Just about every fan understands the inner desire to live in a world populated with superheroes or at the very least spend some time in any of the fictional worlds superhero films and TV shows have created for us on the screen. However, what happens when someone takes the wish fulfillment too far? ‘Arrow’ star Stephen Amell discovered the answer this past weekend when an overzealous fan attacked him, claiming he wanted to fight Green Arrow.
Stephen Amell took to Facebook yesterday to recount the incident where he explains that the fan headbutted him out of nowhere, declaring, “I want to fight the Green Arrow.” However, in true superhero form, Amell’s reaction was rather dignified.
Check out the post below to read the full story and learn how Amell chose to respond to the enthusiastic fan.
Dude came up to me yesterday… Head Butts me hard. Outta nowhere… Then says — "I want to fight the Green Arrow."…
A very classy response from Stephen Amell, especially when you consider that since the actor performs many of his own stunts on ‘Arrow’ and even stepped into the WWE ring last year, Green Arrow probably would have won that fight easily.
Newly appointed Mayor Oliver Queen finds himself challenged as he fights on two fronts for the future of Star City. With Diggle back in the military and Thea adamant about hanging up her hood as Speedy, Team Green Arrow is down to just Oliver and Felicity – but they’re no longer the only vigilantes in town. Green Arrow’s public defeat of Damien Darhk at the end of Season Four has inspired a new crop of masked heroes to step up and defend the city, though their painful inexperience makes them obstacles, rather than allies, in the field. The arrival of a deadly new adversary will force Oliver to confront questions about his own legacy, both as mayor and as the Green Arrow.
Arrow airs on Wednesday at 8:00 pm ET on The CW.
