New characters will expand the DC cinematic universe.

Time Warner (TWX) stock should see a nice bump when season 2 of Arrow takes viewers further into the DC Comics universe, Fool contributor Tim Beyers says in the following video.

Specifically, DC will introduce Glee star Grant Gustin as police forensic investigator Barry Allen, who transforms into the fast-running superhero known as The Flash over three episodes. Warner's press materials describe the character as a comic-book fanboy who becomes fascinated with by Stephen Amell's vigilante and is ultimately drawn into his world.

If all goes well and audiences take to Gustin's portrayal, DC should greenlight a spinoff for 2014 or later. A film is also being considered. Either way, Arrow is becoming the sort of catalyst for Time Warner stock that Walt Disney (DIS 2.40%) hopes Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will be when the show makes its debut next week on ABC, Tim says.
