Arrow Executive Producer Explains How The Flash TV Show Will Share Their Universe

Arrow Executive Producer Explains How The Flash TV Show Will Share Their Universe | Super Heroes In Theaters Near You | Scoop.it
When DC and CW announced that they would pursue a The Flash television series that not only drew on the success of current CW offering Arrow, but took place in the same universe, certain questions arose.

 

If Arrow does take place in the same universe as the new Flash series, how will the show runners deal with the relatively super-powerless world of Arrow? Why did the CW put Amazon, their planned Wonder Woman show, on hold for the new Flash series? Will Arrow and the new Flash show cross over at any point after The Flash gets his own show? Well, two of these questions now have answers, thanks to Arrow executive producer Marc Guggenheim.

In an interview with Comic Book Resources, the writer and producer described how The Flash and Arrow could be integrated into the same universe, using Marvel as an example. The shows will certainly have a link, as the Flash will be introduced to Arrow first, before his own show premieres. Still, Guggenheim wants to keep the two shows unique, saying to Comic Book Resources:

 

"I think a lot of people are justified in asking ‘What does this mean for Arrow in terms of its tone?’ And my answer is that the trick that we have – and this is a challenge we’ve discusses a lot and have an awareness of how to face it head on – is the fact that Arrow is like Iron Man where The Flash will be The Hulk. And just as The Hulk coming out did not change the tone of the Iron Man movies, The Flash will not change the tone of Arrow. We’re very cognizant of what Arrow is all about, and I think the Marvel movies demonstrate that each piece of a universe can have its own feel. Thor is consistent with the tone of Thor while Captain America is consistent with the tone of Captain America’s character. Arrow’s tone will remain consistent much in the same way, and we are looking forward to expanding our canvass a bit. And judging from the announcement, I think the fans are looking forward to it as well."

 

What Guggenheim says makes sense, and gives us some hope that the DC universe might expand on television like the Marvel universe has in film. The Marvel comparison certainly indicated the possibility of Wonder Woman as another addition to the gang at some point. Of course, Guggenheim’s partner on Arrow, Andrew Kreisberg will be responsible for writing the Flash into the universe, so his sentiments on the integration of new characters are likely very similar. Guggenheim explained to Comic Book Resources that expansion was not the original plan with the relatively grounded Arrow:

 

"But at the same time, quite frankly, we didn’t plan to expand the DC Universe so much in the first season of ‘Arrow.’ For example, Greg [Berlanti], Andrew [Kreisberg] and myself never said ‘In the first season of this show, we’re going to introduce the Huntress and Deathstroke.’ We really didn’t have that plan. We were hoping to one day get to those characters, but we never thought it’d happen as quickly as it did."

Arrow Season 2 Spoilers: Stephen Amell, More DC Heroes, Manu Bennett; More ... - International Business Times AU

Arrow Season 2 Spoilers: Stephen Amell, More DC Heroes, Manu Bennett; More ... - International Business Times AU | Super Heroes In Theaters Near You | Scoop.it

Arrow Season 2 is not going to dial down on action scenes after Tommy's death. Things will start a bit slow for Stephen Amell's grieving Oliver Queen, but he will get back on track soon enough. New series regulars Manu Bennett and Colton Haynes will have more scenes to delight the fans. It's turning out to be an all-hunks season with a promise of seeing "a lot of comic book characters." Fans can catch the cast of Arrow in this years international comic-con in San Diego (SDCC). The cast will answer questions about the future of the series. The TV journey of Oliver Queen from the Hood Guy to Arrow to Green Arrow will be filled with surprises, as what happened Arrow Season 1. David Ramsey's Diggle is expected to help the Hood in a very difficult time of grieving when Arrow Season 2 begins. Paul Blackthorne's Quentin Lance will have some life and career re-evaluation to do. He's certainly seeing the Hood Guy in a whole new way now. It is not clear whether there'd be more of John Barrowman's Malcolm Merlyn. Oliver tells his dying best friend he did not kill his father, but dad Merlyn seems to have met his end, anyway. From a recurring flashback role, Manu Bennett's regular cast status promotion promises extra action-packed scenes with Slade Wilson. The same goes with Colton Haynes, whose Roy Harper character is already showing signs of heroism in a chaotic time. So much is going on for the 'Arrow' hunks, as if Amell's abs are not enough. On a serious note, what excites DC Comics fans is the hinted arrival of more DC heroes in the series.

