DC Comics: The Flash gets new TV Series & Film in the works; Wonder Woman/ Amazon TV Series put on hold

Even with Superman and Batman getting their own team-up movie in 2015 as a sequel to Man Of Steel, don't count out the other members of the Justice League and heroes/ heroines of DC Comics yet, as Warner Bros. has more news, one good and one somewhat bad.

Looks like The Fastest Man Alive is hitting the small screen yet again, thanks to the success of the other DC Comics superhero TV Series "Arrow" that's based on the Emerald Archer Green Arrow.

In a report by Deadline, The CW Network is reportedly adding The Flash to their list of priorities for upcoming TV Series, following the character's inclusion and appearance in the second season of "Arrow". CW Executive Mark Pedowitz has confirmed that the Scarlet Speedster will indeed be an iteration of the Silver Age and New 52 fan favorite Barry Allen. Arrow creators Greg Berlanti and Andrew Kreisberg, as well as DC Comics' Chief Creative Officer and scribe Geoff Johns, are planning to include The Flash as a recurring character alongside Stephen Amell's Arrow, and while he'll be appearing in TV, Berlanti also states that the character is still getting his own feature film, and that "no conflict" will occur between the two mediums. How this will fit into inevitable plans for a "Justice League" film in the DC Cinematic Universe after "Superman Vs Batman" is anyone's guess, but here's hoping for something (and perhaps a cameo in the new TV show by original 1990's Flash TV Series actor, John Wesley Ship).

Meanwhile, the other superhero TV series in development by the CW, namely "Amazon" and featuring the DC Comics heroine Wonder Woman, is reportedly on "pause" and will be put on hold for the moment. Mr. Pedowitz reports that "the script isn't where we want it", referring to the CW/ WB's dissatisfaction with the development process, making a debut in 2014 somewhat unlikely.

Expect more from The Flash and Wonder Woman in the small and big screen soon from WB, DC Comics, and The CW.
