So while we already know it’s not going to happen that Stephen Amell, TV’s Arrow, will appear in the DC Cinematic Universe, it looks like the Green Arrow himself might not.

Speaking to Larry King, Amell was asked if he saw himself in a movie version of Green Arrow and the two chatted about how Ezra Miller was set to play Flash in the movies rather that TV star Grand Gustin, and Amell stated that he knew he’d not be playing the role not he big screen: “No, the cinematic universe and the television universe are separate,” the actor said.

Asked if it bugged him that he’d not be playing Green Arrow on the big screen, Amell said that it looks like Green Arrow isn’t even headed for the big screen, even in the Batman V Superman universe: “I’ve spoken with people within DC and they’ve said there’s no plan to bring the Green Arrow character to the cinematic universe, but things change.”

We find it surprising that there’s no plans to bring Green Arrow to the big screen in any form, and, as Amell says, we could see this changing under the guidance of Geoff Johns who foresees a more optimistic future for the cinematic universe… but for now, the Arrow is a TV Only guy.
