ARROW Actor Stephen Amell Has NOT talked With Studio About JUSTICE LEAGUE

ARROW Actor Stephen Amell Has NOT talked With Studio About JUSTICE LEAGUE

People, we're starting to get a little crazy with the rumor mill. It doesn't matter if you are a Marvel fan, a DC Fan, and Image fan--whatever. These sort of false stories do not do anyone any good. Here's Amell to set the record straight.

From ARROW star Stephen Amell's Facebook page:

Something I need to get off of my chest.

When I do press, I try and be open, honest and thoughtful. That being said... I find it incredibly discouraging to see a headline like the ones I've been seeing this morning. Headlines that aren't just a stretch, they're totally fabricated. At no point, have I had "studio level" discussions about any feature films at Warner Bros.

In this particular instance, when I read articles that take a pretty straightforward answer and slap a title on it that has little to no correlation to what I've actually said, it makes it seem as though I'm disrespecting my current position. Which is bullshit. And why would I do that? I mean... I'm not the smartest dude in the world. (After all... I picked a career in acting.) But would I really just casually subvert a process cloaked in secrecy? A process - by the way - being run by the company who currently employs me. C'MON!

We're making a kick ass show. We will continue to make a kick ass show. And I will continue to interact and provide interesting content for our fans. Because I love our fans. If every once and a while, some dickweed wants to pull a headline out of thin air to generate page views, then that's the price we pay.


There you have it.

Blanka1212 - 1/22/2014, 1:22 PM
Uh, what BlackJack?
BatmanRobinNightwing - 1/22/2014, 1:23 PM
Well i guess we know that he reads articles from this site. Which is awesome Stephen Amell is a badass and arrow is the best comic book show on TV. Cant wait for tonight only 3 1/2 hrs to go
Supes17 - 1/22/2014, 1:28 PM
Can't wait. Deathstroke is a badass. I hope Nightwing will be too.
Blanka1212 - 1/22/2014, 1:30 PM
Kurne, when did he EVER say that? This is the shit I'm talking about.
JatevinM - 1/22/2014, 1:36 PM
This is never going to happen plain and simple.
Blanka1212 - 1/22/2014, 1:40 PM
Sidenote: does anyone know how to do the quotations in the yellow highlight?
marvel72 - 1/22/2014, 1:40 PM
they will cast someone who can hold his own against affleck & cavill not some cw actor,its like the idiots that wanted welling to play superman after smallville.
Kurne - 1/22/2014, 1:41 PM
I don't know why he had to go through all this trouble, but Amell has hyped people up for JL in the past for no apparent reason...
themidnightking - 1/22/2014, 1:44 PM
I don't know what to say on this one
JatevinM - 1/22/2014, 1:51 PM
The man isn't going to be cast he hasn't given a film worthy performance.
Arrowhead77 - 1/22/2014, 1:53 PM
Bummer, too bad WB is too stupid to realize how cool it would be to have a big TV and Movie DCCU.
Supes17 - 1/22/2014, 1:55 PM
I think he could do it if they find a way to write his character in
QuestiontheAnswer - 1/22/2014, 1:59 PM
I want a bearded left-wing Oliver Queen not a daddy's boy.
Nomis - 1/22/2014, 2:07 PM
Dag. for a moment...
cosmicman - 1/22/2014, 2:10 PM
so what did Amell mean by stating he had discussions?

Either he was misquoted or WB PR got to him.
npamusic - 1/22/2014, 2:11 PM
So there we have it people. well, not really, but still. I think this puts the nail in the coffin of the "MERGER AMERLL IZ GEWIN TEW BEH EN JUSTAK LEEG!"

