Arrow's had a lot of guest stars this year. So what did its star have to say about a rumor that the biggest one yet could be on the way?

The second season of the hit CW superhero series has already seen the arrival in Starling City of DC Comics standards like Black Canary, the League of Assassins, Solomon Grundy (kinda) and, of course, the Flash, but rumor has it the show could have some even bigger tricks up its sleeve in the second half of season two. 

The rumors began when the Arrow plot summary page on IMDB added this one-sentence synopsis for the 21st episode of season two:

"Oliver gets a business opportunity from a famous billionaire in the neighboring Gotham City." 

Wow. So, if that's true, it could mean that Bruce Wayne himself, who we've always considered too big for the small screen at the moment, could make an appearance on Arrow. Heck, maybe Ben Affleck would even play him. That's big news for the Arrow-verse, right? Well, it would be, if it were real.

When fans started talking about the synopsis on his official Facebook page, Oliver Queen himself, Stephen Amell, quickly shot the rumor down.


That's it. No "maybe" or "watch and see" out of Amell. Just "no." The description has also since been removed from IMDB.

It's not surprising, though. Batman's got his own big things in the works, so a stop off on Arrow, even without his cape and cowl, has always seemed a little out of reach. Still, there are likely plenty more thrilling DC Comics characters on their way to the series. We'll find out who when Arrow returns on Jan. 15.
