Attending Planet Comic Con last weekend Arrow himself, Stephen Amell, confirmed that he’s currently eyeing a new movie role and is getting his inspiration from… Marvel!!!!
Yes, the actor confirmed that, while he prefers DC Comic to Marvel – “DC, of course! Marvel’s really good, though.” – he’s currently rewatching Avengers: Phase one… but as research:
“Don’t get any ideas. It isn’t for a Marvel role. I’m circling a movie – that’s not a Marvel movie – I don’t want to allude to anything or establish any rumors, but I’m circling a movie and, as homework for myself, this is one of the things I do, I’m rewatching all of Phase One of Marvel, culminating with The Avengers which I’m halfway through and excited to finish. I’ve seen it fifteen times.”
Saying as how Transformers, Aliens, Universal Monsters and many, many more are working on shared universes at the minute, Amell could be considering any sort of role. Just so long as he doesn’t got to the dark side…
