Will Green ARROW Be Visited By The AMAZON Princess Known As Wonder Woman?
The news about The CW developing a Wonder Woman show was revealed just last week but the Green Arrow camp are already fielding questions about the potential for a crossover.
The executive producer team of Andrew Kinsberg, Marc Guggenheim and Greg Berlanti have been pretty consistent in stating that while virtually the entire roster from DC comics are on the table for cameos, they're grounding Arrow in reality and staying away from fantastical characters like Superman, Green Lantern and.....Wonder Woman. Well, that was before the news story dropped that the CW was developing another super hero origin series but this time focusing on Wonder Woman. Allan Heinberg is currently developing the show which was described as "Wonder Woman as a young, budding superhero, rather than a fully formed defender of liberty." This could all be premature as the CW has only committed to a script at this point but if a show is greenlit a crossover episode seems inevitable.
Said Executive Producer Andrew Kinsberg about the chances of a crossover-
“Our show definitely takes place in a much more realistic world. There’s no superpowers, superheroes and aliens. With Wonder Woman, Diana of Themyscira, there are superpowers. I don’t foresee crossovers but one of the great things about superheroes is that they’re constantly being reimagined. There’s the Adam West and Christopher Nolan versions of Batman and one doesn’t obviate the other. The Lynda Carter version was great and now the CW is hopefully developing another wonderful version that will be a nice compliment to Arrow.”
Arrow star Stephen Amell addresses the crossover potential-
“As long as she doesn’t have superpowers, then we’re good!”
Wonder Woman is a character in desperate need of some mainstream media attention. The coverage on the recent Superman/Wonder Woman kiss in the pages of DC's Justice League series was proof that there's still interest in the character and Warner Bros. would be smart to capitalize by getting their preeminent female super hero on television and/or movie screens before Marvel beats them to the punch with Ms. Marvel or She-Hulk(sorry, Black Widow doesn't have any super powers so she doesn't count). What do you guys think, if 'Amazon' is greenlit would you like to see the shows crossover?
Arrow premiers October 10th on the CW.
