UPDATE: A 'Flash' Series is in Development, will be Introduced as Barry Allen in Arrow
What is this?
I just read over at Deadline, that CW is fast tracking a 'Flash' series.
Yeah, a Flash series. First we hear about a possible movie for him and now a series?
The Flash will come from the co-creators of Arrow, Greg Berlanti, Andrew Kreisberg, and director David Nutter. We may hear more about this during Television Critics Association conference. The plan is to introduce Flash in the second season of Arrow and then, spin him off into his own series.
The Flash... I'm not feeling this at all. I guess somewhere down the line, The Flash has become a hot idea to market. But why can't they put this energy into a Wonder Woman series/movie... Hell, everything about her? I don't want to make this into another Wonder Woman rant, but after hearing this, I can't help but to think that she will never get the respect she deserves.
I can't see the appeal of a Flash series, unless they make him uber sexy and shirtless. That's what they had to do to Arrow. He was shirtless in most of the marketing and partly in the first few episodes. I'm curious how they will push The Flash.
Hmmm.... Now, I'm sad.
CW Big Wig Mark Pedowitz confirms that The Flash is in development and that Barry Allen will first be introduced as a recurring character on Arrow.
