The CW has been dropping trailers left and right, but if you thought Arrow hung up the bow after its first full Season 4 trailer, you’ve literally got another thing coming. Not only does the latest Season 4 spot finally namedrop the “Green Arrow,” but Damien Darhk also shows off skills that might make him the biggest bad to date.

At long last, Arrow Season 4 finally set its sights on a Season 4 trailer at Dragon Con, and there’s a new day in Star City, chock full of Legend-ary heroes. We couldn’t help diving way deeper into every frame of footage, so what secrets of Arrow Season 4 did we unmask?
The early scheduling of Comic-Con 2015 left Arrow without any Season 4 footage to show off at the big Superhero Saturday event. We've even seen a bit of Flash Season 2 in recent weeks, but Arrow Season 4 has at last debuted the motherlode with a full trailer. It's a new day in Star City, with a new look and a new name, and Legends will rise!
Many of comics’ most popular heroes have been around for decades, and in the case of the big names from the publisher now known as DC Comics, some have been around for a sizable chunk of a century. As these characters passed through the different historical eras known in comics as the Golden Age (the late 1930s through the early 1950s), the Silver Age (the mid 1950s through the late 1960s), the Bronze Age (the early 1970s through the mid 1980s) and on into modern times, they have experienced considerable changes in tone and portrayal that reflect the zeitgeist of the time.
With this feature we’ll help you navigate the very best stories of DC Comics’ most beloved characters decade by decade. This week, we’re taking a look at the best Green Arrow comics.
About as long as Arrow has pulled Diggle into the fold, fans have clamored to see David Ramsey’s character suiting up along side Oliver Queen. Oliver even mentioned as much in the Season 3 finale, and Season 4 will finally grant the #TeamArrow regular his own costume, judging by the latest photo. Nope, that’s not Magneto!
Right now, Comixology is offering a big sale themed around DC's various TV projects, and with the impending return of Gotham and its story of a ten year-old billionaire destined to beat up a bunch of senior citizens, it shouldn't come as much of a surprise that Gotham Central is right there, front and center. And yes, obviously you should get that if you don't have it already, because while it was coming out, it was literally the best Batman title of the decade.
But here's the thing: We talk about Gotham Central on this site all the time. I have literally already written a column about how great it is this week, so if you haven't checked it out by now, then it's not for lack of recommendations. If, however, you dig a little deeper into the sale, you're going to find some under-appreciated gems that don't get quite as much press despite being truly fantastic comics --- and by that, I mostly mean Green Arrow: Year One.
While many of us stare vacantly into our Twitter feeds waiting for the promised Arrow Season 4 trailer, the art department for the CW’s vigilante archer aims a bit higher with a first poster. We’ve seen Oliver’s new costume in front of Star City, and now Arrow Season 4 shows us … Oliver’s new costume! In front of Star City! With a tagline!
We’re still waiting on a proper trailer for Arrow Season 4 to glimpse its secrets, but despite the acknowledgement of Green Lantern’s hometown of Coast City, producers have thoroughly shot down the notion of Oliver Queen teaming with any member of the Lantern Corps this year. Or have they? New production art from the season really wants you to believe in an Arrow / Green Lantern teamup.
Arrow Season 4 has yet to debut any official footage (Creator Marc Guggenheim is hard at work on a trailer), but our latest check-in with Star City at least assures that all is well with Olicity. After speeding into the sunset last season, Oliver and Felicity look to be in good spirits with Arrow Season 4's first official photo.
For the past few weeks, the most interesting story going into WWE's SummerSlam event was definitely the tag team match that saw Arrow star Stephen Amell becoming the latest celebrity to step into the wrestling ring. Partnering up with the high-flying Neville, Amell was pit against Stardust, who has been laboring under the impression that Amell was, in fact, the real Green Arrow, Oliver Queen, with this whole "Stephen Amell" thing being a secret identity that fooled all of his viewers, and that his defeat of a superhero would allow him to take his place as pro wrestling's greatest supervillain.
If that sounds a little complicated, it is, but it was also pretty great. Last night, the match finally happened, and as you might expect if you're even slightly familiar with how celebrity appearances work in WWE, Amell and Neville got the win in a match that saw Amell diving from the top rope to the outside on both of his opponents to set up the victory.
