20 DC Heroes That Won’t Be Appearing On The Arrowverse Any Time Soon
Black Lightning has his own CW television show, and the show has mentioned Arrowverse characters Vixen and Supergirl on more than one occasion, but Black Lightning executive producer Salim Akil told Entertainment Weekly in no uncertain terms that Black Lightning doesn’t even exist in the same ~universe~ as the CW’s other super shows. In a weirdly defensive turn of phrase, Salim said the only world in which the Arrowverse’s characters would link up with theirs is if they come to visit the Black Lightning universe. Gee, someone sounds bitter.
[UPDATE: This one might be happening, actually, and our interest is piqued. Black Lightning is set to appear on the next annual Arrowverse crossover event. Who had a change of heart, we wonder.]
