Colin Donnell to Return on 'Arrow' Season 6





Colin Donnell will return to Arrow, appearing alongside Stephen Amell in his first flashback sequence of the season, according to a tweet from Amell.
Per Amell's phrasing, the flashback likely takes place in the season finale, although the star did not specify, saying only that he had gone 21 episodes (of a 22-episode season) without a flashback prior to this one.

21 episodes into Season 6 and I still haven’t shot a flashback. So this picture... this picture feels really good!

Donnell, who played Oliver Queen's best friend Tommy Merlyn, was a fan-favorite series regular in the show's first season before he died in the finale. The character has appeared in flashbacks a handful of times since, and most recently appeared in "Crisis on Earth-X," the four-show crossover event that brought together the casts of Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl, and DC's Legends of Tomorrow.
In the context of "Crisis on Earth-X," Donnell played the Earth-X doppelganger of Tommy, who dressed as the villain Prometheus and hailed from a planet where Nazis won the second World War.

Donnell is a series regular on Chicago Med, which has limited his ability to come back to Arrow, but he remains close with the cast and has popped back up to Vancouver whenever possible to shoot flashbacks and other sequences. In "Invasion!," when Arrow celebrated its hundredth episode amid last year's crossover with a number of cameos from the show's past, Donnell's absence was explained away by a wink-and-a-nod line of dialogue that he was stuck in Chicago.

'Arrow' Renewed for Season 7





The CW has renewed Arrow for its seventh season, ensuring that the series will survive whatever Ricardo Diaz and his posse of villains can throw at it this year.
The move was telegraphed recently when network president Mark Pedowitz said that he expected all of The CW's current DC superhero shows (Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl, and DC's Legends of Tomorrow) to be renewed for the 2018-2019 season.


"At the moment, it's a little too soon," Pedowitz said. "We're noted for announcing at winter TCA that we're picking up shows, we just weren't ready to do that yet. A couple more weeks [and] we'll probably get around to it. I'm pretty confident we'll see them all back."
Before that, executive producer Marc Guggenheim, who oversees Arrowand Legends of Tomorrow, had expressed confidence that those two would come back.

The CW was the only broadcast network to hold steady in the ratings rather than declining between 2016 and 2017, largely on the strength of its comic book offerings. With Supernatural and Riverdale holding steady or improving while The Flash and Legends of Tomorrow had single-digit ratings drops, the reliable audience that tunes in for DC's superhero shows helped make the network arguably the most consistent on TV last year.
The network is rolling out three new superhero products: the just-launched Freedom Fighters: The Ray and Constantine animated series on the web-based CW Seed, and Black Lightning.


The sixth season tends to be a time when contracts end and/or have to be renegotiated, so there may be some changes to the makeup of the show from season 7 on.
Last week's episode saw Willa Holland, one of the only series regulars to have been around since the pilot, leave the series as Thea Queen left town with her old flame, Roy Harper (Colton Haynes). Still, Pedowitz had indicated that at least some of the cast had signed on for potential future seasons already.
Arrow's seven seasons brings it closer to equaling the accomplishment of Smallville, The CW's first big superhero success, which ran for ten seasons.

'Arrow' Recruits Colton Haynes as Series Regular for Season 7


Arrow has added Colton Haynes as a series regular in season 7, reprising his role as Roy Harper.

No word yet on whether he will bring his jacket and costumed identity of Arsenal with him, or whether Thea Queen -- Willa Holland, who recently left the show -- will get to keep it.



“We’re very fortunate and excited to welcome back Colton to Arrow,” the show's producers said in a statement. “While we’ve always enjoyed Colton’s returns to the show, we couldn’t be more thrilled to have him return as a proper series regular and we’re very excited about all the creative opportunities Roy Harper’s return affords us.”
Haynes recently returned to Arrow for a two-episode arc during which he seemingly got hit happily-ever-after with Thea, his on-again/off-again love interest from the first three seasons. Haynes had left during the show's fourth season, after donning the Green Arrow costume in order to throw suspicion away from Oliver Queen. He later faked his death in prison and went on the lam to start a new life.
“I could not be happier to return to my role as Roy Harper alongside my Arrow family,” Haynes said.
It is possible that Haynes may appear in the finale, which begins shooting soon; it would not be unusual for The CW to make a major casting announcement just before that actor starts filming, in order to avoid being spoiled by paparazzi on-set.

Haynes joined the series in the first season, and he became one of the first members of Team Arrow, suiting up as Arsenal while dating Thea in his personal life. The character left the show in the season 4 episode "Unchained," but Haynes has remained open to returning since, making a brief cameo in "Invasion!" and teasing repeatedly his season 6 return.

While he has not been a regular in some time, Haynes has remained supportive of the show and has consistently expressed his desire to return to Arrow as his schedule permitted. The actor left the show to take personal time, and after some time away from TV (and work on the big-budget movie San Andreas), he appeared last season on American Horror Story.

BATWOMAN Is Coming To The ARROWVERSE! This Year's Crossover Event Will Introduce Kate Kane





The CW is set to host another huge crossover event this fall, and Arrow star Stephen Amell has just announced the surprising news that Batwoman is going to be introduced! More details after the jump...


The CW is planning to introduce a live-action take on Batwoman to The Arrowverse.

Arrow star Stephen Amell made the announcement at The CW’s upfront presentation this afternoon:
“We’re incredibly excited to announce that we’ll be doing another crossover event this fall on the CW, and we’ll be introducing a new character. For the very first time appearing, we’ll be fighting alongside Batwoman, which is terrific. The crossover is going to make it to air in December. I need to leave right now and start filming it.”
Kathy Kane was first introduced back in the '50s, but was re-imagined as "Kate" Kane for DC's New 52 many years later and has since gone on to become one of the highest-profile LGBTQ characters in comic book history.

Batwoman's introduction to the Arrowverse obviously paves the way for more members of the Bat-Family to put in an appearance, something which CW boss Mark Pedowitz alluded to with a follow up statement.

We are adding the city of Gotham into the Arrowverse,” he confirmed. “This will be another full-throttled, action-packed event.”

What do you guys make of this news? Drop us a comment below, and check out some new crossover artwork that debuted at the upfronts.

