/arrow-star-stephen-amell-confirms-talks-for-justice-league/Earlier this morning, Arrow star Stephen Amell was quoted as saying he had been involved in talks to reprise his role as Oliver Queen (aka Green Arrow) from the hit CW series in the upcoming Justice League movie. He has now released a statement, claiming that the quote was taken out of context, and that no studio level discussions about the project have ever taken place with Warner Bros.
This is his original statement.
" All we have to do for something like that to happen, or even be a possibility, is continue to take care of business with our show and then we put ourselves in a position - but the important thing is our show. I have had discussions, but I think the gestation process for this project is a lot slower than most people think. I mean, they haven't even shot the next one. They haven't even shot a frame of the movie before the movie everyone thinks is the Justice League movie!"
Now, the actor has taken to his personal Facebook page to clarify the rumor and clear his name of any wrong doing.
" Something I need to get off of my chest.
When I do press, I try and be open, honest and thoughtful. That being said... I find it incredibly discouraging to see a headline like the ones I've been seeing this morning. Headlines that aren't just a stretch, they're totally fabricated. At no point, have I had "studio level" discussions about any feature films at Warner Bros.
In this particular instance, when I read articles that take a pretty straightforward answer and slap a title on it that has little to no correlation to what I've actually said, it makes it seem as though I'm disrespecting my current position. Which is bullshit. And why would I do that? I mean... I'm not the smartest dude in the world. (After all... I picked a career in acting.) But would I really just casually subvert a process cloaked in secrecy? A process - by the way - being run by the company who currently employs me. C'MON!
We're making a kick ass show. We will continue to make a kick ass show. And I will continue to interact and provide interesting content for our fans. Because I love our fans. If every once and a while, some dickweed wants to pull a headline out of thin air to generate page views, then that's the price we pay."
It's possible that he spoke out of school about his involvement, and has released this latest statement as a way to clear some bad air. Or, he may have been misquoted. Either way, it seems quite a few fans are be excited about the possibility of seeing this small screen-to-big screen cross over.
