Amell recently discussed the idea of ​​a movie while appearing on the Geek House Show.

Asked if he’d like to be a part of the DCEU and whether he’d like to play the Green Arrow or another character, he replied: ‘If I’m going to be a part of the DCEU, I’d probably just want to play the Green Arrow there.’

He elaborated, ‘I mean, are they still broken up? Didn’t we have two Flashes in the Arrowverse at one point? So I don’t know. We’ll see. Whatever they want.

The father-of-two then went on to say, ‘I would say if I had to pick one, I’d pick my own movie… just because there are so many things I selfishly want to do with Arrow that we couldn’t necessarily do on TV.’

The Arrowverse was a shared universe centered on several interconnected television series based on DC Comics superhero characters, airing primarily on The CW.

Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl, Legends of Tomorrow, Black Lightning, and Batwoman were all in-universe shows, which was why characters could carry over from one show to another.

The last returning cast member is Sendhil Ramamurthy as Ramsey Rosso/Bloodwork. He was a recurring guest star on Season 6 of The Flash.

“Since Sendhil gave such a brilliant and unforgettable performance as the tortured Ramsey Rosso in Season 6, we’ve been looking for a way to bring him back,” said Eric.

“We also knew that we wanted Ramsey to be a part of The Flash’s final run. Thankfully, everything fell into place, and now the return of the villainous Bloodwork will kick off one of The Flash’s craziest and most exciting adventures yet.’

Along with the casting announcement, The CW also released the final season poster on the show’s Instagram account.

The poster featured a shot of the Flash’s boots with lightning covering them and surrounding them were chunks of charred concrete. Next to the boots were the words ‘The Final Run’.

The caption read: ‘Balance will need to be restored. The final season of #TheFlash begins Wednesday, February 8th on The CW! #TheFinalRun.’
