New ARROW Clip Introduces Barry Allen aka FLASH

The CW’s original plan was to introduce Barry Allen in a recurring role on Arrow and reveal his alter ego Flash in a late-season backdoor pilot before launching The Flash next fall.  The Arrow team shot episodes 8 and 9 with Barry Allen—response was positive enough that The CW will forego the backdoor pilot process and start prepping a traditional Flash pilot that is all but guaranteed for a series order.

The network has released a clip of Barry Allen’s introduction from episode 8, “The Scientist.”  Grant Gustin makes a good first impression.  I can already see in the minute-long clip how Gustin could turn this into a memorable character, which is a great sign for The CW’s very valuable property.  Watch the clip after the jump.  “The Scientist” airs Wednesday at 8/7c.

With the big announcement of the expansion of the Arrow universe to include Barry Allen, aka The Flash, in Season 2 of the popular series on The CW, executive producers/writers Andrew Kreisberg and Geoff Johns participated in a conference call with press to discuss what viewers can expect.

During the interview, Kreisberg and Johns talked about why The Flash is the first character from the DC universe that will cross paths with Arrow, what makes his personal story compelling, that he’ll appear in three episodes – Episodes 8, 9 and Episode 20 (to be directed by David Nutter) – which will set things up for a possible spin-off, how the introduction of superpowers will affect the world of Arrow and its characters, what sort of conflict will arise between Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) and Barry Allen, where they’re taking inspiration from, and that they were waiting to start casting until they made the official announcement about the character.  Check out what they had to say after the jump.

After finding great success with its superhero series Arrow, The CW is looking to take aim at another DC Comics character for a new TV show.  Deadline reports that the network is fast tracking Flash, a drama series based on the DC Comics character The Flash.  The Barry Allen character will first be introduced on a recurring basis in the upcoming second season of Arrow, after which he will get his own origin series.  Arrow co-creators Greg Berlanti and Andrew Kreisberg are developing Flash alongside Arrow director David Nutter, with Berlanti, Kreisberg, and DC’s Geoff Johns poised to pen the pilot.  Berlanti and Kreisberg will run the series should The CW pick up the pilot, and Nutter—who helmed the Arrow pilot—will direct the first episode.

Warner Bros. has been developing a superhero team-up movie to match Marvel’s Avengers success with their DC characters for some time now, but the plans keep stalling.  WB has finally found a way in, and is ready to announce their gameplan at Comic-Con today.  After Man of Steel, Superman and Batman are both established at the box office, so it makes sense to follow Man of Steel with a Superman/Batman team-up in 2015 as reported earlier today.  But wait, there’s more!  Heat Vision adds that the studio is planning a Flash movie in 2016 and finally getting to Justice League in 2017.

That is all the detail we have at the moment, but this is an exciting time to be a DC fan.  Check back soon for our full recap of the Warner Bros. Comic-Con panel.  Hit the jump for a tired Marvel/DC comparison.

Meet the JUSTICE LEAGUE: Which Heroes Are In, Who Was Left Out and Who Might Make a Cameo?

As you can see from the above image, not everyone who’s historically been in DC’s Justice League will make it into Warner Bros. Justice League in 2015. The only confirmed creative type on the picture is screenwriter Will Beall (Gangster Squad) as no director or cast is in place yet, but it looks as if we might have a solid core of characters we can expect to see on screen.  We posted an extensive list of possible superheroes a couple of weeks ago, along with the rumors of the movie’s villain and source material.  That list has been whittled down considerably.  Hit the jump to see who made the cut, who missed out and who might pop up as a cameo.

Rumor: JUSTICE LEAGUE Movie Villain Revealed?

What can we confirm about Warner Bros.’ Justice League so far? We know Zack Snyder (director of Man of Steel) has a lot to say about how his film fits into the Justice League universe, and that Joseph Gordon-Levitt (The Dark Knight Rises) is reportedly not set to play Batman in the picture. Other than that, we know Will Beall (Gangster Squad) is writing the screenplay which will feature Superman, Batman, Green Lantern, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, the Flash and other heroes. But who will these heroes unite against, exactly? Will it be an army of faceless evildoers, much like the Chitauri in The Avengers? Not likely, since the Marvel sequel will be opening the same year as the DC picture and The Avengers 2 already has a Mad Titan in Thanos. So who in the DC universe could possibly be more powerful? Hit the jump to find out.

JUSTICE LEAGUE Movie Lands GANGSTER SQUAD Scribe Will Beall; Update on WONDER WOMAN

Warner Bros. injects some much-needed life into their Justice League feature by tapping scribe, Will Beall (Gangster Squad).  Clearly, after Disney and Marvel’s The Avengers put a superheroic dent into 2012′s box office, the studio behind the DC version would like to do the same.  Beall has yet to turn in his draft, but the studio has shown strong faith in the screenwriter, having attached him to their reboot of Lethal Weapon and their remake of Logan’s Run.  The latter will reunite Gangster Squad’s Ryan Gosling with his Drive director, Nicolas Winding Refn.  Hit the jump for more on this exciting news for Justice League and to find out who is writing the Wonder Woman screenplay.

Warner Bros. to Reboot BATMAN after THE DARK KNIGHT RISES; Christopher Nolan to Remain on as Producer

Christopher Nolan has publicly stated that The Dark Knight Rises will be his final Batman film, and Warner Bros. is already looking ahead to the future of the franchise.  As we reported last night, the studio is currently planning a Justice League movie for 2013 and Warner Bros. president Jeff Robinov tells Hero Complex that scripts are being written for Flash and Wonder Woman (the Wonder Woman project would exist separately from the upcoming NBC show).  But most intriguing is what the studio plans to do with its marquee superhero, Batman:

“We have the third Batman, but then we’ll have to reinvent Batman…” says Robinov.  “Chris Nolan and [producing partner and wife] Emma Thomas will be producing it, so it will be a conversation with them about what the next phase is.”

Hit the jump for my thoughts on the future of the Batman franchise.
