LEGENDS OF TOMORROW: Stephen Amell To Play Future 'Green Arrow', But There's An Awesome <font color=red>TWIST</font>

Are you a fan of The Dark Knight Returns? Well, you're going to love what Legends of Tomorrow has planned for the Green Arrow, though who will be joining Oliver Queen in the future might shock you..

We've known for a while now that Stephen Amell would have the iconic (?) goatee when he reprises the role of Oliver Queen in a future version of Star City in Legends of Tomorrow, but Entertainment Weekly has made if official with the first details of what his appearance will comprise of. Appearing in episode six, this instalment takes place in 2046, and the Green Arrow is going to be joined by Connor Hawke. Is that going to be the son we met last year? Time will tell.

It sounds like he'll be the new Green Arrow too, as this version of Oliver is going to have something in common with the one who showed up in The Dark Knight Returns. "Every once and a while, we do an episode where the 10-year-old me has to pinch himself," executive producer Marc Guggenheim explains. "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."

This sounds pretty damn awesome, and it will be interesting to see just how much the Green Arrow we know has changed thirty years from now. It's fair to say that most of us didn't expect to see a version of Oliver this old or battle damaged, but the inclusion of Connor will be very interesting.
