CW's 'Arrow' Rolls Out the Hunks for Season 2




If The CW is known for one thing, it's beautiful people. 

'Arrow,' the surprise smash-hit of last season's CW slate, breaks the mold in one key respect: 'Arrow' features mostly beautiful men, as opposed to the female eye-candy being displayed on several other series. The Superhero action-drama has assembled quite a collection of muscular hunks in their cast... and with this series of posters for 'Arrow's upcoming second season, CW has decided to play to their strengths. 

Stephen Amell, Colton Haynes, David Ramsey and Manu Bennett... known to fans as Oliver Queen, Roy Harper, John Diggle and Slade Wilson. It would seem that the real victims of Oliver's war on crime... are the shirts. 

The posters below come to you courtesy of TVLineE! OnlineEntertainment Tonight, and Access Hollywood.

Oliver Queen poster Arrow

The first poster features our scarred-up hero, Oliver Queen. Played by Canadian Stephen Amell, Oliver is seemingly heading further down the superhero path in the coming season -- perhaps even using a codename. The press has been calling him The Hood. Could the show finally embrace its DC Comics beginnings and call him Green Arrow, directly? 

Roy Harper poster Arrow

Young newcomer to the series, Colton Haynes, plays Roy Harper, a street-tough who admires the vigilante... and may just end up following in his footsteps. As comic fans know, Harper is the secret identitly of Arsenal (formerly known as Red Arrow, formerly known as Speedy), Green Arrow's former sidekick. With a team of heroes (and perhaps a team of villains) being assembled for the second season, which side will Roy be on? 

John Diggle poster ArrowJohn Diggle is already assisting Oliver on his quest... but don't call him a sidekick. Diggle is fighting crime in Starling City without a mask or a secret identity (despite the couple of times he needed to stand in for Oliver under the hood). Diggle seems loyal to Oliver no matter what -- but that loyalty may just get him killed. 

Slade Wilson poster Arrow

Ahhh Slade Wilson... the ticking time-bomb of the 'Arrow' world. Comic fans know what to expect from Wilson and are giddy at the prospect, however the slow-burn the series has used with Slade's storyline has created perhaps one of the most engaging aspects of the series. What'll he do next?

The second season of 'Arrow' premieres Wednesday, Oct. 9 at 8/9c.

I see they are capitalizing on the fifteen year old male theory of programming, but with a slight nod toward the chicks.
