‘Arrow’: Stephen Amell Weighs In On Green Arrow Vs. Hawkeye Debate

Stephen Amell Hawkeye Avengers Infinity War Green ArrowFans have debated who would win in a fight between DC’s Green Arrow and Marvel’s Hawkeye for a long time. Speaking at Motor City Comic Con, Arrow star Stephen Amell weighed in on which archer would come out on top.

Amell’s answer may have mostly been in jest, but there certainly seems to be at least a kernel of truth to be found in his comments about Hawkeye:

“I think that any iteration of Green Arrow would beat any iteration of Hawkeye just based on the fact he’s not weird and left handed. I’m kidding, I’m kidding, just kidding.”

Regardless of how serious these comments were meant to be, Amell is far from unbiased. Having played this character for about six years, Amell has certainly grown attached to the Green Arrow. Sadly, it’s doubtful we will ever see Hawkeye and Green Arrow fight on-screen to know for sure. The characters are very evenly matched and have just about the same abilities. Maybe it would be a stalemate. The characters could just wind up fighting until they’re both exhausted and agree to just call it a tie. In fact, they’d probably get along pretty well.

So, what do you think? Who would win in this battle of the archers? Let us know your pick down in the comments!

Arrow stars Stephen Amell as Oliver Queen/Green Arrow, Emily Bett Rickards as Felicity Smoak, David Ramsey as John Diggle, Willa Holland as Thea Queen/Speedy, Paul Blackthorne as Quentin Lance, Juliana Harkavy as Dinah Drake/Black Canary, Rick Gonzalez as Rene Ramirez/Wild Dog, Echo Kellum as Curtis Holt/Wild Dog and Katie Cassidy as Laurel Lance/Black Siren.

Starting next season, Arrow will be airing on Monday nights on The CW.

10 DC Comics Stories That Could Top ‘Avengers: Infinity War’

Avengers Infinity War Thanos Marvel DC ComicsNow that general audiences have seen Avengers: Infinity War, nothing will ever be the same for the DC films. Avengers: Infinity War feels more like an event starring everyone’s favorite characters than a traditional movie, and it will be hard for Warner Bros. to replicate that feeling of excitement for their comic book movies. DC’s counter-part to Avengers, Justice League, didn’t achieve nearly the same level of success and now the studio has to think of a new plan to get their cinematic universe chugging along.

Fortunately, DC Comics has a huge repertoire of epic, personal stories to explore for cinematic potential. While Thanos may be more destructive than the villains in some of these stories, that doesn’t mean these adventures don’t result in real, destructive changes in the DC Universe. After forcing DC’s finest heroes to fight Doomsday and Steppenwolf, two of the publisher’s strongest villains, on the big screen so early in the cinematic universe’s history, WB may want to step back and focus on personal stories. Even if none of these plotlines make it to the big screen, and if they do they would all require some major tweaking, they are all excellent examples of DC’s finest work.
