Arrow fans who preorder season 3 on iTunes will gain access to a new, five-minute featurette that teases big questions from the upcoming season.
The featurette is conducted by executive producer Andrew Kreisberg who discusses the season’s big bad, Ra’s al Ghul, Brandon Routh as The Atom, and Oliver (Stephen Amell) and Felicity’s (Emily Bett Rickards) relationship.
The featurette was available on YouTube for a short while but has since been taken down. ComicBook.com managed to get a transcript of some of what Kreisberg said about “Olicity”:
They clearly have a very strong bond and there’s clearly love there. This season is really both of them wrestling with, is there any world in which this could ever work? And there are other options for Felicity, namely in the form of Ray Palmer, a.k.a. The Atom, played by Brandon Routh. You look at the chemistry he and Emily have, and it’s just off the charts. He’s a strong rival, he’s a good option for Felicity.
Arrow season 3 premieres on October 8 at 8PM EST on The CW.
