Ever since Arrow‘s seventh season finale aired this past May, we’ve known it to be an absolute certainty that Oliver Queen will die during the “Crisis on Infinite Earths” crossover event. When it comes to specifics, however, we’re just going to have to tune in to find out how it all goes down.
If we can bank on anything, it’s that Ollie will likely die a hero’s death. After all, would you expect anything less from the guy whom we have to thank for the entire Arrowverse even being around? I highly doubt he’s going to get eaten by T-Rex while sitting on the toilet like that dude in Jurassic Park, or something equally inconsequential.
Seemingly backing up the vaguest of suspicions is that of actor Stephen Amell himself, who posted a rather amusing meme on Twitter. Seen below, the bloodied Emerald Archer’s head has been placed atop Iron Man’s body from Avengers: Endgame‘s unforgettable third act.
If you’ll recall, Tony Stark gave his life so that he may destroy Thanos and his forces in the recent Marvel blockbuster. Though I think it’s a stretch to say Oliver’s dying words will be “I am Iron Man,” it’s not crazy to assume he’ll find himself placed in a similar position when it comes time to dispatch the Anti-Monitor.
