The Flash and Arrow

If you, like most TV junkies, can’t get enough superhero shows, then you’re in luck. The CW has recently unveiled one of their most ambitious projects yet: a spin-off show of both Arrow and The Flash by creators Greg Berlanti, Andrew Kreisberg and Marc Guggenheim.

The yet-unnamed show would combine characters from both Star and Central City that viewers of the show have come to know over the last few seasons of Arrow and this premier season of The Flash. So far The Flash’s Victor Garber and Wentworth Miller (Captain Cold/Leonard Snart) have been confirmed along with Arrow’s Brandon Routh (the Atom/Ray Palmer) and Caity Lotz.

Interestingly enough (Arrow spoiler alert) Lotz, who played Sara Lance/Black Canary, was killed off and replaced with Katie Cassidy who took over as the new Canary. Perhaps the CW will use Lotz’s character to introduce the Lazarus Pit to the series, an opportunity they missed during the death, and half-assed resurrection of Oliver Queen this past season.

The show, according to Deadline, is aimed to come out next mid-season and will feature three new DC Comic characters who’ve yet to make an appearance in the Arrow-Flash universe. The show may also serve as a meeting point between Barry Allen and Oliver Queen in future Arrow-Flash crossover shows… if we get more of them, that is.