ARROW Season 7 Will See Oliver Queen Sport His Iconic Facial Hair Says Stephen Amell





Whether you want to call it a "van dyke" or just a "goatee," Oliver Queen's signature facial hair will arrive in Arrow season 7 revealed Stephen Amell at this past week's Motor City Comic Con.


The Arrow shorunners have revealed that the show's 7th season will kick off with Oliver Queen in prison. They've also revealed that it should be obvious that Ollie won't spend the entire season behind bars. However, it sounds as if the time Oliver spends locked up might be enough for him to grow his comic book counterpart's signature facial hair.

"Just because you’ve been polite, and just because everyone has been so nice to me today, I can break some news for you and let you know that in Season Seven I am going to debut the goatee,” Amell told Motor City Comic Con attendees. He added, "I can’t promise that I’m going to keep [the goatee] forever. I can definitely promise that I’m not going to wear the stupid hat."

What did you think of Arrow's 6th season? Many fans assumed that the show would end with its 5th season as the flashbacks recounting Oliver's time stranded on the island of Lian Yu would be completed. Yet, the show isn't displaying any signs of slowing down and could very well surpass Smallville one day.

'Arrow' Season 7 To Introduce Two New Characters






It's only been a matter of days since the season six finale of Arrow, but it sounds like we already have an idea of what to expect next season.
According to a new report from TVLine, the The CW series will be adding two new characters in its upcoming seventh season. One character, who will apparently be an adversary for Team Arrow, is described as "an ambitious, young, anti-vigilante recruit at the SCPD", who can apparently be considered the Buffy the Vampire Slayer of vigilantes. And a second recurring role will be that of "a successful tech wizard who is gay, and who harbors a heartbreaking past".


The possible inclusion of both of these characters is certainly interesting, as there's no telling exactly how they'd factor into next season's proceedings. Even with Ricardo Diaz (Kirk Acevedo) living to rule Star City another day - and his Longbow Hunters in tow - there's still a chance that this mystery character could be some sort of new villain. And with Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) being sent to a Supermax prison in the episode's final moments, it sounds like Team Arrow could have their hands full, especially with a third new character that Amell recently teased.
“We’re also debuting a new character, who, when I heard about it, I just got goosebumps." Amell revealed at a convention appearance last weekend. "I’m so excited.”

Either way, it sounds like fans should expect some changes in Arrow's seventh season, according to outgoing showrunner Marc Guggenheim.
"The show fundamentally changes in the finale." Guggenheim said in a previous interview. "And I think you'll see there's stuff that we were seeding back in the season premiere that finally comes to fruition here in the season finale, so you'll see that there was a very specific plan to the entire season. We always knew that this is where we were headed to. So, hopefully in subtle ways have been teasing this all along without you realizing it. My hope is that people are surprised, but also look back and are like oh, that was kind of the only way that they could have ended the season."

Colton Haynes Is Returning To 'Arrow' As Earth-One Roy Harper





Actor Colton Haynes is returning to Arrow for season 7 - but jut how he's being written back into the series is a mystery. Last we saw Haynes' character, Roy Harper, he had faked his own death after trying to take legal blame for being the Green Arrow. Roy then joined Thea Queen and Nyssa al Ghul on a quest to travel the world and eliminate the rest of the League of Assassins' Lazarus Pits.
The Arrowverse has created several routes for actors to reprise their characters in different forms - whether pulling characters from the past and/or future, or introducing alternate versions from other dimensions. However, in an interview with EW, Marc Guggenheim assured Arrow fans that no such trickery will be needed to explain Roy's return:


“I can tell you it’s absolutely our Earth’s Roy. Colton is coming back as our one Roy Harper. We have a cool plan for Roy — now I should really get into the habit of saying the writers have a cool plan for Roy — but I think it’s premature to talk about that."
Arrow season 6 concluded with Oliver Queen being locked in Super Max prison for his activity as Green Arrow, while gangster Ricardo Diaz survived to terrorize Star City another day. The cast and crew have already teased what that threat looks like for Team Arrow while Oliver is locked up, so it's not hard to imagine them needed all the help they can get. Since Roy has spent some time on the run, hiding his identity from public scrutiny and law enforcement, so he would be a natural go-to option to help protect the members of Team Arrow (Felicity and William especially). Not only could Roy help hide Felicity and William, he could also work with Felicity in her Overwatch capacity, to try and bring Diaz down, and/or work on getting Oliver out of Super Max. An even more interesting scenario might be having Roy be a surprise inmate at the Super Max, given his confessed history of vigilante activities. If he got picked up by the FBI or other law enforcement during his Lazarus Pit quest, it'd be only natural he'd end up there.

Arrow Season 7 May Introduce Ted Kord




A casting call for the upcoming Arrow season 7 may hint at Ted Kord (aka Blue Beetle) joining the cast. The casting call also mentions two other new characters, who could be any number of established characters from the DC Comics universe.

Created for Charlton Comics by the legendary Steve Ditko in 1966, Ted Kord was a brilliant inventor and gifted athlete who used his talents to fight crime as the Blue Beetle. DC Comics would later acquire the rights to the character in the mid-1980s, integrating him into the main DC Comics Universe following Crisis On Infinite Earths. Ted would go on to become a member of the new Justice League and form a long partnership with Booster Gold.


The details of the casting call were revealed by That Hashtag Show. While the notice does not mention Ted Kord by name (which is standard practice for casting calls on high-profile projects), it does offer a character description which sounds something like Ted Kord in the comics in several respects. The character is described as a Caucasian Male in his mid-30s who is "an intelligent and homosexual technological entrepreneur" who has "gone through tragic losses in his life" which he hides, leaving him "struggling with shaping new relationships with others."



The only part of this description that doesn't fit Ted Kord perfectly is the character being gay. Yet even that had been hinted at (albeit usually in a joking manner) in Ted's "bromance" with Booster Gold and the only time Ted was depicted as having anything close to a romantic relationship with anyone was an online flirtation with Barbara "Oracle" Gordon in Birds of Prey. Curiously enough, there were plans to introduce Ted Kord into the Arrowverse during Arrow's third season. Unfortunately, the rights were tied up in a Blue Beetle series that didn't come to fruition, and the character was reworked into Ray "The Atom" Palmer, who briefly dated Felicity Smoak.

