Television properties for DC have gained momentum after they gained four pickups for new series this upfront season. With the upcoming Man of Steel sequel in the works at Warner Bros., which owns DC Comics, some fans have speculated whether popular characters would jump between formats.
“We will not be integrating the film and television universes,” said Geoff Johns, Chief Creative Officer of DC Comics. “It’s a separate universe than film so that the filmmakers can tell the story that’s best for film while we explore something different in a different corner of the DC universe.”
Stephen Amell, who plays the title character in CW’s Arrow, has repeatedly stated he would not appear in Justice League, despite fan assertions. Rumors have also circulated about the possibility of Wonder Woman running in two formats after her confirmation in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
“If she is and we can get the right script we will do it,” Pedowitz, President of the CW, said at the panel.
