Could Hal Jordan be headed to Arrow? Not likely, says co-showrunner Marc Guggenheim.

When asked by The Hollywood Reporter  about whether Diggle could take up the mantle of the Green Lantern, Guggenheim said he would not, and also denied the possibility that Hal Jordan might appear. 

"They announced the Green Lantern Corps movie, and I’d be surprised if it didn’t include Hal Jordan," said Guggenheim. "It would be great but I doubt it very much.”

Of course, there have been several Easter eggs that allude to Jordan in CW's DCTV universe, notably in The Flash where a Ferris Air sign appeared, and reference was made to a "test pilot that disappeared." Still, if Guggenheim's doubts are true, we won't be getting a "Hard Traveling Heroes" episode anytime soon.

HOWARD STERN Says He Wanted to Make an ANT-MAN Movie

While interviewing Ant-Man star Paul Rudd on his radio show (as reported by HitFix), radio shockjock Howard Stern revealed that he tried to make an Ant-Man movie almost 15 years ago.

"I was a huge Ant-Man [fan]. In fact, I was telling Robin [Quivers] earlier in the morning, about 15 years ago I had a meeting with Marvel. I tried to buy the rights to Ant-Man because I said that's a cool franchise. I really tried, and I met with some of their dudes."

Stern did not reveal his plans for the film, or whether he had any intention of starring in it, had it been made. Stern fans will remember, however, that Stern did portray a superhero - "Fartman," an obscure character from National Lampoon magazine. 

Stern appeared as Fartman at the 1992 MTV Music Awards, an appearance he re-enacted in his 1997 biopic Private Parts. Like his experience with Ant-Man, Stern attempted to make a Fartman movie, but it never came to fruition. However, a short film entitled Fartman: Caught In A Tight Ass did appear on Howard TV in 2006.