The casting call goes on to describe “Konomi Rhodes” - a woman in her late 20s or early 30s with a background as a military tactician and street fighter, who is specifically described as being half Japanese and half Caucasian as well as "a formidable fighter who ends ups clashing with the heroes of Star City." The specific reference to her being half-Japanese has some speculating this could be a way to introduce Emiko Queen - Oliver Queen's half-sister and the Red Arrow in the current reality of DC Comics - into the reality of Arrow. There is also some speculation that Konomi could be Lady Shiva - the deadliest martial artist in the world of DC Comics and a figure curiously absent from the Arrow mythology so far, given her long association with the League of Assassins. The final casting call is for "Jessie Bowden" - an 18+ Caucasian female and rookie cop on the SCPD Police Force, who is determined to bring down the city's vigilantes at any cost.

While speculation as to who these characters might be is likely to run rampant throughout the summer, this casting call points to a more troubling issue. One of the chief complaints of Arrow's sixth season was that the show's ensemble had grown too large and unwieldy. Even with two long-time cast members having left the series, three new regular characters, coupled with the return of Roy Harper, can only aggravate this issue. As great as it would be to see Blue Beetle brought to life in live-action, it might not be worth it under these circumstances.

Arrow: What the Longbow Hunters Mean For Season 7




WARNING: This article contains spoilers for the Season 6 finale of Arrow, “Life Sentence.”

The Season 6 finale of The CW’s Arrow was a different beast than the previous five. Traditionally, the big bad of the season was defeated by the end of the episode, but the sixth season’s main antagonist, Ricardo “The Dragon” Diaz lived to fight another day. Malcolm Merlyn, Slade Wilson, Ra’s Al Ghul, Damien Darhk and Prometheus all fell to the Green Arrow in their final showdowns, whereas Diaz was shown to have survived his climactic battle with the superhero. Worse still, when last we saw him, he was angrier than ever, and ready to take things to the next level.

As the series prepares to head into its seventh year, we already have a hint of where things are going to go. Oliver Queen is in prison, and he will have to find a way to survive by any means necessary. Worse then that, we already know that Diza will be back, and he’ll bring with him a villainous group known as the Longbow Hunters, who will come into play in big way. But who are these hunters, and what makes them so dangerous?



The name “Longbow Hunters” is one that has a lot of history in the Green Arrow comics. First, it was the name of the 1987 miniseries written and drawn by Mike Grell, a comic that served as inspiration for the launch of the gritty and dark DCTV series. However, the comic didn’t actually feature a group known as the Longbow Hunters; that would come much later, as art of 2014’s New 52 relaunch of DC Comics.

In the Green Arrow story “The Outsiders War,” by Jeff Lemire and Andrea Sorrentino, the Longbow Hunters debuted as a team of supervillains brought together by Richard Dragon (aka Ricardo Diaz on the television series). The team consisted of various B and C-list villains such as Count Vertigo, Brick, Killer Moth and Red Dart.

Now, considering that Dragon, Vertigo and Brick all appeared throughout the television series, it would make sense to assume that this is the team Diaz brings together. However, this doesn’t appear to be the version Arrow is planning to introduce. Diaz first name-drops the group at the top of the Season 6 finale to Anatoly Knyazev, who relays the message to Oliver and, it so happens Oliver and Diggle are already well aware of these Hunters. They describe them as three legendary assassins that even the League of Assassins is afraid of. And here’s where things get really interesting — they say the last of these Hunters was last seen in the 1950s, with Diggle bluntly stating that it was more than likely their own choice to disappear for a time.

This means that Season 7’s Longbow Hunters will not be the team of small time villains seen in the comics. Instead, we’re looking at a group of assassins who have made a name for themselves a long time ago, and who just might happen to be somehow immortal or ageless. Like in the comics, the group will be brought together by Dragon, but they may not exactly answer to him. In fact, if they’re as fearsome as we are led to believe, they might not answer to anyone but themselves.



There are many mystical and immortal characters in DC’s library, meaning that these three assassins could easily be characters known to comic fans. But there is also the possibility that they will be new creations for the show. With elements like the Lazarus Pits, demons and the Nth Metal that gave Vandal Savage eternal life, there are multiple Arrowverse-based explanations for the Longbow Hunters’ apparent long lives. Then again, the legendary status of the group might be part of a ruse, and the Longbow Hunters could very well be a mantle that is passed from one to the next.

Whoever the Longbow Hunters ultimately wind up being, the group’s name was not chosen for nothing. They just might be the most dangerous foes that Oliver Queen will ever have to face. Mike Grell’s 1987 comic series was a return to basics for the character after decades of more outlandish adventures, and the arrival of a group with the same name on the television series might herald the same forecast: a return to darker, grittier basics.

Batwoman is coming to the Arrowverse, and fans are already champing at the bit for news.

To no one's surprise, fans at the Heroes & Villains Fan Fest in London wanted to get Amell's take on the casting for Batwoman -- and to no one's surprise, Amell wasn't really able to say very much about a major event story coming up several months from now.

"I know the entire story of the crossover," Amell told the audience. "It's awesome, and I can't talk about it at all.
After fans asked him to "fan-cast" the character, Amell demurred, saying that he had faith casting director David Rappaport would knock it out of the park.

Something went wrong. Please make sure you added the video correctly.

You can check out the clip in the video above.

Comicbook.com was on hand during The CW's recent Upfronts presentation, where Arrow star Stephen Amell announced that Batwoman will be introduced in the upcoming Arrowverse crossover. While it's unclear exactly how Batwoman will factor into the story, it was hinted that Gotham City will make an appearance, finally introducing it officially into the Arrowverse after years of being teased, name-dropped, and joked about.

"This is the first time ever that she will make a live-action appearance on any screen," said The CW president Mark Pedowitz.

Batwoman was first introduced into the pages of DC Comics back in 1956, before Kate Kane took on the mantle in 2006. Since then, the character has developed a pretty passionate fan following, particularly as one of DC's first openly lesbian superheroes. Over the past few years, fans have gotten to see multiple incarnations of Batwoman across DC Comics, most recently in her own solo series, and as a leading member of Bombshells United.

Are you excited to see Batwoman come to the Arrowverse? Let us know what you think in the comments below.

