True dat.

His appearance on GA TV was neat. The Flash TV show would probably benefit LOTS if ANY ONE of the movie line-up of Suicide Squad showed up:

I miss Dad and Dan.

Yes, shows like The Flash and Arrow have generally done a decent job in translating characters from the comicbook to screen, I hear Mr Terrific is due in Arrow and it was a surprise to see them tackle a character as flamboyant as Firestorm, so nothing is off the table in terms of possible targets to introduce. What does worry me more and more is when Warner Bros and Marvel put out one too many shows and the genre turns sour with the audiences. What a collapse in screen confidence like that would mean for the comicbooks I don't like to think about.

Incidentally, I saw the trailer for the Suicide Squad film and... well, this is one hell of a risk for a company to take! No idea what to make of this film. It looks like it could be another Jonah Hex bomb, but on the other hand might just be the wildcard the audience takes to, as with Gurdians of the Galaxy. Still, that trailer lacked any hook for me, I don't think this will sell itself to the audience as it is too bizarre and hard to access. Not helped by the fact this is a bunch of murderous insame freaks of course... it doesn't sell itself as a commercial proposition for pulling a mass audience.
