The #Dc Extended Universe (DCEU) has been looking for an actor to play #Green Arrow, a.k.a. Oliver Queen. #Charlie Hunnam's name has cropped up for a while now as many saw his similarities with the character.

When Charlie Hunnam was first asked about becoming Green Arrow for DCEU, he initially shot it down. Speaking to Yahoo last March, Hunnam said he didn't grow up reading comic books so he wasn't familiar with the character. He also said he has no desire to play a superhero as an actor.

Changing tunes

But in a new interview while promoting his latest flick "King Arthur: Legend of the Sword," Charlie Hunnam sounded like he changed his mind about becoming Green Arrow.

While he still professed he has no inkling about the comic book hero or his alter ego, billionaire Oliver Queen, the actor was now more open to playing him in the movies.

"Well c'mon, DC. What's up?!" Hunnam said. "DC, give me a call," he added. Watch the interview in the link below, as tweeted by DCEU.

Who's in DCEU?

DC and Warner Bros. share a superhero universe. In June, fans will get to watch "Wonder Woman" starring Gal Gadot at the movies. DCEU will also screen the highly anticipated first part of the "Justice League" movie this fall starring Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, and Gadot.

Then, the solo "Aquaman" film with Jason Momoa will run next year, while several DCEU movie projects are still being put together featuring Cyborg and The Flash. Fans speculate a potential Green Arrow's solo movie could also be in the cards.

Green Arrow, however, has yet to be introduced in DCEU but the studio is not in a rush. Presumably, the character could appear in the second part "Justice League," which has no slated theater date for now.

On television, Green Arrow's story has been receiving much success via "Arrow" on The CW. The show is almost done with its fifth season, where Stephen Amell plays the lead. DCEU, however, is different from the TV universe, which is why fans want Charlie Hunnam to play the part on the big screen.

Working with Warner Bros

It's still unclear if DC will respond to Charlie Hunnam's recent message. What's looking more like a possibility would be the actor working with Warner Bros. for the long-term.

Reports say Warner Bros. actually plans on doing six installments of "King Arthur." The movie has so far raked $43.8 million at the box office following its release last May 12. The film also stars Jude Law, Eric Bana, Annabelle Wallis and Astrid Berges-Frisbey. Watch the trailer below.
