The CW to Adapt More DC Comic Characters
With both of its DC titled TV shows, “Arrow” Season 3 and “The Flash” proving successful in their premieres, especially with “The Flash”’s record-setting ratings, the network, CW feels rather tempted to produce another high quality DC title show. For more details on this story read on.
“There are discussions going on, but I can’t tell you what they are,” said CW president Mark Pedowitz in an interview with BuzzFeed.said CW president Mark Pedowitz in an interview with BuzzFeed.
Arrow in its first 2 seasons has become CW’s most watched show, having an average of 3.8 million viewers in Nielsen’s Live + 7 ratings, airing its Season 3 premiere this week which ended with a shocker.
“The Flash,” the spin-off of “Arrow,” was aired is pilot a day earlier than Arrow. It was proved to perform incredibly well, setting up a record with 4.5 million viewers on Tuesday night. It’s no wonder why executives at CW, DC and WB are eyeing for another superhero-led series, with all the other superhero based shows and what not, that has been dominating today’s TV. This includes “The Walking Dead” from AMC, “Gotham” from FOX, Marvel’s “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D” from ABC, and the upcoming “Constantine” from NBC.
CW has been casting up a lot of DC characters in their shows, especially the hero-kind including Brandon Routh as Ray Palmer/The Atom (Brandon Routh) in “Arrow” and Robbie Amell as Ronnie Raymond/Firestorm in “The Flash.”
If CW’s plan to air a third superhero show comes through, it’s just safe to bet that these two might be suitable candidates of having their own show. Amell previously confirmed his upcoming role through a series of pictures in his Facebook page. Click here and here to see the pics.
Other candidates to put some thought on are DC characters “Hourman” and “Amazon,” which Warner Brothers has confirmed their working out on. On the other hand, “The Flash”‘s Andrew Kreisberg has written up for a “Booster Gold” pilot for SyFy which supposedly he’ll be producing.
And that’s a wrap for CW considering airing another DC Comics character show. For more updates on celebrities, events, TV shows and upcoming movies stay tuned here on Movie News Guide (MNG).
