DC Eyeing Teamup Series at the CW
Deadline is reporting that the CW and Warner Bros. Television are in development of another spinoff in the Arrow and Flash universe. The idea behind the project seems to be a superhero team-up show in the vein of The Brave and the Bold (the comics version, not the awesome-but-silly Batman cartoon). Announced to star were series veterans Brandon Routh (The Atom), Victor Garber (Firestorm) Wentworth Miller (Captain Cold), and Caity Lotz (Black Canary).
Some thoughts, with major Arrow and Flash spoilers in them, after the jump.
The fact that they've announced this series with such an eclectic cast of characters including the villainous Captain Cold, the currently-combined-with-the-not-announced-Robbie-Armell Martin Stein, and the currently-very-dead Sara Lance, seems to imply that this will be a TV version of the traditional superhero team-up comics. The show may involve non-linear storytelling, giving us a tale of Sara Lance's days with the League of Assassins, while Martin Stein helps The Atom with a problem in the modern day. And that could be very, very cool.
We'll wait and see as more information develops.
