While there had been rumblings of another DC Universe show coming to the CW, maybe the Atom or Firestorm, nobody thought it would be something as ambitious as this. It appears that not one, but several DC Comics superheroes are going to be uniting in a potential new action/drama series at the CW, a spin-off from both Arrow and The Flash that will feature several recurring actors/characters from both shows. Who saw that coming?
The CW is teaming with Arrow creators Greg Berlanti, Andrew Kreisberg and Marc Guggenheim for a project being looked at for next season starring Brandon Routh, Victor Garber, Wentworth Miller, and Caity Lotz. Fans of the respective shows they’re from know that means a show featuring the Atom, Firestorm, Captain Cold and (SPOILERS) the first Black Canary, back from the dead? Additionally, three other as-yet unnamed DC characters, none of which reportedly have appeared before in live-action, are set to star in the show as well. Start your guessing now, DC geeks!
The show doesn’t have a title yet, although all of those characters have been members of the Justice League in the comics (yes, even Captain Cold). Obviously, the name Justice League has been reserved for the movies, but what else can they call it? Titans is going to be taken soon. And they’re all too old to be called Young Justice. Other characters from both The Flash and Arrow are expected to show up as well. There is a possibility that this could go straight to series and skip the pilot stage, possibly as early as next year’s mid-season.
So what do you think, DC fans? Got any ideas of who those three mystery DC characters could be? Let us know in the comments below!
