Dan Mazeau Writing a Flash Script for Warner Brothers
When I was writing the news that the Green Lantern movie was finally going into production this year, I knew comic book fans everywhere would go crazy with excitement. He's just one of those characters that real hardcore comic book fans love to death. Another one that I know comic fans have been waiting anxiously to see on the big screen is The Flash aka Barry Allen or Wally West. We've heard rumors off and on for a while now, but nothing concrete has come together. Well, IESB is claiming that they know for certain that screenwriter Dan Mazeau is currently working on a Flash script for Warner Brothers.
Some of you may remember an article we ran three weeks ago about Warner Brothers putting all DC Comics movies on hold. While that is still in effect, IESB claims that they know for 100% certain that Mazeau is writing a script. This could mean he was just hired so they could entertain the possibility and nothing more. Producer Charles Roven wouldn't confirm or deny the news, but did say this: "The Flash that was the policeman and Kid Flash, Wally, and his uncle. Those are the two Flashes that I grew up with, so I was excited to have the opportunity to try and see if I could actually translate those characters to the screen."
Whether or not this version of The Flash makes it to the big screen, I'm sure there is an exciting future ahead for DC Comics characters and movies. Let's just hope if they ever do go back and make a Justice League movie, that The Flash ends up on the team. Until we hear more on this, we're planning to settle down with some old comics for a while, to get caught up on the Scarlet Speedster. Anyone excited?
