The CW’s New ‘Arrow’ Poster: Who Needs Costumes?
You know, we’d probably try to find fault with The CW’s new poster for the forthcoming superhero drama ‘Arrow,’ featuring Stephen Amell as the titular hero clad only in trousers and a quiver, if not for the fact that comic books themselves shamefully exploit the male and female forms in a similar manner. That said, how would you like a fresh look at The CW’s hottest new fall shows, including ‘Arrow,’ ‘Beauty and the Beast,’ and ‘Emily Owens, M.D.’?
Fall is nearly upon us, and while The CW will be getting a later start this year than the other major networks so as to have a chance of competing, the network is getting an early jump on key art for its sexier new shows. Posters for ‘Arrow,’ ‘Beauty and the Beast,’ and ‘Emily Owens, M.D.’ have emerged, and they’re…well, many a teenage girl would be pleased.
The first new piece of key art for ‘Arrow’ features Stephen Amell as the titular lead Oliver Queen, but you might not know that to look at him, with the lack of costume, or even any kind of shirt. Of course, we know him to wear a green costume and even mask throughout the series, as well as incorporate a number of DC characters, but darn it if that poster isn’t going for broke.
The network also released posters from its other fall efforts, including the Kristin Kreuk / Jay Ryan update of ‘Beauty and the Beast,’ and quirky medical drama ‘Emily Owens, M.D.’ We had a chance to check out ‘Beauty and the Beast’ at Comic-Con 2012, and it’s…well, it happened.
Check out all three posters below, and tell us what you think of ‘Arrow,’ ‘Beauty and the Beast,’ and ‘Emily Owens, M.D.’ in the comments!
