One of the best parts about The CW’s version of the DC universe is the way they manage to nearly seemlessly weave the characters in and out of all four superhero shows. The annual multi-episode crossovers have become events which fans really look forward to and this year’s crossover is set to be the biggest yet. While it may be a bit too early to talk about that one, it is fun to think about the crossover possibilities.
During The Flash panel at Dragon*Con 2017 in Atlanta this weekend, the cast members in attendance were asked which crossovers with The CW’s other DC shows they would like to be a part of in the future.
First, Rick Cosnett, who was a series regular as Eddie Thawne in Season 1 and has made a couple of appearances since, said that he would like Eddie to meet Emily Bett Rickard’s character Felicity Smoak from Arrow:
“Well, I’ve always said Felicity. I think Eddie and her would be a power couple.”
Next, John Wesley Shipp — who played Barry’s father Henry Allen for two seasons, and now plays the real Jay Garrick, The Flash of Earth-3 — revealed that he would like to appear on Legends of Tomorrow (an idea I floated a while back):
“I wanna go play with Brandon [Routh] and Victor. I’ve known Victor Garber for, my God, 25, 28 years. I’d love to go over there and play in a different sandbox for an episode or two. That would be fun.”
Finally, Matt Letscher, who plays Eobard Thawne/Reverse Flash on both The Flash and Legends, described a more unique interaction that he would really like to see:
“I have a weird answer to this question, and it’s so self-absorbed and appropriate. I want to interact with another version of Eobard. I wanna interact with pre-psychotic Eobard, but this is a whole origin story thing…”
The Flash stars Grant Gustin as Barry Allen/The Flash, Candice Patton as Iris West, Danielle Panabaker as Caitlin Snow/Killer Frost, Carlos Valdes as Cisco Ramon/Vibe, Tom Cavanagh as Harrison Wells, Jesse L. Martin as Detective Joe West and Keiynan Lonsdale as Wally West/Kid Flash. Here’s the official synopsis:
Running up against an evil time remnant version of yourself is something no one should ever have to do, but that’s exactly what faced Barry Allen (aka The Flash) as he fought to save the life of fiancée Iris West from the God of Speed known as Savitar. Barry’s victory was short-lived, however, as an unbalanced Speed Force began to wreak havoc on Central City, forcing Barry to sacrifice himself for the greater good. With The Fastest Man Alive now trapped inside an extra-dimensional energy, and unknown dangers lurking in the shadows, it will be up to Team Flash to free Barry from his own personal Hell.
The Flash returns for its fourth season on October 10th at 8/9c on The CW.
Heroes We Want To See In ‘Legends Of Tomorrow’ Season 3
**This article contains spoilers for the Legends of Tomorrow Season 2 finale.**
The Season 2 Finale for DC’s Legends of Tomorrow (check out my review if you haven’t already) certainly left things off on an interesting note. But now’s the time to look to the future. It’s time to look ahead to Season 3.
Legends showrunner Phil Klemmer recently teased new characters appearing in Season 3. That’s what’s great about this type of show is the ability to regularly swap team members in and out. It helps keep the show fresh. As Klemmer puts it, in this show, “the only thing that has to remain is the Waverider.” The DC universe is packed with awesome characters that would be perfect for an appearance in Legends and this show provides the unique opportunity to introduce DC superheroes and villains from any place and any time. Whether it be the past, as was the case with recurring characters like Jonah Hex or the Justice Society of America, or the future, as we saw with Connor Hawke in Season 1, this show can make it work. So, we thought it would be fun to take a look at some of the characters that could possibly appear on Legends of Tomorrow Season 3.
First, though, a couple of disclaimers. Some of these characters are more likely to actually appear on the show than others, but all of them could work with a little creative writing. Some of these people might have appeared in the Arrowverse before, but not on Legends of Tomorrow (for the most part). Some might make more sense in a one-off appearance while some could work as potential new season-long team members. Finally, I didn’t include any of the characters that are already appearing in the DCEU films.
So, without further adieu, here are the 10 heroes we want to see in Legends of Tomorrow Season 3. Hit the next button below to begin!
