Over the years, Arrow has been introducing many DC Comics characters and now, the series star, Stephen Amell says that he does not mind crossing paths with one more character.
During a panel at Comic Con, Amell was recently asked which Arrowverse character he would most like to cross over with. He revealed that he wants to see Oliver Queen interact with the Clark Kent/Superman (Tyler Hoechlin).
“Superman.”Amell had said.
“I thought that Tyler did a great job, and I had an opportunity to fangirl over [Smallville star] Tom Welling. I would love for Oliver and Clark to eventually meet. I think that that would be incredible.”
Fans have been wondering about the future of Hoechlin’s Superman, after he made many appearances in season 2 of Supergirl. And while it is possible that Clark can return, it does sound like he may not do so without his cousin, Kara Danvers/Supergirl (Melissa Benoist).
“The role of [Superman] coming into this, for me, from the very beginning, was to support her, which lends itself to being a supporting character,” Hoechlin had said.
“There was never an intention for this to be about him. It’s always about her. It’s called Supergirl, and Melissa has done such a great job. For him, it’s always about building her up and being there to impart wisdom when he can and support her when he can, but in no way try to make her feel like she’s not capable of doing anything that he could do.”
With this being said, a few fans have suggested the possibility of Superman moving to Earth-1:
“I think he takes the responsibility of having to do things on his own when he has to and when that’s the only option, but to work as a team and to come in and find where you can contribute.” Hoechlin had said last year.
“That’s part of being a good leader as well, is knowing when to step back and let someone else lead and find out where you can serve best.”
Supergirl is now airing Mondays at 8/7c on The CW. Arrow’s seventh season will debut Mondays this fall at 9/8c, following new episodes of Legends of Tomorrow.
