Today, Entertainment Weekly revealed that Oliver Queen will indeed finally dawn his legendary and classic goatee; as well as being one-armed. This of course is a bit of a shock considering star Stephen Amell has stated he will never have a goatee on his show Arrow. This of course is mostly true considering this version of the Green Arrow will be from the future in 2048 on DC’s Legends of Tomorrow.
Showrunner Marc Guggenheim revealed to the site how this incarnation of Oliver Queen will look:
“Every once and a while, we do an episode where the 10-year-old me has to pinch himself. 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.”
