New ARROW Promo, Plus DC Villain Firefly Confirmed
We've seen Deadshot, Deathstroke, China White, The Royal Flush Gang, Huntress and a few other hints at DC Villains. Now we have confirmation that the DC Comics villain Firefly will also appear this season.
Here's a new promo for the CW's net hit superhero drama Arrow, showcasing what a few mainstream media critics thought about the pilot.
And here, we have a description of episode 10 of Arrow courtesy of Zap2It.
"Arrow": In episode 110, Oliver will meet Garfield -- a firefighter who was horribly burned three years ago, and never recovered from the trauma. Since then, he's been abandoned by his wife and kids, and he's now described as a "bitter, vengeful shell of a man." Meanwhile, the Starling City Fire Chief is also haunted by Garfield's injury... since he's the one who was forced to leave Garfield behind to burn.
Based on the description 'Garfield' is none other than Garfield Lynn a.k.a. Firefly. As far as the pilot goes, the show is a ratings success and most critics were pleasantly surprised by the show. Despite 1 and 2-star reviews here (maybe Arrow doesn't appeal to the international audience?), I personally felt the same as most critics, the show was a pleasant surprise and the pilot conveyed a sense of promise that will be up to the cast and writers to deliver upon in coming weeks. Look for my full-review in the coming days.
SYNOPSIS: After a violent shipwreck, billionaire playboy Oliver Queen was missing and presumed dead for five years before being discovered alive on a remote island in the Pacific. When he returns home to Starling City, his devoted mother Moira, much-beloved sister Thea, and best friend Tommy welcome him home, but they sense Oliver has been changed by his ordeal on the island. While Oliver hides the truth about the man he's become, he desperately wants to make amends for the actions he took as the boy he was. Most particularly, he seeks reconciliation with his former girlfriend, Laurel Lance. As Oliver reconnects with those closest to him, he secretly creates the persona of Arrow - a vigilante to right the wrongs of his family, fight the ills of society, and restore Starling City to its former glory. By day, Oliver plays the role of a wealthy, carefree and careless philanderer he used to be - flanked by his devoted chauffeur/bodyguard, John Diggle - while carefully concealing the secret identity he turns to under cover of darkness. However, Laurel's father, Detective Quentin Lance, is determined to arrest the vigilante operating in his city. Meanwhile, Oliver's own mother, Moira, knows much more about the deadly shipwreck than she has let on and is more ruthless than he could ever imagine.
