Batman & The Flash: Hero Run Mobile Game Out For Android and iOS!

Hey Speed Readers,

So a few days back I got a phone call from a friend informing me of a new Flash and Batman-related mobile game. At first I dismissed the news as one of those lame unlicensed mobile apps that lets you fly a reasonable facsimile of your favorite character against generic enemies (especially because of the odd pairing of Batman and The Flash). But nope, sure enough there is a new mobile game available for the Android and iOS featuring Batman, The Flash and a couple of surprise characters.

Media Blitz!: Booth on Wally, Johns on Cold (via Newsarama)

Category: Flash News — By and

Newsarama has been busy with Flash-related news and interviews over the past few days, and you can find links and relevant snippets here (read the articles for the full details).  Some of this information should be considered spoilers, so proceed with caution.

First, they talked to Brett Booth about how Wally West will be handled in the New 52.

Nrama: Let’s talk about what you guys are facing now. We’ve had two and a half years of the New 52 with no Flash except Barry Allen. What’s the biggest challenge about introducing Wally West at this time, with Barry already established?

Booth: I think it will be getting people to accept this version. I know what some people are expecting, I know what I’d want. He will be different, for one thing, in the old DCU he was Iris’s sister’s kid. She has a brother now, so things won’t be exactly the same. The original Wally was from a different time, a very Norman Rockwell sort of place. That is no longer the case for anyone in the New 52. He will reflect that, I’m sure.
