Comic book fans around the world were excited to learn that DC were bringing The Flash to television screens, with a new The Flash television series. The Flash will first appear in an episode of Arrow season two and it has now been confirmed that the actor to play The Flash will be announced before September 30.
Arrow producer Andrew Kreisberg told Entertainment Weekly, "We’ll have to have somebody by Sept. 30, which is when we start shooting [his first] episode. So there is that timeline. But it’s been a really exciting process just getting to meet so many fantastic actors and seeing the enthusiasm that so many people around town have for the character."
He added, "It’s just amazing — I have pictures of myself at age 4 holding a Flash and a Superman doll. That I’m sitting here writing the Flash and Green Arrow now, it’s more than my little nerd heart can bear sometimes."
Arrow stars Stephen Amell as Oliver Queen, aka Green Arrow, and you can catch him, along with the rest of the Arrow cast, when Arrow season two premieres on The CW on October 9. The show will air on Sky1 in the UK.
