Stephen Amell Teases Green Arrow Goatee

arrow-goatee

Let's be honest, Arrow could go down as the world's greatest comic book show of all-time, if only Stephen Amell's Oliver Queen would sport that sexy, blond goatee his fictional counterpart wears in the comics.

Amell has said time and time again, it won't happen on Arrow. Last July, he tried to put the goatee requests to rest with this tweet: "100% no. Never. Our show could go 14 seasons and a goatee will never appear. Hope that clears things up. Forever."

To be fair, Arrow has a well-crafted formula that utilizes flashbacks to Oliver's youthful days, so it would be nearly impossible for Amell to grow out a beard, or it would look odd if he wore fake facial hair, for the present-day sequences.

However, earlier this year, Amell did wear a bushy, gray beard for an episode of DC's Legend Legends of Tomorrow. It was Oliver thirty years from now and in an alternate future that no longer exists, though it didn't satiate the pro-goatee contingent.

Now it looks like Amell will indeed have a goatee. On Saturday, he posted a photo on his official Facebook page, showing a beard taking root across his chiseled chin. The caption reads, "The beard moves along."

 Arrow airs Wednesdays at 8PM on The CW.

    "Let's be honest, Arrow could go down as the world's greatest comic book show of all-time, if only Stephen Amell's Oliver Queen would sport that sexy, blond goatee his fictional counterpart wears in the comics." Arrow has a lot of things keeping it from being the world's greatest comic book show of all-time, and none of it has to do with the goatee.

  1. Yeah, no thanks. A goatee won't bring me back to this awful show in Season 5.

    It really only has one. It's name is Olicity and it refuses to die.

    The goatee wouldn't be sexy and Oliver is in his early thirties so it'll end up looking weird. No thanks

    There's very very little that could stop Stephen Amell being sexy, a goatee is not on the list.
