This new extended trailer is for the Green Arrow TV show called Arrow.
It gives us a good look of how Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) went from being a spoilt rich kid to a a crime fighting archer. There is definitely a Dark Knight vibe with the footage of him setting up his hideout and training. Plus we get to see some of the trick arrows.
The scenes in the Queen mansion do have a hint of Smallville (the Lex Luthor type mansion doesn’t help) and the dramas full of beautiful people, but that is sort of the life that the characters are involved in.
The line “I am Arrow” seems a bit off. Silly as it may seem I feel “I am Green Arrow” just sounds a bit better when said out loud. Go on, try it.
I may have to zone out a bit during the daytime interactions as the acting looks a bit soap opera, but the action scenes are looking good. I am cautiously optimistic about the show.
Oh and check out the bit at 3:22 – Deathstroke’s mask maybe?
“After a violent shipwreck, billionaire playboy Oliver Queen was missing and presumed dead for five years before being discovered alive on a remote island in the Pacific. When he returns home to Starling City, his devoted mother Moira, much-beloved sister Thea, and best friend Tommy welcome him home, but they sense Oliver has been changed by his ordeal on the island. While Oliver hides the truth about the man he’s become, he desperately wants to make amends for the actions he took as the boy he was. Most particularly, he seeks reconciliation with his former girlfriend, Laurel Lance. As Oliver reconnects with those closest to him, he secretly creates the persona of Arrow — a vigilante — to right the wrongs of his family, fight the ills of society, and restore Starling City to its former glory. By day, Oliver plays the role of a wealthy, carefree and careless philanderer he used to be — flanked by his devoted chauffeur/bodyguard, John Diggle — while carefully concealing the secret identity he turns to under cover of darkness. However, Laurel’s father, Detective Quentin Lance, is determined to arrest the vigilante operating in his city. Meanwhile, Oliver’s own mother, Moira, knows much more about the deadly shipwreck than she has let on — and is more ruthless than he could ever imagine.”
