While this is probably more wishful thinking than anything else, Arrow star Stephen Amell says that there’s no reason DC characters like Batman and The Joker, and even Superman, couldn’t one day appear on The CW’s hit TV series.
Stopping by the Heroes & Villains Fanfest, Amell took part in a Q&A session and was asked about the possibility of seeing the aforementioned characters on Arrow one day, and here’s what he had to say:
“The Joker could come to Arrow, Batman could come to Arrow, Superman could show up on The Flash. There’s a whole myriad of options because again DC and WB have a slate of films coming up, and those films happen, and maybe Arrow’s still around when they’re done. Or maybe there’s a change and people are just like, ‘You know what, let’s invest in something that’s doing well for us.’ So you never know.”
I suppose it’s not entirely outside the realm of possibility, but seeing major players like Batman and Supes head to the small screen for Arrow just doesn’t seem like it will be happening any time soon, if ever. In the comics they certainly have a lot of history together, but with the way the DCEU is being set up and mapped out, I can’t see them crossing paths on The CW.
Still, given the fact that Amell didn’t completely rule out a chance of these characters making an appearance, perhaps there’s still hope. It’s certainly something that the fans would love to see, and if the producers could work it all out so that it feels organic and not just shoehorned in, then why not go for it?
