Amell revealed this during an interview with Den Of Geek.
“What means a great deal to me is we did get to control the ending,” Amell said of Arrow’s final episode.
“That happens so rarely. To have that conversation with Greg Berlanti during the sixth season, and to decide that seven and then a truncated version of the eighth season would wrap up the story, it’s just such a blessing, because we got to do it the right way. We got to say goodbye to people in the right way. In my opinion, the way it should end for any superhero without superpowers is in the ground. Although I think Oliver just turned into energy. So you know, never say never.”
Should Stephen Amell return as Green Arrow in the Arrowverse?
Amell was then asked whether he’d be open to returning as Green Arrow in the Arrowverse, to which Amell replied: “Oh, sure.”
He continued: “I owe so much to the people of DC, The CW, and Warner Bros. Television. I love the character so much and only love it more now that it’s coming up on two years since we wrapped the show….But having a little space now, I saw that I miss it. I do look back very, very, very fondly on it….Listen, I’m the namesake.”
Amell added: “So if I can ever be of any help, if I can be of service to the Arrowverse in any way, shape or form, or better still take it to a new place, which I think would be the more interesting route to go, be that in a limited capacity or on a different platform, maybe one where we could show blood, that’d be really cool.”
