Move over, Justin Hartley: Stephen Amell is stealing your arrows. The actor has landed the leading role in The CW's Arrow, a modern retelling of the Green Arrow's adventures, TVGuide.com has confirmed. Deadline first reported the news.
Similar to Bruce Wayne's Batman, Oliver Queen's Green Arrow has no otherworldly superpowers. The playboy-by-day, archer-by-night just has a knack for crime-fighting, archery and martial arts. He is also independently wealthy and has easy access to advanced technologies. Good to be him!
Hartley previously played the emerald archer on The CW's Smallville.
