With new series based on DC Entertainment's The Flash, John Constantine and Batman just weeks away from launching — in addition to the third season of the CW's Arrow — newcomers might be wondering how best to prepare for this onsl
The CW has unveiled the official poster for The Flash.
Unveiled Tuesday, the new key art for The CW's Arrow spinoff features Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) in his red suit zipping through a darkened Central City street with a lightning streak behind him and several Easter eggs. (Can you spot all 10?) The new tagline, "Discover what makes a hero," hints at Barry's journey to becoming a superhero.
Arrow is introducing another DC Comics character — and he'll have strong ties to Diggle.
Medium star David Cubitt, who played Detective Lee Scanlon on the CBS procedural, has landed a meaty guest role in the CW comic-book drama's third season as Mark Shaw, who becomes Manhunter,The Hollywood Reporterhas learned. Cubitt is slated to appear in the third episode.
One of fall's flashiest shows is setting the bar high.
The CW's The Flash, a spinoff of the darker and broodier Arrow, takes a lighter spin with Barry Allen, the awkward Central City Police Department forensics expert so enthralled with the Arrow that he'd proclaim himself a fanboy. The change in tone was inevitable. As Arrow viewers glimpsed last fall during the two-hour Barry Allen arc, the man who would don the red suit had a more lively approach to life.
Arrow is focusing on identity in season three, and Oliver Queen won't be the only one dealing with issues of internal strife.
"If season one was about Oliver going from vengeance to vigilante and season two was vigilante to hero, season three is about identity," executive producer Marc Guggenheim tells The Hollywood Reporter. "It's the first season where this theme of identity is not only about Oliver but is also about all the other characters."
It's a natural progression for The CW comic book drama, which has broadened its focus beyond the titular superhero over the past two seasons as it continues to expand its universe. "It has become an ensemble where it's not just about the Arrow," Guggenheim says. "It feels appropriate that we'll have a theme that will resonate with the whole group."
Guggenheim, along with executive producer Andrew Kreisberg, previews season three — which picks up six months after the season-two finale — with THR.
