Would you trade the TV show, with its modest budget and cast, but faithfulness to the comics and source material, for a massive-budget trilogy of movies with a A-list cast, that is however dark and gritty and changes both the tone and the characters' personalities to fit a more realistic setting?
why on earth would anyone want that under any circumstances?
I mean, if you like dark and gritty movies, that's great. But you can just make a dark and gritty movie, you don't have to make it an adaptation of something it has nothing in common with.
>Would you want based show that does 88% of things right
26 episodes x 2 seasons x 20 mins an episode / 60 mins per hour = 17.33 total hours of content
>an immersion-breaking cast, an edgy atmosphere, and changing the characters to be boring in the same boring setting you have to face every morning
3 movies x 2 hours each = 6 hours total content
Gee, that's a hard one OP.
Why does Warner does this? Do they really think that people are too retarded to understand that the movie and the series are two different continuities?
Of course they do, and they are right.
look no one with half a brain on /co/ thinks Flash is top tier television that will win dozens of Emmys, but it's at least fun and true to the source and the tone of Flash. and really that's all a comic show needs to be because otherwise we'll get trash like Agents of Shield instead.
In the other Flash thread someone posted a theory that the reason they are introducing so many new speedsters is that they are going to kill off Barry before the movie comes out and then continue with one of the other Flashes.
Well, they still have time to develop Jay and Wally and the supporting cast would stay. Besides, if Barry went out in a COIE-style sacrifice, the sheer Hype Force generated by the event would be enough to keep most people.
Mid season finale. He just showed up at the door and was invited in, hasn't been any real development yet.
I will say though that he seemed pretty humble, so hopefully they don't do nu52 stereotype black Wally.
No, simply because movies are an inferior medium for superhero-adaptations.
An essential part of the superhero "experience" are the vast number of tales they have.
You cant compress a whole superhero-legacy into 3 movies.
comicbooks > cartoon shows > live-action shows > animated movies > live-action movies > videogames
