Last time we saw Rory “Ragman” Regan was when he left ‘Team Arrow’ right after he damaged his suit beyond repair while containing an explosion. However, it seems like that wasn’t it for the character.
During an interview with Comic Book, near the end of season 5, executive producer Wendy Mericle gave away a few details from season 6, and among them was Regan.
“Moving into Season Six, we’re not calling it a reboot because the show’s still called Arrow and it’s still about Oliver and his team, so that part’s not changing, but we aren’t going to have the flashbacks. It gives us a lot more real estate, a lot more space to hopefully bring in some cool villains and tell some cool character stories — and we have some new characters on the show whose backstories we really haven’t had an opportunity to experience. We saw a little bit of Wild Dog’s, we haven’t seen that much of Dinah’s. If we bring in anybody new or we’d love to have Ragman back at some point as well, we can use the flashback device to tell other people’s kind of islands, if you will. And that part is very exciting.”
She said it casually, like a passing thought, but today executive producer Marc Guggenheim gave us something more. While answering a fan’s question through twitter, he revealed the exact episode where Regan is going to show up, the 5th episode of season 6.
What’s still unknown is how are we going to see him, will he have his powers? Will he not? Looks like we’ll have to wait and see right when Arrow premieres, this Fall.
What do you think about this news? Are you excited to see Rory again?
