Stephen Amell has become synonymous with the Green Arrow, but fans know he was not the first to play the character on The CW. Actor Justin Hartley played Oliver Queen on Smallville, and the two Arrows held a mini-reunion this weekend.
Amell posted a picture of the two of them on Twitter, with a tongue-in-cheek caption mentioning a “deleted scene” from last week’s Crisis On Earth-X crossover, which pitted The CW superheroes against their doppelgangers from alternate timelines. Check out the picture in the tweet below:
