This season of Arrow has been brutal thanks to Prometheus, one of Oliver Queen’s most versatile and chaotic villains. In actuality, Prometheus is Adrian Chase, the former district attorney. Despite being a high-profile individual in the Arrowverse, Chase managed to remain untouchable with a viable alibi and hostages at his leverage. For a majority of the season, Prometheus’ identity was a mystery, but he opted to reveal himself to Oliver and his team. Now that his identity is clear, he’s ramped up his evil shenanigans and has made it his duty to destroy the Green Arrow.
At Planet Comicon Kansas City, Arrow star Stephen Amell spoke to a fan named Michael Leslie at the panel, where he told him that Chase’s violent action will only get worse for Team Arrow during the fifth season. Amell also went on to praise the performance of Prometheus actor Josh Segarra. He described Prometheus as a great villain for the Arrow team to take on and described Segarra’s performance as “scary good”.
Amell also warned that things will get even worse for the Arrow team, stating this:
“Just you wait.”
As the fifth season continues to ramp up and become more chaotic, we can expect to see more of Arrow’s versatile slate of characters appear, such as Talia al Ghul and Deathstroke.
