Friday the 13th
Speaking with Comic Book, four-time Jason Voorhees actor Kane Hodder stated he hopes to play the character one more time when the franchise’s legal issues ultimately resolve.
I just think that when they do do a 13th one, it certainly couldn’t hurt to bring me back as Jason, unless it’s in 20 years, maybe. But it certainly couldn’t hurt the success of the movie, I don’t think, having the only person that’s played the role more than once to come back for the final one. I think that part would be interesting. But I’d like to see, if, in fact, they say this is the final one, I’d like to see some of the characters that survived come back, like Corey Feldman’s character (Tommy Jarvis), and somehow written into the story why they’re back. It could be an interesting storyline, having people that survived Jason come back. ‘Oh, I remember that girl’ or, ‘I remember that guy from previous movies and they never got killed.’ I think it could be an interesting storyline. So many lifetime horror fans that have watched every Friday movie, I think it’d be fun for them to see faces they recognize. I really think it’d be an interesting way to bring the horror fans some kind of closure with this series to have me come back one more time and people that survived.

Even after Crisis, the fallout from it continues to build and screw with Team Flash. In the first pre-Crisis episodes, as the big bad is getting introduced, like we always do – we will see a relationship of what’s coming in Crisis with what’s happening to Barry with what’s happening to the new big bad.
