The CW Will Be ‘Staying In The Superhero Business’ Says Boss


It seems as though The CW is still going to be making superhero-based TV shows, at least, according to the network’s boss, Mark Pedowitz.

This news comes to us via Variety.

“[We’re] staying in the superhero business,” The CW’s CEO Pedowitz said on a press call ahead of the network’s annual upfront presentation for advertisers.

He continued: “We are staying working with Greg Berlanti, who has masterminded creatively The CW DC Universe.”

“So we’re not as robust as we were in the past, but still very much there,” Pedowitz added.

“We started with one — this was Arrow 10 years ago — we have now moved to create a whole bunch of superheroes. And we’re proud of it and we plan to stay in that business. No matter what the outcome is, with any event of sale or no sale. I think the Warner side realizes the value of having these properties up. DC Comics realizes the value of what it does to their marketability, in terms of what these franchises are.”
