CW’s Superbly Action Packed ‘Arrow’ Full-Length Trailer

Posted at June 8, 2012 by 1 Comment

While the dialogue of Arrow looks rather bland, the look and action of the pilot (which has been ordered to series) on The CW looks pretty great. The DC character (originally known as Green Arrow) has made it to our “Best Of Pilots” of the season and we hope it can live up to its other superhero predecessor Smallville. See the full-length trailer after the jump.

The mystery of Oliver Queen disappearance and survival on an island will surely play throughout the first season or at least its initial 13-episode pickup. What’s intriguing is that in the trailer we get a glimpse of the series (possible) main villain, none other than Deathstroke (aka. Slade Wilson). Deathstroke is “a mercenary/assassin who first appeared in Teen Titans and has been a major villain/anti-hero since then, gaining massive popularity throughout the years.”

Here’s a full description of the pilot:

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.

The superhero drama will also be previewing it’s pilot at Comic-Con on July 14th in Ballroom 20.

Arrow is set to premiere Wednesdays @ 8PM/EST on the CW this fall. The series stars Stephen Amell (as Arrow), Colin Donnell, Katie Cassidy and Willa Holland.

    This looks like a POS. Wow, and to think this was produced in the 21st century…
