Stephen Amell Wishes Arrow Could’ve Crossed Over With Lost


As you’re well aware, Arrow is no stranger to crossovers at this point. Not only did it spawn several other DC-based shows that now make up what refer to as “the Arrowverse,” but it also participates in epic multi-series mashups each fall, the next of which will introduce Batwoman.

Of course, lead actor Stephen Amell still has other ambitious crossovers on his bucket list – namely one involving Arrow and Supernatural – but it looks as though another can be counted among that ilk as well. We say that because Amell was asked which TV show, regardless of whether or not it’s still airing, he’d like his own show to link up with at a panel conducted at Heroes and Villains Fan Fest in London over the weekend.

Here’s what he had to say:

LOST! I wanna show up on the island. I just wanna show up and I just wanna have a four minute scene with Michael Emerson’s character and then I want Jack to come in and be like, ‘We’ve gotta go back!’ And then I wanna leave forever.”

What’s kind of funny about the above statement is that Michael Emerson did eventually show up on Arrow as the villainous Cayden James, but DC TV is know for its vast multiverse. Then again, this is merely hypothetical and could never come to fruition because Lost aired over on ABC, but that doesn’t mean people can’t have fun pondering the possibilities.

Speaking of which, the panel’s moderator proceeded to get in on the action:

“I already have the scene in my head where it’s the fog, and the fog comes over the island, and everybody’s afraid of the fog monsters, and then it’s just Stephen in there. We thought it was a polar bear. It was Stephen Amell!”

Fantasy crossovers aside, Arrow will return for its seventh season on Monday nights this fall on The CW.
