The first full trailer for Arrow’s 2017 return answered a big question about the winter cliffhanger, but Prometheus’ identity will continue to haunt us as Season 5 wears on. That’s no more evident than in the first photos and synopsis for January premiere “Who Are You,” as Felicity may steer Oliver toward revenge against the masked villain.

Among the myriad questions Arrow Season 5 still has to answer in 2017, the mystery of Prometheus’ identity may take us to a previously-inaccessible corner of the Batman universe. We know we’ll finally meet Ra’s al Ghul’s daughter Talia, but what might she have to do with the newest big bad to Star City? Allow producers to explain:
The CW has enough superheroes for one lifetime, between Supergirl, The Flash, Arrow and Legends of Tomorrow, to say nothing of DC outliers like FOX’s Gotham. Well, get ready for another superhero (or villain?) to join the ranks in 2017, as those in the know say there’s another DC TV series on the way
Considering Game of Thrones began its 2016 run with one of the series’ biggest reveals to date, and closed out the final 10-episode season with a hearty tease for summer 2017, is it any wonder the series continues to dominate the year’s most pirated TV? See what else made the list, including your next HBO obsession, and surprising entry from the comic world.
The Arrow midwinter finale may not have answered the big question about Prometheus, but producers still threw one major curveball with those closing moments. Now, the first trailer for Season 5's January return gives a spoiler-y answer to Laurel’s return, as well as some fallout from the finale’s big death.

Granted, said timeline-tweak could have connected Arrow to the “Star City 2046” of Legends’ first season, producers now admit to some uncertainty with their take on John Diggle Jr. and Connor Hawke.
The first installments of Cartoon Network’s new Justice League Action will bow as early as this Friday, and the latest look at our “Shazam Slam” beginnings trot out even more DC favorites. Arrow meets Constantine yet again in a new clip, along with Swamp Thing, Wonder Woman and more.
Even as each series seemed to quietly sweep things under the rug thereafter, The CW’s four-way “Invasion!” crossover gave ample opportunity for some unexpected bonds between characters. At least some scenes understandably ended up cut for time, as with a new deleted scene of H.R. and Thea’s tense first meeting.
It’s been several months since The CW first announced an additional animated Arrow-verse series beyond Vixen, aiming to adapt Freedom Fighters: The Ray. Said universe has been understandably busy in recent weeks, but producers tease that The Ray is assembling an “ambitious” writing staff that ties into some larger news about Vixen.
‘Arrow’ Season 5 closes 2016 facing “What We Leave Behind” with a shocking reappearance in the bunker, but do our theories on Prometheus’ identity still hold up? Plus, who’s the real Russian villain we’ve yet to meet? Find out in our full review!
