‘Peacemaker’: Stephen Amell Pokes Fun At John Cena For That Green Arrow Joke

Oliver Queen v Christopher Smith: Dawn of Justice

Stephen Amell John Cena Green Arrow Peacemaker

Stephen Amell responded to John Cena’s Green Arrow joke in the season finale of Peacemaker.

Last week, HBO Max dropped the Season Finale of their hit DC Extended Universe (DCEU) series Peacemaker. The series, which stars John Cena in the titular role features numerous references to the broader DCEU, and the finale featured a pretty hilarious jab at Green Arrow. Naturally, Oliver Queen actor Stephen Amell had a pretty interesting response.

Stephen Amell, whom played the titular archer in The CW’s Arrow responded to the first canonical namedrop of Green Arrow in the DCEU. As you can see, he had quite the direct response to John Cena:

Stephen Amell’s response to John Cena is quite a burn, given that along with his growing acting career, the Peacemaker star is most notable for being one of the most popular wrestlers in the world thanks to his career in the WWE. It will be interesting to see how Christopher Smith himself will respond to The CW’s Green Arrow, and it wouldn’t be surprising if he’d respond in typical WWE fashion.

Given that Green Arrow is confirmed to exist in the current DCEU, it is unknown what actor would play him. Given that Arrow officially ended on The CW, it is unlikely that it would be Stephen Amell, and the DCEU’s official Oliver Queen will be a different actor, similar to how their version of The Flash is played by Ezra Miller whereas The CW’s is played by Grant Gustin.

Here is the synopsis for John Cena’s Peacemaker:

PEACEMAKER explores the continuing story of the character that John Cena reprises in the aftermath of executive producer James Gunn’s 2021 film The Suicide Squad – a compellingly vainglorious man who believes in peace at any cost, no matter how many people he has to kill to get it!

The series was created by James Gunn, who wrote all the episodes and directed five of them. The first season of the HBO Max series will consist of eight episodes, with Brad Anderson, Jody Hill, and Rosemary Rodriguez also directing episodes. Clint Mansell and Kevin Kiner also composed the DCEU show’s score.

The HBO Max DCEU series stars John Cena, Danielle Brooks, Freddie Stroma, Chukwudi Iwuji, Jennifer Holland, Steve Agee, and Robert Patrick.

Peacemaker is available on HBO Max. Stay tuned for all the latest news surrounding the upcoming second season of John Cena’s series, as well as some updates on upcoming projects from Green Arrow actor Stephen Amell, and be sure to subscribe to Heroic Hollywood’s YouTube channel for more original video content.
