'The Flash' Feature Film Is Slow Going

The FlashWhile movies based on DC's big guns like Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman and even Green Lantern seem to be getting all the attention from the blogosphere these days, fans may be surprised to hear that another DC stalwart -- The Flash -- is also in the running (bad pun intended) for a potential film.

However, according to an update over on Shock Till You Drop.com, those hoping to see DC's Scarlet Speedster make a quick dash for the silver screen will have to wait a little while longer. While details are scarce, the site managed to speak with "The Dark Knight" producer Charles Roven on the red carpet at this weekend's 2008 Scream Awards, where he said there was "no momentum" on the adaptation.

As mentioned, very little is known about Warner Bros.'s "The Flash," other than David Dobkin being attached as the director. According to the plot summary on ComingSoon.net, the film will follow the Wally West incarnation of the character, and originally was meant to be a spin-off of the now all-but-DOA "Justice League" film. Given the recent news and rumors surrounding DC's upcoming lot of films -- and the fact that it has been reported that the future of DC's franchises will depend heavily on a successful sequel to "The Dark Knight" -- fans could be in for a long wait for a "Flash" feature film.

Would you like to see The Flash make moves to the silver screen much quicker, or are you more excited about Warner Bros./DC's current slate of in development and upcoming movies? Let us know in the comments.
