The CW has finally begun releasing photos for the premiere episode of Arrow season 3. Most of them, at this point, are relatively tame (okay, a lot tame), but I’d expect that something a bit more dramatic will be released in time.
In the photos, we see a close-up of Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) dressed as Arrow, looking over his shoulder, Oliver standing with Laurel (Katie Cassidy) as they both watch her father Quentin (Paul Blackthorne) give a press conference, Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) walking after a determined looking Oliver, and Black Canary/Sara Lance (Caity Lotz) taking center stage with her black leather costume and metal bow staff.
A new trailer, released back in July, gave fans a glimpse at season 3’s “Big Bad” and just how nervous Oliver is to have to face this new baddie in town.
In a a more recent teaser, we got a glimpse of the developing romantic relationship between Oliver and Felicity (or Olicity, for the shippers), but certain hints at season 3 suggest that the relationship will not start off on such an easy course.
The third season of Arrow will see the arrival of a few new faces, like Wildcat (J.R. Ramirez), Felicity’s mother (Charlotte Ross), Manhunter (David Cubitt), and Katana (formerly Devon Aoki, now Rila Fukushima).
Arrow season 3, episode 1 “The Calm” will premiere on October 8, 2014 on The CW.
