The Arrow Cast Sang A Song From Hamilton at Comic Con

After years of dismissing questions about a potential musical episode, the cast of Arrow took to the stage at Comic Con International: San Diego last night to remind fans why it's such a popular request.

While series star Stephen Amell emphatically guaranteed a musical episode of Arrow will never happen, recurring villain John Barrowman suggested that perhaps The CW, which airs Arrow, should invest in an original scripted musical.

You can see the cast performing "You'll Be Back" from the hit Broadway musical Hamilton below.

Unsurprisingly, John Barrowman was the instigator, although Emily Bett Rickards, Stephen Amell, and especially Echo Kellum played a big role in making the song a success.

With Diggle's departure from the team and Black Canary's death, the only two members of Team Arrow left standing at the end of Season Four were Oliver and Felicity, who have drafted some help in the form of Echo Kellum, otherwise known as Mister Terrific.

They'll need all the help they can get as they take on a new vigilante, one who has a history with Oliver, and a true reason to hold a grudge. In fact, you could say he or she only exists because of Oliver, and that will play a major role throughout the season.

Combined with the return of Madison McLaughlin's Artemis, and new addition Cody Rhodes as a yet unnamed character, things will be quite busy in the Arrowverse this year. Not to mention the mystery of what Laurel told Oliver in her final moments, which is the biggest question mark leading into next season.


Arrow returns to The CW on Wednesday, October 5th at 8 p.m. ET/PT.
