“Back in season 8, we arrange ‘The Blackest Night’ storyline with Deathstorm. When Deathstorm was defeated, the emotional vibrations went all the best way again to the Netherverse and one other dimension to Nekron, who’s proper out of the comedian books. I needed to have one ultimate, large, large epic crossover, getting all people — in case you’re on a present or not — again collectively for that storyline. What that will have allowed me to do is deliver again characters which are lifeless,” Wallace defined throughout an interview with EW. And Wallace was considering large, with a crossover that will’ve introduced collectively characters from The Flash, Superman & Lois, DC’s Titans, and DC’s Stargirl. “The thought was to get all of them collectively to cease Nekron and all his Black Lanterns, which I’m positive Geoff Johns would’ve beloved as a result of it is his creation,” Wallace added.

And in case you thought that will’ve been large, Wallace was additionally contemplating making a run at “The Forever War” if there was a tenth season. “That’s considered one of these loopy issues that I’ve been hinting at, which could be very tied in with the Chronarch. We’ve been hinting that the Chronarch could be again ultimately, as early as season 7 when Abra Kadabra [David Dastmalchian] mentions to Barry, ‘The Chronarch is coming and goes to mess up your life.’ It has to do with Barry and Iris as a result of eternity is falling aside, and endlessly is getting taken away. That would’ve kicked off season 10 with a few particular visitor stars that we might have seen.”
