A lot of people online seem to expect that Green Arrow would fill the role of Batman in this story, with Robert Queen rather than Oliver; that’s possible, perhaps, particularly given that it wouldn’t require Stephen Amell to stop filming Arrow. Personally, however, I’d prefer it if Colin Donnell was brought in to guest star as an alternate Tommy Merlyn who took up the mantle of the Green Arrow. It’d have a far greater emotional resonance for the audience, I believe, given that we already know and have a connection with Tommy – one we don’t have with Robert Queen, who never really featured in particular depth before.
Another Yahoo article; I’ve been writing a lot of them for the past few weeks. This time it’s all about the upcoming Flashpoint arc over on The Flash; my thoughts, my expectations, and indeed to an extent my reservations.
