'Arrow' Producer Shares What Would Happen If 'Green Arrow & The Canaries' Doesn't Get Picked Up

'Arrow' Producer Shares What Would Happen If 'Green Arrow & The Canaries' Doesn't Get Picked Up

Green Arrow & The Canaries producer Marc Guggenheim is speaking out about the spinoff.

The producer recently opened up about what would happen to the possible new show and those characters if it doesn’t get picked up.

“Certainly, the backdoor pilot ended with the cliffhanger of William’s abduction. And I do think we owe answers to a lot of those moments and questions,” he told TV Line.

“My instinct would be to try to answer those questions in the form of, like, a comic book tie-in — which is not to say that it couldn’t be done on the other shows,” Marc continued. “When you’re dealing with another time period, the year 2040 in this case, the only show that could handle that or really deal with those questions is Legends [of Tomorrow]. [But that] is a tricky bit of business, since the tonal mashup between Legends and Canaries is so very different. On the other hand, you’ve got Sara, who is sort of the connective glue there….”

“I look at these things as ‘quality problems,” he added. “I love the fact that we now have a universe of shows that allows us to ask ourselves these questions and explore different things and answer questions from different shows, but we also have comic books as an outlet, as well.”

The CW Releases Statement On Zero Tolerance For Racism & More On Social Media

The CW Releases Statement On Zero Tolerance For Racism & More On Social Media

The CW is taking a zero tolerance stance on racist, misogynistic, or hateful comments towards the LGBTQ+ community.

The network, which is home to many hit shows including Supergirl, Black Lightning, Riverdale and more, released a new statement across all of it’s social media pages, including the separate show accounts.

“Words matter. So does action. We can do more. We will do more,” the statement starts out. “The CW appreciates and welcomes enthusiastic and thoughtful commentary about our shows. We are committed to making our social pages a safe place for our fans and talent to engage with each other.”

“We will not tolerate and will block racist or misogynistic comments as well as any hate towards the LGBTQ+ community,” the network says.

This new statement comes a week after The Flash actor Hartley Sawyer was fired from the show after past racist and misogynistic tweets resurfaced.

The CW Looking To Re-Cast 'Batwoman' With Completely New Character!

The CW Looking To Re-Cast 'Batwoman' With Completely New Character!

The CW has started casting to replace Ruby Rose in Batwoman!

The network is looking to replace Kate Kane with a new character named Ryan Wilder, who will then serve as the new Batwoman, EW reports.

This news was revealed in a casting notice, in a now removed Reddit post. The new character is a female in her mid-late 20s and the complete opposite of Kate.

The description of the character reads “She’s likable, messy, a little goofy, and untamed. With no one in her life to keep her on track, Ryan spent years as a drug-runner, dodging the GCPD and masking her pain with bad habits. Today, reformed and sober, Ryan lives in van with her plant. A girl who would steal milk from an alley cat and could also kill you with her bare hands, Ryan is the most dangerous type of fighter: highly skilled and wildly disciplined. An out lesbian. Athletic. Raw. Passionate. Fallible. And very much not your stereotypical All-American hero.”

The notice is also encouraging any and all LGBTQ+ actors to go out for the role.

Ruby broke her silence on leaving Batwoman just last week, over a week after making her shocking announcement.
