Arrow and The Flash exec producer Andrew Kreisberg has been talking to EW about the upcoming season of Arrow and what will become of Slade ‘Deathstroke’ wilson…
“Slade had a very specific agenda,” he said, “He was out for revenge and had set up this elaborate five-year plot. What’s interesting about the villain in season three is that he doesn’t necessarily disagree with [Oliver]. He doesn’t have any personal animus towards the Arrow, and he actually in some ways has a very similar worldview. [But] the Arrow is thinking too small.”
On the much talked about crossovers between Arrow and flash, he added: “It’s really going to be an adventure with the Arrow and Flash on both episodes. Watching the two teams come together and fight alongside each other, it’s one of the most fun parts. We just don’t believe in waiting. We really believe in accelerated storytelling and especially for those first nine episodes of the season–for both shows–hopefully we’ve designed it so that none of these [make you say], ‘Well, I missed that one, it’s fine.'”
“The Flash” pilot starts on October 7th, Arrow Season 3 kicks off on October 8th.
