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!

Recapping a bit of 'Arrow''s first season in how Oliver Queen and co. lost the battle, the new 'Arrow' season 2 trailer promises they won't lose the war. In addition to new Hood copycats plaguing the city (shades of 'The Dark Knight,' anyone?) the new footage shows off a brief look at Bronze Tiger (Michael Jai White) circling Oliver with China White (Kelly Hu), as well as both Laurel (Katie Cassidy) and the mysterious Black Canary taking names as they...well, you know.

"What doesn't kill me, only makes me...sharper," Oliver warns the camera. Oh, indeed, Mr. Queen. Oh, indeed.

In addition to incorporating Amanda Waller, 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), League of Assasins member Al-Owal (‘Homeland”s Navid Negahban) and DC character Sin (‘The Killing”s Bex Taylor Klaus). Guest stars Colton Haynes (Roy Harper), Emily Bett Rickards (Felicity Smoak) and Manu Bennett (Slade Wilson) have all been upgraded to series regulars for the second year in Starling City.

Well, what are you waiting for? Head back to Starling City with the 'Arrow' season 2 trailer above, and give us your wishlist for the new season in the comments!
