Oh I agree, just thought I'd point that out.
I'll get over it since this is still an interesting addition to a live-action universe.
Link to Tucker's FB?
I think you guys are misinterpreting Guggenheim's response on Tumblr. I'm pretty sure it's going to be 6 episodes with a length of 5 minutes each. Total, 30 minutes. Almost the length of an episode of Arrow/Flash. In this case, a pilot episode.
Me neither. How am I supposed to watch those seasons? Alternately one episode of Arrow and one of Flash? And do I have to watch Flash if I want to know what's going on in in Arrow?
And should I first watch those seasons before watching Vixen?
This is quite complicated...
I haven't watched all of Season 3 of Arrow and I've watched a lot but not all of Season 1 of Flash. I will say you should watch Seasons 1& 2 of Arrow if you haven't already. Then watch Flash and Season 3 of Arrow back and forth, cause they will crossover. By back and forth I mean (at least this is what I would do) watch one episode of each series in a sequential order:
Flash episode 1
Arrow Season 3 episode 1
Flash episode 2
Arrow Season 3 episode 2
I assume you may have already seen Arrow 1 & 2, so start the aforementioned way if you like.
Anyways, just saw the trailer earlier. Looking good. Looks like we have a villain of sorts, anyone know her? Also, yeah Cisco and Vixen matchup.
That's pretty much the correct order to watch these shows. Basically check an episode list (Wikipedia or anywhere else) and get the air-dates for the episodes of both shows, and then watch in that order. There were times when Arrow had a week or so hiatus, but the Flash didn't. For the first few episodes it doesn't really matter, but around episode 8 it gets a lot harder to keep track of. The action is supposed to take place in real time, so it gets kind of confusing at times. And yeah, seasons 1&2 of Arrow should definitely be watched before all this.
Not sure where Vixen falls into all this. I guess we'll know for sure when it debuts. I'm not really familiar with Vixen's rogues gallery from the comics so I have no idea who the villains could be. Unless they go and make up an original character for the show.
Based on her garb, I kinda hope the villainess is Queen Bee. Could be just some generic character made for this, but . . .
Some episodes aired out of order, so going by the official air dates will screw up continuity.
Here's a list with the correct order: https://flash-arrow-order.herokuapp.com/
Can't get a link (one has to be a friend of JT), but I have a screenshot (with everyone blacked out except for James' posts:
I wonder how the DVD releases of Arrow S3 and Flash S1 will look like... It's basically one big season, so it would be better if it was just one big DVD box.
7/12:Thank you! Appreciate it.
7/14: Okay, I tweeted Tucker and he confirmed each episode is 5 minutes long.
Nice to finally have confirmation on that. I'm still looking forward to the show, either way. It would have been nice if the episodes were longer but it's still better than nothing.
Also realized that if the episodes are released weekly, the show will finish its run one week before the new seasons of Flash and Arrow start.
Well, here's hoping those five minutes are used as effectively as possible .
Oh well, I'll be watching regardless.
Phil Bourassa posted promo art he did for SDCC with help from background paint extraordinaire Bill Dunn.
It's too bad it will only be one 30 minute story, but hopefully it'll still be good. I'm a big fan of both Flash and Arrow, so I want this to be a success as well. I also really like Vixen as a character, I can thank JLU for that.
You don't like James Tucker?
I probably need to watch/re-watch some of his ep on the DC shows, but he is easily among my worst DTV directors. Plus, he has been the one in charge of the current DC animated era, which is miraculously looking up.
Way too short. Would have preferred they do a dtv instead. Maybe use some false advertising to pretend Flash and Arrow were the star attractions in order to get more people to buy.
I'll still watch it regardless but I'm disappointed.
I'm pretty sure Guggenheim said it will be like a pilot episode, from the start when it was announced. At most it would have been 40-42 minutes.
