And again, Batman not appearing.
Batman Will Not Appear On 'Arrow'
Honestly, an i know it's going to get a wee bit ragy for me to say this, but im glad he's not making an appearance. I mean so far in Arrow, and in Smallville previously, we've had the main hero pretty much lecturing other guest-appearance heros over how their methods are dangerous and wrong and how they should act like better people. In smallville it smade some sense (to begine with anyways, you know before it just became Clarks default setting for anyone who went around metropolis in a cape and then it just became insulting, esspecially when those other heros were establishing teams or re-forming temas to save the world) as we were delling with, well Superman (oh im sorry, the blurr............. seriously 10 season?) who's the symbold of what a super-hero is ment to be. If batman were to turn up in Arrow they'd probably make ollie give the same speech to bruce which would make no sense what so ever as Batman's mission of ridding crime is more honest and just than ollies in the show of "getting vengence to everyone on my fathers list, oh and having to get my arm twisted into helping other people". Bats would outshine Ollie and would just raise the question of "wheres batmans series?".
And i was under the impression that Batman didn't turn up in smallville (while it was still on tv. season 11 not counting here) becasue the Chris.Nolan films held the live action rights to the batman character, hence why the CW put green arrow in the show rathern than bruce.
As for WW, it is possible to make a show with her but it would require a damn big budget IMHO and some damn fine actors (and a better wardrobe than the pilot for the failed series... i mean why not just super-empose wondies colourse on greek hoplite armour, then it's both historical, traditional and true to the character....... if you can't tell a tv adaption of wondie has been in my mind for a time with the "hows" for it)
I don't get why people think that if batsman shows up for 1 episode CW will have to change the show to "Gotham" one episode of batsman isn't going to do anything but make the show arrow more popular
Well yeah thats the problem people have, Green Arrow should be popular on his own, not by stealing Batman's characters or riding on Batman's popularity
If you just put Batman in something so it can be more popular, that's just being lazy
I'm not at all surprised by this. A better question would have been, "Can we expect to see members of the Batman Family on Arrow?" Not only does that include Bruce, but also Dick, Barbara, Jason, Tim, Steph, Cass and Damian. I am holding out hope to see one of those characters make an appearance.
I would like to see Jason as Roy's bff
I would like to see a Green Lantern or Aquaman CW TV Series and keep a Batman Series off-limits to protect the superhero rights and the respect for other directors playing a huge role for the character. I think Wonder Woman would be too tarzan-like, but who doesn't like a hot princess warrior of Themyscira?!
I'm not really surprised. If Batman didn't make any appearances in Smallville (one of the few that didn't show in that series) is less likely that he would show a a guest character in the show of his less-awesome copycat.
Seems like you have read a lot of Green Arrow. This message may be subject of sarcasm.
I'm sorry imo thats crap, if your going to use a lot of his supporting cast, then at least have a cameo appearence. And as far as him not showing up on Smallville, there was a bat embargo going on due to the movies. So that was justified, this is not. I say we get to see Batman at least once, or take away EVERY bat character in the show. And see how well it does...
Why? It doesn't seems to be necessary. Why don't let lesser known characters get some attention maybe that will effect how much the can be used in comics. Seems like you are angry at Green Arrow for getting some attention that Batman isn't getting.
@Wonderbrezzy: Its alright there were a few episodes that were great but most of them were mostly ok. Deathstroke is cool, and so was this other Green Arrow person. The Huntress could have been better but overall its a good show. I have a feeling the second season will be much better.
@tupiaz: Not angry, well a little. But its not like I wanted Batman to show up right away, in fact I would want him to show up WAY later like past the first 4 seasons if it even goes there. And even at that point make it a cameo appearence. But by saying its not going to happen, I think its unfair (to me) when I would really enjoy a slight nod to MY favorite character. Totally being selfish but its always fun for me to see him or just get an allusion of him ever so slightly. I mean even in Teen Titans, they never showed him nor mentioned him by name. But they totally referenced him twice, and it was just nice to see. And I would want Batman to appear on Arrow way more than Amazons simply cause it makes more sense.
Does it make more sense that Batman would appear in Arrow? Yeah. But is it necessary? No. Batman got 3 mayor movies, he doesn't need more appearances let him cool of a bit and not get over used. Let other characters get some exposer as well. Just nice that DC for once don't need to rub Batman in your face (no I'm not a batman hater, I like hime. But he is used to much).
I feel like (since Justin Hartley in Smallville) that Green Arrow, at least in TV Universe, is a replacement for Batman. Rich but human, uses fancy gadgets (though Batman's are more practical) using a secret identity and playing bad-cop (Batman's the bad cop and the way i see it how these characters differ is from their attitudes, in how Batman aims to solve crimes and fight the criminals while GA has openly disagreed with laws and is more of a rebel. I'm sure the 2 would disagree in most arguments about how to handle crime) But they look interchangeably similar. Plus, his island transformation and use of the "applied sciences" division in the show are a lot like what happens in Batman Begins. And from the Christmas episode, Diggle even had to play butler to Oliver and pick him up after his fight with the black archer. I think it would be awkward if Batman shows up, cos they have too much in common. So Arrow is essentially a Batman story, except we're not calling it Batman because Batman, the once hipster hero compared to the likes of Superman, is now a little too mainstream
That's some crap; that's why marvel is blowing dc out the water. It doesn't make sense to have one hero in one area of the world if they can add huntress and deathstroke why not Batman. He can at least appear as bruce wayne who would that hurt. If I'm not mistaken the justice league movie is coming within a few years would be easier to introduce as many characters as possible
