Arrow 7: return of Malcolm Merlyn
A guest at the Supanova Comic con & Gaming Expo in Brisbane, Australia, John Barrowman has made it clear to the audience that he will return in the role of Malcolm Merlyn in this seventh season of Arrow. The news was reported by SpoilerTV.
Of course, many will wonder how the actor will assume the role of Malcolm Merlyn, after the events of the fifth season of the series, which saw him sacrifice himself to allow his daughter Thea to escape from Lian Yu. As anticipated some time ago by Marc Guggenheim, however, the Arrowverse gives his characters the opportunity to go while not making perhaps a direct “resurrection”. “We've always told John that the doors are always open: there are crossovers, flashbacks, parallel universes,...the goodbyes are never final in this world” the words of the Guggenheim.
A striking example of this situation we have with Katie Cassidy, who died before as Black Canary and then, thanks to the parallel universes, following in the series thanks to the doppelganger of Laurel of our Earth, known as the Black Siren.
