“Arrow” S5 First Promo & New Villain Details

The fifth season of The CW’s “Arrow” is on the way with a renewed focus. Gone is the magical elements of last year, instead the show is going back to basics with the darker and more grounded tone of the first and second seasons and a lot of callbacks to that inaugral year.

One of the keys to that will be the new villain, Prometheus, another ‘dark archer’ and an original creation whose identity will be revealed later in the season and who is motivated by revenge, producer Wendy Mericle saying: “he has a very personal grudge and axe to grind with Oliver and he’s going to come at him in a really interesting, sociopathic kind of way.”

The character will make his first appearance during the season premiere and the first promo for that season launcher is now online and can be seen below:
