Season 6 of Arrow will definitely be different than any that have gone before. And, recently, at the Heroes and Villains Fan Fest in Portland, OR, Stephen Amell revealed the changes he would like to see in the hero, Green Arrow.
He told the audience:
I’ve said that it’s very, very important that if Oliver doesn’t take away lessons from season five and doesn’t keep doing the things that have led to this catastrophic event, the character stops being interesting to me. So I hope that part of that, in season six and if we have seasons beyond that, I hope that part of that is we get back to a lot of the tenets that people recognize from the comics. And that of course is humor and a socially conscious, slightly liberal superhero.
There’s no debating that The CW’s Green Arrow is different from the comics. And, it’s definitely great to see a superhero evolve as time goes on. Here’s to hope that Team Arrow will be able to pull off a shift in the story without losing what has made Arrow great.
Arrow Season 6 premieres Thursday, October 12, 2017, at 8 p.m. EST/PST on The CW.
