“The Season 3 premiere, titled The Calm, is “a complete inverse” of the superhero hit’s sophomore opener, in which Oliver was despondent, his alter ego disgraced" EP Marc Guggenheim notes.
Rather, “Arrow’s starting to win the hearts of the city.” Cue the arrival of a different sort of adversary, in entrepreneur Ray Palmer (Superman Returns’ Brandon Routh). “He’s not like Sebastian Blood, looking at Oliver with disdain. Oliver quite frankly just doesn’t play this this guy’s level.” (As for talk that Ray, who is not yet The Atom, will catch Felicity’s eye, the EP affirms: “The chemistry between Brandon and Emily [Bett Rickards] is pretty undeniable.”) Episode 3 will focus on dad-to-be Diggle, Episode 5 delves into Felicity’s past (with NYPD Blue’s Charlotte Ross as her mom), viewers will get to sit in on the limo convo between Malcolm and daughter Thea, and Ted “Wildcat” Grant (played by J.R. Ramirez as a Latino boxing instructor) will play a role in Laurel’s evolution into Canary
BONUS SPOILER | Teasing the Hong Kong flashbacks, Guggenheim says, “We know from Episode 216 that Oliver and Amanda Waller really do not like each other. You’ll see in the premiere why that is.”
Did you know at the set of Capitan America 2.

Apparently the record was 10 minutes.
