It was recently confirmed that The CW’s DC Universe consisting of Arrow and The Flash will be separate from Warner Bros.’ movie universe, while it was previously affirmed that Fox’s Gotham is also unrelated. Now, it looks like we can add NBC’s Constantine to that list. In an interview with Green Arrow TV, Arrow executive producer Marc Guggenheim was asked about the Ivy University Easter egg that can be found in the Constantine pilot.
In the comics, Ivy University is connected to Ray Palmer, who will be played by Brandon Routh on Arrow. Guggenheim states that we may see Ivy pop up at some point in the CW-verse, but it won’t be the same one referenced in Constantine. “When we do our Easter eggs, they’re never in conjunction with other DC Easter eggs.” He adds that Arrow is “just in the Flash universe.”
This news isn’t terribly surprising, considering the fact that Constantine looks to be an entirely different beast from either of The CW’s shows. Also, it is difficult and uncommon for different television networks to work together and crossover two or more of their series’.

The Flash premieres on The CW October 7th, while Arrow returns on October 8th. Constantine premieres on NBC October 24th.
