Default Why the Flash movie could fix the DCEU

Enticing Arrowverse viewers

The Arrowverse is a remarkable accomplishment. After all, it must have been no easy feat to build a shared universe of superhero characters on the small screen, yet that's exactly what DC managed to create with shows like Arrow, Supergirl, and Legends of Tomorrow. Out of these shows, the one that remains consistently the most popular is The Flash, both in terms of critics' reviews and audience ratings.

Since the DCEU began, none of the key Arrowverse heroes have played an important role on the big screen, but that's set to change now that the Scarlet Speedster is ready to star in his own film. While there might be some contention between fans regarding which version of the Flash is best, it's likely that the character's popularity on TV will give him a boost in cinemas.

Of course, there must be a number of Arrowverse fans who already enjoy the DCEU franchise too, but a Flash movie might be the catalyst that more reluctant audiences need to finally dive headfirst from the shows and into the films. Assuming that the movie won't be too dark, then this could also be the perfect opportunity to broaden the age range of DCEU fans the Arrowverse is generally more family-friendly than the films.

A bridge between worlds

At the center of The Flash TV show and the Arrowverse at large lies the concept of a "multiverse" which connects multiple dimensions together, each differing in slightly different ways. Supergirl was connected to the other Arrowverse shows when it was revealed that she lived in a parallel dimension that could be accessed via portals. Given this line of thinking, it's entirely possible that The Flash movie could connect the DCEU to the Arrowverse and reveal that they all co-exist in the same multiverse too. This reveal would most likely take place in The Flash movie, because his specific abilities allow him to traverse different dimensions and such a move could help connect the Arrowverse fanbase with DCEU audiences even further.

However, there are two issues with this idea. First of all, there's no guarantee that linking the DCEU and the Arrowverse would even be a good thing. Their tones differ wildly, and the budgetary requirements would be astronomical. More importantly, it seems doubtful that such a move could ever even happen due to logistics and legal wranglings. The best we could probably hope for is a cameo appearance from Arrowverse stars like Stephen Amell or Grant Gustin while the DCEU version of the Flash travels through the multiverse in his own solo film. Such a move would undoubtedly be a huge deal for fans of both franchises and could even give DC an upper hand over Marvel, which has struggled to connect its movies and shows.
