Fans saw a lot of Vigilante in the first half of “Arrow” season 5, but the character’s true identity was not revealed. When Josh Segarra joined the cast of “Arrow” he believed he was signing on to play Vigilante, but that turned out to be a big swerve when he showed up to the set and he was told that he was really cast as the big bad of season 5, Prometheus.
Everyone has a theory in regards to who Vigilante might be, but it has been confirmed that it’s a character we’ve met before. Producer Wendy Mericle recently spoke to TV Line, and she said that Vigilante will be unmasked in season 6, and his mission is very personal.
“Who he is and what he’s up to is very personal,” Mericle says, adding: “He’s got a very close connection to one of our series regulars that I really hope will blow the fans’ minds.”
We may not know who Vigilante is, but Stephen Amell does. Each member of Team Arrow will be connected to a villain somehow in the new season, but we’ll just have to wait and see who Vigilante is connected to.
Who do you think is under the mask? 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”.
