What's This?

With Stephen Amell already playing the Green Arrow on the small screen, there is a pretty good chance he will never get to play another DC superhero on the big screen. Amell said he would settle for the Riddler instead.


Warner Bros and DC have taken the unfortunate decision not to have storylines of both their movies and TV shows run parallel to each other, unlike Marvel. This eliminates the chance of actors playing popular superheroes like Arrow or The Flash on the TV series to reprise their roles on the big screen, too.

Who wouldn’t love to see Grant Gustin whooshing past Batman on one of the Justice League movies, or Stephen Amell shooting at bad guys on an “Arrow”? That day may never come, thanks to DC’s plan to have separate actors playing the same superhero on small and big screens simultaneously.

However, if Stephen had to play a superhero on the big screen, which one would he choose?

“I always get this question, I think all the superheroes are taken now. I’ll play The Riddler, okay? It’s a villain, but I like The Riddler,” answered Stephen Amell in an interview with Comic Book Movie.

According to International Business Times, this is not a recent fascination with the character of Riddler for Amell. He has been obsessed with this DC super villain for quite some time.

“The Riddler. I think I actually said that to Geoff Johns at like 2 o’clock in the morning Saturday. ‘Hey, Geoff, I want to play the Riddler.’ That actually happened,” Amell had said in San Diego Comic-Con International back in 2014 when he was asked the same question.

But why would Amell choose the Riddler out of all possible super villains in the DC universe?

“The Riddler, I mean that’s an awesome villain, and it hasn’t been in the modern… well, I guess modern, post-turn-of-the-century versions of Batman. So that would be cool,” Amell had added.

Do you think Stephen Amell would make a good Riddler?
