Some fans may be disappointed by the news that Green Arrow will, in fact, not be appearing but it’s safe to say an even larger contingent of DC fans can now breathe a sigh of relief.

For what it’s worth, Gunn made a follow-up tweet expressing his love for Green Arrow, explaining that when he was a kid, he’d always wanted to be him when he and his friends pretended to be the Justice League.
