Yes, I am aware of the nonsense that they decided to put Superman through in the comic books. They do love trying to be edgy, don’t they? – And it will work just as well as it has in the past; which is to say, not at all. It won’t sell ’em more comic books and it won’t even stop the steady erosion of market share. But cheer up: the character will eventually enter the public domain. Or somebody with the copyright will decide that they’d like to increase their sales for a change. Either will do.
Apparently the Flash is gonna visit alternate versions of the DC universe in his movie. As GeekTyrant notes, I understand that they did something like this in the TV shows, which were pretty popular. Even with Ben Affleck coming back for one more Batman flick, though: is this really gonna work? I dunno…
Coming out in 2022. That’s pretty much it, except that it’s Ezra Miller from JUSTICE LEAGUE as Barry Allen. I’m… down with that, I think. It is one of the aggravating things about the DCEU movies that I liked the individual superhero actors just fine, and that included Miller. As long as we don’t have to have a stupid origin story (dude’s fast. There you go), I figure that they can make a decent movie out of the Flash’s struggle to figure out what the hell he’s supposed to do with all this speed, anyway.
Honestly, they’re doing a better job with the standalone flicks anyway.
Take this with a massive grain of salt, but That Hashtag Show is claiming thatJoss Whedon will direct the two-part musical crossover between The Flashand Supergirl on The CW in the spring of 2017. I’m not familiar with That Hashtag Show and don’t know if they have an accurate and proven track record breaking stories like this, so I’m hesitant to believe it until we hear further confirmation from another source. But that being said, I think everyone can agree it would be really cool if this ended up being true.
If this (via @BenHowe) takes off, we’re going to see more functionality in our Apple platforms:
Adobe yesterday announced the release of Flash Media Server 4.5 and Flash Access 3.0, updated tools to allow publishers to host streaming Flash video content.
Consequently, as media publishers begin to adopt the new Adobe software, they will be able to easily deliver HTML5-compatible content to mobile devices alongside the traditional Flash Player content. Because the feature utilizes video streaming technology rather than running the Flash content directly on the device, it does not yet support interactive Flash content such as games and banner ads, but the ability to access streaming Flash video on iOS devices will certainly be a welcome addition for many users.
I understand that people may not want the games/banner ads – and that there are issues with touchscreen-compatibility anyway – but having Flash-animated video on my iPad will be welcome.
