CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTHS Almost Included A Constantine/Swamp-Thing Team-Up

The cancelation of Swamp-Thing remains one of the worst crimes ever perpetrated in the realm of comic book adaptations, but Crisis nearly brought Alec Holland back for a meeting with John Constantine!

Crisis on Infinite Earths showrunner Marc Guggenheim has been talking a lot about the massive crossover event recently, but he's now revealed an absolutely heartbreaking piece of news about being denied the chance to have John Constantine and Swamp-Thing meet in the Arrowverse!

"I did want Swamp Thing to be a big part of the crossover, because - if you've got Constantine - to not have Constantine and Swamp Thing together is a missed opportunity," the executive producer reflected. "I'll just say that, for a variety of different reasons, I couldn't make that happen."

That has to be because Warner Bros. canceled the DC Universe series shortly after it premiered in May due to budgetary concerns. The beloved character from the critically acclaimed series did make a silent cameo in Crisis's closing montage (confirming that he's still out there somewhere!), but there's been no official word on future plans for Swamp-Thing on TV.

Though Guggenheim doesn't offer any specifics about not making the crossover happen in this interview, it's also possible Warner Bros. didn't want to get fans excited with a crossover like this one, especially as it's unlikely Alec Holland would suddenly start appearing on The CW's shows.
