Arrow star Stephen Amell appeared at Dallas Comic-Con recently and unloaded plenty of information about the second half of Season 2 of the CW show. So without further ado, let's get right to the good stuff:
- Oliver's five years on the island will be shown throughout five seasons of the show. "Oliver has a back story...and we have a plan to tell that backstory over 5 seasons. That's the plan but all you ever think about is shooting Episode 18 right now. That's our forty-first episode...and all we think about is we need to make our forty-first episode better than our fortieth episode." (via Comic Book Movie)
- The Season 2 finale will be epic in its scope, but won't conclude filming until April 17. "Some people haven't heard about the size and scope of our finale. We are actually saving money on episodes we are shooting right now so that we can put it into the finale. And I have no idea how they are gonna turn that around in time."
- The Suicide Squad episode will focus on Diggle so much that Amell will only film four out of nine days, as opposed to the up to seven he usually films.
- "I want Ra's al Ghul on the show. Let me clarify something about the pronunciation of Ra's al Ghul. Because Nyssa in the most recent episode says Raysh, but its been established prior by people in Starling city saying its Razz. So I needed to follow suit despite mild protestations made by me. It would be fantastic to see that character on the show. We certainly name dropped him... a lot."
- Episode 15 is titled "The Promise" and will be all about Oliver and Laurel (Katie Cassidy). "Before flying here I watched episodes 14 and 15. There's a scene between Katie Cassidy and I in episode 14 that I'm incredibly proud of and as a whole... the episode 15 is called "The Promise"... and as a whole I was just blown away by that episode. I actually bought wi-fi on the plane yesterday so that I could be in email with the producers and the director just to say I'm very proud to be a part of this. Our 15th episode is by far our best episode of the series."
- On Roy's role on the team: "There is an uneasy alliance, because Oliver brought Roy into Team Arrow out of necessity not desire. He needed it at that particular moment. He's worried. Because, as we are about to explore about what's happened on the island, things so really bad with Slade, really, really bad. He's determined to not let that happen to Roy... but Roy has a lot to do to prove himself for Oliver to fully trust him."
