CW releases new poster and clip hyping 'Arrow' mid-season premiere
CW's hit series 'Arrow' returns to your television this week, January 16 at 8:00pm EST. The hype-machine over at the CW is in full swing, as Marc Guggenheim, Executive Producer on 'Arrow,' released this poster on his personal twitter account yesterday:
The poster features 'Arrow' main character Oliver Queen (played by Stephen Amell) sporting all of the scars and war-wounds he has garnered from his double-life as a costumed vigilante. In 'Arrow,' Queen is a wealthy playboy who was marooned on a dangerous island for years, where he honed his mental and physical abilities. Having been rescued, Queen returned to his home of Starling City determined to clean up the corruption in the city's elite--a path that leads Oliver right back to his own family. 'Arrow' also stars Colin Donnell as Tommy, Willa Holland as Thea Queen, with Susanna Thompson as Moira Queen and Paul Blackthorne as Detective Quentin Lance.
The mid-season premiere episode of 'Arrow' is entitled "Burned" and will feature the live-action debut of DC Comics villain Firefly (played by Andrew Dunbar of 'Stargate Universe'). CW released the following clip to hype Wednesday's episode:
When we last saw Oliver, he had suffered the worst defeat of his vigilante career at the hands of a dark, mysterious archer. Having been beaten severely and laid up in hospital, the mid-season finale left viewers asking the same questions that Diggle is asking Oliver in this clip.
Will Oliver overcome a sudden confrontation with true fear? Will he be able to rescue Laurel from the villainous Firefly?
'Arrow' has been praised for its high production values and stunning physical effects. The series became an immediate hit, with ratings rising over the course of this freshman season. Given the clips and posters being released, it seems CW is pushing for that number to continue climbing as the season finishes up.
Will you be tuning in to the 'Arrow' mid-season premiere on Wednesday?
Woah! I'm really digging the template/theme of this site. It's simple, yet effective. A lot of times it's very difficult to get that ""perfect balance"" between user friendliness and visual appeal. I must say that you've done a very good job with this. In addition, the blog loads very quick for me on Firefox. Outstanding Blog!
