The Flash Theory Explains Stephen Amell Becomes Red Death After Arrow Ends

Elseworlds Grant Gustin Green Arrow Stephen Amell Superman The Flash Supergirl Red DeathAn intriguing theory explains how Arrow star Stephen Amell could become villain Red Death on The Flash.

Arrow is currently in its seventh season and it has officially been announced that the upcoming eighth season will be the final season. For now, The Flash is set to continue on after its current fifth season and it has already teased an awesome new baddie for The Flash (Grant Gustin) to battle, Red Death.

The CW’s Arrowverse recently faced its biggest reality-altering event yet with last year’s Elseworlds, which set up this year’s holiday season Arrowverse event, an adaptation of the comic book Crisis on Infinite Earths. Along the way, the Scarlet Speedster will also have to face off against one of his most powerful foes yet.

A new theory from Reddit user Zoom explains how Arrow star Stephen Amell could take on the mantle of Red Death when the villain finally shows up on The Flash. Check out the intriguing new theory in the post below.

[Spoiler] [Theory] Red Death is coming to The Flash. With the End of Arrow… from FlashTV

In the comics, Red Death is a villain whose true identity is Bruce Wayne. After Earth-52 Batman defeats The Flash and straps him to the front of his Batmobile, the Caped Crusader drives them both into the Speed Force like a twisted version of Back to the Future. After this, the two fuse together to become one person, Red Death. Batman did this because The Flash previously refused him access to the Speed Force.

Because The CW’s Arrowverse has featured Bruce Wayne/Batman by name only, the theory above tries to find a way that Red Death could fit into the show’s current timeline. There could be a number of ways for the series to create a new origin for the villain but this theory certainly finds a way to make it tie into the whole Arrowverse in a very emotional way, with its inaugural hero becoming its newest foe.

We’ll be sure to keep you updated on all news regarding the future of Stephen Amell as Green Arrow, as well as Red Death’s arrival to The Flash, as soon as more information becomes available.

Suicide Squad Characters That Can Appear In The James Gunn Sequel

Previous1 of 11

James Gunn Suicide Squad DC ComicsJames Gunn is directing The Suicide Squad for Warner Bros. but that comes at a cost.

When the first Suicide Squad was about to hit theaters DC fans were completely ecstatic. The trailers looked great and the feel of the movie was much different than the darkness that preceded it in Man of Steel and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. This movie was expected to be one of DC's biggest hits and it turned out to be one of the biggest let-downs of all time.

Suicide Squad was bad and its reviews reflected that. It was one of the only movies I've ever been upset at and it made me want to leave the theater. A sequel was announced because the film did well at the box office, going through a number of drafts until James Gunn was brought on to write it. With James Gunn now officially set to direct The Suicide Squad, it looks like the film will be a bit of a soft reboot.

Last night was a bit of a DC maelstrom of news. We got the release dates and official titles of Matt Reeves' The Batman and James Gunn's The Suicide Squad. Both movies will be hitting theaters in Summer 2021. Throughout all of the chaos a small tidbit surfaced about The Suicide Squad: the James Gunn-directed film will be some sort of relaunch with new characters and actors. Here are the characters I think James Gunn should introduce in his Suicide Squad movie. Hit Next to view all of my choices.

Amanda Waller

Suicide Squad Amanda Waller Viola Davis

Warner Bros. and DC may want to reboot Suicide Squad, but it would be seriously dumb for them to recast Amanda Waller. Viola Davis was one of the saving graces of the first film and bringing her back is the smart thing to do. Amanda Waller is the one that puts the group together and she shouldn't be changed due to a new director.

Black Manta

Aquaman Black Manta

Yahya Abdul-Mateen II made his debut as Black Manta in Aquaman and he didn’t get much screen time. The Suicide Squad is the best place for Black Manta to receive some character development and for audiences to see him grow as a villain. Black Manta is a main squad member in the New 52 and I think James Gunn could do the character justice.

Deadshot

Deadshot Will Smith

Another bright spot from the first film: Will Smith as Floyd Lawton, a.k.a. Deadshot. Will Smith is one of the most famous actors of all time and throughout every review of Suicide Squad his character shines. His charisma and screen presence dominated the film. Not bringing Smith back would be sabotaging the sequel as fans will expect the actor to return following his great performance.

Deathstroke

Deathstroke JoeManganiello

Joe Manganiello made his debut as Deathstroke in the post-credits scene of Justice League. His character wasn't as eager for a team-up as Lex Luthor, but we could see the assassin enroll in the Suicide Squad. It could be great for Manganiello as his Deathstroke film has been put on the back-burner.

Killer Frost

Killer Frost DC Comics

This character is unlikely to show up in The Suicide Squad as she's being heavily utilized in The Flash series on The CW. But, if James Gunn does get his hands on Killer Frost, I guarantee the character will not be a complete shitshow like in the series. Hopefully the director can make Killer Frost as villainous as possible.

Poison Ivy

Poison Ivy DC Comics

Poison Ivy will definitely return to the big screen. Pamela Isley made her big screen debut in Batman & Robin with Uma Thurman playing the character and while that film is so campily terrible, fans are looking forward to a modern take on the iconic DC Comics villain. Poison Ivy is rumored to be part of a Gotham City Sirens film and a rumored Birds of Prey versus The Gotham City Siren project. Ivy could definitely make her DC Extended Universe debut in The Suicide Squad and then return for more movies.

King Shark

King Shark DC Comics

King Shark was supposed to be in the first Suicide Squad, but ultimately didn't make the cut. The concept art of the character shows the cold-blooded amphibious mutant in a Hawaiian shirt looking like a totally monstrous shark. If James Gunn does decide to utilize this character it would be fun to see what he does on screen.

Bronze Tiger

Bronze Tiger DC Comics

Bronze Tiger was heavily featured in the first half of Arrow season 7. He was a major help to Oliver Queen during his tenure in prison. But Arrow hasn't done a very accurate version of Bronze Tiger and The Suicide Squad could be the first place we get to see Ben Turner really let loose.

Bane

Bane DC Comics

Bane is an interesting choice to join The Suicide Squad. He is a member in the comics and even the first film had some concept art featuring his mask. Fans are clamoring for Guardians of the Galaxy star Dave Bautista to join the film as the iconic Batman villain, having the actor reunite with James Gunn.

    We’ve already seen future Oliver Queen as the Green Arrow in Legends.

    Even theories tend to need some form of evidence or thought process. A “what if” isn’t a theory unless you could reasonably understand and explain why it might happen and why it might be more likely to happen than something else (or literally nothing). Given what’s been said, it’s highly unlikely for anything like this to occur. Even the briefest “but it wouldn’t require the Green Arrow tv show” thought process comes to a grinding halt when you realize how absurd a character change this would require given what’s obviously going to happen in the next crossover. Why go from that level of hero to generic basic speedster villain that would IMMEDIATELY be spoiled by the internet?

    It would obviously be an alternate earths version of Oliver guys.
