Meeting your favorite superheroes, like the ones from Arrowverse, on your phone screens would seem like a very foreign idea back in 2012, but that’s not the case anymore. With the advent of technology/high-speed internet and the inevitable rise of streaming service subscriptions, you can watch the stories of your favorite superheroes unfold right on your phones/laptops from the comfort of your bed or during your commute to work.

Arrowverse, which is DC’s attempts to create TV series’ with a shared universe for their superhero characters, has been quite successful. The shows in the franchise have worked well with their audiences ever since the release of Arrow in 2012, with approval ratings being consistent, too.

According to reports, The CW is now starting a new era after a whopping 75% of the network’s stakes were sold to the Nexstar Media Group based in Texas. The parent companies of the network, Warner Bros. Discovery and Paramount, have not completely lost all of their stakes, as they both retain 12.5% each from the deal.

This could mean big things for Arrowverse, as reports suggest that Nexstar plans on catering towards a much older target demographic after acquiring the platform, which is very much in line with the news we just reported above!
