The CW has released a new action-packed promo trailer for Arrow featuring Stephen Amell as Oliver Queen kicking all kinds of ass. This really does look like it's going to be a entertaining series. Eli had a chance to see the pilot episode for the series at Comic-Conm and he thought it was great! In his review he mentioned a few things that surprised him saying,
First surprise: Arrow is violent!!!! The 'hooded man' has no qualms about murdering people. He comes back to Star City with a clear cut path of vengeance, and he's not gonna let anyone stop him. They wanted to go dark, and they went as dark as a CW show is allowed to go! Very exciting stuff.
This trailer shows off some of that violence. To read the rest of his positive review of the series click here. Arrow is scheduled to premiere on October 10th on the CW. Enjoy the trailer and let us know if you plan on tuning in!
Here's the Synopsis:
After a violent shipwreck, billionaire playboy Oliver Queen was missing and presumed dead for five years before being discovered alive on a remote island in the Pacific. When he returns home to Starling City, his devoted mother Moira, much-beloved sister Thea, and best friend Tommy welcome him home, but they sense Oliver has been changed by his ordeal on the island. While Oliver hides the truth about the man he’s become, he desperately wants to make amends for the actions he took as the boy he was. Most particularly, he seeks reconciliation with his former girlfriend, Laurel Lance. As Oliver reconnects with those closest to him, he secretly creates the persona of Arrow – a vigilante – to right the wrongs of his family, fight the ills of society, and restore Starling City to its former glory. By day, Oliver plays the role of a wealthy, carefree and careless philanderer he used to be – flanked by his devoted chauffeur/bodyguard, John Diggle – while carefully concealing the secret identity he turns to under cover of darkness. However, Laurel’s father, Detective Quentin Lance, is determined to arrest the vigilante operating in his city. Meanwhile, Oliver’s own mother, Moira, knows much more about the deadly shipwreck than she has let on – and is more ruthless than he could ever imagine.
