Anyone who follows the CW's [Arrow](series:720988) knows well of its' lead actor, Stephen Amell, and his almost uncontrollable fanboying when it comes to comics and scifi. With that said, it wasn't exceptionally surprising that the actor - who is known for taking cues from his fans and interacting heavily with them on the daily - decided to take one fan's advice and ignite the spark of Lightsaber Saturdays, where Arrow fans are invited to photoshop lightsabers into scenes from the hit show.
The weekly event brought out the best of the fandom's photoshop skills, but what debuted alongside it was just as awesome: a fan-made video depicting the Arrow universe with ancient weapons from a galaxy far, far away.
Spoilers for the latest season of Arrow, as something pretty crazy happens!
Ra's Al Ghul trains the League of Assassins, who have obviously not built their own lightsabers at all, until he's given some distressing news regarding the Arrow, Oliver Queen. The villain then moves to confront our hero, and an epic, shirtless lightsaber duel ensues.
The video, by creator Dave Jones, isn't the first of it's kind, either. In fact, it's the third installment of his incredible edits, which reflect scenes from previous episodes of Arrow.
And here is the first:
The potential for future edits is limitless, given that Arrow doesn't seem like it's facing cancellation in the near or distant future. Along with all of these incredible edits, the influx of photoshopped pictures was incredible. Here are a few highlights.
