Poll: Would you like to see the CW's Green Arrow in the DCCU? (45 votes)

Yes 40%
No 58%

I haven't seen asked directly as a poll.

So assuming it's done as well as it can be, would you like to see CW's Arrow join the DCCU?

Personally, I say HELL YES.

As much as I like Arrow, the DCCU should have it's own Green Arrow.

I'd love to see Charlie Hunnam as Ollie.

Yes, but only after the TV show had ran its course. I feel that by the end of the show Ollie would be better equipped and prepared to face super-human threats, thus would be able to deal with the kinda threats he would face in the DCCU. But the Ollie we currently see in the show wouldn't last too long in the world we saw in MoS, so I would rather they further developed his character in the show, honing his skills, and then once the show was over bring him over into the DCCU.

We're only on season 2, we could be on season 5 by the time he appears. Plus he seems to have faced off against super humans on the island, DS, possibly Amazo and it looks like Solomon Grundy is popping up, plus Barry Allen will be returning in ep 19 and he'll likely fight alongside him. I think he'll be ready. Season 3 will be wrapping up when MOS 2 comes out, there is plenty of time.

@xwraith: Couldnt agree more! He'd make a great Ollie.

But to the Op. I love Amell as Ollie, but tv show and movie universes just don't work for me. That way, even if the movie flops at least we still got a kicka** DC tv show!

I'm going to go with no. I think it's fine if the TV and movie universes remain separate.
I'd like a slightly older and more established Green Arrow in the movie universe.
Amell is shaping up to be a great Green Arrow, though.

Even though I do enjoy Arrow a bit, I don't want to see Amell's version of him in the JL. It would be really beneficial for the writers for the JL to be as small as possible, Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, Flash and Aquaman.

No, just no. A liberal Green Arrow could work in the DCCU but not the CW version of him. Seriously Stephen Amell is really such a douche if he keeps on talking about being in a potential Justice League movie. And besides the DC comic universe is a huge multiverse which works for it, so keep the movie and TV universe separate, you can already see Marvel's doing a very good job with theirs.

I would but that means we get the Barry from the show too. I like Barry in the show from what I've seen but unless he bulks up or does something that makes him look more like a flash.

Oh my God, no.

I love Arrow for what it is, but I would NEVER want it to connect to a DCCU (if that's still happening :P). The CW has put it's stamp on Arrow and in no way should that stamp be included in something as royal as MoS.

Amell's acting is bad, hasn't improved at all. As I've said before, he's great as GA, but not Oliver Queen. The Batman lore they've included in the show could also be 100% better than what has been shown. The League of Assassins have been pretty corny, same with Canary. Amell actually said a few days ago that the writers and actors on the show aren't just playing their Television counterparts, their playing their characters as "perfect" as they can so WB can consider them - I admit, I chuckled a little.

Also, I still don't like Gustin as Flash - maybe people think he's good now, but on film next to Cavill and Affleck...? No, just... No. I don't know why but it seems like some people want to hand him an Emmy :/

I'd rather keep shows and movies in their own universe because then you can have more variety of interpretations of characters and more control of continuity. I'd rather see CW create a tv series based universe. Hopefully if Flash is successful, it can happen.

I would love to see Green Arrow in the Justice League movie or in the DC Cinematic Universe as a whole but I don't want Stephen Amell.So far for two season he hasn't impressed me or even proven to me that he can ever be a good actor and he is that type of an actor that seems to be part of shows like CW's Arrow which are a little bit like soap operas to me.

No. Then I might get two live action Slades running around instead of just one. That can be said for everything else being shown in the Arrow-verse as well (i.e. 2 Merlyns, 2 GAs, 2 Cyrus Golds, 2 dead shots, 2 Suicide Squads).

Plus I'd rather the DCCU have its own storyline and plot instead of following Arrow's already set plot.

I know the fans are going to be divided on this one

As much as I love Arrow, I think the movie version should be separate from the show. But it would be cool if they incorporated some of the things from the show-maybe the costume?

At first I thought it would be awesome, but now Arrow just needs to be in it's own universe. Lucky Steven Amell already said it won't happen.

DCCU should have it's own Green Arrow, I would love to see GA have to work for it like in the new 52 lol

IDK, as much as I like Arrow, the dude is pretty much Batman but with the no kill rule removed. I'd rather have a Green Arrow like the way he acted in the Animated Series.

DCCU already has its own Batman. Green Arrow in the DCCU needs to be more like the comic GA.

The Arrow universe really doesn't match up with the Man of Steel film in terms of writing style.

CW shows should just stay inside their own universe.

I like my Green Arrow snarky and tossing out jokes, with a goatee, firing boxing glove arrows on occasion.

@speckoh: Katie was a terrible Canary anyway. I feel like people were more attached to the identity than the actor which is fine, but losing her and posdibly having Caity as BC is a much better alternative.
