As the Arrow TV show has now officially ended, I wanna post one more video from it!
In this video you will see the cast of the future spinoff show. It is not greenlighted yet, but this scene was from the second last episode of Arrow, which is supposed to be a backdoor pilot of this future show which would include at least 3 masked women in the main cast!!!
But first, I wanna write down some thoughts on Arrow. This show founded the Arrowverse. I watched it from the start and was quickly hooked. I liked the dark atmosphere, the characters and the action. Season 1 was realllllly good and season 2 was even better for me since it introduced the Canary, the masked Huntress and also Ravager. Season 3 was good also.
With Season 4 the show started a downward trend for me. Too many sidekicks, less interesting villains and too much focus on Olicity (“Felicity + Oliver” for those who don’t know the term).
But I was and am still a big fan. I watched every episode, but the episodes after season 4 or 5 only once.
But one great show paved the way for other interesting and great shows: The Flash, Supergirl, Legends of Tomorrow, Black Lightning …..and …… finally BATWOMAN!
I will always be thankful for Arrow and what it started….the ARROWVERSE! Without Arrow I couldn’t write about the show that fullfilled an old dream of mine. I always wanted a(nother) TV show with a (properly) masked woman in the lead role! And it took nearly 20 years after “Black Scorpion” and “Queen of swords” were aired with only 1 season each.
Batwoman doesn’t only have the best mask/cowl a women has ever worn in a TV show or movie….it is the first show that actually made it to a 2nd season (and hopefully many more)!
Back to Arrow! In this scene we have the new green Arrow Mia Smoak and the 2 Canaries (Laurel Lance and Dinah Drake) in action!

And here is the video:
Yeah, I would really like to see more of these 3 in the future! Ok, as you (should) know by now, I am not the biggest fan of eye masks. But having 3 masked women as the lead actresses of a TV show….is a great thing for starters! Of course that show needs proper storylines, good action and interesting villains.
I really hope this show will start in the new CW season in the fall! Especially if there is some real secret identity struggle involved 😉
And here is the IMDB link to the episode:
What do you think of this scene?
Would you watch the TV show if it starts in the fall?
