Fall TV Preview

Arrow Hot Shots: Oliver Gets His Super Start — Plus, Geoff Johns to Pen Huntress Episode

Whether you like your Stephen Amell rugged/hairy or cleaned-up/slick, this Arrow gallery is for you.

In these new shots from the first episode of The CW’s fall superhero drama, we see Amell’s Oliver Queen both during his shipwreck-induced island stay (where he could double for Saturday Night Live’s The Falconer) and after his rescue (where he could double for a GQ cover boy). It’s after he returns to society, of course, that the presumed-dead playboy becomes a bow-wielding vengeance machine.

We also get one shot of Willa Holland as his sister Thea – but really: It’s all Amell, all the time. You’re welcome.

In other Arrow news that hits the bulls-eye: DC Comics veteran scribe/exec Geoff Johns announced on Twitter that he is cowriting Episode 7, which introduces Jessica De Gouw as the Huntress.

Arrow debuts Wednesday, Oct. 10 at 8/7c. Click through the gallery below and then hit the comments with your thoughts on the pilot pics!

  • Everything I keep seeing about this show has made me think they’ve found the right man in Armell. Fantastic choice.

  • He does look a lot like good ol’ Ken Mortimer. All he is missing is his faithful sidekick, Donald. (I have no clue how, or why, I remember the names of The Falconer and his pet. heh)

  • Here’s hoping the show is good enough to justify lasting long enough to introduce Dinah Lance/Black Canary.
