We learned a lot about Arrow: Season 4 at San Diego Comic-Con this past weekend, as the cast and producers came with plenty of new info on big changes in store for the show this fall.

Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) retired as the vigilante Arrow in “Arrow” season 3 and to the public’s eye, Roy Harper (Colton Haynes) was the masked vigilante. Darhk will also bring a new element into the series, magic and mysticism.

What are you most excited about in “Arrow” season 4?

“Arrow” season 4 is packed with interesting and exciting things, which fans should watch out for when it premieres this fall on The CW. “That last scene is gonna haunt the rest of the season”.

It seems that Neal McDonough was the first choice for Damien Darhk. “I feel like she went through a year that wasn’t necessarily her favorite”, said Rickards, according to io9. I think she got burned a couple too many times, and then found herself in situations she wasn’t exactly sure she wanted to be in or if she was being true to herself between Ray [Palmer] and between Oliver [Queen], and if she was giving enough time to what she truly wanted.

The actress noted that Felicity lost a little bit of her strength in the third season and she hates seeing the character cry so much. Rickards responded by claiming that was her hope and that she wants to see Felicity get funnier again, as she does not want to see her character simply crying all the time.

“It does because it takes away Felicity sort of walking on eggshells to a certain extent because she would touch him and be like, ‘Oh my God, ‘ but now she kind of gets to touch him and still be like, ‘Oh my God, ‘ but she’s allowed to stay there”. And that is something I admire about her. I think she was true to herself past year, but I just don’t know if she necessarily knew what she was doing was authentic and she was trying to find it. As for Felicity, Oliver Queen will continue to be on her side.

“Arrow” season 4 will be slightly different to say the least.
