Get ready for the new daily show

Looks like Stephen Amell is keen on working with Kevin Smith for a dark-Arrow story arc…

You may remember last week that Kevin Smith said he’d love to bring his own created character, Onomatopoeia, into the Arrow TV show.

Onomatopoeia was originally written as a villain in the Green Arrow books during Smith’s time on the book, although he also popped up in Smith’s Batman run too.


Now, despite having once said the character wouldn’t work on the screen, Smith, still high from directing last week’s Flash (and returning next season) really wants to go a little darker and get into a serious “SEVEN-ish” tale in Star City.

Now a Arrow fan has brought the idea to the attention of Green Arrow himself, Stephen Amell, and Amell seems VERY keen – as you can see below. We apologise for his language.


So, when Smith heard about it he Tweeted Amell (below) and made it known he’s totally in… does this count as discussions taking place? We’re saying yes…

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….
