Watch out iris West fandom.
If the DC comic con has taught me anything it’s that Arrow showrunners/producers(the same people working on The Flash) don’t mind ditching comic canon for what vocal fans want.
You really don’t want your future to be “Season three Barry and Caitlin finally go on their first date”
Iris West is amazing and she must be protected at all cost. And no, Caitlin and Barry don’t need to go on a date. Ever.
LOL, cry more at “the show runners dont respect the comic canon!” especially since you’re whining about Ollie and Dinah, the most unhealthy and awful ship DC has ever given. Gee, I guess she won’t get to punch him and he won’t get to shock her into unconsciousness. And he’ll never get to kidnap her daughter and send her off to live at an orphanage without Dinah’s consent.
Fuck comics and fuck people in comics fandom who thinks that we have to keep retelling the same goddamn unhealthy relationships over and over and over again.
Barry and Iris belong together because they make each other better, and protecting Iris as portrayed by Patton is important because the character is amazing and fandom is racist.
but basically lol at you thinking Ollie and Dinah are a happily ever canon that must be respected. They had a short and miserable marriage where they physically abused each other, and Ollie has been merrily fucking his way across the DC universe before and since then.
"comic canon." lol, go learn yours.
1) Iris West is an American treasure, and I will be damned if the fandom treats her like Laurel on Arrow. You will LOVE Candice Patton as Iris West. They have crazy chemistry, and it makes it harder that they will draw out their relationship before they get together. Which it WILL happen regardless of what people think. Just look at them.
2) For all the people trying to ship Barry X Caitlin,
Just stop okay?
I know she is a cutie pie. I know that she is really smart and geeky like Felicity. I know she actually looks like Iris from the comic. I know that Barry tried to flirt with her in the pilot, but who wouldn’t she’s cute. But there’s also one thing I do know, which is I don’t think you will want to know what kind of person she will be in the future, and Mrs. Allen is not that person. Notice how dark and moody she was, and how she is clearly angry and bitter from her fiance dying? They aren’t making her bubbly and likable for a reason. So end all that Barry x Caitlin talk. Barry will always end up with Iris, just like Clark will end up Lois, & Olllie with Laurel.
3) How good was those special effects for a television show? I’m glad they are going the believable route, instead of the realistic route. They know that the Flash and his powers are ridiculous, and not to be taken seriously. I enjoyed how Weather Wizards tornado looked also.
4) Sweet Lord the Easter eggs. First we get the Gorilla Grodd reference
Then we see them running tests at Ferris AIr, the company that Hal Jordan works for!!!!
Then I literally had a nerdgasm at the newspaper, that pretty much confirms that Bruce Wayne exists in this universe, and a certain “Crisis” happens in ten years.
Then we find out that Barry’s father is eing played by the original Flash actor John Wesley Ship.
Sweet lord that is awesome. The CW has been kicking ass with Arrow, now they have successfully adapted one of the most iconic superheros of all time. Lets get it!!!!
oh man i had no idea his dad was the old flash! that is awesome!
but see i’m so fucked up on how in various shots you can legit just SEE barry and iris’s entire relationship
like tell me they haven’t run off giggling like that a million times before for some little adventure or another after iris has sweet talked her dad into letting barry off the hook for something
there is just this sweetness and such a deep FONDNESS to the way they interact, a way that they light up with each other that so clearly communicates that these are two people who just like each other so much
and oh i am lost
So the Flash Pilot leaked. And you know that Barry Allen and Iris West are my DC babies.
So I watched.OH MY GOD HOW GOOD IS THIS SHOW.
And if I see one more THE FLASH IS FASTER THAN QUICKSILVER BECAUSE HE CAN MANIPULATE TIME WITH HIS SPEED or IS FASTER/AS FAST AS THE SPEED OF LIGHT. QUICKSILVER IS ONLY FASTER/AS FAST AS THE SPEED OF SOUND or w/e it is, I will be very frustrated. Screw DC, man.
SCREW DC AND THEIR BETTER SPEEDSTERS WITH BETTER HAIR!
And the Flash is quicker than Quicksilver. I’m not sure why that should upset anyone. That’s like saying that a lion is a better hunter than a house cat.
It’s not the house cat’s fault that it can’t take down an elephant, bb. Nobody blames the house cat for its inferiority.
i love when people reblog xmen dofp and specifically peter maximoff (talk about whitewashing more blatantly), it means i can unfollow them
Someone was talking about how there was no way that the Flash TV series could do better than Quicksilver in DOFP, and I side-eyed so muh.
it’s gonna slay, already casting iris west as a black woman was one of the greatest things they could have and they are gonna keep a happier tone with those series as is only right for lil barry, and the costuming department is not looking to fuck it up with the worst wig i have ever seen in the history of humanity
Iris looks so amazing and so does the guy who I think is supposed to be her dad. I ship it already and I can’t wait for the show to start.
And all the happy that the trailers have had. :) It’s everything missing from the DC movies and I will basically be ridiculously happy when it starts.
