The Goatee Is Coming To “Arrow”

After six years with either smooth or designer stubble, Stephen Amell’s Oliver Queen is finally getting the iconic Green Arrow goatee for the upcoming seventh season.

Amell appeared at Motor City Comic Con this week and admitted that it’s coming. The admission comes after years of him being against adopting the character’s signature facial hair saying he doesn’t look good with a goatee:

“Just because you’ve been polite, and just because everyone has been so nice to me today, I can break some news for you and let you know that in Season Seven I am going to debut the goatee.”

Sadly he did insinuate that it might not be a permanent look, more a brief treat for fans than anything else. “Arrow” returns in the Fall.
