Stephen Amell Talks Constantine And Other Arrow Crossovers

Arrow star Stephen Amell spoke at Wizard Con this weekend about the show’s ongoing crossover potential following the highly-anticipated visit from Matt Ryan as John Constantine in episode five of the new season.


He revealed that he’d been filming with Matt Ryan the previous week. “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.’”

He also spoke about the potential for DC’s big guns, like Batman, appearing on the show. He said that he’s spoken DC Entertainment chief Diane Nelson who told him that they wanted to make “the best version of each thing and not forcing crossovers just for the sake of forcing them.” The actor himself, though, still holds out hope.

“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 Arrow appearing in the big screen DC projects, Amell mused, “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.”

Another barrier might be would he actually have time? “I love Arrow. I love the universe that we have helped launch, now with Flash and with Legends Of Tomorrow and… I don’t know if Supergirl is in our universe. Who knows? But I’m super busy.”
