Stephen Amell has already begun hyping up the upcoming season 5, he said in a live facebook chat “If the premiere is any indication, Arrow is going to be f**king mean this year, and that’s really exciting.” He hinted at a vicious, violent fighting scene which could be the best in the history of superhero TV shows (right now my favorite is the Daredevil fight sequence).
Anyways, it seems that Arrow has brought its house in order particularly after the debacle of season 4 finale. The show has made a series of new castings, a new vigilante will be taking to the streets of Star city, a “reckless ex-marine turned vigilante.” who is none other than Wild Dog (1980’s cult-classic vigilante hero), an alias of an former US Marine, ex-football star Jack Wheeler who lived a normal life in Quad cities until his girlfriend is assassinated by contract killers. A new character known as Adrian Chase will be introduced into the show, he is a new District Attorney of Star city, his alter-ego is “The Vigilante” who first appeared in 1983 New Teen Titans Annual # 2. He lost his family at the hands of mobsters, and he dispensed justice to them in his own way. Many fans are comparing him with Marvels’ “The Punisher”. Madison McLaughlin will be reprising her role as a troubled teen Evelyn, but this time, she will not impersonate Black Canary instead forge her own identity as a masked archer known as Artemis.
The show has recently added Carly Hope as the Susan Williams (journalist from Coast City). It definitely raised the hopes of millions of DC fans who would like to see Hell Jordan onscreen. Coast city is the hometown of Green Lantern and Susan Williams is the sister-in-law of Hell Jordan in the comics. This is not the first time Coast city has been referenced in the show. The CW network has confirmed the 4-night big crossover event between Flash, Arrow, Supergirl, Legends of Tomorrow, bringing Green Lantern will only elevate the narrative.
