    The Flash\Barry Allen discussion thread (spoilerish potential)

    So Barry Allen (pre-Flash) is now on Arrow. As of right now I don't know where his character is going, but I presume he lost his job in and he now knows Oliver's secret identity so maybe he'll join the team. I'm wondering if he'll eventually become The Flash on the show and become a recurring character to some extent or if The CW is levering this to start a spin-off with some crossover potential. I've always like The Flash as I enjoy his humor, rarely serious beta male style of superhero compared to your more typical serious, tough guy, alpha male superhero (Green Arrow, Batman, Superman...)

    We'll see I guess.

    Little searching found some actual information. Spoilerish info below, no major reveals.

    There has been a change in the CW‘s plans for The Flash. Originally, the character, played by Grant Gustin, was supposed to appear in three episodes of Arrow this season — No. 8, No. 9 and No. 20, the last one serving as a backdoor pilot directed by David Nutter. Episodes 8 and 9, in which the superhero is introduced only as his alter ego Barry Allen, have already been shot. But now the CW has opted to film a traditional stand-alone Flash pilot instead of doing a backdoor pilot...

        I think I would have preferred having him as part of the show for a season or more before the spin-off, but the Flash show sounds cool!

          Agreed and I agree with Spimman's suggestion of having him on the show longer. I really can't tell if the actor is leading man material. But we'll see.

            I would have liked to see more of him first on Arrow as well. But I have faith in their plans for this Flash show. I really want it to succeed like Arrow has.

              I agree, it could be a really awesome show. The CW has a niche market and seems to be doing well in it. I do hope that the two separate shows have somewhat regular cross-overs since they exist within the same universe.

                I would like to see him stay on arrow till the end of this season, then get his own.

                    You are correct, although we saw the storm and chemical accident that causes it. I don't guess we'll see that until the pilot, which will now be independent of Arrow so they'll likely redo the entire thing from the beginning with a few changes.

                      That sucks.. Anyone got a possible release date for when the 'flash' comes out on its own?

                            Watched the leaked pilot of Flash, it was pretty good. Guy playing Barry sells it well enough. The end bit was wacky though because of potential implications despite slight villain changes.

                              A word too about The Flash (CW),while I'm here!
                              The pilot episode was leaked a week or so ago,so no links to/requests for other means will be tolerated.That applies to VM/posts/Group messages etc.
                              Tag any spoilers.
