A Prison Break reunion is coming to TV — on The Flash, that is.
Dominic Purcell has boarded The CW comic-book drama as a DC Comics villain, reuniting with his Prison Break co-star Wentworth Miller in the 10th episode, The Hollywood Reporter has learned. This marks the first time Purcell and Miller, who played brothers Lincoln Burrows and Michael Scofield, will have appeared together since Prison Break ended in 2009.
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.

The Flash star Grant Gustin isn't letting expectations get the best of him.
The 24-year-old Virginia native was admittedly "surprised" when he got the call that he would be The CW's Barry Allen. "I let myself feel the pressure a little bit because I wanted to live up to The Flash and make the fans happy," Gustin, a self-proclaimed Superman fan, tells The Hollywood Reporter.
Known primarily for his Glee arc as disdained Dalton Warbler Sebastian Smythe, Gustin had reservations diving headfirst into an iconic character with deep DC roots. "My Glee experience taught me — to a certain degree — not to listen too much to fan backlash, at least to negative things. Once you have the job, you have the job and you've got to do it," he says.
An army's worth of DC superheroes invaded Hall H Saturday night.
Fans were treated to screenings of the pilots for The CW's TheFlash, Fox's Gotham and a new trailer of NBC's Constantine. There was also 15 seconds of new footage from The CW's Arrow season three. (See the Arrow footage here.)
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.
Prison Break alum Wentworth Miller is heading to Central City.
The Flash has booked Miller in the guest role of Leonard Snart, aka Captain Cold, on The CW's Arrow spinoff, executive producer Greg Berlanti announced Friday during the summer Television Critics Association press tour.
The CW has unveiled its lineup for the 2014-15 season, renewing Beauty and the Beast, Hart of Dixie and freshman The 100 and picking up to series its Arrow spinoff The Flash, Rob Thomas' iZombie, Jane the Virgin and The Messengers. Bubble series The Carrie Diaries and rookies Star-Crossed and The Tomorrow People have been canceled. Remaining pilots Identity and Supernatural spinoff Bloodlines are not going forward.
