"The DC Showcase allows us to expand the DC Universe with short stories based on intriguing characters - from a 1940s comics sensation like The Spectre to a creation of the 1970s like Jonah Hex - just begging to be presented to a very worthy fan base," said Geoff Johns, Chief Creative Officer of DC Entertainment.
"Whereas DC Universe films have given fans the broad strokes of superhero entertainment, we know devout comics fans will enjoy seeing the characters in the DC Showcase come to animated life - some for the very first time - and we believe this presentation will open a window for new viewers to experience these unique, textured heroes and villains," said Amit Desai, WHV Vice President of Family, Animation & Sports Marketing.
"Green Arrow" will be included as the DC Showcase short on the upcoming "Superman/Batman: Apocalypse".