10 Actresses Who Should Play Batwoman In The Arrowverse


It was just revealed that Batwoman herself will make an appearance in the next major Arrow crossover. After including characters like The Flash and Supergirl, Kate Kane herself is swinging into the Arrowverse. The character has been featured in animated DC projects, but she has never appeared in live-action before.
A talented actress is needed to bring such a strong character to life. Batwoman is just as fierce a fighter as her cousin Batman and she has a unique view on the world. An ex-soldier who was raised by her obsessive father, Kate Kane picked up the Batwoman mantle separate from her cousin’s decision to fight crime in Gotham. She has no problem putting herself in harm’s way to protect others and she’s also an intelligent tactician who will challenge Oliver Queen for the top slot in Arrow’s Justice League.
10. Lindsey Morgan


The star of another hit CW property, Lindsey Morgan is best known for her role in The 100 and a perfect choice to play Batwoman.Her character Raven Reyes is a genius mechanical engineer who has no problem rolling up her sleeves and solving problems herself. Morgan did such a good job that her character was bumped up from a recurring role to a series regular in season two, proving she has what it takes to make general audiences fall for her charm.
From 2012 to 2014, Morgan had a prominent role in General Hospital. While the show’s plot couldn’t be any more different from Arrow’s, Morgan’s soap opera sensibilities work perfectly in the Arrowverse. Batwoman has an estranged relationship with her father, has a cousin who dresses around in a costume and fights people at night and is a veteran, so she may as well be a soap opera character. When Batwoman comes swinging into Star City, it’s certainly going to be a dramatic moment, and Morgan has the skills to bring the character to life.
9. Riley Keough


In addition to being Elvis and Priscilla Presley’s oldest grandchild, Riley Keough is a great actress. She burst onto the scene in 2010 with her role as Marie Currie in The Runaways and went on to star in Starz’ show The Girlfriend Project. She turned in such a strong performance in the show that she was nominated for a best actress Golden Globe.
In the last few years, Keough’s name has exploded. After appearing in projects like Mad Max: Fury Road and It Comes At Night, it’s unlikely she’ll return to TV. Hopefully, Keough is a DC Comics fan, because she’s a dead ringer for Kate Kane and would likely do a great job bringing the superhero to life.
8. Rose Leslie


Rose Leslie already has a reputation for being an ass-kicking heroine on the silver screen. After appearing in Game of Thrones as Ygritte, Leslie has been on the shortlist for every awesome red headed character in fiction. In both Game of Thrones and The Last With Hunter, she’s already proven she has what it takes to learn intense action choreography and carry emotionally-charged scenes, so casting her as emotionally conflicted heroine Kate Kane seems like a no-brainer. Her time playing the wildling also proves she knows how to interact believably with CGI creatures and characters, a skill that could come in handy for anyone who joins the Arrowverse.
Leslie is currently starring in the CBS All Access program The Good Fight. The show just started streaming its second season, so hopefully that means Leslie has a little bit of downtime she can fill playing Batwoman before she has to film season three.
7. Adrianne Palicki


Adrianne Palicki is one of the most action-packed starlets in Hollywood. With roles in everything from John Wick to G.I. Joe: Retaliation, Paliciki is a skilled actress who is always ready to throw down. Over the years, Palicki has played both heroes and villains and now she has a starring role in The Orville. In 2011, Palicki was even cast to play Wonder Woman in a pilot for NBC that was never ordered to series.
At this point, it’s unlikely that Palicki will join the DC Universe. After her scraped opportunity to embody the Amazonian warrior, the actress eventually joined with DC’s competition. In 2015, ABC ordered a pilot featuring her Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. character Mockingbird, but ultimately Palicki had another superhero show pulled out from underneath her because the network decided to develop projects starring different Marvel characters instead.
6. Kat Graham


Kat Graham may have just starred in 2017’s All Eyez On Me, but her filmography stretches all the way back to 1998 with The Parent Trap. She’s probably best known for her role as Bonnie Bennett in The Vampire Diaries, one of the CW’s longest-running and highest rated programs. Bennet is a natural hero who is extremely empathetic and is always willing to put herself in harm’s way to protect others.
Graham has already shown that she is comfortable playing a hero but she’s also capable of incorporating a level of believable darkness into her performance. That’s a skill that will be necessary for whoever portrays Batwoman when she finally joins the rest of the DC Universe on Arrow.
5. Rachel Nichols


Rachel Nichols transitioned to acting after modelling in college and had her first major break in Dumb and Dumberer, an unnecessary sequel/prequel made in 2003. Since then, she has gone on to appear in many action-packed franchises like Alias and GI: Joe and even had a role in the 2005 horror movie The Amityville Horror.

Nichols may have a lot of film experience, but she has appeared on many television shows over the years. She played one of the central characters in Continuum and had a supporting role in both Criminal Minds and Chicago Fire. Nichols has a knack for playing characters who take matters into her own hands and has already proved she has no problem kicking butt, so she seems like a great choice to bring Batwoman to life on Arrow.
4. Grace Park


Grace Park has already had an impressive television career. After starring in the rebooted Battlestar Galactica, she earned a key role in CBS’ new Hawaii 5-0 series and appeared in over 160 episodes. Not only does she know how to shine in a crowded ensemble, but Park is also skilled in action scenes. She knows how to handle a lot of intense action and chase choreography, a necessary skill for whoever brings Batwoman to life.
For her role as Kono Kalakaua in Hawaii 5-0, Park was even nominated for multiple Teen Choice Awards. While people of all ages watch Arrow and the rest of The CW’s shows, the network is heavily marketed towards teens and young adults. Casting a starlet like Park who has already proved she is popular with the millennial audience may be an important metric for The CW to consider when casting Batwoman.
3. Jane Levy


Ever since starring in ABC’s Suburgatory, Jane Levy has slowly been building an impressive portfolio. Appearing in horror movies like Don’t Breath and the Evil Dead remake, Levy is capable of pulling off intense performances. Her role in Evil Dead was equal parts dramatic and hammy, a perfect combination for whoever brings Batwoman to life in the Arrowverse.
Levy had a small part in David Lynch’s Twin Peaks revival and currently has a role in Amazon’s Stephen King anthology series Castle Rock. She may be busy, but hopefully this red-headed starlet has time to join the Bat-family for just a little bit.
2. Evan Rachel Wood


