Well, there is no words to describe how often we’ve completely nerded out over Legends of Tomorrow, but this may be the biggest one yet…
We reported recently that Arrow and Flash would not be appearing in future episodes of DC’s Legends of Tomorrow and now it seems that wasn’t strictly true as Stephen Amell will be in the sixth episode… although, it’s nothing like the Arrow we know.
We will meet Oliver Queen in 2046, as an old vigilante and not just that, but in a beautiful nod to fans of The Dark Knight Returns – and comic fans in general – he will finally have the traditional Green Arrow goatee… and a missing left arm.
Seriously… how awesome in that?!
Conor Hawke will also feature – in the comics he is Oliver’s son and the second Green Arrow!
Executive Producer Marc Guggenheim said: “Every once in a while we do an episode where the 10-year-old me has to pinch himself!
“We’re not only introducing our version of Conor Hawke to our universe, we’re going to meet the 2046 version of Oliver Queen and Stephen Amell is going to be reprising his role from Arrow!
“As an added bonus to comic book fans, Oliver is missing his left arm and will be sporting a goatee, in a nod to the character’s appearance in the seminal Dark Knight Returns. We think this episode features some of the coolest things we’ve ever done.”
We haven’t seen it, but we tend to agree…
