The Flash gets a director

Posted by LiveFor on February 26, 2010

Another day, another DC Comic book film moves ahead. We have the possibility of Goyer and Nolan working on a Superman film and now IESB has the news that Greg Berlanti is the favourite to direct the fastest man alive, The Flash.

Berlanti wrote a draft for the Ryan Reynolds Green Lantern movieand was going to direct it before Warner Bros went with Martin Campbell.

No word on a script or star so still early days, but this is further along than a Flash film has been in the past. At one point Ryan Reynolds was rumoured to play him, but as he will he Green Lantern I doubt that will happen (it being the same universe). That gives us the splendid oppotunity to put our comic geek heads on (my fave after films) and wonder who would make a good Flash – not sure whether it will be Barry Allen or Wally West. I’m guessing the former. Neil Patrick Harris could be good. Bradley Cooper missed out on Green Lantern so he could be up for it.

Who should play Flash? Suggest some names in the comments and I’ll put a poll together.

Holy Blackest Night! Lex Luthor with a Power Ring

Posted by LiveFor on January 8, 2010

The cover of DC’s Blackest Night #7 shows that a number of DC characters are going to get their hands on a power ring. It shows:

Atom – Indigo for Compassion
The Flash – Blue for Hope
Mera – Red for Rage
Lex Luthor – Orange for Greed
Scarecrow – Yellow for Fear
Wonder Woman – Violet for Love

Apparently, John Stewart warns Hal Jordan that every Black Lantern in the universe is heading for Earth. Jordan says they need the entire seven Corps to arrive and unite in order to produce the white light. While they summon the seven Corps to Earth, Ganthet duplicates the rings of each respective power of the emotional spectrum to double their efforts to halt the Black Lantern Corps until they arrive. While Ganthet himself becomes a Green Lantern, Barry Allen is chosen as a deputy Blue Lantern, Mera as a Red Lantern, Lex Luthor (who had been battling the hundreds of people he had killed over the years) as an Orange Lantern, Scarecrow as a Sinestro Corps officer, Atom as an Indigo Tribe member, and Wonder Woman as a Star Sapphire after she is broken free from the black ring’s influences with Greek goddess Aphrodite’s aid.

If none of this is making any sense then head over here to get up to speed.

Justice League: Crisis On Two Earths Preview

Posted by LiveFor on October 3, 2009

dccrisisI posted some pics and news on this new animated film a while back and now we have some footage.

Written by Justice League alumni Dwayne McDuffie and Bruce Timm serving as executive producer, the feature borrows themes from DC’s “Crisis On Infinite Earths” and Grant Morrison’s “JLA: Earth 2″ storylines with a heroic version of Lex Luthor traveling from a parallel Earth to enlist the aid of the Justice League in thwarting their evil counterparts, The Crime Syndicate. Owlman stands out as the most notable foe, apparently putting “the balance of all existence in peril” according to Warner Bros.

The Cast is as follows:
Mark Harmon – Clark Kent/Kal-El/Superman
James Woods – Owlman
Chris Noth – Lex Luthor
William Baldwin – Bruce Wayne/Batman
Gina Torres – Super Woman
Bruce Davison – The President
