After Arrow lead Stephen Amell conquered an American Ninja Warrior course, he took a victory lap in the United Kingdom. At a recent Q&A panel, he got a chance to talk with his fans – and he clarified that he doesn’t have any interest in doing a musical episode of the series.
Those of you who wanted to hear Amell bust out his musical chops on the show are bound to be disappointed, as the Oliver Queen actor has stated at London’s Heroes & Villains Fan Fest that there are no plans for such an episode to be made – or, at the very least, that he wouldn’t be up for it. Amell’s response to the query was a simple rejection:
“You know, I — no… no… no.”
However, Amell’s co-star, Emily Bett Rickards (who plays Felicity Smoak), was more open to the idea:
“Yeah, as long as John Barrowman was there.”
Amell’s full remarks can be seen here:
The CW previously tried a musical episode with The Flash (which doubled as a crossover with Supergirl), featuring the aforementioned Barrowman in a supporting role as Malcolm Merlyn. Rickards suggesting that Barrowman should be on the episode likely serves as a bit of a joke, as the actor just announced that he’d be moving on from the Arrowverse following Arrow‘s fifth season finale. Still, there’s room for the show to keep going, and Amell can always come around to the idea.
Arrow Season 6 will begin this October in its new timeslot on Thursday nights at 9 p.m. ET/PT on The CW.
7 Reasons Why ‘Arrow’ Is Better Than ‘The Flash’ This Season
Say what you want about the DC Cinematic Universe, but the DC Television Universe has been on a roll. What first started with Arrow, has now expanded to Arrow, The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow, and Supergirl and will soon have future shows added as well. With such an extensive universe, the CW now has a superhero show on almost every day of the week.
There has always been a “which is better” debate between the two premiere shows The Flash and Arrow. Many have always thought of Arrow as being “Batman-Lite” in its approach as well as its darkness. Meanwhile, The Flash has had all the fun, hopefulness, and optimism that a comic book normally has, it’s literally a comic book brought to life. For the first two seasons, since it premiered, many have thought that The Flash was a better TV show. However, this season Arrow has been firing on all cylinders. After the less than well received season 4th season of Arrow, the show has gone back to its roots, and put out some quality episodes this season. It’s arguable that this season of Arrow is just as good, if not better than this season of The Flash. Here are a few reasons that this season of Arrow is actually better. Click Next to take a look…
