Thanks for the new thread. Just occurred to me that you might have been working on this while I was asking about it. So I'm sorry if I came across as pushy. That was not my intention. I certainly don't know how to make a new thread and nobody was actually responding to my posts about it so I wasn't sure anyone was making a new thread. I guess I just needed to be more patient. Sorry again and thank you for making the new thread.

Oh ok. Good. I was afraid I had just annoyed you into rushing to make it. Glad that's not the case because I wasn't trying to be pushy.

No wants him to have the pointy goatee but people want him to resemble the character they know which is why Amell has some scruff sometime.

ETA: And yeah count me okay with keeping the scruff for Oliver. I mean Stephen's a good looking guy but I don't know if he is pretty enough to make up for a goatee
Because some writers think that if you introduce their destined love interest that they are forced to have them hook up.

The scruff is fine. SA looks good with scruff. But he would look ridiculous with a pointy goatee. No one would take him seriously. This Oliver isn't specifically taken form any one iteration of the comics though. And this show and even the Flash are not about maintaining comic purity. So I don't entirely get why that goatee is so important to some people when the show is already so different from the comics. I mean people are allowed to feel how they want about the goatee or whatever, but I just don't get the point of wanting that for this version of Oliver/GA. That's just not who he is.


http://comicbook.com/2015/04/06/arro...sh-on-the-spi/

^Also about this, SA isn't talking about Felicity being the one who hovers between the 3 shows is he? I know she's connected to each, but the way he said this statement makes it sound like this person's only purpose will be to flit back and forth between the 3 shows. I don't care if Felicity crosses over from time to time but her main focus should be on Arrow. She a main character on Arrow. Her job is to be the heart of TA. Not to just connect the shows. They can't be reducing her to the most important thing about her is that she's knows someone on each show. Could he be talking about Sara or Lyla maybe? I don't like how he framed this statement. I don't want Felicity to suddenly be spread evenly amongst the shows or something. She belongs on Arrow.

I pray that Felicity isn't the one constantly hopping up in all the shows. I like her for the most part but talk about overkill, but let others shine. Let Roy have some fun.

The Flash has made some changes but it's still pretty faithful to the comics. I'd say it feels like a true adaptation of the comics, which is a big part of its appeal, IMO. Arrow, on the other hand...well, not so much. The fact that Oliver Queen/Arrow shares so little in common with his comic self wouldn't be a problem (for me) if the version we're seeing was unique in his own way but he is basically a Bruce Wayne/Batman wannabe and that's just unfortunate.

Now, I will say that while I still find this Ra's twist far fetched, (to say the least) seeing the writers actually follow through with it is probably the boldest thing they've done in a while. And I must admit that SA has never sounded more compelling than he did delivering that final line in the most recent promo. I was actually impressed! I doubt he can keep it up but this is probably the most interesting thing to ever happen to his character.

He is probably talking about Felicity. I mean her connection to Ray makes her an obvious choice and she has basically been established as this universes version of Oracle. But its probably just going to be like her involvement with The Flash, she will crossover a couple of times to bring some connectivity between the shows. I don't think it necessarily means that she is going to be stretch between all three shows, Arrow will still be her permanent base show.

^Felicity is definitely connected to all the shows but the way SA talked about this person made it seem like they were going to be big presence on all the shows, that their job is to connect the shows, that they would hover between the 3 shows. That doesn't sound like mainly being in Arrow. But maybe I'm misunderstanding what he meant. And also I don't think Felicity being connected to the shows is a secret so I feel like he could've said her name if he was talking about her. Maybe he didn't name names because it's someone else and it would be a spoiler to give their name right now. I don't care if it's someone else. But Felicity is a core character on Arrow and it better stay that way. Almost all of her time should be spent on Arrow not flitting around helping everyone else on other shows all the time. It's great that she matters to so many people but she is Oliver's girl in more ways than one, her main place is by his side.

^Me too. Couldn't he have said her name if it was her though? It's no secret she has a connection to each show, so why not say her name? Unless it's not her he's talking about and naming the person would be an actual spoiler. I just can't imagine after how huge this season is turning out for Olicity that next season, she's going to be spread out amongst the shows. Her focus and time has got to be mostly on Arrow. Making her role to just be the go between for the shows doesn't make any sense with development they are doing with her and Olicity this season. Hovering between the shows doesn't sound like Felicity's role in this universe, she is firmly in the Arrow world. She's not hovering anywhere. This makes me think it will be someone else who isn't grounded to one show like Felicity is. Plus I can't imagine tptb don't realize pulling her away from Arrow a lot would p*** off a lot of fans. A few crossovers are fine but her place is on Arrow.
