Arrow/Flash Spinoff

I don’t know where to begin with this one, so let’s just lay out what we know.

Simply said, as teased at the January Television Critics Association press tour, The CW is developing a series that would spin off recurring characters from Arrow and The Flash as some sort of DC Comics “superhero team-up” hour, our sister site Deadline reports.

What’s known: Arrow‘s Brandon Routh (who plays Ray/The A.T.O.M.) and Caity Lotz (formerly Sara/Canary) would star in the offshoot, as would The Flash‘s Wentworth Miller (Leonard Snart/Captain Cold) and Victor Garber (Dr. Martin Stein aka half of Firestorm).

Because Lotz’s character died on Arrow, it’s unclear what role, old/resurrected or new, she would play.

Also known: The project, Deadline says, would feature three “major” DC Comics characters that have never appeared on a TV series. (Live action presumably being the unsaid qualifier there, but I’m just spitballing.)

Lastly, known: Arrow/Flash EPs Greg Berlanti, Andrew Kreisberg and Marc Guggenheim are, of course, behind the project, which could skip the traditional pilot process and get ordered straight to series.

Well, my fellow Arrow/Flash peeps.  I have to admit, I find this news a little confusing.  I had heard that the ATOM was being groomed for a spinoff.  Which I liked that idea.  Who doesn't want to see a half naked Brandon Routh changing in and out of the ATOM outfit.  YUM(Thinking of this last Arrow episode with him in it...Oh BABY!!!)

But what gets me is that it's going to be a show with tons of people...a group of people.  Sara/Canary is dead...so how does THAT work.  The other half of Firestorm...needs the first half of Firestorm.  I guess Victor Garber could be working as their science expert.  It just feels so hod podgie.

What do you guys think??

As for The Canary I don't get that one either. She's dead. 

What do you guys think??

They might as well call the show Justice League and bring in Batman, Wonder Woman, Superman, Aquaman, The Wonder Twins, and all the other DC comics.

Interesting, I don't know how to feel about this
