As everyone is celebrating having two DC Universe shows – Arrow and The Flash – on The CW this Fall, comes cool news from TVGuide.com: Stephen Amell (Oliver Queen) will be appearing in the Flash pilot!

“In the Flash pilot, Barry comes to me,” Stephen Amell told TVGuide.com’s Natalie Abrams. “[It’s a] little snippet in the Flash pilot where he and I share a scene together, it’s in his pilot, but [filming] it felt like our show because he’s coming to Starling City.

Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) is not the only terse and succinct superhero on television, but he is the one with perhaps the biggest heart. He will literally do anything to protect his family and those he loves. We have seen him struggle time and time again to walk the line between vigilante and hero. He recently crossed back over to the dark-side in order to save his teammate Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) when The Count (Seth Gabel) had her in his clutches, and Oliver snapped again when he thought that Roy may be endangering Thea – and an arrow through the leg was Roy’s punishment for daring to venture more into Oliver’s forbidden vigilante world.

In a recent press interview at the WBTV Mondo International Press Tour, star Stephen Amell briefly talked about the Oliver/Roy relationship and Oliver’s struggle to stop the killing in his quest to help the people of Starling City.

ARROW on a fast-track right now and we’ve seen how Arrow decided that Roy (Colton Haynes) shouldn’t be on the team anymore. He’s gotten himself in a little bit of scrapes. So what is the dynamic going to be between them right now?

STEPHEN: That will not be resolved, but will be addressed immediately in this week’s episode. It did seem like a little bit of a rash decision by Oliver, but Roy flew too close to the sun, so to speak, ’cause he’s involved with Thea (Willa Holland), which is an absolute no-no. I’m excited to see — in Episode 9, we see more interaction between Oliver and Roy, but then it comes to a head by Episode 12. It was a really great opportunity for me to work with Colton, who I hadn’t spoken to that much. He’s great and I excited to see where that will go.

What has the transformation of Oliver been between Season 1 and 2?
STEPHEN: In Season 1, he was very much a loner and didn’t want any help. He wasn’t very particularly interested in any type of deep relationship and all that behavior cost him. So he’s trying to use that as an example of how to behave differently. He’s know more focused on doing good and not getting revenge and a lot more of the human elements are creeping into Oliver, which is nice for me to play.

To see if Oliver can keep up with his vow to stop the killing and yet still protect everyone he loves, as well as smooth things over between Roy and the Arrow, be sure to tune in for an all new episode of ARROW on Wednesday, December 11th at 8:00 p.m. on the CW.

A- Arrow Season 2

In “Identity,” the second episode of the excellent second season of Arrow, Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) is chasing his frequent adversary, gang leader China White (Kelly Hu). Having recently declared a “no kill” edict for himself in honor of his slain best friend, the Arrow chooses to incapacitate his foe rather than go for a kill shot, eliciting Hu to snidely declare that despite his new philosophical aversion to murder, he’ll still never be seen as anything but a criminal to the very people he’s trying to protect.

The Arrow’s response—that as long as his city is safe, it doesn’t matter what its denizens think of him—is significant, because it puts a perfect capper on the show’s journey up until that moment, while also offering an exciting jumping-off point for what’s to come. Although Amell had been donning the hood and chasing bad guys for more than a season, it was in this moment that a superhero was born and that Arrow officially established itself as one of the most satisfying shows on television. The most satisfying thing of all is that it did so by respecting its characters.

A superhero show on The CW is inevitably forced to face an uphill battle with public perception, especially from the very comics fans that most want it to be successful. Will the leads be too pretty? Will the stories be too soapy? Will the character’s rich mythology be ignored? Arrow smartly deals with these concerns by using them to the show’s advantage, respecting the character’s comic-book roots in its overarching plotlines, all while using the network-appropriate soap-opera stories to do the heavy character lifting. This was best exemplified by last season’s love triangle between Oliver and longtime friends Laurel (Katie Cassidy) and Tommy (Colin Donnell), an arc that started as bland nonsense, but slowly and effectively evolved into something much deeper for all three parties. It did this by essentially making Amell the bad guy and betrayer—not because he stole his best friend’s girl, but because he kept his secret identity hidden, a secret identity that Donnell could not bring himself to even comprehend, let alone accept.

At its heart this is basic superhero stuff, but what Arrow always recognizes is how to take these tropes and use them to resonate beyond their traditionally narrow scope. When Tommy dies while trying to save Laurel from an earthquake machine that’s threatening to destroy a whole neighborhood (an earthquake machine placed there by his supervillain father—this is a comic-book show after all), it informs everything about Oliver and Laurel in season two. Arrow uses ripple effects such as these to create a world where every action builds upon itself, every personal choice has consequences, and the past is just as important as the future.

Arrow Mask -- exclusive EW.com image Three Ghosts

Oliver Queen will soon be a masked hero.

EW has your exclusive first look at Arrow’s brand new mask, which will make its debut on the show come December. But why the change? According to executive producer Andrew Kreisberg, the answer is multi-faceted. ”Conceptually, it was something we wanted to do because Oliver himself is evolving as the Arrow– from vigilante to hero, sort of from Arrow to Green Arrow — and we wanted to see that progression in his costume as well,” he said. “As Oliver is embracing being a hero, being a hero means stepping out of the dark and being more of a symbol, so he has to take steps to conceal his identity more.”

Adding a mask also comes with logistical benefits, he said. In the second season, Oliver has found himself working much more closely with several people who don’t know his true identity — like Laurel’s father Det. Lance, for example — and it was getting harder and harder to believably hide Oliver’s face under the hood. “It’s going to allow the Arrow to interact with people who don’t know his identity in a much more organic way than having him constantly keep his head down,” says Kreisberg.

Costume designer Maya Mani put together roughly 50 mask options for the producers before they landed on the dark green design you see in these exclusive photos. Kreisberg credits exec producer Greg Berlanti for steering them toward simplicity. “A lot of our early attempts were very, shall I say, Joel Schumacher-esque. And it was really Greg who said not to overcomplicate it,” he said. “And I think what’s so wonderful about the design that Maya came up with is that it really is very simple, and it feels as if it’s been part of his costume since the beginning…once we finally had this mask and put it on Stephen [Amell], even Stephen was like, ‘This is the right one.’”
