UPDATE: Arrow’s Greg Berlanti, Andrew Kreisberg, And David Nutter Developing A Flash TV Show For The CW


the_flash_575Arrow is getting ready for it’s second season, and looking to capitalize on the popularity of the show, and other shows such as Smallville, DC Entertainment could be looking to expand it’s Superhero library on the CW network. Rumblings from Deadline (also a little of what I have heard) have that none other then The Flash is set to get his own show.

Arrow executive producers Greg Berlanti and Andrew Kreisberg are set to possibly run the show with famed pilot director David Nutter, who handled both pilots for Arrow and Smallville, is on tap to direct. Berlanti and Kreisberg usually work with Marc Guggenheim. However Guggenheim will stay behind and continue work on Arrow.

The idea is to introduce The Flash in the upcoming season of Arrow. Then after that spin the Scarlet Speedster into his own show. The pilot will be written by Berlanti, Kreisberg, and acclaimed DC writer Geoff Johns.

This spells bad news for those of you who wanted to see Wonder Woman get he own TV show. The Amazon Princess was suppose to get a pilot last year, but script problems forced the network to hold off until it could be rewritten. Now, it appears the show is put on an indefinite hold to make way for The Flash.

What does this mean for The Flash movie? It’s difficult to say at this point in the game. Me personally, I would rather have a Flash movie than a TV show. However, anything in any media that has to deal with The Fastest Man Alive, I’m okay with. For the latest on The Flash, make sure to check back here at Comic Book Therapy.

UPDATE: According to Newsarama the main character of the show will indeed be Barry Allen. “We plan to introduce the recurring character of Barry Allen who is the Flash,” Mark Pedowitz told reporters. “We’re planning an origin story and we’ll see how it goes. We do want to expand on DC Universe, and we felt this is a very organic way to get there.” Those who were hoping to see Wally West will simply be out of luck.
