ARROW: Marc Guggenheim Talks Deathstroke, the Huntress, And John Barrowman's Character

In this video interview, the executive producer of The CW's Arrow talks about bringing in renowned DC Comics characters such as the Huntress and Deathstroke, as well as the significance of John Barrowman's character, whose appearance will bring a lot of change to the series. Check it out...

During the New York Comic-Con event, IGN managed to conduct this interview with Arrow executive producer, Marc Guggenheim, in which he discusses the series' "grounded" approach by comparing it to Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight saga. He also talks about iconic characters such as Deathstroke and the Huntress - specifically, the latter's dynamics with Stephen Amell's Oliver Queen - and the possibility for the supporting characters to evolve, as well as John Barrowman's mysterious character, who is still only known as the "Well-dressed man," up to this point. Of course, Guggenheim strictly keeps the true identity of the character a secret, but he does promise that the character's appearance is like "a stone thrown into a pond," and that he will cause ripple effects to the whole series...

The site's also got more interviews with the stars of the series, such as Willa Holland (Thea Queen) and Katie Cassidy (Laurel Lance), so be sure to follow the link provided below to check them out right on the site.

Arrow follows billionaire playboy Oliver Queen, who returns home to fight crime and corruption as the vigilante "Arrow" after being stranded on a deserted island for five years. Featuring a main cast line that consists of Stephen Amell, Katie Cassidy, Colin Donnell, David Ramsey, Willa Holland, Susanna Thompson, and Paul Blackthorne, the series premiered on The CW on October 10, 2012.

I'm honestly wondering if Barrowman will actually end up playing Bruce Wayne.

Be honest ... This show is so awesome. Like a Dark Knight series. In the same quality. Deathstroke will be fantastic im sure and Barrowman.. so "LET THE SPECULATION BEGINS!"

Guggenheim's description of Barrowman's character sounds like it could be Max Lord. Arrow is throwing a lot of DC characters into the mix.

I just want them to introduce Black Canary already!
Midseason finale would be great :)

If those chics ran around naked the whole time then it wouldn't be a waste of time watching it. How's that for grounded in reality?

Marc Guggenheim compares his feces show with Nolan's films?
I compare it to feces.

The show is looking like its a reverse-Lost with flashbacks that take place on the island. As for John Barrowman as it was stated above: Count Vertigo or Maxwell Lord.
