Rejoice fellow fans of the red blur!
An article popped up earlier today revealing that with their recent success in Arrow, The CW plans to prioritize the Flash. A Barry Allen Flash will pop up as “a recurring character on Arrow in the 2013-2014 second season” and it is confirmed they are giving us his origin story.
I think this is great because CW executive Mark Pedowitz is also set to direct the Flash movie and while most were hoping to see (my favorite) Wally West and not Barry Allen, Pedowitz might be planning to knock out the origin story on TV and have us be up to speed for the Justice League Movie or the Flash movie in 2016-17.
This seems like DC has good things to come and is beginning to plan out their Universe similar to what Marvel has done.
