Everything is speculative until we begin seeing actual bits of the film.

@ObiWanShinobi You KNOW IT!!!

@Author987 I guess I just don't see it as weird. It happens all the time when there is a form of something on television and then changed for film. But, I understand nonetheless what you're saying. Its just that some things in their form on television don't necessarily translate to film as well as film can cross over to television.

@Author987 And that's so far...

@Author987 Two Spider-Man and X-Men teams would be a bit confusing with regard to film but I wouldn't expect the same-fan or not-in television unless there was a given impression that somehow one effects the other. Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. announced right off the bat, bringing back a concept that hadn't been done in a while, that it would connected to the MCU. Soon after, every development they had echoed the same information from film to television. DC began their crusade with a clean slate. Television shows already in development that were deemed separate from the start and as they announced several programs, they spanned several networks and almost seemed to randomly exist with the exception of Arrow/Flash and what they have in their roster. There has been talk of network crossovers for DC properties at some point but it has never been in the plan to conjoin television to film. Similarly to what I was saying to @junior-roberts Chrysler and Ford don't compete with the same car designs. Sure, they see what their competition is doing...view specs of engines...compare form and functionality. But they couldn't be any more different than night and day. DC and Marvel, same thing. Can't place expectation on the form of one universe and its functions based on the success of another brand altogether.

Besides, DC is doing just fine. They lead Marvel in everything from video games, television and animation. They equal out in comic book sales and are only behind in the movie department.

@junior-roberts The only relevant universe that DC is trying establish at this point is within the cinematic realm. The mulitverse explanation was only meant to essentially reiterate that they have no desire to muddy the properties by being pressured to conjoin everything and force fit them across mediums. Marvel isn't exactly doing a masterfully seamless job with it themselves. It's a pointless gripe. To expect one company to follow the direction of another is ridiculous. Simply because one company has a format doesn't mean that it's a repeat formula for another. Television can remain separate and still thrive in other mediums taking different measures. That's almost like asking these comic book companies to illustrate their comic books exclusively to the weekly airings of their television shows and yearly adaptations of their movies. DC has already established that they had no desire to disrupt the continuum of their shows just to find ways to make them fit into the cinematic realm. It isn't like this is surprise information. This isn't like it's new to the public. Yet whenever news breaks of the next progression of something, people act as if they are taken aback by it when they are already equipped with certain knowledge to begin with. I rather like the idea that they would much rather direct their attentions where it matters most rather than try to clone themselves and compromise the integrity of what they've already started. The Flash television show had been in works long before DC ever established that there was going to be a Justice League or expansive film universe. Man of Steel was the building block for which they were going to establish this universe however one has received it. Dawn of Justice is their execution moving forward with confidence that now they have a roster to compete at the box office. Bottom line as it always has been, Marvel is Marvel and DC is DC. Two distinct brands. Two distinct formulas. Pepsi vs Coke. Xbox vs Playstation. Warner vs Disney...

@ObiWanShinobi I know. I know. Just friendly conversation in agreement to disagree.

@Author987 DC is still in the process of building their universe. Too soon to make that assessment. The two are building their worlds differently...connecting them differently. I like what I have seen thus far or at least the promise of what's to come.

@Author987 Good for him! When last we spoke I'd offered to help him polish his work up a bit. Glad to hear that he is making some progress in other avenues. I'm currently working on refining a draft of my screenplay adapted from my most recent novel into a pilot episode. After a bit of consideration and back and forth with my agent, it was decided that the material would best be supported on television vs. film in terms of development. The targets now are, NBC, Fox, FX, AMC, CW, HBO and Netflix--networks that have shown greater support in the sort of material and interest for new entertainment.
@Author987 Was it Richard Todd? I haven't had the opportunity to read his books yet though I have read snippets of it. I'd shared with him my website and snippets to my books. He'd interviewed me for his site. But we haven't talked in quite a while. For me, I generally don't discuss what I do on this site unless I see network opportunities when I read some comments where others speak of their professions. It's extremely rare that I become personal with someone beyond movies, that's why when I saw the mention of his name it stood out to me.
@Author987 I believe I know who you are talking about. We'd shared and exchanged some information along the way.
@ObiWanShinobi Or could it be a character in, Inhumans, that he's portraying?
