The CW Cuts Arrow as a Movie Trailer

Things are really heating up on Arrow recently, and to plug this week’s important episode, the CW has actually fashioned a full length movie style trailer for the upcoming episode.

No, it doesn’t’ have all the bells and whistle of The Avengers, but it shows that DC really has it together when it comes to TV. Arrow  may not be the greatest show on TV, but damn if it isn’t entertaining week in and week out. They’ve done a fantastic job of bringing a relatively minor character into the spotlight, and filling the show with countless DC regulars who are just as intimidating or cool as their comic counterparts.

Honestly, as of late DC has been more impressive on television than it has on films, Nolan’s Batman trilogy aside. Marvel has a lot to catch up with in that regard, and I’m curious to see what lessons SHIELD or their Netflix shows will take from Arrow.

Watch the trailer above, and tune into Arrow tonight.
