Shocking Things You Never Knew About The Arrow Star "Stephen Amell"

He’s Played Oliver Queen Outside Of Television

While mainstream audiences have come to know Stephen Amell from his portrayal of Oliver Queen on The CW’s Arrow his ability to inhabit that character exists beyond the realm of television. Amell has provided his voice to no less than two video game iterations of the Emerald Archer since taking on the hood back in 2012. First, he voiced Oliver Queen in the immensely popular video game Injustice: Gods Among Us, as a downloadable alternative to the standard Green Arrow the game provides. This version visually resembles Amell – complete with his first Arrow suit that he will soon ditch – and uses his gruff, menacing Arrow voice. The DLC allows The Arrow to fight side by side with the likes of Batman and Superman in a way that may not be possible on The CW for quite some time – if ever. The second time he voiced the character in a video game came in Lego Batman 3: Beyond Gotham, which provides a humorous spin on the character’s origins on Lian Yu. This iteration of The Arrow allowed Amell to flex his comedy chops more than Arrow had previously allowed – although Season 4 has already brought a decidedly lighter tone to Star City. With the popularity of The CW’s DC Universe on the rise, we can likely expect to see Amell lend his likeness to many more ancillary properties as time goes by.
