'Crisis on Infinite Earths': Stephen Amell's tweet sparks speculation, may play Spectre in multiverse-shattering battle
The site Heroic Hollywood has confirmed that the archer will be taking on the mantle in addition to playing Oliver Queen, aka The Green Arrow
There has been a steady stream of updates pouring in for the upcoming 'Crisis on Infinite Earths' and Stephen Amell's latest tweet has fuelled speculations that the actor might also be reprising the role of Spectre in the upcoming 'Crisis.' This will be in addition to him playing Oliver Queen, aka the Green Arrow. The story was apparently teased by Amell in a tweet that read: "Trying to relax after an amazing weekend. The Spectre of the crossover still looms large.”
Heroic Hollywood though has confirmed that the archer will be taking on the mantle. The Spectre is an old character in the DC Universe. According to Comicbook's description, the Spectre is "divine wrath personified, with some definite Judeo-Christian aspects to his backstory and characterization. The Spectre, also, is a powerful force that needs to be tethered to a human."
According to the character's history, a few humans have hosted the Spectre and one of them was former Gotham cop, Jim Corrigan. He played the Spectre for decades. The other notable character was Hal Jordan's Green Lantern. It is still unclear how the Arrowverse manages to fit in Amell as the Spectre (provided the info of him playing the character is not a rumor).
