Jessica De Gouw returned to The CW‘s DC Universe based series Arrow last night as the revenge-obsessed Helena Bertinelli AKA “Huntress” after disappearing from the show for a year.

And it seems like if Arrow executive producer Marc Guggenheim has his way, fans will be seeing much more of the leather-clad crossbow wielding vigilante in the future. (more…)

Before we all got bogged down in this Gal Gadot and “Are her boobs big enough to play Wonder Woman?” nonsense, there was an idea to get Wonder Woman back on our TV’s and I’m not referring to the Adrianne Palicki version. When Arrow became a hit last fall, The CW wondered (hehe) what other superhero characters they could give the “Year One” treatment, and they liked one pitch called Amazon. Although it wasn’t ready for this past fall, many believed that the netlet would give it another go, but today at the Television Critics Association Press Tour, CW bosses said for the record that Amazon is no more.

The CW might as well change it’s name to “The DC” if this trends keep going the way they are. Bleeding Cool is hearing that Warner Bros has another DC Comics property warming up in the bullpen, which is already pretty full with series based on The Flash, Hourman and iZombie all warming up.

If this keeps up, The CW may have to change its network initials to “DC.” Already enjoying success with Arrow, which is soon to spin-off The Flash and is now currently plugging away on an Hourman series, the netlet is looking to add a new series based on the Vertigo imprint comic iZOMBIE.

Marc Guggenheim Talks ‘The Flash’; Expanding The DC Television Universe

- 08-14-13Comics, TV Posted by Luke Gallagher

As a fan of the darker trend of superhero interpretations we’ve been getting lately, it’s needless to say that I was a huge fan of Arrow. Sure, much of it was surprisingly similar to Christopher Nolan’s Batman films in terms of tone and realism, and I remember that a few of the episodes even had the same overall messages as the Dark Knight series. Despite this, the show was thoroughly entertaining, so I was ecstatic when I heard they were renewing for a second season, as usually every show I start to like gets canceled too soon. The idea of a second season got me thinking about how this could be a chance for DC to match Marvel’s intertwined cinematic universe, and while they may not be doing exactly as I’d hoped, the confirmed introduction of The Flash in Arrow‘s second season is a step in the right direction.
In a recent interview, writer and executive producer of Arrow, Marc Guggenheim, talked about some of the changes the second season will bring, from expanding DC’s television universe, to how an actual “super powered” hero might affect the tone of the show.
When it came to expanding further into DC’s vault of characters, Guggenheim claimed that it was never in their original playbook to introduce characters like Deathstroke and The Huntress as early as the first season; “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.” That’s an interesting thought, seeing as the island storyline, which heavily focused on Deathstroke, and The Huntress arc were my favorite stories coming out of the first season. With Black Canary, Bronze Tiger and Brother Blood announced to be showing up as well, I’m inclined to think that they will only bring more quality stories to the show.
With a shared universe most definitely planned, the question will inevitably arise “How is a show, which is based in reality, going to showcase someone with ‘super powers?’” Well, the answer is actually the most obvious, at least, in the post-Avengers world; Guggenheim simply explains “‘Arrow’ is like ‘Iron Man’ where ‘The Flash’ will be ‘The Hulk.’” Well, you can’t really argue with that logic, and he’s sure not hiding the fact that a clear solution has already been established. So, what do you think? Are you looking forward to seeing a bit of expansion in the DC Television Universe?
