SDCC 2016 First Look at Arrow Season 5
The highly anticipated trailer for Season 5 of Arrow debuted at San Diego Comic Con! The preview featured a lot of exciting highlights of what’s to come, especially the new Team Arrow. They’re by no means perfect, but they’re eager to learn and have been inspired by Oliver’s actions as the Green Arrow.
Oliver himself is trying to deal with the aftermath of Season 4: losing Laurel and most of his team, but gaining the position of mayor. Oliver is also stuck in a mindset that things will go back to how they were before, and it’s up to his new team to show him that he (once again) has to change. This trailer gives us brief introductions to each of them: Artemis, Wild Dog, and Mr. Terrific.
There’s one other newcomer who has yet to be identified: the mysterious figure Oliver encounters in an alley. He seems to be wearing red, which of course makes me think it might be Roy. It has been confirmed that Colton Haynes will be reprising his role as Roy Harper for Season 5, so for now that’s my number one guess.
And finally, this trailer teases next season’s flashbacks, which take place during Oliver’s time in the Bratva. Personally, I’m excited to see past Oliver off the island and dealing with the Russian mafia. I think the possibilities are a lot more exciting in that atmosphere as Oliver will likely have to play both warrior and diplomat.
