Are the producers of The CW's Arrow changing their tune? Last week, the network announced they were developing a script for a Wonder Woman pilot called Amazon. Now there are rumors of a possible crossover.
Arrow executive producer Greg Berlanti definitely believes both shows can co-exist. "Absolutely! If there's room for a thousand reality shows, hopefully there's room for a thousand shows like this," he said. "My hope is we're successful enough that we're all on the air together; that'd be great."
But the real question is, would they be open to an Amazon/Arrow crossover? With their show, they eliminate the element of superpowers, which is a major part of the Wonder Woman character.
"With Wonder Woman, Diana of Themyscira, there are superpowers. I don't foresee crossovers, but one of the great things about superheroes is that they're constantly being reimagined," added executive producer Andrew Kreisberg. "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 complement to Arrow."
In other words, if they bring Wonder Woman on, the "no flight" rule would be in play. She wouldn't be the traditional version of the comic book heroine. Despite the red tape, actor Stephen Amell (Oliver Queen/Arrow) is open to sharing the screen with Diana. He exclaimed, "As long as she doesn't have superpowers, then we're good!"
The only thing we know about the Amazon script is that it'll center on a young Diana Prince. It's not clear how much of her superhuman abilities will be included.
