Grant Gustin made a positive impression with his introduction of his character in the CW’s Arrow last fall and the CW is running with Grant into the new series The Flash. Character Barry Allen arrives in Stirling, the home of the Green Arrow, as a forensic investigator assistant looking to unravel the death of his parents.

Geeky guy with a tragic past is transformed into a masked marvel by some freaky science—always reminded me of a Peter Parker type hero. The new five minute extended trailer mostly excited comic fans but also left a few lingering questions about the “fastest man alive”.

Before Batman, there was Gotham.

Fox looks to reveal a new chapter in the Batman saga with the pre-commissioner life of James Gordon. The network seems to be trying to sell a Batman series without Batman? Part crime drama, part superhero origins, fans get to see their favorite icons in the corrupt streets of Gotham City, from The Penguin to Catwoman and Two-Face and The Joker…. as teenagers.

Warner Brothers finally confirmed the rumors—the Justice League is coming to the big screen. Either in 2018 or summer 2017 (those details are still debatable), the film will be following the Man of Steel sequel in 2016. Greg Silverman, Warner Brothers Pictures president referred to the Man of Steel sequel as Superman Vs. Batman, so intentionally or not it seems we also have an official spoiler for the title.

The Justice League film will be directed by Zack Snyder, starring Ben Affleck as Batman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Ray Fisher as Cyborg, and Henry Cavill as Superman. Currently, the production for Superman Vs. Batman suggests there’ll be a possible overlap in filming to accommodate dual production schedules (Cavil is probably going to awfully tired of spandex after all that).

The highly anticipated Fox prequel series Gotham recently cast actor Cory Michael Smith to be Edward Nygma, the future Riddler. The series follows James Gordon’s ride through a “dangerously corrupt city teetering on the edge of evil” and the birth of DC comics super villains and vigilantes in Gotham city.

Another comic book legend will soon appear on the small screen with the NBC series starring the once-con-man-now-detective character, John Constantine. Matt Ryan, known by Doctor Who fans in BBC’s “Torchwood” for his works in Showtime’s “The Tudors”, was recently released as the DC Comics‘ character John Constantine in new character photo below.

Hopefully not many readers will think of that Keanu Reeves 2005 flop Constantine, but rather the cunningly snarky antihero first introduced in the 1985 series the “Swamp Thing”.  From 1988 to 2013, Constantine made his way as a lead character in “Hellblazer” and finally his own character series “Constantine,” where he fights to protect Earth against dark forces.
