Arrow is great show and Flash, Gotham and Constantine are coming on the way....DC is doing a pretty good job.
So I got to thinking what other character would fit the DC universe created on the small screen, mainly the Arrow/Flash universe. And I think Red Hood (Jason Todd) fits perfectly, because, while imagining how a Red Hood TV show would be. It seems it could have similar vibe to the whole vigilantism thing going on on Arrow. Ya know, the whole " I can't be the killer I once was", and Oliver trying to show his fellow vigilantes (mainly Huntress) that killing isn't the right way to do it.
I think Red Hood can make a good adversary to the Arrow but not be a total enemy. He has been already voiced by Jensen Ackles who's already a part of the CW family, so he can be a good choice to play the character. The origin story might need a little changing, I think batman would be to tricky to pull off on TV....
(after taking a break of writing)....Guys, this Topic started as a Red Hood TV show idea. But now, my mind constructed a better one.
So continuing from the origins story, here's what I thought of:
Bruce Wayne, Rich guy in his late 40's, after he watched his parents die in front of his eyes as a child and to make sure no one has to suffer like him, he takes Gotham city under his wing by taking the GCPD to a whole new level of technological advancement and combat training with the help of his families wealth and A.R.G.U.S. leader and Wayne Enterprise client Amanda Waller...And oh yeah, Wayne has two adopted sons, Jason Todd and Richard Grayson (can be played by Jared Padalecki, wink wink!). To make sure they are ready to face the darkness of Gotham City, Bruce Wayne includes them in the GCPD training program but with a bit more supervision as their a personal trainer, because he's not bad at kicking ass.
Long story short, Jason is killed by a man in a red hood (another wink wink!). emotionally unstable because of the death of his brother, D.ick Grayson moves to Blüdhaven with an idea in mind after hearing about the Starling city vigilante known as the Hood. Can you guess what kind of idea?
Anyway, Jason body is magically found by Ra's Al Ghul (Hey, I'm not a TV show writer, don't judge me), that has been referenced in Arrow, who chooses to bring him back to life with the Lazarus Pit (no grounded enough for the Arrow universe? I know, but Malcolm Merlyn, a former member of the League came back to life somehow, so...)
Jason comes back to Gotham city under the identity of The Red Hood on a crusade to cleanse it from the scum following the teachings of his Master, the Head Of the Demon. But Jason is surprised by the fact that he is actually one of many vigilantes roaming the neighboring cities.....And I guess you can imagine the rest. The characters clash, lots of emotions ,drama and great action.
And why not, If Stephen Amell isn't joining the Heroes on the Big screen, he can start his own Justice League with Canaries, Robins and a man that can run really fast!....*sigh* poor Oliver. (Seriously, the Arrow can be the leader of the team on the field while Wayne and his Butler run the operations secretly in the Batcave under the Wayne Mansion...Wait, why would Wayne have Batcave under his House?)
So, what do you think? share your opinion, criticize and improve!
First I would just like to say the new forum design looks great. The problem I'm having is with red font. Some people have whats known as red color colorblindness. What that means is that anything red shows up as gray. Being that the forum background is now dark it makes it almost impossible to see names and numbers that are in red. The old forum design wasn't a problem because the background was white. Is it possible to at least have peoples names show up in white?
What are the chances that we will get movie suits in the game?
