It has been clearly indicated that “Arrow” star Stephen Amell, “Flash” star Grant Gustin and the world of the shows they inhabit are NOT a part of the DC Cinematic Universe and its soon-to-be take on the Justice League.
However, that does not mean they won’t be forming a Justice League of their own. Amell appeared at Fan Expo Canada last weekend and revealed to CBR that The CW network is essentially forming its own take on a DC hero team-up:
“We are creating a Justice League on TV for us. I don’t think there is a logistical reality to us participating in the feature side. That being said, I never wanted to have to feel like the show was justified, just because we participated in the movie. I don’t think my character would participate on the cinematic side. What’s that saying? Is it six seasons and a movie? Our show right now has me, Arsenal, Flash. There’s going to be Firestorm and Atom. The Justice League elements of it are very present on our shows [‘Arrow and The Flash] already.”
With Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman and Aquaman all set to have their time in the sun in “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,” Amell says he’d like another founding member of the league to pop up first on his show – Green Lantern.
“Now, boy we’ve referenced Ferris Air a lot. It would be really cool to have Green Lantern. Hopefully, that happens. I have no inside information, unless I do.”
With production on the third season in full swing, Amell says his favorite elements of the season so far have been his interactions with Roy (Colton Haynes) who dons the hero guise Arsenal:
“That is my favorite part about Season 3 so far. The relationship between Colton Haynes’ character and my character, we’re in a really good spot. We’re in a big brother/little brother spot. We have been trying to find little moments where I do everything short of giving him a noogie.”
