@transformers1024: I'm actually hoping Daryl gets Glenn's death, his story arc is basically over. I want to see Glenn survive until the final season.

I actually would really like it if they did this. For me, Daryl just doesn't feel like the same guy from season one and I wouldn't really mind if he was killed off. Glenn looks like he's finally starting to crack a bit from everything. I just feel like Glenn's story still has a lot of places it can go and Daryl's doesn't. But I doubt it would happen because Daryl is one of the most popular characters. I feel like him and michonne are untouchable on the show.

In what way could Merlyn betray them? Malcolms motives are pretty much clear. He wants to kill brick, and they need all the help they could get. My point is, they had a common goal, so Malcolm had no incentive to pull his regular bullsh*t. All the team had to do, is stop Merlyn before delivering the final blow. And lets say they fail to stop him from killing Brick, is that really that bad given the circumstances? The man's a nut who, as was made clear, does anything for his own power, why not USE Merlyn for help and betray him? Is our feelings, though just, against a guy so important that we should sacrifice the whole city for it? I get it, and in their position I'd despise the idea, but I'd do it because the people would benefit from it.


Oh, Oops, I was mainly talking about the second part, with Oliver training with Merlyn. This has horrible idea written all over it. I'm on the fence about using him to kill Brick. The whole transition from season 1 to 2 was about going from a killer to a umm "wounder" I guess. Using Merlyn to kill Brick seems like a step back. I can see why they voted, but also I think it'd have been interesting if they'd used him to do it, and then have Oliver return right after. (Especially since using Merlyn to kill Brick mirrors Merlyn's history of using Thea to kill Sara and Oliver to kill Ra's.

Actually storywise, that'd be a pretty cool way to go. Morally it's fitting into the theme of the show.

(Still does anybody believe Merlyn's going to be all faithful teacher to Oliver through all this?)

Given that they are turning him into an anti-hero, yes, I think he'll be faithful, until thea learns the truth and he loses hope again.

Also, Merlyn has already stated he needs Oliver to kill Ras because at this point Oliver's death means his own.

I never really understood the "Killing the bad guys, makes us like them" Line of thinking. In actuality it really doesn't. The bad guys do bad things because they are selfish and evil. If I kill a bad guy, am I truly becoming one?

Joker has the highest body count of any villain in the DC universe.... Is batman somehow a better person because he refuses to kill him? I personally don't think so. Because after your refusal to deal with the problem every thing that bad guy does in the future is blood on your hands anyway. People say Joker has the highest body count. I say Batman shares the achievement.

People would hate it if I was a superhero in the DC universe. Joker would have been dead AGES ago. Every villain that was undeniably evil and everyone knew it. I'd take every single one of them out. And At the end of my quest. I'd lie down. And feel like I just made the world a far better place

I think it's more "The ends justify the means" line of thinking that worries heroes. The whole thinking is no one should have the right to kill another person. It would start with the joker, then the rest of his rogue's gallery, then petty criminals, and eventually just people he doesn't like. No one should be able to make that choice themselves. That's why theirs a court justice system.

I'm actually really disappointed that Caitlin and Barry aren't going to happen. We know Ronnie is going to come back soon so maybe they don't want Caitlin to pair up with anyone but they definitely play it as romantic between the two. She even told him it was okay if he peeked haha

They can't use Cyborg for obvious reasons.

yes they can. Flash is (possibly) being doubled too. They own the rights and can do what they want

Where do you find out who has the rights to what? I figured Warner Bros. has the rights to Cyborg and wouldn't want anyone else to use him. Flash was probably in development before movie Flash was announced so I thought that's how they got around it.

CW (where Arrow and Flash are aired) is owned by Warner Brothers(the guys making the movies), who basically owns DC comics. WB and TNT (where Titans will air) are both owned by TIME WARNER.

to further clarify: FOX doesn NOT have the rights to Gotham. WB created and produced the show, and then Fox agreed to air it. But Fox has no claim to Batman or anything outside of the broadcasting of that individual show for however long that contract lasts.

The flash show was in motion before the movie, but that wasnt a rights issue. WB owns the live action rights to both regardless of which came first. But WB's problem has been that they dont have a cohesive tv/movie universe like Marvel, so they try to just keep them completely separate and avoid overlapping characters.

so you're mostly right. WB doesnt want anyone to use their movie characters. But its technically THEM who would be using him. its really all Noland's fault, because he started this crap with his contract that didnt allow them to use Batman while he was making his movies. since then WB has really been in love with creating stand alone elseworld-style shows.

I used to be a DC, but its crap like this, combined with the new 52, that drove me away.

I didn't know it was Nolan that started the whole no batman on tv thing. That really sucks. If it's not a rights issue then yeah it's just stupid that Cyborg, at least, isn't in it.

Beast boy can always be part of it later. They can't use Cyborg for obvious reasons. But for some reason I was really hoping for Jericho or Kid Devil to be part of the team. It'd be great if they had Deathstroke as the big villain but Deathstroke already killed it in Arrow and that might hurt this show.

I don't care about the race change but that guy does not make me think Jimmy Olsen.

Does this mean that Flash is in complete control of the venom symbiote now? and it won't freak out on him anymore?
