The Flash first appeared in the Golden Age Flash Comics #1, January of 1940, from All-American Publications, one of three companies that would eventually merge to form DC Comics. Created by writer Gardner Fox and artist Harry Lampert, this Flash was Jay Garrick, a college student who gained his speed through the inhalation of hard water vapors, wearing a winged metal helmet reminiscent of the mythological Greek god Hermes. Through the years three other Speedsters would take on the mantle; Barry Allen, Wally West, and Bart Allen.
Jason Damian from Influence Films uses the Wally West version of the Flash character for his first foray into fandom filming with “The Flash: Crossover”. The film also has Harley Quinn and Talia al Ghul making an unprecedented alliance. When every other fan film is based on the Star Wars or Batman mythos it’s refreshing to see another of DC’s giants make it into live action.
We talk to Jason this week about his DC character offering as well as his upcoming Mortal Kombat film, “The Tobias Diamond”.
