Arrow - Season 1 - Interview with the producers

Question: Were there a lot of internal discussions about whether Arrow should be a movie or a TV series, and how did you come to decide on this version of it?

MARC GUGGENHEIM: It actually started with Greg Berlanti. He had made this big deal with Warner Bros. Studios. Greg and I had done Green Lantern together, and he was thinking about which DC Comics characters would translate to television. He thought Green Arrow would be a really good one because the character is really grounded. If you look at the history of comic book characters on television, the series that have had the most success are the ones that hue a little bit closer to the street level superheroes than the more cosmic level superheroes. So, he approached me and asked if I would do it with him. We talked to the studio and to The CW, we brought Andrew [Kreisberg] in, and Geoff [Johns] has been involved, at every stage. It’s just been a hive mind at work. But, there was never really a discussion of, “Hey, we should do this as a movie.” It was always like, “Okay, what DC comic book characters do we want to do as a TV show.”

About The SpoilerTV Daily Newsreel

Every day 100's of items are submitted to us and we don't always have the time to make separate posts for the news and/or there is so much that it would quickly push all other items off the homepage.

So a result we've come up with the idea of the Newsreel, which will feature smaller shows and news items as they happen.

There will be a new Newsreel each day, and as news is added we will update the post and and push it back to the top of the site so that you can see that new items have been added. A tweet of the item will also be sent to our @SpoilerTV account.

New Items will be listed at the top of the article.

This will allow us to provide more news on more shows in a much more timely fashion
About Movie News Roundup

Rather that creating lots of new posts as new info is released and fragmenting the commentary, we thought it would be a good idea for the upcoming major movies to create a single post for each major movies that will collate all the info as it's posted.

New items will be added to the top of the list as well as the post being re-posted back to the top of the homepage when a new item is added. We will additionally send out a fresh tweet alerting you of the new information.

This will allow you to bookmark this page so that you can return to it whenever you like. It will also help consolidate all the discussion on this movie in a central place and make it less likely that you'll miss some key information.
