During the TCA summer press tour in August, it was announced that The CW would expand the Arrowverse yet again with Freedom Fighters: The Ray. The animated series would debut on CW Seed in 2017 and join Vixen in the animated corner of DC TV.
Since the announcement was made in August, we haven't really heard much more about the upcoming show - until today! Marc Guggenheim recently sat down with our friends over at Collider to offer an update on the highly anticipated series.
"We just finished the outline for The Ray. I’ve got my writing staff assembled, we’re all working on it. I’m actually really excited about it, not just because the project’s cool, but because basically we’re going about writing it a different way than we did Vixen. It’s a bit more ambitious. It ties into an announcement that’s going to be made about Vixen pretty soon. So expect a Vixen announcement that I think is very, very cool, and we’re moving forward on The Ray."
"It's a lot of fun," Guggenheim adds. "One of the things we've done is we've written in, as we did with Vixen, parts for the various actors who play characters in the Arrowverse. We have a couple of ideas that, if they come to fruition, you'll see some of the Arrowverse characters in ways you never saw them before."
That sounds rather interesting.
Expect more news soon.
Raymond “Ray” Terrill was a reporter who discovered a group of government scientists working on a secret project to turn light into a weapon of mass destruction. But before he could report on his findings, the project head exposed Ray to a “genetic light bomb.” The bomb failed to kill him and instead gifted Ray with light-based powers. With these abilities, Ray realized he could go beyond reporting on injustice — he could take action to help stop it. Calling himself The Ray, he was recruited by Uncle Sam and the Freedom Fighters to fight violence and oppression wherever it exists.
