Old Green Arrow Revealed in New Legends of Tomorrow Images

Old Green Arrow Revealed in New Legends of Tomorrow Images

Plus the Arrival of Connor Hawke...

DC's Legends of Tomorrow is kicking comicbook translations on the small screen up a notch with a full on superhero team on show and with this latest piece of news we're falling in love with the show even more! Stephen Amell has revealed these new images of his upcoming appearance in Legends and of course he's in full Green Arrow but that's not all, the guy is old! Plus there's a goatee! Well more a full on beard but noen the less this look is all kinds of awesome and more than a little reminiscent of Oliver Queen's look in The Dark Knight Returns graphic novel by Frank Miller, I wonder if he's bald under that hood?



“Every once and a while, we do an episode where the 10-year-old me has to pinch himself,” said executive producer Marc Guggenheim on Old Man Oliver’s upcoming appearance. “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.”
 
The episode promises to be seriously epic and we can't wait to see how they introduce Connor who had a great stint as Green Arrow in the comics a little over a decade ago.
