Increasing the chances that The Academy Awards will take some time for a quick Salmon Ladder break in the middle of the show, producer Neil Meron has revealed that Arrow showrunner Greg Berlanti will be the head writer for the upcoming 2015 Oscars. He’ll be joined by Arrow writer (and The Flash creator) Andrew Kreisberg, who will ensure that The Academy Awards get a lot more scenes where the nominees refuse to tell the girl that they love about how they’re The Flash, even though it would solve all of their problems. Rounding out the writing team is Green Lantern screenwriter Michael Green and Pride And Prejudice And Zombies mastermind Seth Grahame-Smith. Together, they’ll mash the show up with some classic novels and throw in a failed attempt to jumpstart DC’s non-Batman superhero movies. The Oscars telecast will be hosted by beloved comic book hero Awards Show Host Man—better known by his secret identity, Neil Patrick Harris. The show will be held on February 22, 2015, a date that has nothing to do with superheroes (as far as we know).
