As if I wasn’t excited enough, the CW has released the first trailer for Arrow season 2! Not much new footage is shown, but it doesn’t need to. If you aren’t watching Arrow, do yourself a favor and catch up. It was arguably the best new show from last year, in perhaps the greatest year for new shows in my lifetime. After the shocking finale, all fans have been breathlessly waiting for season 2. We are so close! Add in the news that has trickled out over the past month about all the comic book characters they are adding to this season including The Flash, who will get his own spinoff, and the excitement has just kept building. Amazingly well done by the network.
Also released yesterday was the news that Cynthia Addai-Robbinson of Spartacus fame, has been cast as Amanda Waller! Waller is a Nick Fury type character, except on the evil side. She heads up A.R.G.U.S., which we saw a couple of times last year. A.R.G.U.S. is a government ran organization and is known in the DC universe for putting the Suicide Squad together! Waller will make her debut in episode six and look for the Suicide Squad to feature a returning Deadshot and the series premier of Bronze Tiger played by Michael Jae White. Arrow Season 2 premiers Wednesday, October 9 at 8 ET. It can’t get here soon enough.
