Literal magic may be out of the picture, but can Arrow Season 5 get the figurative kind back? Our first photos of the October 5 premiere are certainly looking good, as a new dark archer takes center stage, while Oliver faces new bad guys in past and present.

Following a first look at The Flash Season 3, The CW released the full photo set from Arrow Season 5 premiere “Legacy.” Not only do we get a closer look at the mysterious “Prometheus,” but also a sense of Oliver’s new Mayoral lifestyle, and the Bratva origins that got him there.

In addition to The Wire star Chad Coleman taking the role of new baddie Tobias Church, alongside flashback villain Dolph Lundgren, wayward vigilantism appears to be a major theme for Arrow Season 5, following the return of Madison McLaughlin as a new Artemis, as well additions of Wil Traval’s Human Target, Rick Gonzalez’s Wild Dog, and Josh Segarra’s “Vigilante.” Carly Pope has also joined in a recurring role as a Coast City reporter, with a comic attachment to Green Lantern, while former WWE wrestler Stardust will also put in an appearance.

We’ll likely hear more of Arrow Season 5 soon, but check out the first trailers below.
