The Arrow crew is ready for Season 3 if this official poster the CW released is any indication. Ollie, Felicity, Roy, Diggle and Laurel just wrecked shop as the scene behind them demonstrates. And with a slew of new characters - friend and foe - the season has all the makings of being the best one yet. Not to mention some highly anticipated romantic sparks between Ollie and Felicity. Olicity is happening folks!
Some well known DC Comics characters as well as new ones joining the fray this season include Ra's al Ghul (Matt Nable), the Atom/Ray Palmer (Brandon Routh), Thea's new romantic interest (Austin Butler), Wildcat/Ted Grant (J.R. Ramirez), Felicity’s mother (Charlotte Ross), Maseo (Karl Yune), Katana (RilaFukushima), a new Count Vertigo (Peter Stormare), Felicity's college ex (Nolan Funk), Digger Harkness/Captain Boomerang (Nick Tarabay) and Mark Shaw/Manhunter (David Cubitt).
“In the aftermath of this victory, Season 3 opens with Arrow now a hero to the citizens of Starling. Crime is down, people feel safer, and Captain Lance even calls off the Anti-Vigilante Task Force. Basking in his success, Oliver believes he can finally have a private life and asks Felicity out on a date. But the second Oliver takes his eye off the ball, a deadly villain reappears in Starling, forcing Oliver to realize that he can never be Oliver Queen — not as long as the city needs The Arrow.”
Arrow returns Oct. 8 on The CW.
