Who could have predicted back in 2012 that Arrow would eventually spawn not one, not two but three equally successful TV series? In 2014, we got The Flash and then both Legends of Tomorrow and Supergirl came along in 2015. That’s not to mention the kind of related Constantine and animated miniseries Vixen. It’s so big now, in fact, that this corner of the DC world has become its own mini-franchise – dubbed the Arrowverse.
It might have created a vast, sprawling universe of its own, then, but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t pay homage to the DC TV shows that have come before it. The filmmakers of the different Arrowverse series seem proud of the long heritage of DC comics adaptations that have led up it, as they frequently cast stars who have previously appeared in DC projects – be it live-action TV, animated series or even movies. Sometimes they’re small cameos, other times they’re recurring roles, and a couple of them have even found regular status in the Arrowverse.
Ever watched an episode and thought “hey, I know them from some other DC thingy?” Well, we’re here to put your mind at ease, as we’ve put together a list of several actors from the Arrowverse who can also be seen in other DC projects. Give it a read on the next page and as always, be sure to let us know if we’ve missed anyone.
