While the series is only two episodes in, The Flash has done a good job of getting the audience familiar with its main characters...with one huge exception: Eddie Thawne. Eddie is still being kept a mystery, and actor Rick Cosnett says that over this season, the show will delve into the mystery of who Eddie Thawne is, and if the comics are any indication, it could be a doozy!
While DC Comics builds slowly builds their movie universe, Arrow and The Flash are wasting no time in joining forces.

No, we’re not kidding. Warner Bros. TV, DC Entertainment and The CW are in talks to bring a third DC Comics character to the network.
To say that last night’s premiere of The Flash was successful is an understatement. The pilot performed extremely well, earning many positive reviews and was watched by 4.5 million total viewers.

With the rise of superhero programming on network television, there was bound to be one night where Marvel and D.C. offerings would compete. That night finally came on Tuesday, when ABC aired an episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and The CW aired the very first episode of its new drama The Flash.
The CW has a surprisingly good track-record adapting super-shows and The Flash should also be a quick hit. Bright, colorful and fun, it's the daylight to Arrow's dark night.
If there’s one thing the Flash is know for besides his impressive speed, it’s his colorful rogues gallery.

This week, the network announced it has ordered additional scripts for the upcoming shows The Flash and Jane the Virgin.
