Stephen Amell has already begun hyping up the arrival of Arrow season 5. The season 4 couldn’t handle supernatural component being introduced into the show. Hence, the idea is to embrace the roots of the show and create the world which is less complicated where the story is grounded and villains are more relatable.
He said in a live chat on Facebook that one particular fight scene “has the opportunity for us to have the most vicious, violent one-shot in the history of network television.” Further, he said, “If the premiere is any indication, Arrow is going to be f king mean this year, and that’s really exciting.” A new trailer has been released by the studio which features a giant statue of Black Canary in Town square erected by Mayor Oliver Queen in her memory. One gangster is saying Green Arrow can’t be brought down unless we work together, as far as Team Arrow is concerned we will have new members like Wild Dog, Mister Terrific, and Artemis. Moreover, Diggle will definitely be impacted by Flashpoint in a big way.
On the casting front, a new vigilante will be taking to the streets of Star city, TV Line described him as a “reckless ex-marine turned vigilante.” He is none other than Wild Dog (1980’s cult-classic vigilante hero), an alias of a 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.
Arrow season 5 will premiere on Oct 5, Wednesdays on the CW network at 8:00 p.m.
