Arrow Will Have Its Own Version of the Daredevil Hallway Fight in Season 5
After only a year, Daredevil's hallway fight has become one of the most iconic fight scenes in any superhero cinematic adaptation. Now, other shows are wisely taking its lead, as Arrow's Stephen Amell promises the most "vicious" continuous take in the history of network television.

On a Facebook live chat (via TV Line), Amell said the premiere of Arrow's season five "has the opportunity for us to have the most vicious, violent one-shot in the history of network television." He obviously couldn't say "in a television show," because then they would be pitting themselves directly against Daredevil, but it sounds like they'll be attempting to achieve that level of brutality, as much as the network censors allow at least.

Opening quote
"If [the premiere] is any indication, Arrow is going to be f–king mean this year," he added, "and that's really exciting."
Closing quote

Amell also teased a few other tidbits about season five, including the fact that The Flash's Flashpoint storyline "certainly could" affect Arrow (which we figured, but it's exciting to have it confirmed), as well as the return of a character that we haven't seen in two full seasons. But who could that be? It can't be Slade, since we saw him in the middle of season 3, and we know that Madison McLaughlin is returning as Artemis, but she was last seen in season four. Let the wild speculation begin!

Arrow returns for season five this fall on The CW.
