The Flash (Aka WB Plans to Butcher Another Classic DC Character!)
I know many of you like Smallville, and some of you liked Birds of Prey while it lasted. But the following sounds like complete crap. The classic 1990's CBS TV-Series sounds better then this pile of dung. How can Marvel's characters get so many decent adaptions in films and cartoons, but everything DC turns into a joke. Without the classic scarlet speedster costume, this sounds like a lame "Quantum Leap" rip-off. What's next, "Touched by a Wonder Woman". :stupid:
MTFBWY and HH!!
The WB has ordered a pilot for a new series based on DC Comics' “fastest man alive," according to this Friday morning Variety story by Josef Adalian.
Todd Komarnicki, one of the many producers on the Will Ferrell “Elf” movie due in November, will script the "Flash" pilot.
Unlike the 1990 CBS version, the new “Flash” will feature a speedster who never dons the comic-book character’s skintight scarlet running suit.
Like the comics’ current Flash, Wally West, the new TV Flash will learn that he is only the latest in a long line of Flashes.
According to the Variety piece, the Flash will each week be sent on a time-travel mission to the past or the future. (The comic-book Flash can travel through time too – with the help of a handy "cosmic treadmill" – but he doesn’t do it in every issue!)
If the series goes forward, it'll likely debut about a year from now.
