Stephen Amell Hoping To Bring His Green Arrow To The Justice League Movie
Warner Brothers has been looking at doing Justice League for a long time. Ever since their failed attempt at the movie back in 2008, mixed with Marvel’s success in bringing The Avengers to the big screen, WB has been looking at every possibility to catch up.
They had a flash of hope with they released Man Of Steel about a month ago. The film has broken box office records for June and is still going strong. With a major player of the Justice League having a strong showing at the box office, things are looking up for a possible Justice League movie.
One suggestion to help establish continuity for the team up movie is to use CW’s hit TV show based on Green Arrow (simply titled Arrow) in the movie. This idea has show star Stephen Amell excited. He told Scifi Now that he would love to do the Justice League movie as Green Arrow, and even (jokingly) offer to sweep the floors as well.
Amell sees his Arrow character much like Iron Man was to The Avengers saying, “I think that Green Arrow has an opportunity to mature in much the same way Iron Man did in the Marvel universe. He wasn’t necessarily a top level character, but because they made an Iron Man movie and it was successful, it vaulted him up and now he anchors the Avengers.” He also went on to say that due to the popularity of archery now, he hopes that, “he can settle into a firm rotating member of the DC Justice League of America.”
Whether or not WB chooses to do this or not is another story. As a matter of fact, it seems highly unlikely. While it could be a wise move, DC will probably look to bring in the major players of the DC Universe and save Green Arrow for another time. Also, based on what Man Of Steel writer David Goyer says WB’s plans are, it would appear Justice League will come and they will spin solo movies out of that.
