We were impressed with the first episode of Arrow on The CW, and if this new sneak peek of the first nine episodes is any indication, then there are even better things to come. In this new Arrow footage from New York Comic Con, we get a look at Deadshot, Deathstroke, The Huntress and China White.
The CW is riding high after the premiere of Arrow, which was the most-watched telecast of any kind on the network in three years. For New York Comic Con, Arrow stars Stephen Amell (Oliver Queen), Katie Cassidy (Laurel Lance) and Willa Holland (Thea Queen) appeared at a special panel session for the show.
Highlights of the first-look footage revealed during the panel included glimpses of upcoming Arrow villains and allies, including several luminaries from the DC Comics Universe.
Well Dressed Man (John Barrowman – Torchwood, Dr. Who) in a clandestine meeting with Moira Queen (series star Susanna Thompson).
Deadshot (Michael Rowe), one of the most deadly assassins in the DC Universe, takes aim at Oliver and his family.
Deathstroke (Jeffrey Robinson – Human Target), the masked Terminator who shares a secret history with Oliver.
China White (Kelly Hu – X2, The Vampire Diaries), the lethal and seductive mercenary able to match Oliver Queen punch for punch.
The Huntress Helena Bertinelli (Jessica De Gouw), who lurks in the shadows to dispense her own form of justice.
Arrow episode two airs on Wednesday, October 17 at 8 PM ET on The CW.
