Both characters are from DC Comics, but unlike most cross-overs of this nature, there are no real indications that Constantine lives in the same universe as Oliver Queen. Regardless, the powers that be have been working on this crossover for some time, and since Constantine doesn’t have another home, fans will be happy to see him back onscreen again.
Arrow returns Wednesday, Oct. 7 at 8 p.m. ET on The CW.
