Stephen Amell, who plays Oliver Queen in Arrow, believes that the intro for the upcoming sixth season is a huge spoiler, which is why it has been kept under wraps.
Ever since the show premiered, the intro of the show has always begun with “I am Oliver Queen”, but the new intro is something that will spoil the season, according to Amell. This weekend, at the Heroes & Villains FanFest New Jersey (via comicbook.com), Amell was asked to tease the opening narration for the sixth season, but Amell refused to oblige, stating that it gives away too much:
“Everyone always asks me if I will do the Arrow intro. And I have to tell you, I can’t do it this year for a very specific reason. Because me doing the Arrow intro is probably the biggest spoiler that I can possibly drop about the show. Sorry. I would get in so much trouble.”
The intro more than likely harkens back to the events of the fifth season finale, where a majority of the main characters were caught in an explosion on Lian Yu. We’re still unaware as to which characters are alive or dead, so the intro will more than likely bring everyone up to speed as fast as possible.

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”
