The Flash

David Dobkin will replace Shawn Levy to direct the live-action feature film version of DC Comic for Warner Brothers. says here that Levy's reasons for leaving were not disclosed, but he is trying to rush Night at the Museum 2 (under the title "Another Night") before the cameras before the pending writers strike. Dobkin told MTV that Wally West will be the Flash in the film, and it "will exist in the same universe as the upcoming (Justice League of America) as a direct spin-off."

Wonder Woman

Joel Silver has announced that the Amazon Princess film has been put on hold. He said: "They're going to make the Justice League movie, and we're kind of pausing on Wonder Woman now. Let them go ahead and do that picture [first]. And if that comes together, Wonder Woman will be a part of that story. And then we'll see where we go from there. But we struggled with it for a while. I hope that we can solve it and make it one day."

TV DVD News has posted info about "Barney Miller" (Season 2) here, "Battlestar Galactica" (Season 3) here, "The Smurfs" (Season 1, Vol. 1) here, "Crossing Jordan" (Season 1) here and "Popeye the Sailor" (1938-1943) here, "Superman: The Animated Series" (HD) here , "Justice League" (HD) here and "The Rockford Files" (Season 5) here.

Spyro the Dragon

Variety reports here that Spyro the Dragon, of the Sierra Entertainment and Vivendi Games' video game franchise, will be the subject of an animated feature film. The CGI project will be written by Dan Altiere.

Green Lantern

Greg Berlanti will co-write and direct a live-action adaptation of "Green Lantern" for Warner Brothers, with writers Marc Guggenheim and Michael Green. Berlanti said: "To me, this was on the last great comic book movie that hasn't been made. It was a comic book with a real mythology that you would see in a lot of the space operas and the sci-fi books. The best part about it, anybody can be become one of the Green Lanterns because anyone can end up with that ring. In these post-'Harry Potter' and 'Lord of the Rings' days, it's not any more fantastical than that. It's taken movies like that to make it feel as if a Green Lantern film is possible."
