Guess who’s coming to dinner!?!?
The CW just released a new trailer for the upcoming Green Arrow television show “Arrow” starring Stephen Amell and there are a couple of interesting items. The biggest for this NerdBastard is the appearance (3:22 mark on video) of the Deathstroke like mask pictured above. Does this mean that Deathstroke will be a recurring villain in the series? Sign me up!
There is a guy, or guys maybe that is running around in a red and black skull helmet/mask that I’m not sure about yet. Could be Black Mask, maybe Red Hood, or could be some new bad guy.
There are a couple of quotes in the trailer that stand out:
“The Oliver you lost . . . might not be the Oliver they found.”
“Nobody can know my secret.” *CRACK*
This is starting to look like a darker look at the Emerald Archer, more along the lines of the Green Arrow: The Longbow Hunters.
Did this trailer change your opinion and desire to watch the show?
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.
