Double Arrow Crossover? What could this Flash tidbit mean?

If you haven’t seen the latest Flash episode you might want to look away now…

…still with us? Good. Enter Zoom was another action packed episode, it also revealed via Earth-2 flashback a potential future storyline.

We see Wells in the alternative timeline, however we also see news footage telling us that Earth-2 Oliver Queen is dead and the identity of their vigilante has been revealed to be none other than hisdad…ROBERT QUEEN!

So with the revelation that the Green Arrow in the alternate universe is someone else, was it just a throwaway easter egg or will this have bigger implications for a crossover?

It would certainly be the perfect chance to introduce alternative father and son in the upcoming Flash/Arrow episode and would lay further groundwork to the Flashpoint Paradox storyline, in which Batman is revealed to be Thomas Wayne, the father of Bruce.

However would it be too much of a coincidence for Arrow to have so much in common with Batman? It’s certainly an interesting titbit, though it’s doubtful we’ll ever see the two versions of Green Arrow fighting together.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
