The Flash

Carlos Valdes will play "mechanical engineering genius" Cisco Ramon. In the comics, Ramon is the alter ego of the superhero Vibe. Of course, The Flash is following in the footsteps of Arrow, so who knows what spin there might be on that character. [Variety]


Teen Wolf

Dylan Sprayberry (Man of Steel) will join the show as recurring character Liam. Liam is a "cocky and handsome freshman with an enviable athletic prowess." He'll apparently be the perfect student, but be "utterly unprepared" for Beacon Hills. [Entertainment Weekly]



Syfy's developing a new series based on Brian Wood's comic. The team behind it is pretty impressive: former Mad Men executive producers Andre and Maria Jacquemetton and Gravity producer David Heyman will be in charge. The comic's title refers to Manhattan, which became a demilitarized zone following a second American civil war. [K Site TV]


The Messengers

The CW, continuing in their quest to fill their schedule with sci-fi and fantasy, has picked up a pilot from producer Basil Iwanyk. The Messengers will follow a group of seemingly unconnected strangers who are all "killed" by an energy pulse after an object crashes to Earth. When they wake up, they learn that they're believed to be responsible for preventing the impending apocalypse. [The Hollywood Reporter]


Star Wars Rebels

In the same letter that discussed the live-action movies, Iger also spilled a few details of the planned release for Rebels:

As with Marvel, the rich universe of Star Wars has tremendous creative potential for the entire company. While the world eagerly awaits Episode VII to open in theaters, we're introducing Star Wars Rebels to television audiences this summer with a movie and a series of shorts on Disney Channel, followed by a continuing series on Disney XD. Our success in building a robust pipeline of original Star Wars content for various platforms will be an integral part of our long-term strategy to leverage the franchise across a variety of our businesses, from theme parks to consumer products.


The choice to premiere the show on the more popular Disney Channel seems to indicate a fair amount in trust in the project. That seems like a good sign for its quality. [Slashfilm]
