I really liked The Top leading to and during the Rogue War. Its where Johns really started to shine as a writer for me.

Curious to know how the recent shake-up over at Warner Bros. and DC might have affected some of your favorite, most anticipated film properties? Well, IGN recently had the chance to catch up with The Dark Knight producer Charles Roven whose attachment to a feature version of The Flash appears to be on the ropes.

"I was involved at one point with The Flash," said Roven. "And Warner Bros. came to me and said, 'The work that you've been doing hasn't yet resulted in something that any of us, including the filmmaking team, feel could be greenlit as a movie. We're trying to accomplish something that takes into account the entire, rich DC character world, and we'd like to pull it back. That doesn't mean that you aren't going to be a part of it. We just want to take a different kind of approach. Do you mind if we try that?' If we had something that was really working…"

"Like, for example, they had something that was more or less working for them on Green Lantern, and now you have Martin Campbell directing it…But we didn't," Roven continued. "The David Goyer screenplay, that didn't work. Goyer left the project. We then embarked with David Dobkin, trying to come up with another approach. We hadn't even hired a writer at that point. So for us, we completely understood. I've been making movies with Warner Bros. for 15 years, so that was fine, but I hope one day there's a way for me to get re-involved in the project. "

None of which is to say that The Flash has been permanently hobbled, only that Roven's involvement is currently uncertain. Check back with IGN Movies for more as things come together.

I say get out GL first, and then start working on Flash. We need to know they can make something good that doesn't have Batman in it first. Marvel didn't start announcing release dates until they were sure Iron Man was going to be a hit.
