A Flash, A King, and A Raccoon, no it's not a lead in a joke

I'm sure anyone that watches the show Arrow already knows this by now but the Flash will be coming on the show. Well guess what, here's an image of him in the suit, kind of, since what's shown is a side profile of his head. Though I got to admit, it's a very, very, cool looking Flash. Just take a look.

Yeah, I think this could be turned into his own show, at least from this first look.

I just watched the Marvel One Shot that was included on the Thor: The Dark World Blu Ray set and I was surprised at the turn it took. I was expecting a short about the history of this guy, Trevor Slattery, you know him as the Mandarin in Iron Man 3. Which there is some, very slight, back story about him, but the one shot turned into being a completely different thing.
Don't worry if you haven't seen it I'm not going to spoil it but I got to admit I'm now wondering how Marvel is going to use this in the future of the Marvel movies. Will it happen? With Iron Man basically being done with Downy playing him, will the outcome of All Hail the King happen in another movie? If so, what movie would it be put in? Could work in a Doctor Strange movie if Marvel actually makes one. My point is, if you liked Ben Kingsley as Mandarin and you haven't watched this one shot, you really need to.

If you don't get that reference it's similar to what Rocket Raccoon is always saying he is not. That is he's not a raccoon. Which he is not, he's an alien race from a very far off world that has been engineered to have the ability to talk and walk on two legs. He's a pretty tough character that I've liked for a long while. Could be the fact that Rocket is a smartass that makes sarcastic remarks and is really tough, which it is. It could also be the fact that he's best friends with Groot, which means if you see Rocket then there's a really good chance you will be seeing Groot. Which is also why I like him. But he is still a cool character.
Which is why I think Marvel is going to release a on-going series for Rocket Raccoon in July of 2014. It will be written and drawn by Skottie Young, who is a really good artist, one that I've been following for a few years now. The comic is going to have Rocket going on adventures that will showcase his animal side and his fun side. Not much is known about it right now, at least for me, but I have high hopes for this title.
