And the crossover episodes will almost certainly be in a Sweeps period. They will likely want to have them cross over relatively soon, once Barry's powers are fully established.

Very cool but his suit looks like he's wearing pajamas.

I was thinking how Flash in this universe makes Arrow obsolete while watching it.

Don't worry, Oliver can just use a Particle Decelerator Arrow if he wants to even the playing field.

Gonna take The Originals Tuesday at 8pm slot before Supernatural. Would have been interesting to see it head to head with Agents of Shield but they moved it back an hour I think.

I have a feeling that Oliver Queen is going to get his own form of supercharging ala Speedy next season.

Ah, great stuff. Much better than the previous one. Reverse Flash and Weather Wizard so far.

Yep, looks great and DC/Warner sure as hell better incorporate him, and to lesser extent Arrow, into the Justice League movie.

Phantom Stranger posted in another thread that the going rumor was that Warner was thinking of replacing Flash with Shazam (Captain Marvel) in the upcoming JL movie.

The metahuman stuff seems a little bit like the meteorite villains with Smallville, so hopefully it doesn't get that boring and cheesy. Otherwise the effects and look of the show seem pretty good.

Looks awesome.

Of course Ollie appears in the Pilot.

That's my biggest fear too. Hopefully they keep it mostly to Flash's rogue gallery.

I've been trying to keep my expectations low for this, but that trailer looks pretty awesome.

This would make way too much sense, so of course they won't do that. This show looks freaking awesome though!!

It looks like they put a ton of money into the pilot, I'm pretty happy with how his running FX appears. I do wish they had dyed his hair blonde.

I can't wait to see how they incorporate the Turtle on the show. I wonder how they will approach time travel, that is a pretty essential part of the character and his stories?

GA is "Batman Like", so I could easily see a crossover. GA will use some kind of detective work to find out something going on in his city and Flash's.
-GA can use an special arrow that dissolve some gue that is holding The Flash's feet from moving.

Re: CW’s ‘The Flash’ To Do Stand-Alone Pilot Instead Of ‘Arrow’ Backdoor Pilot Episod

I am beyond giddy in expectation for this show.

Looks like they have done the show right, or at least spent on ton on the Pilot.

Read the Flash comic throughout the 70's, Barry's death in the early 80's was very shocking to me.
-Not sure how I feel about Iris at this point, I have a picture of her in my mind of her being his wife not girlfriend. This is almost a Kid Flash instead of The Flash. (Flash was an adult man that was married in my mind).
-Looks like Iris does not know his Secret Identity
