'Arrow' Creator Reveals Finale Almost Went a Different Way

'Arrow' Creator Reveals Finale Almost Went a Different Way

The Arrow series finale was originally supposed to be much different.

Creator Marc Guggenheim recently opened up about how Oliver’s death was always planned, but for the actual finale.

“I always saw the show ending with Oliver’s death, but Oliver’s death in the actual finale,” he told Fake Nerd Podcast. “Then I kind of had a little bit of a fantasy that Oliver would die and you’d end with some sort of news broadcast talking about his legacy and that would sort of become the voice over.”

“And then you would go to this rooftop in a whole other city, and on the cut a thug or some bad guy would crash into the frame, having been punched off-screen,” Marc added. “And these pair of black boots would come down right in front of him and there’d be a flutter of a scalloped cape and the voice over would say something along the lines of, ‘Oliver Queen inspired a whole new generation of vigilantes.’ The implication being, of course, that he inspired Batman. So that, of course, didn’t happen for a variety of different reasons – not the least of which is Batwoman came along – but that was my original conception.”

The Arrow finale almost could have spawned a Batman series, but they decide to hand the reigns over to Oliver’s daughter Mia for the Green Arrow & The Canaries backdoor pilot. Still no word yet if that show will be picked up to series.

'Arrow' Producer Shares Script From Olicity's Final Scene

'Arrow' Producer Shares Script From Olicity's Final Scene

Arrow may have aired its final episode last month, but there are still some special behind-the-scenes moments from the show.

Consulting producer Marc Guggenheim just posted the script from the show’s final moments which featured a long-awaited reunion between Felicity Smoak (Emily Bett Rickards) and Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell).

“Here you go,” Marc simply captioned the two script pages.

Felicity last appeared on Arrow during season seven, leaving many fans wondering if she would return for the series finale.

Check out the script to see how Felicity and Oliver reunion played out…

'Arrow' Series Finale Seemingly Confirms This Long-Running Fan Theory!

'Arrow' Series Finale Seemingly Confirms This Long-Running Fan Theory!

Spoilers ahead! Don’t read if you haven’t watched the series finale of Arrow.

Fans totally went crazy over the final moments of the Arrow series finale!

The finale saw the end of Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) sacrificing himself in order to reboot the universe and create the combined Earth Prime universe that all the Arrowverse heroes now live in.

At the end of the episode, the Green Arrow’s bodyguard John Diggle (David Ramsey) teases new adventures to come, and we see a meteor streak across the sky. Diggle then goes to the crash site and finds a box with an emerald ring inside – aka the power ring worn by The Green Lantern.

For years, it has been a long-running theory by Arrow fans that Diggle would turn out to be Green Lantern John Stewart. The show’s been dropping Easter eggs on that theory for years with us learning that Diggle’s grandfather’s last name was “Stewart” and once in an alternate universe version of the Flash once asked Diggle “where’s your ring?” when he met him.

“That was something that we’ve been working our way towards for a good long time now,” showrunner Marc Guggenheim shared with Deadline. “I think for maybe about a year, year-and-a-half we’ve known that this was a moment we’re going to be able to do, and it made sense to do it in the finale because my attitude is that even though the show ends, as long as the characters are alive the characters continue on. One of the things we wanted to do with the finale was give you a sense as to what their post-show trajectories would be. And certainly, Diggle’s is probably the most intriguing.”

Here’s to hoping we get more from The Green Lantern in the future!
