With various DC properties having made it to screens big and small in recent years, we’ve naturally found ourselves being acquainted with heroes and villains beyond the A-list. Truth be told, we owe most of the thanks to the television side of things, especially the ever-expanding Arrowverse over on The CW.
And while we’ve met the likes of the Elongated Man and Wild Dog in recent memory, one glaring omission in the eyes of hardcore comic book geeks has been that of the Question, the trench-coated conspiracy theorist who, believe it or not, served as the inspiration for Rorschach of Watchmen fame.
Come to think of it, I’ve actually been seeing some fans hoping that the Question somehow find his way to The CW before long, and I too think he’d be a natural fit for the grittier Arrow. Perhaps being of the same mind was Discussing Film, who brought it up when speaking with executive producer Marc Guggenheim at ACE Comic Con.
Here’s what he had to say when asked about the character:
“I always bring him up. I always feel like that character would be a great fit with the tone of Arrow. Again: it’s not our characters, it’s DC’s characters, and they’ve got other plans for The Question.”
Now, let it be known that it remains unclear as to whether said plans are for film or television, to which Guggenheim echoed:
“I don’t know what their plans are, but clearly they do have plans – otherwise we’d be using him.”
To be honest, our guess is as good as yours as to where he’ll pop up. To put it bluntly, he’s a bit too obscure to be granted a solo flick, but we could picture the Question appearing in, say, Justice League Dark. But, if it’s TV that WB has in mind, it stands to reason that he’ll surface on a show beyond The CW’s borders.
