Wait, is Stephen Amell growing the now famous comic Green Arrow’s Van Dyke beard?!

The actor recently said that he wouldn’t ever have the beard on the show: “100% no. Never. Our show could go 14 seasons and a goatee will never appear. Hope that clears things up. Forever.”

But his latest instagram post (below) seems to indicate that he s now movie toward the more traditional Oliver Queen/Green Arrow look.

After he appeared earlier this season as the Green Arrow familiar to comic fans from The Dark Knight Returns comic (older, bearded and one-armed) we guessed it’s now a case of all bets are off.

He’s the Green Arrow now – no longer just the Arrow – so like Batman’s ears or Superman’s red cape, the beard man cometh.

He declares in the Instagram post that “The beard moves along” and we tend to agree…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
