3 Minutes of Awesome: Comic-Con Trailer for 'Arrow' Season 2!
A couple of days ago we let you know that there's going to be a new hero in Starling City in the second season of 'Arrow'... The Black Canary has been cast!
Now, with this Comic-Con trailer, we get our first glimpse at the Canary (played by Caity Lotz), as well as three minutes of non-stop 'Arrow' action. The Black Canary is slated as a recurring character on 'Arrow,' meaning a long-term arc is in store for Lotz. There has been some speculation on how the series will handle Black Canary's classic high-pitched scream, which she uses to disable opponents; considering the strict "no super powers" rule of 'Arrow's world, they will have to modify it to some sort of technological assistance.
It seems that The CW is well aware of what made this show such a breakout success in its freshman season: take a healthy dose of intrigue, add spectacular action sequences and mix. Considering how impressive the action sequences, explosions and special effects were during 'Arrow's premiere season, we have a lot to look forward to now that the budget has been raised and a full-scale second season is on its way.
The action-packed first season of 'Arrow' will be available on DVD and BluRay on September 17. Starring Stephen Amell as the DC Comics superhero Green Arrow, 'Arrow' follows Oliver Queen as he returns from years marooned on a mysterious island. Presumed dead, Oliver arrives in Starling City with the skills and experience he gained on the island, determined to use his abilities to clean up the city and fight crime.
The series has skyrocketed Canadian Stephen Amell to fame. The dual narrative of the show--both the storyline of Queen as the Hood and of a younger Queen fighting to survive on the island--has allowed Amell to showcase different personas, moods and emotions for the same role. When asked by IGN, months ago, how Oliver Queen would handle 'Arrow's explosive finale, Amell said the following:
"The reason that he was the vigilante, the Hood, all that stuff is gone now. Merlyn’s been stopped, the list is essentially somewhat obsolete, the Glades are destroyed. If he’s going to become the vigilante again or something different, he’s gonna need a new reason."
Here's your reason to get excited for the second season of 'Arrow!'
