SDCC 2019: CW's trailer for 'Arrow' season 8 teases Oliver Queen's last mission before his death
The teaser gives us an idea of Oliver Queen's mission, which is to help The Monitor stop the coming 'Crisis on Infinite Earths'.
The 'Arrow' panel during the San Diego Comic-Con 2019 saw CW reveal the first teaser trailer for the show's eighth and final season. The teaser gives us an idea of Oliver Queen's mission, which is to help The Monitor (LaMonica Garrett) stop the coming 'Crisis on Infinite Earths', reports TVInsider.
You can watch the trailer of the new season here:
According to The Monitor, Queen will die in the upcoming 'Crisis.' The emerald archer had struck a deal with The Monitor to save his friends and allies, Barry Allen/ Flash (Grant Gustin) and Kara Danvers/ Supergirl from dying.
The trailer starts off with montages of Queen's journey as Arrow, the foes he's fought and the friends he's lost and much of the trailer is about the previous seasons. It all culminates in new footage at the end of the trailer with Queen seemingly attired in a new suit. We also get our first looks at both Donnell (Tommy Merlyn) and Segarra (Adrian Chase). He will also cross paths with John Diggle, who does appear to be our Earth-1 version. The trailer also offers us a look at Laurel Lance/Black Siren (now the Black Canary) in a brand new suit.
Even the show's final season's official synopsis seems to highlight how the green-hooded hero will embark on a journey we'd never seen before. The synopsis begins with describing how our protagonist is no longer in Star City. It states: "After a violent shipwreck, billionaire playboy Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) was missing and presumed dead for five years before being discovered alive on a remote island in the North China Sea. He returned home to Star City, bent on righting the wrongs done by his family and fighting injustice."
"As the Green Arrow, Oliver successfully saved his city with the help of his team including former soldier John Diggle (David Ramsey), computer-science expert Felicity Smoak (Emily Bett Rickards), former protégé Roy Harper (Colton Haynes), street-savvy Rene Ramirez (Rick Gonzalez), metahuman Dinah Drake (Juliana Harkavy), brilliant inventor Curtis Holt (Echo Kellum) and Earth-2 Laurel Lance (Katie Cassidy)."
"In the wake of discovering what his future holds, Oliver will find himself pit against his most challenging battle yet, one that will leave the multiverse hanging in the balance. In Arrow’s final season, Oliver Queen is forced to confront the reality of what it means to be a hero."
The final season of 'Arrow' premieres on CW on October 15, 2019. As mentioned earlier, Arrow season 8 will be the show's last. The 10-episode season will surely mark the end of an era.
