The CW working on a new Arrowverse series…

August 5th, 2019 by Marc Comments

So, tonight from the Television Critics Association summer press tour we’ve already learned that Kevin Conroy was set to play an old Bruce Wayne in The CW’s Arrowverse crossover, Crisis in Infinite Earths, along with Black Lightning also finally crossing over.

And now, a third very cool big bit of news…

CW President Mark Pedowitz has revealed that they plan to extend The Arrowverse with another new show… which will debut in 2020/2021.

Now, personally, I figured that Arrow would continue with a new cast as Diggle’s son William and Oliver and Felicity’s daughter Mia seemed to be moving into the spotlight.

On this, he said: “Nothing’s ever 100 percent done. You learn that over time. There’s a possibility but we haven’t fully had a discussion of what that storyline would do”

Before adding: “Right now, we’re looking at another property for next season.”

Now, while Pedowitz gave no clues, I have an idea… could we be getting a Batman Beyond series?

Hear me out.

Batwoman has opened the Batman universe up to The CW’s Arrowverse and, if you recall, she debuted briefly during the last big crossover event, Elseworlds.

And who is cameoing this year? Conroy… as old Bruce Wayne, so, could it be? The CW has always seemed to have a problem with Batman coming into it but with Arrow’s last season taking place in the future, could it be a window to bring Terry Maginnis’ young Batman into the fold?

Beyond has been a fan favourite for the live-action treatment for a long time and this could be a great way to make it happen and seems to tick all the boxes.

Could be a costly series to produce though…

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….
