According to Executive Producer, incoming Arrow Season 4 villain Damien Darhk will be more completely evil than villains we’ve seen previously on the series
Mark Guggenheim said
In Arrow, as with most popular fiction, the writers have a tendency to write the villains as “the heroes of their own stories,”
“That’s not the case with Damien. He’s not nearly as moral. We wanted a villain who was pure evil because we’ve never really done that on the show before. That’s what Damien represents. He’s the prince of darkness.”
Arrow returns in October, airing Wednesday nights at 8 p.m. ET/PT on The CW.
