The outgoing DC superhero Stephen Amell reacts to the incoming new Dark Knight, Batman Robert Pattinson.
"If you wanna launch a DC Franchise that has some legs, the smokey eye look is a good jumping off point," Amell tweeted.
Of course, Stephen Amell is referring to his Arrow series that debuted on The CW network back in Oct. 2012 and aired for eight seasons that led to the creation of the Arrowverse and shows such as The Flash, Supergirl, Legends of Tomorrow, Black Lightning, and Batwoman.
Amell's character, Oliver Queen, often sported a similar look to Pattinson's Batman, which fans note in the tweets found below.
