One Classic DC Actress Is Down To Appear In Arrow And The Flash's TV Universe

The CW's current DC Comics universe has a lot to celebrate, and somewhere near the top of that list is how well the multiple shows have incorporated the bevy of memorable actors and actresses from past DC projects. One of the crown jewels has voiced her willingness to return to comic book fiction, as the Superman franchise's Margot Kidder is down for a trip to one of the super-shows in the future. Here's how she put it when asked.

Yeah, sure. Depending on the script or what they wanted me to do. I am 67, I am an old broad now! So I look back at this with much more amusement than I did. I don't have a career I need to worry about protecting. My life has nothing to do with movies anymore. I live in a little town in Montana and basically do political activism. So I guess it would be fun to fly-in and do a couple of days work.

Not exactly the gung-ho "let's get on a plane right now and do this shit" response that gets gets the blood flowing, but then again, I don't know how gung-ho a 67-year-old is supposed to sound about doing comic book TV. It's safe to say she's interested in appearing in at least one episode that doesn't involving extensive stunts and physical duress. But on which series would she fit best?

Yeah, it's kind of a no-brainer to want her to show up on Supergirl in Season 2, especially since Superman is going to be a real character this year. No one would expect her to reprise her Lois Lane role - though that would perhaps be the coolest thing that's ever happened ever ever - but having her interact with Lucy and/or Sam Lane, Lois' sister and father, would intrigue. Or even if Margot Kidder and former Wonder Woman Lynda Carter had a simple scene together, that would be a hell of a fan-pleasing moment.

Then again, Margot Kidder would fit right in with the happy vibes that are usually flowing through The Flash. The old Superman movies dealt more with hope and inspiration than destruction, so she could carry that on through to Central City for Season 3. The Flash has also been solid about using former DC actors, giving not only former Flash star John Wesley Shipp a big and expansive role, but also Mark Hamill more than one chance to reprise his former Trickster role. Mrs. Garrick, anyone?

Or if the actress showed up on Legends of Tomorrow Season 2, she could perhaps share a scene with former Superman Brandon Routh. Though she also discussed with HeyUGuys the not so overwhelmingly positive about views she has about the latter pair of Superman films, so maybe she'd want to skip Superman stuff altogether. That leaves us with Arrow Season 5. Maybe something with John Barrowman? Everything's better with Barrowman involved.

Arrow will return to The CW for Season 5 on Wednesday, October 5, with The Flash zipping into Season 3 on Tuesday, October 4. Legends of Tomorrow will be just in time for its Season 2 opener on Thursday, October 13, while Supergirl will make its CW debut with Season 2 on Monday, October 9. All shows start at 8 p.m. ET.
