Sneak Peek

EW Interview - Previewing the New Team Arrow
Thanks to tsukikomew for the heads up.

Come Wednesday, Team Arrow will have some brand new faces.

After the former team members all but move on with their lives, Oliver (Stephen Amell) has finally relented to training some newcomers, including Curtis (Echo Kellum), Wild Dog (Rick Gonzalez), and Evelyn Sharp (Madison McLaughlin). But Oliver’s never been one for great bedside manner, so his training methods won’t be conventional during Wednesday’s episode of Arrow.

“We have a lot of fun with his methods, which we already established as: He’s really, really, really hard on people,” executive producer Marc Guggenheim tells EW. “For what it’s worth, a lot of that made for some humorous moments, but also for some really kickass action. As far as how Oliver feels about [the new team], [episode] 502 is very much an episode about how Green Arrow and how Oliver Queen feels about it are two different things. 502 is very much about reconciling the difference.”

The premiere revealed Laurel’s last words: She pleaded with Oliver to make sure that she wasn’t the last Black Canary — that way, a part of her will always be out there with him. So, will there be a new Black Canary? “Who knows? Totally possible,” Guggenheim hedges. “I can definitely say not in the short term, and not Felicity [Emily Bett Rickards]. Various people have asked me, ‘Would you make Felicity Black Canary?’ My answer is that I wouldn’t make Felicity a masked superhero of any stripe.”
