Running down the top fandom events of the upcomming year
5. "The Flash" TV (TBA)
Fans of "Arrow" have been given a minor taste of Barry Allen, but excitement for the upcoming series is already at a fever pitch. "Arrow" is currently the best superhero show on TV, but it is more urban vigilante drama than straight-up superhero action. With "The Flash," Warner Bros. has promised an in-your-face superhero show complete with costumes and overt usage of powers. None of this Clark moping in a hay loft wearing red flannel "Smallville" storytelling, but rather, a love letter to the DC Universe in all its incarnations. At this point, fans can only dream of what characters may be joining Barry and what else DC has up their sleeves, but one thing we know is that "The Flash" promises to be a superhero show that is proud to be a superhero show, one hopefully complete with Rogues, super-powered gorillas and heroic guest stars.
