During a press tour for his new movie: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows, Stephen Amell was asked what superhero he would be interested in playing next. Most of the times he says, “Green Arrow” whom he plays on the CW TV show ‘Arrow’. Well this time it was a different answer and it might even shock you!
“I always get this question,” Amell told an interviewer from CinemaPop, as seen above. “I think all the superheroes are taken now. I’ll play The Riddler, okay? It’s a villain, but I like The Riddler.”
Stephen Amell has replied his answer, “The Riddler” before. This was at the Nerd HQ at San Diego Comic-Con International back in 2014.
There have been rumors about a lot of Batman villains appearing in Ben Affleck’s stand alone Batman movie. There was also an Easter egg of Riddler in Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice. His question mark sign can be seen.
Stephen Amell has talked to WB for a Green Arrow movie but since the TV shows and Movies are not in the same universe unlike Marvel, a Green Arrow movie with Stephen as Oliver Queen will most likely not be happening. A Green Arrow movie can still happen just not with the same person.
Arrow Season 5 will premiere in October. It airs Wednesdays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on The CW.
Share your thoughts! What do you think? Is Amell the right choice? Will WB make a Green Arrow movie?
