DC's slate of Arrowverse shows is ever-expanding, and so is the list of actors who almost snagged a role. Which Arrowverse superheroes were almost played by someone else?
In Arrow: The Brave and the Bold (2014), when Oliver is introducing Barry Allen to Captain Lance, Lance mistakes his name as Bart Allen. In the comics, Bart Allen is Barry's grandson, who is the sidekick of the second Flash and then eventually becomes the Flash himself.
You know who he is under that hood, don't you?
Slade Wilson: I know exactly who he is. He's my friend.
Sebastian Blood: That's why you don't want him dead.
Slade Wilson: Death would be a release from this life, and his sentence has yet to be carried out.
