Arrow is an adaptation of the DC comic book about a billionaire named Oliver Queen who is a skilled archer. After Queen loses his wealth, he uses his skills to become a Robin Hood-like superhero in the fictional Star City.
Stephen Amell plays the vigilante superhero, while Gossip Girl actress Katie Cassidy stars as a clinic attorney who is the main love interest to Queen.
Directed by Smallville's David Nutter, the pilot also features Willa Holland, Annie Ilonzeh, Paul Blackthorne, Jamey Sheridan, Colin Donnell, Susanna Thompson and David Ramsey.
The CW executive Thom Sherman previously called the television adaptation "sophisticated and edgy".
He said: "It's very provocative and sophisticated and edgy. It's not as comic book-y as Smallville or other [superhero projects] from other networks."
