With Constantine heading to Arrow this season (here), rumblings are afoot among fans that maybe, just maybe, we’ll see a new DC Show from The CW… perhaps a new Constantine show? Well, don’t be getting ahead of yourselves folks.

Digital Spy report that The CW boss Mark Pedowitz has shot down any rumours or talk of a new series at the TCA summer press tour… well, sort of: “We have no intention of spinning anything else out.

“Last year at this time, we had no intention of doing [a third] DC project. But as characters were introduced on Arrow and The Flash, we began to realise this was a great opportunity to create the third leg of the stool.”

Hang on, that wasn’t a complete ‘no’, or is that just us?

Pedowitz also said that they passed on Supergirl because they didn’t want another DC show at the time, but in hindsight he regrets it: “We had Arrow and Flash [at the time] and we were not planning to do another DC character. In hindsight, we probably should’ve gone [in] that direction – sometimes you lose great shows.”

Constantine Showrunner Daniel Cerone has tweeted (below) that there are no plans that he’s aware of beyond having Constantine on Arrow… but while we aren’t saying we think Hellblazer will become a series at The CW, we definitely think that Pedowitz may be saying “no” but we think he doth protest too much.

Wonder what will be next?

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
