Geoff Johns Says DC Comics Keeping Film And TV Universes Separate
While there’s been a big debate in the comic book fan community over whether DC Comics should cross over their film universe being built with Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice and their TV universe being built with Arrow and The Flash, it seems that DC Comics has a very strong opinion on the matter.
According to a TV Guide tweet, DC Comics Geoff Johns said today at the Television Critics Association’s semi-annual press tour session that DC wants to keep its film and TV universes separate. The reason being is that DC doesn't want TV writers to have to try to fit shows into the movies.
Earlier this month, Arrow’s Stephen Amell addressed rumors that he might appear in Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice after he teased big news at Comic-Con. Amell wrote, “I appreciate all the support and enthusiasm, but not everything I post is a cryptic indicator that I'm going to be in Batman V Superman. I'm not going to be in Batman V Superman.”
However, just because Amell wasn’t going to be in Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice, some fans still held out hope that the TV and movie universes might crossover in an eventual Justice League movie. But John’s comments seemed to confirm once and for all that DC Comics is going to keep their film and TV universes separate from each other.
