Kevin Smith Keeps Hope of DC Movie/TV Crossover Alive


Kevin Smith gives some hope that a DC TV/Movie crossover could happen

Marvel and DC are very different comic book companies. A perfect example of this is their approach to their movie and TV properties. Marvel is all connected. Everything is in the same universe, be it movies or TV. Sometimes it’s just a reference to a larger Marvel universe on shows like Daredevil and Jessica Jones. Other times, Lady Sif shows up on Agents of Shield. DC, despite having a huge TV presence spread across several networks, is keeping its TV and  movies as separate universes.

But does that mean we’ll never seen Ben Affleck’s Batman meet Stephen Amell’s Arrow or Ezra Miller’s Flash meet Grant Gustin’s Flash? While it seems somewhat unlikely, superfan and occasional movie director Kevin Smith keeps the door of possibility open, speaking of a segment that was cut from the recent Dawn of Justice TV special he hosted with Geoff Johns:

"We did a piece where we talked about — I don’t know how much I’m supposed to say because they cut it out. But the idea [came up] of, ‘Hey man, DC is known for nothing if not a multiverse,’ so at which point I was like [to Johns], ‘Could they crossover?’ And he was like, ‘Ahh.’ So doors are being left open and stuff like that."

Granted, Kevin Smith is in no position to do anything, so  him saying the door is open doesn’t necessarily mean anything and it could just be Geoff Johns not giving a definitive answer so he can keep the option available, but it’s not likely. But as Kevin Smith said, multiverse is a big part of DC. It’s a central part of The Flash. So one day we could totally see Flash teaming with Flash, or even TV Batman (presumably a grown-up Bruce Wayne from Gotham) team up with Batfleck. Not likely, but hey there’s a chance!
