Green Arrow has consistently had a presence in live action for almost 10 full years,. First he was played by Justin Hartley on Smallville for five seasons, and Stephen Amell has been playing the character since 2012 on Arrow and other shows in the DC TV universe. Now the DC Extended Universe is underway, fans have wondered whether they’ll see a cinematic Green Arrow drawing back his bow at some point. Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like that will happen anytime soon.

During his recent appearance on Larry King Now, Stephen Amell revealed that Green Arrow currently isn’t a candidate for big screen adaptation. As he put it:

“I’ve spoken with people within DC and they’ve said there’s no plan to bring the Green Arrow character to the cinematic universe, but things change.”

Once again we have a DC hero who has an important role on one medium, but is being excluded in another. If you ignore a young Bruce Wayne on Gotham and hazy glimpses of Superman on Supergirl, then that makes Flash the only hero who has a major role in both the DC movies and television. Right now the DCEU has a fair number of heroes on its plate, from Superman and Wonder Woman to Shazam and Cyborg. Most of those characters will eventually be members of the Justice League, but still, it would be cool to see Green Arrow recruited onto the team, whether he got his own solo movie or not.
