Wonder Woman

by Ryan Rigley

A while back, the CW had plans to produce a Wonder Woman TV series entitled "Amazon," in the same vein as their Superman series "Smallville." However, now that the "Flash" TV series has been appropriately placed on the fast-track towards production, it would appear as though all "Amazon" efforts have been put on hold for the time being.

This, of course, does not mean that the "Amazon" series has been canned. On the contrary, with Warner Bros. and DC's plans to make a "Justice League" movie, re-introducing Wonder Woman via TV series seems like a fairly safe bet to make. As some of you may recall, this won't be the first time that Wonder Woman has graced the small screen. Back in the 70's, Wonder Woman was the star of her own successful prime time TV series!

Josh Brolin

The "Man of Steel" sequel isn't even written yet, but the search is already underway for Bruce Wayne.

The Hollywood Reporter churned the rumor mill over the weekend, listing six names of actors reportedly in contention to play Batman in director Zack Snyder's upcoming superhero epic. The big takeaway: Snyder and Warner Bros. are reportedly eying an "older" Batman — a seasoned Caped Crusader "in the late 30s or around the 40 mark. He will be established and rugged."

According to THR, the top two names at the moment are 46-year-old Josh Brolin (reportedly "the frontrunner at this stage") and 32-year-old Ryan Gosling.

Green Arrow Green Lantern

by Ryan Rigley

Seems like season two of "Arrow" is shaping up to be quite the spectacle for DC fans. With the recent news of China White returning for the series' second season, the "Arrow" cameo tally has added one more notch, in addition to the two created by the news that both the Black Canary and the Flash will be making cameo appearances in upcoming episodes of the CW series.

While Barry Allen is said to be featured in three episodes this fall, Black Canary has been teased at "Arrow" fans since season one began with Oliver Queen's on-again, off-again girlfriend Dinah "Laurel" Lance. If there's one thing that the first season of "Arrow" did not skimp out on, it's awesome DC cameos. That said, here's a list of five more DC cameos that we'd like to see in season two of "Arrow."

Green Lantern
"Arrow" producers Marc Guggenheim and Andrew Kreisberg have already expressed great interest in bring Hal Jordan into the "Arrow" universe. In fact, the Ferris Air logo has already appeared in one of the latter episodes of season one. Green Lantern and Green Arrow are extremely close friends in the comic book, even co-starring in a team-up series called "Green Lantern/Green Arrow" for a time. Clearly, Hal Jordan will make an appearance in some way, shape, or form on the series at some point in time. Whether or not he has his Green Lantern powers—and whether or not he'll be played by Ryan Reynolds—is a different story altogether.

China White

Oliver Queen will have some new and exciting characters entering his life very soon — folks like Barry Allen, for instance — but he can't afford to forget about old foes, either.

"Arrow" producer Marc Guggenheim told Zap2It.com that Kelly Hu is back in the fold as China White, the Triad assassin who gave Queen so much hell throughout the show's first season. She'll return in the second episode of season two.

Amazon

by Brett White

Collider has provided a transcript of the CW's TCA presentation, thus confirming what people have been assuming since the possibility of a "Flash" TV series was announced: the Wonder Woman pilot—entitled "Amazon"—has been put on hold.

"Amazon is on pause right now," said CW President Mark Pedowitz during the presentation. "The script isn't quite where we want it. It's an iconic DC character, and we are not going to put it on unless it works. And now, having the DC universe expand, with the origins of Black Canary coming on this year [in 'Arrow'], as well as potential origins of the Flash, it's better to wait and get it right."

Flash

by Brett White

Following yesterday's early reports of a "Flash" series being fast tracked over at the CW, some of the people with all the answers—writers Andrew Kreisberg and Geoff Johns—staged a conference call following the big announcement during a Television Critics Association press event.

The writers revealed that Barry Allen will be at the center of the show, thus making Wally West fans all the world over sigh heavily, and that the character will appear in the eighth, ninth and twentieth episodes of "Arrow's" second season.

"When we first meet Barry Allen, he's just a forensic scientist... an ordinary man," said Kreisberg, writer and executive producer of "Arrow." They revealed that Allen will spend his first two episodes on Oliver Queen's home turf of Starling City. The twentieth episode, though, takes the audience into Barry Allen's world, which is appropriate since that episode will be a backdoor pilot for a possible "Flash" show. Every Barry Allen episode of "Arrow" season 2 will be written by Kreisberg, Geoff Johns, and Greg Berlanti.

Flash

by Brett White

Not so fast, movies! Television may have plans DC Comics' scarlet speedster, as Deadline has reported that the Flash is being eyed as the lead of a new CW TV series. The news comes just after Warner Bros. announced that a Flash feature film could very well follow up the in-development "Superman vs. Batman," but it looks like fans might get to see the hero in live action before then.

According to Deadline, a series starring the super fast protagonist has been appropriately 'fast' tracked at the network, and "Arrow" co-creators Greg Berlanti and Andrew Kreisberg seem to be behind the wheel, alongside director David Nutter. Berlanti and Kreisberg are expected to write the pilot—and potentially introduce the character during "Arrow's" second season—and Nutter is said to be attached to direct. Joining them is Geoff Johns, the superstar comic book writer who has one fan favorite run on "The Flash" comic under his belt.

Fables

by Brett White

There hasn't been much to report on the "Fables" front since the mature readers title was put in development almost two months ago over at Warner Bros. Now io9 has a video interview with longtime "Fables" artist Mark Buckingham who shared his opinion on what the adaptation absolutely has to have in order to really feel like "Fables."

"I think if it doesn't have Snow White and Bigby [Wolf] in it, then... [that's a problem]," Buckingham told io9. "They were such a core element of the first 50 issues of the story. So I think their romance, their relationship, is a really core aspect of the series. Beyond that, the beauty of 'Fables' is it has such a rich cast, and you can really cherry-pick a lot of different aspects from it, and create a really good story, even if you don't necessarily follow the entire narrative."
