There is a Good Chance Greg Berlanti Will Direct The Flash!
Apparently I missed the memo that this week was going to be Huge Comic Book News Week, but alas, the hits just keep on coming as another high profile comic book character from DC Comics' universe is in the midst of finally getting a director attached after years of being in development. IESB is reporting that Greg Berlanti, who recently wrote, produced and almost directed Green Lantern, is at the top contender to bring the speedy heroics of Barry Allen, aka The Flash, to the big screen. After yesterday's big news surrounding the new Superman project, titled The Man of Steel, there's no denying that DC Entertainment is on fire.
Warner Bros is also behind The Flash and since they're also the studio behind Supes and Batman, they're a big driving force behind this new energy surrounding the comic label which, in the cinematic department, has been largely lacking in giving Marvel Entertainment any worthwhile competition with the exception of the new Batman franchise. Of course, all that will change over these next few years with Superman, Green Lantern and the continued success of Batman, as we watch the comic book rivalry between DC and Marvel move up to the big screen. Fortunately, we all have the best seats in the house for this epic battle. Excited?
