Stephen Amell Shoots Down Rumors That He’s Leaving Arrow, Reveals His Contract Status


Over the past few days a rumor that Stephen Amell would be leaving “Arrow” sometime in the not too distant has been making the rounds on social media. Amell, never one to shy away from rumors and speculation took to Facebook to put the rumor to rest. He confirmed that his contract with the show runs through 2019 but also noted that the show might not go on that long. He posted the following:

“Facebook… I keep reading that I’m leaving Arrow. I’m not. I have a contract that runs through 2019. At least. Now… That doesn’t mean Arrow will run that long, but if it does… I’ll be here. Any other questions I can answer?”

He also touched on rumors that he might be jumping ship to work with Marvel. Amell mentioned there have been no offers coming his way on Marvel’s behalf as of right now.

“That’s another one of those absolutely preposterous rumors. Here’s the deal: I’m an actor. I like acting roles. Because an actor tends to be defined by not being unemployed. So if a role came up… I would always listen. Does that include Marvel characters? Of course it does. Have there been any offers, auditions, or even general meetings…? No.” Amell said.

There you have it folks, Stephen Amell will be playing Oliver Queen for a few more years at least.
