Writer and co-executive producer Andrew Kreisberg says: [dropped] the "Green" from the title because "Arrow" felt "sexier, a little more dangerous. But I think the name change also reflects that this version is noticably different from the Smallville incarnation, but also from the Comics. Lead actor Stephen Amell says: Nobody in our universe has ...

The TV show actually uses a similar origin story to the very first Green Arrow comics from the DC 'Golden Age'. The only major difference is that in the comic, Oliver Queen was actually the boy's father, Green Arrow himself being Roy Harper. Here is a quick rundown of the original comic book story from the DC database: Roy Harper was a young boy whose ...

This article from Screenrant suggests that it was done to reach a wider audience. Presumably the name "Arrow" might attract people who could be turned off by the comic-book-sounding name "Green Arrow." Anyway, it seems he is more about the Arrow now than the Green:

Pretty sure it's former child actor Stefan Arngrim. He was both on Fringe (as 'Store Owner') and Arrow (as 'Fence'). Here are more recent photos of him:

I haven't read anything official that would point to this, but I do believe that the shift in Oliver's moral convictions was planned from the start. In the first season, Oliver's alter ego was called The Hood. The Hood had no qualms in killing people he thought deserved it. Come the second season and Oliver has a change of heart. One of the first things he ...

"If you do this, my people will make you and your children orphans" Speaking of style, huh :))

It's something like: "If you won't let us go, my people will find you and your children" The rest I couldn't understand because of his accent...

My answer is based on "Wall Street", not real-life economics. So in "Wall Street", there was discussion of a company's assets (buildings, raw materials, machinery, office equipment, intellectual property, etc.) being worth more than the cost of buying the company. In that case, a Gordon Gecko could buy the company in question, "liquidate its assets" as they ...

There are many reasons to buy a company. For example: patents, know-how, market share, clients, diversification of business, new markets, eliminate competition, get what they need and sell the remaining. For example in Pretty Woman Richard Gere character buy firms in difficulty and sells them to pieces, buildings, land, cars, intellectual property, etc, ...

I've just finished watching the first season of Arrow and noticed this too. I tried some online research, but I've come up empty, so here's my highly subjective speculation on the issue. It's a possible mistake. The producers just didn't notice. This is unlikely, but it is possible. I remember watching an episode of CSI New York where the detective handled ...

Its not a rumor anymore, its confirmed by makers. He was intended to come in three episodes but the count of episode he is going to come is not confirmed yet. In July 2013, it was announced that Berlanti and Kreisberg, along with Nutter and Geoff Johns, would be creating a television series based on The Flash, with an origin story for Barry Allen. ...

He didn't have any solid leads to go on. He didn't know where he was being kept before he eavesdropped on Malcolm and he only did that because he was following his mother after she reacted strangely on the news Walter was dead. He only got that news after his last act of cleaning up the neighbourhood got him the clue he needed. If he knew where he was in ...

According to this Screenrant article the creators of Arrow have stated the following will happen: Arrow and The Flash will have a crossover event when each show hits episode 8. Each crossover episode for each show will be a two-hour event. ... Other small crossovers will happen – like Felicity going to Central City (S3E4) So yes, Arrow and the ...

Oliver still feels partly responsible for Slade's condition, and Shado's death, making him hesitant to murder Slade outright. Even as Oliver begins to accept the fact that Slade is going to have to die, Oliver's focus is always more on protecting the people he loves first, and killing Slade second. Given that Slade already outclasses Oliver both physically ...

She meant it as a slight insult, implying that Roy had changed when he started dating Thea. Abercombie and Fitch is an upscale clothing brand that is considered "trendy", particularly among the children of middle-to-upper class parents. I'm not sure what the word for "preppy" is these days, but that's how I'd describe it. Roy and Sin, on the other hand, are ...

Whilst the creators of the show may have intended differently, Emily Brett-Richards commented: “I think I was very lucky. Felicity came in at a point where the show needed that sort of light and that sort of chemistry, so I was lucky to be able to pick that up, fit that role, and fit with the show. As time goes on, I've heard many stories, but as ...

I think @System Down has summed up all the imported points. Just to add something though, here is an interview from Time Magazine the shows co-creator, Mark Guggenheim, where he discussed the change of direction in Season 2 compared to Season 1: TIME: Were there different sorts of things you wanted to accomplish with Season 2 compared with Season 1? ...

The Mirakuru makes it more difficult for Slade to be killed, since he's stronger and able to heal quickly, hence why Felicity has S.T.A.R Labs working on a cure.

Disclaimer : I'm not a economic guy just a student of CS, so my answer may not be definitive or correct. Just googled and got some info that I'm going to share. From HowStuffWorks But sometimes the target doesn't want to be acquired. Perhaps they are a company that simply wants to stay independent. Members of management might want to avoid ...
