Will Green Arrow appear in the DCEU?  If rumors are to be believed, there are more heroes besides Aquaman, Wonder Woman, Superman, Flash, Cyborg, Batman and Mera appearing in the Justice League film.  While most fans are hoping to see "Green" Lantern appear as the seventh member, what if it turns out that Star City's very own modern-day Robin Hood is the final hero that rounds out the JL roster?

 According to Stephen Amell, star of The CW's Arrow, he wouldn't be mad at all if another actor was chosen to play the Golden Age DC Comics hero.  In fact, Amell clarified that his earlier comments expressing dismay at WB not using Grant Gustin to play Barry Allen in the DCEU were taken out of context.

Said Amell, to the audience, "I do not have a right to Oliver Queen. Someone played it played it before me. Someone voiced it before me. Somebody will play it after me. I don’t believe that there are plans for Oliver Queen in the DC Extended Universe, based off things that people have told me, but I would not be upset if that changed at all."

Arrow season 5 premieres on The CW at 8/7c on October 5.
