CW Arrow Producer Talks DC TV Series Finale, John Diggle, Green Lantern, Whether He’ll Be In New Superman and Lois Series Plus Is Oliver Queen Really Dead?!
Executive Producer Beth Schwartz, Consulting Producer Marc Guggenheim and actor David Ramsey spoke to DC to answer questions about the Arrow series finale.
Diggle’s moving to Metropolis. Does that mean we might see him on Superman & Lois?
MG: We’ve actually talked a lot about Diggle’s and David’s post-Arrow future. We’ve got some really good ideas, and I’m going to stand pat on that. But I will also say David has become a remarkable director. So, we’re as interested in him behind the cameras as we are in front.
Have we seen the last of Oliver Queen, or is there room for Stephen Amell to come back for a future crossover or guest appearance?
MG: As we’ve said, he’s become something else. The whole point of making him the Spectre was to give us story opportunities because who knows what’s going to happen in the future. The one thing I always say every time a character dies on any of these shows, is like, we’ve got alternate realities, we’ve got time travel, we’ve got flashbacks, you name it. We have all these different devices. No one’s ever really gone. I mean, look at Colin Donnell. He’s practically a series regular still into season eight. So, while I would love to see Stephen, I think (it’s a question of) how we brought him back and when. If we brought him back in, say, the seventh season premiere of Flash, it would probably diminish it a bit.
