If you are into another superhero TV shows – like Daredevil, Gotham, the Flash, Smallville, and the upcoming Supergirl – you certainly have heard about Arrow. After all, one of the superheroes from DC universe has started its season 4 production. You can tell from the (quite) long season that it is considered promising. Well, the show started pretty good with promising story, so it is no wonder if CW has seen some potentials within it.
And in this season 4, a lot of things have happened. Besides the more complication in the story line, there are more casts and more changes – including in the costumes. Arrow is definitely not a TV series where everything is about rainbow and colorful hues as everything turn into bleak and very complicated moment. Mind you, you REALLY need to stay focused on the flick if you intend to understand the whole story and the overall development.
Well, anyway…as it was mentioned before, besides the story, major developments and changes have been made. For a starter, there will be Lady Cop in season 4. The cast has already been chosen – it will be Rutina Wesley, who has appeared in Hannibal and True Blood. Wesley will be playing as Liza Warner (Lady Cop’s original name), who is included within a special task force for anti-vigilante. In fact, Wesley has tried on the costume. The actor playing Captain Quentin Larry Lance, Paul Blackthorne, has revealed pictures of the new Arrow’s season 4 setting in his Twitter.
And as if it weren’t enough, CW (through Twitter account belonging to Lexi Alexander, the director) has finally released their official photos, including the photos of Lady Cop. It is also possible that Oliver will be getting a new costume, which is said to be darker and bleaker, but it’s still unconfirmed rumor and the studio hasn’t released any photos about it.
And besides the current news about Lady Cop character, Diggle will also get a new costume – although there are different opinions about it. Some call it as a costume, while some don’t. Marc Guggenheim, the executive producer, confirmed that Diggle (played by David Ramsey) will be wearing a new suit, despite his lack of enthusiasm. Diggle simply follows Oliver’s suggestion to conceal his identity and being practical, Diggle chooses the suit.
The story itself has developed further. After defeating his most dangerous enemy and planning to start a new life outside Starling City with Felicity Smoak, Oliver Queen hopes to start a new life. However, will his past as Arrow be forgotten completely? Will he be able to start a new life without his ‘Arrow’ identity? Even if he manages to start over, what about his team? Will Laurel, Thea, and Diggle be able to continue his legacy? And what about the new Ra’s al Ghul?
If you want to know more about Arrow season 4, it will premiere on Wednesday, October the 7th at 8 PM. Most of the casts are still the same, including Stephen Amell (Arrow/Oliver Queen), David Ramsey (John Diggle), Katie Cassidy (Dinah Lance/ Laurel), Paul Blackthorne (Det. Lance), Willa Holland (Thea Queen), and Emily Bett Rickards (Felicity Smoak).