Fun to see baddies get their dues

Fun to see baddies get their dues | Super Heroes In Theaters Near You | Scoop.it

You don't have to look far these days for tales of high-powered greed and corruption.

 

So last night's premiere episode of stylish action series Arrow (Wednesdays, 9.35pm, TV2) felt topical. Its vigilante superhero is fixated on society's less scrupulous business people. Sure he might have a name that sounds like a courier company, but he's perfect for our cynical recession hit world. Think Batman but with an impressive archery set.

 

Like all good comic book characters, by day Green Arrow has a different persona as easy on the eye, billionaire playboy Oliver Queen (played perfectly by Canadian Stephen Amell). Flashbacks showed us tantalising glimpses of Oliver's ill-fated jaunt on his father's private yacht. His father drowned and Oliver ended up shipwrecked alone on a jagged, rocky island for five years. I can't imagine how awful that would be - camping is bad enough but at least you've got a tent and travel Scrabble.

 

Anyway, rather than going mad and contracting scurvy Oliver managed to get incredibly buff and develop some extraordinary archery skills. Back in Starling City he set about working through a list that his father had given him of people that "had brought the city to its knees".

 

Last night's target, Adam Hunt, was a nasty piece of work and we all like to see a nasty piece of work get his comeuppance. Which Queen delivered by leaping through his window in a green hood scaring the hell out of him. Then he made $40 million disappear from Hunt's bank account quicker than the most adept rogue trader.

Colton Haynes again hints at more comic characters making their TV debut.

 

The Roy Harper actor told flicksandthecitythat his character will have to "go through a little gamut" before he can partner up with crime-fighter Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell).

 

"He's going to have to go through a lot to experience the level that Oliver has, because he was fighting for his life for five years," Haynes said.

"I'm thinking Roy's going to have to be beat down a lot before he gets built back up."

The former Teen Wolf star previously hinted that Arrow's new season could feature a "team" of DC Comics heroes, sparking speculation that the Justice League could appear on the show.

"You're going to see a lot of [DC] comic book characters that people love coming into the world of Arrow," Haynes confirmed."

'Shazam!' Remembering when superheroes weren't quite so cool

'Shazam!' Remembering when superheroes weren't quite so cool | Super Heroes In Theaters Near You | Scoop.it
PERSPECTIVE When the CW’s breakout hit series “Arrow” returns with new episodes on April 24, viewers can expect more soapy drama mixed with dark action thrills involving Stephen Amell as the handsome playboy-turned-vigilante Oliver Queen. Though the series makes plenty of concessions for non-comic book readers (an emphasis on Queen’s dating life, for instance), there’s still plenty of comic book history on display. Characters and concepts from Green Arrow’s 70 years of history pop up, but grounded in a gritty, realistic style (a la Christopher Nolan’s take on the Batman universe).

 

The success of “Arrow” and its accessible take on comic canon is a reminder of how far we’ve come with superheroes on television from the days when TV producers seemed to try as hard as they could to make superheroes non-super. Consider, if you will, “Shazam!”

 

In 1939, Bill Parker and C.C. Beck created Captain Marvel: an imposing caped superhero graced with the wisdom of Solomon, the strength of Hercules, the stamina of Atlas, the power of Zeus, the courage of Achilles and the speed of Mercury. Whenever fresh-faced teenage newsboy Billy Batson yelled “shazam!” he’d transform into Captain Marvel, to fight mad scientists, evil robots and super-intelligent alien worms."

Interesting article. -

 

In the midst of the massive geek Mecca that is San Diego Comic-Con, the big Marvel Studios movie panel had all the theater of a presidential campaign rally. Tom Hiddleston appeared in costume as Loki, the bad guy from Thor, and rallied the crowd in character. Then: so many movie stars, including the full casts of the upcoming Captain America sequel and Guardians of the Galaxy. And just when it seemed like it was over, Joss Whedon, patron saint of nerds, walked out for a Steve Jobsian one-more-thing and introduced the first teaser for The Avengers sequel. Eight thousand fans, some of whom had been waiting in line since the night before, shrieked like their souls were being ripped from their bodies.
