    The name that got my attention was Matt Ryan. Of course if you're going to bring Lucifer into crossover, he'll have to have a scene with Constantine. :)

    Could think of several possible scenes with those two - none of which would suitable for a tv show :evil:

    I never considered Lucifer showing up, since his show isn't really superhero-y. That said, as someone who enjoys that show, I really hope he does show up (and he needs to at least exchange some dialog with Constantine).

    I also really hope that Knox form the 89 Batman movie shows up, that would be a neat cameo.

    Well, when it comes to other Lex Luthors, Clancy brown has appeared in the Arrowverse before (as general Eiling). Just get him a bald cap, and he wouldn't be an out of place older Lex. Since we're already getting Kevin Conroy as Bruce Wayne its not impossible, especially since we know that Rosenbaum isn't showing up.

    A Lucifer/Constantine crossover would raise all sorts of existential questions, since the two shows depicted the nature of angels in incompatible ways. In Constantine, angels were undetectable to non-magical humans unless they possessed someone, and were strictly forbidden by God from interfering directly in human affairs; also, regular angels had white wings and fallen angels had black wings. In Lucifer, angels can interact freely with humans and are often sent by God to deliberately intervene in their affairs, and angels' wing color has no connection to whether they're fallen or not (with the fallen Lucifer having white wings and the respectable Amenadiel having black wings). Plus Constantine's Lucifer was the diametric opposite of Ellis's version, a being that actively sought to corrupt humans and nurture their evil, rather than punishing it.

    Now, a lot of differences between character portrayals can be justified as differences in their respective timelines. But this is about God, who supposedly transcends all universes. So shouldn't the rules for God and angels be the same in all universes? Do the two have different Gods? Or maybe God is just running different experiments in the different universes, testing out different angel rules to see how they work out. But then, are there two Lucifers? Or was the one in Constantine an impostor/mistaken identity?

    In the lap of squalor I assure you.
    Each Earth has it's own god, who is trying to stand out as an individual, by establishing different rules.

    If I was running Crisis I'd round up every DC related costume in storage, past and present and stick extras in them as background for any group scenes and wideshots.

    They actually sort of did something like that in the opening scene of Elseworlds.

    I'd be fine if they just bring Krypto over in case the human actors are unavailable in time... :D

    The rumour I've seen on You Tube - so take it with a huge grain of salt is it's just a couple of Titans in their HQ glancing up at the sky and seeing that the sky has turned red. That same rumour has it that Burt Ward does indeed reside on Earth 66 but he's playing himself and remarks upon seeing the sky 'Holy Crimson Skies!' As I said huge grain of salt, this guy's hit and miss with the rumours

    That's pretty much the kind of thing I've been expecting from most of these appearances.
    I really hope this is true, even just a quick cameo is enough for me. So if we get the Titans, I wonder if there's any chance of characters from Doom Patrol or the DCU Swamp Thing?

    As fun as that would be, I doubt it.

    ^ Why would a Titans cameo automatically trigger cameos from Doom Patrol and Swamp Thing? The three series have no connection to each other.

    Also, I doubt that this Titans rumor is true anyway.

    Because they are all DC Universe shows?

    That doesn't mean anything.

    @JD framed it in the form of a question not a statement of fact.
    You asked for a connection and one was given.

    At this rate, I'm starting to wonder what is the plot/cameos ratio going to be :)
