While we already know that one of Batman’s rogues (Deadshot) is appearing on the new CW tv show “Arrow” (along with Teen Titans villain Deathstroke) but in a recent interview with IGN TV, producer Marc Guggenheim let some very interesting pieces of information slip on what fans can expect for the future of the show, and possible cameos from other well known characters.
When asked if this incarnation of The Green Arrow/Oliver Queen could get some familiar allies in the future of the show:
“I would say, ‘Probably.’ One of the things we want to do is roll the show out at the right pace. For the most part, I think we’ve taken the philosophy that things are happening sooner rather than later. I always feel like every time we get the note from the network, ‘Is this happening too soon?,’ I feel like we’re on the right track. I know as a viewer myself, I’m impatient. I want to see stuff. We’re not going to make the audience wait to see characters, plot twists, revelations. I think running out of great characters and great moments is a quality problem to have, and I just want to have them.”
When asked specifically about Bruce Wayne/Batman:
Oh, my hope is that we can use him at some point. I think that plagued the Smallville showrunners more than it plagues us because, obviously, the Dark Knight Trilogy is over. They’re not available to us yet. My hope is that they’ll be available to us at some point. That would be awesome. No question, that would be absolutely awesome. But I don’t know. That’s above my pay grade.
Arrow debuts on The CW this fall on Wednesday Oct. 10th 2012.
