Warning: Spoiler Ahead
All four shows set in the Arrowverse have finished their latest seasons but Arrow had surpassed all expectations after poor showing in previous two seasons. However, the season 5 finale apparently killed off Malcolm Merlyn who had played a pivotal role in all of the shows. While fans have speculated that the character might come back in future, John Barrowman recently confirmed that the showrunner actually killed of the character off screen.
During a recent Facebook video, the actor confirmed that Malcolm is actually dead as he decided to save Thea by blowing himself up. Given that the character came back from death in the past, fans said that the character is going to comeback in future although the actor has said that this time the character is actually dead and will be dead forever.
This can be a huge surprise given that last season was pretty big for the actor who became a series regular in the shows set in the universe. During the course of the season, he played major role in Legends of Tomorrow and as the legion has been defeated, Malcolm’s role in the show is apparently over and he returned to Arrow which resulted in his death.
Although everyone involved in the show is saying that the character is dead, it’s difficult to believe the words of showrunners as characters in the Arrowverse is known to come back after death. And given that the character had such a pivotal role to shape the CW shows, chances are, we might see him back in some degree in future. However, we won’t know for sure as the shows go forward. All of the shows set in the Arrow universe have been renewed for another season and will return to television in fall.
