Stephen Amell discussed potential crossovers with Black Lightning and Superman in a recent convention Q&A. Stephen Amell Crossover Talk: Black Lightning, Superman, Tom Welling

During his recent appearance at a panel at the Motor City Comic Con, Stephen Amell was asked if Black Lightning will be a part of this year’s crossover, and whether or not the hero (played by Cress Williams on his own CW series) is on Earth-1 with the other heroes.

“I don’t know if Black Lightning is on Earth-1,” Stephen said to the fan who asked. “I think it would be fun to do a crossover because I like Cress and I like the people on that show. I’m not confirming it. I don’t know anything. I just think it would be fun.”

There is someone new that he’ll get to work with, at least. “I do know that in the crossover this year, I get to work with a major character that I have never worked with before,” he teased.

Dare we to hope that hero is Superman? We do know, at least, that Batwoman is a hero Oliver hasn’t met before that he’ll be working with.

Spoilers aside, when answering an unrelated question, Stephen did say that Superman is a character he’d like to see in the Arrowverse.

“Superman. I thought that Tyler [Hoechlin] did a great job, and I had an opportunity to fangirl over Tom Welling,” Amell said, referring to the Smallville star. “And by the way, people say that I was the start of this. I wasn’t the start of this. He was the start of this. I would love for Oliver and Clark to eventually meet. I think that would be incredible.”

Arrow returns for Season 7 later this year, where the show will be airing Mondays at 9PM.
