Throughout a panel for Comedian Con Worldwide’s Storytelling Throughout Media sequence over the weekend, Arrow co-creator Marc Guggenheim stated that he would think about making a film that starred the “Arrowverse” variations of DC heroes if the chance got here alongside. The acknowledgement got here as he confirmed that he has formally stepped away from the Arrowverse. Whereas Guggenheim had not served as showrunner on Arrow or the opposite present he co-created, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, in a couple of years, his involvement because the showrunner of The CW’s annual DC superhero crossover occasions had stored him very concerned within the day-to-day operation fo the shared universe these reveals inhabit. Now, with Arrow completed and Supergirl about to wrap up, Guggenheim is able to transfer on, with final 12 months’s “Disaster on Infinite Earths” mega-event as his victory lap.
Guggenheim and Arrow co-creator Greg Berlanti are working with comics legend Geoff Johns on Inexperienced Lantern for HBO Max, and Guggenheim has written no less than two screenplays for movie in the course of the pandemic lockdown — one, a draft for a movie primarily based on Rob Liefeld’s comedian Prophet, and the opposite a spec script for a authorized drama he’s purchasing round. We requested him, with that because the backdrop, whether or not he may need to convey the TV variations of DC superheroes that he’s so carefully related to into the characteristic movie world.
“I feel so,” Guggenheim advised me in the course of the panel. “I do love these characters, and I do miss working on this world.”

Some followers would argue that Guggenheim’s mega-crossovers have been films unto themselves, particularly within the final 4 years as telling a single, interconnected narrative took over for the extra serialized nature of crossovers from the primary couple of years. Guggenheim, although, is aware of there’s fairly a little bit of distinction between the 2.
“The distinction actually I feel comes right down to the way in which I work with the showrunners,” Guggenheim defined in the course of the panel. “It is a very type of…I need to say it is a delicate dance however that suggests that individuals are troublesome to work with and that is in no way true, everybody’s fantastic. I really feel very strongly, having been somebody who’s run these reveals, that my job is to not are available and dictate something to any of the opposite showrunners. If somebody was doing that to me, I might discover it actually obnoxious and annoying. So once I did the crossovers, I felt like my objective was to assist present a rubric or a construction that the totally different showrunners might are available and type of hold their varied ornaments on, and assist in phrases fo shifting the dialogue ahead each by way of breaking story and by way of how can we produce this monstrosity? That is its personal little trick. That is a really totally different endeavor than writing a film the place, it is simply me in a room once I’m writing a film. Sure, I am going to do it along side manufacturing companions and studio execs, and everybody has concepts and notions, however even on films the place I’ve bought a director connected, on the finish of the day it’s simply me alone on the keyboard so it is a very totally different sort of expertise.”
