CW ties, and he's one of the more famous actors on that network. I know he said he wanted to be Batman in that one article before Batfleck, and I wasn't opposed. He would be a much better Hal though I'll admit.
DJRock93 - 9/4/2013, 2:21 PM
Honestly though, why does Slade/Deathstroke look like crap? One of the coolest characters out there. Hopefully he'll get an amazing costume soon, especially if Flash is debuting, and ESPECIALLY if they're including all of this in the DCCU. I can see why he got the short end of the stick when they were avoiding all the 'fanastical' stuff, but now that they've thrown that out the window, it's time to beef up everyone's gear
VIRILEMAN - 9/4/2013, 2:31 PM
Tv show and no movie. Shows WB has no convidence in their characters.
soforizo - 9/4/2013, 2:38 PM
@McNyagano

Got lost on your way to a Marvel article again?

Flash will be getting his own movie, and personally I'm far more excited seeing him 20 times or so in a tv series every year, versus seeing him once every 2 to 3 years at most in a movie.
GranGoose - 9/4/2013, 2:43 PM
Did he say dolls?
tacobender - 9/4/2013, 2:43 PM
I can't wait for season 2 to start and I wanna see who's gonna play the Flash. Let's see if they go for a big(ger than Amell) name actor. And I'd like to see Arrow in JL and Felicity become Oracle.
SuperJoe - 9/4/2013, 2:43 PM
Lol 1984
Nikolau1 - 9/4/2013, 2:54 PM
Aaron Paul for The Flash!
TheFox - 9/4/2013, 3:00 PM
Cool! So by the end of the month, we should have our new T.V. Barry Allen!

Sorry, John Wesley Shipp... but you had a good run.

(Hahaha-- get it? "Run"? Oh, I kill me.)

Nikolau1 - 9/4/2013, 3:01 PM
@yaboi

I agree.
DJRock93 - 9/4/2013, 3:06 PM
@Froggy

Idk, Dc (WB) seems to be very reactive, not so much proactive. Not saying that this was, but WB hasn't exactly set the standard for anything (except MAYBE TDK)
englandlover77 - 9/4/2013, 3:09 PM
There's barely even a DCCU
Spidey91 - 9/4/2013, 3:18 PM
movie or GTFO
DelTorite - 9/4/2013, 3:18 PM
Frick these shitty TV series. Grow some balls, WB and make a Flash movie.
ScottMontgomery - 9/4/2013, 3:22 PM
So basically there is no hope for the DCCU?
marvel72 - 9/4/2013, 3:29 PM
@ soforizo

when & where was it announced that the flash was/is getting a movie? it was a rumor started around comic con.
MurrayTheCop - 9/4/2013, 3:39 PM
"I have pictures of myself at age 4 holding a Flash and a Superman doll."...

They're not dolls!! They're action figures!
Hope they do the Flash some justice
