Stephen Amell’s Oliver Queen just got an amazing new intro on Arrow that teases his role in the upcoming Arrwoverse crossover.
With Crisis on Infinite Earths looming over the Arrowverse, the Arrow star just debuted a brand new intro for the final season of Arrow. After Stephen Amell’s Emerald Archer made a deal in the last Arrowverse crossover to save the lives of Supergirl and The Flash, he now has to travel the multiverse collecting heroes and important items for the Monitor ahead of Crisis on Infinite Earths. Stephen Amell’s Arrow has always had an iconic intro, but the new version really teases the coming Crisis.
While it starts off with his usual “My name is Oliver Queen…” spiel, the intro tidily explains that the Arrow star’s final season focuses on the hero’s journey through the multiverse to protect the Arrowverse. He also explains that he’ll have to become someone else, which is almost a literal explanation of the premiere, since Stephen Amell’s Oliver Queen dropped into another Earth in the place of his doppelganger. Take a look at the Arrow star’s new intro below.
“My name is Oliver Queen. For seven years, I have fought with only one goal — to save my city. But now, a new threat has emerged, a danger so severe, it has forced me to leave my family in order to face it. And it won’t be enough for me to just be the Green Arrow. To prevent the Crisis that’s coming, I’m going to have to become someone else. I’m going to have to become something else.”

Here is the official synopsis for the final season of Stephen Amell’s Arrow:
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, Oliver successfully saved his city with the help of his team including former soldier John Diggle (David Ramsey), computer-science expert Felicity Smoak (Emily Bett Rickards), former protégé Roy Harper (Colton Haynes), street-savvy Rene Ramirez (Rick Gonzalez), metahuman Dinah Drake (Juliana Harkavy), brilliant inventor Curtis Holt (Echo Kellum) and Earth-2 Laurel Lance (Katie Cassidy). In the wake of discovering what his future holds, Oliver will find himself pit against his most challenging battle yet, one that will leave the multiverse hanging in the balance. In Arrow’s final season, Oliver Queen is forced to confront the reality of what it means to be a hero.
Arrow stars Stephen Amell, David Ramsey, Echo Kellum, Rick Gonzalez, Juliana Harkavy, Kirk Acevedo, Sea Shimooka and Katie Cassidy Rodgers.
Stephen Amell’s Arrow airs on Tuesday nights after The Flash at 9 ET on The CW.