A celebrated actress with roles in both television and in the big screen, Evan Rachel Wood is an excellent choice to bring Batwoman to life. Wood has a lot of range and looks comfortable kicking butt on the silver screen. She has the star power and the chops to make Batwoman’s presence in the Arrowverse a big deal.
Unfortunately, Wood’s starring role in HBO’s Westworld makes this casting highly unlikely. As Dolores, Wood does a great job playing a character with a multi-faceted personality, sometimes blending into the crowd and sometimes leading a rebellion. These characteristics are also emblematic of Batwoman as a character, so she’s a perfect choice to bring Gotham’s strongest heroine to life.
1. Olivia Munn


Thanks to her role in shows like Attack of the Show and The Newsroom, Olivia Munn has already solidified her role as a fan-favorite tv actress. Munn is a strong performer who can pull of multiple personality types. Capable of embodying both light-hearted/goofy and serious/action-packed characters, Munn is the perfect choice to bring the intense heroine to the silver screen.
Munn even has superhero experience thanks to her role as Psylocke in X-Men: Apacolypse. To bring Psylocke to life, she went through an intense training program and boot camp that will come in handy if she brings Batwoman to life in Arrow. She has the screen presence and charisma to match and even overshadow Stephen Amell’s Oliver Queen, the perfect quality for whoever brings the confident hero to life.

Stephen Amell Wants 'Arrow' Season 7 Written as If There Might Not Be a Season 8

Arrow has been gracing television screens for over half a decade now, but it sounds like the The CW series could have a new approach going into Season 7.

Stephen Amell, who stars as Oliver Queen/Green Arrow on the series, recently spoke about the new season in an interview with The Music Australia. As Amell explained, Arrow's recent change of showrunners has prompted a new sort of "write like there's no tomorrow" outlook in the writers' room.

“We have a new showrunner this year, Beth Schwartz, who’s been with the show since season one." Amell explained. "[The writers] have a very clear vision of what they want season seven to be, and what I asked them to do – and it’s not up to me – but what I asked of them is to not just assume that we have an eighth season. I wanted them to write like, ‘If you have a good idea, and you have something you’ve always wanted to do or see on the show, then just do it! Do it right now!'"

"I think that’s one of the things I’m getting out of what they’ve planned for season seven – we’re not writing like we’re guaranteed something beyond this, because we’re not; nobody is." Amell continued. "I want them to really push forward and take the fact we have a certain license and a certain respect from the fans to take some chances."
And according to Amell, that desire to take some chances could have some interesting positive or negative responses from the show's fanbase, something that he welcomes to an extent.

“Obviously, you want to lean into things that you think fans would want, right?” Amell suggested. “Concurrently, I’m all for things that make fans mad, because mad is no different than happy. The only thing that I don’t want is indifference. I always joke with fans about my alter-ego, Evil Story Steve. If you were to tell me, you know, that four people died in the season premiere of Arrow in season seven, I’d be very sad … but my alter-ego, Evil Story Steve, would be like, ‘Oh – that’s very exciting; why’d that happen?’"

"So, I think that making fans happy, clearly, is what you wanna do when you’re on a show in general because you want people to keep watching, as long as you’re not afraid to lean into things that may make them go, ‘But why would you do that? I hate that. That’s awful,’ because that’s not actually what they mean. If someone screams out on Twitter, ‘I’m gonna stop watching the show!’ they’re probably not gonna stop watching the show, you know what I mean?”

Are you excited to see what's in store for Arrow's seventh season? Let us know what you think in the comments below.

'Arrow': Did Stephen Amell Just Tease a 'Legends of Tomorrow' Connection in Season 7?





In an episode of Legends of Tomorrow's first season, the heroes travel to the future and discover not only a grim fate for Star City but that Felicity Smoak eventually has her own company. It's something that fans have speculated about ever since and now fans are wondering if Arrow star Stephen Amell may have just teased at that future becoming a reality.
Amell posted a photo to Twitter earlier today of himself wearing a Smoak Technologies t-shirt accompanied by a caption consisting only of a shrugging emoji. Check it out below.

While the shirt could just be that, a shirt, it's also possible that it's a subtle nod at potential storylines for Arrow's upcoming Season 7. Last season on Arrow saw a lot of major changes and shifts for not just Amell's Oliver Queen/Green Arrow, but for Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) as well. Felicity, largely out of work since being ousted from Palmer Technologies awhile back, paired up with Curtis (Echo Kellum) to start their own technology business, Helix Dynamics. While getting that company up and running has had its share of challenges -- from figuring out what they want to do with the company, deciding on the name, and even getting together the money to make it work --it appears to be more on track now.

The company being on track now is a good thing. With Oliver in prison at the end of Season 6, Felicity will need something to do and bring in an income. If Arrow were to use the business as a way to further develop Felicity's character without Oliver, having it become Smoak Technologies would be a way to do that while also giving fans something they've been asking for for a long time. And the idea that the show is eventually working its way towards Smoak Technologies is something that Rickards herself has even spoken about before. At Heroes and Villains Fan Fest last year, Rickards said that the show was working towards Smoak Tech.

"We're working towards Smoak Technologies, I can't say when, but I'd say that's going to happen," Rickards said at the time.
If Smoak Technologies does come to life -- and that Smoak Tech shirt logo does look a little bit like a DNA double helix, it's another step the show comes closer to lining up with the timeline established in Legends of Tomorrow's episode "Star City 2046." Arrow already added John Diggle, Jr. to the series -- he had previously been baby Sara Diggle until Barry Allen ruined things with Flashpoint -- and then last season officially brought Grant Wilson, son of Slade, into the Arrowverse. Grant's existence was revealed to Slade by his other son, Joe/Kane.


However, even if Smoak Technologies does make an appearance in Arrow Season 7, that doesn't mean Star City's grim fate is sealed. As we've seen on Legends -- and Arrow to a lesser extent -- anything is possible but casting information for a tech wizard that some think could be Blue Beetle Ted Kord might just bring another influence into the mix that could help strike the right balance that gives Smoak Technology and Star City a brighter future than we've seen.

