News! Flash…Gets His Own Pilot
Speedy superhero Flash was all set to get his own backdoor pilot show as part of the current “Arrow” television series on the CW network – introducing his alter ego, Barry Allen, in earlier episodes and then essentially using Arrow’s 20th episode as a pilot episode. But now, CW has elected to make a singular pilot episode for The Flash, who is played by Grant Gustin. In the upcoming episodes, Gustin plays Allen, who is a forensics assistant who comes into contact with Oliver/Arrow while working on a case and their superhero paths begin to reveal their crossings.
The Flash-infused eighth and ninth episodes of “Arrow” are currently scheduled to air on December 4 and 11, 2013, respectively while the 20th episode – with or without a Flash reference – is expected to be aired in April 2014.
