'Arrow' new season trailer unveiled - video
The 2-minute clip - which features star Stephen Amell in action - was first screened at the New York Comic-Con on Sunday (October 14).
The promo features new footage of Oliver Queen (Amell) during his time marooned on a mysterious land and also provides a first look at guest star John Barrowman (Doctor Who, Torchwood) on the series.
Barrowman will play a character known only as the "well-dressed man", with Arrow exec Andrew Kreisberg recently admitting that he is "a lifelong Doctor Who fan".
"[John is] just such a tremendously talented actor, and [his casting is] one of the things we're most proud of with the show," he said.
Also glimpsed in the trail are DC Comics characters China White (Kelly Hu), Deadshot (Michael Rowe) and the Huntress (Jessica De Gouw).
Arrow airs on Wednesday nights at 8/7c on The CW and will debut on Sky1 in the UK on October 22.