'Arrow': 8 Villains We Want to See Return in Season 7






Earlier today, Warner Bros. Television released a new synopsis for Arrow's seventh season as part of the announcement of the show's panel at San Diego Comic-Con next month. While the synopsis was a bit vague, it did give fans a few hints about what is coming up for Oliver Queen and opened the door for some speculation about villains.
As fans of the show will recall, Arrow's sixth season ended with a major change for Oliver Queen/Green Arrow (Stephen Amell). To get the help needed to take down Ricardo Diaz (Kirk Acevedo), Oliver had make a deal with the feds: admit he's the Green Arrow and go to prison for his crimes. Unfortunately, the deal didn't quite work out the way that Oliver perhaps would have preferred. While Diaz's operation was disrupted, the villain himself got away. He was seen at the end of the season finale licking his wounds with his Longbow Hunters while Oliver announced his status as Green Arrow to the world. That's right: even though Diaz wasn't captured or killed Oliver is still doing time in a super max prison.
According to the synopsis, prison is going to be a big part of the drama next season. You can check it out below.
"There has been no shortage of close calls for Oliver Queen when it comes to protecting his Super Hero identity, but in the season six finale, he was finally backed into a corner and forced to reveal himself to the world as the Green Arrow. Now, Oliver will come face-to-face with many of the criminals he placed behind bars, as he makes a new home for himself at Slabside Maximum Security Prison. Oliver will find himself vulnerable in a way unlike ever before when a mysterious new enemy begins to unravel his work as Green Arrow, challenging him to redeem his name or risk losing everything."


From that synopsis it sounds like villains are going to be getting quite a bit of spotlight this season, both directly in terms of those Oliver is now incarcerated with and potentially those still free in the streets. The new enemy unravelling Green Arrow's work, along with Diaz's freedom, could signal the return of old villains as well, especially those looking for another chance at a flourishing criminal operation in Star City. Both are possibilities that could mean a major shift for Arrow, something that series star Stephen Amell has even hinted at, noting that the show is writing like there won't be a season eight.
"I think that's one of the things I'm getting out of what they've planned for season seven -- we're not writing like we're guaranteed something beyond this, because we're not; nobody is," Amell said recently. "I want them to really push forward and take the fact that we have a certain license and a certain respect from the fans to take some chances."
Villains make excellent chances so, with that in mind we've come up with a list of villains we'd like to see return to Arrow for Season 7. While we fully expect that the show will bring back long-dead villains -- after all, Oliver/Green Arrow has killed more bad guys of note than he's managed to get locked up -- we're choosing to focus on characters that are still among the living. We're also looking at more than just characters Oliver might encounter at Slabside because, after all, without its hero, Star City really might be open for criminal business.
Read on for the villains we'd like to see on Arrow next season.

SLIDE 1 of 8WERNER ZYTLE/VERTIGO(Photo: The CW) The second of Arrow's villains to bear the Vertigo moniker, Werner Zytle has gone from drug dealer to crime lord over time and despite being incarcerated a few times always manages to get out some how. With Oliver out of the way and Diaz's criminal control over Star City seemingly in shambles, if Zytle happens to not be incarcerated somehow Season 7 would be a prime opportunity for him to return and rebuild his own criminal empire as Vertigo.


Alternatively, if Zytle himself doesn't return getting a new Vertigo is something that we wouldn't mind seeing as well. After all, after one of his captures Zytle did say that there would always be someone to pick up the mantle of the first Vertigo, Cecil Adams.

SLIDE 2 of 8TALIA AL GHUL(Photo: The CW)


Technically we don't know what Talia al Ghul's status is. The last time we actually saw her was in the Season 5 finale where she was part of Adrian Chase/Prometheus' team. As she was still on the island when Chase blew it up, Talia's fate has been left as a question mark. However, considering that she's Ra's daughter we doubt she's dead and considering that she's bent on revenge against Oliver for killing her father? Talia showing up in Star City while Oliver is in prison and can't do anything to stop her seems like something that she would be more than capable of. After all, she conspired with Chase to get at Oliver by hurting those he loves and was some what successful with Oliver a free man. It would surprising if she didn't take the opportunity now that he's behind bars.

SLIDE 3 of 8CHIEN NA WEI/CHINA WHITE(Photo: The CW) Another villain with ties to a criminal empire that might want to take advantage of a Green Arrow-less Star City is Chien Na Wei, better known as China White. While the last time we saw her she was a cold-blooded assassin, she previously was the head of the Chinese Triad. It wouldn't be too much of a stretch for her to once again escape from prison and return to criminal activities.


If she did decide to resume leading a gang -- be it a reformed version of the Triads or something else -- having her operating in Star City would also be an excellent way for her to get revenge on Green Arrow in a sense. When she last faced off with Green Arrow in Season 5, she openly mocked the vigilante as she expected the Anti-Crime Unit to arrest him. Instead, they arrested her. You can bet she has an axe to grind.

SLIDE 4 of 8HELENA BERTINELLI/HUNTRESS(Photo: The CW) Okay, Helena Bertinelli isn't exactly a villain, but she certainly isn't someone above comitting crimes to get what she wants. While she technically has what she wants -- her father is dead and Diaz disbanded the Bertinelli crime family -- if a mysterious new enemy is undoing the work of the Green Arrow that could cause Diaz to rise to power again. If so, he would technically be the new head of the Bertinelli crime family as he controls what's left of it.


Given that Huntress' methods don't always align with that of Team Arrow, it could make her an interesting adversary in Season 7 if she returned to take on Diaz. We're pretty sure prison probably wouldn't stop her.

SLIDE 5 of 8JEREMY TELL/DOUBLE DOWN(Photo: The CW) One of the former villains that Oliver could encounter in prison is Jeremy Tell, aka Double Down.


A mercenary tasked with killing Green Arrow, Tell was initially sent to Iron Heights Prison as he is a metahuman and, being the primary prison on The Flash, Iron Heights has a specific metahuman wing. But a lot has happened since he was last seen and its conceivable that he may have been transferred to Slabside. As Green Arrow and is directly responsible for his incarceration, Oliver and Tell meeting in prison isn't likely to be a fun moment for Oliver. More than that, though, Tell's powers are just cool and the idea of him hurling cards around prison is a visual effect we wouldn't mind seeing.

SLIDE 6 of 8TEDDY RESTON/JACK(Photo: The CW) Speaking of cards, as a member of the Royal Flush Gang Teddy Reston has more than a few reasons to hate Oliver Queen. His father, Derek Reston, lost his job at Queen Consolidated and never received severance package thanks to Oliver's father, Robert Queen, taking advantage of a loophole in a union contract. As a result, the Restons lost their home and turned to a life of crime.


