Hot Arrow Video: A Setback for Oliver, Vertigo's Return, a Gun-Wielding Laurel and More!

Can a disarmed (and drugged?) “Hood” still hit his mark?

That’s just one of the many questions posed in an all-new Arrow sizzle reel, which made its debut Sunday at WonderCon 2013.

Other mysteries put forth in the promo: Why is Laurel wielding a gun? What brings Seth Gabel‘s Vertigo back? Will Roy Harper learn The Hood’s real identity? And how adorable are a pre-island Oliver and Laurel?! (OK, that last one was just for us.)

  2. George2k says:

    Best show on tv

  3. Stuart Fearon says:

    Will Roy harped learn his identity? Doesn’t he become his apprentice?

    • Andy says:

      In the comics, yes. I’m guessing the real question here is, “[When] will Roy Harper learn The Hood’s real identity?”

      • dude says:

        I guess at the end of the day, that’s the question for every character on the show. Eventually, everyone will find out.

    Katie has a nice ass, i don’t understand why they put her in these unsexy underwear instead of some sexy thong.
    In serious level , Arrow is one of the most suprisingly good new tv show.
    Just please don’t listen for any stupid Shipper, they always ruining everything,
    listen to me instead LOL
    Putt the hot chicks Katie, Emily, Willa, in to sexy and revealing outfits.
    Girls has Amell shirtless in every episode , We want some skin to !!!!

    • mia says:

      Because the female characters aren’t there to be “sexy” just for you and your oppressive male gaze. They aren’t objects. If you dont want to/cant see them as fully realized characters without them being super hypersexualized, than I feel sorry for you.

      • mia says:

        Akh, that came out harsher than I meant. Oops.

      • M3rc Nate says:

        He has a point in regards to they show Amell shirtless a LOT…and all of the ads in magazines and posters and billboards are of him shirtless…most likely because it is on the CW which is a channel highly watched by females. So if anything the show IS being sexy on purpose for viewers..but they are female viewers. So would it even out the field for some of the female characters to show a lil skin? Yeah. Not that i want to go down that route and make everything sexy. But just know if the show was on..lets say Fox…the pictures and posters and adds would be of him looking badass in his full outfit with bow drawn to attract male i said, CW? Shirtless ripped man. (And might i point out that its more unrealistic than realistic that she would be in anything but boyshorts or a thong or similar. They dont cause they dont want to alienate their female viewers making it seem like they are just showing female skin to get guys to watch)

        However dont take all that as me picking on the show. I love Arrow, it really is my favorite new show and im shocked how awesome it is. I love (especially considering its on the CW) the killing the Arrow does. Now that might sound harsh, but i cant get over the insane lack of logic or common sense of super heroes (such as batman or superman) who dont kill, and because they dont the badguy they capture and put in prison, who breaks up, ends up killing thousands of more innocents all because the refuse to kill.

        One thing that feels weird about arrow…is so many people knowing the Arrows identity in the first season. Its basically half the characters on the show now. It felt MUCH more natural on the show Smallville when only Clark’s parents knew. Then later in seasons one friend would find out, then another, then another, but spaced out. It doesnt feel WRONG that half the characters know his identity, but just weird.

      You are so right as long as they dont listen to some stupid shippers, this show will remain fantabulous. Just keep the show as it is balanced between the action adventure and the romance melodrama.

    • Diliver says:

      Well you can have the female fanservice al you want, I want more of the male eye candy and service.

      Ollie/Digs/Roy hell yes, I cant really decide if Im into Tommy or not. it changes depending on the day/episode. Hmmm maybe if I see him nekkid (1/2) It will sway me to the Yes side forever, for now I’m meh on him. Ok one more hot guy for season 2 and we are coooool.

      I’m thinking tall, brown eyes, brown hair….or tall, red hair, green eyes, or both. Hmmm who can they be.


  5. mia says:

    Yay! Give Laurel some actual stuff to do! She’s awesome

  6. KD says:

    Looks so good. Can’t wait for the rest of the season. I hope they do more with Tommy, especially now that he knows Oliver is Arrow.

  7. Alia says:

    Ack! Why is Oliver fighting Dig?

  8. CoolKid says:

    That’s Oliver’s father talking to Malcolm at the beginning of the clip, by the way. I assume it’s a flashback scene…

    • brb123 says:

      Yeah, episode 1.21, The Undertaking, is going to reveal Malcolm’s plan for the Glades and why Robert wanted out.

  9. sladewilson says:

    I thought that was Digg too but it isn’t. I’m wondering who is that Oliver is fighting? He got some skills. And who got the drop on Digg with the guns?

    • brb123 says:

      That’s Deadshot aiming the guns at Diggle, Deadshot who killed his brother.. I hope Oliver is near by, otherwise he’ll kill Diggle too.
      Who ever Oliver is fighting is someone that knew him before the island, it’s not Diggle.

  10. Ella says:

    WHY does Thea insist on talking through her teeth?! Also, Oliver and Laurel are LOVE.

  11. Noel says:

    Love this show. I want Oliver and Felicity together so bad!!!

    • Zathe says:

      Oh not this again why cant people just accept they are just friends


      • Katie says:

        Come on let’s not play the ‘just friends’ card.This isn’t like Chloe and Clark. If anything you could relate it to Oliver and Chloe who were endgame. Whatever happens, happens. I like Oliver and Felicity they have awesome chemistry – it would be silly to throw it away for the sake of the ‘just friends’ argument. There is no rush with those two, keep building up their individual characters and see where the chemistry and s/l take us.

    • Katie says:

      This show is so AWESOME! Love that Roy is desperate to find the Hood. Annoying to find out Ollie was even getting action on the island, lol. He’s just unstoppable. And also more Felicity Smoak please. The girl is made of awesome!
      Oliver/Dig/Felicity – The A Team!

  12. Jason says:

    Good grief, this show is freakin’ AWESOMMMMMMMMMMME!

  13. TVDIVA says:

    Arrow puts together the best preview spots. Man, that was as amazing as the show.
