It just occurred to me maybe the hint in the Flash pilot at the [SPOILER - highlight to read]: Crisis storyline could be used to connect the Tv- verse to the Movie- verse. They could easily say [SPOILER - highlight to read]: that they are different Universes but part of the same Multiverse. That way no one could argue about the Movies stifling the creativity of the Tv show or Vice Versa. Plus it would make a heck of a storyline for one of the mediums to use.
At least that way the Flash's Tv Origin [SPOILER - highlight to read]: would suffice for the movies, as they could easily say/hint that the Origins of the 2 Universe's within the Multi-verse are pretty similar. They would also be free to use Stephen Amell or Grant Gustin in the films if they WANTED, without having to mention anything in the Tv Series, as there will be many parallels in the parallel Universes. But they would also be completely free to cast different people, seen as they are still different Universes.
I mean come on, they've mentioned the word [SPOILER - highlight to read]: CRISIS That just makes anything possible now!
Thats a really good thought...the only thing is Stephen Amell recently said that hes not going to have anything to do with the movie universe. I guess that doesn't mean that they can't connect it for The Flash.
That already happened lol The Adam West Batman was in the Schooby Doo cartoon. As was a lot of his villains.
I think his exact words were that he's not in Batman V Superman because the logistics of a Shared TV/Movie Universe is difficult to work. Of course I'm not talking about a Shared Universe, I'm talking about a Shared Multi-Verse
But maybe the writers of Flash have hinted at CRISIS just for the possibility of doing something like that in the future. They would still obviously have to convince WB. Also I doubt Amell would know all the possibilities the writers of Arrow are discussing for years down the line, let alone the writers of The Flash.
Anyway we can always hope!
Lol if WB announced they were doing it, Golgo would suddenly be all for it! He tends to back all of WB's decisions on their DC properties.
Now that I really think of it, it would be a little difficult introducing the concept of a multiverse in the movies. The fact that there's a multiverse can't be a side plot, it has to be the main plot.
Establishing a multiverse, and simultaneously Arrow and Flash, is a challenge a good writer can accomplish.
lol like I said its a good thought. I remember hearing a rumor awhile back that if The Flash show was successful they would consider just connecting it to the movie verse. But I can't speak for the validity of the rumor.
