Major Arrow Star Done? – Jon Barrowman has formally announced on his Instagram account that he was done with the “Arrowverse”. It appears that the decision was made by the executive producers of the four series to move on from the Malcolm Merlyn character.
I am very sad to be leaving the Arrowverse. I love playing Malcolm Merlyn, and you know – that’s it really.

Anyway, I’m in Israel, I get a phone call, they tell me that they want to do a camera test – I’m like, ‘Again? Another camera test? Another almost, almost?’ And I said, ‘OK, whatever. What am I testing for? What’s the part?’ And my agent goes, ‘They didn’t tell you?’ And I’m like, ‘No.’ So no one knows what I’m going to be.
He was like, ‘I don’t know if you have this character in Israel, if she’s big or not, but did you ever hear about Wonder Woman?’ And I was like [mimes fainting].
