Big news just popped up… in a Flash! Ã‚Â TheÃ‚Â CW network president Mark Pedowitz confirmed The Flash,Ã‚Â aka Barry Allen, is being developed and will first be introduced on the second season of “Arrow”.
“We plan to introduce the recurring character of Barry Allen who is the Flash. 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.”
Greg Berlanti, creator of “Arrow,” said Allen will arrive in episode 8 with no immediately visible powers. He will return in episodes 9 and 20. If all goes well, he could then segue into his own show.
As most of you are aware, the New 52 follows Barry Allen,Ã‚Â Flashpoint Paradox ,Ã‚Â now available on Blu-ray and DVD,Ã‚Â is about Barry Allen, and there are rumors going around aboutÃ‚Â aÃ‚Â FlashÃ‚Â movie for 2016 which might be following him as well.
ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s still unclear if that will occur, but FlashÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s introduction certainly would be interesting and raise questions about whether weÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re meeting members of a potential Justice League movie cast on TV as well as film, as the Batman vs. Superman movie nears in 2015.
