Wonder Woman

by Ryan Rigley

With a "Justice League" movie planned for 2016, Warner Bros. has been doing everything within their power to make sure audiences are well acquainted with their DC superheroes before the big team-up franchise. In 2015, Zack Snyder will be helming a "Superman vs. Batman" movie, which may be loosely based on Frank Miller's "The Dark Knight Returns." Before that, the CW plans to produce a new "Flash" TV series which may or may not tie into the upcoming "Flash" film.

With all of these DC capes flying around, we here at Splash Page can't help but wonder when Wonder Woman's time to shine will be. After all, the Amazing Amazon is one of the founding members of the Justice League and even one of the core three members—right next to Superman and Batman. Clearly it's only a matter of time before Diana Prince gets her own feature film. So what say we start talking about which Wonder Woman stories are fit for the silver screen?

Flash

by Ryan Rigley

The TV series starring the Fastest Man Alive just can't come fast enough! Since Warner Bros. announced their plans to make a "Flash" TV series, set to premiere on the CW before the "Flash" movie, the minds of "Flash" fans everywhere have been racing with possibilities.

While this isn't the first time that the Scarlet Speedster has starred in his own TV series, there's no denying that this new "Flash" series will be infinitely better than its predecessor—especially considering the fact that it could potentially link to the newly-developed DC cinematic and/or television universe. The possibilities are virtually endless! With that, we here at Splash Page present to you a list of five Flash stories that we hope to see in the new "Flash" TV series.

Fables

by Ryan Rigley

Although there haven't been any major updates on "Fables" since last month, long-time "Fables" artist Mark Buckingham has expressed his expert opinion on what absolutely needs to be in the film. "I think if it doesn't have Snow White and Bigby [Wolf] in it, then... [that's a problem]," Buckingham explained in an interview with 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."

Not much else is known about the "Fables" movie thus far, besides the fact that it will be directed by Nikolaj Arcel ("A Royal Affair"), written by Jeremy Slater (2015's "Fantastic Four Reboot"), and produced by David Heyman and Jeffrey Clifford (the "Harry Potter" series). "Fables" marks the fifth Vertigo title to be adapted for film, right after "Hellblazer," "A History of Violence," "Stardust," and "V for Vendetta." Click past the jump for five more Vertigo titles fit for the big screen!

Age of Ultron

by Brett White

A movie or television adaptation has long been a surefire way to drive up prices and interest in comic book back issues. A "Guardians of the Galaxy" movie gets announced and suddenly no one can find "Marvel Super-Heroes" #18—simply because that's where the original team made their debut!

Even celebrities aren't immune to this movie-based buying. Aaron Taylor-Johnson, the guy rumored to be Joss Whedon's top choice for Quicksilver in "Avengers: Age of Ultron," revealed to MTV News that he now owns a key Quicksilver comic, simply because of his rumored involvement!

With that in mind, here are five comics that you should keep an eye out for as the next batch of comic book movies near release!

arrow

by Brett White

"Arrow" had a lot of tricks up its sleeve in its first season. Grounded setting? Believable take on Oliver Queen? A well-paced dual narrative? An explosive season finale? Thanks to all of those things, "Arrow" became one of the biggest breakout hits on network television in recent memory.

Now "Arrow's" coming back for seconds, and they're bringing a lot of friends from the DC Universe with them. The Flash is set to appear, as is Black Canary, and China White will make a return appearance as well. "Arrow's" world is expanding, there will be double the big bads, and there's also that super team that keeps getting hinted at.

Today, producer Marc Guggenheim revealed via Twitter yet another DCU reference lined up for season 2. Check it out after the jump.

Bryan Cranston

Bryan Cranston is the danger. He is the one who knocks. And pretty soon, he might be knocking on Superman's door.

El Mayimbe at Latino-Review.com tweeted some very obvious clues that the "Breaking Bad" star is the man Zack Snyder and Warner Bros. want to play Lex Luthor in the upcoming "Man of Steel" sequel — the same film that puts Kal-El on the Caped Crusader's radar.

Paving the way for 2016's "Justice League" movie, founding member the Flash is on the verge of getting not only his own movie but also a TV series on the CW.

While this isn't the first time that the Scarlet Speedster has been on TV, we here at Splash page can't help but wonder what the "Flash" TV series means for the future of the DC cinematic—and television—universe. With that in mind, here's a list of five Flash-tastic things that we hope to see in the "Flash" TV series!

Captain Cold

by Ryan Rigley

Since the announcement of "The Flash" feature film at this year's San Diego Comic Con, Warner Bros. has put the Scarlet Speedster on the fast track towards becoming the next big DC superhero. Last week, Deadline broke the news of a "Flash" TV series in development over at The CW. On top of that, the fastest man alive is set to appear in three episodes of season two of "Arrow" before spinning off into his own CW series.

Clearly, DC has big plans for the Flash before his movie is released in 2016. But just because the "Flash" movie is still three years away doesn't mean we can't start speculating about it now! That said, here's a list of the five Flash rogues fit for the silver screen.

Captain Cold
Often times considered to be the Flash's arch nemesis, Leonard Snart was a lowlife criminal who accidentally created a freeze ray by exposing an experimental weapon to massive amounts of radiation. As Captain Cold, Snart acts as the leader of a small band of Flash villains called the Rogues. Despite Cold being a hardened criminal, he still abides by a certain set of rules, like no drugs and no killing unless absolutely necessary.
