WARNING: This article may contain spoilers for the upcoming fourth season. Read on only to learn more about what will be happening in “Arrow” Season 4.
During the recently concluded San Diego Comic-Con, TV Line’s Michael Ausiello managed to sit down with the cast and producer Wendy Mericle at TV Line’s Hard Rock Hotel interview suite. The “Arrow” cast and Mericle revealed several things that will be happening in season four.
Mericle confirmed that there will be indeed a time jump. She said that season four will open five months after the events of the third season finale.
Stephen Amell, who portrays Oliver Queen or the “Arrow” revealed that fans of “Olicity” will find the pair back in Starling City. On the other hand, Mericle and Emily Bett Rickards, who portrays Felicity Smoak, mentioned that little hints of where they had been and had gone to during their romantic trip together will be dropped and hinted throughout the season.
Amell also mentioned that he was excited to begin working with actor Neal McDonough, who, according to another TV Line report, will be playing the DC villain Damien Darhk. He is described as a rival of Ra’s Al Ghul, and who has his own “clandestine group,” which Team Arrow might go against during the season.
According to Mericle and the cast, during the TV Line interview with Ausiello, Darhk is a villain unlike the others that were seen on the show. It was said that Dahrk has no moral code whatsoever, and described him as “pure evil” and the “heart of darkness”.
Amell also revealed that the villain, who may or may not be the main antagonist for the season, will already be in Starling City during the season four premiere.
This will, turn, according to “Doctor Who” and “Torchwood” actor John Barrowman, present a very interesting dilemma for Malcolm Merlyn, who is now the new head of the League of Assassins. He says that his character will now have to pick between helping Team Arrow against Darhk. He will be also taking on the duties and challenges that will beset him as the new Ra’s Al Ghul.
