Has Flashpoint Given Us The Path To Connor Hawke? Not So Fast…

connorhawkeOne of the big changes Flashpoint made was changing the gender of John Diggle and Lyla Michaels child. Now that there is a John Jr., then the future Green Arrow / Connor Hawke we saw in the Legends of Tomorrow episode Star City 2046 is now possibleOr is it? Marc Guggenheim was as that question by EW.com:

We go back and forth on that. That was certainly a notion of ours. It's hard for me to honestly answer the question without committing to a version of time travel, because in order for that to be the case, then Flashpoint would've had to have happened. You start to get into the very, very complicated time travel rules that, quite frankly, I as a writer don't have an appetite to answer unless we tell a story one day that deals with John Jr., and even then, I don't know if we would directly address that issue head on. Anyone who watches Legends knows that, by design, we don't spend a lot of time discussing temporal mechanics — some people like that and it annoys the hell out of other people.

Purposely vague about time-travel… I think I might fall into that "annoy the hell out of" category, but I still love the shows. Since we don't know the end result of Flashpoint nor all the different things that might have changed and we just haven't seen yet. In the comics, Connor Hawke is Oliver Queen's son… maybe that will still happen here.
