Fans of The CW’s Arrowverse know that crossovers are kind of their thing. Now, the ladies of the Arrowverse are calling for an all-girl crossover!
In a recent interview, the stars of ‘Legends of Tomorrow’ Tala Ashe, Maisie Richardson-Sellers, and Caity Lotz, Juliana Harkavy from ‘Arrow,’ and ‘The Flash’s’ Candice Patton said they are ready to tackle their own badass lady crossover! Ashe said:
“On our own show, all of us separately have said to the writers, ‘Let’s have a girls’ episode,'” Not just for the sake of having a girls’ night, but realizing that it’s kind of rare, actually, to be in a scene where it’s just women. What is that conversation between five [superhero] women when it’s not about a man? That would be exciting to me, so yeah, let’s freaking crossover it up!”
There have been crossover moments featuring the women of the Arrowverse before, on the last season of ‘The Flash,’ Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) from ‘Arrow’ celebrated Iris’s (Patton) bachelorette party. However, there’s never been a scene with just the women where they don’t even mention the men. And the girls think it’s time. Lotz mentioned how fun an all-girl crossover would be, saying:
“I mean, we’re not trying to shut out men or be anti-men. Would that be fun? Yes, that would be really fun!”
Patton mentioned that she’s glad to see more female characters coming to ‘The Flash,’ as all the girls agreed that they were ready for more women to work with on set. Patton said:
“For so long our cast was just two women, [myself and Danielle Panabaker]. My question was always like, ‘When are we getting more women?” We’d go through another season and we’d add a male. And then the next season, we’d add another male. We’re going into Season 5, we just added two women of color [Jessica Parker Kennedy and Danielle Nicolet] on our show as series regulars, bringing our number of female regulars on the show up to four, which is amazing. I mean, if you would have said that to my 14-year-old self, there’s no way I would have believed you.”
Harkavy mentions that she is ready for more scenes with the women kicking some serious butt. She said:
“Emily [Bett Rickards] and I asked Beth [Schwartz, new Arrow showrunner] to have more scenes together this year. I love working with the women. My favorite thing is to kick butt with other women on our show.”
And while there have been no confirmed plans for such a crossover yet, Ruby Rose is joining the Arrowverse as Batwoman just in time for the planned multi-show crossover event this fall! Who run the world? Girls!
