Berlanti Confirms No Discussions to Connect Arrow to DC Films
November 23, 2013
It's been a bit of a dream for many fans that The CW's hit series "Arrow" is somehow connected to the now growing DC cinematic universe. Even star Stephen Amell has mentioned wanting to appear alongside Superman and Batman on the big screen, but unfortunately it seems like that's not in the cards at the moment.
Speaking with Fandango, Executive Producer Greg Berlanti says there have been no discussions between the creatives on "Arrow" and the decision makers at Warner Bros. about folding them together.
“We haven't had any of those conversations other than to say, what characters are we allowed to use this year and advocate or request certain ones that are of interest to us. And every now and then, they'll say, 'You can't have that guy.' They don't say why, and we figure out why later on.”
Now this doesn't mean that it won't eventually happen, especially if the fan demand continues to grow as it has, but at the time it would appear the two entities will remain separate.
