My guess is that they are going to be exploring the vigilante type that Oliver used to be and explore the very different ways that can do.  The early discriptions of Wild Dog seem to indicate that he'll end up being Mentored by Oliver, while Vigilante seems to be the main antagonist for the season.  So I think we'll see both start out the same but while Wild Dog excepts the Green Arrows mentorship and becomes gradually more heroic, Vigilante will reject it and become gradually more violent.

Makes sense.
I think Vigilante's alter ego was a DA, no? If so, maybe he is an ally of new mayor Oliver Queen at first. Echoing the Harvey Dent-Batman dynamic.

Hope they pull off a good year, it's been two meh ones in a row.

I could believe that.
Though if the next villain on one of the CW superhero shows is Christopher Eccleston or Matt Smith in a suit I'm going to laugh my butt off....and then enjoy the heck out of that because that would probably be awesome.

Considering that everyone played at least 2 comic book characters,Eccleston could happen.Stanley Dover Elder?
I have been saying that since the start,but it would be cool if they introduce Hitman next season.Or Unknown Soldier.I can only hope.

Stephen Amell's Oliver Queen will fight Dolph Lundgren as a Russian villain during the Russia flashbacks this year.

I'm not even a Dolph Lundgren fan...and that is awesome!  :thumbup:

-They will borrow a line from Rocky IV. I think we know what line that is. "I must break you."
-Amell didn't even know until the news hit. He was freaking out on twitter. That's awesome.

I would assume he's KGBeast, except the KGBeast was already in Arrow. That being said, considering there was more than one Deathstroke and more than one Count Vertigo, they could totally have more than one KGBeast. And I think they should, because Lundgren is more suited to play the character than the guy who played him last in Arrow anyway.

Man, I'd love to see the Golden Ave Vigilante.  He wouldn't work on a show so dedicated to DRAMA!, but I do love that character.

He probably wouldn't have fit in in Arrow, but he would have been right at home in Legends of Tomorrow.

If only that show wasn't so bad:P

Although, if he were actually PLAYED by Nathan Fillion, I'd grin and bear it to watch those episodes.

IIRC Nathan is currently Wonder Man,so no chance of showing up here.
I hope this will be a better season then the previous two.But Im not all that optimistic.

So rewatching the Arrow, season 5 premiere and I think, overall, the episode was pretty good.  The pacing, the action, characters weren't sticking out like sore thumbs.  But there were still a few "surprises" or disappointments.

I'm committed to watch and will, but a lot of what dragged last season was the emotional baggage between Oliver and Felicity.  Maybe they've fixed it...  Keep it basic.  Hopefully.

I agree Shogunn (with the spoiler stuff).  I'm committed to watching this show too.  It is still pretty decent.  I'm kinda glad to see some parts went back to the roots of season 1.  Besides, after watching Flash this season IMO Arrow is off to a better start.  I see more potential here.  I'm excited about the new team.

I do not like that Ollie is back to killing again. Granted, Dahrk deserved it at the end of last season and that was pretty much the only sure way to stop him. But Green Arrow being an indiscriminate killer again is a step backward.

Agreed. I understand his reasoning, but killing off random thugs is not the same as killing a mass murderer.

If they brought in a good version of the Question, that might even be enough to get me to watch that show.

So... yeah, this week's episode happened. I'm gonna be honest, the reveal on this one actually surprised me. I'm not usually blindsided by non-BS plot twists like this, since I'm usually pretty intuitive about where mysteries like this are gonna go... but yeah, no, they got me good. Spoilers for episode 15, ye are warned
