DC News Round-Up: Arrow, The Flash & Wonder Woman

11 DC

Whether it’s Warner Bros, The CW or the DC stable themselves, here are the world-wide mutterings!

Glee star Grant Gustin will be The Flash in Arrow Season 2 and it’s spin-off!

Chronicle writer Max Landis pitches Wonder Woman movie to Warner Bros!

Glee star Grant Gustin has been cast for three episodes in Arrow Season 2 as Barry Allen / The Flash, potentially setting up The CW’s proposed spin-off series. The character is set to debut in episodes 8, 9 and 20 with the final one being a “back-door pilot” for the The Flash TV show – one imagines there’ll be a lot of focus groups checking the response to the character… The spin-off series is being developed by Arrow co-creators Greg Berlanti and Andrew Kreisberg, as well as director David Nutter. Berlanti, Kreisberg, and DC Entertainment’s Geoff Johns will write the script for the series.

Speaking bout what his ideal superhero pitch would be, Chronicle writer Max Landis replied, “Either a version of Green Lantern that played like ET meets Stand By Me using the goth/punk [scene] and Kyle Rayner, or Wonder Woman, using a pitch that I intend to make to Warner Bros.” When asked what movie or TV property he’d like to see rebooted, the writer replied, “You’ll know sooner than you think.”. Wonder Woman has been languishing in development hell for some time, so maybe Landis is the man to bring her to the screen…
