Old Man Ollie, Young Green Arrow, Deathstroke Tangle with 'Legends of Tomorrow' in 2046 Star City
Stephen Amell sports the iconic goatee of the comic book Green Arrow and shared a still photo (below) and a couple more on his Twitter page. Ollie will also share other characteristics from the comics.
“Every once and a while, we do an episode where the 10-year-old me has to pinch himself,” executive producer Marc Guggenheim [told EW]. “We’re not only introducing our version of Connor Hawke to our universe, we’re going to meet the 2046 version of Oliver Queen, and Stephen Amell is going to be reprising his role from Arrow. As an added bonus to comic-book fans, Oliver is missing his left arm and will be sporting a goatee, in a nod to the character’s appearance in the seminal Dark Knight Returns. We think this episode features some of the coolest things we’ve ever done.”
In the television version, Hawke won't be Ollie's son who takes the mantle from him as in the comics but is a different version as Guggenheim stated. Joseph David-Jones (The Divergent Series: Allegiant) is playing the CW's Hawke. Deathstroke makes an appearance as the highlighted baddie but is it Slade Wilson?
DC’s Legends of Tomorrow airs Thursdays at 8 p.m. ET on The CW.
