10 ‘Arrow’ Facts to Store in Your Quiver
The CW’s Arrow is still going strong in Season 3, but did you know that the emerald archer has never once chosen his own superhero name? Or that the famed Starling City is actually a composite of Germany and Philadelphia? These are just some of the Arrow points targeting you in the fourth episode of ‘You Think You Know TV?,’ which will not fail this city!
Much as The Flash has Arrow to thank for its success, our look behind the scenes of The CW superhero drama also reveals that Arrow itself was born from a desire to recast and reboot the comic character’s Smallville iteration. Not only that, but Arrow shares even deeper connections with the DC universe, using Lex Luthor’s Smallville home as the Queen mansion, and even dropping in Harley Quinn for a stealth “Suicide Squad” cameo.
