Now for a few details about Arrow‘s spinoff, The Flash. During a recent Flash Q&A, the cast answered questions about a couple of the series’ upcoming developments. The first being – will Barry and Felicity be continuing their budding romance?

As if it wasn’t already a given considering Felicity is expected to appear on The Flash, it’s now been confirmed. Though actress Candice Patton implies that her character, Iris West, won’t be making it all that easy for Felicity and Barry.

There was also a question about whether or not time travel – a common theme from many of a Flash adventure – will play a part in the series. Producer Greg Berlanti seems to imply that it will, mentioning that the pilot includes a “shout-out to that kind of thing,” and that they “don’t really do anything that they don’t try and sort of continue or payoff.”

So, yes? Seems we’ll need to first see the pilot to know for sure what ‘kind of thing’ it is. You can watch the full fan Q&A here.

What do you think Arrow‘s episode 4 title – “The Magician” – could be referring to? And will something as fantastical as time travel really make its way onto The Flash? Tell us what you think in the comments below!

The Flash premieres Tuesday, October 7th @8pm on The CW.

  1. Zatan-ahhhhh…..

    • Hilarious.

  2. An focused episode about Malcolm Merlyn would be amazing. I bet it’ll deal the present time with Thea and also like Arrow’s flashbacks with Oliver, we’re going to see into Malcolm’s past on his journey with The League of Assassins.

    As for time-travel in The Flash, I hope we see that, but not a lot of it. I can see them do a Flashpoint-esque story arc. Two episode event for both shows if possible.

    • A sort of semi-Flashpoint adaptation would be awesome, and it’d be a great crossover event too, but it sounds more like a down-the-line sort of idea to me – maybe season 2 or 3?

  3. I’m pretty sure that anything time travel related will have to do with Professor Zoom/Reverse Flash.

  4. I was about to say that Sara’s name in the League was The Canary so Malcolm’s could’ve been The Magician……. then i read the last paragraph :( LOL

  5. So what, Thea will go from moping brat to Hit-Girl from now on?

  6. Also i’m wondering since we went from a guy shooting a bow to guys who can break a wall with their fists and then to a guy who runs super fast and guys who control the weather and time travel, would the show(s)runners be willing to introduce extraterrestrials even on a small scale like Martian Manhunter appearing as a detective in Starling City?

    • CSI: Martian Manhunter :P


  7. Not to go a little weird here, but what if she became Cheshire? I know Cheshire isn’t related to Oliver or Malcolm, but it would make sense with the Roy Harper relationship. Just a thought.

    • Cheshire? Now that would be “The cat’s pajamas”! (Gives a BIG grin!!)……See what I did there?

  8. I know this may seem like a stretch but what if Thea is the Arrow version of Cheshire? With her relationship with Roy I think it’s at least an idea.

  9. Oliver’s nickname for Thea is Speedy…

    Perhaps they are going to split Speedy and Arsenal from the comics into two characters in the show.

    Then again, the Cheshire theory would be pretty cool too…

  10. I wish they introduce Zatanna, maybe in Constantine. But I would love it if in the future she appears on Arrow or The Flash. I really liked Serinda Swan’s Zatanna in Smallville, so maybe recast her. She can even appear as a kid on Gotham with Zatarra (kidding)

    • Kidding, just for the last part.

  11. Even from just watching the Flash pilot trailer- you can see Zoom fighting with a red blur as young Barry watches.

    Of course the show will have ‘time travel’.

    • Also, doesn’t the end scene if the pilot blatantly display that time travel is part of the show. I won’t spoil anything but it’s 100% there.

  12. Abra Kadabra.
