ARROW Spoilers & Easter Eggs
Earlier today we got our first look at Deadshot. Here's a handy rundown on a few spoiler/easter eggs to keep an eye out for when Arrow debuts next week.
Courtesy of THR, here are a few easter eggs and spoilers to keep an eye out for while watching Arrow.
- Dinah Lance works for a legal aid group called CNRI ('Canary')
- The Deathstroke mask implies that Oliver was not alone on that island for five years. Someone was there teaching him, directly or indirectly, how to become a survivor and skilled fighter.
-Tommy Merlyn has an evil streak that includes drugging girls at nightclubs.
-Oliver's sister 'Thea' will be a drug addict which coincides with a similar characteristic of the comic book version of Speedy.
-Several of the names on the list Oliver's father gives to him have deep roots in the Green Arrow mythos:
-Albert Davis | a multimillionaire who married for love, and had children only to lose them when they are kidnapped and killed. Davis snaps and turns to the occult in an effort to 'protect' Star City. He notably enlists The Riddler in his misguided intentions.
-Danny "Brick" Brickwell | first appeared in Green Arrow vol.3, #40. He was created by Judd Winick and Phil Hester. A metahuman with a reddish, stony skin that grants him invulnerability and super-strength. His success as an underworld kingpin is due to his brilliant criminal mind rather than his superhuman powers.
-Hannibal Bates | better known in the pages of DC Comics as Everyman, Bates gained the ability to shapeshift through a scientific metahuan initiative spearheaded by Lex Luthor.
-David Drayson | goes by the alias Slingshot in DC Comics. He's described as a psychotic cop-killer and one of Green Arrow's most dangerous opponents.
-Lester Buchinsky | First appeared in Detective Comics #644, (May 1992), and was created by Chuck Dixon, Tom Lyle and Scott Hanna. Better known as Electrocutioner, he's a criminal that relies on a costume that releases a lethal electronic shock and is frequently in the employ of Blüdhaven crime boss Blockbuster.
- In the pilot, Arrow relies primarily on traditional arrows but will also use a few 'trick arrows.'
