POLL: Stephen Amell In Arrow: What Do You Think?

Craig Byrne January 31, 2012 4

Fan reaction since the casting of Stephen Amell as the lead, Oliver Queen, in The CW’s Arrow has ranged from very excited — people remembering him from past roles or thinking he looks the part — to disappointed, mostly those who were holding out hope for Justin Hartley to reprise his Smallville role. There might have also been a few people who haven’t forgiven Amell for when his character, Brady, shot Caroline in The Vampire Diaries. (It’s acting – don’t worry, Stephen Amell is not a vampire-shooter… that we know of)

So what do you think? Does he have what it takes? Are you open to accepting a new Oliver Queen in your lives? Vote below, and as always, please feel free to come by our Arrow forum thread at KSiteTV.

Hopefully just the three choices will be enough, and will be inclusive of everything. You can see the current progress of voting below, too!

    Forget Justin (he had his chance), forget Stephen (thats no Green Arrow, how in the world…..).

    I want WILSON BETHEL in this role, make it happen CW.

      Strangely, I always thought Wilson Bethel would be perfect for Hawkeye of the Avengers, but not Green Arrow. It would be cool to see him as SOME comic book archer!

    Hawkeye? that would do too. If Wilson can’t be Arrow, he would do as Speedy/Red Arrow, if they need to cast that character one day.

    Whatever character I want him in this show. CW!, My first choice is still Arrow though.

    Good luck to Stephen.

    I thought I could get used to this. I want Justin as GA that is all.
