Stephen Amell teased a few spoilers during his Panel at Heroes & Villains Fan Fest, that we would see a new suit at some point in Season 6, as well as a brand-new trick arrow that will come into play during the four-way Arrow-verse crossover. We do not know what this trick arrow will look like yet, but are hoping it will pack quite a punch (like the boxing glove arrow). That said, there’s one thing that we can all agree on: with a new suit on the way, it’s time for Oliver to get his fedora and goatee!
According to Stephen Amell, the newest introduction is being kept under wraps.
During his Panel at Heroes & Villains FanFest New Jersey, Amell was asked if he would be able to tease the opening narration from Arrow‘s upcoming Sixth season. But as he explained, the intro gives way too much away.
“Everyone always asks me if I will do the Arrow intro,” Amell revealed. “And I have to tell you, I can’t do it this year for a very specific reason. Because me doing the Arrow intro is probably the biggest spoiler that I can possibly drop about the show. Sorry. I would get in so much trouble.”
We’re under the assumption, that it’s because the introduction will address the aftermath of Arrow‘s season 5 finale, which saw almost all of the show’s main characters caught in an explosion on Lian Yu.
Arrow fans won’t have to wait too long to get some answers – and hear the new introduction – when the show returns on Thursday, October 12th on The CW.
Recently, Marc Guggenheim, an executive producer on The CW’s hit series, spoke about the possibility of Arrow‘s female characters uniting on a mission. But as he explained, it would need to bring in Sara Lance/White Canary (Caity Lotz), who is currently traveling through time on Legends of Tomorrow.
Quotes From Marc Guggenheim:
“It’s totally possible.” Guggenheim revealed to TVLine. “But truth be told, I wouldn’t want to do it unless we could figure out a way to get Sara in there as well. One of my favorite episodes was 406, where we had Speedy, Black Canary and Canary all fighting side-by-side-by side together, and that was a blast. Seeing three badass women was really, really awesome.”
“[An all-girls mission] is on our ‘bucket list,’” Guggenheim explained, “but I really want to figure out a way to get Sara in there as well.”
Going into its sixth season, Arrow has enough female characters for such a team-up to occur. With Thea Queen/Speedy (Willa Holland), Felicity Smoak/Overwatch (Emily Bett Rickards), Dinah Drake/Black Canary (Juliana Harkavy), and a soon-to-be redeemed Laurel Lance/Black Siren (Katie Cassidy), Guggenheim says that it’s certainly a possibility.
