ARROW’s “Prometheus” photos introduce title villain, Tobias Church, and Bratva story!
Arrow has some new enemies taking charge in first look photos for Season 5’s premiere episode, “Prometheus”!
The show has yet to announce who is playing baddie Prometheus, but the images show him looking badass in and seemingly itching to take down Green Arrow and his crew. The character apparently won’t be attached to a specific incarnation of a comics character (there were three by that name,) but we’re still getting hyped by the images alone.
We’re also The Walking Dead‘s Chad L. Coleman as Tobias Church (albeit from behind), Speedy on the job, Mayor Oliver Queen getting gritty, and lots of teases for the upcoming Bratva storyline that will be central to the new season!
Arrow returns to The CW on Wednesday, October 5, 2016.
After a violent shipwreck, billionaire playboy Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) was missing and presumed dead for five years before being discovered alive on a remote island in the North China Sea. Oliver returned home to Star City, bent on righting the wrongs of his family and fighting injustice. As the Green Arrow, he protects his city with the help of former soldier John Diggle (David Ramsey), computer science expert Felicity Smoak (Emily Bett Rickards), his vigilante-trained sister Thea Queen (Willa Holland), former police captain Quentin Lance (Paul Blackthorne) and brilliant inventor Curtis Holt (Echo Kellum). Newly appointed Mayor Oliver Queen finds himself challenged as he fights on two fronts for the future of Star City.
With Diggle back in the military and Thea adamant about hanging up her hood as Speedy, Team Green Arrow is down to just Oliver and Felicity – but they’re no longer the only vigilantes in town. Green Arrow’s public defeat of Damien Darhk at the end of Season Four has inspired a new crop of masked heroes to step up and defend the city, though their painful inexperience makes them obstacles, rather than allies, in the field. The arrival of a deadly new adversary will force Oliver to confront questions about his own legacy, both as mayor and as the Green Arrow.
