Andrew Kreisberg Talks About DC Television Series


Executive Producer of Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow Andrew Kreisberg, spoke with The Hollywood Reporter, and spoke on the upcoming series, he talks about fan reaction, especially females for Supergirl, Superman’s role on Supergirl, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow starting on The Flash and Arrow, as well as his excitement on Constantine appearing on Arrow.

His discussion on the importance of Supergirl 

“The most gratifying thing for me is we talk to family friends’ daughters who are so beyond excited for this show, in a way you normally see boys excited for Star Wars and Batman,” Kreisberg said. “I’ve seen young girls so excited for this. They’ve never really had anything like this going back from when they did Wonder Woman … That’s really gratifying. For all of the talk about girl power and our goals, children are going to get that glimpse of something they haven’t had before.”

On Superman’s role in the series and Dean Cain Scene

“I think the couple of times it was said, it was cut,” Kreisberg shared. “it’s not like Simpsons where Bart can have one ‘damn’ per episode.”

“There was originally a flashback sequence [with] Dean Cain and [former movie Supergirl] Helen Slater, and a much longer scene where he’s talking about Superman,” Kreisberg said. “It’s one of my favorite moments of shooting the pilot was seeing Dean Cain talk about Superman. It just kept making me gush. But with the third episode coming out, it’s very much about Superman’s place in the world, and Kara’s place in the world, and why isn’t Superman going to be on our show every week. That episode has a lot of discussion about him.”

On the news they can do a crossover with Arrow, The Flash and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow through promotional ways

“That was sort of news to me,” Kreisberg admitted. “We’re obviously very excited and gratified by that. How they’re going to do that, we’ll see, too. They are on different networks, they are separated, but the stories Greg and I like to tell, there’s obviously a symmetry. Hopefully if you’re a fan of Flash and Arrow, you’ll be a fan ofSupergirl, and if you like Supergirl, you’ll check out Flash and Arrow.”

Andrew Kreisberg later talked about his excitement about the news that Constantine, played by Matt Ryan would be appearing on Arrow soon.

On the script for which Constantine appears 

“I just read the script for five and it’s unbelievable,” he previewed. “You’re going to be blown away.”

Andrew Kreisberg also discussed how Arrow and The Flash tie in with the upcoming one shot series DC’s Legends of Tomorrow and more.

On how DC’s Legends of Tomorrow will start on Arrow and The Flash


“Both Arrow and Flash are helping to set those things up, in both big ways and small ways, which is lovely,” Kreisberg said. “The mystery of what happened with Palmer (Brandon Routh) is playing out on Arrow. Sara Lance (Caity Lotz) will also be playing out in the first seven episodes. The Flash, we obviously have Firestorm and Martin Stein (Victor Garber) and Ronnie Raymond (Robbie Amell). And Kendra Saunders (Ciara Renee) lives in Central City in the Flash finale. Getting to know her. There’s going to be a lot happening leading up to the crossover, which is serving as a [quasi] pilot for Legends.”

On The Flash’s next “Flashback hour” 

“We’re working on episode four, which is exciting, [and] there is a flashback to the night of the particle accelerator explosion, from somebody else’s perspective which we haven’t seen before. It’s a good one,” Kreisberg said.
