‘He Punched Ezra Miller, He’s Good’: Fans Cite Bizarre Reason For Supporting Elvis Star Austin Butler as Green Arrow

Green Arrow is one of DC’s most popular characters. The hooded superhero is no doubt a fan-favourite. Stephen Amell played the character for years in the CW hit show Arrow, which aired from 2012 to 2020. The show paved the way for other CW shows such as The Flash, Supergirl, Legends of Tomorrow, Black Lightning and even Superman & Lois despite the fact that the show is not a part of the Arrowverse Earth-Prime. Amell’s version of the character was well-loved, but now it seems like Austin Butler may be taking up the mantle.

Rumours have been going around about the possible entry of Green Arrow to the DCEU, and it seems like Warner Bros. Discovery is considering Elvis star Austin Butler for the role. The actor is known for his work in films such as Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, Aliens in the Attic, Sharpay’s Fabulous Adventure and The Intruders.

Green Arrow is rumoured to make his DCEU debut in the upcoming Black Canary solo movie. Black Canary is another iconic DC character that was introduced in the DCEU in the 2020 film, Birds of Prey. The film’s version of the character was very different from the CW show.

In the CW’s version, Laurel Lance was an attorney who had no powers but used a sonic device to make the Canary cry. Dinah Drake succeeded her after her death. Dinah was a meta human, and she possessed the powers of super-sonic screaming. In the DCEU film, the character’s name is Dinah Lance, and she is a cabaret singer and personal driver for Roman Sionis. The character is played by Jurnee Smollett and possesses super-sonic powers.

Fans have taken to Twitter to react to the rumours of Austin Butler playing the Green Arrow.

Hopefully, Warner Bros. Discovery will make a wise decision when choosing the actor since they have already lost The Flash actor, Ezra Miller, due to their endless legal troubles.
