The CW continues to tease us with promotional material for the fall premiere of its DC universe shows, this time releasing over 20 photographs from the season premiere of ‘Arrow.’ While there are only a handful of shots of the new Green Arrow costume/ Oliver Queen in action, the stills show off plenty, promising that a lot will be happening in the premiere. We get lots of looks at Thea (aka Speedy) rocking her hand-me-down Arsenal costume, looking like she fits nicely onto the team, with or without her brother there. There are also quite a few shots of Laurel aka Black Canary, who is now fully integrated into the team, and clearly ready to take down the bad-guys with the same skill and intensity as everyone around her. There are a lot of Diggle shots, some of them clearly more emotional scenes as he deals with the return of Oliver and his anger at his old partner, and some action shots that make his new costume look much cooler than the earlier released stills. Of course there are also plenty of shots of Felicity, a handful of new villain, Damien Darhk, the new Arrow Cave, Captain Lance, etc, so its probably best if you went through them all now, and just let us know your thoughts on them in the comments below.
After defeating his most formidable foe to date and riding off into the sunset with longtime flame Felicity Smoak, Oliver Queen left Starling City with the hopes of beginning a new life. But will Oliver ever truly be able to leave behind his past as the Arrow, and, if so, what becomes of the team he has worked so hard to assemble? Will Diggle, Thea, and Laurel be left to continue Oliver’s crusade without him? And with Malcolm Merlyn having ascended to the top of the League of Assassins as the new Ra’s al Ghul, is anyone really safe?
