Green Arrow has never been in any of the DC Comics movies! Can you believe that? He’s one of DC Comics’ biggest heroes and he’s never been in the movies.
There’s probably a good reason for that though. It might have something to do with the fact that he’s a bit too much like Batman in the sense that Oliver Queen is a rich guy to wears a mask and takes out bad guys at night.
Batman kind of has the market cornered as far as that’s concerned.
However, Green Arrow’s made a pretty big splash in the TV world on The CW, yet that is soon all coming to an end, which is really sad, but probably about time.
That said, there might be life in Green Arrow yet, as it’s been reported by We Got This Covered that they’d heard from their sources DC Comics and Warner Bros. Pictures are looking to bring Oliver Queen into the DCEU.
Green Arrow would work in the DCEU
Stephen Amell’s been playing the character on the small screen, but I’m pretty sure they’ll do what they did with The Flash as recast the role for the movies.
The CW’s Flash TV show has Grant Gustin playing the scarlet speedster and Ezra Miller plays him in the DCEU.
I reckon that if Oliver Queen (a.k.a. Green Arrow) were to come to the DCEU, they would recast him as Amell seems to want to leave the character behind anyway.
Bringing him in the DCEU would make sense, especially since it seems as though they’re not going to be having Ben Affleck’s Batman in the movies anymore, and it’s looking like Robert Pattinson’s Batman will be operating aside of the main DC Comics movies.
