Stephen Amell Says Cool Your Jets About Those JUSTICE LEAGUE Rumors
Earlier today stories starting circulating that Arrow star Stephen Amell had ‘studio level‘ talks about being a part of the Batman vs. Superman and/or the Justice League movie. The news came from a Fandango article where the actor was talking about the show and its future. We went with a much more evenhanded title, which you can see along with the full report by clicking here, but the actor has taken to his Facebook page this evening to blast all of these “totally fabricated” reports that he has been in talks with Warner Bros. top brass.
Amell wrote a lengthy message taking several sites to task for blowing the news out of proportion, which you can read in its entirety below. As the actor states, the part about ‘studio level‘ discussions isn’t even a quote form him. It was added by Fandango to expand and connect things in between sentences he actually said. While Amell may well have had some sort of discussion about the future of the DC cinematic and television universes since he is a key member of the TV side of things, I seriously doubt he will actually make the jump to the big screen. Both Oliver Queen and Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) would be harder to fit into the movie world with actors like Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, and the recently announced Gal Gadot. TV and movies are two entirely different animals and they don’t usually interact well.
Even Arrow‘s executive producer said there is no ongoing discussions to connect the two DC branches, so any talk at this time is incredibly premature considering Warner Bros. has gone back to the drawing board to rework some Batman vs. Superman things. Plus Amell has never been shy when talking about his love of DC characters and how excited he is at the prospect of a Justice League movie. If there were any smoke to this fire, I’d think it’s safe to say he’d be the first one teasing fans about what’s in store. What do you think about the actor’s comments? Do you think Arrow could tie into the movie side of things?
