In the lead up to Arrow's new season, one question that's been on the minds of fans is whether Green Lantern would appear on the show. The relationship between Hal Jordan and Oliver Queen goes back decades, with their friendship forming the basis for some of each characters' most classic stories.
Arrow co-showrunner Marc Guggenheim has played coy with the topic, at first denying the possiblity outright, before moving on to hinting that, yes, Green Lantern could possibly appear in some form on the show. Now, speaking to Entertainment Weekly, Guggenheim has revealed that not only will Arrow season 4's flashback scenes place Oliver in Hal Jordan's hometown of Coast City, fans might get a glimpse of a particular ring.
“There is a nod or two,” Guggenheim said of the presence of Green Lantern in Arrow’s Coast City. “There is a billboard that people will get a kick out of, and there may or may not be a ring in the season premiere.”
This 'may or may not' ring certainly conjures up thoughts of a Green Lantern ring, could Guggenheim coyly be referring to another kind of ring? While neither Oliver nor Felicity appear to be wearing wedding rings in the suburban bliss opening seconds of the Season 4 trailer , the Coast City postcard also conjures up nostalgic images of postcards couples might send from their honeymoon.
Just a theory...
Arrow season 4 premieres October 7 on CW.
