e allora iniziamo subito con 6 spoiler da zap2it
1. More Deadshot! If you were wondering what happened to Diggle's vendetta against Floyd Lawton, the assassin murdered his brother, rest assured that it's still burning him up. "Diggle's pursuit of Deadshot is going to be a big part of Season 2," Kreisberg reveals. "The finale was already bigger and crazier and more nuts than we ever envisioned, so it's not like we dropped the ball with that story, it story was just a story we knew could live on into Season 2. Don't worry. It is far from dropped."
2. Roy Harper getting closer to The Hood. "We'll definitely find out how Oliver feels about taking Roy on as part of the team in Season 2," Kreisberg says. "Oliver Queen and Roy Harper will have a long and storied career together. As with all of these things, especially stuff that's derived from the comic books, we've tried to both satisfy fans' expectations, and turn them on their head. I think that Roy's desire to be under the Arrow and Oliver's desire to be as private a person as possible are going to collide."
3. More epic Island sequences. Obviously, after tonight's finale, there's plenty of story to cover on the Island in Season 2 -- and in fact, it's the first thing the writers told Amell about when he asked them for scoop about what's to come. "I think the story on the Island is really mapped out. If you talked with Andrew and Marc [Guggenheim], they would say that this year in Epsiode 5 when we introduced Edward Fyres and faux-Deathstroke, that was when they really discovered what the Island can be. I think they have a really cool idea and really have it mapped out for what the Island will be in Season 2."
4. Diggle-centric flashbacks. Amell hopes to see David Ramsay get to be the leading man in an episode (and not just because it'd afford Amell a few days off, as Kriesberg jokes!). "The producers have done a really good job this year of really molding the rest of our cast into people that can carry episodes at a time," Amell says. "I don't think any part of the fan base would complain if all the sudden we announced we were going to have a Diggle-centric episode. David has earned the right and I hope he gets it." Adds Kreisberg, "Doing flashback episodes to Diggle's life -- whether it's in Afghanistan, or when his brother was alive -- we're definitely interested in that. We have this amazing table of actors. Certainly David Ramsay could be the lead of his own show if he wanted to, so we'd love to see more of him."
5. Thea is all grown up. A lot of what she witnessed in the finale will have a deep, profound impact on her in the future. "Nobody is ending this season the way they started. She really underwent an evolution this season, and in Season 2 when the characters pick up, we'll see a Thea who has really internalized her experience, one who has really grown a great deal. That's exciting for Willa and it's exciting for us as writers," Kreisberg says. Amell is looking forward to Oliver and Thea being on more equal footing as she matures. "Willa continues to impress. I think it's really fantastic because Willa is such a wonderful actor and I feel like she is just sitting there just waiting to be really utilized," he says. "I think it would be very exciting in coming seasons to put them more on an adult level relationship because [Willa] is so capable and is going to be a huge asset to the show."
6. Some changes at the Queen household. "We had a line we had to cut out of episode 22, which was Felicity saying, 'Man, Thanksgiving at the Queen house is really going to suck this year,'" Kreisberg jokes. There's still hope to rebuild the relationship between Moira and Oliver, of course. "If ever there was a hero who could understand what Moira has done, it's Oliver. Oliver made a lot of difficult decisions himself those five years on the island, and not all of them were the right decision. He can understand how she can find herself in the place that she did." Amell just hopes Oliver moves out of his mom's house soon enough. "God, I hope so," he says. "I mean, he's like 30 years old! He needs to get his own apartment. Quote me on that one."
poi: intervista di EW
all' EP Marc Guggenheim!
Where does season 2 go from here? “Our whole approach to the show has always been, we like to pass the time in-between episodes in real-time. So we will feel that three-to-four month gap, but basically The Glades being destroyed, I keep referring to it as season 2’s version of ‘the notebook.’ The notebook was the main thing that created a lot of story engine for us and the consequences and the figurative after-shocks of the earthquake are going to provide the new story engine for season 2.”
The way-cool effects: “The explosion on the island, that’s real — that was an actual explosion that was shot. The only thing that was added with visual effects was the missile itself. I actually felt bad for the special effects guys because I thought the explosion looked so good that people would think it was a computer effect. But that was all practical. One of the advantages of knowing what we were going to do early on was we were able to set aside money as we were going through the season. we called it ‘the kitty,’ where we just kept putting money aside.”
What’s the deal with Det. Lance? “We have really exciting plans for Lance in season 2. I don’t want to spoil them, but he definitely turns a corner in the finale as far as The Hood is concerned. Our goal has always been to make him our version of Commissioner Gordon. What I will say is that the scene that he has with Lieutenant Pike, where he basically outs himself as having worked with The Hood instead of capturing him, that will have huge repercussions for him in season two.”
Felicity, Dig, and Oliver unite! “I think that trinity, that trio, has really benefited us, in large part because the actors are so strong and they’re so good together and Diggle and Felicity and Oliver are all very different kinds of characters, so the key I think, when you’re putting together a group like that, is that they not all be so similar that it’s like an echo chamber.”
Killing Tommy: “We creatively opened ourselves up to the possibility of killing Tommy around the time we were doing episode 16. I think around episode 18 is when we fully committed to doing it. I can’t say enough about what a class act Colin Donnell is. He gave 120 percent every single day, every single scene, every single line of dialogue, from the moment he found out what our plans were all the way up to the very end. People on the crew were asking us, ‘Look at what Colin is doing. Have you changed your mind?’ Killing Tommy was never about Colin’s performance. It was always about if we do this, what stories does it tell? It’s definitely something I feel conflicted about, but that said, I think it was the right thing — especially as we start to talk about season two [and] the impact that Tommy’s death has on not just on Oliver, but all of our characters.
Is Malcolm Merlyn really dead? “Well, it certainly looks that way. John Barrowman is amazing and we love him and the one thing I will say with respect to both Tommy’s death and Malcolm Merlyn’s death is this is a show that does flashbacks.”
e ancora: sempre Marc Guggenheim, stavolta per movieweb
, ridà vita ad un rumour sulla possibile entrata in scena di un altro importantissimo personaggio dall'universo DC Comics:
The CW Network series Arrow is considering plans to bring another emerald-clad superhero onto the show, as Ryan Reynolds may reprise his role as Hal Jordan aka Green Lantern.
Here's what executive producer Marc Guggenheim had to say about the Ferris Air reference from the 2011 Green Lantern movie .
"If all goes according to plan, when you see the Ferris Air logo later in the season, it will be the same logo that we established in the movie. I like tips of the hat."
Marc Guggenheim, along with the series' co-creator Greg Berlanti, wrote the screenplay for the 2011 movie Green Lantern, which starred Ryan Reynolds as Hal Jordan/Green Lantern and Blake Lively as Carol Ferris.
When asked about both Hal Jordan or Carol Ferris making an appearance, the executive producer wouldn't say one way or another, but did hint that he may bring Ryan Reynolds back.
"I would never say never. It's certainly something that we've talked about. As with all DC characters, we have to figure out a way for those characters to fit within our Arrow universe. But when you consider the importance that Hal Jordan plays in the Green Arrow comics, it's certainly one of those names that we've discussed a great deal. I have Ryan Reynolds' phone number around here somewhere."
