Marc Guggenheim confirms ‘Arrow’-‘Flash’ crossover ‘when the time is right’

Arrow FlashEven though we all know it’s bound to happen, an Arrow-Flash crossover has been confirmed.

In a new interview with Collider, Arrow executive producer Marc Guggenheim said that a crossover will happen “when the time is right.”

“Well, we’re fanboys and we always fantasize about, ‘Oh, we could do this cross-over.  We could do that episode.’  Everything is always on the table.  I think it’s one of the things that’s made Arrow special.  But we also all collectively feel like TheFlash needs to stand on its own two feet, now that it’s gotten its launch from Arrow.  I would say, as with all things, we trust our instincts to know when is the right time.  Our compass has always just been our gut instinct.  When the time is right, it will happen.  Greg [Berlanti], Andrew [Kreisberg] and Geoff [Johns] have got to finish TheFlash pilot first.  There are a bunch of things that have to happen before we can start cross-pollinating shows.”

This, of course, is assuming that The Flash gets picked up for series by The CW, which seems all but guaranteed at this point.

Filming on The Flash pilot began last week in Vancouver and t’s assumed that at least one character from Arrow will appear in the pilot. The most likely possibility is Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards), who befriended Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) during his time in Starling City.

The two shows share executive producers (Andrew Kreisberg and Greg Berlanti), a studio lot and a universe, so a crossover — or multiple crossovers, even — only makes sense.

I’m so ready for more Barry-Felicity cuteness, Barry-Oliver tension, as well as jealous Oliver. Felicity is one lucky girl.
