Stephen Amell Would Like To Do More With Supergirl's Melissa Benoist
The CW's DCTV universe has become known for its crossovers, which bring the DC Comics-inspired heroes from the network's four shows together in new and exciting ways. But for Arrow star Stephen Amell, there's one hero he'd like to partner up with more.
Amell is in Nashville this weekend for Heroes and Villains Fan Fest, and appeared at a panel moderated by ComicBook.com's Brandon Davis. During the panel, Amell was asked which of his fellow CW superheroes he wants Oliver Queen/Green Arrow to team up with.
"I'm always going to be partial to Barry Allen because I gave him his superhero name, stuff like that." Amell revealed. "I would like to do some more work with Supergirl."
While Oliver and Kara Danvers/Supergirl (Melissa Benoist) first crossed paths in this year's four-show 'Invasion!' crossover, the pair primarily teamed up in the larger group setting. In the early portions of the crossover, Oliver doubted Kara's contributions to the team, only to be quickly proven otherwise once she saved his life.
And Supergirl did partner up with Oliver's new recruits - Ragman, Wild Dog, and Mr. Terrific - during the Arrow portion of the crossover, but it was while Oliver was stuck in an alien-induced dream world. This means that a proper team up between the two is long overdue - possibly in the emotionally intense crossover planned for this fall.

UP NEXT: Arrow Season 6 Begins Production
After a violent shipwreck, billionaire playboy Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) was missing and presumed dead for five years before being discovered alive on a remote island in the North China Sea. He returned home to Star City, bent on righting the wrongs done by his family and fighting injustice. As the Green Arrow, he protects his city with the help of former soldier John Diggle (David Ramsey), computer-science expert Felicity Smoak (Emily Bett Rickards), his vigilante-trained sister Thea Queen (Willa Holland), Deputy Mayor Quentin Lance (Paul Blackthorne), brilliant inventor Curtis Holt (Echo Kellum), and his new recruits, street-savvy Rene Ramirez (Rick Gonzalez) and meta-human Dinah Drake (Juliana Harkavy).
Oliver has finally solidified and strengthened his crime-fighting team only to have it threatened when unexpected enemies from his past return to Star City, forcing Oliver to rethink his relationship with each member of his "family".
