Arrow Season 5 is coming soon and makers of the hit TV series promise an action-packed season with lots of comebacks and crossovers. This season is especially important for the CW TV series as they will celebrate their 100th episode.
Stephen Amell, the actor who plays the role of Oliver Queen a.k.a Arrow, tells Comic Book exciting news. He reveals that some DC superheroes will do a crossover during the 100th episode. He further reveals that some of the heroes who will attend the crossover reunion are Legends of Tomorrow, The Flash and Supergirl.
There are also former roles in the series that will be brought back to life in season 5. Oliver’s parents Robert Queen (Jamey Sheridan) and Moira Queen (Susanna Thompson) are going to make a reappearance on the show. Along with Laurel Lane a.k.a Black Canary (Katie Cassidy) and villain Slade Wilson a.k.a Deathstroke (Manu Bennett).
Amell also shares to Comic Book that the 100th episode is their most ambitious project yet. “The hundredth episode of ‘Arrow’ begins in a very appropriate way: it begins with Oliver running. We’ve had him running into the premiere almost every year, we didn’t have him running in this year, but we have him running in the hundredth episode,” reports iTech Post.
