That's the word out of the TCAs. Looks like the successful team behind Arrow will introduce Flash (deadline.com), to possibly spin it off into a series. This will majorly violate the "no superpowers" rule on Arrow, but then if the DC Universe is going to be expanded upon, that was always going to have to happen.

I hope John Wesley Shipp and Mark Hamill get calls for cameos.

JWS for Jay Garrick!

I am far too excited at this announcement. Who knew I was such a fanboy for The Flash?

Curious of what they are going to do with this. There were rumors that Flash is going to be after Superman/Batman as the next DC movie. I would like Arrow to drop their no super powers embargo since Green Lantern/Green Arrow is some of the best stories that have been told.

Looks like it's now confirmed (forbes.com).

I really like the idea of this. As far as the "no superpowers" rule, let's be honest ... though he doesn't have "super powers", how believable is a vigilante archer that a.) never misses or b.) never gets caught or has his identity discovered in this day & age of social media?

I also like idea of perhaps maintaining the continuity of these series and their lead actors with the Justice League/DC movies ... as the article states, it could be a very cost effective route for WB & wouldn't necessarily look like a copycat version of Marvel's model.

I'm glad to read that he will be called The Flash instead of some stupid nickname....

Yeah, I'm not that big a fan of the art style but it was pretty dark for a "cartoon" which was a nice change for me. Glad Superman wasn't the center of attention.
