When The CW brings back its slate of primetime stapes this fall, fans should expect some fun things from Supernatural. The show will enter its twelfth season and celebrate the milestone with a special Scooby Doo crossover. But, if Stephen Amell has his way, Supernatural may also tie into Arrow one day.
In the past, the Arrow star has teased his interest in a Supernatural team-up, but Amell took his interest a step forward recently. The actor took to Facebook Live (via CinemaBlend) to answer questions for a Q&A, and it was there Amell said he is down to partner up.
"I mean, that's really up to Jensen and Jared. I heard that they're getting a spin-off which is exciting but as the much, much more senior members of the CW family, it really would be about finding a moment in their schedule to make all the fans happy," Amell said. "I'm totally up for it. I'm not trying to pass the buck, but the buck is now sitting at their feet."
So, it is up to Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki now to give the crossover a thumbs up.
In the past, Amell has signaled his interest in an Arrow/Supernatural outing. Last year, the actor shared a photo of the Arrowverse cast posing for a selfie with the Supernatural leads. "This is the crossover we need," Amell captioned the image,
If Supernatural needed to team up with part of the Arrowverse, then Amell's series would be the perfect choice. Both series mesh tonally thanks to their dark overtones, and Oliver Queen's no-nonsense attitude would deliciously clash with Dean Winchester's bravado. There's no doubt that Felicity would fall for Sam's geeky charms, and fans would love to see Green Arrow retrofit his arrows with salt-lined tips. You know, because ghosts.
Still, the implications of such a crossover make it difficult for Arrow to approach Supernatural. The comic-based show is firmly set within the DC Universe and ties into other series like The Flash, Supergirl, and DC's Legends Of Tomorrow. If Supernatural were to canonically slip into Arrow, then the Winchester Brothers would become related to all of The CW's other superhero shows. And, really, there is no telling how the hunters would react to Martian Manhunter if the trio even ran into one another.
The CW's DC Comics shows will return for the 2017-2018 television season in October. The CW will also be at Comic-Con International: San Diego, where more information about the upcoming season and crossover may be revealed.
With the future of the team left hanging in the balance, Arrow gave new definition to the phrase "blowing up the show." The emotional showdown between Oliver Queen and Adrian Chase was the perfect conclusion to a stellar fifth season of The CW's gritty DC Super Hero series. Now, the focus shifts to uncovering the fate of each and every member of Team Arrow. Could anyone have possibly survived an island-wide explosion, or has the book closed on them, as it has on Oliver's five-year flashback story? Returning to San Diego Comic-Con for a sixth consecutive year, cast members Stephen Amell, David Ramsey, Willa Holland, Emily Bett Rickards, Paul Blackthorne, Katie Cassidy, Echo Kellum, Juliana Harkavy, Rick Gonzalez and producers will be on-hand for an eye-opening conversation about the upcoming season.
