Hello fellow moviegoers (and TV-goers in this case)!
So, there is no doubt that the CW is knocking it out of the park right now with their two DC shows 'Arrow' and 'The Flash', and WB is a little wobbly with their movies right now. But would it be a good thing if they both existed within the same universe? Would it be better if they made 'Arrow' and 'The Flash' similar to the way they make 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.'? Here's what I think...
(SPOILERS AHEAD FOR ARROW S3 AND FLASH S1)
Could you imagine seeing Stephen Amell's version of Green Arrow fighting alongside Ben Affleck's Batman? Or even Grant Gustin's Flash racing Henry Cavill's Superman? While I would absolutely LOVE to see that. I don't think it is the correct way to make all of these characters thrive.
The Arrow and The Flash both exist within their own universe separate from the up-and-coming DC Cinematic Universe, and that is the way it should be. One thing that I would absolutely hate to see, is either one of these shows be restricted by what's going on on the big screen, and vice-versa.
Imagine if Oliver Queen had actually killed Ra's al Ghul. What kind of repercussions would that have in the DCCU? That would be one of Batman's greatest foe's completely negated from ever making onto the big screen again for quite some time. Also, think about the story-line they are covering right now in 'The Flash' S1, all the stuff they are doing with the Reverse-Flash would already be told so we wouldn't get to see some of the best things about that character on the big screen.
So, while I love both of these universes, I would hate to see them cross-over and restrict themselves from doing all of the different stories that they would like to do. Think about it, how cool is it that we live in a day-and-age that we can debate whether the amazing superhero TV shows or the amazing superhero movies are better! If they were the same thing, we wouldn't be able to have that conversation.
So do you think that the TV and Movie DC universes should be one and the same? Do you disagree or agree with my thoughts? Let me know by commenting on this post!
