    "Are you in?"

    Fans of the Arrowverse, DC Comics, and the Flash got their first look at 2022's The Flash, which will cover the "Flashpoint" storyline, one of the most important story arcs to feature the Fastest Man on Earth. Directed by Andy Muschietti, the film promises multiple Batmen, a few Flashes, and the possibility of an old school Batmobile. 

    Many fans speculate that it might be a great way to tackle many of the issues in the current storylines, both with the small screen and large screen versions. As "Flashpoint" features the multiverse, there is a possibility of timeline reset for the extended universe that might help "unclutter" current timeline(s).

    Epix's Pennyworth, which explored the life of Batman butler Alfred Pennyworth in his swashbuckling, spy days prior to doing Bruce Wayne's laundry, got a surprise third season renewal...and a brand new home. 

    Much like the way HBO Max was able to revive both Doom Patrol and Titans by exposing the series to a new audience, Warner Bros. is hoping to work a little Max magic on the flailing adventure series. Starring Jack Bannon as Alfred Pennyworth, Ben Aldridge as Thomas Wayne, and Paloma Faith as baddie Bet Sykes, the Batman prequel was part of the Gotham universe, giving fans hope that success for the series can lead to more Gotham universe shows. 

    No date has been set for the third season, but the first two seasons will be available on HBO Max in early 2022.
