As previously reported, Oliver Queen/Green Arrow (Stephen Amell) and Barry Allen/ The Flash (Grant Gustin) are set to appear as their future selves in DC’s Legends of Tomorrow.
Now executive producer Marc Guggenheim, has confirmed that Oliver as the Green Arrow will in fact appear with a goatee and missing his left arm, like in the comic book Dark Knight Returns.
“Every once and a while, we do an episode where the 10-year-old me has to pinch himself,” executive producer Marc Guggenheim says. “We’re not only introducing our version of Connor Hawke to our universe, we’re going to meet the 2046 version of Oliver Queen, and Stephen Amell is going to be reprising his role from Arrow. As an added bonus to comic-book fans, Oliver is missing his left arm and will be sporting a goatee, in a nod to the character’s appearance in the seminal Dark Knight Returns. We think this episode features some of the coolest things we’ve ever done.”
