‘Arrow’ Star Stephen Amell Says He’d Be Open To Jumping Ship To Marvel

With four seasons of Arrow under this belt (and at least one more to come), Stephen Amell is one of DC Comics’ most recognizable live-action faces. In the past, Amell has made some very partisan pro-DC statements, but it seems like he may be starting to envy the grass over in the Marvel pasture.

In a recent Facebook video, Amell had this to say about the possibility of doing a Marvel movie:

“Sure, why not? I’m up for roles, movie roles, although I’ve never really read many Marvel Comics and I was always a DC guy even before I was a DC guy. But it’s not like if I got offered an awesome Marvel superhero, I’d be like ‘No, I can’t.'”

One reason Amell may be opening the door to Marvel is because, from the the sounds of it, Arrow may not be around for too much longer:

“We were always built to be a five-year show, which is a very courageous thing to plan for when you’re just in the pilot stages of something. But that doesn’t mean that we can’t go six or seven seasons. I can’t really picture beyond that. But we’ll see. I’m having a blast.”

Hopefully Amell does get another opportunity from either DC or Marvel when Arrow wraps up, because he’s certainly proven his superhero skills.
