After being criticized for having a ridiculous plot in season 4, has “Arrow” decided to take the safe route and rip off the plot of Marvel’s ‘Daredevil’ Season 2 for its upcoming season?


In trying to compete with its fellow DC counterparts like “The Flash”, “Supergirl” and “Legends of Tomorrow,” all of which packs a lot of supernatural aspects, “Arrow” lost its plot halfway through season 4.

As a result, the finale of the “Arrow” Season 5 failed to impress fans, many of whom took to social media to express their less-than-jolly opinions.

One group of fans had even changed a thread in Reddit, which followed “Arrow” season 4, to “Daredevil” discussion forum!

Apparently, the creators of “Arrow” seem to have taken that move in a positive stride and have decided to make the plot of “Arrow” season 5 resemble that of “Daredevil” Season 2!

According to Movie Pilot, the big bad of “Arrow” season 5, will be modeled on Jon Bernthal’s Punisher. The good news is that the villain will most likely be human and not carry any supernatural qualities, unlike Damien Darhk did in season 4. The bad news is that the villain would be trigger-happy believing that eliminating the opponent completely is the only way to go.

It has also been predicted that Adrian Chase, a character which will be Star City’s District Attorney, will in time transform into the Punisher, which goes up against Oliver Queen.

However, Green Arrow will not be fighting the Punisher alone. He will have help from a new character called Wild Dog, played by Jack Wheeler, who might initially be a lost, violent soul, but will be taken under the Green Arrow’s guidance soon enough, reports Movie News Guide.

Will “Arrow” Season 5 get predictable due to a similar plot as “Daredevil” or will it be able to rectify the mistakes that it made in season 4?

Find out when “Arrow” season 5 returns on 5th October 2016 only on CW.
