Stephen Amell

Move over, Clark Kent: There's a new superhero on The CW.

This fall, Arrow will follow the exploits of Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell), a wealthy playboy who survives a boating accident that leaves him stranded on a deserted island for five years where he hones his archery skills to survive, birthing his alter ego, Arrow.

CW's Arrow will easily set itself apart from Smallville

Upon his return, Arrow will try to clean up Starling City, taking down the criminals who plague his hometown while trying to get redemption for his (and his family's) mistakes —  the least of which the death of Oliver's girlfriend's sister. And since his now-ex-girlfriend is Dinah "Laurel" Lance (Katie Cassidy), aka the future Black Canary, he better start making amends soon.

Check out an exclusive first look at the new trailer for Arrow, which premieres Wednesday, Oct. 10 at 8/7c on The CW.
