With all the superhero content bouncing off the walls these days (on both the Film and TV fronts), sometimes it’s hard to keep all this awesomeness straight. However, the real question on everyone’s minds is, when will we start seeing some crossover stuff happening?!
DC has certainly set the television world on fire (sorry Agents of Shield but this is DC’s game to lose right now), with shows like Arrow, Flash, Gotham and a myriad of others. In a recent interview, actor Geoff Johns reveals how they plan to keep all these wires straight (and when a small screen to silver screen multiverse idea could come about). “We had talked about it previously being distinct, but I can’t really talk about the films. We haven’t really gone into detail about what that stuff is so I don’t want to get too detailed yet…We look at it as the multiverse. We have our TV universe and our film universe, but they all co-exist. For us, creatively, it’s about allowing everyone to make the best possible product…Maybe one day we’ll link a show to a film if it makes sense, but the creative process we’re going through right now is to let the stuff live and breathe and be its own thing and own it.” Johns touts.
One aspect of the DC Universe Johns feels is sorely overlooked right now are franchises starring those of the female persuasion. Later, Johns talked about the Supergirl series currently in-development, stating, “It’s well past time there’s a female superhero out there, both in film and on television, and it’s awesome that we’re on the forefront of that… “
