Deathstroke Returns In Promo Images For Next Week’s Arrow

After a couple of seasons with only one-off cameos for the supervillain, Manu Bennett returned as Oliver Queen’s nemesis Deathstroke in a big way at the end of Arrow season 5. After forming an uneasy alliance to defeat Prometheus, Slade Wilson will drop by Star City to ask a favor of Mayor Queen in a much-anticipated two-part storyline, which kicks off with next week’s suitably-titled “Deathstroke Returns.”

The old enemies will go on the hunt for Slade’s estranged son Joe, who’s been kidnapped by mercenaries. It sounds like it’s going to be a can’t miss outing for the show and now, you can check out some shots of the duo’s mission in the gallery of promo images below, as well as a look at what the rest of Team Arrow will get up to in the episode.

‘Arrow: The Complete Fifth Season’ DVD Review

It feels like recently I’ve been reviewing way too many superhero series. I’ve gone from the dorky style of Supergirl and Legends of Tomorrow, to the slightly more serious The Flash. Now it is time to look at Arrow: The Complete Fifth Season, which takes things even more seriously.

In Arrow: The Complete Fifth Season Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) is now mayor meaning that his balance between work and being the Arrow is even more complicated. When a new nemesis in the form of Prometheus arrives in Star City, Oliver’s eyes will be opened to who he really is, and what consequences his actions have.

While there is (normally) a light-hearted feel to the other DC shows, Arrow tends to take the darker tone. This is made obvious in this season when we see Oliver not afraid to kill his enemies for what he sees as the greater good.

Review: Arrow: The Complete Fifth Season

  • Comicmix
All along, showrunners Marc Guggenheim and Wendy Mericle have been telling us Arrow was seen as a five-year odyssey, intended to be the same amount of time post-Lian Yu, to show how he has grown since being stranded there. Other than that noble notion, the execution has been incredibly uneven season to season.

As the series entered its fifth year, they began the season uncertain if this was going to be its final one so they made certain things got tidied up. The tedious flashbacks had to wrap up the five years before the series’ start and move Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) and his friends towards a point where, should it be canceled, viewers were left satisfied.

Somewhere during the production of the final nine episodes, they got a sixth season renewal so shifted the planning to bring things to a climax and a cliffhanger. The messy 23 episodes are

Ragman Will Return In Arrow Season 6

After having witnessed what could only be described as a highly divisive fourth season of Arrow, devoted fans of the show such as myself were thrilled to see the producers turn things around with the fifth. Sure, matters like this are highly subjective, but I’m among the ilk that thought season 5 was among the series’ finest.

Among the many things that allowed the show to recapture its original magic was that despite it now existing in a universe populated by metahumans and mysticism, it got back to being a saga focused on urban vigilantes who (mostly) didn’t have any powers.

One of the exceptions to the rule was that of Joe Dinicol’s Rory Regan Aka Ragman. Powered by a suit comprised of rags rooted in the supernatural, he was one of the first additions to Team Arrow 2.0. And while he did likely accrue a fan base of his own,

How ‘Arrow’ Producers Tackled the Gun Violence Debate

How ‘Arrow’ Producers Tackled the Gun Violence Debate
This week’s episode of “Arrow” will feel a bit different.

The show’s latest installment titled “Spectre of the Gun,” which airs Wednesday, tackles the highly-controversial topic of gun control. The conversation in the episode begins after a masked man shoots up the Star City mayor’s office with many of the show’s main character’s inside. Following a press screening of the episode that Variety attended, executive producer Marc Guggenheim said they had wanted to do an episode like this for awhile.

“We went into Season 5 wanting to do an episode about an issue,” he said. “I grew up on ‘St. Elsewhere’ and ‘Picket Fences’ and ‘L.A. Law,’ and I grew up in a time where it was commonplace for a one-hour drama to tackle some of the issues of the day. Somewhere along the line the industry got away from that.”

Guggenheim cited shows like “Black-ish” and “The Carmichael Show” that continue to

Arrow Releases Two New Clips From Midseason Premiere

Well guys, this time of year can be a bit slow for the entertainment industry, and while we usually have a slew of Oscar contending movies being released, I have not seen much of that yet. In fact, it seems La La Land and Arrival are the recent releases for main contenders of the award. TV is even slower as many of our favorite shows like Arrow, Flash, Legends of Tomorrow, Supergirl, and The Walking Dead take a midseason break for a month or two.

But Fear Not, my hungry entertainment news loving friends, as the midseason premiere promo trailer has been released for Arrow. In addition, a clip from the return episode titled "Who Are You?" is also available for our viewing pleasure.

