On The CW’s Arrow, Stephen Amell plays a butt-kicking vigilante who takes on everyone from assassins to gangsters to clean up the streets of Star City. But he’s not really a superhero. Y’all get that, right?
One zealous fan apparently had a problem separating fact from fiction, and head-butted Amell in an effort to provoke him into a fight. According to the actor, the man said he wanted to “fight the Green Arrow,” and thought a head butt would somehow inspire the actor to … shoot him in the leg with an arrow? Along with playing a superhero, Amell has also dabbled in professional wrestling, so he can certainly hold his own.
But Amell thankfully kept a cool head through it all and declined to kill the man (because we all know the Green Arrow would’ve mopped the floor with that dude, right?).
More than anything, it begs the question: If this guy is actually a fan of Arrow, why on Earth would he try to pick a fight? Has he not seen this man make light work of everything from Ra's al Ghul, to a salmon ladder?
