A digital artist has created an image that imagines Sons of Anarchy and King Arthur: Legend of the Sword star Charlie Hunnam as the DCEU’s Green Arrow.
Despite the popularity of Stephen Amell’s Green Arrow series on The CW, Warner Bros. has yet to introduce its own version of the character in the DC Extended Universe. When rumors began to mount long ago suggesting a possible Green Arrow film being in development at the studio, Charlie Hunnam was rumored to have been considered for the job. Charlie Hunnam’s striking resemblance to the Green Arrow as well as his rising popularity at the time with Sons of Anarchy becoming a hit on FX made him a serious contender for the gig.
Now, Ramesh De Silva has shared an awesome piece that shows what Charlie Hunnam could look like as the DCEU’s Green Arrow. You can see the actor suited up as the Emerald Archer below.
Back in 2017, Charlie Hunnam was asked if he’d take on a superhero role. At the time, Charlie Hunnam wasn’t quite up to speed with the genre and thought it might be a bad move for his career. It’s no great surprise that the actor later had a big change of heart and said that even though he’s not into comic books himself, he’d certainly like for Warner Bros. and DC Films to reach out since he happens to look so much like the Green Arrow.

While there are no rumors indicating that Warner Bros. and DC are currently developing a Green Arrow film, they are working on many other projects. The list includes Matt Reeves’ The Batman, a Cyborg standalone film, a Flash standalone film, The Suicide Squad, Aquaman 2, The Trench, Black Adam, Supergirl, and New Gods.
For now, Green Arrow fans can catch the Stephen Amell as the iconic DC Comics character when he returns for the shortened, 10-episode final season of Arrow this fall.
