It looks like DC is getting its first animated gay superhero thanks to DCTV powerhouses, Greg Berlanti and Marc Guggenheim. Much the way Vixen was given an animated series on the CW Seed to introduce her into the DC television universe before bringing her into live-action, so too will be the case for DC's The Ray.Read More
And which Green Lantern?
Is the world of Arrow going to get even bigger? That's the look of things judging by the above production art that Arrow Executive Producer Marc Guggenheim shared over the weekend.Read More
Oh, binge-watching! Look what you hath wrought!
Anthology series seem to be all the rage. From American Horror Story, to True Detective, to Fargo, television storytelling is being done in even larger chunks than usual, with entire seasons having nothing to do with other seasons of the same show, save some tenuous connections (like the same cast, unifying characters, etc). The upcoming Legends of Tomorrow series on The CW is following suit and employing this format that's become popular with the rise of bingRead More
The DC TV Universe sure is getting crowded...
The creators of Arrow and The Flash, Executive Producers Greg Berlanti, Andrew Kreisberg, and Marc Guggenheim discussed, among other things, their planned superhero team-up show for The CW, which they'll be producing with Sarah Schechter, and will feature Brandon Routh's Ray Palmer/The Atom and Victor Garber's Dr. Martin Stein (though he's half of Firestorm with Robbie Amell, Amell was not announced as part of the cast).Read More
And Arrow and The Flash have been renewed!
The Television Critics Association press tour has been chugging along talking to some of our favorite creators and actors, but perhaps the most exciting news to come out of it so far is that DC Comics superhero/model Vixen is getting her own animated digital series.Read More

Arrow executive producer and writer Marc Guggenheim's most recent work has been in the DC universe, but he got his start at Marvel -- and he's headed back there soon. As announced by IGN, Guggenheim will be taking over the narrative reins in X-Men #18, picking up where current writer Brian Wood leaves off. Guggenheim confirmed that the X-Men will remain an all-female team during his run, and that he's planning a "smooth, easy transition" between his Wood's story and his own. No artist has been announced yet.Read More
Almost Totally Excellent
Consider the Following
When DC and CW announced that they would pursue a The Flash television series that not only drew on the success of current CW offering Arrow, but took place in the same universe, certain questions arose. If Arrow does take place in the same universe as the new Flash series, how will the show runners deal with the relatively super-powerless world of Arrow? Why did the CW put Amazon, their planned Wonder Woman show, on hold for the new Flash series? Will Arrow and the new Flash show cross over at any point after The Flash gets his own show? Well, two of these questions now have answers, thanks to Arrow executive producer Marc Guggenheim.Read More

Things We Saw Today
Holy Rusted Metal Batman!
DC Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns announced on Twitter this past Friday that production has wrapped on Martin Campbell's (Casino Royale) superhero film Green Lantern. Shooting began in February 2010 in New Orleans, and lasted 100 days. In other news, the film's co-scribe Michael Goldenberg (Contact, Harry Potter) has been hired as screenwriter for Green Lantern 2. Earlier in June, Greg Berlanti, Michael Green, and Marc Guggenheim were reported to be working on a treatment for the inevitable sequel, as well as DC's next likely franchise, The Flash. Too bad, Ryan Reynolds would've been perfect. (/Film, Bleeding Cool)Read More
