Back in Januray 2020, the Arrowverse bid a heartbreaking farewell to Stephen Amell's Oliver Queen, as his friends and family across from CW's Arrow, had all gathered for his funeral at the Queen Mansion.
This moment - being as somber and saddening as one would expect, was actually the inauguration of a current-running Arrowverse meme created by none other than CW's The Flash star, Grant Gustin.
Many will remember the behind-the-scenes look whilst filming for that scene that was posted on Instagram, which featured the whole cast huddling around Oliver Queen's tombstone - though Gustin in particular was hilariously striking a peace sign aside Oliver Queen's tombstone, and cracking a cheeky smile.
Recently at FanX Salt Lake Pop Culture & Comic Convention 2023, Gustin appeared to talk, interact, and take pictures with his fans.
However, Instagram user @garylizaso took a different approach to meeting with the Scarlet Speedster, as he had hoped to recreate the viral meme the actor had unintentionally created 3-years ago!
What a photo! This fan certainly received exactly what he wanted aside from meeting with The Flash himself - bringing back the iconic Arrowverse meme!
What is your favorite moment from the Arrowverse?
At 11, Barry Allen's life changed completely when his mother died in a freak accident and his innocent father was convicted of her murder. Orphaned Barry later becomes Detective Joe West. Now a crime-scene investigator, his dedication to learn the truth about his mother's death drives him to follow up on every new scientific advancement and urban legend.
When his latest obsession - a particle accelerator heralded as a world-changing invention - causes an explosion, it creates a freak storm and Barry is struck by lightning. He awakes from a coma nine months later with the power of superspeed. When he learns that others who have gained powers use them for evil, he dedicates himself to protecting the innocent, while still trying to solve the older mystery.
The Arrowverse is an American superhero media franchise and shared universe that is centered on various interconnected television series based on DC Comics superhero characters, primarily airing on The CW as well as web series on CW Seed. The series were developed by Greg Berlanti, Marc Guggenheim, Andrew Kreisberg, Geoff Johns, Ali Adler, Phil Klemmer, Salim Akil, and Caroline Dries. Set in a shared fictional multiverse much like the DC Universe and DC Multiverse in comic books, it was established by crossing over common plot elements, settings, cast and characters that span six live-action television series and two animated series.
