At this year’s Heroes and Villains Fan Fest London, Arrow star Stephen Amell shared a plotline that he influenced for the series.
The actor is responsible for what would ultimately lead to the introduction of Oliver’s son, William into the Arrowverse. Of course, fans will remember that in the second season of the show, there was a flashback involving the revelation that Queen had gotten Samantha Clayton pregnant.
Explaining his contribution to Arrow and the developments to his character’s story, Amell had this to say:
“I have a reasonable influence on the show. I get into the micro-elements of the show, but the macro-elements have always been the producers. The only big idea that I’ve ever had was when we did the first crossover with The Flash. I suggested that Oliver’s baby momma and his kid showed up at CC Jitters.”
Arrow stars Stephen Amell as Oliver Queen/Green Arrow, Emily Bett Rickards as Felicity Smoak, David Ramsey as John Diggle, Willa Holland as Thea Queen/Speedy, Paul Blackthorne as Quentin Lance, Juliana Harkavy as Dinah Drake/Black Canary, Rick Gonzalez as Rene Ramirez/Wild Dog, Echo Kellum as Curtis Holt/Wild Dog and Katie Cassidy as Laurel Lance/Black Siren.
The new season of Arrow begins with the episode entitled, “Inmate 4587” and will debut on Monday, October 15 at 8 PM ET/5 PM PT on The CW.

Batman has been one of the most used comic book characters in almost every medium and with good reason. He’s the most popular character in DC Comics and probably the best depending on who you ask. But would placing Batman in the same universe as Arrow, The Flash and Supergirl work? Should The CW do it? These are the reasons why I think it would and should work.
