Rebel Moon’s Charlie Hunnam Looks Like Green Arrow & Snyder Fans Love It

The first footage from Zack Snyder’s Rebel Moon includes a look at Charlie Hunnam, and some fans are pointing out just how much he looks like Green Arrow. After making a name for himself with movies like 300 and Watchmen, Snyder turned his talents to the superhero genre, delivering Man of Steel, Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, and Zack Snyder’s Justice League. Snyder’s next project, Rebel Moon, is set to see the director take on an epic space opera, telling the story of a young woman’s attempts to amass an army to defeat a tyrannical dictator.

As part of Netflix’s 2023 Films Preview trailer, the first proper footage from Rebel Moon was revealed. The short clips include looks at characters played by Djimon Hounsou and Hunnam, the latter of which bears a striking resemblance to DC superhero Green Arrow. Some Snyder fans were quick to recognize the similarities and are now taking to Twitter to express their joy at what they perceive to be an intentional nod from the filmmaker to years of Hunnam Green Arrow fan-casting. Check out some of the tweets below:

Fans Have Wanted Hunnam To Play Green Arrow For Years

For years, Hunnam has been a popular choice when it comes to who should play Oliver Queen, aka Green Arrow. After first being featured in DC Comics over 80 years ago, Green Arrow was most recently brought to life by Stephen Amell in the CW show Arrow, which ran from 2012 to 2020. Before James Gunn and Peter Safran were brought in as the creative leadership for DC Studios last year, Hunnam started to appear in fan art as the DC hero. While Amell’s depiction of Green Arrow undoubtedly proved popular since the show ran for 8 seasons, calls for Hunnam to play the character seem to mostly be centered around the DCU movie landscape.

For a time, of course, Snyder was the defining storytelling voice of the DCU, introducing Henry Cavill’s Superman in Man of Steel and Ben Affleck’s Batman in Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice. Although Patty Jenkins’ Wonder Woman introduced Gal Gadot’s take on the hero in 2017, Snyder would eventually get to feature the character in Zack Snyder’s Justice Leaguealongside other new takes on DC heroes, including the Flash (Ezra Miller) and Cyborg (Ray Fisher). Snyder’s time within the DCU is now at a fairly definitive end, but it’s certainly possible that Green Arrow would eventually have been featured in whatever DC superhero films he had planned.
