CW's Arrow Producer Andrew Kreisberg Says "Never Say Never" to Superpowers Appearing on the Show.

The CW's Arrow has been known for it's "realistic" approach to the DC universe, having been inspired by the Christopher Nolan take on The Dark Knight, but it looks as though the producers may yet change their mind. Hit the jump for more info!

The CW's Arrow has been known (whether positively or negatively) for it's realistic approach to the DC universe, taking previously super-powered characters such as the Royal Flush Gang, Count Vertigo, Black Canary, etc and turning them into regular, non-powered people. Many fans feel as though this is limiting the renowned series, as the DC universe is huge and known for there iconic characters. But "never say never", as when asked about powers possibly appearing on the show, this is what series producer had to say.

There you have it. Many people have guessed that when Count Vertigo returns to the show, he will have as close as Arrow will come to superhuman abilities. Looks like anything is a possibility on this show, so for more on Arrow , keep an eye out here at CBM.

After a violent shipwreck, billionaire playboy Oliver Queen was missing and presumed dead for five years before being discovered alive on a remote island in the Pacific. When he returns home to Starling City, his devoted mother Moira, much-beloved sister Thea, and best friend Tommy welcome him home, but they sense Oliver has been changed by his ordeal on the island. While Oliver hides the truth about the man he’s become, he desperately wants to make amends for the actions he took as the boy he was. Most particularly, he seeks reconciliation with his former girlfriend, Laurel Lance. As Oliver reconnects with those closest to him, he secretly creates the persona of Arrow – a vigilante – to right the wrongs of his family, fight the ills of society, and restore Starling City to its former glory. By day, Oliver plays the role of a wealthy, carefree and careless philanderer he used to be – flanked by his devoted chauffeur/bodyguard, John Diggle – while carefully concealing the secret identity he turns to under cover of darkness. However, Laurel’s father, Detective Quentin Lance, is determined to arrest the vigilante operating in his city. Meanwhile, Oliver’s own mother, Moira, knows much more about the deadly shipwreck than she has let on – and is more ruthless than he could ever imagine.

Why would they tie it to mos? People said the same thing about batman begins and smallville. There was a rumor that welling had a cameo in begins before it came out. Tv and movies rarely cross over

I'm loving Arrow, but I don't want it to crossover with anything else. Arrow has killed way too many people to ever be accepted with Superman or Batman. There's no way for the writers to ever get out of that situation. There is no statute of limitations on murder, and no such thing as self defense when you are the one who goes looking for trouble.

It would be odd trying to shoehorn powers into a show that takes it's cues from Nolan's school of realism and has never even alluded to the mystical paranormal supernatural or otherwise.

Oh, and firefly was a burns-victim firefighter that was talked into self-sacrifice redemption at his hour of revenge and went out like a punk!? - whaaaat ?! O.o

No way in hell this show ties in to MoS.

I get kinda depressed when an editor comments on my article and doesn't put it on main lol. I think it would be cool to have Arrow be in the same universe as MoS. Maybe during the movie when Zod and Supes are having there epic battle, they do a panel of people looking worried and scared watching it on TV. They could show Oliver, Diggle, and his family (played by the same actors) watching the battle live. The scene would only last a few seconds, and only a certain number of people would get that that was Oliver Queen.

"The CW's Arrow has been known for it's "realistic" approach to the DC universe, having been inspired by the Christopher Nolan take on The Dark Knight, "

Visually and tonally it definitely owes a lot to Nolan's Batman, but the "realistic" approach the show takes is borrowed straight from Mike Grell's Green Arrow run and predates Chris Nolan by almost two decades.

The Dark Knight Trilogy's success opened the door for what was already there. It'll be interesting to see what other writers and runs they look from the comics should they choose to start evolving Arrow away from the Grell mold, as there's a lot of fantastic material to work from.

The show has been great. But they need to lose the idea that they must keep constantly introducing more elements from the DC universe.
The show has a great cast and most of them could use more attention.
As a fan I'd love to see more development of Diggs, Deathstroke and others more than capes and characters like Birdboy and etc.
