- Did Stephen Amell confirm Flashpoint?? (Date: xx June
Stephen Amell said "sure" in response to a question about
Flashpoint impacting Arrow, adding "you bet" when someone followed
up by asking, "majorly?" Needless to say, that's all pretty vague,
but with the internet being what it is, it predictably didn't take
long for his comments to be turned into the actor confirming that
the events of The Flash would end up having an affect on Arrow.
Now, Amell has taken to Facebook to make it clear that Arrow
will NOT definitely be affected by Flashpoint in a major way,
stating: "Actually I sarcastically said "sure"... And then I
seriously said, "I have no idea whatsoever"

At Heroes & Villains FanFest in New Jersey, Amell shared his
thoughts on Olicity: “I was chatting with a couple of fans earlier
and they were saying there hasn’t been a lot of positivity and
reassuring notions when it comes to Oliver and Felicity’s
relationship,” he said. “I think that it’s important to remember
that relationships on the show don’t have to be only defined by
romance. Oliver and Felicity could have a wonderful, fulfilling,
dynamic relationship and not be together, right?”
