SDCC: "Arrow" Debuts Season 2 Sizzle Reel

With the "Arrow" presentation under way at Comic-Con International in San Diego, The CW has released an action-filled sizzle reel for Season 2 that confirms the time jump, and provides the first look at Summer Glau as Isabel Rochev and Caity Lotz as Black Canary.

Although the first half of the video is devoted to the events of the first season, covering the destruction of part of the Glades and the deaths of Malcolm and Tommy Merlyn, the second half sets the stage for Season 2: Oliver Queen (star Stephen Amell) left Starling City and hung up his bow after failing to stop the Undertaking and save his best friend, apparently creating a vacuum for Roy Harper (Colton Haynes) to begin to come into his own, and for a new vigilante to appear.

And in a move those should please many DC Comics fans, Oliver states he no longer wants to be called "the Hood," and hints at the possibility of a name much more familiar.

"Arrow" returns Wednesday, Oct. 9 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on The CW.
