Fancy.


I liked the Suicide Squad in Arrow and it's a pity they all got killed off (particularly Waller, who I thought was a fun antagonistic ally for Ollie and Diggle) for the movie, especially given that the movie wasn't great.

Eh, if the show gets the green list they could bring back Deadshot or Waller without much fuss.

Like I'm all for DEAD MEANS DEAD, but Arrow's far past that point.

Yeah. If Suicide Squad had been good I'd have been fine with them turfing the Arrowverse SS for it, but for them to get ganked and then the movie turn out to be a turd, it's like

And they're in such a weird limbo space if they want to try and walk it back and bring back Waller or Deadshot or Boomerang or, hell, even give Harley Quinn her proper Arrowverse intro, because even though no one actually liked Suicide Squad it still made a shitload of money somehow.

Deadshot was the most obvious walk backable death ever. He died offscreen in an explosion with no body. On tv no part of that means "dead."

Deadshot and Boomerang would be easy enough to bring back. I'm pretty sure Cupid is still around. But didn't Diggle's evil brother shoot Waller in the head? I suppose there's some kind of comic book science they could use to bring her back.

Again, more signs that the DCEU is in deep poo poo going into Justice League. They've been fighting for the right just to even say the name Bruce Wayne on Arrow since day 1 and WB HQ has always told them no, their top tier heroes and villains were reserved for the movies.

If we actually see Bruce Wayne or god forbid even Batman in the Arrowverse, the DCEU is as good as 'd.

If we see Bruce Wayne it drat well better be David Mazouz. He's done an amazing job, and I'd pay good money for a Gotham/Arrow crossover, though obviously they'd have to have gotham taking place on an alternate earth.

Yeah but if its Kate Kane they would add her to add drama to the Alex/maggie storyline, or it could be the thing that brings them together they were both engaged to Maggie and it ended poorly.
If it didn't look like they're headed to an Alex/Maggie breakup, introducing Kate could be the big nasty breakup Maggie needs to put to rest before she can fully commit to Alex. That and Kate and Kara could compare notes about "their more famous cousins."

FilthyImp posted:

Kate hews a bit too close to Lena, but adorable Babs Batgirl would be a great midpoint between Kara and Guardian.

I like the symmetry of the cousins having a team up, which is a plus for Kate. Babs is always my default Batgirl, but she's getting a movie of her own so it'd be nice to see Cass or Stephanie get more exposure. Probably Cass over Stephanie simply because mostly mute assassin makes a better contrast to Kara's personality.

If they want Batwoman that bad, they could just use Alex, since she basically is Batwoman at this point (right down to marrying Mags, or trying to anyway).

Giving her her exosuit back and calling her Power Girl without the ridiculous costume makes more sense than making her part of the bat family, though, and even the Power Girl thing doesn't make any sense

I know that it really doesn't mean anything but Mazouz has said he wants to do an Arrow crossover. Although I believe his idea for it would involve time travel, saying that Gotham was happening in Arrow's past.

Nah, have it be revealed that the Waller they met was a body double/impostor the whole time and the real one was in hiding running even more covert ops.

It's not any stranger than the most recent time she faked her death in the comics involving Deadshot shooting her in the heart with a magic bullet.

Dig’s kid is only relevant when Barry’s zipping through time loving with their basic existence. Also Lyla probably has some kind of RoboDiggle LMD in a closet at ARGUS she’ll just whip out if anything happens to him.

has dig completed his character arc, and the show would be fine without him, leaving Rene to fill his role?

I would love to see Bruce Wayne and Batman be introduced to Arrow and Supergirl, and then have it be revealed that they're only the same person on Earth-38. Earth-1 Waynes never died, and Bruce is an affable businessman who secretly offers support to Batman, feeling a strange kinship with him.

While I like this, I also like the idea of Ollie getting a phone call from Bruce yelling at him in the gravelly bat-voice while he just sits there with a poo poo eating grin
