So Stephen Amell is set to reprise his Oliver Queen role in DC’s Legends of Tomorrow in the sixth episode of the season which takes place in 2046!
“Every once and a while, we do an episode where the 10-year-old me has to pinch himself,” executive producer Marc Guggenheim tells EW in a recent interview. “We’re not only introducing our version of Connor Hawke to our universe, we’re going to meet the 2046 version of Oliver Queen, and Stephen Amell is going to be reprising his role from Arrow. As an added bonus to comic-book fans, Oliver is missing his left arm and will be sporting a goatee, in a nod to the character’s appearance in the seminal Dark Knight Returns. We think this episode features some of the coolest things we’ve ever done.”
Amell took to Facebook to confirm the news with a video entitled “The Goatee Cometh…” that he, along with Connor Hawke and the goatee, will appear in Legends of Tomorrow. Check out the video below.
