DC Villains The Longbow Hunters Come to Star City, While
Some of Oliver's Old Foes Also Resurface
BURBANK, Calif. (July 21, 2018) - In the shocking season six finale of Arrow, Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) not only reveals himself to Star City as The Green Arrow, but he's also arrested and sent to prison. Cast and producers of The CW/Warner Bros. Television's hit DC series elaborated on what's in store for Oliver at Slabside Maximum Security Prison during Arrow's 2018 Comic-Con panel on Saturday, July 21.
Now that Oliver's behind bars, he will come face to face with many of his former enemies, including Ben Turner/Bronze Tiger (Michael Jai White), Derek Sampson (Cody Runnels) and Danny "Brick" Brickwell (Vinnie Jones). With all three held in Slabside, Oliver will be forced to confront these and other villains he locked up while wearing the hood.
In addition, Team Arrow will come up against The Longbow Hunters, a legendary group of assassins recruited by Ricardo Diaz (Kirk Acevedo) to enact his revenge on Oliver and the team after they took down his burgeoning criminal empire in season six. A trio of villains more lethal than any the team has faced, The Longbow Hunters include:
· Red Dart (Holly Elissa - Whistler), a ruthless and precise killer
· Kodiak (Michael Jonsson - Van Helsing), a beast of a man with brute force
· and Silencer (Miranda Edwards - The Magicians, Orphan Black), a master of stealth
