Furious ARROW Fans Have Changed The Show's Subreddit To Support THE PUNISHER Instead - Here's Why

Bad news for Arrow as dissatisfied fans of The CW series have decided to switch the show's subreddit page to support The Punisher instead. Hit the jump to find out why such a big change has been made.

The final part of the "Crisis on Earth-X" featured an unexpected development as Oliver Queen and Felicity Smoak decided to get married shortly after Barry Allen and Iris West. Olicity has always been controversial among Arrow fans and some of them are so upset that they've given the show's subreddit a major overhaul. For the time being at least, it will now revolve around Marvel's The Punisher instead! 

"If anyone from the CW network or ARROW writers is reading this, the reason 'ARROW' subreddit has changed to 'PUNISHER', is because well...Arrow is no longer what it used to be," one of the site's users says in a post explaining the change. "Season 5 was a back to form, but Season 6 is a utter disappointment. The forced Olicity wedding proved the show is for shippers. It's a shame the writers haven't learned their lessons from Season 3 and 4, and couldn't let go of the Olicity obsession."
 
This isn't the first time this has happened to Arrow's subreddit as it previously switched its focus to Daredevil after the underwhelming season four finale. While this change to The Punisher is unlikely to be permanent, it's not good news for Arrow ahead of the midseason finale next week and these fans make some valid points. This marriage feels like a huge mistake and season six has been a let down.

What do you think? Have you given up on Arrow after this major status quo shift for Oliver Queen?
