Hope this is the right thread to post this. It's a short article with a few pictures from the set, taken this week. I should add a spoiler-warning for those who do not want to know anything at all about season 4 as a villain is mentioned.

We fixed the problem with the gallery - now you should be able to enlarge the pics. Sorry about that.

I'm not crazy about Keiynan replacing Grant as the main flash no matter what suit he wears. Grant can't be replaced.
It's a bit before my time, but from what I understand that's largely the way people felt when Wally took over for Barry in the books, too. But given time the character was able to prove himself.

This is a bit different, because we know Grant is coming back. I'm still stoked to let Wally have a brief chance to shine without Barry around to be his training wheels. After all, we've never seen Wally do much of anything without Barry there to guide him. (Not counting Flashpoint, because that's a whole alternate timeline where Wally was the only Flash.)

Interesting that they didn't actually show them retrieving Barry...or the face of the red-clad Flash.

Pretty good trailer, I liked what we saw of Cisco and Iris, Frosty is looking sexy and badass and the Samurai was awesome!

That trailer really didn't do anything for me. Didn't get me pumped to watch this season unfortunately, which is something I was hoping for since this pas season was kind of lackluster. The season 3 trailer was leagues better, and even the crappy stock footage season 2 trailer left me far more intrigued.

It's going to be hard investing in the show without Barry.

Wasn't expecting Baron Katana.

The sooner they get past this 'Barry is gone' crap, the better. I was most excited by (what appeared to be) the future Flash suit. Of course, whomever they pull out of the Speed Force won't be Barry... or at least, not Barry as they'd expect him to be. Gotta spend a number of episodes with inconsequential and obvious meandering. Woo.

Jesus, I've become cynical in regards to this show.

Iris leading the team to stop herself from falling apart over losing Barry... expected that would be the case when it was announced she was going to be running the team.

No Julian or Wells from what i saw....

So as Arrow became the Felicity show in season 4, Flash becomes the Iris show in season 4.

There's a very big key difference.

Felicity was a deus ex. She was not only the focus of the show, but she was the answer to solve everyone's problems in every episode. She overshadowed the hero, when it came to heroics.

Iris leading a team, or in this case simply being dispatch while Wells and Julian are gone, and it appears Cisco and Wally and crew will be in the field seems to make sense to me.

It doesn't become "the Iris" show, but perhaps it gives her something to do, besides just sit around and wait to die. As per last season.

I'm just happy that Caitlin is back, and not-evil. Hopefully she looks normal because she's learned to control her powers, and so doesn't have to be icy unless she wants to.

Actually Season 3 was all about Iris and WestAllen, so this would be the Iris and westallen show part 2. Which will be a snooze fest, not many are excited about the fact that the least developed character is now considered equal to Flash himself. This is most definitely ripped from Arrow. Just waiting for the train wreck to end already.

They aren't really subtle with their shoehorning are they?

I'm curious to know who exactly is that Caitlin? Is she from a different Earth? I get the feeling it's a decoy or something Cisco found like with HR. They need to explain why her hair isn't platinum blonde anymore.

your right.i don't think this is second caitlin.they won't take time away from iris to give danielle 2 roles to play.

They could have iris throw herself into her socalled carrer as reporter.wally work mostly alone as flash and cisco have to reach caitlin to try to work with him and harry to get barry back but no it has to be all about iris.

Lol season 3 was about the death of Iris West but it wasn't about Iris herself. She barely got anything to do and even in the end it was about Barry. Cisco and Caitlin got more to do then Iris did.

That's the point, her relationship with Barry was the main arc, and it was everywhere in each episode. Not her journalism or anything else that makes the character the same from the comics.

The dynamic between team flash as whole was severed due to Barry being in a relationship with Iris and stalking her in Flashpoint. This is clear as day.

The relationship is not the problem. Focusing ONLY on the relationship is the problem. If you want to show a three dimensional character, you need to see them independent of their significant other.

I'd even go as far as to say Iris' death was more of a focus than anything to do with their relationship or her character. Barry proposing and all that nonsense was all to try and avoid her death.

It will be nice to get some scenes where Iris isn't a damsel in distress. Which is essentially what 90% of the last season amounted to. Have her working, or on the coms while people are fighting crime, or even just hanging out with characters other than Barry.

At least give me the allusion that this character has a life.
