Is Hal Jordan Appearing In 'ARROW' Season 2?
A new interview with Roy Harper actor Colton Haynes gives us our biggest clue yet to which DC Comics icon(s) will have a cameo in the upcoming second season of The CW's "Arrow." It's reportedly a character from a prior DC Comics film adaptation.
"Arrow's" Roy Harper (Colton Haynes) discusses the upcoming second season of The CW's smash-hit drama. While touching on a number of topics, the conversation gets interesting when Haynes starts discussing which well-known DC Comics characters will be popping up this season. Previously, series star Stephen Amell stated that a DC Comics character more familiar than Green Arrow would be appearing in Season 2. Now we have another clue from Colton, "There's going to be some new characters, I'm sure you guys have read, that are going to be joining, some very very well known characters that have been in prior movies so I think it's going to be exciting to see," added the potential Green Arrow sidekick. That tidbit narrows down the possibilities quite a bit. The most recent DC Comics adaptations have been for Batman, Superman and Green Lantern (Jonah Hex and Catwoman as well but come on...). Haynes continued, "I think it's going to be exciting to see who they cast as those people or if they can get some of the people from the actual movies that have played them."
Unless The CW is really going to surprise us and connect the show with "Man of Steel," I believe we're probably looking at some Hal Jordan/ Carol Ferris guest spots this season. There's even a bit of foreshadowing for such a cameo based on some easter eggs from the first season. Keep in mind, this is far from confirmation but if I had to bet the house on someone, it would definitely be Green Lantern at this point, albeit maybe in just his civilian guise as Hal Jordan.

"After a violent shipwreck, billionaire playboy Oliver Queen was missing and presumed dead for five years before being discovered alive on a remote island in the Pacific. When he returns home to Starling City, his devoted mother Moira, much-beloved sister Thea, and best friend Tommy welcome him home, but they sense Oliver has been changed by his ordeal on the island. While Oliver hides the truth about the man he’s become, he desperately wants to make amends for the actions he took as the boy he was. Most particularly, he seeks reconciliation with his former girlfriend, Laurel Lance. As Oliver reconnects with those closest to him, he secretly creates the persona of Arrow – a vigilante – to right the wrongs of his family, fight the ills of society, and restore Starling City to its former glory. By day, Oliver plays the role of a wealthy, carefree and careless philanderer he used to be – flanked by his devoted chauffeur/bodyguard, John Diggle – while carefully concealing the secret identity he turns to under cover of darkness. However, Laurel’s father, Detective Quentin Lance, is determined to arrest the vigilante operating in his city. Meanwhile, Oliver’s own mother, Moira, knows much more about the deadly shipwreck than she has let on – and is more ruthless than he could ever imagine."
