Some fans feel that “Arrow” season 5 was the best season yet, and it was full of interesting twists and turns. One of the biggest story arcs that fans seemed to latch onto in season 5 was the story of Vigilante. Originally it was believed that Josh Segarra was playing Vigilante, but after he was revealed to be Prometheus/Adrian Chase, it left everyone to wonder who’s under the Vigilante mask.
It’s been teased that Vigilante will have a very personal connection to one of the characters on the show, but appears that we may be able to eliminate the possibility of Vigilante being someone we already know.
During a recent interview with TV Guide, executive producer Wendy Mericle noted that they’re very excited about the casting for the role, so unless her comment was made to throw fans off, it seems that we could be seeing a fresh face under the mask.
“I can definitely tell you it’s not right away, but it will be happening. We’re so excited about it. We’re excited about the casting, we’re excited about the stories. It was one of those things where we didn’t know how far we were going to be able to take it, and it’s evolved into kind of a bigger story arc than we thought, which is always exciting because you get to take the character in new directions, and it’s going to have an impact on our characters. That’s when you know the story is really working and things are really in sync. I think it’s going to be really surprising. I don’t think the audience is going to see it coming. At least I hope they don’t. It’s just going to be fun.”
Who do you think Vigilante is? Sound off in the comments below.
“Arrow” will return on Thursday, October 12.
After a violent shipwreck, billionaire playboy Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) was missing and presumed dead for five years before being discovered alive on a remote island in the North China Sea. He returned home to Star City, bent on righting the wrongs done by his family and fighting injustice.
As the Green Arrow, he protects his city with the help of former soldier John Diggle (David Ramsey), computer-science expert Felicity Smoak (Emily Bett Rickards), his vigilante-trained sister Thea Queen (Willa Holland), Deputy Mayor Quentin Lance (Paul Blackthorne), brilliant inventor Curtis Holt (Echo Kellum), and his new recruits, street-savvy Rene Ramirez (Rick Gonzalez) and meta-human Dinah Drake (Juliana Harkavy).
Oliver has finally solidified and strengthened his crime-fighting team only to have it threatened when unexpected enemies from his past return to Star City, forcing Oliver to rethink his relationship with each member of his “family”.
