With rumors accelerating month by month as to what exactly “Superman vs. Batman” will be whether that be in fact a Justice League Movie or the first step towards a Justice League Movie .At the moment it is all largely sketchy especially in regards to The Flash and Green Arrow that are already established among fans from the TV shows, whether they will play a part. Recent comments by Arrow star Steven Amell would seem to point towards such discussions having taking place.
Movie website Fandango featured a piece on it and the Arrow star is quoted as saying “All we have to do for something like that to happen, or even be a possibility, is continue to take care of business with our show and then we put ourselves in a position – but the important thing is our show,”
Which sounds rather non-committal apart from he later added to that (and almost seemingly confirmed talks have taking place “I have had discussions, but I think the gestation process for this project is a lot slower than most people think. I mean, they haven’t even shot the next one. They haven’t even shot a frame of the movie before the movie everyone thinks is the Justice League movie!”
With potential castings being thrown around for everyone from Green Lantern to Aquaman, One has to wonder why Flash and Arrow haven’t yet been thrown into the the mix. Unless of course there are already plans afoot for both of them.
If the world of Arrow were to be incorporated into the world set in Man of Steel this opens the doors for everything from STAR Labs, Deathstroke, Black Canary and more to be brought over with little buildup required as that has already taken place onscreen.
Added to that the mixed feelings Marvel Studio’s have met launching “Agent’s of SHIELD” off the back of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, This would seemingly work in reverse adding to the set continuity of DC’s shared movie universe rather than playing around with what has been established.
But there are a lot of doubters of the ARROW show (myself included) given the liberties taken with the source material. It begs the question can it be married up with the DC’s Movie Universe?
