Talking at the CW's TCA panel today, network boss Mark Pedowitz has confirmed that they are moving ahead with a small screen adaptation of The Flash. Further details on that can be found by clicking HERE, although he did go on to confirm that the series will focus on Barry Allen and that it will indeed be an origin story. However, the character will first make his entrance as a recurring star in Arrow. Pedowitz also told reporters that Amazon has been put on hold as they want to get their interpretation of the character right, while also assuring them that there are no conflicts between the movie and television worlds. Interestingly, The Hollywood Reporter has added in their report that Greg Berlanti is still developing a big screen version of The Flash for a 2016 release. He will apparently direct the movie and write it alongside Chris Brancato, Michael Green, Geoff Johns and Marc Guggenheim. Will these both feature the same actor and version of the character?
