Will Hal Jordan appear in season 2 of Arrow? Click the jump to see more.
Colton Haynes (Teen Wolf) plays as Roy Harper talks with Flicks & The City has suggested new characters to be featured on Arrow from past DC movies.
“There’s going to be some new characters, I’m sure you guys have read, that are going to be joining, some very very well known characters that have been in prior movies so I think it’s going to be exciting to see, I think it’s going to be exciting to see who they cast as those people or if they can get some of the people from the actual movies that have played them.”
Well, Haynes that was very helpful. Batman characters and Superman characters are off the table for the most part. However, there has been a lot of name-dropping of various DC Comics characters for season 2 of Arrow. Nightwing has been mentioned quite a few times, but now it seems more likely that the series co-creator Marc Guggenheim intends to plant an interesting connection between Oliver Queen’s world and the Green Lantern (2011). Here’s what Guggenheim has stated about Hal Jordan’s character on the show:
“Hal Jordan is certainly something that we’ve talked about. As with all DC characters, we have to figure out a way for those characters to fit within our Arrow universe, but when you consider the importance that Hal Jordan plays in the Green Arrow comics, it’s certainly one of those names that we’ve discussed a great deal.”
Even though Guggenheim has stated time and time again that the world of Arrow is grounded more in reality (i.e., there’s a distinct lack of beings wielding magnificent superpowered rings) the connection won’t be something like Green Lantern suddenly popping up in Starling City. More or less, we’ll see Hal Jordan talking with Oliver Queen on the show. The two characters have been iconic for years as the green partners in crime in comics. It would be awesome to see them both portrayed in live action! However, this has not been officially confirmed by CW Network. See the clip of Colton Haynes above.
