After featuring several DC Comic characters on Arrow - including The Flash - producer Marc Guggenheim now wants Batman to appear on the popular series.
Guggenheim spoke about the idea during a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, "At the end of the day it'd be so awesome to have Batman on the show. That'd be really cool," he said. "I don't think that will be happening anytime soon, but you never know ... one day."
The optimistic producer went on to state how they never planned or expected to feature certain characters that eventually appeared on the show.
"One thing we're always saying ... we never expected to have had the Huntress [Jessica De Gouw], Deathstroke [Manu Bennett] or Deadshot [Michael Rowe]; we ended up with a lot more DC Comics characters becoming part of the show than we had ever planned. It wasn't initially part of the pitch or the conception of the show. Now here we are in our third season and we've Flash [Grant Gustin] and the Suicide Squad and we're going to have Katana and we have Ray Palmer [Brandon Routh], and it seems like you could field an entire show off the characters that we have introduced on Arrow."
"That's so beyond anything we expected. That's a long-winded way of saying I've learned not to expect anything or make any predictions because the reality has far exceeded any of our initial predictions or initial conceptions," he added.
Well, it'll definitely be a treat for fans to see Justice League members Arrow and Batman together on the small screen. Whether or not it actually happens, remains to be seen.
Meanwhile, Arrow season 3 returns to The CW on 21st January, 2015.
