ARROW Season 7's "Supermax" Arc Compared To Putting Batman In Prison Alongside The Joker

ARROW Season 7's "Supermax" Arc Compared To Putting Batman In Prison Alongside The Joker

When Arrow returns to The CW this fall, Oliver Queen will be behind bars and in a new interview, Stephen Amell and director James Bamford drop some big hints about what's to come for the imprisoned hero.

It sounds like Oliver Queen will cross paths with quite a few familiar faces when he winds up in the Slabside Supermax Prison in Arrow season seven. As you may recall, Warner Bros. was once developing a Supermax movie starring Green Arrow which would have seen him come face to face with the likes of The Joker and Lex Luthor but that premise is not being used for the small screen version of the hero.

"Oliver is in prison with a bunch of people that he put in prison," Stephen Amell reveals. "We were fortunate enough to get some people back on the show that you haven’t seen in quite a while." 
 
"We’re investigating completely different dynamics within the mythology of the show and that is within Supermax," adds director James Bamford. "There’s a whole world, as you know, within a prison community and we’ll see how long he lasts inside there and what and who he encounters while he’s in there. It’s left open to multiple possibilities, as far as characters that could arise."
 
"What I’ve said to the other folks is, ‘What if Batman got put in prison and, for instance, the Joker was right next door?’ The possibilities are endless,” he continued. “I can’t say exactly who or what’s in there, but it’s a pretty dark, horrible, evil place. We want the audience to not only feel what it’s like to be confined in such a destitute place. I want [you] to feel what he feels, so you’ll get the grit."
