With the recent news that Batman vs. Superman has been pushed back, fans are now wondering what will be happening with the rumored Justice League movie that was supposed to follow the Man of Steel sequel. Now that everything has been pushed back, more rumors are starting to surface now that more people have some free time on their hands.
One actor starting rumors, who actually has pretty full plate, is Arrow star Stephen Amell. The star of the hit CW show spoke with Fandango recently and said that he has had discussions with Warner Bros. about a Justice League movie that would crossover with Arrow.
“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,” said Amell. “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!”
The discussions apparently happened at the studio level, which means that they were pretty serious conversations, not just something brought up in passing. The most interesting part about this isn’t that a Justice League movie is being discussed, as we already knew that, but Amell’s Green Arrow is being looked at for the film.
All of this is obviously up in the air with Batman vs. Superman being pushed back to May 2016, but it sounds like things are coming together.
