Sandman is Neil Gaiman's most cherished work, I would assume. I feel like it is definitely something he wants a lot of control over. 100% control? I'm not sure. It's still a DC property, but we'll have to wait and see.Expected, but unfortunate nonetheless.
I have the same head-canon.Random opinion (admist some dead air): I'd like to think Gotham is set on Supergirl's Earth (Earth-38). Gotham being the "darkness" of Supergirl's "light" world.
One timeless and (somewhat) 'grounded', one contemporary and 'fantastical'. Two parallels representing opposite symbols - fear and hope.
Obviously it can't be set on Earth-1 because of the different Nyssas and Cyrus Golds, Nora Fries being dead in Gotham, etc. Although, I think the idea of Gotham taking place in Earth-38's past would condense things slightly, since Supergirl's Earth already has its own Batman who we still know nothing about. Gotham (the show) could fill that hole, while Batwoman fills the hole of Earth-1's Batman story.
Cannon revealed the series is essentially prequel to the Fox series Gotham. “I would say so, yes,” Cannon said, contradicting the publicity materials that for months now have described Pennyworth as untethered to any existing Batman mythology.
If we get to the point where half of DC live-action makes it into the crossover, I can't add it all to the DC/CW timeline. It's too much and too tangential, especially if something like BL or the 90s The Flash show are fairly standalone...I've never heard of this site, but apparently they have an "exclusive" about Black Lightning.
Edit: Oh... my... god...
I don't think it'll be that bad.If we get to the point where half of DC live-action makes it into the crossover, I can't add it all to the DC/CW timeline. We'll have to vote on it, but I think it should mainly stay Earth-1 and Earth-38; unless there's any event of them traveling to Earth-2 or another Earth in the current shows.
No. That is too much. Too tangential from the ongoing storylines of the Arrowverse outside of Crisis.I don't think it'll be that bad.
60s Batman/70s Wonder Woman
Lois & Clark
Smallville (DIrishB already did that one)
I can't imagine Titans, Gotham or the DCEU getting involved. Just old series, really. We'll see.
