Nicola Scott was interviewed in the same Word Balloon episode that had the interview with Greg Pak. She talked about the secret origin of the Earth 2 series. I’d suggest listening to the podcast because the following was said in a light manner. Without that it could sound pretty harsh and it really didn’t come across that way. I found the pitch for 1960s JSA really interesting. It sounds kind of like JSA meets Mad Men. Anyway here is Nicola Scott on the the creation of Earth 2:


I was asked if I would like to do the job in June the year before it started and I don’t think I actually started on it until maybe January or February. I can’t remember when it was now. Now when I was first asked about it, it was going to be a 1960s JSA book where the heroes were all in their 40s and i think part of the reason why I was offered the job was because, you know, it would all be about the fashions and the trends and all that kind of stuff and they thought well maybe a girl would be good for that. So that is possibly why I was offered the job in the first place. That’s not quite being fair to DC but I think it’s probably one of the ingredients. And the idea continued to evolve as they were you know nutting it out and getting closer and closer. Eventually it got to the point where the idea got bigger and they knew - you know it turned into what it turned into. And I don’t know but I think there might have been a little bit of,  Oooo we already attached Nicola to this book and suddenly it’s a big boy book but a big boy book was kind of what I asked for. I said I want a testosterone book I want to see if I could draw one.

Weather DC thought that or not, there is no question that Nicola is kicking butt on the series.

The Hollywood Reporter divulged the news that John Wesley Shipp has been cast as a mystery role in the pilot of the CW’s show, The Flash. Shipp originally played Barry Allen/The Flash in the CBS 1990s series The Flash. Greg Berlanti, Andrew Kreisberg and Geoff Johns will be writing the pilot. Geoff Johns recently joked with ComicBook.com that could connect Shipp to Jay Garrick.

We’ve seen The Flash a few other times before on screen. Grant, do you have a favorite past portrayal?
Grant Gustin: To be honest, I’ve never seen anybody else portray The Flash. The last time a series was around, I was an infant. [Both John Wesley Shipp and I] are from Norfolk, Virginia, which is strange. Not that many people are. Our birthdays are a week apart…it is sort of strange, I guess.
Johns: He’s the Flash of Earth 2.

I sure hope we get to see live action Jay Garrick!
