The 'SUPERMAN Vs BATMAN' Film's Impact On 'ARROW'

"Arrow" executive producers Andrew Kreisberg and Marc Guggenheim discuss how the recent announcement of a "Superman vs Batman" film impacts their quest to get Nightwing on the show.

"Arrow" dynamic-duo producer team Andrew Kreisberg and Marc Guggenhem say that Dick Grayson's Nightwing is the "Holy Grail" of cameos for "Arrow's" writing team. However, the duo shared, "We've heard the fans and we're very well aware that they would like to see Nightwing and various other Bat-characters on the show. [But] that is a little bit out of our control, [and] I think [that movie] announcement made it a lot more out of our control!" Reading between the lines, it's probably a safe bet to say that "Arrow" will not be connected to DC Entertainment's budding cinematic universe. It really makes the most sense, as "Arrow" airs on The CW and if you look at the network's lineup of primetime shows, there's an element of "soap opera" in all their programs that just doesn't lend itself to extending into a much more realistic/natural fictional world like the one Zack Snyder and David S. Goyer created in "Man of Steel."

"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."
