The DC television and film universes are yet to crossover, but there are so many people who want to see Green Arrow be the one to do this.
Stephen Amell had recently revealed his stance on this subject at Heroes & Villains Fan Fest San Jose. He had been asked if he wants to be brought into DC’s cinematic universe for a Justice League sequel.
“These are things that I think people think that we think about, but I mean, sure, sure,” Amell said. “I’m so happy with my role within the DC universe, and whether that is the Arrowverse, the DCEU, the DMV, the BLT, I could, you know what, honestly, would I like to be in a sequel to the Justice League movie? Well yeah, I’d like hanging out with Jason Momoa, so sure! But, you want to cast anyone to play Green Arrow in the next version…don’t care. It’s all good, doesn’t bother me. I wish nothing but success for any project with DC on its name.”
The reworking of DCU resulted in many comparisons to CW’s television universe, one that draws positive reviews while the movies are divisive. Amell is not the only one that fans want in the movies, as there was a backlash after Warner Bros. cast Ezra Miller (Flash) without having Grant Gustin read for the part.
This then subsided, and after seeing Justice League, it seemed like WB did make a good choice.
If Green Arrow were to debut in a DC movie though, the backlash would be more substantial, as no one has more clout with fans than Amell. His show kicked off the Berlanti-verse as it is known in a few circles, and there are many fans who want to see his Oliver Queen interact with Ben Affleck, Ray Fisher, Ezra Miller, Gal Gadot, Jason Momoa, and Henry Cavill.
