The production of Arrow’s season 3 finale has begun! Titled My Name Is Oliver Queen and directed by John Behring, shooting runs from 8th-17th April.
We do know a formidable foe will be introduced in the finale. Michael Ausiello from TVLine wrote:
The show’s Season 3 finale will introduce a major, formidable, fierce new foe for Oliver, and his reign of terror will continue well into Season 4. The mysterious character is being referred to internally as “Damian Dark,” which got Matt Mitovich and I (but mostly MM) pulling up and skimming the Wiki page of one Damian Wayne. Get it? Damian Wayne. Son of the Dark Knight. They’d probably have to tweak the Bruce Wayne connection, but it’s a plausible theory, no? UPDATE: Readers better-schooled than Matt Mitovich and I (but mostly MM) notes that Damien Darhk is a H.I.V.E. operative per DC lore, and thus is more likely to be introduced.
Photos have begun to find their way online. James shared a couple of photos from the Pre-Vis rehearsal and I was most excited to see swords, LOTS of swords.. The little cutie in the middle is none other than James’ youngest daughter Jade. She takes it all in her stride.
Executive Producer Marc Guggenheim shared a photo of the final table read and a mystery set construction
