Deadshot Appears on 'Arrow' Plus Update on Season One

Posted by G-Man (37031 posts) - - Show Bio

Two episodes of Arrow have aired so far and we're already seeing guest stars pop up. This goes along with what the show's creators have said, they're not going to hold back. We've already seen a tease and glimpse of Deathstroke, who will be appearing in an upcoming episode but Ollie will be facing another threat this week.

In this week's episode, "Lone Gunman," Ollie wants to take out the world's greatest assassin, Deadshot. And by "take out," I don't mean for a pizza or to the movies. The CW has released a preview to the episode today.

As for how the show is doing, it seems people do like it. Stephen Amell mentioned this morning that the show has been picked up for a full season. Who knows what other guest stars we may see this year.

Huffington Post also pointed out that the October 10 premiere brought The CW their best ratings in three years with 4 million viewers.

Arrow airs Wednesdays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on The CW.

Arrow has been amazing so far! Sadly, I don't get the CW (frickin' Cablevision...) but I'll watch it once they put it online a week later.

The monocle looks rather absurd without the mask underneath.

This show is way better than I thought it would be

Not as cheesy as most CW shows

Mmmm...they just can't seem to nail Deadshot in live action shows. Would have been nice if they'd went with his Arkham City look.

Arrow just started showing here in the UK today, and having just watched the first episode, I'm really looking forward to seeing more.

This show is so obviously a CW show (in that you have a bunch of young, hot people doing unrealistic things), but its better than most of the networks shows. It still has its cheesy moments, his whole "YOU HAVE FAILED YOU CITY!" is not super intimidating and he sounds like a kid off of 90210 trying to be menacing, but whatever its not that bad.

I actually do watch a lot of CW. Just cause I watch all kinds of shows...i'm not all that picky, and this is one of their better shows.

Surprised me just how good it is. Also...Katie Cassidy is hot, so...whatever shows she is on, I will follow.

Arrow has actually been surprisingly good. im annoyed that they screwed up Dinah horribly but other than that i really like it. if they had done something like this for the GA comic in the New 52 it would be readable.

The show has been pretty good. I can only say that the acting and choreography need to be taken up a few notches. It's good and entertaining, but it could be better. Ollies fight scenes just don't do it for me.

Arrow is currently scoring 72% on Metacritic, and I'd tend to agree. It's good... but not great. I'm wondering if they'll bring any meta-human elements into it at all, or keep it as grounded as they can. I mean, will Dinah ever get her powers?

Love This Show! ^_^

Thought there was a typo and said 'deadpool appears on 'arrow'... Must be seeing things... Or am I. Really looking forward to this episode, this series has gotten better each episode

Deadshot isn't the world's greatest assassin. Deathstroke is.

I am glad to here that Arrow did get picked up for a full season. I am happy that they are including DC villains instead of Smallville k-rated freak of the week villains. I cannot wait to see what the Huntress looks like!

@TheMess1428: Pretty sure he's the world's best mercenary. I believe there's a difference. 
 
I think this show is looking pretty spiffy. Definitely getting to like it. However, it'll be pretty interesting to see how Green Arrow fares against somebody who can actually aim -_-. Just sayin.

I haven't seen the 2nd episode yet, but I liked the first. I cannot wait to see both. Looks good.

This show is fantastic! I have been a huge fan of green arrow for a while and when this show started I was really worried. When the first episode came on I was blown away! So much action and very a good story, that is close to the comic, poor acting but I have seen worse from the CW. I hope to see more villains like count vertigo, brick, and maybe merlyn could start some stuff. Who knows what could happen. What if CW allows Hal Jordan to appear. There could be a green arrow green lantern team up! All I know is that someone big is going to appear this season. Much bigger than Deathstroke. I just have that feeling.

#23 Posted by YourNeighborhoodComicGeek (20387 posts) - - Show Bio

Even better when Deathstroke appears on Arrow!

#24 Posted by RedheadedAtrocitus (6885 posts) - - Show Bio

I just don't like how big and steampunkish Deadshot's monocle looks, but that's my only criticism. Otherwise, I'm happy this has been picked up for a full season!

Sometimes I just want to put a bullet thru the head of every art director who thinks Deadshot looks better with his monocle/scope/eye-piece but not the full face mask. I admit, bright silver metallic doesn't exactly conceal your position as a sniper, but, what is a better idea for a sniper: giving him a cowboy hat, or no head covering at all, or a giving him a ski-mask/balaclava to conceal his identity and prevent the shine off his face from giving away his position?!

As far as I'm concerned, it's the only way to make the scope not look absolutely stupid. Batman Gotham Knights, Smallville, Arkham City, and now Arrow have somehow made Deadshot look MORE like a comic book character (in the negative connotation) than he looks in the comics.

I'm enjoying the shows thus far, even though I'm not a fan of Green Arrow. Definitely looking forward to see more shows this fall! Keep 'em coming! :)

#27 Posted by jstndmnd (1018 posts) - - Show Bio

can't wait. I'm glad they are bringing in more characters from the comics.

You can watch it on the cw's website. I'm not POSITIVE, but I believe they upload the entire episode either a few hours later or the next day. I watched last week's episode on Thursday morning.

There are commercial breaks, but they are short, and the show is uploaded wonderfully. Check it out!

Haha, trust me, if it were steampunk, it would a hell of a lot better. With a smaller, more focused lens This seems to be kind of almost a large gun scope put on some straps. I almost wish they had given him a -punk monocle, then it would be both spiffy, and appear to actually do something

His eye-pieces looks pretty bulky to me... Not sure if I love how his costume was done here but I'm excited to see Deadshot in action all the same.

Really loving this show, they just showed the first one in the UK last night but i managed to also watch the second one....its soo good! Glad to see they are adding in so many DC villains in so far, should make for interesting viewing.

Not to mention CW is an over-the-air broadcast network. I find it sad that people these days have forgotten that they don't have to pay someone for all the major networks. People, we get HI DEF programming OTA via rabbit ears and compatible televisions with built in tuners (which most people have these days). That's NBC, ABC, CBS, FOX and CW.

You know what stuck me about episode 2? That Queen Industries just unveiled their Applied Sciences R&D department. You know, the same dept that Lucius Fox runs for Bruce Wayne in the The Dark Knight trilogy? Hint hint. See what they did there? In other words, they can do 'metahuman' via technology. If written right, it won't seem cheesy. Dinah Lance having some sort of sonic emitter device? Its possible!

Yeah I would not mind that.

Although Black Canary did not have any Canary Cry during a period of time. Also in Grell's era.

The show is good but I hope that Deadshot gets a cooler look than that.
