    When they mentioned three separate shows, I was excited about a cross network crossover. I though maybe we'd see a team up between Flash and Supergirl or heck even Flash and Jim Gordon.

    There was literally no new information in this video except that Grant Gustin likes being the Flash...which is good and all, but why did we need a one minute update to remind us of that?

    I don't know if its an intentional move, but starting this flash season with Jay Garrick crossing dimensions lays the groundwork for mixing the CW verse with every other DC television property without them needing to make them all operate in the same universe. Once the concept of a multiverse is created, you could even have Nightwing from Titans team up with Bruce Wayne from Gotham without having any continuity errors.

    Fun potential. I suppose we should keep our expectations subdued. We comic book fans are already getting more service than I ever would have dreamed.

    gotham is never allowing Bruce to get to the age becoming Batman, it might just be like smallville

    @mak13131313: My dad didn't see them when they originally aired, so I'm watching them with him every couple of weeks off the CW's website. So, similar situation, and I'm really enjoying the re-watches too.

    They chose the perfect man for Flash.

    Grant is great as Barry. he brings this youthful energy to character that could've come off very stuffy (sorry I like Barry, but he's Wally has always been my favorite Flash), and I really like the way he plays him. he has all the sense of responsibility but the youthful exuberance toward life and his abilities and that positive attitude just makes him shine.

    Love the vixen web-series so far, and I really hope she transitions into the new season at some point. I actually would rather her get a full on animated show, and have her pop up in the live action shows as a guest star.
