Arrow executive producers Wendy Mericle and Marc Guggenheim sat down to discuss some behind the scenes details about the upcoming season 6, as well as a look back at season 5.
In the interview with The CW, the two discussed the explosive season 5 finale, Oliver and his son, and introducing Black Siren, as well as the future of the flashback narrative device.

“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”

6 Superheroes Who Deserve Animated Shows
One of the greatest tools in the craft of filmmaking is the often overlooked art of animation. Animation is a tool that can bring any drawable creation to life in vibrant ways without the limitations of a budget or having to find a way to pull something off in real life. Animation can be as far out and unhinged as it wants to be.
The art of the comic book is very similar to that of animation. Comics often show heroes doing things that could never happen in the real world. As much as live action can capture a lot of these moments, animation allows for much more freedom. Animated superhero shows have been popular for quite some time now, and some have even received critical acclaim for their depiction of comic book characters and honoring the source material.
With all this in mind, I decided to write about 6 heroes who deserve their own animated shows. Click Next to get started!
