Green Arrow will be going Dark Knight in Legends of Tomorrow
Posted on Feb 13, 2016
Stephen Amell already popped up in the excellent first episode of Legends of Tomorrow.
He will be guest starring in a future episode of the show. As it is all about time travel, we will be seeing the Green Arrow of 2046.
Turns out he will be rocking the goatee and his son Connor Hawke will be with him. It also appears they will giving a nod to Frank Miller?s The Dark Knight Returns.
Executive producer Marc Guggenheim had this to say about it:
Every once and a while, we do an episode where the 10-year-old me has to pinch himself. 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.
That sounds very cool. So we have got Jonah Hex and now an older Green Arrow to look forward to. Who else will crop up?

In DC?S LEGENDS OF TOMORROW, when heroes alone are not enough? the world needs legends. Having seen the future, one he will desperately try to prevent from happening, time-traveling rogue Rip Hunter is tasked with assembling a disparate group of both heroes and villains to confront an unstoppable threat ? one in which not only the planet is at stake, but all of time itself. Can this ragtag team defeat an immortal threat unlike anything they have ever known?
