Arrow fans are receiving a lot of information about Season 4 this week, and there are some new spoilers on the new big bad and Team Arrow now available.
David Ramsey spoke with ComicBook.com about Arrow Season 4, and he revealed that it is finally Diggle’s season. He is now in charge of Team Arrow, and he will have a costume to conceal his identity from the world finally. That has been in the works since Season 1.
Ramsey also teased a bit about the big bad, and his connection to H.I.V.E. during the interview.
“Well, he has a personal connection to H.I.V.E., because his brother was killed by Deadshot, who was hired by H.I.V.E., so there’s a personal interest that he has in taking down that organization. And that’s the big baddie for the season: H.I.V.E. and I think Damien Darhk and a few others. So Diggle’s going to have a big, personal story this season. It will be, finally, Diggle’s season!”
As for Diggle and Oliver, their relationship will need to be mended during Season 4. Oliver did kidnap Lyla after all, but Diggle is upset at Oliver for more than just that. Ramsey revealed that the pair will work out their issues, and “it is going to be a baring of the soul” that fixes the issues between the two of them.
ComicBook.com also asked Ramsey about the DC world and the other characters inside it. Who would Ramsey like to see visit Arrow at some point? He revealed that he would like to Bruce Wayne on the series, and he would love to see Clark Kent. At some point, he would love to hear the names Gotham and Metropolis mentioned.
Marc Guggenheim teased more about the big bad to Entertainment Weekly. Previous Arrow spoilers shared by the Inquisitr teased that Damien Darhk “is a very different kind of villain.” Guggenheim elaborated on that to EW.
“[Oliver] left the city in very good hands. He entrusted Laurel, Diggle and Thea to mind the fort. Damien represents a threat that three heroes are not enough to combat. When we’ve written the villains — the big bads of the season — we always took the approach that they were heroes of their own story. They were doing the wrong thing for what they consider the right things. That’s not the case with Damien. He’s not nearly as moral. We wanted a villain who was pure evil because we’ve never really done that on the show before. That’s what Damien represents. He’s the prince of darkness.”
The arrival of this new villain will force Oliver to return to Starling City to help his friends. He will need a new identity when he returns, though.
