Arrow CW

The CW recently released an extended preview of their new fall drama, Arrow, which takes a gritty, realistic approach to telling the story of the classic DC Comics character, Green Arrow.

Billionaire playboy, Oliver Queen, is discovered alive on a remote island after having been presumed dead by family and friends for five years, only the Oliver Queen that returns from his time on the island is not the same person that was lost five years prior. Arrow is the alter ego that Oliver Queen develops to cope with his reintroduction to civilization while making ammends for the transgressions of his youth.
