Talk on Oliver Queen in the ever growing DC Expanded Universe has been pretty minimal. A few weeks ago a rumor surfaced that DC was considering a Birds of Prey film starring Black Canary. Well according to the comics Black Canary has been the long time love interest to the Green Arrow aka Oliver Queen. Now an official grossing chart has been released showcasing the highest grossing companies in the DC Expanded Universe…
“QUEEN INDUSTRIES - Third on the list but a significant drop off #2. Their aloof, often absent CEO is rumored to be considering an exit from military contracts all together.”
This of course is a nod towards Oliver Queen going missing for 5 years after his family’s yacht accident.
The current problem however is that currently we have the TV show Arrow currently in it’s forth season on The CW starring Stephen Amell. The show was always planned as a 5 season show by its creators. Of course this was before introducing The Flash and next years Legends of Tomorrow into the same universe. So DC could simply wait until the end of next year and force the show to conclude before introducing the DC movie version of Oliver Queen.
In any case many fans have gone onto fancast who they would like to play Oliver Queen in the films when he does get finally introduced. The top choice is Sons of Anarchy star Charlie Hunnum amongst others. While he hasn’t been many feature films he does have the look to pull off the classic Green Arrow look.
