The CW has released the official promotional images from "Divided," the midseason premiere of Arrow, which will air in two weeks.
The images focus a lot of attention on the villains, who were revealed at the end of 2017 to have been working in concert all along under the direction of Cayden James (Michael Emerson).
"It's like an axis of evil on the show. It's fun because all these characters are so different, one from another, that they live up to the breadth and specificity of good comic characters, but it's fun and a little thrilling to see them embodied by real humans with different ways of talking, dialects, or physical carriage, different styles," Emerson told ComicBook.com. "It's good that way, and I have especially enjoyed these last couple of episodes I've found where we are all together a lot, because it is such a swell bunch of smart, funny actors. We have so much to gab about between scenes. In a way, that axis of evil is my Arrow family in a way. We're all on the same boat, too. Kind of in the hierarchy of a TV cast, we are the spicy guest players."
