CW to Create Arrow Spin-off for The Flash?

 Arrow Season 2 to introduce the Flash in time for his own spin-off show on The CW

Excited reports are that Arrow Season 2 will introduce the first super-powered DC superhero to the show  – in the form of the Flash – as a pre-cursor to getting his own show. Arrow executive producers Greg Berlanti, Andrew Kreisberg and David Nutter are said to be on-board in developing the spin-off show – how they treat The Flash, who can beat the speed of sound by using the extra-dimensional Speed Force, using it to travel through time and more, and how he will mesh in the same ‘real-world’ DC universe of Oliver Queen (and arguably Chris Nolan’s Dark Knight) remains to be seen, but at least they can look to the Man of Steel for a template.

Andrew Kreisberg and Geoff Johns also revealed to that this will be a pivotal moment for the show. “We looked at it as Barry Allen,” said Johns. “When he first appeared back in the Fifties, he ushered in the Silver Age of DC superheroes. In the same way, he’s going to usher in some new and pretty insane concepts to the Arrow world, but in a very grounded way.” “The important thing is that our characters, who people have really come to know and like, will react to the extraordinary changes to their world, hopefully in a very realistic way,” picked up Andrew Kreisberg. “These ‘powers’ won’t be treated as commonplace, on the show.  They will be extraordinary events and the world, and our characters in it, will react accordingly.”

O-M-G!!! It would seem that both DC and 20th Century Fox (with Mark Millar helming the X-Men franchise) are determined not to let Marvel have it all their own way…
