Slow Playing The Build Up To Adrian Chase / Vigilante

vigilanteA lot of new vigilantes have been added to Arrow this season – Ragman, Wild Dog, Artemis and Mr. Terrific… but there is one more being built up in the background: Adrian Chase / Vigilante. We met that Chase side of the character played by Josh Segarra and we've seen a sketch of the mask in the first episode. So when do we get to see more? Look to episode seven which is titled: Vigilante.

Executive producer Marc Guggenheim told

What's kind of fun about the way we're writing Adrian, and the way we're portraying Josh's character, is we're writing with the knowledge that the audience has a certain amount of comic book knowledge. If they don't, if you're not a comic book fan, it'll fly over your head and it's totally fine; it's like an adult joke in a Pixar movie. But if you are familiar with the comic, then you'll probably interpret certain scenes in a very specific way, and that's fun for us. I don't think we've ever really done it in this fashion before, use what I call their comic book destiny as part of the storytelling.
