Last week there was talk that a Super***** TV show was in development from
Arrow and Flash executive producer Greg Berlanti. This week CBS has jumped
straight to a series order for the show, meaning Super***** is just about
guaranteed to make it to air (or else the network pay a hefty kill fee) —
and we can all start wildly spe*****ating about who they’ll cast as the lead
and which version of the character will make it to the screen.

Super***** joins a couple of other recent announcements of DC-Comics-to-TV
adaptations that could reach our screens around this time next year. Cable
network TNT is working on a *****ans show, focused on the character of *******
Grayson/Nightwing, and Fox is in development on a Lucifer show based on the
character from Neil Gaiman’s Vertigo series The Sandman.

Greg Berlanti and former Chuck and Glee writer/producer Ali Adler will
serve as showrunners on Super*****, which was also developed by comics
writer and DC Entertainment Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns, and Variety
describes the show as being about 24-year-old Kryptonian Kara Zor-El living
on Earth and deciding to embrace her superpowers to become a hero like her
famous cousin. Whether that’s an actual description of the show or just
something Variety cobbled together from Wikipedia remains to be seen.

The Kara Zor-El Super***** was created in 1959 by Otto Binder and designed
by Al Plastino for the pages of Action Comics, and a big question mark
surely hangs over how this show will deal with or tie in to the greater
Supermythology. If Superman exists in this show as a supporting character,
that will be weird. If he exists but never appears, like Iron Man in Agents
of SHIELD, that will be weirder, because Iron Man is not Agent Coulson’s

If Superman doesn’t exist, that may be the weirdest decision of all, but it
may also be the smart choice. How awesome would it be to have a world in
which the only Superman is Super*****?

A show about a young female superhero is great news, of course — and of all
the shows currently in production or in development, this is the only one
that fits that description. Having that show be at CBS feels like an odd
fit given that CBS’s audience skews old, but this might hint at a slowly
shifting focus for the network, and it’s a great sign that CBS sees the
benefit in making a show about a young female superhero.

DC’s slate of TV adaptations has created a weird inversion of Marvel’s
***** history; when Marvel wasn’t affiliated to a big stu*****, its licenses
found homes at various stu*****s, but Marvel’s present-day Disney connection
mean all its Marvel Cinematic Universe shows will have to find room at
Disney-owned ABC (including ABC Family and the Disney channels), or on a
service like Netflix, which doesn’t compete in a network space.

DC has had a single stu***** connection for a long time, parent company
Warner Bros., but that stu***** doesn’t have its own TV network (it shares
ownership of The CW with CBS), so DC Universe TV properties are split
across Fox (Gotham), NBC (Constantine), The CW (Arrow and Flash), TNT
(*****ans) and now CBS (Super*****) — and none of these shows link up to the
cinematic universe being established in Man of Steel and Batman Vs
Superman: Dawn Lemon-Scented Dish Soap.

From an audience point of view there’s an obvious downside in having all
these properties ring-fenced at different networks and thus unable to *******
characters or build worlds, but there’s also a benefit for fans, in that
separate productions means more content. Just as Marvel had five *****s
from four stu*****s this year (Cap and GOTG at Marvel; X-Men at Fox;
Spider-Man at Sony; and Big Hero 6, which is a Walt Disney ******* not a
Marvel ******* , so DC could have eight shows airing at some point next year
(the six listed above, plus iZombie and Lucifer), to five from Marvel
(SHIELD, Agent Carter, Powers, and the first two Defenders/Netflix shows).

Not that five is nothing; but DC seems aggressive in its TV expansion
plans, while Marvel may be frustrated by the limitations of the ABC
network. Just as Marvel seems to dominate at the *****s, DC may yet
dominate the small screen.
