Arrow-acteur Stephen Amell spreekt over Justice League

Arrow is momenteel te zien als serie en daarnaast werkt DC aan andere televisieseries. In Arrow speelt Stephen Amell de hoofdrol en onthulde in een interview dat hij al gesprekken heeft gehad over een crossover van de televisieserie met de Justice League-film. Stephen Amell zei:

“All we have to do for something like that to happen, or even be a possibility, is continue to take care of business with our show and then we put ourselves in a position – but the important thing is our show,” he says, revealing that there definitely have been talks at a studio level. “I have had discussions, but I think the gestation process for this project is a lot slower than most people think. I mean, they haven’t even shot the next one. They haven’t even shot a frame of the movie before the movie everyone thinks is the Justice League movie!”

Daarmee lijkt de acteur te bevestigen dat na Batman vs. Superman er een Justice League-film uitkomt. Indien er een croos-over komt tussen de televisieseries van DC en de films, is er het voordeel dat de personages uit de series (Flash en Arrow) geen introductie meer nodig hebben.

UPDATE: Amell ontkent de berichten nu op zijn Facebook-pagina:

“[]… I find it incredibly discouraging to see a headline like the ones I’ve been seeing this morning. Headlines that aren’t just a stretch, they’re totally fabricated. At no point, have I had “studio level” discussions about any feature films at Warner Bros.”

“In this particular instance, when I read articles that take a pretty straightforward answer and slap a title on it that has little to no correlation to what I’ve actually said, it makes it seem as though I’m disrespecting my current position. Which is bullshit. And why would I do that? I mean… I’m not the smartest dude in the world. (After all… I picked a career in acting.) But would I really just casually subvert a process cloaked in secrecy? A process – by the way – being run by the company who currently employs me. C’MON!”
