Last year, we got the first trailer for Arrow’s third season during the San Diego Comic-Con. They’ve kept us waiting this time though, but following its premiere at Dragon Con, we finally have the first footage from the show’s upcoming fourth season to pore over and dissect.
When Arrow returns, it will have undergone something of a status quo shift. While the tone appears to have remained the same, Oliver Queen looks set to finally embrace his role as a superhero rather than a vigilante, hence the change in costume and name (Arrow is dead, long live Green Arrow). That’s touched on here, but is far from the only huge reveal!
From surprise appearance to nods to the source material and major new story reveals, here you will find the ten most noteworthy moments from the new trailer for Arrow. There are of course some spoilers if you’re not up to date, but you can catch up with
10. Oliver Queen’s New Life
At the end of Arrow’s third season, we saw Oliver Queen and Felicity Smoak driving off into the sunset together. With Ra’s al Ghul dealt with and The Arrow believed dead, Ollie decided it was time for him to have a normal life, and that’s exactly what we see in the opening few moments of this trailer. Those of you who aren’t fans of “Olicity” may want to turn away as the couple is blissfully happy in an almost sickeningly sweet display which feels very out of place in the world of Arrow. In fairness though, it’s hard to not be happy for these characters after all they’ve been through, but it quickly becomes apparent that it’s time for the former vigilante to again suit up and start fighting crime in Starling City. Or should that be Star City?
