Though there was word circulating during the San Diego Comic-Con that The Flash would get the movie treatment, comments made during the CW executive session seem to point to the small screen instead.
Deadline has the update that includes wording that seems to confirm Barry Allen is headed to television.
During the CW executive session, the network’s topper Mark Pedowitz gave more details about The Flash project. It will be the origin story of Barry Allen who will be introduced as a recurring character on Arrowthis coming season.”We want to exapand the DC universe of characters,” he said.
The show will more than likely come from Arrow co-creators Greg Berlanti and Andrew Kreisberg, director David Nutter, with input from DC’s Geoff Johns. How will the network bring The Flash into the television world? Again, according to Deadline, The Flash will be introduced on Arrow and then get a spin-off series.
Does this change the movie rumor, or does it leave the door open for another hero to step onto the silver screen? And if The Flash spins off successfully, will Warner Bros., The CW, and DC Comics reconsider Wonder Woman?
More on this when The CW and Warner Bros. make it officially official.
