    Oh, I thought you were talking in general.

    Hmm, maybe a Birds of Prey spin-off? Hopefully better than the last one...

    Thanks for the heads up about this, this is the first I've heard of it. Looks like a great cast!

    That second part pleases me greatly. Thanks for this.

    It's been confirmed that they'll be able to cross over though, so it'll at least be in the same universe.

    I'm very skeptical that we'll get another superhero show on the CW soon. They said the reason they passed on Supergirl was that they didn't want to become one thing. So wouldn't that mean they passed on the show because they didn't want to become the DC channel? I doubt we'll get another DC show while Arrow and Flash are still on air.

    What would the angle be though? Don't want to see Vancouver stand-in again.

    Hopefully they change the formula a bit more. Something like Fringe would be cool. Investigating scientific accidents and stuff.

    Arrow is probably ending in two more seasons. Flash has higher demos.

    They said that are wanting to expand the universe more with another show. I think the want at least 1 more show.

    I doubt it will be ending it that soon. They've said they have a five-year plan but that doesn't mean they have to stop at 5. Supernatural just got renewed for an 11th season too, so I don't think The CW will have any plans on ending Arrow anytime soon, they'll probably keep it going for awhile.

    I highly doubt that. I would be surprised if it did. But CW will keep it at least 7 seasons.

    They didn't say when. I'm willing to bet that third show won't be until Arrow ends.

    Did they make those comments recently? Is there any way they were referring to the Vixen animated series as the expansion of the universe?

    They won't be waiting for the show to end to start another one, especially when they are getting good ratings with them.

    Yeah, but I think they want to replicate Flash's upbeat style and Arrow's universe won't allow it.

    Palmer so far is more in the Flash mold. Atom wouldn't be ready until Arrow is in season 4 so they would have a year to see how Atom does to make a decision.

    Cw is a channel that is happy to have shows run for as long as they want as long as the ratings are good. Smallville lasted 10 seasons, Supernatural 11 seasons, Vampire Diaries is probably about to have a 7th, I think if the writers have the ideas for Arrow beyond a 5th season we could easily be looking at a 7-8 season show.

    It doesn't have to be either/or.

    I agree. I'll be very surprised if the second half isn't stronger.

    Seconded.

    If it'll only be as good as The Flash, count me out as well. I like Routh, but not that much.

    Oooo. That could either be very good or very bad. Either way, the fan reaction is bound to be entertaining.

    I fear that a massive drop in quality is inevitable if they keep the series running for too long. Both SPN and TVD are perfect examples of such.

    I think the challenge would be attractive to a confident set of writers, to try and work on The Atom. I wonder if the hype of the upcoming Ant-Man movie, with the trailers generating buzz, might be a motivation in pushing forward a character that's already been introduced to the audience.

    I could see the higher ups thinking about that. And, you tell any creative team to work on a character like The Atom, and they'll say yes. He does have a lot of history, too, he was created by a group of DC Comics legends.

    That's what I was wondering about. I'm not familiar with Atom at all, but aren't his powers similar to Ant Man?

    In the sense they shrink, yes. But Atom can get smaller, do more ****. And he killed Darkseid. So there's that.

    The idea of an Atom show worries me. Apart from just not finding the character to be interesting on this show, I feel the quality on Arrow dropped around when they started working on Flash and I hope that an Atom show wouldn't cause the same to happen with Flash.
