This October will see the triumphant return of every one of the CWâ€™s fun DC series that include Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl, and Legends of Tomorrow. Of course, the show that started this entire universe was none other than Arrow, a series that began as one manâ€™s journey to save his city from the corrupt. Over the course of a few seasons, however, Arrow quickly devolved into a rather goofy show that became less about Oliver Queenâ€™s mission than it did about him reacting to a bunch of otherworldly baddies rearing their ugly heads in Starling City.
Interest in the series has seemed to wane as time went on, with the show focusing too much on fitting itself into a larger world, and not enough on Oliver Queenâ€™s original mission.
With Season 5, however, the executive producers have indicated that this will be a return to form for Oliver Queen. Instead of having him take on a magical being this season, heâ€™ll be taking on Prometheus, a man whoâ€™s out for Oliver Queenâ€™s blood for some unknown reason. Prometheus doesnâ€™t have any powers, but if the few images weâ€™ve seen of him recently are indication, heâ€™s probably pretty good with a bow and arrow himself.
Given the impending season, the CW has decided to throw out a brand new poster, which I would argue hints at this new, grounded season.
Check it out below!
As you can see, the poster itself is rather simple, focusing solely on Oliver Queen. It even has the tagline: â€œHis fight. His city. His legacy,â€ which I hope means heâ€™ll be going more solo this time around. Whatâ€™s more is the act that weâ€™re looking up at himâ€¦from the ground. Yes, reading into that as an implication that this season will be more â€œgroundedâ€ is certainly a stretch, but I certainly hope thatâ€™s the case.
What do you think of this poster? Let us know in the comments down below!
Arrow Season 5 premieres on the CW on Wednesday, October 5 at 8/7c.
