DC Entertainment To Fill DVR’s This Fall: Flash & Constantine Are A Go!

The other day Fox announced that “Gotham” was green lit to go to series and this show will feature the pre-history time of the city, its villains and a young, recently orphaned Bruce Wayne. It really looks interesting and earlier today it was reported that the CW Network has given the go ahead to the “Arrow” spinoff of “The Flash” along with a Vertigo Comics tale “iZombie”. I’ve little background on iZombie personally but know that Grant Gustin’s Barry Allen made an appearance on “Arrow” about a month ago during a two-part episode that left you with a cliffhanger that will surely be the perfect setup for a pilot episode. Check out the proposed costume that Grant is sporting below. I like it actually.
