New Clip: The CW’s Arrow Has Action In His Sights
After half a decade trapped on an island, Oliver Queen is back on the mainland with more skills to show for it than your usual Survivor contestant. This hard-hitting clip from the CW’s Arrow shows that the DC Comics hero does not need archery equipment to target the bad guys.
The preview clip picks up after billionaire playboy Oliver Queen has been rescued from the island, and then abducted by masked men wanting to know if his father survived the shipwreck that stranded Queen on the island.
Although this is the first DC Comics property that the CW has successfully launched post-Smallville, it does not follow the Smallville version of the Oliver Queen character, portrayed by Justin Hartley.
The new Arrow* is played by Stephen Amell with other cast members including Katie Cassidy, Susannah Thompson and Paul Blackthorne. Our next window into the DC Universe opens Wednesday, Oct. 10, at 8/7c, prior to Supernatural on the CW.

Brent Kincade has often wondered if there was an alternate universe where Aquaman was instead called Waterhombre. He also spends a fair amount of his waking life patiently waiting for friends to mention a Thunderdome so he can roll his eyes and plead, "Can't we just get BEYOND Thunderdome??" (Six times, thus far.)
His first comic book was Spidey Super Stories #4 in 1974, his first Star Trek episode was "City On The Edge of Forever" in 1975, his first Doctor Who was "The Visitation" in 1984.
Once when he was young, he stashed his vinyl Halloween Spider-Man costume in the neighbor lady's shrubs and was later caught red-handed, crawling into the shrubs to change into costume because he had, "Heard a cry for help".
He's a father, an artist, a graphic designer, a cartoonist, and usually pretty handy in a pinch. Brent requests the story of his days be co-written by Harlan Ellison, Steven Moffat and Neil Gaiman, drawn by John Romita, scored by Ben Folds and riffed on by the fine folks at Mystery Science Theater 3000.
