No More DC Spinoffs For The CW: Open To Supergirl Crossover

[[wysiwyg_imageupload:21695:]]

With four DC shows on the slate (Arrow, Flash, Legends Of Tomorrow, iZombie), it’s learned The CW is putting a hold on anymore spinoffs or series from DC Comics.

The LA Times reports CW president Mark Pedowitz stated there are no plans for additional series at the Television Critics Association press tour.

“There is no intention, at this point, to spin anything else off,” Pedowitz said.

It’s also learned that The CW passed on Supergirl, which went to CBS, as The CW was intent on increasing their male viewership, which is why they decided to go with The Flash. The CW was actually approached with Supergirl before The Flash, but the article notes The CW didn’t want to “commit to another superhero series because it would detract from its overall mission to broaden out.”

While Supergirl is on another network, it’s created by the same team behind Arrow and The Flash; Pedowitz did note the three series will have cross-promotions, and Pedowitz also noted the possibility for a Supergirl/Arrow/Flash crossover is there.

“We’re open to crossovers,” Pedowitz said. “It’s [EP Greg Berlanti’s] call because he understands his shows.”

DC Comics Fans Break Guinness World Record


DC Comics Super Hero World Record Event Video

 

Thousands of DC Comics fans have gathered to set the Guinness World Record for most people dressed as a DC Comics super hero in a 24-hour period.

DC announced the news as fans came together from all across the globe ranging from Australia to America.

Fans gathered around the globe to participate in the DC Comics Super Hero World Record Event by donning their favorite costumes inspired by DC Comics’ pantheon of Super Heroes, including Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, The Flash, Green Lantern, Batgirl, Supergirl, Aquaman, Cyborg, Robin, Green Arrow and many more.

“Thanks to all the fans of DC Comics Super Heroes around the world who joined us to set a world record—a record that celebrates the power and appeal of these iconic characters,” said Brad Globe, President of Warner Bros. Consumer Products.

The DC Comics Super Hero World Record Event kicked off on April 18, 2015 in Queensland, Australia, and came to a commemorative close in Los Angeles, CA, USA. Within the same 24-hour period, additional events took place around the world in: Manila, Philippines; Kaohsiung, Taiwan; Madrid, Spain; Rome, Italy; London, Birmingham, Warrington and Cardiff in the UK; São Paulo, Brazil; Paris, France;  “Smallville,” USA (Plano, IL) and Mexico City, Mexico.

Review: Flash #32

If Flash #32 proves anything, it is that longtime fans who welcomed Barry Allen back to the print present can take a breath of relief. It appears that with the team of Venditti, Jensen, Booth and Rapmund, the book is in capable hands for the future (when and wherever that DCU future might be).

While not the burst of creativity it once was at the dawn of the New 52, the stories being turned out by writers Robert Venditti and Van Jensen are keeping the tales of the Flash very involving and extremely entertaining for new readers and old. As a matter of fact, there has probably never been a better time than issues like #32 for new readers to jump aboard the Flash Express.

A trio of stories really occupies this issue: the thief with the Rogues’ tech hunting down a group of people; Future Flash trying to turn back time; and the Barry Allen/Wally West bonding hour. Threads run and crisscross between them all in a tight job of plotting, but the character and depth the writers reach with the Allen/West portion of this issue is a long-awaited little gem in its own right. Great characterization, especially for readers invested in the relationship.

The point is that everything is moving forward (sometimes TOO forward) in the life of Barry Allen and the writing team that helped freshen up the Green Lantern franchise are doing just fine here in Speed City as well.

Fun, involving issue and a great jumping-on spot for newbies.

Review: Flash #9

As the Scarlet Speedster continues his running ways through the New 52 landscape, I must say I am overjoyed that he is being handled in such a wonderful and exploratory way by writers Francis Manapul and Brian Buccellato.

Flash#9 continues the writers’ story of high adventure as Gorilla Grodd makes his debut in the new DCU. Barry Allen travels to the realm of GorillaCity(for the first time!) and comes into contact with … the Runners.

This book is so wonderful that it is hard to believe the Flash … well, Barry Allen … was not only dead for awhile but also the victim of severe cancellation strain. I think it is (almost) safe to say that this direction by Manapul and Buccellato, featuring the beautiful and lush artwork by Manapul (with Buccellato on colors yet) has our hero well in hand.

I mean, look at that opener on Page 2! When has a Gorilla Guy ever looked so savage?

The work that I really appreciate here is a definitive vision for our much-beleaguered and much-misunderstood Scarlet Speedster. These scribes really seem to know where the Flash is going and, like Geoff Johns not long ago, are not afraid to take him there and allow us to come along.

My hopes are high for this book featuring one of the premiere players in the DCU. It is about time the Flash got the respect (and stories) he should be afforded!
