Even though DC Entertainment has been developing a number of new television shows recently, few of them will actually exist in the same universe. The CW is building its take on the DCU with Arrow and The Flash, while NBC is exploring the supernatural world with Constantine. Then there’s Fox’s recently debuted Gotham, CBS’ Supergirl and TNT’s Titans, among others. While some of these shows are definitely not crossing over with the Cinematic Universe, many of them are probably not going to cross over with themselves. However, it looks like one of these shows might just co-exist with Stephen Amell’s Arrow and Grant Gustin’s Flash.
Speaking with Adweek for an article about DC’s growing presence on television, The CW president Mark Pedowitz revealed that it’s possible TNT’s Titans series, which will consist of Nightwing, Raven, Starfire and more, “might” be included in the world of Arrow and The Flash. “What you’ll see embedded in Flash and Arrow is that we’ll have the ability to test characters out. Is there room to grow them into the next show? I cannot tell you yet. There are discussions going on.” However, he rules out any connections to Gotham and Constantine.
A Teen Titans series would definitely be a natural addition to the Arrowverse. The hit CW show has included many elements that can be brought into Titans, including Roy Harper, Deathstroke and HIVE. References to Nightwing’s hometown, Bludhaven, have also been made. Additionally, Warner Bros. co-owns The CW and completely owns TNT, so the possibility is still there. While this isn’t confirmation at all that Titans will be set in the universe of The Flash and Arrow, the odds are looking more favorable. Stay tuned for more news as we have it.