I don't see it happening, sorry.
DCMarvelFreshman - 1/22/2014, 2:20 PM
Blanka1212, thanks for covering this, but Amell "having talks with the studio about Justice League" is not a rumor. At least it's not a "rumor" that Amell is referring to. He was quoted by Fandango yesterday saying "I have had discussions," and Fandango added that it was at a studio level. I and a few other sites included 'Studio Level' in headlines and that's is why Amell is upset. So, he was most likely misquoted or he got a call from whoever he works for.
Beaner8127 - 1/22/2014, 8:38 PM
So what was the big name drop that was supposed to be in tonight's episode?
antoineflemming - 1/22/2014, 8:56 PM
Hmmm, guess you're a dickweed DCMarvelFreshman...
Moviefanatic14 - 1/22/2014, 9:37 PM
I think ammell says stuff to keep us watching the show, which he doesn't have to cause we will, but in this case he could've been telling the truth and got in trouble with the big wigs, his statement sounds more apologetic and like he's talking to them more than us the fans
Moviefanatic14 - 1/22/2014, 9:39 PM
Has anyone read the rumor on Ben affleck wanting out of playing batman, which is a possible reason for the delay
JoshuaDBr - 1/22/2014, 9:41 PM
It's good to get rid of the rumors. But this still doesn't change the fact that it can happen. And I still hold out hope!
Mike89 - 1/22/2014, 9:50 PM
Arrow being merged with the DCU is just flat out stupid. WB have shown nothing but incompetence when it comes to building this universe after the delay of Batman vs Superman. I would hate for Arrow to be associated with any future train wreck waiting to happen.
Ranger14 - 1/22/2014, 9:59 PM
"Well i guess we know that he reads articles from this site. Which is awesome Stephen Amell is a badass and arrow is the best comic book show on TV. Cant wait for tonight only 3 1/2 hrs to go"

How do we know that? The same news was posted all over the internet. He could have read it anywhere. Most likely, Fandango.
BenjiWest - 1/22/2014, 9:59 PM
The more I hear from Amell, the more I dislike this guy.
tongtong - 1/22/2014, 10:06 PM
I love Arrow except the guy playing Oliver Queen. If they're bringing Green Arrow to the big screen it better be someone way better than Amell.
mgeoff88 - 1/22/2014, 10:35 PM
He probably had discussions with some people at the CW about this, but not to the extent of "studio level" discussions, which would mean he was talking to Warner Bros. about him appearing in the JL film.

The guy was misquoted and is trying to set the record straight.
SuperDan89 - 1/22/2014, 10:40 PM
No offence to Amell but Chris Hunnam would have made a waaay better Green Arrow & if the DCCU use the character on the big screen I hope it's Hunnam.

good good
exirae - 1/22/2014, 10:47 PM
This really does feel like he opened his mouth, got yelled at for it, and is trying to do some damage control.
Moviefanatic14 - 1/22/2014, 10:49 PM
What if josh holloway is actually playing the big screen Oliver queen, after all he was trapped on an island in the past lol, he looks like queen to
exirae - 1/22/2014, 10:50 PM
"Arrow being merged with the DCU is just flat out stupid. WB have shown nothing but incompetence when it comes to building this universe after the delay of Batman vs Superman."

...yes in the past five days they've showed us nothing but incompetence...in that no news at all since BvsS got delayed... NERD RAGE
MercwithMouth - 1/22/2014, 10:54 PM
@SuperDan

That's a really good choice. Hunnam's a badass on SOA.
nikgrid - 1/22/2014, 11:01 PM
@BenjiWest
The more I hear from Amell, the more I dislike this guy.

Why? Because he's straight forward and frank? I hate [frick]ing rumours.
Moviefanatic14 - 1/22/2014, 11:03 PM
It was not just on here but on Facebook as well what he said
loki668 - 1/22/2014, 11:10 PM
This just in: Water is wet
HurricaneXavier - 1/23/2014, 12:07 AM
@SuperDan its Charlie Hunnam.
SuperDan89 - 1/23/2014, 12:54 AM
@HurricaneXavier

Oh bloody hell haha I have a mate called Chris Hunnam! Funny Charlie Hunnam is a fellow Geordie. Aye well Hunnam in any case! Its early here in ol' England XD
