These DC icons are a bit of camera-shy.
The Arrowverse has grown significantly over the previous six years. What was as soon as a grounded model of the DC Universe targeted primarily on human vigilantes has develop into a multiverse stuffed with speedsters, aliens, magicians and different metahuman oddballs. However even in any case this time, there are some main DC characters who’ve but to place in an look. Typically small hints are the perfect we are able to hope for… which is the place this listing is available in!
From Batman to Marvel Lady to Inexperienced Lantern, these are our favourite DC superhero references, cameos and hints within the Arrowverse.
Watch the video above to listen to some theories on the place the Arrow multiverse may very well be headed subsequent!
Aside from Ra’s al Ghul, many of the main Batman villains have been off-limits on Arrow. However that didn’t cease Harley Quinn from making a short cameo look in Season 2’s “Suicide Squad,” the place she supplied to assist the Diggles work by their relationship troubles. Better of all, frequent Harley voice actor Tara Robust offered the voice for this scene.
Hal Jordan’s Jacket
The closest we’ve gotten to seeing a Inexperienced Lantern within the Arrowverse got here in Arrow’s Season Four premiere. A flashback set in a Coast Metropolis bar kicks off with a close-up shot of a patron sporting a flight jacket with the identify “Jordan” emblazoned on it. That must be Hal Jordan, although whether or not that is pre- or post-induction into the Inexperienced Lantern Corps is anybody’s guess.
Earth-2 Barry’s Cellphone
Barry Allen is probably not a speedster on Earth-2, however he appears to have a couple of superhero associates anyway. The Flash episode “Welcome to Earth-2” options an old school telephone with a number of fascinating names printed on it, together with Bruce, Clark, Diana and Hal. That’s principally a full-fledged Justice league proper at Barry’s fingertips.
Ollie Namedrops Bruce Wayne
Does Batman really exist within the Arrowverse? The jury remains to be out for now, however because of Arrow Season 6, we all know there’s a Bruce Wayne. Oliver Queen namedrops Gotham Metropolis’s most well-known billionaire orphan at the same time as he tries to persuade the press he isn’t the Inexperienced Arrow.
Helen of Troy on Themyscira
Given her huge recognition on the large display nowadays, we’re nearly stunned that Marvel Lady hasn’t been added to the Arrowverse (though maybe her cinematic recognition is the explanation Warner Bros. is being stingy). However at the very least her residence island of Themyscira confirmed up in Legends of Tomorrow, as Zari introduced Helen of Troy to stay among the many Amazons and rework from damsel-in-distress to butt-kicking heroine.
President Marsdin’s Invisible Jet
We all the time get a kick out of seeing traditional DC TV actors taking over new roles within the Arrowverse, and that’s very true for former Marvel Lady Lynda Carter as President Olivia Marsdin on Supergirl. This Season 2 episode paid homage to Carter’s DC legacy by alluding to Marvel Lady’s iconic invisible jet, even when we couldn’t *see* it.
Ollie Mentions Oracle
On condition that she’s the designated tech assist for Workforce Arrow and grappled with paralysis for a time, Felicity Smoak shares loads in widespread with Barbara Gordon. A lot in order that Felicity nearly stole Barbara’s Oracle codename in Season 4. On this episode, Inexperienced Arrow bestows the Overwatch mantle upon Felicity, admitting that he would have picked Oracle if the identify weren’t already taken. Is it an excessive amount of to hope for an Overwatch/Oracle crossover?
Felicity’s Demise Cosplay
This one is a little more of a stretch. Not one of the Arrowverse exhibits have ever instantly referenced the characters or mythology of Neil Gaiman’s Sandman saga. Nonetheless, one Arrow episode contains a flashback of a youthful Felicity decked out in full Goth mode. Her black hair, black tank prime and ankh medallion all strongly hearken again to Demise as she’s portrayed in Sandman and its varied spinoffs. This appears to be an intentional visible homage. Whether or not it is a signal of extra Sandman references to return stays to be seen.
A number of characters from completely different branches of the multiverse have talked about the underwater kingdom of Atlantis — a.ka., the realm dominated by Aquaman! On Earth-2, Atlantis by no means really sank beneath the ocean, and that world’s Barry Allen even purchased his dad and mom tickets to go to the island.
Cheetah’s Jail Cell
Marvel Lady could have but to look within the Arrowverse, however one in every of her most iconic foes undoubtedly exists there. Close to the top of The Flash Season 3, Barry groups up with Captain Chilly to sneak into an ARGUS facility. Amongst different issues, they encounter a locked jail cell containing the lethal Cheetah, who apparently as soon as served on Amanda Waller’s Suicide Squad.
