Stephen Amell Says 'Arrow' & 'Black Lightning' Are 'Probably Gonna Cross Over'

Admit it, it’s kind of been on your mind – a Black Lightning and Arrow crossover episode. Us too.

Arrow star Stephen Amell thinks that a crossover is inevitable.

“Everyone pretends like we’re not going to eventually cross over with Black Lightning, but we’re probably gonna cross over with Black Lightning, because that’s just the way that the world works,” he said.

“I think that anything you can do to expand the universe and to build out what we’ve built on our show would be great,” Stephen continued. “So I’m glad that show’s doing well, I hope that it has a very successful run, and I would love to be a small part of it in some way, shape, or form.”

Black Lightning showrunner Salim Akil has previously stated that their show is not a part of the Arrowverse and crossover eps won’t happen.

    I don’t think the producers of Black Lightning have completely ruled out crossovers. They just wanted to get the show established first. Maybe if they don’t want to be part of the big crossover, just a character here and there. A good choice might be having Helen Slater’s Eliza Danvers appear on Black Lightning, since she’s a scientist and mother of a superhero and DEO agent and meet Lynn in someway. And if they had Legends travel the multiverse, possibly meet the Pierces at some point, though Black Lightning is a much more serious show than LoT is.

      There’s also the idea of having Mari McCabe’s Vixen on her own being in Freeland. She’s been on Arrow, as well as in animation that could tie them a bit to the Arrowverse.

    If the Black lighting people do not want to be part of that universe that will be a horrible move on their part IMO. One of the cool part of all these shows is how they do sorta blend together I mean that’s how comics work………………………………………………………………………..
