    Oh yeah, totally forgot about that. The GL movie was in 2011 and GLC came up 2014 I think, a sequel of some form then GLC must have been off and on for those years. Yet, Stewart appeared in animation like YJ. Weird. Though, not like a GL appearing on Arrow would have been a good fit.

    That does make me wonder if Slade Wilson and any of his children might show up on Titans since they are so closely associated with the team (both as enemies and allies/members).

    Well, even if they abstain from the Wilson's they've still got Trigon, Blackfire, and a few other stray Titans villains they can use ;).

    They can probably do their own versions of Brother Blood and HIVE too since the Arrowverse has already finished with those concepts :).

    The TV people make some rather oddball choices more often than not. But thankfully, these are just ideas and more ideas get swatted down than approved at CW.

    Hitman is better than it sounds, but it's the kind of concept that, if adapted for television, tends to get watered down to where it isn't really worth doing (like the Sable television series based on Mike Grell's Jon Sable: Freelance).

    Yes; it's a cute idea, but I can see why The CW execs would be reluctant to go for it. An Arrowverse sitcom would probably be seen by them as diluting the brand.

    They're busy doing it themselves. :p But seriously, I can see them balking at it after Powerless got canned.

    This article says Malcolm Merlyn is dead. Did I miss something?

    UPDATE:

    Also, is anyone in the Legion of Doom besides Captain Cold actually funny? Damien Dahrk has admittedly had his moments, but I can't think of a single funny thing about Merlyn or Reverse Flash. I can see DC being reluctant to greenlight a comedy where 3/4ths of the cast aren't actually funny.

    Production on Preacher season 3 has officially begun. Recurring roles revealed: Betty Buckley cast as Gran'ma, Colin Cunningham as TC, Jeremy Childs as Jody, and Liz McGeever as Christina.

    I'm not sure if they finished revealing who survived Prometheus blowing up Lian Yu -- they're probably assuming unless it was revealed or someone in cast n crew said so at a convention.
