With everyone talking about Batman Vs Superman, The Justice League and Arrow, one of TV’s biggest shows right now, it was only a matter of time when the principals started to get a little chatty… after all, the fans have questions.
Arrow star Stephen Amell has been interviewed by Fandango and they asked if we’ll see him in the Justice League at some point in the future: “All we have to do for something like that to happen, or even be a possibility, is continue to take care of business with our show and then we put ourselves in a position – but the important thing is our show. I have had discussions, but I think the gestation process for this project is a lot slower than most people think. I mean, they haven’t even shot the next one [Batman vs. Superman]. They haven’t even shot a frame of the movie before the movie everyone thinks is the Justice League movie!”
Interestingly, after the interview went live, Amell took to his Facebook page, telling fans not to get excited yet: “When I do press, I try and be open, honest and thoughtful. That being said… I find it incredibly discouraging to see a headline like the ones I’ve been seeing this morning. Headlines that aren’t just a stretch, they’re totally fabricated. At no point, have I had ‘studio level’ discussions about any feature films at Warner Bros.
In this particular instance, when I read articles that take a pretty straightforward answer and slap a title on it that has little to no correlation to what I’ve actually said, it makes it seem as though I’m disrespecting my current position. Which is bulls–t. And why would I do that? I mean… I’m not the smartest dude in the world. (After all… I picked a career in acting.) But would I really just casually subvert a process cloaked in secrecy? A process – by the way – being run by the company who currently employs me. C’MON!
We’re making a kick ass show. We will continue to make a kick ass show. And I will continue to interact and provide interesting content for our fans. Because I love our fans. If every once and a while, some dickweed wants to pull a headline out of thin air to generate page views, then that’s the price we pay.”
Meanwhile, Wonder Woman herself, Gal Gadot, was on Israeli chat show Good Evening With Gai Pines during the week and while chatting about the role – which will earn her about $300,000 – she confirmed that she has signed on for three movies at this point and will begin filming in May. Our guess is Batman Vs Superman, Justice League and a standalone Wonder Woman movie.
What do you all think? Are we ready for a Wonder Woman movie? Do we want to see Oliver/Arrow in the Justice League cinematic universe? Let us know in the usual ways…
