Lots of news and pics to share with all of you Towelites out there who have been enjoying Arrow so far! The CW has ordered a full 22 episode season! No surprise here as it has been the most watched show on the network in years!! Maybe DC should be sticking to the TV format for their properties…..
Get ready for another DC villain to show up tonight, as Deadshot rolls into Starling City!! Here’s a promo for tonight’s episode, Lone Gunman, airing at 8pm EST.
I’ve been looking forward, as we all have, to some more insight to what happened on Purgatory Island. Well here are some spoilery pics featuring Oliver’s teacher on the island, Yao Fei (Byron Mann), and a little insight into why Deathstroke and his lackies are on the island!
So comparisons to Nolan’s The Dark Knight series are being made? Here’s what Stephen Amell has to say on the subject:
“The idea was to make it real…As real as you can make it. Now, I understand it’s TV and fantastical things are going to happen but as real as possible and that naturally takes you into the Chris Nolan universe. If you want to be snarky about it you can say, ‘Well, they’re copying Batman.’ Batman works! We’re basing large parts of Arrow on Green Arrow: Year One. In Green Arrow: Year One there are tons of people on the island, he gets hooked on heroin, people leave him for dead, really awful things happen to him and I think people want to see a superhero that can be injured. People want to see a super hero, I think, who is emotionally fragile; that had to make real sacrifices.”
Arrow is on the CW Wednesdays at 8pm EST!! Be sure to check out all of our Arrow coverage right here!
Stay tooned 😛
