In an interview about tonight's episode of Legends of Tomorrow, Stephen Amell, star of Arrow, talks about what it's like to play a version of his character 30 years his senior. The aged Green Arrow appears on the episode titled "Star City, 2046" alongside another mysterious younger Green Arrow who sure seems to be their version of Connor Hawke.
But while he gets to jump shows and to the future, Grant Gustin of The Flash gets to jump shows and to yet another universe, to team up with Supergirl. Amell would love for Green Arrow and the Girl of Steel to meet, too, now that the door is at least somewhat open.
"Sure!" he told IGN when they asked about his desire to see Green Arrow and Supergirl cross paths. "In this iteration of the DC Universe, the "Television Universe" as it were, I'm the guy that's been around the longest, so I always feel -- whether I'm on a show or I'm not on a show -- I always feel as though I can in some way, shape or form represent them, and I always want them to be wildly successful and last for many more years than we end up lasting, because I just want to see people have success."
That sense of propriety and ownership over the DC TV universe is something Amell's discussed before, in his pride at having the "best gig at DC." It also means he'd enjoy going to Supergirl, though there's also the bonus of shooting in the city he ostensibly lives in (when not shooting Arrow).
"So I would love to go over to Supergirl. That would be a blast, if for no other reason than I miss shooting in Los Angeles," Amell said with a laugh.
Supergirl airs Mondays at 8pm on CBS, and Arrow returns Wednesday March 23 at 8pm on The CW. Stephen Amell guest stars on Legends of Tomorrow tonight at 8pm on The CW.
