It sounds like DC wants to do something with Aquaman, either a TV series or a movie, but it's all amorphous right now. Geoff Johns told Variety:

He's a priority character for the company.

. . . There is no doubt in my mind that this is one of the most well-known characters among superheroes, and in popular culture.


It's still a question as to how DC is making Aquaman a "priority." An Aquaman pilot was made in 2006, and it wasn't well received. Another option is a movie, tied into the universe being formed by Man of Steel and its sequel. But it seems unlikely we'll see an Arthur Curry cameo in Batman Vs. Superman, since the movie's already rumored to be cluttered with superheros –Wonder Woman and Nightwing, to start – but who knows? Maybe they'll ditch one of those for Aquaman. [Sci Fi Now]


The next episode, "The Scientist," will reveal more about Barry Allen. In particular, the TV show will reveal a tragedy in his past that is very true to his comics counterpart. His presence may also signify a turn towards the more extraordinary plots and ideas found in comic books. According to K Site TV:

With the whole "Miracle" storyline in the past on the island and whatever Brother Blood is cooking in the present, it seems extraordinary elements are entering the world of Arrow, and it is those extraordinary elements that bring Barry to Starling City. Perhaps intentionally, I get a bit of an X-Files vibe from this guy; he's quite curious about the unexpected.
