The CW is about to be overtaken by superheroes, and that's ok with the people behind "Arrow."
DC Comics’ “Arrow,” starring Stephen Amell, launches next month, and a Wonder Women origin story may join it soon on the network.
Tentatively titled “Amazon,” the story would explore Wonder Woman’s alter ego Diana of Themyscira. The project is in early stages of development under Allan Heinberg, who also co-penned with DC’s Geoff Johns a five-issue arc of “Justice League of America.”
“Arrow” premieres Wednesday, Oct. 10 at 8 p.m. on CW.
When asked if there would be enough room on the CW’s schedule for both, “Arrow” executive producer Greg Berlanti told The Hollywood Reporter, "Absolutely! If there's room for a thousand reality shows, hopefully there's room for a thousand shows like this. My hope is we’re successful enough that we're all on the air together, that'd be great."
When asked about any crossovers between the two shows, EP Andrew Kreisberg told The Hollywood Reporter, “I don't foresee crossovers but one of the great things about superheroes is that they're constantly being reimagined. There's the Adam West and Christopher Nolan versions of Batman and one doesn't obviate the other. The Lynda Carter version was great and now the CW is hopefully developing another wonderful version that will be a nice compliment to Arrow."
