‘Arrow‘ season 2 won’t debut on The CW until October 9, nearly a month behind the other network premieres, though in the meantime we’ve kept up with the superhero drama’s latest DC castings. Now, media from ‘Arrow’ season 2 has finally begun to leak out after Comic-Con 2013, highlighting the cast in an all new poster that doesn’t shamelessly flaunt its abs!
We’d be hard-pressed to derive any information from the first official ‘Arrow’ season 2 poster (obtained via TVLine), though at least the series regular status of Colton Haynes (Roy Harper), Emily Bett Rickards (Felicity Smoak) and Manu Bennett (Slade Wilson) earns a bit of reflection. If nothing else, Slade certainly looks ready for action, and his presence with the other regulars could suggest a present-day appearance!
In addition to incorporating Metamorpho, The Atom and The Flash, ‘Arrow’ season 2 will pick up on October 9 some time after the events of season 1 finale “Sacrifice,” continuing its ‘Batman Begins’-influenced storytelling with the addition of new villains Isabel Rochev (Summer Glau), Brother Blood (Kevin Alejandro), Bronze Tiger (Michael Jai White), League of Assasins member Al-Owal (‘Homeland”s Navid Negahban) and DC character Sin (‘The Killing”s Bex Taylor Klaus).
