The recently aired Crisis on Earth-X crossover made us realize how the Arrowverse has become highly crowded with superheroes, but, you would be surprised to know that Booster Gold and Blue Beetle had also almost got added to the mix.
Renowned heroes such as Elongated Man and The Ray recently made their way into The CW’s Arrowverse shows and Marc Guggenheim elaborated about the involvement of two other superheroes during a panel session at ACE Comic-Con, as revealed by comicbook.com “I will say, both those characters [Booster Gold and Blue Beetle] are characters we’ve talked about,” Guggenheim revealed. “Originally Ray Palmer, who was introduced on Arrow, he was supposed to be Ted Kord, and we went another way.”
“So, you know, Booster and Blue Beetle, all the ‘B’ characters really, we’re always talking about but nothing I can announce or speak to at the moment,” the executive producer further added. It is pertinent to remember that Ted Kord and Kord industries have been mentioned on Arrow earlier. Therefore, it is clear that they exist on Earth-1, it is only a matter of time before they will be seen on the show.
The Stephen Amell starrer, Arrow (currently not featuring the Green Arrow) airs Thursdays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on The CW. The other stars of the show are Emily Bett Rickards, David Ramsey, Willa Holland, etc.
