Arrow Will Have a Dolph Lundgren-Heavy Episode Set Mostly in the Russia Flashbacks This Season
http://comicbook.com/2017/01/18/arrow-w ... ly-in-the/

Action movie icon Dolph Lundgren will take center stage in an upcoming Arrow episode set almost entirely during the flashbacks later this season.

Executive producer Marc Guggenheim told ComicBook.com that he and the writers were aware of the excitement fans have for both Lundgren and the Bratva flashbacks, as well as the additional social media attention on all things Russian just now, all of which makes the episode seem like a good way to fill in some backstory.

"Russia is very much in the zeitgeist these days, and coming into the back half of the year, we're doing a lot more with Russia," Guggenheim told ComicBook.com. "We're going to do a Russia-centric episode, a flashback-centric episode like we did in the first three years of the show. We'll be doing that later on in the season and that will have Dolph Lundgren's character, Konstantin Kovar, very much front and center."

Guggenheim couldn't say much about what the episode would include, although he did hint that there might be a bit of political subtext in the back half of season 5.

The producer said, "In that episode -- assuming the scheduling works out because we're still writing this episode -- the plan is for Konstantin to have a very key meeting with a corrupt, American multimillionaire businessman. Make of that what you will."

That "scheduling" comment, though, makes it sound like this won't be a 1:1 comparison to U.S. President-Elect Donald Trump, but rather somebody who audiences might recognize (with a bit of Trump subtext on the side).

No word on which episode he's talking about, although later in our conversation he made specific references to events that will take place in episode 12, so it seems likely that the Kovar-centric episode will be at least episode 13.

The midseason premiere of Arrow, "Who Are You?," will air Wednesday, January 25 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on The CW.

That's good news, one of the few things that's really allowed Dolph to explore his acting talents in the last while.

Executive producer Wendy Mericle
Once we cast Dolph Lundgren, we knew it was a game changer, so we’re very excited about Kovar. We have a great plan in store for the back half of the season and how they’re going to finally face each other down and what that final battle is going to look like. It’s going to be cool to see Stephen [Amell] and Dolph trading blows.

Off to Russia, er, I mean Vancouver to witness the insanity that is #Arrow 517. Might be my favorite episode I've ever written for the show.

And Kevin Tancharoen is directing it? That's awesome news! He's great. Pretty much all the best episodes of the Marvel's Agents of SHIELD are directed by him.

“I’m going back at the end of the season,” says Lundgren of Arrow. “I’m doing three more [episodes], trying to work it in somehow.”

He adds, “I have a lot of fun, because my character talks quite a bit, which is nice, and he’s kind of comedic.”
