What Could Have Been: The CW’s Unproduced Arrowverse Shows by Jerry Whitworth
When Arrow made its television debut in 2012, no one knew it would explode into what became the Arrowverse (or the CWverse) with the Flash, Constantine, Vixen, Supergirl, Legends of Tomorrow, Freedom Fighters: The Ray, Black Lightning, Batwoman, Stargirl, Superman & Lois, and Naomi (not to mention all the connections made through Crisis on Infinite Earths). However, with the establishment of HBO Max, it seems its time is quickly coming to an end as recent attempts to continue to grow the brand have mostly collapsed while the streaming service picked up Doom Patrol, Titans, Peacemaker, Green Lantern, Strange Adventures, Justice League Dark, Constantine, and an untitled Gotham PD project (as Netflix plays with Lucifer and Sandman). Before the CW gives up being the superhero channel to whatever form it will take next (undoubtedly featuring young, attractive people that make poor decisions), lets take a look at what shows almost joined the Arrowverse/CWverse but didn’t make it to television.

The two-part “Stars & S.T.R.I.P.E.” seeing Dragon King, Icicle, and Brainwave seemingly dead, Solomon Grundy missing, Sportsmaster and Tigress defeated, and the Gambler in the wind, we’re undoubtedly getting new foes, new heroes, and likely a new direction. With this in mind, lets take a look at what characters could be on the horizon when the show returns.
