It was only a short time ago that actor Stephen Amell who plays Oliver Queen aka The Green Arrow, sent this notice out to the Internet regarding his future and the status of The CW Network’s hit show “Arrow”. Read on…
Playing Oliver Queen has been the greatest professional experience of my life… but you can’t be a vigilante forever.
Arrow will return for a final run of 10 episodes this Fall.
There’s so much to say… for now I just want to say thank you.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Overall I have to say that the news saddens me because Amell does a great job in the role. I’ve been watching the show religiously since Season 2 was running, but I did this after catching the first season On Demand. Initially I had missed it and some of my fellow geek-minded friends suggested that I give it a look. Now my DVR catches every new episode of this and the other DC Comics superhero shows in the event I am out and about doing something in the music scene for this here website. Of course this isn’t over yet and who knows if the actor and the network will have a change of heart. We had initially expected the upcoming “Agents Of SHIELD” to be the last but it was renewed for a seventh season when no one really expected that to be the case. What do you readers think about this news? Do you think its time for “Arrow” to put his bow and quiver into the display case and be annexed in the Flash Museum? Chime in down below in the comments section. Personally speaking, I had always hoped that Amell would somehow make an appearance in that “Justice League” film but they never thought that smart and you all know how good that film was. Sigh. Alright onto the rest of the stuff. Back soon of course.
Update: As assorted members of the cast responded to the news in their own Twitter updates, I’ve added several for the diehard fans to respond to or retweet to their own accounts. Let’s go….
