Question Arrow or the Flash?!? GL cameo...

With not just one, but BOTH of his best friends having their own tv shows... which one will Hal Jordan show up in? Could be out of costume, in a Ferris Air commercial on tv before Channel 52 News, anything. I just think with the possibility of a GL/Flash movie that Hal is bound to show up in one or both of the shows. It'd be f'ing sweet if it was in the Arrow/Flash crossover...

Since nobody has an answer, which one would you rather have Hal show up in and in what context? Should he already have his ring, hint he's been in space, or just try to get in Felicity's pants since Ollie apparently lost his little arrow [cause I'd have already married that gorgeous woman]? I know I wanna see him show up somewhere, it'd be better for GL if he showed up on Arrow first since it's obviously gonna be the more popular of the two. And with the Flash, I just don't wanna see it get the 'too many guest stars syndrome' as it appears to already be doing. Vibe, Killer Frost, AND Firestorm have been cast and we haven't even got to the premiere episode on tv just yet.

Best of both worlds: Hal shows up as a pilot on Arrow, gets the ring, then appears in a big episode of the Flash as GL.

I think it's more likely to be Flash as it's less grounded than Arrow plus it could probably be a nice tester for the 2017 film, although to be honest I doubt he'll show up in more than an appearance as Hal Jordan. No GL.

Yeah I bet Hal will eventually show up in either, or maybe even both shows. Especially if DC decided to go with John Stewart as the GL for the JL movie (which I hope they don't) I can see them bringing Hal to the small screen. Though I agree with Deadpool that it probably will just be regular Hal Jordan and not him as Green Lantern, though I bet he'll be wearing the ring. But who knows? We'll just have to wait and see. As for the casting, it's very unoriginal but when the CW finally decides to end Supernatural, they should get Jensen Ackles to play Hal. Robbie Amell's show The Tomorrow People got cancelled and now he's going to play Firestorm so the same situation could happen with Ackels.

Don't remind me Supernatural's ending.

Personally I think Ackles is better suited for Batman and would've been my first choice for the role, he has the gruff voice, the chin and the look along with the chops for the role.

I'd prefer neither, as it'd just end up being cheesy anyway. Save him for a movie reboot.

Yeah, neither of those shows would have the budget to do GL justice, so save it for the reboot and do it right.

To be honest despite us being told the two universes will remain separate, I'm still hoping that they will change their minds or are just lying right now. I see no point of two universes on at the same time.

Mind you can't disagree with Karl Urban as Batman. That'd be great! My second choice after Jensen Ackles.

i think its smart to keep them seperate because look at aos. that show sucks period . marvel tried connecting the mcu to that show and it was a disaster. dc cant afford to gamble by connecting there tv universe to there movie universe.

AOS would have sucked whether it was connected or not, the connection with the MCU has nothing to do with it's poor quality, the dull characters, cheesy scripts & plots, bad choices,poor execution and Joss Whedon were what made the show bad, not it's connection to MCU.

actually it does. a lot of people expected like hawkeye or black widow to just appear on the show. i mean oviously we will never see rdj as iron man on tv dude is pretty greedy when it comes to money 100 million for 2 movies? fuck that. i like rdj but to ask for that kind of money is greedy expecially when marvel never wanted him in the first place but john faveru changed that. hell they have anthoney hopkins who in my eyes is a true acting legend and he dosent complain about his pay. as good as rdj is he aint no hopkins so he really shouldnt be holding out for more money. dude should be grateful

People hoping and expecting Black Widdow or Hawkeye appear o the show doesn't make it bad, it just makes it slightly more disappointing for those people expecting them but it doesn't make the show bad, the reasons I stated above make it bad.

i think people just assumed since marvel connects everything they expected to see specific heros. i think and this is just a shot in the dark if marvel dosent announce a black panther movie for one of those dates till 2019 i say use him on agents of shield with no connection whatsoever in the mcu introduce wakanda vibranium as a plot device to have coulson and company go there. i mean why let that charachter just sit in there back pocket and waste away? if successful it could possibily spin off into its own show like the flash did from arrow . maybe i just think to much of ways to grow something new. sometimes its good sometimes its unhealthy but they can do so much with so many charachters it dosent have to connect at all to the current mcu. thats why i think a movie like gotg can be its own thing and not tie into avengers. have gotg be the catalyist to open the doors to other cosmic heros like mrs marvel captain mar'vell hell they can even do a thanos rising movie if they wanted to

A Black Panther show would be cool and probably work a lot better than a film actually. However Marvel are pretty much fully saturated with MCU shows for now with AOS, Agent Carter, Daredevil and the other Defender based shows. Marvel have too much on their hands.

But either way I can't see linking film and show universes being harmful to DC, if anything the shows so far have been more successful than the films, with Arrow receiving higher buzz than Man of Steel.

Well can you really see them cancelling them then making Black Panther? Personally I'm not so sure about Jessica Jones, I think that might suffer a bit but I have faith in Daredevil at least. Personally I'd have sooner have a continuing Daredevil show but whatever, I don't work at Marvel.

who said anything about cancelling? if i remember correctly i believe daredevil is going to have 13? episodes and depending how that does than we may get to see those other 3 shows. i mean if dd ends up tanking i really do believe that will get those other 3 cancelled

^This. I don't watch the TV shows. If they put GL in one of them, I'd have to watch that episode without the background of the previous episodes. I'd rather wait for his big screen return.

DC's TV universe might well end up being superior to its movie universe. That supposed DC slate of movies that WB has is subject to change, too. GL coming to Arrow and/or Flash is more likely than a GL movie reboot right now.

I would prefer that Hal stay off the shows since Green Lantern is better suited for movies, BUT I'll play...

Between the two shows, I think it'd be more interesting for Hal to appear on "Arrow" because I see more potential for conflict. The conflict between Hal and Ollie would be different than the comics though since the Ollie on "Arrow" is very different than the "Hard Traveling Heroes" Ollie. Hal would be Hal - not Green Lantern, but he's a fearless test pilot and still a hero before he ever became a GL, although perhaps a little less focused. I see their dynamic similar to Hal/Batman since Ollie is really more Batman than Green Arrow on the tv show. Hal would be fearless and headstrong, Ollie would be the brooding planner. Hal would be light-hearted and at ease with himself, Ollie would be angsty and conflicted. Oil and water, but both effective. Perhaps Hal could help Ollie lighten up a bit and rely more on instinct rather than planning. It could also help Ollie to feel less burdened to know there are good men out there who can answer the call, rather than thinking that The Arrow (or team Arrow) needs to do it all.

That's an interesting idea actually. Though in Arrow I see hints that Ollie may be slowly turning into the Green Arrow we know in the comics. But Hal could maybe speed up that transformation, like Barry Allan gave Arrow his mask.
