John Barrowman who plays Malcolm Merlyn the arc nemesis and villain to CW’s Arrow and Legends of Tommorow will exit the universe according to the actor’s statement at the Planet Comicon Kansas City this weekend. The report comes courtesy of Screenrant who cited Pilar Pedraza as their source.
Details of the actor’s exit are relatively unknown and more news is expected to come up in the following days, but it could be for a number of reasons. Perhaps his contract with the T.V station is over or it might be that the actor wants to move on to other projects. Whichever way, it’ll be quite interesting to see how the writers pen his exit from the universe.
