Once again, the DC universe goes under the spotlight, that too at Fan Expo 2012. Andrew Kreisberg, Greg Berlanti and Marc Guggenheim bring to the world of television the story of DC’s Green Arrow in CTV’s upcoming new television series Arrow. The story revolves around playboy billionaire Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) who goes missing after a violent shipwreck. He was presumed dead for 5 years until being discovered alive on a remote island in the Pacific. A “changed” man, Oliver sets about making right the mistakes he and his family have done. In the process, he takes on the persona of a vigilante – Arrow – to conceal his identity in his quest for “fixing” the society he knows and understands.
The series stars Stephen Amell as Oliver Queen/Arrow, Colin Donnell as Tommy Merlyn, Katie Cassidy as Dinah “Laurel” Lance and Willa Holland as Thea Queen. The four of them joined us in Toronto at Fan Expo 2012 for a special pilot screening, Q&A and autograph session. As always, The Arts Scene was geared and ready to capture every moment. See the photos below for a recap of the awesome event, attended in full capacity on a Sunday morning!
