Reported by Outsiders - 09:18 PM 2013.07.20
Stephen Amell, Katie Cassidy, David Ramsey, Emily Bett Rickards, and Colton Haynes were the actors in the Arrow panel and they were joined by executive producers Greg Berlanti, Marc Guggenheim, and Andrew Kreisberg.
Oliver will take more interest in his family's company. His mother will take a bigger role and it'll be a story of her seeking redemption.
Season two kicks off five months after season one's finale.
Oliver sees the city needs a hero to inspire them, not a vigilante.
"Everything Oliver does at this point is considerate of Tommy."
"One of the things we're doing this season is we're telling the beginning of the Black Canary story." Pointed out the first Deathstroke wasn't Slade -- clearly addressing how another actress has been cast for BC.
Diggle is going to start appearing in the GREEN ARROW comic series.
Colton says Roy wants to become a hero but season two will feel like an island to Roy like it was to Oliver. "He'll have to be knocked down a few pegs before getting some help from people who know what they're doing."
"Will anyone else return?" John Barrowman walks onto the stage. Gives Stephen an older Green Arrow figure and Stephen apologizes for stabbing him in the finale.
Producers ask if we want Malcom to come back. Crowd cheers and the producers joke they have a few ideas how to return a character from the dead. John says he'd be more than happy to come back. John says he can definitely return through flashbacks, too.
"Are any DC characters coming this season?" Sebastian Blood (Brother Blood) and he'll be played by Kevin Alejandro. Also, Deadshot will be back as a member of the Suicide Squad and the team will include Bronze Tiger played by Michael Jai White!
The opening moments of season two will give us a bit hint about whether or not Slade will become Deathstroke and whether he'll be a villain or anti-hero.
