After a violent shipwreck, billionaire playboy Oliver Queen was missing and presumed dead for five years before being discovered alive on a remote island in the Pacific. When he returns home to Starling City, his devoted mother Moira, much-beloved sister Thea, and best friend Tommy welcome him home, but they sense Oliver has been changed by his ordeal on the island. While Oliver hides the truth about the man he's become, he desperately wants to make amends for the actions he took as the boy he was. Most particularly, he seeks reconciliation with his former girlfriend, Laurel Lance. As Oliver reconnects with those closest to him, he secretly creates the persona of Arrow - a vigilante – to right the wrongs of his family, fight the ills of society, and restore Starling City to its former glory. By day, Oliver plays the role of a wealthy, carefree and careless philanderer he used to be - flanked by his devoted chauffeur/bodyguard, John Diggle - while carefully concealing the secret identity he turns to under cover of darkness. However, Laurel's father, Detective Quentin Lance, is determined to arrest the vigilante operating in his city. Meanwhile, Oliver's own mother, Moira, knows much more about the deadly shipwreck than she has let on – and is more ruthless than he could ever imagine.
Much like past seasons, Arrow Season 4 is set to introduce quite a few new characters pulled directly out of the DC comic books. Heck, it's even bringing back Hellblazer from the failed NBC series Constantine, with Matt Ryan set to reprise his title role. But there are two superhero characters who we've been told will never show up on the small screen. The Dark Knight and the Man of Steel. And we only have Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice to blame for that. But Arrow star Stephen Amell doesn't think it will always be this way. He actually envisions a day when Bruce Wayne will come to Star City (yes, Starling City is getting a name change this year).
Stephen Amell was one of the bigger stars that appeared at this weekend's Wizard World Comic Con, taking a break from his intense match against Stardust at WWE SummerSlam 2015. There, ComicBookMovie managed to catch a couple of quotes from Oliver Queen. The actor believes that Arrow can definitely introduce Bruce Wayne at some point during the series, even with Gotham currently setting up his origin story on Fox.Read More
Earlier this month, it was confirmed that Arrow star Stephen Amell, an unabashed fan of the WWE, would be getting in the ring at WWE SummerSlam 2015. Stephen Amell teamed up with WWE Superstar Neville (a.k.a. Ben Satterly) for a tag-team match with the actor's rival Stardust and Barrett at the pay-per-view event, a match that didn't disappoint. If you didn't watch WWE SummerSlam 2015 last night, there will be SPOILERS for the event, so read on at your own risk.
As expected, Stephen Amell and Neville emerged victorious over Stardust and Barrett, but many fans probably weren't expecting the actor to perform so well in the squared circle. After the match, WWE released a video from the SummerSlam match's final moments, where Stephen Amell flung himself off the top rope to take out both of his opponents outside of the ring. He then threw Barrett back into the ring, enabling his partner to pull off his finishing move, appropriately dubbed the Red Arrow, to secure the victory.Read More
It's official! Arrow is fighting Stardust in the ring at WWE SummerSlam 2015! A war has been brewing for a long time between Arrow star Stephen Amell and WWE Superstar Stardust. It was announced early last week that Stephen Amell will face off against his opponent at the annual event. Now, in a new Facebook video, The CW star has confirmed that he will be wearing his iconic costume during the brawl.
Stephen Amell and WWE Superstar Stardust have been engaged in a heated Twitter War for quite sometime. Stephen Amell is a huge WWE fan, claiming he's been a fantastic since it was called the WWF. He's basically been begging the WWE to let him participate in some capacity. On last week's Monday Night RAW, he finally got his wish. He was allowed to be a guest. And the build-up and insults leading to his bought with Stardust were very intense.Read More
With production under way on Season 4 of The CW's hit series Arrow, we have already gotten a look at Team Arrow's new high-tech "cave." Earlier today, series star Paul Blackthorne, who plays Quentin Lance, revealed a photo from the set, which confirms that the name of Oliver Queen's hometown Starling City has been officially changed to Star City. The actor is seen holding up his new Star City Metro Police badge, with co-star David Ramsey (Diggle) in the background.
You may recall that, at Comic-Con last month, Arrow star Stephen Amell took to the stage, showing off his new costume, where he made a point to call Oliver's hometown Star City, not Starling City. During Season 3, Ray Palmer (Brandon Routh) mentioned changing the Starling City name to Star City as part of a rebranding effort, since the city had been constantly under attack by numerous villains. Now it seems it will be the official city name in Arrow Season 4. We won't find out exactly why the name was changed until this new season debuts in October.Read More
