We all know how big of a superhero, Superman is and every time something related to him comes out in the headlines, a lot of heads from all over the world moves towards it without caring about the size of the news or rumor. Such is the fan following this superhero holds, now in recent weeks, we all know that there are chances to get some live-action incarnations of Superman in the recent future and if the rumors are right then there are chances that we are going to see something more than Man of Steel soon.
According to a rumor initiated by FandomWire, there is news from Warner Bros. that they’re planning to shift their focus from the Extended Universe of DC’s Superman into his more famous and successful Arrowverse version.
The whole idea behind Elseworld is that it gave a sense of freedom to the writers and makers so that they can do anything with the concept and some of the examples of that freedom is, ‘What if our beloved Superman will land in Russia as a little baby (Superman: Red Son)?’ Or, ‘What if one day we will find that Batman is a pirate or a vampire?’ So, with Elseworld coming in some time in December, there are very high chances that we are going to see a solo series of Superman and this crossover playing the role of a backdoor pilot.
Tyler Hoechlin has been portraying the role of Man of Steel with great success since 2016. It was the second season of Supergirl in which he made his first appearance. In the initial stages of the series we saw him many times teaming up with Supergirl but with time his appearances changed into more of cameos.
We all know that the role he’s playing is small but despite that, we have to say that he has been portraying the role of Man of Steel with a great success. If we see the applause and good reviews he has received from the fans of Arrowverse. So, maybe the small investment from Warner Bros. is finally going to pay them a lot after we all know that to see Superman on the big-screen we have to cross a big-lengthy time period.
There have been reports that say we are not going to get any Superman films in recent years and fans have to wait a little longer than they expected , but they have a good chance in order to keep their arguably the greatest Superhero alive in the Arrowverse if not in DCEU at this point of time. We have seen many characters doing well in both universes as we have seen Suicide Squad and Deathstroke both in the same universe simultaneously in different times. So, it’s possible for Warner Bros. to go for the same approach with Superman.
But, Maybe This Approach Can Harm The Greater Arrowverse
We haven’t seen Superman since the end of Smallville, which we saw ended in the year 2011 and it starred the talented Tom Welling in the character of Clark Kent before he became the famous superhero. The show got very popular and continues to inspire many other shows also now the movie one going out of the plans of Warner Bros. maybe it’s the time when they can finally shift their focus from movie towards their Television Series. A return to the television seems to be a decision they’re heading towards because of the success they had in the past.
But, the big question is the affect Superman’s solo series is going to have on other series and maybe it’ll be a bad decision in terms of the rest of the Arrowverse, which is getting a lot of plaudits and applause from the fans and has developed a great fan base out there and to give way to a Superhero with so much history on a regular basis, I think isn’t a good idea because seeing characters on daily basis maybe can harm the hunger fan shave in them to see the superhero.
The fans of Elseworlds crossover are excited because of one major reason as we will see Arrow, Supergirl, and the Flash all together on a dangerous adventure with Superman also going to meet Flash for the very first time and Green Arrow also. The other reason is that maybe we will get to see Lois Lane and Batwoman in to the Arrowverse. But, with the release of Superman’s solo series it can come back as a backfire to the Warner Bros. because it will surely affect the series of other characters and will maybe the fan following of Supergirl will get the biggest impact of Superman’s arrival.
So, there are chances that maybe we will get a Superman series as we all know that Tyler Hoechlin have a great fan base out there and which can push Warner Bros. to call him for the revival of their greatest Superhero.
