The bells are ringing for a second round, as Stephen Amell will come face to face with his wrestling buddy Stardust (a.k.a. Cody Rhodes) in Arrow Season 5!
Some days we feel like we could earn a lot of money placing bets that there'll be a new casting announcement for Arrow every day, because recently it really hasn't felt like a gamble! The most recent casting announcement was that Tyler Ritter had joined the Arrow Season 5 cast as a new SCPD detective, and while there's surely more announcements about recurring roles to come, it's safe to say we'll also be getting a few guest stars. And this latest guest star will be quite significant to Stephen Amell mega-fans or followers of WWE, as Stephen Amell's wrestling buddy Stardust will appear in an episode of the show! Stephen Amell tackled the rumours while he was at Heroes & Villains Fan Fest this past week, and confirmed that Stardust would indeed be appearing.
While Cody Rhodes (a.k.a. Stardust) was coy over what role he'd be playing, ComingSoon.net reported that Rhodes said: "You can probably expect Stephen and I to get into another fight." So will Rhodes be playing a villain, or a vigilante that the Green Arrow comes to blows with? There's certainly been a lot of new vigilantes cast recently (Arrow Season 5 DA Adrian Chase is also set to be a vigilante), so Stardust would fit right in with his wrestling costume that looks like its been taken straight out of a comic book. Stephen Amell and Cody Rhodes have had a fake feud over the course of their friendship which resulted in Amell fighting in a WWE match against him as the Green Arrow, so it looks like Arrow Season 5 will serve as the battleground for Round Two! Are you excited to see Stephen Amell and Stardust bring their feud onto Arrow?
