These days, we’ve gotten so used to superheroes crossing over on screens both big and small that we sometimes overlook the red tape that may separate them. Late last year, we were treated to a four-show crossover involving Supergirl, The Flash, Arrow and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, but, need we remind you, those all air on The CW. So, aside from the headaches that come with scheduling and budgeting, that was pretty easy to make a reality.
Still, there are some that want to see Gotham get a piece of the action, a feat that may be impossible to achieve. Yes, we’re well aware that an inter-network crossover occurred last year between The Flash and Supergirl when the latter was still over at CBS, but it’s important to remember CBS has stake in The CW, therefore that was able to happen. But with Gotham being at Fox, well, we’d advise you to not hold your breath in hope of seeing it take part in a DC TV crossover.
Regardless of that, Bruce Wayne himself, David Mazouz, recently laid out a reasonable plan – at least plot-wise – as to how the Scarlet Speedster could come to his corner of the DC Universe when speaking with Movie Pilot:
“I feel like we could easily do a Flash crossover, because he travels in time now. The biggest obstacle before The Flash came out, when it was just Arrow, was that Gotham is set in the past and Arrow was set in the present. We were not in the same time period, so how could we possibly do a crossover?”
Something I’ve admired about Mazouz is that he’s a fan of the material, not just an actor. In fact, what he had to say next proves just that:
“However, now that we know time travel was not only introduced, but widely used in the Flarrowverse with Legends of Tomorrow and The Flash, it’s very plausible that a crossover could happen, because they could come back in time and visit Gotham. I would totally support it. I’m a huge fan. I think that would be awesome.”
As awesome as that sounds, it’ll likely just remain a fantasy unless Fox were to ever drop Gotham and The CW were to pick it up, something many fans have jokingly suggested on social media. So, until such a thing happens, we’ll just have to ponder the possibilities along with the rest of you.
