Looks like he's moving a lot faster than a few hundred miles per hour.

I have to say, I don't really care for the "My name is Barry Allen" tag they've been using. It's like they're trying too hard to frame it like Arrow.

Funny, it reminds me more of the Spider-Man movies, in that and other ways (and I've seen other people remarking on that too). But come to think of it, there is an Arrow parallel too.

Although, really, that seems to have become kind of the standard CW opening now. Last season, every episode of The Tomorrow People opened with "My name is Stephen Jameson," and Star-Crossed opened with "My name is Ronan." And most of their shows open with a similar expository speech by the main character even if it doesn't begin with "My name is...". (I know there's a technical term for that kind of opening narration, the mythology something, but I can't remember the second word. Mythology speech? Mythology cut? Something like that.)

The latest radio Batman insanity, from "Batman's Great Mystery" in February 1948:

Clark Kent is trying to convince Inspector Henderson that Batman has been replaced with an impostor, imprisoned or killed by a man who lured him into a trap by threatening to expose his greatest secret -- though Clark won't tell Henderson what that secret is, because of course Batman's true identity as Bruce Wayne must be protected at all costs.

But Kent has a plan to expose the impostor, and asks Henderson: "Do you have Batman's fingerprints on file?"

"Why, sure, but we'd need someone close to him to file a formal complaint before we could check them."

"Robin could do that! Let's go out to their house now!"



What is... I don't even...
That's hilarious. They must have let anybody off the street write for those shows.

Just goes to show, just because you write some dialog and make it fit a time slot it don't mean you're a writer.

If you want to respond to the radio Superman/Batman discussion, I've spun off a new thread for it now:

http://www.trekbbs.com/showthread.php?t=251359

I should've posted that link before, sorry.

I thought he died at the end of his episode. Well, it's comics, after all.

That's all and fine, but I want to see T-Bag vs. the Flash.

I want a Prison Break reunion so let's have Captain Cold (Wentworth Miller), the Clock King (Robert Knepper) and the new Count Vertigo (Peter Stormare) all in one episode.

Re: FLASH series being developed for The CW

Pretty cool preview.

And I'm still really bummed they won't be making this part of the new DC movie universe. I can understand why the creators would prefer to keep it separate, but it still seems like a waste for Warners not to make use of what already appears to be a very fun and entertaining take on the character.

Plus it would be such a quick and easy way to jumpstart some of that Marvel-style synergy they no doubt want to duplicate, and cross-promote all those movies they have coming up.

Sigh.

Nothing I've heard about the movies makes me eager to see them tied into the CWDC universe. I suspect it's better off without them.

I agree with you on this, but for me it is because I don't think the tone of the television universe meshes with the movie universe (at least what we have seen so far).

The Flash is lighter in tone and uses powers, but it easily works with Arrow in the same way that a Green Arrow comic could be different in style with a Flash comic book but crossover stories still work well given the right story.

Re: FLASH series being developed for The CW

I don't know, from what I've seen of Arrow it looks like it could probably fit within the grittier MOS world. And if Arrow and Flash are connected...
