“It’s so frigging awesome,” Arrow Executive Producer Marc Guggenheim said at a press Q&A today. “It really is. I have to say, I’ve never had so much fun writing a script before, maybe, in my life. It was such a blast to work on. We’re filming the Arrow half of it – the Arrow episode – right now, and it’s just so much fun.”
“I kept telling everyone ‘we should try for Avengers.‘ Like, these two heroes together – big production value – we’re blowing out the doors on this. The opportunity for inside jokes, and seeing all of the characters together. Like what happens when Cisco gets his eyes on Thea? Stuff like that. Moments you just can’t do in a normal episode. It’s just so much fun. It’s really going to be a blast. Jesse Warn is directing [the Arrow episode] and he is just crushing it. Those dailies are really, really insane. Nick Tarabay plays Boomerang, Digger Harkness… he’s amazing, and that weapon [of his] is a whole new visual language in the show, and a whole new visual language for our stunt guys to work with. Watching Grant and Stephen together – it’s magic.”
