COMIC-CON NEWS: ARROW Panel With Surprise Guest John Barrowman

Saturday, July 20, 2013.  5:15 p.m. – 6:00 p.m. Ballroom 20.

  • A surprise guest appearance by John Barrowman (The Dark Archer/Malcolm Merlyn) on stage wearing an Arrow t-shirt.  But it appears his character is dead  although  Stephen Amell (Oliver Queen/The Hood)  left an opening: “From what everyone tells me, it’s pretty much impossible to kill you.”  Barrowman joked that if he had been invited back for season two of Arrow it would be bigger than Doctor Who’s 50th Anniversary show (to which he famously wasn’t invited).

  • Opening and closing sizzle reel shows the highlights of season one and gives us a glimpse of season 2 premiere titled City of Heroes with an introduction to Summer Glau’s character and some footage filmed in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside of someone who looks a lot like the Black Canary. But it is only the beginning of that character’s story, producers say. This must be the epic overnight fight scene the Arrow Stunt Department spoke of. Meanwhile, Laurel Lance (Katie Cassidy) is going to start kicking butt, too. Where will this intersect?
  • Everyone seems to be shipping #Olicity — Oliver and Felicity as a couple. Emily Bett Rickards (Felcity) told the crowd that “shipping” was never part of her vocabulary before. Read More »COMIC-CON NEWS: ARROW Panel With Surprise Guest John Barrowman
