Taken from Bleedingcool.com:
Some pretty interesting DC Comics-related tv news has been spinning out of the Television Critics Association press tour today. TV Guide has a consise rundown of events:
- “Episodes 8 of both shows, Arrow and Flash, are going to be a two-hour crossover event,” Kreisberg says.
- “DC’s Geoff Johns says DC wants to keep its film and TV universes separate. Doesn’t want TV writers to try to fit shows into the movies”
- Prison Break star Wentworth Miller to play Flash Villain Captain Cold.
- Geoff Johns also says that The Flash tv series will be ”the most faithful DC Comics adaptation ever”
IGN followed up with Johns on the “separate universes” point, and he told them, “You’ll see a lot of DC universe characters [on The Flash and Arrow]. You won’t see Batman or Superman. We’re on production on Batman V Superman now. So you’ll see characters like The Atom or Firestorm, but no not Batman or Superman right now [on TV].”
But… longer term, just perhaps adding a little fuel to the rumor fire that DC may be leading up to an annual Justice League television mini-series event which could be announced San Diego this year, exec producer Greg Berlanti also adds: Also, the producers are aiming high up on the DC roster. “Between [Arrow and Flash], we’ll have half the Justice League on our two shows this year,”
Add that to a tidbit you can see here if you don’t mind spoilers spoilers spoilers and that might be a little glimpse as to where they’re going with this.
