Arrow Gets Epic with a 3-Minute Extended Trailer


The Promise

There are moments on the CW’s “Arrow” where I think the show is written by 12-year-olds, and then there are times when it really does the whole superhero thing extremely well. This 3-minute extended trailer, titled “Full Circle,” is one of those times where “Arrow” proves to be the best superhero show on TV. Not exactly a hard feat, given the crappy superhero shows that have been on TV these last few years, but beggars can’t be choosers, right?

Check out what happens when Slade Wilson aka Deathstroke finally comes to Starling City, and Arrow and his compatriots must band together to take him on. You got Roy super punching, the Black Canary looking hot in black leather (so what else is new), and Arrow shooting to kill. Good stuff, good stuff.

The shit gets real starting tonight, with the episode “The Promise”:

Oliver is shocked when he learns that Slade has come to Starling City. Back on the island, as Oliver, Slade and Sara prepare to take over the freighter from Ivo, Sara pulls Oliver aside and tells him he needs to kill Ivo to prevent him from telling Slade what happened with Shado. Oliver feels immense guilt over the situation but realizes Slade’s growing rage from the Mirakuru makes him unpredictable and he could turn on his friends if he thinks Oliver is to blame. Oliver agrees to kill Ivo and the battle begins.

Check out the extended 3-minute trailer for the next few episodes of “Arrow,” and promo images from tonight’s throwdown:

    If your sleeping on this show, you should kick yourself on the head. This is know doubt the best comic book show to ever hit the small screen. Green Arrow, Black Canary, the Huntress, Deathstroke, my boy Michael Jai White playing Bronze Tiger, and the list goes on and on. The action is legit, there’s a great plot, and sub plus galore. If you love comics you need to be watching this show.

      I do really enjoy it but it puts your suspension of disbelief into overdrive. Quentin Lance meets with Arrow and the Black Canary (a guy he has known for years and his DAUGHTER!) is standing a few feet away from them and has no clue who they are! Lol!

      • Debo4735

        I feel you but its always like that Superman, and Clark Kent need I say more. It would be so cool if Ollie wore a prosthetic swash buckling goatee?

        • Juggernaut

          That would be awesome. Don’t think that it will happen though. I did like the fact that after a few episodes they had Ollie implementing the voice altering tech. A light or something on the side of his mask would be cool. That way he could turn that on when he is in close proximity to someone and they wouldn’t be able to identify him due to the glare.

      • Aegon the Conqueror

        Well he did know his daughter was canary.

        • Nix

          Wait, didn’t he only “discover” that because Canary pulled off her mask to show him?

          • Aegon the Conqueror

            Well if you had accepted that your daughter had died years ago I can understand why you’d overlook the fact that a vigilante is a dead ringer for her.

    Anyone else see the russion discount Hugh Jackson in the latest episode?

    I have such a love-hate relationship with this show. I really want to like it…even love it but man there are just way too many BS pandering, spoon-feeding the audience moments to make it acceptable for a mainstream audience. I consider shows like that below what I want to watch…most of the time.

    But like you mentioned, at times they pull off some awesome moments and that makes you want more. Unfortunately with the acting…terrible terrible acting, and just completely “wtf” irrational decision making (ie. this whole thing with Slade hating Oliver) I don’t know how much more I’ll watch. You mention Canary looking hot in leather…there is nothing “hot” about the chick playing her. Aside from the fact that she seems to be trying to hold a golf ball between her lips and her teeth whenever she talks, her acting is pretty much the worst in the show. That’s really saying something considering how bad Cassidy’s (Laurel) acting is. I wish they kept the same actress that was with Oliver on the boat in the first season.

    The scenes that are supposed to carry high emotional weight are more often than not met with an eye roll because of either dialogue or just awful acting. It makes it really hard to enjoy the show.

    I enjoyed the first season so much better. I could put the terrible acting and cringeworthy network TV writing out of my mind because at that point Det. Lance, Tommy, Oliver and Slade were carrying the acting weight of the show. Tommy’s gone, Amell lost the ability to act, Slade is just a moron and Paul, a fantastic actor in everything I’ve seen him in for some reason just isn’t pulling it off anymore. Then you throw in Diggle’s cliche one liners, Roy’s horrible overacting, Sarah’s horrible acting, Laurel’s horrible acting, and Moira’s spoon feeding of the audience and it just becomes difficult to watch. Oh plus they’re pulling the sci-fi crap of bringing every character back…
