#WBSDCC: New Action-Packed SDCC Promo For Season ARROW Teases Deeper Story Layers And A New Villain
With the hype currently building for the third season of the hit TV series, Arrow, netizens got to check out some exciting new footage from the series over the weekend, with our lead hero played by Stephen Amell, as well as a look at actor Manu Lanzi's Deathstroke, Colton Haynes's Arsenal and Caity Lotz's Black Canary to name a few. However, it wasn't until after the San Diego Comic-Con panel yesterday afternoon that fans everywhere were graced with a new version of the epic new teaser, which also offered new look at the forthcoming appearance of supervillian, Ra's al Ghul.
After a violent shipwreck, billionaire playboy Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) was missing and presumed dead for five years before being discovered alive on a remote island in the Pacific. He returned home to Starling City, bent on righting the wrongs of his family and fighting injustice. To do this, he creates the persona of the Arrow and allies himself with former military man John Diggle (David Ramsey), computer-science expert Felicity Smoak (Emily Bett Rickards), street brawler Roy Harper (Colton Haynes) and international assassin Sara Lance (Caity Lotz), while keeping his secret from those closest to him including his sister Thea (Willa Holland), who has allied herself with his most deadly enemy. Rivalries and allegiances will shift as Oliver faces his most difficult challenge yet. Based on characters appearing in comic books and graphic novels published by DC Entertainment, ARROW is from Bonanza Productions Inc. in association with Berlanti Productions and Warner Bros. Television, with executive producers Greg Berlanti (“Green Lantern,” “Brothers & Sisters”), Marc Guggenheim (“Eli Stone,” “Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters”), Andrew Kreisberg (“Warehouse 13,” “The Vampire Diaries”) and Sarah Schechter.
