Arrow has featured a number of skilled and deadly enemies for Oliver Queen to battle, but with the CW’s superhero universe continuing to grow an impressive rogues gallery over four different shows, the emerald archer is not limited to facing off against foes from Star City. During a panel at Heroes and Villains Fan Fest Nashville, series lead Stephen Amell revealed two villains from The Flash whom he would love to see Oliver take on in the future.
In addition to expressing an interest in facing off against King Shark, Amell revealed that he would love to see a rematch with Reverse Flash:
“King Shark would be fun. No actually, I think that some iteration of Harrison Wells, the evil version would be pretty awesome to deal with. I like him. He’s smart.”
Of course, the only version of Wells who could be described as evil was the one Eobard Thawne/Reverse Flash had been posing as during the first season. Fans may recall that Oliver had already faced Thawne/Reverse Flash before the villain was defeated once and for all in Legends of Tomorrow‘s second season.
