Green Arrow sharing the screen with Green Lantern? Not quite yet.
‘Arrow’ has never been shy about giving shout outs to others from the DC Universe, even incorporating other universes into their timeline.
Small mentions here and there of Coast City, Hal Jordan, and Carly Pope walking in as Susan Williams, has made the fans wonder, could we actually get a visit from Green Lantern?
According to my source, Wendy Mericle, executive producer of ‘Arrow’ talks about Pope’s entrance, and the Green Lantern:
“One of the fun parts of the show is that you can put these characters in and the Easter eggs and the fans that know this universe so well respond to it on varying levels of excitement and whatnot, but the thing about her character that’s so intriguing is that it operates on that level. It also operates because she’s someone who’s very intrigued by Oliver, who’s going to uncover some secrets that Oliver has, which is going to be really fun, and is a fun nod to the Green Lantern, who obviously we could never bring on the show.”
With the Green Lantern Corps movie already being talked about, they don’t want to put too much out there just yet.
Not to mention the terrible reviews from the Ryan Reynolds ‘Green Lantern.’ Yikes. Just Yikes.
Currently airing season five of the super hero show, it doesn’t look like it’s slowing down. With the ever so popular cross-over episodes, and an ass kicking story line, ‘Arrow’ still has a lot of life in it.
Maybe a life that will eventually bring Hal Jordan to Star City? Something we as fans unfortunately must wait for.
‘Arrow’ Stars Stephen Amell, David Ramsey, Willa Holland, Emily Bett Rickards, and Paul Blackthorne.
‘Arrow” airs Wednesday nights at 8/7c on The CW.
