Stephen Amell Is Green Arrow


Stephen Amell (The Vampire Diaries) has landed the lead role in the CW’s version of DC Comics’ Green Arrow. David Nutter will direct the project, while Andrew Kreisberg, Greg Berlanti, and Marc Guggenheim will write the show. Here is some background on Green Arrow:

Green Arrow is a vigilante superhero who fights crime using archery, martial arts and technology. In his secret identity he is Oliver Queen, living in Star City as a wealthy playboy and billionaire industrialist turned outspoken liberal politician. He is the leader of Team Arrow; he has also been a member of the Justice League and the Outsiders.

The show has been moving through development at a rapid place since The CW picked up the rights, suggesting the ailing network may be keen to get back some of its Smallville mojo.The role of Green Arrow was previously played by Justin Hartley on Smallville.

The Jacob Jacob is a contributor to FanBolt. He updates on entertainment news, reviews books and movies, and keeps everybody up-to-date in the world of comedy. He’s been a member of FanBolt since 2009 and started writing posts shortly thereafter! He also thinks Norm MacDonald is the funniest man alive.


  1. Wonder whose choice it was for someone other than Justin Hartley to play GA. he made a great Green Arrow, but perhaps he was ready to move on and avoid typecasting.
