So as most of you have probably heard about rumours that "Arrow"'s Stephen Amell is going to play rich boy Oliver Queen, or also known as the Green Arrow, in the upcoming "Justice League" movie. You have also probably heard that the Flash will be appearing half way through Season 2 of "Arrow" and that he will also be getting his own television show.
After the last episode of "Arrow" when Diggles was talking with Deadshot, Deadshot brought up a familiar name: H.I.V.E. The group known as H.I.V.E. is notorious for hiring serial killers like Deadshot and Deathstroke who is also known as Slade Wilson. For those of you that didn't know that, then yes, you have already been introduced to Oliver Queen's arch nemesis. That last episode though has brought up some questions though. Two questions I have is "Justice League" or "Teen Titans"?
You're probably thinking, how did Teen Titans get into this and why? Well let's start from the top. H.I.V.E. is a group who was first introduced in the "Teen Titans" show. Basically what they do is they hire serial killers to take over the world, to sum it all up, and they figured going after the Teen Titans would be best because if they succeeded then they would be known to the world. H.I.V.E. made an attempt to hire Slade but he said no at first, so instead they asked his son, Grant, who said yes. To make Grant stronger, H.I.V.E. injected him with some poison that would make him stronger by giving him the ability to use 100% of his brain or something like that. What they didn't tell him though is that if he used too much of this power, it would evidently kill him. Sure enough, he couldn't handle it and he was killed. Slade was there just in time to see his son die and because his contract wasn't fulfilled, Slade would offer to finish his son's job.
Now with all that said, I think with the mentioning of H.I.V.E. is a hint at "Justice League" or "Teen Titans" because the leader and only known member of H.I.V.E. is Professor Fargo (or doctor?) who everyone knows is an old foe of Wonder Woman. Does that mean we will see Wonder Woman in "Arrow"? Probably not seeing that there is so much controversy on who should play her in "Batman vs. Superman". But it's not a bad thing to get your hopes up. They could throw in another Justice League hero in the show (besides the Flash of course) like Cyborg, who is also part of the Teen Titans. I think it would be cool if they would throw in Green Lantern or even someone as epic as Batman or Superman, but that will most likely not happen. The odd reference may be mentioned here or there, but I don't think we will be seeing anyone more than the more less known heroes like Aquaman and Cyborg.
Stephen Amell also posted a picture on his Facebook that looks something like this:
I'm not sure why he would post this but it would be along the lines of him being in the Justice League movie, him saying he wants to be in the Justice League movie, or him saying we can expect Justice League in Arrow.
To get away from Justice League for a bit too, there's a slight chance we could see present day Slade Wilson very soon. Seeing that H.I.V.E. is mentioned and they are involved with his son Grant, he very well may be appearing soon. I think they'll show his Grant first entering the show as the bad guy and Oliver goes to save the day and as he does so, Grant reveals who's son he is. Then at some point after that, they'll reveal Slade.
That's my conclusion on last weeks episode. Tonight it seems like they're taking a break from the main story since they're bringing back the count. What are your thoughts on last week's episode with H.I.V.E.?
P.S. I'm a new writer on this site who is just starting out with articles like this. I like to post things in an opnionated point of view because it's fun. I'll be more than happy to take any pointers.
