Stephen Amell, otherwise best-known as Arrow’s Green Arrow, apparently likes to make a lot of interesting crossover suggestions. In addition to suggesting his Green Arrow should be in the Justice League film, Arnell wants to see a massive DC Comics crossover universe between TV and film.
Now, according to Comicbook.com, Amell has suggested a whole slew of crossover ideas. In his recent trip to the Dallas Comic Con, Amell mentioned three different characters and shows that he would like to see crossover.
In each of Stephen Amell’s suggestions, he provided fairly sound reason as to how or why the two shows would cross. Many might be surprised, however, that Amell brought up Constantine.
“It would be interesting. I was saying this earlier. It would be interesting to cross over with Constantine, only because he knows a lot about the Lazarus Pit, which is something that we’ve introduced in the show this year,” Amell told his audience.
Unsurprisingly, he brought up Supergirl, considering the CW did produce Smallville. So it would like fit, even though Supergirl is yet to be seen on network television.
“It would be cool to crossover with Supergirl because it’s something with Greg Berlanti, who’s the helmet and sort of the brain trust or the center of the brain trust of ‘Arrow’ and ‘The Flash’ and I know so many of the people that are involved in the production of that show so that would be really interesting.”
Stephen Amell, of course, did not stop there. He brought up one more semi-establish DC show, Gotham.
And ‘Gotham’ would be a tough one, just because I think they’re out in a different time but the crossover with ‘The Flash’ was so much fun and did so well that I can’t imagine a world — a universe, no pun intended — where that didn’t happen and continue to happen all the time.”
It would be an interesting task, considering each show is on a different network. Gotham is on Fox, Constantine is on NBC (potentially on SyFy in the future), and Supergirl is surprisingly on CBS. It would have stood to reason, especially for a crossover with Arrow and The Flash, that the network responsible for Smallville would have Supergirl. With Constantine on the move, or possibly on SyFy in the future, as the Inquisitr reported Sunday, some have suggested it moving to CW.
Though, a lot of these teases or comments tend to titillate or tantalize, Screenrant suggested they were all poppycock, or rather more fiction than reality. They point out that Stephen Amell once made the comment that a Justice League TV series was already in the works, as a spin-off from Arrow, and now the idea of a Supergirl crossover was merely “cool” or “interesting”. None of the aforementioned statements have much certainty to them.
However, it all remains to be seen. If DC fans have learned anything from all the comic book publisher’s TV adaptations, the shows progress very, very, slowly. In short, the DC universe takes its time.
