The Green Arrow is coming to DC’s Legends of Tomorrow — but he won’t look like the costumed hero CW viewers have grown to know.
Arrow leading man Stephen Amell will guest-star in Episode 6 of the spinoff series as Oliver Queen circa 2046, TVLine has confirmed.
In a nod to the character’s appearance in the Dark Knight Returns comics, future Oliver “is missing his left arm and will be sporting a goatee,” Legends executive producer Marc Guggenheim said in a statement.
The installment will also introduce “our version of Connor Hawke” — son to Oliver and the second Green Arrow in the comics — “to our universe,” Guggenheim added.
“Every once and a while, we do an episode where the 10-year-old me has to pinch himself,” the EP said. “We think this episode features some of the coolest things we’ve ever done.”
Amell also shared the news via Facebook.
