Green Lantern & Justice League Coming To Arrow Teases Stephen Amell
Stephen Amell attended the recent Fan Expo Canada 2014 in his hometown of Toronto recently where he discussed the upcoming Season 3 of Arrow as well as participating in a fan QnA.
The discussion turned to the topic of the DC Cinematic Universe with the question of Amell participating in any of the movies or Batman Vs. Superman.
As the actor stated previously, Arrow and The Flash are a part of their own universe and separate from what WB is doing with the films. Stephen Amell responds by stating they are going to have their own Justice League (via CBR).
We are creating a Justice League on TV for us. I don't think there is a logistical reality to us participating in the feature side. That being said, I never wanted to have to feel like the show was justified, just because we participated in the movie. I don't think my character would participate on the cinematic side. What's that saying? Is it six seasons and a movie? Our show right now has me, Arsenal, Flash. There's going to be Firestorm and Atom. The Justice League elements of it are very present on our shows ['Arrow' and 'The Flash'] already."
One member of the Justice League that Stephen Amell wants, and it's a character teased both in Arrow and the upcoming season premiere of The Flash, is Green Lantern.
"Now, boy we've referenced Ferris Air a lot. It would be really cool to have Green Lantern. Hopefully, that happens. I have no inside information, unless I do."
I've been told by someone who works at Warner Bros. that Green Lantern is going to be introduced into the Arrow and Flash universe, and that there are plans for a Flash and Green Lantern TV movie. It was previously rumored that a Flash and Green Lantern team-up were a part of the recently announced DC movie release dates, but the source at WB says it's actually for a TV movie.
Arrow Season 3 premiers Wednesday, October 8th at 8pm ET on the CW.
Season 3 synopsis:
In the aftermath of this victory, Season Three opens with Arrow now a hero to the citizensof Starling.
