Stephen Amell discusses how Casey Jones will differ from his comic book roots:
It’s certainly not your father’s or your younger self’s Casey Jones, but that’s because we meet him at a very different time in his development. He is not the Casey Jones that a lot of comic fans have come to know and love. He is a guy with a job that lives in New York and loves hockey. When things go awry, [and] when he goes through the normal methods of what someone would do when they’re [a] law-abiding citizen and he’s met with laughter and scorn... he decides to take things into his own hands.

Bill Prady discusses the show’s ethos during the series’ SDCC panel:
The trick of the show, if it works, is to make it feel for the first time that you’re seeing the Muppets in our world. There’s no barrier in the world that they’re in and the world that we’re in. There’s a whole aspect of their personal lives that we don’t know and we’re trying to construct personal lives for them that match the stuff that we do know.
Here’s a new trailer for the show’s new DC special. [/Film]
