On Friday, we had our first look at Season 3 of Arrow. Not to be outdone with all the movie hoopla going on, at the Warners TV and DC Entertainment Panel we got another Arrow video which at first is basically the same as the previous one.
EXCEPT, at the 2:30 mark after the title card the video keeps going and teases Ra's Al Ghul!!!!! Yes, the Demon's Head WILL BE the Season 3 Big Bad.
"It really happened very organically in the sense that we had this notion that in episode 16 we were going to reveal that Malcolm Merlyn was trained by the League of Assassins and that's because that's because of the comic book. We were like, you know what we're going to do? We're going to get away with a little reference about a guy in Nanda Parbat who changed his life," Marc Guggenheim executive producer said at the panel.
Alas, Ra's still hasn't been cast yet (and the moment the character is we're so going to report it), but Guggenheim also confirmed that Ra's first scene will be with his daughter Nyssa Al Ghul, and his presence might lead to an eventual Merlyn/Ollie team-up.
Here's the video:
The new season of Arrow hits the CW on October 8th.
