New Promo Trailer for The CW's ARROW
The CW has released a new promo trailer for their Green Arrow TV series, Arrow. The new ad asks the question... "What has Oliver Queen become?" Kind of a silly question as I'm pretty sure everyone already knows what he's become a vigilante motivated to clean up Starling City, and find redemption. The superhero is being played by Stephen Amell, and 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.
Arrow is scheduled to premiere on October 10th on the CW. Are you looking forward to watching this new DC superhero series? Do you think it will be a hit or miss for the fanboys and fangirls?
