Arrow Season 5 actor Stephen Amell has been posting his workouts over at Facebook for the past few months and the latest photo he shared is an indication that it looks like his hard work has paid off.
The shirtless photo of Amell provided the initial glimpse of what Arrow Season 5 will look like, and fans definitely love it.
The photo of Oliver Queen, the character that Amell is playing in Arrow, showed what seems to be from a fight scene. The actor has earlier said he is looking forward to see a particular fight scene in the premiere episode of season five, titled “Legacy,” iDigital Times noted.
“Suffice to say that episode 501 of Arrow has the opportunity for us to have the most vicious, violent one-shot in the history of network television. I insisted that it’s gonna be me, no stunt double, and he [Director James Bamford] said fine, but you have to do it shirtless,” Amell told fans via Facebook Live.
