Stephen Amell happens to be the driving force for many 'Arrow' fans - and going by his latest picture, season 7 doesn't look disappointing at all. At least in terms of the visual appeal.
Taking to social media, the Green Arrow actor recently shared a glimpse from the Super Max prison, where he is locked up with a bunch of crooks and criminals - the same ones who were put behind the bars by none other than Amell's vigilante hero.
"S7. Don’t skip leg day," the 37-year-old DC star wrote, adding a tongue-in-cheek twist to the image. To the delight of many fans, though, the season 7 photo featured the 'Arrow' star in all his glory, dripping wet as he tackles his opponent in what appears to be from a steamy shower scene. If you are wondering, yes the actor is barely covered in the glimpse, making it all the more intriguing in terms of the vigilante's storyline.

Who is he fighting? What does the Super Max prison have in store for the Green Arrow, especially after he uncharacteristically revealed his identity to the world? Will the DC hero be able to make out of the prison in one piece? And above all, what will be Arrow's role in the upcoming Arrowverse crossover titled 'Endworlds'?
Our guess is as good as yours. As of now, the only thing that we know for sure is that the event is more or less set in Gotham City (another reference to the Batman angle) and that the three-day special event will most likely involve the Arrow, the Flash, and Supergirl. But with Amell's character locked up in prison, how will he be able to make the trip to Gotham City?
A subtle hint to the answer can be found in Amell's recent post, as he retweeted a fan's theory linking the crossover to Oliver Queen's current situation.
"Wondering if this year's crossover being #Elseworlds is a way to have Oliver Queen in the crossover while still possibly being in prison...." the fan post read, which the CW actor shared with a "man shrugging" emoticon. Regardless of the future, one thing is certain, 'Arrow' is certainly going to push the envelope in season 7 - after all, that's seems to be the only way this long-running show can survive repetitive narrative.
"We are really trying to push the limits on the show in the gritty factor. We are trying to go as far as you can go within the confines of our network and what is expected of us and what we can do and can't do. We are not on Netflix, so we will never be able to X, Y, and Z, but we are damn sure going to try," Arrow director James Bamford said.
