To an extent you are if you don't show Ra's, but for me personally, he was played by Neeson and that series is still fresh in people's minds, so a TV actor is a disappointment.

That said, the great thing about the Nolan film is that we know ra's was not against using a decoy, so if they do bring him in, they may play with the notion of never really knowing his true identity.

Something I thought about today. Flash is the first announced superhuman on Arrow but is he the actual first superhuman? Another forum I scan mentioned that the Canary acts like the law of gravity is optional and she had those pipes fall on her and was gone in about a minute. In contrast I cannot remember Oliver hopping around like she did to the fire escape and I do remember him gettng koed by a much smaller pipe back in Unfinished Business I believe. If you didn't know the flash was the announced 1st superhuman wouldn't she seem like one with enhanced agility and durability?

I would think that it's possible that there are other superpowered beings. They just haven't been discovered or gone public yet.

Just started watching this on Netflix over the weekend. I'm about halfway through season one, trying to get caught up, and I gotta say this is a pretty good show. I'm going to hate having to make the shift to waiting a week for a new episode, but its been enjoyable so far.

I really don't know if they will use deathstroke this season because I see him ultimately being the villain of the series. At the same time, I'm sure all the fans want to see him.

The great thing about the green arrow character being revitalized in the comics is that they are giving him a bunch of new takes on old villains and bringing in some new villains that could definitely be used for the tv show.
I think after they mentioned him by name he will be showing up, possibly not until the season finale to set him up as season 3's central villain, but I can't see him not appearing at all.

Deathstroke is difficult to predict as Slade is such a big part of the island flashbacks, if he arrives in the present day then they'll have to have a big new direction for the island.

I've just ordered the first trade of the Lemire run that has gotten so much praise. I'm not sure which villains have been re-imagined or what other new ones have been added in the GA New 52, but Komodo seems like he'd be a good fit for the show.

He's reimagined Count Vertigo so far. He introduced Clock King (as well as the comics version of Diggle) last issue.

Merlyn has been in Batman Inc. Damian showed him up in archery. Tommy Merlyn (different character) appeared in Judd Winnick's 0 issue but hasn't been mentioned since.

Komodo is a great villain. The only real thing with him is that they'd have to be careful with his portrayal. He could easily come across as a Malcolm Merlyn rehash if they do him wrong. Do him right, and it could be great.

Shado's backstory with Oliver's dad is new, as is Oliver having a badass half-sister. Richard Dragon's portrayal is also different, I think.

They really have just started with multiple villains, but clock king and Richard dragon have been redone, although we don't know much about them yet. From the solicits, they also have various clans, the arrow clan, spear clan, fist clan, shield and maybe some more, can't remember. Each you figure will have new villains.

The thing with Merlyn in the comics is that they used the character right when arrow premiered and before lemire took over. They probably still thought tommy would become the dark archer.

Personally I found the take on Arrow to be much more compelling than anything the comics have done with the character IMO.

I wonder if Canary tells him that she could see it was him right away and recommends that he gets a mask similar to hers instead.

I'm tryig to figure how who the masked man is in the trailer; he has this orange skull mask. I don't think it's Phantasm or the Grim Reaper, so I'm curious who this is.
