ARROW EP On The Show Connecting To DC TV Shows On Other Networks
The various DC Entertainment television show producers have echoed the same 'verbage' from DC Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns that the shows will not connect to the film universe established in Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice. But what about one another?
During the Summer 2014 TCA Press Tour, the various DC Entertainment television shows, Arrow, Flash, Gotham and Constantine, have all been questioned by the media about whether the shows will connect or hint at the events of Man of Steel and Batman v. Superman, similar to how ABC's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. connects to the Marvel Cinematic Univserse. The answer to that question is no, Johns and the various showrunners have stated that they view the DC TV shows as seperate continuity from the film universe currently being established by Zack Snyder and co. Ok. So what about establishing a tv universe, across the various networks, that's seperate from the film universe?
Said Arrow EP Marc Guggenheim on the chances of The CW's Arrow connecting to NBC's Constantine, "When we do our Easter eggs, they’re never in conjunction with other DC Easter eggs" said the writer and showrunner, going on to add that "only Arrow and Flash are connected."
To be fair, the idea of characters from one televion network's show appearing on another network's television show is not an unkown phenomenon, it has happened many times before. But right now, it appears that this is not the case for the DC superhero dramas currently airing on The CW, NBC and Fox.
