‘Arrow’ lets loose the first episode of season 2 with its premiere “City of Heroes,” as Oliver Queen returns to find Starling City plagued by copycat vigilantes and his company under the threat of hostile takeover from Isabel Rochev (Summer Glau), while Roy Harper discovers yet another masked hero taking up a vigilante crusade, and Thea visits her mother in prison.
Previous ‘Arrow’ finale “Sacrifice” saw Oliver desperately trying to thwart Malcolm Merlyn (John Barrowman)’s plans to destroy the Glades, while Tommy decided between his friend and his father amid Oliver’s memories of fighting Edward Fyers, so what does the first episode of ‘Arrow’ season 2 bring? Will Oliver finally become the hooded hero we know from DC comics?
Read on for your in-depth recap of everything you need to know about ‘Arrow’ season 2 premiere, “City of Heroes!”
Tonight will see The CW's emerald archer 'Arrow' reach into the quiver for a second season, opening up the new year for the Starling City vigilante with season 2 premiere "City of Heroes." Before the new season of 'Arrow' takes aim however, The CW has issued one final full-length trailer for Oliver Queen's return, along with an explosive new clip from the premiere.
Last week we brought you the exclusive reveal that 'Arrow' season 2 had cast 'Dawson's Creek' star Dylan Neal as the villainous mad DC scientist Dr. Anthony Ivo, best known to comic fans as the creator of the "Amazo" android. A superpower-mimicking robot seemed a bit too out there for The CW's Green Arrow drama, but has 'Heroes' alum Jimmy Jean-Louis officially signed on for the part?
While the past week brought several exciting 'Arrow' season 2 casting announcements, the October 9 premiere "City of Heroes" has finally let loose its first sustained footage. The big return for Oliver Queen and co. takes us back to the beginning as Felicity and Diggle search for the lost vigilante in the first clip of the season, but what new troubles will they find along the way?
Earlier this week we broke the news that a major DC player would make his presence known in 'Arrow' season 2, but it seems another DC big bad has been confirmed as well. The catch? We've already met him! Season 1 villain Malcolm Merlyn (John Barrowman) may yet return when 'Arrow' season 2 kicks off its sophomore season on October 9, but what about that little hiccup we know to be in place following 'Arrow''s first season finale "Sacrifice"?
Just yesterday we saw our first photographic look into 'Arrow' season 2 with a brand-new still introducing Summer Glau's DC-inspired character Isabel Rochev, but why stop with just one? The CW has let loose the full set of flashy photos from the October 9 season 2 premiere, "City of Heroes," with more Summer, shootouts galore, and a glimpse of what's to come this season!
We're still a few weeks away from 'Arrow' season 2 premiere "City of Heroes," kicking off an all-new year in Starling City that will introduce the likes of The Flash and Black Canary, but why wait for an early sneak peek? 'Arrow' season 2's first official October 9 premiere photo has arrived, featuring Summer Glau as Isabel Rochev, while a new "City of Heroes" synopsis takes us all around the globe.
Crixus and Naevia live! Earlier we'd heard that 'Arrow' season 2 would continue to expand its DC universe with the addition of famed character Amanda Waller, and it seems The CW's casting choice has already been intimately familiar with one of the regulars. 'Spartacus' star Cynthia Addai-Robinson will take the role, but what will Robinson's Amanda Waller mean for the 'Arrow' universe at large?
Hello post-Labor Day rush! 'Arrow' season 2 won't let loose its fall premiere "City of Heroes" until October 9, but that hasn't stopped The CW from taking aim with a brand new trailer for the DC hero's second season! We've got Hood copycats, Bronze Tiger, Black Canary and more in a fresh new sizzle reel for the Starling City vigilante's second shot!
Earlier in the week we cleared up a bit of 'Arrow' season 2 news that suggested an upcoming episode title would pay homage to Batman villain Ra's Al Ghul, instead referencing a more general take on DC comic group the "League of Assassins." Now, their leader has a familiar face, as 'Homeland' big bad Navid Negahban has joined the cast in another villainous role.
