#8 Green Arrow
While we’re getting the television series of the Emerald Archer this fall, I still think a film version would be better for the character. Sure he’s kind of just a rip off of Batman, but there are few characters out there not trying to be Batman. Plus Queen has the right kind of charisma and charm that the Dark Knight doesn’t have. Ollie might be a blonde Bruce Wayne but he’s a different kind of character all together. Plus after Hawkeye in The Avengers and Katniss Everdeen in The Hunger Games, bows and arrows are kind of in.
Where this character gets tricky is how he would differentiate from Hawkeye in The Avengers. The best way would be the gimmicky/trick arrows. Sure Hawkeye had some in The Avengers but I’m talking about things like acid arrows, boomerang arrows, the handcuff arrows, EMP arrows, and even a cameo from a Kyptonite arrow. Ollie would of course take a side to the other characters in the Justice League but if he proves popular enough why couldn’t he carry his own film or films?
My pick for Green Arrow is Sons of Anarchy‘s own Charlie Hunnam. While he might not be the most well known star, the people that know who he is really love him. He’s a fantastic actor who can pull off action scenes really well and though he’s most well known for playing a rough biker, it’s obvious he has a softer streak in him. Though the grungy nastiness that he gives off as Jax Teller will come in handy when Ollie gets pissed.
