CW has started the hype train for Arrow, its upcoming fall drama based on DC Comics’ Green Arrow. Today, they’ve released the first trailer for the show, which will air Wednesday nights at 8 Pm. Arrow is about the son of a billionaire who is found alive after five years on a deserted island. Before his brush with death he was a lot like the Green Hornet, brash and arrogant and a playboy that liked to spend money. Afterwards, he’s intent on avenging his father’s death and the men who have plagued Starling City. Ugh, why not just call it Star City like it should be?

The show stars Stephen Amell (Hung) as Oliver Queen, our hero, and a slew of familiar faces. There’s Paul Blackthorne (The River) as Detective Quentin Lance, Brian Markinson (Caprica) as a/the villain Adam Hunt, and David Ramsey (True Blood) as John Diggle, »
