Marc Guggenheim Teases The Possibility Of A FLASH/ARROW Crossover


tumblr_n1rmlzFZxh1smamr9o1_500We already had a mini team up of superheroes between The Flash and Arrow when Barry came to town for a two episode arc earlier this season. Okay, okay, it’s not the type you want since Barry isn’t The Flash yet, but it did happen. So what are the odds that we will see The Scarlett Speedster and The Emerald Archer team up again on the small screen? Well if you talk to Marc Guggenheim, the answer is very good. Although he would tell you not to expect it anytime soon.

While chatting with Collider, Guggenheim was asked about the possibility of the two superheroes teaming up on the small screen again. His answer was, well, pretty perfect actually. “Well, we’re fanboys and we always fantasize about, ‘Oh, we could do this cross-over.  We could do that episode,’” he explained.  “Everything is always on the table.  I think it’s one of the things that’s made Arrow special.  But we also all collectively feel like The Flash needs to stand on its own two feet, now that it’s gotten its launch from Arrow.  I would say, as with all things, we trust our instincts to know when is the right time.  Our compass has always just been our gut instinct.  When the time is right, it will happen.  Greg [Berlanti], Andrew [Kreisberg] and Geoff [Johns] have got to finish The Flash pilot first.  There are a bunch of things that have to happen before we can start cross-pollinating shows.” He also expressed some interest in writing an episode of the show, but lamented that the script is fantastic and that the show will make a phenomenal series that would be fun to work on.

I really like his answer when it comes to a crossover event. Like he said, they need to let The Flash stand on his own two legs before they try and bring him over to fight crime with Arrow. Maybe by that time he will actually be called Green Arrow! I encourage you to head over to Collider to check out the rest of the interiew with him by l clicking the source link below.
