Warner Bros. did its big shareholder talk this morning, and took the opportunity to drop some big release date info. The biggest is the studio’s upcoming plans for superhero films, and massive DC movie plans were revealed.
Suicide Squad will be the first DC film to follow Batman v Superman, with a plan for release in 2016. Then things get really big. In 2017 we’ll see Wonder Woman and Justice League, with 2018 bringing The Flash (with Ezra Miller starring) and Aquaman. In 2019 WB plans Shazam and Justice League 2.
Finally, studio head Kevin Tsujihara says there are plans coming together for Cyborg (played by Ray Fisher in Batman v Superman), a Green Lantern reboot, and additional standalone Batman and Superman films. Read More »

Is Barry Allen drunk, or just a vigorous self-promoter? In this Flash poster for The CW’s new TV show, the hero is depicted running down a street in Central City. For some reason, he’s running in a zig-zag pattern that occasionally points him backwards. But whatever; the guy is so fast that he’ll still get where he’s going with time to spare.
And The Flash is meant to be fun, after all, so what’s a little time spent running just for fun? Speaking of, this poster is also decorated with a few little easter eggs. Some point to the series’ companion show, Arrow, while others hint at future developments for the series.

The CW’s pilot for The Flash roars to life in a way that announces a show that has found its feet even before airing. Perhaps that’s because this is a spin-off from the increasingly popular Arrow, and The Flash inherits some of Arrow’s sensibility and DNA, despite being clearly intended as a brighter and more easy-going companion to that show.
This is a series that can experiment with all the overly “comic book” elements that have been part of Flash stories: the concept of super-speed; bad guys with names like Weather Wizard and Mirror Master; and time travel. As seen in this pilot, The Flash is a breezy bit of fun packed with indications that writer/producers Greg Berlanti, Andrew Kreisberg and Geoff Johns aren’t going to avoid the weirder bits of Flash history.
