TV Friendships: Will 'Arrow' season 5 bring Oliver, Diggle closer together?

TV Friendships: Will 'Arrow' season 5 bring Oliver, Diggle closer together? | ARROWTV | Scoop.it
It seems like a perfect place to start this TV Friendships article series with “Arrow” and Oliver and Diggle, given that this was a friendship central to the series at the very beginning. It was all the way back in the pilot when their friendship developed; the photo above is from season 1, and then Team Arrow was certainly small and consistently mostly of these two plus Felicity Smoak. They’ve been through a lot, and you certainly have to wonder if they can ever get to the place that they were before the end of season 3, where Oliver put Diggle’s wife Lyla in grave danger.
webgurl's insight:
I think perhaps at the beginning they try to remain in contact, but become estranged over the season.

Arrow Season 5 Premiere To Reveal Black Canary's Final Words

Arrow Season 5 Premiere To Reveal Black Canary's Final Words | ARROWTV | Scoop.it
Team Arrow is at a bit of a crossroads leading into season five. There was enough death to go around in season four, and it's affected the team significantly.

Now it's about picking up the pieces, but fans can still expect the death of Katie Cassidy's Black Canary to play a big part in the character arcs throughout the new season. That said, there is still one big mystery surrounding the fallen hero that needs explaining, and that is what she told Oliver right before she died.

Arrow's Executive Producer Wendy Mericle recently spoke to TV Guide (via SpoilerTV) about the upcoming season, and addressed those final words directly.

"We're as curious as you are, but the good news is, the wait is almost over. According to Mericle, the late Black Canary's last words will be revealed in the season premiere."

Kevin Smith Knows How Onomatopoeia Could Work on 'Arrow'

Kevin Smith Knows How Onomatopoeia Could Work on 'Arrow' | ARROWTV | Scoop.it
Ever since he directed an acclaimed episode of The Flash‘s second season, Kevin Smith has been very public about how much he wants to follow that up by writing an episode of The Flash‘s sister show Arrow. He knows just what villain would feature in that episode, too.Back in 2002, the Clerks director was writing Green Arrow comics and created a new villain for the Emerald Archer to face — Onomatopoeia. As the name suggests, this supervillain’s gimmick was that he would enunciate the sound of the crime he had committed. For instance, if he blew something up, he would say ‘boom’. The character isn’t one who would naturally work off the page, but Smith knows just how he could adapt him.Speaking to Den of Geek, Smith explained his new idea for Onomatopoeia:“I’ve figured out a way to do it that is kinda bad-ass, and also connects to comics more or less. So instead of just doing the actual sound – which to me, in the real world, would be like the dude from Police Academy making noises with his mouth – he’ll just have little cards. Business cards that have typewritten words of whatever the fuck. So instead of him saying ‘blam’, you’d find this card on your desk and turn around and ‘blam’, he’d shoot you and stuff like that. Which I think is a little more chilly, you know, for doing it in live action. “

How Supergirl (and Superman) Could Join The Flash and Arrow’s Universe - IGN

With the recent news that Supergirl will be flying from CBS next season to join her superhero cousins at The CW, fans are excited at the prospect of Kara Danvers and company lining up more closely with the worlds of The Flash, Arrow and Legends of Tomorrow.

How Willa Holland Feels About Arrow's Suicide Squad Being Taken Away

How Willa Holland Feels About Arrow's Suicide Squad Being Taken Away | ARROWTV | Scoop.it
Back in Arrow Season 2, the show introduced the Suicide Squad, the infamous group of incarcerated bad guys who are sent on dangerous missions by the government in exchange for leniency. It looked like the team had a bright future ahead of them on the series, but months later, the Suicide Squad movie was announced for the DC Extended Universe. Since then, Arrow’s Suicide Squad has been phased out, and Willa Holland, a.k.a. Thea Queen, isn’t pleased about how this all went down.This past weekend at MCM London Comic-Con (via Mirror), Holland explained how the Suicide Squad was intended to have a recurring role on Arrow, and the DCEU developments ruined those plans. She explained:We were about season two when they started telling us we had to start basically killing off the Suicide Squad that we were starting to build on our own. We were actually trying to build that on our own on the show, and I guess once DC found out they were going to be doing their own movie of it, we had to ax all of the characters before we even got to show them, which was a little annoying at first.
webgurl's insight:
I'm with Willa. I'm excited to see the Suicide Squad movie, but disappointed that Arrow was forced to kill of Suicide Squad members and Amanda Waller for it.

