Since the major cliffhanger in the Season 5 finale of The CW’s Green Arrow series Arrow, we have not gotten any new details about Season 6. But thanks to the latest edition of TV Line’s Inside Line with Matt Mitovich, we now have some new information about who the main villain might be for the sixth season.
When a fan asked for some scoops about the upcoming season, Mitovich teased that “the next, yet-to-be-cast Big Bad has been on many a fan’s wish list.” While Arrow has introduced pretty much most of Green Arrow’s Rogues Gallery, there is one that we have yet to meet: Onomatopoeia.
Back in the earlier seasons, there were plans to introduce the character, created by Kevin Smith, but the producers decided to scrap those plans. With the cast and creatives set to appear at San Diego Comic-Con this month, we’ll hopefully learn the identity of the new antagonist and who will be playing the character.
“After a violent shipwreck, billionaire playboy Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) was missing and presumed dead for five years before being discovered alive on a remote island in the North China Sea. He returned home to Star City, bent on righting the wrongs done by his family and fighting injustice. As the Green Arrow, he protects his city with the help of former soldier John Diggle (David Ramsey), computer-science expert Felicity Smoak (Emily Bett Rickards), his vigilante-trained sister Thea Queen (Willa Holland), Deputy Mayor Quentin Lance (Paul Blackthorne), brilliant inventor Curtis Holt (Echo Kellum), and his new recruits, street-savvy Rene Ramirez (Rick Gonzalez) and meta-human Dinah Drake (Juliana Harkavy). Oliver has finally solidified and strengthened his crime-fighting team only to have it threatened when unexpected enemies from his past return to Star City, forcing Oliver to rethink his relationship with each member of his “family”
Arrow Season 6 premieres on Thursday, October 12 at 9/8c on The CW.

5 Potential Marvel TV Shows To Rival HBO’s ‘Watchmen’
With news breaking that Damon Lindelof, the co-creator of both Lost and The Leftovers, is in talks to develop a Watchmen show for HBO, Marvel needs a new TV hit. Don’t get me wrong, I know Agents of Shield still has a huge following, but I stopped watching the Netflix shows during the second season of Daredevil. And FX’s Legion was just… okay for me. It’s not that I don’t love Luke Cage and Jessica Jones, but it’s not fair to put lower-tier characters like them in competition with a juggernaut like Watchmen.
HBO was clearly taking notes when Netflix started releasing their shows, so this seems like a great moment for Marvel to take some notes on their competition. If DC is going to churn out a Watchmen series, then Marvel needs to dig deep into their libraries to find stories worthy of being brought to the silver screen.
So hit Next to find out about five properties Marvel should consider adapting if they want to match HBO’s Watchmen.
