Here’s How Time Warner Inc (TWX) Gets a Good “Justice League” Film Made by 2015

Marvel is taking a similar approach with the forthcoming show Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. How far showrunner Joss Whedon takes the concept remains to be seen, but it’s easy to imagine any number of heroes or villains guest-starring. Each appearance would expand the Marvel Cinematic Universe and, in a best-case scenario, create a natural film tie-in. Marvel parent

The Walt Disney Company (NYSE:DIS) will broadcast Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. on its ABC network Tuesdays this fall.

How far will Arrow‘s producers push into the DC Universe in Season 2? Anything is possible, including exploring the long-standing though sometimes contentious friendship between Green Arrow and Green Lantern.

A wider world — revealed!
“When you consider the importance that [Green Lantern] Hal Jordan plays in the Green Arrow comics, it’s certainly one of those names that we’ve discussed a great deal. I have Ryan Reynolds’ phone number around here somewhere,” executive producer Marc Guggenheim told TV Guide in a recent interview.

Consider, too, how director Zack Snyder and screenwriter David S. Goyer introduce Superman in Man of Steel. The story paints him as the world’s first superhero. A beacon who makes it safe for others with special abilities to reveal themselves. Introduce a little Man of Steel footage in Arrow — in a scene where Ollie is watching the news, for example — and you’ve opened the show to a wider world.

To be fair, Guggenheim and his fellow producers have promised that Arrow would be a bit more grounded than the typical superhero comic book. Most take that to mean we won’t see Ollie palling around with Green Lantern, Superman, or any of the other members of the Justice League.

Maybe that’s how it needs to be, but I won’t blame investors if they’re hoping for more from Arrow. After all, a lot is riding on Time Warner Inc (NYSE:TWX)’s ability to get the most out of its DC Comics characters.

Or in terms the Emerald Archer himself might appreciate: Your quiver is full, DC. Take the shot.
