While speaking with IGN at Comic-Con International, "Arrow" star Stephen Amell, Emily Bett Rickards and EP Wendy Mericle discussed where last season left off, where next season will pick up, Thea's transformation into Speedy -- and whether there's a chance John Constantine will appear on the show.
"We really want to do it," Mericle replies when asked if Matt Ryan may bring his portrayal of the conman magician from the cancelled NBC series to the CW show. "It's something we've been talking to DC [Entertainment] about, and it's just a question of some political things, but also the actor's schedule. We're trying to work it out, but we don't know 100 percent if it's going to happen."
"Fingers crossed" Amell interjected.
"But we're really optimistic and we would love to have him" Mericle concluded.
When rumors first began circulating regarding the cancellation of "Constantine," Amell publicly offered to appear on the show's second season in a show of support for the Vertigo Comics-based series. Unfortunately for fans, that wasn;t enough to convince NBC to renew the show, though a crossover into the Arrow's realm might be a pretty decent consolation prize.
"Arrow" returns for its fourth season this fall on The CW.
