A whole new set of heroes will be introduced in the TV series this year. Wild Dog (Rick Gonzalez), Vigilante (Josh Segarra) and Artemis (Madison McLaughlin), who previously appeared as the Black Canary imposter, will be joining Oliver (Stephen Amell) in fighting crime in Star City.

Amell was recently asked at the Heroes & Villains Fan Fest if the “Flashpoint” storyline from “The Flash” would affect his TV series. “Sure,” the actor replied. When he was further asked if it would affect the show “majorly,” Amell replied by saying “you bet.”

Meanwhile, Kevin Smith has expressed interest in directing an episode of “Arrow” Season 5, Den of Geek reports. Smith will be directing the episode titled “The Runaway Dinosaur” in “The Flash” TV series.

Smith had created a popular comic book villain named Onomatopoeia way back in 2002. The director now wants to introduce the villain in the TV series. He conceded that the live action version of the villain making sounds similar to the comic books will make him look like the character from “Police Academy.” So, he has found another way to do it.

“He’ll just have little cards,” Smith explained. There would by words typed behind the cards, like “blam,” and after his victim reads the words the villain would shoot him. Smith believes that this way it would make the character “more chilly” in the TV series.

“Arrow” Season 5 premiere episode airs on Oct. 5. More details from the production set are expected in the coming weeks.
