I remember approximately 7 years ago, watching the premiere episode of The CW’s Arrow and was immediately hooked from them on as them unknown star Stephen Amell took the mantle as one of DC’s most iconic super heroes. I’ve always liked heroes like him because like Batman, Hawkeye, and The Punisher, he doesn’t have any special powers. He just knows how to handle himself and he is an expert with the bow and arrow. Every week he took on threats both superhuman and human and put his life on the line to make the world a better and safer place. To me, the regular heroes of the comic book world are the real super heroes because they go up against these threats with only training, sheer determination and bravery to back them up.
Well all good things must come to an end and with that filming has come to a close on the series finale band the stars and crew took to social media to say a special thank you to us the fans and those they worked with. Check out some of the lists below!
It’s sad but I’m glad Amell is going out on his own terms and I can’t wait to see the final episodes to the series. I’m waiting so I can watch them all at my leisure and something does tell me that this won’t be the last time Amell dons the iconic suit.
I got to meet Amell this last August at the Boston Fan Expo which was a thrill for me and he was such a great guy and down to Earth. Who knows, maybe one day we will chat for the site.

Episodes are now airing weekly with the finale set for January 28th so check it out and long live The Green Arrow! You have failed this city!!!!