Having his life turned upside down and then his future taken from him as a young man because of having to turn to crime with his family in order to survive likely has left Teddy with some unresolved anger towards Oliver. While we don't see him as necessarily being a vicious enemy of Oliver's in prison, it would be interesting to see Oliver forced to confront his father's legacy in a way he never has had to before: from behind bars -- which, in a way, is also part of his father's legacy.

SLIDE 7 of 8THE HOODS(Photo: The CW)


A group of vigilantes who terrorized Star City after the Undertaking, The Hoods are all behind bars but they also once targeted Oliver Queen as they saw him as a prime example of the corruption and privilege they so hated. With Oliver having been revealed to be the Green Arrow -- the very hero they patterned themselves after -- things could get awkward and violent in Slabside pretty quickly. This would also be an other great opportunity for Oliver to have to confront his past and a great nod to the show's earlier seasons.

SLIDE 8 of 8ERIC DUNN (SPOOKY CREW)(Photo: The CW) Leader of what Felicity termed the Spooky Crew, Eric Dunn was a bank robber hunted by both Vigilante and Team Arrow for his crimes. While Team Arrow ultimately protected Dunn from Vigilante, they also turned him over to the police. With Dunn having an extensive prison history -- first serving two years for a crime he didn't commit and then being sentenced to 13 more for mutliple armed robberies that he did -- he's probably now in Slabside. It would be interesting to see Oliver encounter him, especially if Dunn is bitter about being in prison yet again.


Who do you think might return in Arrow's seventh season? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.

Arrow

An official synopsis from San Diego Comic-Con seems to confirm the latest season will take some inspiration from David S. Goyer’s scrapped Green Arrow movie, Escape from Supermax.
There has been no shortage of close calls for Oliver Queen when it comes to protecting his Super Hero identity, but in the season six finale, he was finally backed into a corner and forced to reveal himself to the world as the Green Arrow. Now, Oliver will come face-to-face with many of the criminals he placed behind bars, as he makes a new home for himself at Slabside Maximum Security Prison. Oliver will find himself vulnerable in a way unlike ever before when a mysterious new enemy begins to unravel his work as Green Arrow, challenging him to redeem his name or risk losing everything.

Colton Haynes Reveals When He Returns to 'Arrow'





After being away from the superhero scene for a couple of years, fan-favorite actor Colton Haynes is finally returning to Arrow as a series regular in Season 7, and audiences couldn't be happier.
While the upcoming season may still be a few months away, not set to premiere on The CW until October, it sounds like Haynes is getting back in his red, Roy Harper attire in just a couple of weeks.


Early Wednesday morning, Haynes tweeted about an upcoming convention appearance, and noted that it wouldn't be long before he was back on set.
"I still have no idea how some ppl can cope with jetlag," Haynes wrote. "I'm basically a 2 yr old haha. But I'm excited to see y'all back in Paris on July 7th for my first convention in a loooong time! Then I go right back filming #Arrow I'm so excited!"

So, it sounds as though Haynes plans to be back on set as early as the July 8 or 9. Given that he'll be with the rest of the cast throughout July, and that he's a series regular heading into Season 7, it's easy to believe that Haynes could be appearing on the Arrow panel at San Diego Comic-Con later in the month.
The actor didn't appear at the convention last year, at least not in person. Though he had been gone from the show for several years, Haynes took part in the final season of MTV's Teen Wolf. The cast and producers of the series took part in a Hall H panel last summer, but Haynes was unable to attend due to a scheduling conflict with American Horror Story: Cult. However, the actor did send in a video that was shown at the panel, thanking fans for the years of dedication to the show and his character.


Are you excited that Roy Harper is returning to Arrow this fall? Let us know in the comments!

tephen Amell Reveals What 'Arrow' Fans Will Miss out on Because of Time Slot Change






Arrow is headed to a new night and time this fall, and series star Stephen Amell has a pretty unique outlook on it.
Amell, who plays Oliver Queen/Green Arrow on the veteran The CW series, recently addressed the show moving from its 9/8c Thursday time slot to an 8/7c Monday time slot. As he joked on his Twitter account, the earlier time slot prevents him from being able to "show [his] full bum" on the show.

Stephen Amell
@StephenAmell





Would have appreciated a heads up that Arrow is moving back to 8 pm before I reeled off 8,000 squats in anticipation of showing my full bum on television.
2:59 PM - Jun 28, 2018

Granted, the later time slot on The CW most likely wouldn't have allowed that much nudity anyway, but fans will surely be delighted by Amell's joke.
Either way, it will be interesting to see how things develop in Arrow's seventh season, with Oliver most recently revealing his identity as the Green Arrow and agreeing to go to prison.

While it's unclear exactly how Oliver will get out of his current situation, it sounds like quite a few threats are waiting on the outside. As was teased in the Season 6 finale, Ricardo Diaz (Richard Dragon) still has a pretty major hold on Star City, and he's set to bring his Longbow Hunters along for the ride.
"The idea now is: If Oliver’s in prison, is he actually more protected than the team?” Emily Bett Rickards, who plays Felicity Smoak, explained earlier this year. “The rest of the team is all going to be in danger as well. Where that puts Felicity and William, I mean, we can only do so much to protect them."


Depending on how all of this this is executed, it could represent a major shift for Arrow, something that Amell appears to be on board with.
"I think that’s one of the things I’m getting out of what they’ve planned for season seven – we’re not writing like we’re guaranteed something beyond this, because we’re not; nobody is." Amell said in a recent interview. "I want them to really push forward and take the fact we have a certain license and a certain respect from the fans to take some chances."
You can view the official synopsis for Arrow's seventh season below.

"There has been no shortage of close calls for Oliver Queen when it comes to protecting his Super Hero identity, but in the season six finale, he was finally backed into a corner and forced to reveal himself to the world as the Green Arrow. Now, Oliver will come face-to-face with many of the criminals he placed behind bars, as he makes a new home for himself at Slabside Maximum Security Prison. Oliver will find himself vulnerable in a way unlike ever before when a mysterious new enemy begins to unravel his work as Green Arrow, challenging him to redeem his name or risk losing everything."

