Yesterday a full trailer for the CW’s upcoming series Arrow was released! As any regular readers here know, Green Arrow is hands down my favorite comic-book character; and I can’t possibly be more excited for this series! Each clip released has wet my interest more and more starting with the Sample Scene and even more so with the Arrow Teaser. Clocking in at a whopping three and a half minutes, this latest clip gives us the best view and most insight on what to expect from the series yet!
The CW released this week a teaser montage for their new show Arrow to debut Wednesdays this fall. Up until today all we had to go on was this figure cloaked in shadow and the two things that jumped out at me were:
1) He has a recurve bow, thank god he’s not that little twit from the DC reboot
2) He kinda looks like the GA we saw in Smallville.
Before I ramble on any further lets take a look at the clip; roll it Johnny!
My feelings are a bit mixed; for one, just how much of each episode is going to be devoted to showing ole Ollie’s abs (his Arrow-bics, sorry couldn’t help myself)? Also, for whatever reason they have decided to change the name of Star City; not to Seattle or someplace real as they did in the comic reboot, but rather to starling city. Went from being the jewel of the heavens to an annoying songbird. The official notes from CW hint at maintaining GA: Year 1 continuity, which would be a great way to retain the old school fanbase AND get in some really human moments (maybe thru flashbacks or whatever).