Synopses For Season Finales of The Flash, Gotham and Arrow

Synopses For Season Finales of The Flash, Gotham and Arrow | ARROWTV | Scoop.it
Well we appear to have a sudden barrage of season finale synopses of all the DC shows currently on air.Arrow"Oliver (Stephen Amell) teams up with a surprising force in an attempt to stop Damien Darhk (guest star Neal McDonough) and his magic once and for all."Now that is cause for hype. Who is the ‘surprising’ force? I wouldn’t count on a past ally like The Flash, Vixen or Constantine to be the surprising force. It’s someone who’s supposed to be an enemy. Biggest guest here: Malcolm Merlyn. Obviously, Darhk did something to piss him off and now he’s all #TeamArrow. Do remember that Thea’s trapped in that underground prison with Darhk’s henchmen. He could certainly do much to piss off Malcolm. The episode titled “Schism” airs on May 24.

How Arrow Is Keeping Its Fights Realistic In Season 5 - CINEMABLEND

How Arrow Is Keeping Its Fights Realistic In Season 5 - CINEMABLEND | ARROWTV | Scoop.it
As its name would suggest, the Arrow-verse started in 2012 with Arrow's grounded, gritty world of street-level crime fighting. That's the show we fell in love with; the character of Oliver Queen simply works best when he's kicking ass and taking names in a realistic way. Now it seems that the folks behind the series have completely realized that. In fact, Arrow executive producer Wendy Mericle recently explained how other depictions of the Russian mafia influenced the gritty realism of Arrow's Season 5 fight scenes. She elaborated:Everyone on staff watched Eastern Promises. I watched documentaries about Bratva and how they operate in Russian prisons... We're dealing with the Bratva, and the Bratva is, as we all know, a pretty interesting and messed-up institution. I might get shot for saying that, but hey!

‘Arrow’ Season 5 Villain Linked To Someone Oliver Hurt In Season 1

‘Arrow’ Season 5 Villain Linked To Someone Oliver Hurt In Season 1 | ARROWTV | Scoop.it
Many thought the major villain of Arrow Season 5 would be a Star City crime boss named Anton Church, but longtime Arrow fans had a hunch it had to be someone even badder. Now showrunner Wendy Mericle has confirmed speculation about the identity of the Green Arrow’s next adversary.

If Mericle's statements are any indication, the villain could potentially be someone we’ve met previously. She recently spoke with TV Guide magazine for a special San Diego Comic-Con issue and revealed this big bad has one goal: revenge. The villain is “somebody Oliver unwittingly created in Season 1 when he was a killer in a hood… this guy is going to be collateral damage who lost someone to the hood and has spent the last several years training and plotting for revenge. He will be a true dark mirror to Oliver Queen,” Mericle said.

Arrow Season 5: Stephen Amell Says Villain is a ‘Callback’ to Season 1

Arrow Season 5: Stephen Amell Says Villain is a ‘Callback’ to Season 1 | ARROWTV | Scoop.it
Some TV shows that have struggled in recent years, or maybe didn’t deliver according to expectations set by their earlier successes have a couple of options when considering what to do next. One of the more popular has been that of the soft reboot, a restructuring of the series in an attempt to work out certain kinks or just make as close to a fresh start as possible. The other option is to make a concerted effort to return to the show’s roots and to rediscover what made it so successful in the first place. The latter seems to be what Arrow has in mind for season 5In all the press that’s been handled by the cast and crew of Arrow since the season 4 finale, one eventuality that has come up several times over is the idea of doing what the show does best.
