Stephen Amell: We are building the Justice League for TV

September 12th, 2014 by Marc Comments

Well, we sort of knew this, but it’s good to hear it from the Arrow himself, actor Stephen Amell.

The actor, who is really making the role of (Green) Arrow his own, was at FanExpo and was asked about his feelings towards the series not being part of the cinematic Justice League universe being built by ZAck Snyder’s Man Of Steel and Batman V Superman: “We are creating a Justice League on TV for us. I don’t think there is a logistical reality to us participating in the feature side. That being said, I never wanted to have to feel like the show was justified, just because we participated in the movie. I don’t think my character would participate on the cinematic side.”

“What’s that saying… six seasons and a movie? Our show right now has me, Arsenal, Flash. There’s going to be Firestorm and Atom. The Justice League elements of it are very present on our shows already.”

As much as one of the things that really bugged us was the fact that the TV and Cinematic universes weren’t linked, we can’t help but be excited that Arrow and soon The Flash, are so strong that they plan on taking that world to places we haven’t yet dreamed of…

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….
