The pilot episode of Arrow is only a few weeks away from its 10 October debut on CW in the US, and now a clip has been released from the episode. It’s the first extended sequence of its kind for the pilot, which is directed by veteran David Nutter and written by Andrew Kreisberg and Marc Guggenheim, based on a story by Greg Berlanti and Marc Guggenheim.
The clip seems to be one of the first reveals of Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) in full character mode as Arrow (or as we will always know him, Green Arrow). It’s only a few shades away from someone yelling “Who are you?” and Bruce Wayne dropping in from the ceiling. The superhero world is much darker in the wake of Christopher Nolan.
The promising premise hasn’t looked quite as good in the last few clips, so perhaps it’s best to wait a few weeks and judge this in its context.
