Arrow Villain details and an explosive mid-season finale promised

The CW's Arrow is one show most people including me are looking forward to this fall. As this show's season 3 premiere date draws nearer and as Comic Con draws close, we have been hearing about different stories about this show and it's spin-off.

The latest news is about the show's new villain, Andrew Kreisberg, the show's executive producer only hinted about the villain's personality and not the identity of the star that will be playing the role.

"Slade had a very specific agenda-he was out for revenge and had set up this elaborate five-year plot. What's interesting about the villain in Season 3 is that he doesn't necessarily disagree with [Oliver]. He doesn't have any personal animus towards the Arrow, and he actually in some ways has a very similar worldview. [But] the Arrow is thinking too small. In some ways, as Oliver is struggling with whether or not he can be the Arrow and Oliver at the same time, the villain of Season 3 is saying, 'Being Oliver Queen is what's holding you back from fulfilling your true destiny.' So it's a very interesting dynamic, but it is tied in the same way that Oliver last year was wrestling with, 'Am I a hero or a killer?' The theme of identity is tied up very much in how the villain is presented to Oliver."

He also teased about what they had in store for their fans this season

"It's really going to be an adventure with the Arrow and The Flash on both episodes. Watching the two teams come together and fight alongside each other, it's one of the most fun parts. We just don't believe in waiting. We really believe in accelerated storytelling and especially for those first nine episodes of the season-for both shows-hopefully we've designed it so that none of these [make you say], 'Well, I missed that one, it's fine.'"

He also teased about an explosive mid-season finale

"(We have) spectacular and amazing midseason finales planned for both shows that are both game-changers ... and what better way to lead into it than by having this amazing team-up?"

He teased about the presence of a female super-human

"The series' incarnation of the metahuman is a fetching young redhead who was a bomb specialist with the Army before she was injured by an IED in Iraq. Since being exposed to the Central City explosion, she can turn any object into a bomb with just a touch of her hand - not a bad comrade for The Flash to have on his team, eh?"
