Green Arrow fans had cause to rejoice last week when CW’s premiere of comic book adaptation Arrow not only didn’t suck, but saw the highest ratings on that network in 3 years. In anticipation of the next episode, “Honor Thy Father”, the show hit a bullseye at New York Comic Con where a sizzle reel showcasing footage from the next few episodes was shown. You can watch that after the text below. Fans should keep an eye out for the Royal Flush Gang, Deathstroke, China White and the character that John Barrowman is set to play.
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, 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. The series stars Stephen Amell as Oliver Queen, Colin Donnell as Tommy, Katie Cassidy as Laurel Lance, David Ramsey as John Diggle, Willa Holland as Thea Queen, with Susanna Thompson as Moira Queen and Paul Blackthorne as Detective Quentin Lance.
