Sure Marvel Comics has the big screen on lock, with their ever expanding movie universe. And The Walking Dead has cornered the mature market on AMC, with the uber-popular zombie drama. But when it comes to the small screen superheroes, no one’s touching DC’s Arrow on the CW.
Already one-and-a-half seasons deep, the ongoing adventures of the Green Arrow (on the show referred to as the Vigilante or the Hood) and company has been a solid hit for the little network. They’ve done a great job of balancing the melodrama one comes to expect from the CW, with movie-level battle choreography and a healthy load of comic book easter eggs. So when this extended trailer for the rest of the season dropped today, courtesy of star Stephen Amell, it took everything within me from not entering a fanboy-induced coma.
Showcasing Black Canary, Roy, Diggle, Deadshot, Bronze Tiger, Sharpnel, Waller, Huntress, and Deathstroke (YES! Deathstroke!), strap yourself in and get ready for DC and CW have planned for us.
Arrow airs on Wednesday at 8pm on the CW.
