There’s a great weight of expectation on the upcoming fourth season of Arrow. First of all, there was the disappointing return of the third season, which didn’t always seem to know what it was doing, so Arrow has to bounce back from that. Then there’s new costumes, new characters, a supposedly lighter tone, at least one major crossover (with Matt Ryan as TV’s Constantine) and Arrow doing its part to help set up the next spin-off Legends of Tomorrow. The odds are stacked against Team Arrow, and that’s hardly a new position for them, but dare I say that the below photo gallery offers something to get excited about?
Courtesy of ComingSoon are these initial images of the season premiere of Arrow entitled “Green Arrow.” As per previous reveals, Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) will take up the moniker of Green Arrow when the new season begins, and he will rejoin the fight with colleagues Diggle (David Ramsey), Black Canary (Katie Cassidy) and Speedy (Willa Holland) as they face-off against bad guy Damien Darhk (Neal McDonough) to protect the newly renamed Star City. It looks like Oliver is going to be doing a lot of anguishing about suiting up again, but his new girlfriend Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) seems pretty okay with it.
So let’s check out this extensive look at season four of Arrow, in pictures:
So granted the Digneto helmet looks a bit better in action than it does in its key art, and now I’m curious as to why Capt. Lance (Paul Blackthorne) has his arm in a sling, but I think we can all agree that the new Team Arrow line-up looks pretty bad ass. The question now: Can the show’s writers and producers recapture that season two magic? I guess we’ll find out…
The fourth season of Arrow debuts on October 7 at 8 pm on the CW.
