Arrow Adds a Goatee, Slick Tights in New York Comic Con Reel

Stephen Amell in ARROW

Take a gander at a 2-minute sizzle reel featuring some action shots from future episodes of the CW’s new superhero show “Arrow”. I could be wrong, but it does appear as if Green Arrow finally slaps on some very green tights and paints on a fake goatee to better aid in that whole “secret identity” thing. Though I’m not sure if I detect any changes in his voice when he’s in and out of costume, but I could be wrong. At least, he’s not doing any obvious “Batman voice” here, especially during that scene where he chats with ex-girlfriend Katie Cassidy. You’d think she might recognize the guy, tights and hood notwithstanding, that you’ve slept with, but maybe the goatee threw her off.

Anyways, here’s the show’s sizzle reel that was recently shown to attendees at the New York Comic Con.

The show airs on the CW, Wednesdays at 8/7c, and stars Stephen Amell as Arrow and Katie Cassidy as ex-girlfriend Laurel Lance. In the two-minute spot, you get glimpses of future villains, including Deathstroke (the guy with the two colors in his mask), Kelly Hu as China White, and I do believe Deadshot takes a shot (or a dozen) at our hero as well. Plus, John Barrowman of “Doctor Who” and “Torchwood” fame gets a limo cameo near the beginning.