Green Arrow Comic Tells Prison Story The TV Show Won't






Warning: SPOILERS through Green Arrow #42.
The seventh season of Arrow seems ready to bring the concept of the cancelled Green Arrow movie Supermaxto life on the small screen. Meanwhile, the monthly Green Arrow comic is tackling an entirely different sort of story involving prisons - one that Arrow seems unlikely to address.


Green Arrow #41 saw The Emerald Archer running an escort mission on behalf of the Justice League, accompanying the convoy transporting a metahuman known as The Parasite to his day in court. Given that The Parasite's energy-draining abilities allowed him to duplicate the metahuman powers of anyone he touched, it was judged that Oliver Queen would be the most able person to contain the situation (without escalating it should something go wrong).


Naturally, something did go wrong, as it was discovered that the DNA contained in a glob of spit was enough to trigger Parasite's abilities. One errant spitball from another super-strong inmate caused The Parasite to start running amok.
As Green Arrow #42 opens, Oliver Queen has tracked The Parasite into the sewers under the prison. Rather than seeking to turn The Parasite into a pin-cushion, Green Arrow tries to talk him into returning peacefully. The Parasite dismisses this idea, telling Green Arrow about the man he was before an accident turned him into The Parasite. And how, despite being promised that the government would try to find a cure for him, he was shoved in a hole in the ground and left to rot by the prison's warden.
<img class=" lazyloaded">
Once The Parasite is recaptured, Green Arrow asks to see The Parasite's cell, which is covered with suicidal graffiti. When he confronts the warden over the abusive treatment The Parasite has suffered, the warden doesn't deny keeping the prisoner locked away in inhumane conditions. He defends his actions, however, by pointing out that he is doing the best that he can with a limited budget.
The warden goes on to list the difficulties in running a standard prison, and how those problems are exacerbated by the need to take care of metahuman prisoners. He says the state doesn't given him the budget to provide his guards with a decent health care plan, much less construct a special cell that would allow The Parasite - who can also drain energy from electronic devices - to watch TV without being an escape risk. Green Arrow concedes the point, but says that prisoners "only stay men if we treat them that way. Otherwise they really are monsters... And so are we."
Perhaps the most stunning aspect of this story is the nuanced portrayal of the warden, who resists the usual genre cliches of being a petty tyrant who relishes the chance to violently put his charges in their place, calling them all animals and monsters. This is the expectation Green Arrow holds until he tries to talk to the warden in the same way that he spoke to The Parasite.


This story shows that sometimes there are no easy answers and no true villains - a lesson it is shocking to see delivered in a comic book and one we probably won't see conveyed in the upcoming season of Arrow.

Marc Guggenheim Drops Major 'Arrow' Tease on Twitter





Arrow's upcoming seventh season just entered production last week, but thanks to a new tease the wait for new episodes might not feel quite as long -- unless, of course, you're Oliver Queen.
Marc Guggenheim, who stepped down as showrunner for the hit The CW series but serves as a consulting producer, took to Twitter today with a photo of a visitor's badge for Slabside Maximum Security Prison, better known as the location that Oliver Queen/Green Arrow (Stephen Amell) will serve his life sentence. Check it out below.


"Come pay Oliver a visit..." Guggenheim wrote alongside the bright yellow graphic. There are some interesting details on the graphic as well, such as the I.D. number and the issue/expiration dates. The dates are of note because, as fans on Twitter quickly noticed, are written in European day-month-year format and because there are only 30 days in June.
Interesting dates aside, the graphic along with the season seven premiere's title that was released last month -- "Inmate 4587" -- certainly makes the fact that Oliver really is in prison a lot more real. And while the visitor card serves as a reminder that Oliver's incarceration will have an impact on everyone he cares about, it also reinforces that being behind bars isn't going to be easy for the former Green Arrow. The official synopsis for the upcoming season revealed that Oliver will find himself face-to-face with many of the criminals he put behind bars previously and Slabside Maximum Security Prison isn't likely to be a nice place. Oliver will find himself "vulnerable in a way unlike ever before" especially as a new enemy undoes his work as the Green Arrow.

With Oliver's incarceration at Slabside appearing to be at least a loose adaptation of Supermax, the never-produced Green Arrow movie that would have seen him enlist the aid of supervillains in an attempt to break out of a Super Max prison after being convicted of crimes he did not commit, it will be interesting to see how things play out -- just as it will be interesting to see just who comes to visit the former vigilante while he's all locked up.

'Arrow' Season 7 Character Breakdowns Could Hint at Batwoman's Arrival


The Arrowverse is set to go to some pretty unique places in the upcoming 2018-2019 season, and we could have a better idea of one fan-favorite character's debut.

That Hashtag Show recently uncovered several new casting descriptions for Arrow's seventh season, which hint at a trio of characters joining the series. As they point out in their report, the description for a recurring character named "Angeline" has seemed to match the qualities of Kate Kane/Batwoman.

The description says that Angeline is "a diverse woman in her 30s, and a fierce fighter despite her smaller stature". Angeline is "experienced in stealth" and is "able to wipe out buildings filled with foes all by herself before she is gone like a ghost".

Of course, there's a pretty good chance that Angeline could be a cover for a completely different DC Comics character, or an entirely original one. But with Batwoman confirmed to appear in this year's Arrowverse crossover, it certainly isn't out of the question that this description could represent her.
If this description is in fact for Batwoman, it certainly will raise a lot of questions for Arrowverse fans. For one thing, the fact that she's listed as a recurring character could hint at an appearance beyond the four-show crossover, possibly in the episodes before or immediately after. For fans who have been eagerly anticipating Kate's live-action debut, that could be pretty intriguing.

From there, the other two Arrow casting descriptions are almost as ambiguous. One calls for a 30-something woman named "Leah", a world-class mercenary who was born to be a leader and has a toolbox of skills. While it's anyone's guess in terms of what character that could be, there is a metahuman assassin by the name of Leah Wasserman/Mindboggler in the pages of DC Comics.

And the third recurring description calls for a 30-40 year old man named "Dover", who is a "physically intimidating" character. According to the description, Dover "may not be the brightest person in the room", but "anyone who is in his presence feels incredibly small".

What do you think of these latest Arrow casting descriptions? Do you hope that "Angeline" is a code for Batwoman? Let us know what you think in the comments below.
