With five seasons of Arrow, three of The Flash and two apiece of Supergirl and Legends of Tomorrow behind it, the Arrowverse contains… a heck of a lot of TV. Due to the formula of these shows – an overarching big bad, with smaller threats scattered throughout the season – the writers have plundered a huge number of villains from the DC comics universe. Everyone from big-hitters like Ra’s al Ghul and Deathstroke to those resting at the bottom of the villainous barrel have shown their face over the years.
Despite how many antagonists that the four shows have brought to the screen already, though, they’ve missed some villains that we’re really surprised haven’t found their way into the Arrowverse yet. No, we’re not talking about those bad guys who are never in a million years going to make an appearance – like, say, the Joker – but those foes that would be perfect matches to the tones and styles of these shows.
Here are 9 characters who we’re still waiting to see in either Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl or Legends of Tomorrow. We think they’d all be a great fit for these shows and are confident that you’ll agree, too.
