In addition to Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl and Riverdale in 2015, producer Greg Berlanti has confirmed reports that a new superhero team-up series is headed to the small screen under his watch.
Reports started emerging as of last Wednesday that Firestorm, The Atom and other CWverse characters would team-up onscreen for an as-yet-untitled spinoff series. Berlanti has confirmed the rumors via twitter hashtagged Superhero Team-Up:.
That's likely not the final name; Marvel and DC co-own the trademark on the phrase "superhero," but it still sounds like a generic enough name that it would be difficult to imagine it standing out on a schedule.
Deadline broke the news with a report that after the successes of both shows, another tv series set in the same superhero universe as the two is currently in the works. Though it may not be set in either Starling City or Central City (we’re not sure where, as of yet). But several actors from both shows are reportedly set to reprise their roles in the new series:
Brandon Routh, Ray Palmer/The Atom, Victor Garber, Dr. Martin Stein; Wentworth Miller, resident Flash villain Leonard Snart, aka “Captain Cold”; and Caity Lotz, who played Sara Lance/Black Canary on Arrow.
As Lotz Black Canary was killed off on Arrow, it’s unknown whether Lotz will reprise her role as the Canary or play an entirely new character. Or maybe she'll just reprise her role in flashbacks? But we'll have to wait for more info to answer that question.
Greg Berlanti, Andrew Kreisberg, Sarah Schechter, and Mark Guggenheim are set to produce the show.
