New Arrow Season 4 Concept Art Teases Green Lantern
Arrow and The Flash have both dropped heavy hints at the Green Lantern mythology from the start, and now Arrow has dropped an anvil for season four. Yesterday, Marc Guggenheim posted concept art for the upcoming season on Ow.ly, and it contains a blatant reference to Green Lantern's infamous mantra:

New Arrow Season 4 Production Art Teases Green Lantern

We already knew that the first part of the fourth season takes place in Coast City, Hal Jordan's hometown  but in this concept art, there is a direct reference to the superhero. "In brightest day, in blackest night" is clearly a nod to Green Lantern's oath, which reads:

Opening quote
In brightest day, in blackest night,
No evil shall escape my sight
Let those who worship evil's might,
Beware my power... Green Lantern's light!
Closing quote


Does this mean we can look forward to an appearance from Hal Jordan? Not likely, according to Guggenheim, as "[Warner Bros.] announced the Green Lantern Corps movie, and I'd be surprised if it didn't include Hal Jordan," he said at San Diego Comic Con (via THR). "It would be great but I doubt it very much."

So Hal Jordan is likely off the table, unless the DCCU pulls a Marvel and starts cooperating much more with its television universe than it has in the past. There's still a chance that we could see Jon Stewart, though, as Diggle is about to become a costumed superhero and many claim that he will play an iteration of Green Lantern. Producers deny that as well, but if it were true, they likely wouldn't want to spoil the surprise.

It could also just be an Easter egg for fans of the comics, but the many references to Green Lantern imply that the hero will come into play in some form. We'll most likely see a minor character from the Green Lantern universe, probably Carol Ferris, as Ferris Airlines has been teased several times on the show.

Arrow returns for season four on October 7 at 8pm ET on The CW.
