Flash #32 Preview

DC has released the official five-page preview for Flash #32, and you can check them out at Comicosity. (The site says the pages are for #33, but that’s wrong. #33 is the issue with Red Death, and that’s due out on October 25th.) Here we see Barry and Wally teaming up again, although there’s no indication of whether the Top’s in the issue as I’ve been wondering 😉 The issue will be out next week, and be sure to visit Comicosity to see the pages!

Justice League Movie Variants in November

Today DC released some of their variant covers for November, which have a Justice League movie theme. Not all of them depict the Flash, but he’s on at least five of the covers. They feature art from artists as varied as Howard Porter, Mike McKone, Terry Dodson, Dustin Nguyen, and more. You can see a few here (the one at left is by McKone, and those below are by Porter and Tony S. Daniel), and the DC blog shows all of the variants which have been posted so far. And remember, the film is due out the same month, on November 17th!

Keen on any of the covers? Will you be picking up some of these in November?

Flashpoint Movie Update: New Script, Now With Added Wonder Woman

CBR reports that Joby Harold’s Flashpoint movie script is done. They’re still looking for a new director, after Rick Famuyiwa’s exit last November.

One interesting thing I don’t recall noticing before: According to CBR, both Cyborg and Wonder Woman will appear in the film. Cyborg had been previously attached, but Wonder Woman’s a more recent addition, reported last month in Forbes, which also indicates that Flashpoint is scheduled for 2020.

The original Flashpoint comic book featured the entire Earth-based DCU, with a Themiscyra/Atlantis war threatening to engulf the world. No word yet on Aquaman, but it seems likely at this point that he’ll be involved. And the core story was a team-up between Flash/Barry Allen and Batman/Thomas Wayne…

New Flash #32 Solicitation

This was announced a little over ten days ago, but somehow I missed it until now. DC has released a new solicitation and cover for the next issue of The Flash, which is due out on October 11th.
