Sons of Anarchy star Charlie Hunnam becomes the DCEU’s Green Arrow in a cool new concept design.
With the DC Extended Universe pushing forward with a focus on telling smaller stories with singular heroes, many fans wonder which other costumed vigilantes will make the jump to the silver screen. Thanks to the popularity of Stephen Amell’s Green Arrow series, there’s always been an ongoing question on whether Warner Bros. and DC will give Oliver Queen a standalone movie set in the DCEU. And it seems like there’s only one rightful candidate for the role. Unfortunately for Amell, Charlie Hunnam is who comic readers want to see as the Emerald Archer in Star City.
The current future of the hero lies in the Green Arrow and The Canaries series which is still in development at The CW. It sees Oliver Queen’s daughter, Mia Queen, taking on the mantle after her father’s death in The CW’s Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover event. But if Charlie Hunnam does get a shot at the Green Arrow role for the DCEU, Instagram user “saarukan.psd” has already created an ideal look for the British actor. The design puts Hunnam in a tactical battle suit, which looks like it takes some cues from Christian Bale’s Batman costume in Christopher Nolan’s trilogy. Take a look at Charlie Hunnam as Green Arrow for the DCEU below.
