Big things are in store for Arrow. Recently, star Stephen Amell teased The CW TV show’s upcoming homage to Smallville, ComicBook reports.
A DC Comics drama, Arrow stars Amell as Oliver Queen, a billionaire playboy who becomes a vigilante after a violent shipwreck. The cast also includes Colin Donnell, Katie Cassidy, David Ramsey, Willa Holland, Susanna Thompson, and Paul Blackthorne.
During a recent Facebook livestream, Amell revealed there will be a big treat for Smallville fans in Arrow‘s upcoming “Elseworlds” crossover:
It is not a Smallville reunion, although I think it becomes pretty clear in the promos for the crossover that there are Smallville elements, at least, in terms of location. And if you’re a fan of Smallville, and I have no idea if they’re going to keep this in the final cut, but there’s a treat in there that, I swear. Full disclosure, I’ve never seen an episode of Smallvillebefore, sorry! I wasn’t that into comic book TV shows when I grew up. I’ve since seen a couple, for very obvious reasons. But as someone who wasn’t a diehard fan of Smallville, this moment made me jump out of my seat. If you’re a fan of Smallville, you may want to put down rubber sheets or something like that. Because, quite frankly, you might piss you pants.”
The big Arrow crossover event begins on The CW on December 9th at 8 p.m. ET/PT with The Flash.
