It has been announced that 2020 will see a new Arrowverse Show debut. Now, a lot is still unknown about the future of the Arrowverse in general, especially how the events of “Crisis on Infinite Earths” will play out. But I am here to make my best educated guesses and what this new show could be about (no particular order).
BLUE BEETLE - A long time ago, there were plans to introduce this character on “Arrow”. But, the executives at WB said they had film plans for that character, so instead we got Ray Palmer AKA The Atom. In recent years, the film side has seemed to get relaxed with what The CW can and can’t do. We have a TV Superman, a show focused on Flash despite there being a film version of the character, we even got Task Force X for a little bit in season 7 of “Arrow”. There is still a good chance this can happen.
BOOSTER GOLD - Now, there have been rumors that a Booster Gold film has been in development. But I can’t remember the last time we have heard anything about it. It could be getting retooled as a TV show. All of the Arrowverse shows have dealt with time travel in one way or another, so it wouldn’t be out of the ordinary.
BATMAN BEYOND - This does at first seem far fetched, but hear me out. Kevin Conroy has been officially cast to play an older Bruce Wayne for the big crossover event. Depending how he fits in and how the crossover ends, we could get a show set sometime in the future where he can mentor someone to take the Batman mantle. Now, The CW has had to follow the unofficial “No Batman on TV” policy, but things have seemingly changed. We are getting a Batwoman TV show, we have seen increased references to Bruce Wayne in the Arrowverse, we have had a “Gotham” show (different network, but still)…the show “Titans” has even casted someone to play Bruce Wayne. Granted, that’s on the DC streaming service with different rules. The point is that there are ways of getting around this policy. Plus, people have been talking about if it is possible to see Batman Beyond return to TV. Maybe we can get a live action version.
I have plenty of other guesses, but these seem to be the most likely. What are your thoughts?
