‘The Flash’: Producer Greg Berlanti Discusses ‘Supergirl’ Crossover Possibility, ‘Versus Zoom,’ And Jay Mewes Appearance First Looks, And Wentworth Miller Responds To ‘Bodyshaming’

The Flash has been traveling lately, and not just between Big Belly burger and Star Labs, but between time, space, and National City in the first Supergirl crossover episode with The Flash. The Flash/Supergirl crossover was significant, both with the characters that are represented and also a crossover between two different TV networks.

Flash executive producer Greg Berlanti is eying another crossover, and not on the same show or network. According to Comicbook, Berlanti would like to see Supergirl crossover with CW’s The Flash in the future.

“We would love that. We’re waiting to see the audience reaction from something like this.”

Like everything else in television, the viewers and fans determine what happens, at least with The Flash. Berlanti hopes that not only could Supergirl crossover with The Flash, but with Arrow, Legends of Tomorrow, and, of course, sharing supporting characters like Cisco, Felicity, and Caitlyn. The Flash, of course, has bigger concerns on his mind than crossover episodes.

The Flash episode titled “Flashback” might have just given Barry Allen the tools he needs to best Zoom, as they look to be meeting again in the very next episode in about two weeks. The aptly titled “Versus Zoom” episode will see The Flash face off against the Season 2 menace again. Although fans of The Flash must wait weeks to see the next epic confrontation with Zoom, there has been photo stills released ahead of that episode.

Although the Flash episode is of significance to the show, another much later episode photo has also been released. The Inquisitr reported that Kevin Smith directed a later episode of The Flash, but this was not all he did while he was working for CW. Smith is well-known for his duo Jay and Silent Bob, although he is well-known throughout the comic book community, and he has Comic Book Men to show for that. Kevin Smith’s love of DC Comics brought him to The Flash for his CW directorial debut.

However, Smith couldn’t come all the way to the CW to direct The Flash without bringing Jason Mewes to the set. He did not just bring Jay to the set — he actually managed to get him a bit part. Smith posted a photo still of Jason Mewes, The Flash’s nemesis Zoom, and Kevin Smith on the set of the comic book TV show.

Speaking of photos, memes have overtaken the internet in the past decade, whether they’re of celebrities to geeky, comic book-related ones like that of The Flash, Arrow, or others. Sadly, some, like the one that has been making its rounds of Captain Cold actor Wentworth Miller, do not always have comedy behind them. The Wentworth Miller meme that has been circulating depicts Miller now and in the past.

Unfortunately, whether intended or otherwise, the out-of-shape picture was from an otherwise dark time in the Flash star’s life. Miller took to Facebook to explain that he was a low point in his career and personal life that was also a place that drove to suicidal thoughts.

“Today I found myself the subject of an Internet meme. Not for the first time. This one, however, stands out from the rest. In 2010, semi-retired from acting, I was keeping a low-profile for a number of reasons. First and foremost, I was suicidal. This is a subject I’ve since written about, spoken about, shared about, but at the time I suffered in silence. As so many do. The extent of my struggle known to very, very few. Ashamed and in pain, I considered myself damaged goods. And the voices in my head urged me down the path to self-destruction. Not for the first time. I’ve struggled with depression since childhood.”

Wentworth Miller went on to explain that the photo was caught by paparazzi at the time and published under a demeaning title of “From Hunk to Chunk.” Miller explained that despite the terrible memories the meme brought back, he wasn’t crushed.

“The first time I saw this meme pop up in my social media feed, I have to admit, it hurt to breathe. But as with everything in life, I get to assign meaning. And the meaning I assign to this my image is Strength. Healing. Forgiveness. Of myself and others. If you or someone you know is struggling, help is available. Reach out. Text. Send an email. Pick up the phone. Someone cares. They’re waiting to hear from you. Much love.”

The Flash fan or other trolls who posted Miller’s meme likely didn’t know all the background behind it, but Wentworth Miller himself used the tease to an important, moving message that will hopefully teach people something.
