  1. Arrow Cast Reunites For Photo As Season 7 Begins Production (Date: 06 July 2018)
    1. The Arrow Writers Room tweeted out a photo of Stephen Amell (Oliver Queen), Emily Bett Rickards (Felicity Smoak), David Ramsey (John Diggle) and Echo Kellum (Curtis Holt) celebrating the first table read of the season. Since this is a celebration, there was, of course, also cake involved. This is a major season in the Arrowverse, as it is the first season for new showrunner Beth Schwartz, the show is moving to Mondays at 8pm and Stephen Amell has said that he would like this season to be written as if it there is no guarantee that there will be a Season 8. So it is nice that they can start it all off with some cake.
  2. EXCLUSIVE: ‘ARROW’ Season 7 Characters Breakdown Possibly Including Batwoman (Date: 11 July 2018)
  3. “Dover” is a male in his 30-40s who is teased as a physically intimidating player. Even though he may not be the brightest person in the room, anyone who is in his presence will feel incredibly small. Whether or not “Dover” is a cover name for a DC character or not, he will be recurring this season.
  4. Next is “Leah”, a 30-something woman who is a world-class mercenary who was born to be a leader. Don’t mess with this one because once you see what “Leah” has in her toolbox of skills, you will see why those are known across the world.
  5. Last is “Angeline” who may be something we should pay great attention to. Described as a diverse woman in her 30s, she is a fierce fighter despite of her smaller stature. Not only is she experienced in stealth, “Angeline” is able to wipe out buildings filled with foes all by herself before she is gone like a ghost. It will be made very clear that “Angeline” thinks incredibly highly of her work.
