Exclusive: Stephen Amell Brings His Arrow Alias to the Injustice Video Game
Injustice: Gods Among Us
Stephen Amell's got game. Literally. The Arrow star is bringing his superhero alias to the highly anticipated video game Injustice: Gods Among Us.
Amell, who plays Oliver Queen on the hit CW series, is lending his voice (and likeness) for a variation on Green Arrow in the game, which is based on the DC Comics universe. Players can unlock the Arrow character, an alternate version (or "skin," in gaming parlance) of the game's default setting, which is the classic comic book incarnation of the Emerald Archer.
Injustice — developed by NetherRealm Studios, creators of the popular Mortal Kombat games — is an ambitious production, with intense fighting elements and an extensive storyline along the lines of a Hollywood blockbuster. DC Comics' most iconic characters are featured, including Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, the Flash, Lex Luthor, the Joker and Catwoman.
Among the voice cast is fan favorite Kevin Conroy as Batman, a character he originated in Batman: The Animated Series and has played in countless animated shows, movies and video games. George Newbern is Superman, a role he played on Cartoon Network's Justice League, and animation vet Tara Strong (The Powerpuff Girls, The Fairly Oddparents) is Harley Quinn.
Injustice: Gods Among Us goes on sale April 16 for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Wii U.
