(As you may be able to tell, I have lost all ability to mask my disdain at all things DC movie universe. But on with the article… )
Ezra Miller (“The Perks of Being a Wallflower”) has been cast as the Flash for an appearance in “Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice,” but it is still unknown as to what capacity we will be seeing any of the second tier JLA-ers in. Miller’s casting also has led some non-disillusioned fans to speculate as to which of the men to bear the mantle of the Flash he will be playing.
With the pilot episode aired and encored, there’s not a huge amount of stuff to delve into for this budding superhero series. We do, however, have some shots from the set of a future episode, featuring a throwing between the Flash and longtime nemesis Professor Zoom. For those who don’t know, Professor Zoom is sort of the Anti-Flash, meaning that he’s like an evil version, not that he’s completely the opposite and has three-toed-sloth-based-powers or something like that.
But, even if you didn’t know that, you might have gotten it from context clues in the following photos.
In a new clip and interview from CW’s The Flash shows Barry Allen getting friendzoned.
Poor Barry, looks like he is going to be suffering from the usual unrequited love that all the superheros seem to go through. I will admit this probably the first thing I have seen that does not make me want to watch the show. I think I am starting to get bored with the superhero pinning away for the girl from afar. All of DC superheros do it, I am beginning to think that it must be a written rule for all DC characters, the superhero cannot have the girl he must pin away from afar. With any luck they will at least the make the story interesting around these two like they did with Oliver Queen and Laurel Lance in Arrow. At least with that one I understood why he had to pin away because well Laurel hated him, with a legit reason. With any luck Iris actually likes Barry as well and is just to afraid to ruin their friendship.
What do you think of Barry getting friendzoned? What do you think of all the DC superheros always pinning away.
CW’s The Flash has added another character to the show; Patrick Sabongui will be playing Captain David Singh. Captain Singh is the director of the Central City crime lab, which is where Barry Allen works. In the comics, Captain Singh is not a huge fan of Barry Allen; the Captain was forced to hire Barry Allen. The role looks to be a potentially occurring one, if the series is picked up. It look like we might be seeing Sabongui’s character in pilot episode.
A promo image has emerged revealing the Flash’s full costume for the upcoming CW solo series. A textured fabric covers the body, which seems like it would actually create drag… Plus armoured bits appear to cover the wrists, the head, and parts of the chest, back, thighs, and calves.
Overall, though, it does stick to the classic Flash red and yellow. Just with that now cliche DC movie superhero costume flair.
What do you think?
Personally… Those gloves look ill-fitted and his shoes look oddly soft.
We’ll post updates as better quality and fuller pictures emerge.
