    To be fair, being the lead on a CW series isn't a huge statement about your versatility as an actor. The smart thing to do is build your fanbase with your tv series and appearing in films on the side (either aimed at your fan demo or playing against type).

    Unfortunately, most get very few opportunities. Gustin seems a decent actor. Hope he can escape the typecasting. Being The Flash for 10 years will build up his $$$, but it's hard after. Look at Tom Welling. Though for him, he was just a model who fell into the job.

    Grant doesn’t seem to be actively seeking out other parts like Melissa. Grant is a fine actor and singer but he doesn’t have Broadway producers calling to figure out how he can fit in staring in their show during summer break. Melissa is IMO the strongest lead acting wise on CW.

    She certainly is activity seeking out roles different from Supergirl. Patriots Day, Waco, Sun Dogs (which is on Netflix), Lowriders. Not to mention she’s staring as Carole King on Broadway to rave reviews. Her run in Beautiful-The Carole King Musical is sold out, at least some her new Broadway fans will follow her to TV. Of all the Arrowverse leads she’s the one who won’t have a bit of trouble finding work when Supergirl eventually ends.

    Very Very smart on her part. Diversifying her resume. It'll keep her getting jobs once Supergirl ends in a few years.

    I've thought for a while now that if Supergirl ever appears in the DCEU I think Benoist could play her and hold her own opposite Cavill, Affleck, and Gadot. Not that I think they would cast her for the big-screen version of the character, but if they did I could actually see her making it work.

    A comment I made in the 4x23 page made me realize something. Now I've said before I don't like the team aspect and it still sands. While I'm thinking about it, Barry and Iris have suffered the most from having a team on the show.

    We know why Barry suffers- he's severely nerfed, gets dumb down, and has scientists explaining to him HIS own power. Okay, we know this.

    Here's how I think Iris suffers from the show having a team.

    We know this show is Barry's story, but the female lead should have her own story right? Iris could have had that with her journalism. However, we couldn't get that.

    AJK is the one who was all for the team. I swear that man did an interview and talked about he wanted the team aspect to be like Buffy. Honestly, you can tell he clearly care more about the non-flash comic book characters than the actual ones.

    Iris fans were promised a journalism story back in season 2. Clearly that didn't happen. This was the first season where Iris was in Star Labs majority of the time. I like Iris, but I want a journalism story for her. Season 2-3, besides Barry being dumbed down, I notice how much the team aspect was hurting her character. Whomever was in charge (AJK) clearly liked writing the team more.

    Then came season 4. While I'm glad her being leader gave her more agency, I wanted her journalism story. I know the show has a budget, but boy was this the season that the team hurt her the most. They literally got rid of her own set-CCPN. Just got rid of it. We didn't even see it not once. Iris lost her own set just to accommodate Star Labs/team flash. Hell, Candice didn't even know if Iris was a journalist for most of the season. Its just ugh....

    I have no confidence going into season 5. I know they said they're doing pair offs, but the team is still there. Barry will continue to be told what to do. I want to have faith for Iris journalism, but I'm just not confident.

    But Season 5 is going to be ****e! :oldrazz:

    I suppose, for a change, the season will open with Barry being present without previous season consequences. Barry wont be a recluse, there wont be no new timelines, and he wont be missing. He'll be there in high spirits (though admittedly, confused having just met his daughter).

    I do wonder whether there's going to be a time jump between the end of S4 and the beginning of S5 too; six months or so? They're going to have to detail the whole Nora Allen II stuff. I wonder whether [some of it] will be in the flashback sense.

    I'm further intrigued as to whether Nora II will be in the crossover, and the reaction Ollie, Diggle, Kara (and co) will have to meeting Barry's future daughter.

    So it's Killer Frost's time to flex her directing powers. Turns out that Danielle Panabaker will be getting behind the camera for an episode in the upcoming season.

    That logo on her costume looks suspiciously like an adapted Legion of Superheroes logo...

    Flash Ring! Finally. Trailer was okay, definitely looking forward to the new season.

    I’m guessing that tease at the end was the scene they were talking about was almost in the season finale.

    Season looks like it'll (hopefully) be an improvement over the last 2 ****** seasons.

    Would've preferred they used Bart instead of Nora though.

    Looks really good actually. Did they announce who's playing the villain?

    XS is a member of the Legion of Superheroes in the comics, but I wouldn't be surprised if she's a member of the group from Earth-38. They may be from a future where the Multiverse will no longer exist and that XS may have broke off from them to travel back to the present on Earth-1 to see Barry and Iris.

    Since Supergirl, Flash, and Arrow will do the Batwoman crossover, I wonder if Brainiac 5 will interact with XS.

    The teaser for season 5 reignited my enthusiasm after a poor second half of season 4. I'm looking forward to seeing more of Noras and is that Ralph in the Kid Flash costume?

    The big thing was the menacing villain at the end though, great introduction with perfect tone and atmosphere, I read up on the character and there is huge potential there I feel.

    Doesn't look very inspiring to me. The last season was also kinda little silly. Specially mid season.
    Does anyone know about the icons language that barry was writing after coming from speedforce, harrison wells was writing when he lost his intelligence and nora was writing when she came from future? anyone know the link ?:huh:

    It sounds like they are rebooting/recasting the Rogues. Hopefully they aren't wasted this time.

    Why doesn't Barry have a suit that he needs that ring? What happened to his Flash suit?
