Arrow Executive Producer: expect Arrow to move ‘faster’ than Flash Forward
If you were a fan of Lost, you know that the biggest problem with the story (if you were one of those fans that called it a problem) in seasons 2 and 3 was the lack of answers. On the rare occasion when a question was answered, that answer would open up ten more questions. It began to get frustrating.
The CW’s Arrow kicked off this month with a two-fold story. Similar to Lost, part of the story is told through flashbacks. The viewer follows Oliver Queen’s journey on the island and the eventual rise of his Green Arrow alter ego. Executive Producer Marc Guggenheim warned of the dangers of not answering questions.
Viewers will start answering questions on what happened on the island as early as episode 2, Guggenheim said at New York Comic Con.
“We’re going to move faster. Lets give answers very quickly and then just present new questions after.”
Unlike Flash Forward, the creative team doesn’t plan to make the mistake of holding back on the big reveals until after the show is a hit. Guggenheim said that Greg Berlanti, Andrew Kreisberg and he plan to move quickly through the story and “never take our foot off the gas.”
