You have too admit that Arsenal's new costume (as seen above) is just sweet, right? And that bow is so sleek. In case you're not an archer, that bow looks like it would be very nice on a range: that is, unless it was made to be a prop. Arrow's producer has also been vocal recently about some things we can expect to see from the third season of the show set to air early this October.
When asked about Canary's return, Executive Producer Andrew Kreisberg said:
We have her booked for three episodes, with hopefully more. She has come back to Starling City because she is on a mission... and that is all I can say. A lot of what we did in Season 1 was setting up Season 2," he teased. "You can be assured that a lot of the things we did in Season 2 are to help set up Season 3.
On the rumored supervillain of season 3 being Ra's Al Ghul:
You know us -- we're never one to do the logical thing! You know, I can't comment on that -- I can neither confirm nor deny. But rest assured, we have a lot of amazing stuff set up, mythology-wise, this year that will really feel like an extension of everything we've done before.
On new addition to the show, the Atom:
I think, in the great tradition of shows when they hit Season 3, we're bringing on a game-changing character, somebody who's brought on specifically to shake up all the characters, and we are overjoyed and beyond thrilled that Brandon is willing to come on. First of all, he's such an amazing guy. Beyond that, he's just such an amazing actor. One of the things we really wanted to inject more into the show was humor. What's funny about Oliver and Felicity is that he's the straight man. She sort of gets all the funny lines. What's great about having Brandon on the show is Brandon's an old-time movie star. He's like Jimmy Stewart. He can play that rat-tat-tat, Preston Sturges, you know, His Girl Friday with Felicity. He's obviously got the superhero looks and superhero physique, but he has the fun and funny and charm that Grant brings to Barry. Just from what I've seen so far in the dailies, we are so grateful that he's taken another step back into the DC Universe. Well, you don't bring Brandon Routh onto your show to not go down that path. As always with these things, how, when, where and why will be the journey of the season.
And finally, the sword-wielding fighting machine, Katana:
You know, Oliver has many, many skills, some of which we've seen and some we haven't -- and Katana is going to be another surprisingly large influence on his growth as both a hero and a fighting machine.
Arrow Season 3 airs this fall on CW's TV network on October 8th, 2014.
