    Exactly. Don't get me wrong, I am excited as hell for Ra's but this is the only reason why a part of me wanted Ra's saved for the final season, because it could mean the show peaking early. In terms of DC villains, Ra's is it, unless you wanna bring in Lex, Joker or Darkseid which I doubt they can.

    Your probably right, it's unlikely they'd portray him like TDKT version. If not for anything else than it being redundant.

    Both Vandal and H.I.V.E rank above Ra's in the super villain hierarchy,they fight teams of heroes.

    These posts made me pee my pants with joy. Brandon Routh shoots stars of happiness out of his hands everywhere.

    Yup. I don't know how they can totally ignore its existence with all those Batman characters in town.(and other reference elsewhere :halo: ) They can do whatever they want of course, but it is too much. One day or another i think they will at least adress him.

    They will definitely reference Bruce, but I'm sure it will be one of those subtle references that you'll have to really listen out for.

    Ra's: Believe me, Mr. Queen, I've dealt with men far more formidable than you.

    or

    Ra's: My daughter (Talia) she has a history with men like you, Mr. Queen. Self absorbed philanthropists who feel they have something to prove.

    I'm not surprised he's appearing, but I am surprised he's the villain next season. Given the Amanda Waller flashback, I was expecting H.I.V.E. to be the big bad next season (ARGUS and HIVE seem to go together better than with the League of Assassins), with Ra's being possibly the season after.

    Besides Ra's, here's another character to appear that we've been anticipating!

    Stephen linked a live Q&A on FB from SDCC a little while ago. Quite funny to watch.

    They still have Hive they can go to and Vendal Savage they always don't need to save the Best Villains for the last part of the Series.

    Ray Palmer enters the room
    Ray: "I like your company"
    Ollie: "Where'd you come from?"
    Ray: "I'm always around."

    I would add to that that you don't need the best villain to have the best story overall (and even an underwhelming villain in the comics can be done with fresh eyes to become much better).

    Was really hoping they'd save him for Gotham. This could get messy if that show lasts beyond it's first season.

    Arrow has just under 3.5 million viewers weekly. Probably double if you count other ways of watching and the fans overseas.

    Versions of what? All the characters popping up on Arrow, The Flash, and whatever other TV show they decide to put on the CW won't be in the movies. You are really delusionally over thinking this thing.

    I also laugh at the notion of the comparing these shows to Smallville. Sorry but the only way they could be compared to Smallville is if the shows were strictly about Oliver's 5 years gone before he became Green Arrow and Barry's years before he became The Flash. Also Green Arrow and Flash will give the viewers a lot more than the DCCU will in terms of story.

    Exactly, in fact, imo, this show is the ANTI-SMALLVILLE. Whereas Smallville was all about build up, Arrow wastes no time and gets to the good stuff right away and just builds on top of it. From episode 1 we saw Oliver in costume, shooting arrows and taking down bad guys. I think this is the reason so many people dig this show, it doesnt c*** tease you, it gives you what you want and keeps adding more and more of it.

    So was Ra's in the trailer? If he was, I didn't see him.

    Just leave now quantum. It doesn't need to connect to the DCCU to be enjoyable, that's dumb.

    This universe is ****ing awesome, it introduces us to DC characters that we likely won't see in the movies. So awesome. I couldn't be happier with the ARROW FLASH universe, it's doing everything right

    Not sure how you missed him, it's at the end and there are various sound clips of characters talking about him. Granted his face isn't shown but it's clearly him.

    Well, there seems to be 2 different ones. At least on youtube. One of them doesn't have the bit with Ra's at the end.
