It took Smallville six years to develop their version of the JLA. It consisted of Superman, Black Canary, Star Girl, Cyborg, Green Arrow, Aquaman, and Martian Manhunter.
That meant that four of the original founding members were changed from the DCU Comic Version. So, we know that the CW doesn’t necessarily stick to the comics in its shows. We all know that Arrow has already introduced the league of shadows and Ra’s al Ghoul, so it would be safe to assume that they will have a JLA in a quicker timeframe than Smallville did in order to fight this threat. Here are the members that I believe will comprise Arrow’s Iteration of the Justice League and why: I believe that Green Arrow will be the founder of the group just like he was in Smallville. They will come together to fight the League of Shadows in the beginning.
He will be joined by Black Canary and Huntress due to Canary being a former member of the League of shadows and Huntress being a mercenary, who isn’t afraid to kill if she has to.
The show is introducing the Flash in a few weeks, so it is highly likely he will be a part of the team as well. In the episodes that I have watched up to this point I have noticed that the name Coast City is mentioned in several Episodes and the airliner that was shot down when Yao Fei was murdered was a Farris airliners jet, which could be leading up to Hal Jordan(AKA Green Lantern) being introduced into the show.
They have also mentioned and shown an Apartment complex in Bludhaven, which for those not in the know, is where Dick Grayson (AKA Nightwing) resides. That would make six members of the team.
The final member in my opinion could very well be Wonder Woman. I say this because Diggle’s ex-army friend works for a company named A.R.G.U.S. which just so happens to be where Col. Steve Trevor works. We all know that Steve brings Wonder Woman to “Man’s World” after he crashes on Themyscira and she finds him.
What if her island is the one that the Jetliner crashed on when it was shot down and he was looking for survivors when he crashed? Wouldn’t that make sense in the context of the show? I think it would.
So, my prediction for Arrow’s version of the Justice League is: Green Arrow, Black Canary, Huntress, Flash (Barry Allen), Green Lantern (Hal Jordan), Nightwing, and Wonder Woman. What do you think? Are my theories plausible?
