Stephen Amell Talks CONSTANTINE, Chances Of BATMAN Coming To ARROW, And More

Before heading into action at WWE SummerSlam tomorrow, Stephen Amell appeared at Wizard World Chicago earlier today to talk all things Arrow. Hit the jump to check out what he had to say about Matt Ryan's Constantine coming to the series, Batman, the DCEU, and more...

Stephen Amell appeared at Wizard World Chicago today, and had plenty to say about what's to come when he transforms into Green Arrow later this year. Confirming that he's already shot scenes with Matt Ryan for Constantine's appearance in Arrow season four, the actor had nothing but good things to say about working alongside the Welsh actor. "I've been filming scenes all week long with Matt Ryan," he told fans in attendance. "He is such a treat. And a trip. He's always saying his lines -- and he's getting ready to go on Broadway right now with Kiera Knightley, so he's always saying those lines, too. I can't tell if he's having a conversation with me, or preparing. And sometimes I chime in, he'll be like 'I wasn't talking to you, mate.'" It's going to be interesting to see if Ryan's new acting commitments stop him from making any future appearances in this corner of the DC Extended Universe, especially as there's been a lot of talk of this simply being a one-off. Now, what about Batman? Well more than just his villains might be coming to Star City.

Confirming that he's talked to DC Entertainment chief Diane Nelson about the chances of a character like Batman in Arrow, Amelll said that she told him that they want to make "the best version of each thing and not forcing crossovers just for the sake of forcing them." Admitting it would be "tough" to bring the Caped Crusader to Star City, he added: "In the same way that... [Ezra Miller's] playing the Flash in the cinematic universe -- theoretically, we haven't seen him yet -- I see no reason why we couldn't have our own Bruce Wayne. That's my opinion; that might not be DC's opinion, and their the bosses." As for bringing his Green Arrow to the big screen in one of the upcoming DC Extended Universe movies, he remains optimistic that it could happen, but sounds content doing what he's doing. "Whenever I talk to people, it's like, 'This is an evolving process.' And there's absolutely no contractual barriers and/or creative barriers between me and being in a movie, one of the DC movies." What do you guys think about Amell's comments here?
