For those not lucky enough to attend this week’s Comic-Con, you got a second chance to see Arrow’s Stephen Amell as earlier today tickets went on sale for “A Conversation with Stephen Amell” set for Sunday, July 27th at 9am PST taking place outside of Comic-Con at Petco Park.
The only problem is that tickets sold out just as soon as they went on sale, and judging from the comments, fans aren’t too happy.
The good news is that you will not miss the panel as Stephen Amell has taken to his Facebook page to calm the masses by stating the event will be streamed live for the world to see.
“I’m doing a Nerd HQ Panel Sunday morning at 9 am. Because if you’re going to get up early on a Sunday morning, I’M A GREAT REASON!!!”
Added in the comments:
Important note… This panel will live stream via the internet to all of planet earth.
Last week, Warner Bros. Entertainment unveiled all of their plans for the upcoming San Diego Comic-Con which includes the “Night of DC Entertainment,” an event on Saturday July 26 that will feature the pilots for “Gotham,” “The Flash,” and footage from the third season of “Arrow” as well as NBC’s “Constantine.” Now, it has been revealed that Oliver Queen himself Stephen Amell will preside over the events and serve as the Master of Ceremonies. You can read the full press release on the announcement below.
While it may be possible to throw a great party without the assistance and backing of a billionaire playboy, Warner Bros. Television (WBTV) and DC Entertainment (DCE) are taking no chances, with Starling City’s favorite vigilante-turned-hero stepping out of the shadows and into the limelight, temporarily putting down his bow in favor of picking up a mic: Arrow star Stephen Amell (Twitter: @amellywood) has been tapped to serve as master of ceremonies when Warner Bros. Television Presents A Night of DC Entertainment on Saturday night, July 26, at Comic-Con 2014.
As previously announced, WBTV and DC Entertainment are teaming up for a three-hour (8:00–11:00 p.m.) special event in Hall H designed for DC Comics fans and featuring some of DC Comics’ greatest characters. Amell will preside over the world premiere screening of Gotham and the complete pilot screening of The Flash, and will give fans a look at footage from the Constantine pilot and a sneak peek at season three of Arrow. He will also introduce select stars and producers from each of the four series.
In “Arrow,” Stephen Amell plays Oliver Queen, who returned home to Starling City after being gone for five years, during which time he suffered unimaginable ordeals. With a mysterious agenda and armed with a new set of skills, Oliver moonlights as the Arrow, a crime-fighting hero looking to clean up the streets of his city. Joined by his team — John Diggle (David Ramsey), Felicity Smoak (Emily Bett Rickards) and Roy Harper (Colton Haynes) — Oliver protects the people he loves, becoming a beacon of hope for the city’s most vulnerable, and a weapon of justice against those who prey upon them. Arrow returns for season three on October 8, airing Wednesdays at 8/7c on The CW.
Seemingly ever since Arrow debuted a few years ago, many have called for Stephen Amell, the on-screen Oliver Queen, to be transitioned to the big screen in some fashion. When DC and Warner Brothers announced Batman V Superman and the addition of certain familiar DC characters, some fans hoped that Amell’s Emerald Archer may make his cinematic bow. Added to this, the actor has often sent out messages on social media that some fans take as indicators of Amell’s Ollie appearing in Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice or 2017?s Justice League. In addition to this, Amell and the Arrow crew will be heading to San Diego Comic-Con later this month, where they’ve confirmed a big announcement will take place. For those hoping that the announcement will be the Arrow featuring in Batman V Superman, prepare to be disappointed.
Taking to his Facebook account, Amell said, “I appreciate all the support and enthusiasm, but not everything I post is a cryptic indicator that I’m going to be in Batman V Superman. I’m not going to be in Batman V Superman.”
As an optimist, he only mentioned Batman V Superman, not its follow-up, Justice League. A guy can hope, right? All things aside, Amell has grown into the Oliver Queen/Arrow role and now wears that character like a second skin. Now whilst I’d be happy to see the character move to the big screen, I’m more than happy seeing his story unravel on episodic television. And, if I’m perfectly honest, I think I’d much rather an Arrow standalone movie than getting him involved with the current DC cinematic world.
Now we wait for Comic-Con and just what this big Arrow announcement will be. Here’s hoping for Nightwing…
With three weeks until he starts filming season 3 of the CW’s Arrow, Stephen Amell is hitting the gym hard, and we’re all reaping the benefits, really, as he continues to post his “Superhero Workout” videos on his Facebook page and YouTube channel.
Please bring back Battle of the Network Stars? Not with reality stars (or anyone who’d compete on any of the existing celeb reality competition series, sorry), but talented, likable actors with current shows who are good-humored enough to face off for charity.
Besides teasing who might appear on the upcoming third season of Arrow, star Stephen Amell at Phoenix Comic Con this weekend addressed the always-looming question of whether he and The Flash star Grant Gustin could appear in the forthcoming, Zack Snyder-directed Justice League movie.
“The guy that I train with at Tempest was actually just up there shooting Batman V Superman and he told me secrets,” teased Amell.
To the question itself, he said, “You know what? I don’t know. I think the people that watched the Flash pilot that have seen it and saw the scene where Grant and I interact — and he’s not even in his costume — a lot of people were like, ‘that feels like the Justice League.’ And I thought it felt like the Justice League, too. I don’t know if we’ll eventually cross over into the movies but that being said, we don’t need to. The important part is that Arrow and The Flash are able to stand on their own and be appreciated for what they are and the medium that they are in.”
He added, “If they wanted me to be in the Justice League movie and it worked out, that would certainly be something that I would be interested in. That being said, my most important and crucial priority is making [Arrow] Season Three better than Season Two.”
He had earlier said that if he could have his cousin Robbie Amell appear as Bruce Wayne on the series, that he pictured it as a quick “Hey Bruce, how are you?” kind of thing, not with Robbie in the batsuit, and that he was reasonably sure that he could convince his cousin to do such a cameo for free.

Sure, it’s one thing to see someone pull off spectacular superheroic moves in a finished scene that’s been choreographed, edited, and put through post production. But what if an actor who plays a superhero could do all that as his regular workout?
Well, Stephen Amell, who plays Oliver Queen on Arrow, posted this video yesterday of his first workout as prep for Season 3 of the series, which starts filming in just about a month. Does it have anything to do with the show directly? No, no it doesn’t. Is it an impressive piece of work to watch and make you feel guilty for that extra bite of chocolate cake last night when you’re about a week behind on your workouts? Okay, maybe that part got a little personal. Check it out below, and we’ll see you at the gym.
