Denver Comic Con announced today that actor Stephen Amell will appear at the convention on Saturday, June 14, 2014. Amell stars in CW’s hit television show “Arrow” as Green Arrow/Oliver Queen.
“Amell’s Green Arrow is a shining example of how well DC comics is bringing its characters to television,” said Dr. Christina Angel, DCC convention director. “’Arrow’ is a hugely popular show; we’re honored to have Stephen in Denver.”
The premiere of “Arrow” in 2012 drew more than four million viewers, making it the CW’s most watched program in more than three years. The show is a critical success and continues to be one of the most watched shows on the network. Prior to “Arrow,” Amell appeared in “The Vampire Diaries,” as a series regular, on the third season of HBO’s “Hung,” had recurring roles on Fox’s comedy “New Girl” opposite Zooey Deschanel, as well as a romantic arc with Amy Brenneman as EMT “Scottie” on ABC’s “Private Practice.”
