An intriguing theory explains how Arrow star Stephen Amell could become villain Red Death on The Flash.
Arrow is currently in its seventh season and it has officially been announced that the upcoming eighth season will be the final season. For now, The Flash is set to continue on after its current fifth season and it has already teased an awesome new baddie for The Flash (Grant Gustin) to battle, Red Death.
The CW’s Arrowverse recently faced its biggest reality-altering event yet with last year’s Elseworlds, which set up this year’s holiday season Arrowverse event, an adaptation of the comic book Crisis on Infinite Earths. Along the way, the Scarlet Speedster will also have to face off against one of his most powerful foes yet.
A new theory from Reddit user Zoom explains how Arrow star Stephen Amell could take on the mantle of Red Death when the villain finally shows up on The Flash. Check out the intriguing new theory in the post below.
In the comics, Red Death is a villain whose true identity is Bruce Wayne. After Earth-52 Batman defeats The Flash and straps him to the front of his Batmobile, the Caped Crusader drives them both into the Speed Force like a twisted version of Back to the Future. After this, the two fuse together to become one person, Red Death. Batman did this because The Flash previously refused him access to the Speed Force.
Because The CW’s Arrowverse has featured Bruce Wayne/Batman by name only, the theory above tries to find a way that Red Death could fit into the show’s current timeline. There could be a number of ways for the series to create a new origin for the villain but this theory certainly finds a way to make it tie into the whole Arrowverse in a very emotional way, with its inaugural hero becoming its newest foe.

Suicide Squad Characters That Can Appear In The James Gunn Sequel
James Gunn is directing The Suicide Squad for Warner Bros. but that comes at a cost.
When the first Suicide Squad was about to hit theaters DC fans were completely ecstatic. The trailers looked great and the feel of the movie was much different than the darkness that preceded it in Man of Steel and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. This movie was expected to be one of DC’s biggest hits and it turned out to be one of the biggest let-downs of all time.
Suicide Squad was bad and its reviews reflected that. It was one of the only movies I’ve ever been upset at and it made me want to leave the theater. A sequel was announced because the film did well at the box office, going through a number of drafts until James Gunn was brought on to write it. With James Gunn now officially set to direct The Suicide Squad, it looks like the film will be a bit of a soft reboot.
Last night was a bit of a DC maelstrom of news. We got the release dates and official titles of Matt Reeves’ The Batman and James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad. Both movies will be hitting theaters in Summer 2021. Throughout all of the chaos a small tidbit surfaced about The Suicide Squad: the James Gunn-directed film will be some sort of relaunch with new characters and actors. Here are the characters I think James Gunn should introduce in his Suicide Squad movie. Hit Next to view all of my choices.
