The “Arrow” madness does not stop! The CW has released another round of footage from their upcoming DC Comics adaptation, this time showcasing a whole lot more than just Oliver Queen being jacked and shooting arrows.
Still, Queen’s very much the focus of the trailer, as he should be. We see his disheveled, bearded visage stalking the remote island he’s been stranded upon for five years, using his expert marksman skills to unleash a signal fire. When he returns home to Star City, Ollie’s got some ‘splaining to do… namely to former flame Laurel Lance (Katie Cassidy), to his own sister (Willa Holland) and to his best friend Tommy Merlyn (Colin Donnell).
Check out the whole trailer past the break!
The “Arrow” synopsis, one more time:
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.