Former The Walking Dead Actress Juliana Harkavy Joins The Cast Of Arrow Season 5

According to Variety, Juliana Harkavy (The Walking Dead, Constantine, Dolphin Tale) has joined the cast of Arrow, and will make her debut during the back half of the current fifth season. Harkavy will play a detective named Tina Boland, who doesn't appear to be an established DC Comics character (I may be wrong about that, so please feel free to set me straight). Though it doesn't seem like she'll be a villain, from the sounds of this character description she will most certainly be a thorn in Oliver Queen's side. "A detective formerly of Central City, Boland is brash yet tactful, tough, speaks her mind, and is not the easiest person to impress. She also has a problem with vigilantes like Green Arrow (Stephen Amell) and his new team of recruits: Wild Dog (Rick Gonzalez), Artemis (Madison McLaughlin), Curtis Holt (Echo Kellum), and Ragman (Joe Dinicol). Arrow returns tomorrow night with "The Human Target.

‘The Walking Dead’ Actress Juliana Harkavy Joining ‘Arrow’ (Exclusive)

‘The Walking Dead’ Actress Juliana Harkavy Joining ‘Arrow’ (Exclusive)
Juliana Harkavy (“The Walking Dead,” “Constantine”) is joining CW’s “Arrow.”

Harkavy will have a recurring role as Tina Boland, a detective formerly of Central City. Boland is brash yet tactful, tough, speaks her mind, and is not the easiest person to impress. She also has a problem with vigilantes like Green Arrow (Stephen Amell) and his new team of recruits: Wild Dog (Rick Gonzalez), Artemis (Madison McLaughlin), Curtis Holt (Echo Kellum), and Ragman (Joe Dinicol). Harkavy’s character will join in the back half of the season.

The fifth season of “Arrow” has taken Oliver back to his more violent tendencies, seeing him start to kill again. Those homicidal urges, along with his training of a new wave of vigilantes to flood the streets, will no doubt be a source of friction between him and Boland.

This isn’t Harkavy’s first time playing in the DC universe: She had a guest spot on NBC’s

Arrow season 5 episode 4 review: Penance

Tyler McCarthy Oct 27, 2016

Is Oliver Queen more fuddy duddy paternal figure than action hero in Arrow season 5? Here's our look at the latest ep...

This review contains spoilers.

5.4 Penance

The past two episodes of Arrow have been focused heavily on building a team of newbies to help the now solo Oliver Queen in his ongoing quest to save Star City. The latest episode, Penance, was no different, except for one key thing - fun.

So far, these fresh young faces have been the functioning plot drivers of Season 5. Comprising the terrific Curtis Holt (Echo Kellum), Evelyn Sharp (Madison McLaughlin), Rory “Ragman” Regan (Joe Dinicol) and Rene “Wild Dog” Ramirez (Rick Gonzalez), this new team has been a little lacklustre thus far. It’s not their fault, they’re undergoing Oliver’s rigorous superhero training,

An Arrow Reminder: "There's No Secret That Doesn't Eventually Get Discovered"

An Arrow Reminder:
A reminder, in case you haven't been paying attention during the previous four seasons of Arrow: "There's no secret that doesn't eventually get discovered," says executive producer Marc Guggenheim. He's specifically referring to the fact that when Barry Allen changed the timeline on The Flash, Diggle (David Ramsey) and Lyla's (Audrey Marie Anderson) daughter, Sara, turned into their son, John Jr. But that rule can apply to pretty much anything on this show. Take, for example, the fact that Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) redirected a nuclear bomb toward new Team Arrow recruit Rory's (Joe Dinicol) home. Felicity came clean at the end of "A Matter of Trust," but it's probably...

Arrow season 5 episode 2 review: The Recruits

Tyler McCarthy Oct 13, 2016

Arrow strikes a balance between realistic superheroics and superhero realism in its latest episode, The Recruits...

This review contains spoilers.

5.2 The Recruits

The finale of Arrow Season 4 left us all scratching our heads thinking, “they sure have written themselves into a corner here, haven’t they?”

Oliver (Stephen Amell) and his estranged girlfriend, Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards), were the only members left on Team Arrow after various members quit or, you know, died. Somehow, in just two episodes, the series is edging out of that plot corner while simultaneously finding its footing in an expanding TV universe.

First, let’s go all the way back. The series started in 2012 with a heavily bearded man being discovered on a deserted island after five years stranded. That man ended up being the highly-trained archer and vigilante now known as The Green Arrow. Bob’s your uncle, a Deathstroke here,
