At a recent Salt Lake City Comic-Con, Amell spoke about his feelings on the DC Extended Universe films and DCTV shows. He addressed queries about someone else playing his TV character in the DCEU movies.
“I do not have a right to Oliver Queen. Someone played it before me, someone voiced it before me, somebody will play him after me. I don’t believe there are plans for Oliver Queen in the DCEU based on things people have told me, but I would not be upset if that changed at all,” he said.
Amell plays the role of Oliver Queen/Green Arrow in the hit DC and Warner Bros show on the CW Network.

Amell was also challenged at the conference in Utah to appear in another show – the American Ninja Warriorr. In response, he expressed interest of joining the show on his Facebook and Twitter accounts.
Hey @ninjawarrior – I would like to compete on your show in 2017.

Is Arrow Season 5 going to be Amell’s last season?
Certainly not, but the actor is known to not back down on challenges. It can be recalled that Amell teamed up with Neville to beat Stardust and King Barrett in WWE Summer Slam last year.
Amell called out to American Ninja Warrior on social media, saying he wants to join the show. Fans are excited at the prospect that the actor’s salmon ladder skills will be tested in the show.
American Ninja Warrior Matt Iseman responded to Amell’s wish and made a small request of his own. Amell further teased by signaling that the challenge has just begun.
We accept. Can we borrow the Arrow Cave for the City Finals? https://t.co/4xwcO8RJC9

NBC’s American Ninja Warrior is a sports entertainment show where contestants try to complete in challenging obstacles to bring home the $1 million grand prize.
Back in 2014 during the San Diego Comic-Con, Amell revealed that America Ninja Warrior had reached out to his manager. The show apparently asked if he would like to compete in ANW. At that time, Amell turned down the opportunity due to a lack of time to train for the show. The actor, however, left the door open for future appearance in ANW.
Arrow Season 5 premieres on Wednesday (October 5) at CW.
